How To Use Silicone Rubber Ear Plugs To Preventing Hearing Loss
May 27, 2017

The ears are fragile structures that can be damaged in many ways, so it's not always possible to prevent hearing loss.

The risk of your hearing being damaged by loud noises depends on how loud the noises are and how long you're exposed to them. Experts agree that continued exposure to noise at or above 85dB (similar to a lawn mower or loud traffic) can, over time, cause hearing loss.

However, by following the advice below it's possible to reduce your risk of noise-induced hearing loss (hearing loss from loud noise):

Don't have your television, radio or music on too loud. This is particularly important if you have young children in the house, because their ears are more delicate than an adult’s. If you can't have a comfortable conversation with someone who is two metres (about 6.5ft) away from you, turn the volume down. You shouldn't have dull hearing or ringing in your ears after listening to music.

Use hearing protection liquid silicone rubber earplugs with filter that block out more outside noise, rather than turning up the volume. You can buy high elasticity, low viscosity and safety silicone rubber anti-noise earplugs for your existing headphones that block out more outside noise, or noise cancelling headphones.

Use ear protection equipment such as earmuffs or earplugs if you work in a noisy environment, such as a pub, nightclub, a garage workshop or on a building site. It's important to insert earplugs correctly to gain the benefit of wearing them.

Use earplug structure design make the wearing is easy to put in and out, and not easy to slip down, to  prevent lost, with both ends of a rope connected.

Don't insert objects into your ears or your children’s ears. This includes fingers, cotton buds, cotton wool and tissue.

Be aware of the symptoms of common causes of hearing loss, such as ear infections (otitis media) and so on.
