Hearing Services for Musicians
Cadence Hearing offers custom earplugs and hearing aids designed for musicians.
For musicians, hearing well is essential for their art. Hearing well is correctly associated with effective communication skills and quality of life.
Dr. Wayne has worked with bands such as Fleetwood Mac and Red Hot Chili Peppers.
Loud music, especially concerts, can be detrimental to your hearing. Take a look at this chart to see how exposure to everyday noises for prolonged periods effect your hearing.
A musician suffering from minor hearing loss will effect perceptions of tone and pitch required for an ideal performance. In extreme cases, severe hearing loss could mean the end of a career.
Listening to loud noises causes the cilia to become tired and worn. If they are constantly exposed to loud noises, the cilia will eventually fail to recover, resulting in a loss of hearing.
Musician’s earplugs are designed to replicate the natural response of sound. As a result, the sounds that you hear are the same quality as the original – only quieter. The result is the ability to hear speech and music clearly, as the ear reads the full blended frequencies. You can feel the bass, and distinguish each tone. But because direct pressure to the ears are reduced, the level of damage is reduced.
We offer several types of filters for the musician plugs (ER 9, 15, 20 and 25). The higher the number the more attenuation of the music.
Dr. Wayne can review these filters with you. We also take impressions for in ear monitors for various companies including Future Sonics.
