Using medically graded silicone to make a perfect custom fit ear plugs.
Ear impressions are essentially model imprints of your ear. These moulds are required to customise all custom ear plugs and Custom In Ears Monitors to specific dimensions of your ears.
Soft medically graded silicone is slowly injected into the outer ear and left to cure for a few minutes. Once the impression material has cured, it is delicately taken out to reveal the shape of the ear. This process takes approximately 10 minutes.
Ears are as unique as fingerprints, no two ears are the same! It’s this unique feature that sets our products apart from the rest and is why we feel all in-ear products are best custom made. Ear impressions are the blueprint used by custom ear plugs manufacturers and are essentially what enable them to make their products a perfect fit to your ears and the ultimate in sound isolation. To get the best performance and sound from your new custom hearing protections and in-ear monitors, it is essential that we get a high quality impression of your ears. This requires a high quality silicone mould of your ears taken past the second bend.
