Audiology Unlimited Offers Hearing Protection For Musicians, Marlboro, Maryland

Whether you’re a student who plays in a marching band or an adult who jams in rock shows on the weekends, protecting your hearing is of the utmost importance. For more than 30 years, the professional audiologists at Audiology Unlimited have been providing high quality hearing protection for clients in three separate locations throughout Maryland. Noise Induced Hearing Loss is common in musicians who don’t take the proper steps to protect their hearing. Through Etymotic Research and Emtech Laboratories, Dr. Kathy Mellott, Au.D. and her team at Audiology Unlimited can provide custom-made high fidelity earplugs tailored to musicians.

The ETY Plugs® block out noise while still allowing you to hear the music and speech of your fellow musicians. Non-filtered earplugs tend to muffle all sounds, including music, which can be detrimental to your performance. The ETY Plugs® reduce sound levels evenly and allow music and speech to flow clearly. They replicate the natural response of the ear canal so that sounds enter the ear quieter, but unchanged. The high fidelity plugs are also highly beneficial for audiences, as they enhance the music experience while simultaneously protecting hearing. You can also make use of the ETY Plugs® at parades, athletic events, airshows, and motor sports.

The high fidelity ETY Plugs® come in both standard and large sizes, with the standard size fitting most ears. Each package includes a storage case, a chain, and a connecting cord, ensuring that you will never misplace one or both of your plugs. The ready-fit earplugs come at just $15 a pair (including shipping), the price of “a slice of pizza and a soda!” For more information on the ETY Plugs®, hearing protection, hearing, and hearing aids, visit Audiology Unlimited online.

Custom-made musicians earplugs can be made with just one-week turnaround. With an appointment at any of the three offices of Dr. Mellott, impressions are made of the ears and sent to the lab. Custom earplugs come in one of three attenuation strengths: 9dB, 15dB or 25dB, depending upon individual needs, and are more comfortable to wear for extended periods of time than the ready-fit ETY Plugs®. The $180/pair is covered by some insurance companies. Make an appointment for your custom-made or ready-fit musicians earplugs at Audiology Unlimited.
