You only have two eardrums and they cannot be repaired except in very specific circumstances if they were to ever be damaged. Once you cause severe damage to your eardrum and other inner components of your ear, you may never hear the same way again. Whether you love to visit multiple concerts a year, cannot keep yourself off your surfboard, or just love to take a swim in your free time, moulded earplugs can make a big difference.
You use your sense of hearing every single day and you are often exposed to sounds as high as 80 decibels. This is something your ears are adept at handling and there is no risk to you eventually losing hearing with this type of interaction alone. However, exposure to sounds over 85 decibels for long periods of time can cause permanent hearing loss. At best, you may need to occasionally ask people to repeat themselves. At worst, you lose the ability to hear out of one or both ears for the rest of your life.
However, custom-moulded earplugs by Zenplugs help you avoid such un-pleasantries and focus on the things you enjoy without fear. Consider, for instance, that you love to go to concerts and you visit multiple locations a year to listen to some of your favourite bands. On average, concerts last about five hours and the noise levels peak at 100 decibels and tend to stay there until the end of the show. Moulded earplugs fit firmly in your ear and dampen sound without reducing the quality or your ability to hear the music. In short, they simply soften the blow of the sound to your eardrums rather than blocking it out altogether. This, of course, is but one of the many reasons to consider these earplugs.
Known in the medical field as exostosis, surfer’s ear is an affliction suffered by those who repeatedly subject their ears to cold water and cold wind. Bony growths begin to close the ear canal, leading to eventual loss of hearing, tinnitus, and further infections. Although this is a rather gradual condition, do not think that you are immune to it because you are young. You will not even realise that the problem has started until it is far too late to treat. Moulded earplugs protect your ears from cold water and wind, effectively stopping you from developing the problem in the first place.
Swimmer’s ear is the popular term for the rather nasty infection of the ear developed due to dirty water becoming trapped inside the ear canal. The infection can happen to a person of any age and those with surfer’s ear are more likely to develop this condition. Infections are serious and you can experience permanent damage if they are left untreated. However, moulded earplugs block 100% of the water from reaching you inner ear and the fact that they are moulded to your specific ear shape should keep them firmly in place. Disposable options do not fit properly and are more likely to fall out, become stuck, or allow water to leak through.
