Hearing Protection

Protecting your hearing is essential, especially in environments with excessive noise. At Kings Opticians, in collaboration with The Hearing Care Partnership, we offer specialized hearing protection solutions tailored to your needs, from basic ear plugs to custom-moulded products for various activities.

Understanding Noise-Induced Hearing Loss (NIHL)

NIHL results from prolonged exposure to high noise levels or sudden loud noises, like explosions. The tiny hair cells in our ears, responsible for transmitting sound signals to the brain, can get damaged by these sound waves. Once damaged, these cells don’t regenerate, leading to permanent hearing loss. However, with the right hearing protection, this can be prevented.

Did You Know?

  • A jet engine’s noise is around 150 dBSPL, while a normal conversation ranges between 40-60 dBSPL.
  • Any noise over 85 dBSPL can cause permanent hearing damage.
  • Even the traffic on a bustling road, which can reach up to 90 dBSPL, can impact your hearing over time.
