Make a Splash this Summer! - While Keeping Your Ears Safe

From our friends at Westone Labs

School is out and summer is here – it's SWIMPLUG SEASON! Westone offers two great solutions for keeping water out of your ears. Perfect for any age, custom swimplugs can be made for those with sensitive ears or a history of middle ear surgery. They are also very important for anyone swimming in cold water to prevent “exostoses,” otherwise known as surfer’s or swimmer’s ear.

The AquaNot is primarily designed to be used while swimming, participating in water activities, or while showering to help prevent moisture from entering the ear canal. The style AQ is made of a floatable silicone that features added finger grips for easy removal.

If you are in the market for a custom product that keeps water out of your ears but also allows you to hear what's going on around you, then the Surfer plug will be right up your alley! The Surfer is made of the same floatable silicone material as the AquaNot, but uses a thin, sealed membrane that spans the sound bore. This barrier keeps water and air out of the ear canal while also providing environmental awareness and preserving the ability to communicate. 

Swimplugs come in a variety of color and cord (or cord-free) options!

Call or email Sound at 415-580-7604 or to set up an appointment for custom swimplugs!
