Human ears are one of the delicate parts of the body. To project this part he can use earplug, it is a device which can be inserted into the ear canal of the user to protect from disturbing and loud noises or the intrusion of water, dust or other harmful things. According to research there are mainly four types of earplugs which can be used for protecting the ears. These types of earplugs are Foam, Silicone, Flanged and Custom molded earplugs.
Best Types of Earplugs
Foam earplugs are mainly made of foam and this foam have the capability to compress and put into the ear canal for protection and then expand according to the shape of the ear canal to fit itself and plug it. This type of earplugs is mainly used for noise reduction, but the quality and amount of reducing noise depends on the foam type used and the type of molding done to make these earplugs.
Silicone earplugs are moulded in such a way that it fits over the external portions of the ear canal to protect the users ear. Unlike Foam earplugs, it’s rather than placing inside the ear canal it’s placed over it. Silicone earplug can mostly use while swimming, water sports, bathing and other situations keep water out of ears. For ear protection this earplug is ideal as its quality of flexibility and mouldablility depends on the type of material used to keep out noise and other environment influences such as wind and water.
Flanged earplug reduces sound noise, according to the material’s decibel rating. Flanged earplugs are more expensive than foam earplugs even though flanged earplugs have the maximum decibel rating. However, there are some other considerations. Like some of flanged earplugs contain cord connecting to keep connections between the earplugs and keep those together when they are removed from the user’s ears. Some other flanged earplugs are used for listening music. Some flanged earplugs are used for swimming or other tasks related to water to prevent water entering into ears. There are some other flange earplugs which are used while flying to prevent ear damage in pressure.
Custom Molded Ear Plugs
Custom moulded earplugs are made and designed in such a way that it fits all ear canal shapes from a mould of the users’ ears.Custom Molded earplugs are made fully custom which is made by a protection tailor to fit the user’s ears perfectly. Biologically, all humans ears are just as individual and distinct as humans figure-prints, which means no two ear canals are in exact manner in all respects of shape and/or size, being totally only one of its kind. As every user’s ear canal is unique it becomes difficult and challenging to get the perfect fitting ear plugs for individual ears, either a user need to protect from unwanted noises or water, either one is finding for protecting top-notch of shooters or may be just perfect size and shape set of earplugs to wear while sleeping.
