Ear Protection

Exposure to loud noises causes irreversible damage to the delicate hairs that line the cochlea, resulting in permanent hearing loss. Many cases of noise- induced hearing loss related to occupation or recreational activities could be avoided if the correct noise protection is worn.


Many people recovering from ear infections or ear surgery, as well as perforated ear drums and grommits, must keep their ear canals dry to prevent more severe problems from developing. While no swim mould can create an absolutely watertight seal in the ear canal, properly fit swim moulds will keep out most of the moisture that can aggravate outer ear conditions. Perfect for bathing, showering or swimming, our custom made earmolds conveniently float and are currently available in transparent aswell as a range of bold Neon colours.


Under the recent General Applications Act of 2007, Irish companies must comply with regulations in place to make sure that employees are protected from harmful levels of noise emissions. The purpose of these Regulations is to transpose Directive 2003/10/EC of the European Parliament on the minimum health and safety requirements regarding the exposure of employees to the risks arising from physical agents (noise). This legislation makes the protection of workers from noise exposure mandatory. O’Grady’s Hearing Care provides Industrial screening, and a comprehensive range of bespoke custom hearing protection solutions for those who are employed in environments where there is prolonged exposure to noise. We recommend the ACS Pro Series Hearing Protection system which has several levels of attenuation available depending on the noise level in environment they will be worn in. Various Airport workers, people employed in our Defence Forces and Aircorps, Motorcyclists and also Musicians are among our happy customers who have benefitted from our custom hearing protection moulds. The PRO-27 is a breakthrough in high-noise filtering giving you an almost flat reduction of around 23dB through the low and mid range frequencies so that you maintain situation awareness and your ability to communicate but can still be comfortable in very loud environments. In the higher frequencies the PRO-27 gives you a stark jump in protection offering up to 35dB where you need it most so you can carry on working or enjoying your passion in safety. With an average attenuation of 27dB the PRO-27 can increase your safe exposure time by up to 9 times. If you work in an environment where not only do you need hearing protection , you would like to listen to radio chatter or perhaps music, then the ” ACS Pro 27 Communicator ” system is worth considering. The Pro 27 Communicator provides the best of both worlds, quality sustainable hearing protection with high fidelity sound reproduction with the single driver monitor speaker.


Whether you perform professionally on stage or listen in the comfort of your own home we make it our mission to ensure that listeners hear absolute fidelity of the sound and don’t have to crank it up to damaging volumes. The silicone warms up to body temperature so after a while of use it begins to feel like part of your ear and the rich tones feel like they are coming from the air. ACS earpieces are flush and discreet in the ear! It’s the finishing touches that make every one of these hand-made earpieces completely unique from a choice of cable colours to a selection of bespoke silicone finishes. Every earpiece can be laser etched with lettering of your choice and is supplied in a customised rugged case to ensure they are protected wherever you might travel. O’Grady’s Hearing Care carries the full range of ACS Products.


Our Siemens protection range


Every sound that enters your ears has to pass through SecureEar. This makes sure that you sense each sound in the safest manner possible. Loud noises, such as the blast of a rifle, can be reduced by up to 35 dB.

Acoustic Telescope

SecureEar also incorporates hearing technology that picks up and slightly amplifies soft sounds important for hunting (including leaves rustling or a normal conversation). It acts like an acoustic telescope, which you can adjust to suit the occasion. If your hearing is good, it will be even better with SecureEar.

Uncompromised Hearing

As a world leader in the field of audiology, Siemens can guarantee top sound quality. The instrument settings are pre-defined for optimum impulse noise protection as well as loud noise suppression – without any compromise to hearing and understanding. A four-channel chip with digital processing allows you to hear what you want, even better than normally.
