At Living Well Ohio we make custom earmolds for a number of reasons:

  • Swim Molds. These are used to prevent water from entering the ear. Such instances for use would be when there is a perforation of the eardrum (either naturally acquired or through surgery). Surgically placed PE tubes to relieve middle ear fluid build-up is very often cause for swim protectors.
  • Musician Plugs. These plugs are specially made to reduce sound by a given amount of decibels (dB). Typically, the reduction is either 9, 15, or 25 dB. The sound is reduced by a given amount across the auditory spectrum. This means that the quality of the music is not altered by the plug… only that the sound is reduced in amplitude. An ordinary earplug will reduce high notes more effectively than low-pitched notes. This will give the listener more of a bass sound, with little of the sharper qualities of the music.
  • Noise Plugs. These are custom plugs, which fit the ear and block out as much sound as possible. Uses include construction, noisy concerts, streets and light rails, and noisy neighbors.
  • Sleep Plugs. Sometimes it is difficult to go to sleep when there is ambient noise.  These are designed to promote comfortable and uninterrupted sleep. Great for shift workers and credited with saving many a relationship!
  •  Hearing Aid Molds. Hearing aid molds do break down and have to be replaced depending on use and normal wear and tear. Living Well Ohio offers a wide variety from the most trusted ear mold manufacturers in the world.
  • Motorsport. These plugs are designed primarily for motorcyclists to wear under a helmet to help eliminate wind noise, the Motorsport is made in a soft vinyl material and features a hollow canal style for greatest comfort.

Originally designed for use while surface swimming or showering to prevent moisture from entering the ear canal, the molds are all superb sound attenuators. They are available in a variety of colors and color combinations, with a Noise Reduction Rating of 27 dB.
