Hearing Protection

Your hearing is precious. Once it is gone, you can’t get it back. Safeguard your hearing with hearing protection from Peninsula Family Hearing. We take the same care in fitting custom hearing protection as we do in fitting hearing aids.

Whether you need protection for sports, hobbies, work or just a little help getting a better night’s sleep, turn to Peninsula Family Hearing. Custom hearing protection solutions are comfortable to wear and provide the highest levels of protection.

Earmolds And Earplugs

Earmolds and earplugs can be custom made for a fit that’s comfortable for hours of wear. Earmolds are worn in the bowl of the ear. They can be solid or soft and spongy. Earplugs are worn in the ear canal. Some are solid, and others are soft. Both custom earmolds and earplugs are formed from a casting of your ear.

Custom Fitting Process

Come into Peninsula Family Hearing and discuss your hearing protection needs with our caring staff. We’ll match the available technology with your needs to recommend a solution that protects your hearing and is so comfortable; you will want to wear it. A mold is cast of your outer ear bowl or ear canal, similar to the hearing aid fitting process. The molds are then shipped to a laboratory where the protector will be manufactured to the exact shape of your ear. Not only does this make the device more comfortable to wear, but it also helps it stay in place when you talk, chew or eat.

Musician Earplugs And Monitors

Musicians and music teachers have unique hearing protection needs. Every practice and every performance can damage hearing. But traditional earplugs and molds don’t allow you to hear instruments clearly and voices may be occluded.

Earplugs for musicians reduce decibel exposure without distorting the sound. You hear naturally and at safe levels. In-ear monitors allow you to hear sounds as the audience hears them, but without harmful amplification.

Types Of Hearing Protection

Peninsula Family Hearing has numerous styles of hearing protection with a wide variety of features.


Like musicians, hunters have unique hearing protection needs. It’s important to hear background noise from game or fellow hunters but protect against the sound of firearms. Hunting hearing protection uses a filter that instantaneously closes when dangerous noise levels are reached. Otherwise, you always hear normally.


Musicians, concertgoers and nightclub waiters and bartenders need to dial back the decibels while still hearing sound clearly and accurately. Music hearing protection reduces the decibel level without distortion. 


Constant exposure to water can lead to chronic ear infections that damage hearing. Traditional earplugs may not seal tightly and allow water into the canal. Swimmer’s earplugs seal tightly and stay in place even when diving.

Occupational Plugs


About 22 million American workers are exposed to dangerous levels of noise at work each year. The limit for occupational noise exposure is 85 decibels averaged over 8 hours. Occupational hearing protection meets OSHA and NIOSH requirements to keep you in compliance.
