You Won't Believe How Different The Outside World Sounds When You Use These Ear Plugs

Outside Noises

Whether you're taking care of business in the city or staring down a mountain, there's one thing that's guaranteed to ruin your day: loud noises.

Wearing earplugs is a great way to protect your hearing, no matter if you're in a factory or on a hike; just remember that it's not just loud noises that can damage your ears.

The World Health Organization has actually estimated that around 1.1 billion young people are at risk for hearing loss due to unsafe listening habits, regardless of the noise levels in their environment.

Other Questions

How do you clean swimming ear plugs?

Using foam earplugs, the best thing to do is to fill a bowl with cleaning solution – hydrogen peroxide is recommended by many audiologists. To clean, just add the ear plugs into the cleaning solution for a few minutes, then wipe them.

How often should you clean ear plugs?

Ideally, every time that you want to use the earplugs. After we have used them, there will be ear dirt on them. Cleaning using the above method works well.

Can earplugs cause permanent tinnitus?

This is not the case. It may sound like having tinnitus after using the earplugs, as there will be blockages in the ear from swimming. This is not permanent and will soon disappear
