The Hearing Center Of Lake Charles Adds A Complete Line Of Occupational Hearing Protection Products And Services To Its Offerings

The Hearing Center of Lake Charles now has a wide selection of hearing protection products for industrial and workplace uses, as well as recreational shooting or musicians.

Lake Charles, LA (PRWEB) - With most forms of hearing loss being irreversible, it simply makes sense to use hearing protection when exposed to loud noises – or risk losing hearing forever. There are many different forms of hearing protection for workplace and recreational use. Employers generally provide hearing protection training and devices for workers in construction, manufacturing, law enforcement, and other noisy industries. The National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) even mandates protection standards. Many musicians and recreational shooters seek out hearing protection on their own. Traditional earplugs will not work for the professional musician as they reduce sound by muffling low-to-mid-range frequencies. As many as 50 percent of all recreational shooters may suffer some degree of hearing loss.

Whatever the reason, The Hearing Center of Lake Charles has a complete selection of hearing protection products. Some of these are 'off-the-shelf,' while others are custom-molded to the shape of the user's ear. The most important criteria in purchasing hearing protection is a good fit. Hearing protection not properly fitted to the wearer’s ears do not effectively prevent damaging noises from penetrating the ear canal. For this reason, The Hearing Center of Lake Charles doesn't just sell ear protection products, but also take the time to fit them for each individual user. They can also administer a hearing tests to establish a baseline from which hearing loss can be measured.
