Musicians Ear Plugs

Musician ear plugs are a customized special type of ear plug used by musicians to protect their hearing. Ear plugs used to keep out loud noise usually provide better protection against high pitch sounds than low pitch sounds.

Listening to music with conventional ear plugs can distort the sound quality and make it difficult for musicians to hear and play in tune.

Musician earplugs provide the solution to this problem. This special type of plug provides protection in an even way across all pitches and allows the musician to hear the music in tune, just at a softer volume.

There are three different levels of protection: – 10 dB, 15 dB and 25 dB

Being a musician does not mean you have to lose your hearing.

Call now at (03) 6223 5444 for an appointment if you are a musician who requires protection against developing hearing loss and tinnitus.

Industrial Hearing Screening

hearing protection in the workplaceThe Tasmanian Centre for Hearing and its industrial screening business, Sound Advice Tasmania Pty Ltd have been providing services to Tasmanian businesses for over 25 years.  All noise exposed workers should have their hearing monitored to assess whether they are adequately protected against noise in their workplace. Hearing screens can be conducted in the clinic or on-site in our mobile test facilities.

Hearing screening consists of a quick 15 minute test that determines if further testing is required.

Further comprehensive testing may be required to meet the Australian standards for workplace assessments with certain types of hearing problems.

Workers prior to testing should not be exposed to loud noise as this can cause invalid results. The appropriate period of quiet can be achieved by wearing hearing protection that is in good condition prior to testing. Earmuffs are preferable to earplugs.

Workers are asked to bring their hearing protection with them to the hearing screen. Staff can inspect and provide advice on maintenance and care of hearing protection and whether protection levels need to be varied as a result of the hearing screen.

Discounts apply for work places with 4 or more employees.

Call now at (03) 6223 5444 and find out how we can help your workplace met your occupational health and safety requirements for noise exposed workers.
