Motorcycles and Hearing

Oh, the wonderful sounds of nice weather. The birds are singing and the bikes are out.
If you are a motorcyclist you need to protect your hearing so you can keep enjoying the sounds of summer.

Prolonged noise can damage your hearing, with permanent hearing loss occurring in as little as 15 minutes.
Even short bursts of sound over 90 decibels can have an impact, motorcycle noise is at the 95dB level.

Permanent hearing damage can not be reversed!

Riding your motorcycle can be more enjoyable using Musicians Ear plugs.

Are you bothered by wind noise, or ear pain due to wind, or
traffic noise while riding your motorcycle? There are options available to
combat these irritations and protect your hearing at the same time.

One option is ear/hearing protection you can purchase in
some retail stores. These can reduce wind and traffic noise; however, they also
reduce the high frequency sounds more than the low frequency sounds. This
reduces your ability to localize sounds around you and if you have a stereo
system your music will sound muffled.

Why not consider custom made Musician’s Plugs?

These fit great, look great and reduce wind and traffic noise without reducing
the fidelity of your music, and protect your hearing as well!

So many options to make your ride more enjoyable and safe.

Call Lincoln Hearing Clinic for more details.
