Protect a loved one’s hearing this Christmas, for half price!

Hearing protection specialists Auritech are encouraging Christmas shoppers to help safeguard their loved ones’ hearing by offering a ‘Buy One, Get One Half Price’ promotion on their universal fit earplugs this December, with two pairs of the patented filtered ear plugs available for £29.92, inclusive of postage and packing.

Auritech produce a range of seven products developed especially for participants who take part in noisy activities, such as motorcycling, shooting and live music, as well as industrial applications and leisure activities such as water sports and travel, in addition to a product to aid peaceful sleep.

All Auritech ear plugs feature a patented ceramic filter, which reduces harmful high pitched frequencies while allowing the wearer to clearly hear the sounds they need and want to hear. Wearing ear protection can help reduce the risk of permanent hearing damage. The Health and Safety Executive insists that hearing protection must be provided at 85dB, which is the limit at which experts agree hearing damage can occur.

Many everyday activities can cause noise-induced hearing loss or tinnitus, a permanent ringing in the ears, without the participants even being aware. For example, a rock concert or wind noise generated by riding a motorcycle at highway speeds can see the participant exposed to in excess of 100dB, while a sporting gun can generate up to 150dB. All activities can cause permanent damage in a matter of minutes, without suitable protection.

“Many people do not know that they risk damaging their hearing when participating in everyday activities,” says Wendy Faulkner, director of Auritech. “Solid foam ear plugs can reduce risk but limit the enjoyment of activities such as shooting, concerts and motorcycling as they muffle and almost completely block out all sounds. By producing a filtered product, we are able to offer the best of both worlds – an ear plug which specifically filters out the dangerous high-frequency noise, but does not deform the sound, increasing the enjoyment and reducing fatigue for the wearer.”

Auritech produces a range of seven products: Biker, Music, Shoot, Work, Travel, Sleep and Water Sports, each with their own precision tuned filter designed specifically for their individual applications. All products allow normal conversation while effectively turning down the volume on other noises. All variants are made from a comfortable silicone-free hypoallergenic thermoplastic and come with a handy container which attaches conveniently to a keyring.

“Hearing damage is a very real issue,” Wendy continues. “Our products make ideal gifts and by offering this promotion we hope that we will raise awareness among participants of the dangers of these noisy activities. Hearing loss is permanent but continued exposure can make the condition worse, so it’s never too late to start wearing hearing protection.”

Auritech products are priced at £19.95 for a single pair, or £29.92 for two pairs. Buyers are able to mix and match products and can order from where they can also find out further information about the range.
