The purpose of musicians earplugs is to preserve the fidelity of the musical environment while providing adequate hearing protection. The UWSHC audiologists take impressions, select, and fit custom musicians earplugs for musicians. Individuals who spend time in loud places with music also benefit from musicians earplugs, such as regular concert-goers or employees of loud bars and restaurants.
