Why do I need Auritech Hearing Protectors?

Regular water contact inside the ear can cause bacterial build-up, irritation and damage. Protecting the middle ear and ear drum from water contact with hearing protectors is therefore recommended.

What makes Auritech earplugs different?

Developed over 20 years by leading audiology experts, Auritech earplugs for swimming and watersports are superior to traditional foam, wax or silicone earplugs. Comfortable and suitable for all ages, water is prevented from entering the ear while swimming, snorkelling, surfing etc.

Precision-tuned, patented ceramic sound filters also filter out annoying or loud background noise, yet allow you to listen clearly to surrounding conversation without a muffled effect.

Auritech have created the first and only Universal-Fit Hearing Protectors, that are able to position a precision sound filter deeply into the hearing channel of the ear. This ensures that the maximum level of sound waves reaching your eardrum is first filtered.

Auritech revolutionary design ensures optimum attenuation, helping prevent damaging sound waves from passing around the outside of the filter. Precision filtration does not muffle or block your ears, so you will not experience an ‘occlusion’ effect common with other hearing protectors.

The patented ceramic filter is frequency-selective, so allows you to hear normal conversation and relevant background sounds - so you can carry on as normal, hardly noticing you are wearing hearing protectors.
