Hearing Devices & Accessories



Swimolds are the most effective method to seal the ear from water and keep the ear canals dry, which is especially important for those prone to ear infections, swimmers’ ear, or for those with perforations or tympanostomy tubes, etc. They are a soft silicone, float, and come in assorted bright colors.

Assistive Listening Devices and Systems (ALDs):

These devices help eliminate background noise by decreasing the distance between the speaker and the microphone of the aid worn by the hearing impaired listener. Examples include FM (frequency modulated), infrared, and induction loop systems. Specialized “alerting” devices are also included as ALDs. These include items such as telephone amplifiers and flashing lights to notify the hearing impaired individual of the doorbell, telephone ring, alarm clock, baby cry, etc.

Tinnitus Maskers:

Tinnitus(complaints of ear or head ringing or noises) can often be relieved by the use of a tinnitus masker. This device looks similar to a hearing aid and comes in either the Behind-The-Ear or In-The-Ear styles. The device delivers a broad band of noise that surrounds the frequency of the tinnitus. Satisfied users claim that their tinnitus is relieved during use and after the device is removed. It is thought that this occurs due to residual inhibition in the auditory system.

Hearing Protection:

Hearing Protection helps to protect the hearing from permanent noise-induced hearing loss by reducing the noise exposure. There are several types of custom made earplugs as well as earmuffs for a variety of environments. For example, one set of earplugs protect from damaging sound but still allow the user to hear a normal conversation and use the telephone. Another type provides a flat frequency attenuator important for musicians and others who need to reduce noise but still hear accurately. Still another type is perfect for hunters, as it “kicks in” when a certain noise level is reached (e.g. gunfire) while allowing the hunter to hear scurrying in the brush.
