These precision in-ear monitors will be music to your ears at every performance, every time.

To perform your best, you need to hear your best. Stage performers are routinely exposed to hearing damage both from amplifiers and the ear monitors that must be turned up to potentially harmful levels just so that they can be heard above the music. Inside-the-ear musician’s monitors replace traditional wedge-shaped monitors with precise, isolated sound delivered directly to you, so that you can stay in tune and perform your best.

Today’s professional musicians know that the superior fit and sound quality of in-ear monitors provide clearer sound and effective sound monitoring at much lower volume levels. This means you can hear and perform your best while protecting your hearing from the prolonged exposure to loudspeakers and from damage to your hearing — one of your most precious resources as a musician.

Custom-Fit Monitors

Our custom-molded in-ear monitors are fitted into medical-grade silicone earmolds that are comfortable for extended periods of wear and form a superior acoustic seal to give you just the sound you need. Precision drivers, integrated crossovers, and discreet cable connections make these professional-quality audio monitors second to none in terms of sonic quality, all in a package that is unobtrusive and will never stand between you and a great performance.

Custom Swim Plug

Swim plugs are ideal for anyone who spends a lot of time in the water or is prone to ear infections. You can get them in any color, including swirls, glitter and glow-in-the-dark. While designed for swimming or showering to prevent moisture from entering the ear canal, custom swim plugs also provide superb all-around noise reduction. They have integral finger grips for easy removal and they float.

Custom Protection for Sleeping

So many factors go into what makes a good night’s sleep — something that many people strive for but struggle with every day for one reason or another. Our practice believes in taking charge of what you can control, like blocking out nighttime noises that keep you awake when you should be resting deeply. Whether it’s the result of street noise, loud neighbors, or a snoring partner, our custom-fit ear protection is so comfortable, you’ll barely know it’s there — because you’ll be sleeping too soundly to notice.

A lack of sleep can lead to psychiatric troubles and is tied to a multitude of other health issues. Getting poor sleep at night means you go to work the next day tired, have low energy and poor concentration, and are probably more stressed than you otherwise would have been. Contact Audiology Associates of Deerfield today for a solution to snoring, traffic, loud neighbors, and other factors that can ruin the most important part of your night.

Custom Earbuds Better Than Headphones?

Media and music are more accessible than ever, making earbuds and headphones essential. With the rise in technology, it’s no surprise that there’s a rise in hearing loss. According to the National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders (NIDCD), 13 percent of Americans ages 12 years or older have hearing loss in both ears.

Benefits of Custom Earbuds

Listen and Learn: Think about when you turn up your headphones. It’s probably during your favorite song, or to block out background noise. This common theme is what really hurts your hearing. With custom earbuds, you don’t have to worry about that annoying background noise; their secure, custom fit allows you to hear what you want to and not what you don’t. Noise-cancelling headphones are also a good option.

Plus, you can pick the colors of your technology, which adds to their appeal!

How to Protect Your Hearing When Using Earbuds

There are other ways to reduce the effects of loud music on your hearing.

  • Be conscious of your volume (most listening devices allow you to set a warning when you’ve turned up the volume to a possibly harmful level).
  • Be conscious of how long you’re listening to your music and at what volume.
  • Don’t believe the myth that certain music is more damaging than others; it’s all the same. What really matters is the decibel level and the length of time you listen.
  • Try the 60/60 rule — listening to your headphones or earbuds at 60% volume for 60 minutes at a time.
