Why is hearing protection important?

Extended exposure to noise, loud sounds, or activities involving water (i.e. swimming) have been found to greatly affect your ability to hear. Often times, these factors give way to conditions like tinnitus (see FAQ section below) or hearing loss.

Why pursue custom hearing protection?

With custom hearing protection designed to fit your specific hearing capabilities, you eliminate the chance of poorly fitting devices, possible ear pain, and discontinued use.

Audiologists are specially-trained and knowledgeable when it comes to the fitting process as well as selecting the device best-suited to meet your individual need.

Should I consider hearing protection methods?

If you answer “Yes” to any of these questions, you may want to pursue hearing protection with Hauser-Ross. Schedule a consultation
  • Are you constantly in loud or noisy environments?
  • Do sounds seem mumbled or at a lower volume than you once remember?

Frequently Asked Questions

What is tinnitus?
Tinnitus (ringing in the ears) is a common complaint of people with hearing loss. Tinnitus can be described as any hissing, whistling, roaring, buzzing, or ringing that can be perceived as pulsatile, intermittent, or constant.

The sound may be present in one or both ears and can usually be classified as either acute or chronic in nature.
What causes tinnitus?
There isn’t a clear-cut reason why people experience tinnitus. Studies suggest fatigue, stress, certain medications, noise exposure, and presence of hearing loss. During your case history, it is important to let the Audiologist know if you are experiencing tinnitus.
