What are Ear Plugs?

Butterfly Audiology make custom made earplugs for people of all ages, from young children through to adults. They are great to:

Protect your ears from loud noise

Use when sleeping

Use when swimming and for people with grommets

For musicians

For use with a variety of electronic devices including mobile phones, Bluetooth intercoms, two-way radio’s and more

For people who can’t get ‘off the shelf’ earplugs to fit comfortably/stay in place


We use the highest grade premium medical silicone material which is available in many colours. Our earplugs comply with the Australian Hearing Standards AS/NZS1270-2002 as a Class 5 protector with an SLC 80 rating of 28.

The average lifespan of our earplugs is 2-5years (may be less for young children due to them growing) and they are washable and very hygienic.

If you need some earplugs, please arrange an appointment with us. We will take an impression of your ear (which does not hurt) and your earplugs will be cured and available for collection.

Earplugs are devices that are inserted into the ear canal to reduce the amount of noise that enters the ear. They can be made from a variety of materials, including foam, silicone, and wax.

Earplugs can be beneficial for anyone who is exposed to loud noise, such as:

  • Workers in noisy environments, such as construction sites or factories
  • Musicians
  • People who shoot guns
  • People who enjoy activities that involve loud noise, such as concerts or sporting events
  • People who have hearing loss and need additional protection from noise

The benefits of earplugs include:

  • They can help to prevent hearing loss.
  • They can reduce the risk of noise-induced tinnitus (ringing in the ears).
  • They can help to improve sleep quality.
  • They can help to protect the ear from dirt, wax, and water.

There are many different types of earplugs available, including:

  • Foam earplugs: These are the most common type of earplugs. They are made from soft, squishy foam that expands when inserted into the ear canal.
  • Silicone earplugs: These earplugs are made from a flexible silicone material. They are more durable than foam earplugs and can be reused.
  • Wax earplugs: These earplugs are made from a soft, pliable wax. They are custom-molded to the individual's ear canal and provide a snug fit.

The best way to choose the right earplugs for you is to talk to an audiologist. They can help you to assess your needs and recommend the right type of earplugs for you.

Earplugs should be cleaned regularly with mild soap and water. They should also be stored in a clean, dry place.

If you are exposed to loud noise on a regular basis, you should consider using earplugs. However, it is important to choose the right type of earplugs for you and to care for them properly.
