Custom Swim & Musician Ear Plugs
Your ears have unique twists and curves that can make over-the-counter ear plugs less effective. If you need ear protection, you want ear plugs that fit comfortably while providing blockage of harmful sounds or substances. There are many activities that can jeopardize your ears, from shooting firearms to swimming and listening to loud music. At Julie Zweig, MD Integrative Sleep & ENT, we offer custom swim and musician ear plugs for our patients at our ear clinic in Alpharetta, GA.
Swimmer’s Ear Plugs
If you or your child are swimmers, it can be beneficial to have custom ear plugs to keep water out of your ears. Swimmers can be at higher risk for ear infections, especially swimmer’s ear, an infection of the outer ear. Custom swimmer ear plugs are designed to perfectly fit your ears and keep out water, bacteria and other substances that can harm your ears and health. Our ear specialists can help you pick out the color and type of custom ear plugs for water protection – these ear plugs do float and they can be used when swimming, bathing and showering.
Musician Ear Plugs
Loud music may be enjoyable, but it can also harm your ears and cause permanent hearing loss that can be devastating. If you are constantly exposed to loud music as a musician, or just attending concerts or other events, you could benefit from musician’s ear plugs. These custom ear plugs are designed to allow an even frequency of sounds to enter the ears, just at a lower decibel. These are different from foam plugs that work well for general protection, but block certain frequencies more than others and change the sound. Our custom musician’s ear plugs use a filter to allow different attenuation levels so you can enjoy your music fully while protecting your ears from damage.
If you need custom ear plugs for work, play or any activities, come see us at Julie Zweig, MD Integrative Sleep & ENT. We can create the ear plugs you need to block or filter sound, as well as prevent water entering the ears. Contact our team at our audiology clinic to schedule an ear plug consultation.
