37% of hearing loss in Australia is caused by excessive noise exposure, which is preventable.*


Custom ear plugs are a comfortable, discreet and effective form of hearing protection.

Custom ear plugs can be made to suit many purposes and come in a large variety of colours, including two- or three- colour combinations, glitter, glow in the dark, and fluorescent! Optional extras include additional colours (prices reflect one colour per plug as standard), neck cords, name tags, handles and removal lines. 'Modular' musicians plugs also have the option of additional filters with different levels of attenuation that you can change to suit your situation.

We deal with several suppliers including Phoenix, Ear O Tec and Pacific Ears. If you have a preferred supplier, feel free to discuss this with us.

Impressions:

Custom ear plugs are only effective if they are well fitted. For best results, our suppliers require good quality, deep impressions of each ear to be made out of silicone impression material.  It’s a quick and easy procedure, which takes approximately 10 minutes.

Please note: Taking impressions may cause discomfort as the deeper part of the ear canal is very sensitive. It is also not possible to take good impressions if the ear canal is very waxy. If you know you are prone to wax build-up, please have your ears checked by your GP prior to your impression appointment.

Cost:

The prices listed above are for a pair of custom ear plugs through any of our suppliers, and includes your appointments for taking impressions and fitting the plugs. Our Audiologists are also happy to take impressions for your online orders, such as for in-ear monitors, headphone adapters and communication pieces. The appointment would cost $55 (including impressions).
