HearSay provides a number of speciality ear pieces. Some designs require a customized earmold impression for styles that will only fit your unique ear, and other styles which are over-the-counter styles which are standard sizes to fit any ear. While over-the counter styles are cost effective, they are not a custom fit and can fall out of the ears more easily than the custom products. The fit of over-the-counter styles are also not as secure or comfortable given that they come in a standard size (adult and child size) which may or may not be the best fit depending on the shape of your ear.
There are many styles and uses for ear pieces:
Provide an ear piece that helps soften the sharp edges of sound. Sharp/loud/sudden loud sounds are known to create a fight-or-flight response and escalate anxiety
Sound dampening filters which dampen noise, but allow the primary speaker’s voice to be heard. A good choice for those with Auditory Processing Disorders (APD), or those who are sensitive to background noise and struggle to have conversations in noise, but have normal hearing.

with varying filters to dampen sound
