Hearing loss can be a direct result of an occupation, a recreational activity or simply exposure to loud sounds. Hearing Solution’s protection and enhancement products are the first step in an effective hearing conservation program.
One effect of exposure to loud noise is tinnitus which can sound like ringing, whistling, buzzing or humming in the ears or head. IOM Hearing Solutions can help an individual, employee or employer with their hearing protection requirements and protect against debilitating noise induced hearing loss. As awareness is increasing about long term hearing damage that can be caused from being exposed to loud noise regularly, specialist hearing protection is becoming more popular. Whether you work in a noisy environment or have a hobby such as motorcycling, there are sufficient ways to reduce the risk of damaging your hearing in the long term. Using hearing protection can be discreet, comfortable and fit under head wear including helmets.
A small increase in sound level by 3dB makes the intensity of that sound double (i.e., it is twice as loud). Each time you double the sound intensity, the safe listening time is halved. In fact, listening to 100dB sounds for longer than 15 minutes per day will start to cause damage to your hearing. The louder the sound, the sooner the chance of permanent hearing damage arises. Symptoms such as continued ringing in the ears or temporary hearing loss after a show are signs that you should be using noise protection. If you work, play or are exposed to noise then it is crucial that you protect and take care of your hearing We can recommend the best solutions that will make a difference for you, not only now but in the future.
We have a range of earplugs developed for musicians who need to protect their hearing, but not destroy the fidelity of their music. Gig and club goers, DJs, roadies – anyone who is regularly exposed to loud noise or music, and wants to hear clearly, should protect their important hearing.
In-Ear Monitors are devices used by performers to hear a mix of microphones and/or instruments that are on stage in a live performance. They also serve an important purpose of providing a high level of noise reduction from stage noise levels.

These are also ideal for DJs who use one noise plug and one in-ear monitor at a time.
