Our flex-evaluation allows you to take home and try hearing aids for a period of two weeks. The hearing aids’ capture data and log your listening situations to ensure that, at the follow-up appointment, we can make an educated decision backed with data to determine the best hearing aid solution that best suits you and your lifestyle.

Custom Ear Plugs
Custom earplugs offer excellent protection from potential hearing loss because they are made from molds of your ears. We offer a variety of custom earplugs designed specifically for different activities such as:
- Musicians Plugs: Custom earplugs designed for musicians, work by reducing sounds evenly, resulting in music and speech that is quieter, yet natural. Musician earplugs come with interchangeable attenuators that offer different levels of sound reduction for a variety of listening conditions.
- Swimmers Plugs: When moisture enters the ear canals, it can cause itchiness, pain and infection. This may lead to a condition called swimmer’s ear, which can cause permanent hearing loss if untreated.
- Hearing Protection: High decibel levels in the workplace are a leading cause of hearing loss. Even though the use of hearing protection in industrial settings has been mandated, standard earplugs don’t always offer adequate protection from noisy equipment and machinery. Custom industrial strength earplugs provide hearing protection for the most extreme high decibel situations.
