It’s essential to protect your hearing, especially if you spend a lot of time in noisy environments. Damage to your hearing happens when you are exposed to noises louder than 85 decibels (dB) for a prolonged period.

From loud concerts to noisy traffic, there are many everyday situations that can make a bigger impact on your hearing than you may realise. An underground train can reach 85dB, a pneumatic drill or a nightclub can be as loud as 110dB, a concert can reach ear splitting levels of 130dB, and the crack of a gunshot is 140dB. If you’ve ever experienced ringing in your ears after a night out, then you know the effect that high noise levels can have on your hearing.

You can take action to defend your hearing from excessive noise with our comprehensive range of earplugs that will protect your ears from damage, no matter how noisy your environment.
