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. Optional extras include neck cords, 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 ReSound Hearing and Pacific Ears. If you have a preferred supplier, feel free to discuss this with us.
Please note: Our previous preferred supplier (Phoenix) is no longer in business, so some of the colour options pictured (glitter and 2 colour) are no longer available. Depending on the supplier selected, there will be a number of colour options available to you that you may select on the day.
Custom noise plugs provide maximum protection against excessive and potentially damaging noise exposure, with up to 40dB attenuation. Suitable for construction workers, metal workers and heavy machinery operators. For extremely high noise conditions, custom plugs may be worn under ear muffs.

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.
