Custom Swim Plugs

Love the water but not keen on ear infections? 

Do you need earplugs for your children who swim regularly and are prone to ear infections? Have your children recently had grommets inserted and are enrolled for swimming classes?

Whether you're a keen swimmer or an avid surfer, ear infections or 'surfer's ear' are no fun and it's a condition that affects those who are into watersports. Custom-moulded swim plugs can help you enjoy the water without having to pay the price.

Acoustix Hearing provides swimming earplugs that are custom-molded to your ears, so that they will stay in place and not fall out - an advantage over a generic "one size fits all" product, bluetack or putty.

Custom swim plugs offer the following benefits:

  • They keep water out of your ears and help with preventing ear infections
  • They provide a perfect and comfortable fit for your ears only
  • Ideal for children with ruptured ear drums and grommets
  • Ideal for all swimmers and surfers to prevent exostoses (bone growth in ear canal)

To provide you with the best earplugs, we require a set of ear impressions of your ears, which only takes a few minutes and forms part of your first appointment with us. These earplugs generally come in pairs, a carry pouch and instructions.

 A monaural (for one ear only) custom swim plug is also possible.

When it comes to earplugs for children, they will need replacing from time to time due to growth related changes to their ear canals. We have found that a pair of earplugs for swimming fitted to children provides a tight seal for up to 18 months before they require replacing, due to water leaking in to their ear canals.

Please note that custom swim plugs require a visit to us for taking a set of ear impressions for the purpose of manufacturing.
