Custom Hearing Protection:
We offer custom-made hearing protection solutions for a variety of applications. Common settings where custom earmolds are beneficial include working in a noisy environment, playing an instrument or attending concerts, keeping water out of the ear canal, or reducing the sound of a snoring spouse. We first take an impression of your ear in our office and send it to the manufacturer. Each earmold is crafted in Kitchener, ON at Bernafon Earmold Design.

This is a solid shell style plug with up to NRR 26dB (CSA Class A & AL) when made in the standard New-Sil. This has the most attenuation we offer in a noise plug. Sentinel is a good choice when attenuation is the most important requirement and the ability to communicate is not as important.
This is a vented, shell style plug with a small filter inside the vent. With good attenuation and moderate clarity, this plug delivers up to an NRR of 20dB (CSA Class B) when made in the standard New-Sil. The Noise Braker is a good choice when attenuation is needed along with the ability to still hear some of the low frequencies.
Sentinel and Noise Braker plugs are available with several options upon request which include: style (shell, ½ shell or canal), handles, strings, metal ball bearings (for detection purposes), clips, swirls and sparkles. Note: a style change from shell may affect the attenuation.
ER Musician Plugs
Musician Earplugs were designed to protect hearing while preserving all the subtleties and richness of music. Other earplugs, particularly foam, muffle sound so music and speech are not heard distinctly. Music and speech reproduced through these earplugs sounds exactly as it would in an ear without an earplug, but at a lower (safer) loudness level. Musicians practice and perform in a variety of different settings and they are exposed to high levels of sound, sometimes for long periods. They require different amounts of hearing protection depending on the sound levels they encounter during rehearsals and performances.
Swim Molds combine fashion and function in custom swim plugs. Choose from an array of bright colours including pink, neon green, purple, yellow, and orange. Or if you prefer more subtle colours: blue, light brown, medium brown, dark brown, semi-transparent clear, flesh, white, red and black. You can choose one colour or swirl two or three! Swim Molds are soft to the touch yet tough enough for every day use.
They provide excellent sealing qualities. A handle and string are standard on all Swim Molds.
