Hearing protection for musicians
Musicians require hearing protection but still need to be able to hear the environment around them. In an effort to help musicians, manufacturers have created special monitors, earplugs and earmolds that will keep musicians rocking without putting their hearing at risk.
Earplugs and earmolds
Hearing Aid Consultants of North Mississippi can work with musicians of any type, from rock and rollers to orchestra maestros, to create a custom-made earplug or earmold. In addition, custom earmolds can be fitted with a filtered attenuator, which allows musicians to hear the environment around them without damaging their hearing.
Monitors for musicians
Monitors are custom-made headphones that both block out external noise and deliver the monitor mix directly to a musician’s ears. Monitors replace traditional floor monitors and, most importantly, protect against high levels of ambient noise, that can be permanently damaging to a musician’s hearing.
