Noise-induced hearing loss (NIHL) is caused by repeated exposure to excessive noise levels or even brief exposure to a sudden loud noise, such as an explosion. There are tiny hair cells in our ears which transmit signals for the brain to interpret as sound. When these are damaged by pressure waves (sound waves), the transmission of signals from the inner ear to the brain is also affected, so your hearing deteriorates.
The damage caused to the hair cells in your ears is permanent, which means the hearing loss is irreversible. However, it can be prevented with good quality hearing protection. Loud working environments used to be a primary contributor to NIHL, leading to the introduction of the Control of Noise at Work Regulations 2005. Nowadays, recreational activities like shooting and motor sports can be a more significant cause of noise-induced hearing loss.
Afti Ear Room can provide custom-made ear plugs and in-ear monitors for more specialist use. We offer bespoke hearing protection ear plugs, for musicians and DJ's ear plugs that lower the volume without compromising sound clarity. Ear plugs for motor sport that have a low profile to fit comfortably under a helmet. Also, ear plugs for shooting, music-lovers, swimming, sleeping and commuters on the trains, airplanes and buses.
