October 1, 2020 – Big Ear, Inc., a company specializing in products that provide custom hearing protection, has released a revolutionary hearing protection device. Our custom earplugs were created to protect marching band members from long-term hearing loss.
Surveys of universities reveal that more than 60% of band members suffer from tinnitus, or ringing in their ears, and more than 50% suffer from noise-induced hearing loss. According to the World Health Organization, this condition has escalated over the past 20 years.
Big Ear Inc., is the premier manufacturer of custom-fit hearing protection for musicians. The process uses a custom mold made from each individuals’ ears allowing for a perfect fit and maximum protection. Our Musician Earplug TrainerTM is a premium standard that allows clear full-spectrum hearing with no pressure or occluded feeling. For students requiring variable protection and sound, our proprietary dual filter system allows band members to play with full protection, or for those in woodwind ensembles, to have less protection and more hearing.
This Hearing Protection Device comes with 5 different levels of filters (30dB, 25dB, 20dB, 15dB, and 9dB) in addition to a noise blocker. These filters can be changed depending on the environment. The 20dB filter is best for marching or concert band/orchestra and can be switched to a lower filter for ensemble or solo rehearsal. The blocker is for extremely noisy environments or for sleeping/studying. As this product attenuates across all frequencies, rather than just low and mid, it provides clearer and more natural sound.
From marching bands to orchestral groups, to percussion and brass ensembles, hearing loss presenting a serious threat to our musicians. Custom earplugs can protect their hearing so they can enjoy playing music now and well into the future.
