Michigan Avenue Hearing Health can help prevent noise-induced hearing loss with a super selection of state-of-the-art hearing and ear protection devices
Loud noises can injure your ears and lead to temporary or permanent hearing loss. Protect your ears from high-decibel damage by scheduling a consultation at our downtown office on Michigan Avenue and speak with one of our qualified hearing specialists.
I’m Young. Why Should I Worry About Hearing Loss?
No matter what age you are, you can potentially suffer hearing loss. If you’ve ever been to high-decibel events, like rock concerts or sporting events, you know that sometimes your ears can ring or hurt when the sound gets too intense. Even if you’re not a music lover or sports fan, there are plenty of other places where your hearing can be imperiled, such as construction or industrial sites. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), prolonged exposure to loud noises can damage the hair cells in the inner ear and may also damage the auditory nerve, causing permanent hearing loss.
How Can I Protect My Hearing from Further Abuse?
A great first step would be to schedule an appointment at the downtown office of Michigan Avenue Hearing Health with one of our qualified hearing specialists. We recommend that every adult schedule a hearing evaluation if they are experiencing any difficulties with their hearing. The results of that test can help our experienced staff recommend the best noise cancelling hearing protection option for each individual.
Do These Ear Protection Options Really Work?
Yes. New state-of-the-art hearing protection is used by professional musicians and construction crews alike. These hearing protection devices reduce high-decibel levels, acting as a barrier to excessive noise exposure, and helping to prevent damage to your inner ear. High fidelity ear plugs, according to Etymotic Research, will lower noise without muffling sound. Instead music is heard clearly only at a safer volume. We carry many high-fidelity ear protection models from industry leader Etymotic Research and other manufacturers as well.
