The Big Ear Story – As someone who suffered from noise induced hearing loss and tinnitus, the founder of Big Ear, Glenn Hood, was determined to help others avoid the mistakes he had made by creating a way to make custom ear plugs while you wait. Concerts, riding a motorcycle, shooting, and a noisy work environment had each done permanent damage over time.
Working with industry professionals, it became clear that education and prevention was they key to helping others avoid hearing damage. Big Ear, Inc. was formed with the mission of wiping out noise induced hearing loss in our lifetime.
Custom Ear Plugs – How We Make Them While You Wait
Big Ear was one of the first to research, develop and utilize high grade medical silicone to make custom fit ear plugs. Custom fit became the focus of Big Ear’s product line due to the poor protection offered by generic products on the market. To this day, the unfortunate truth is that foam and other generic earplugs offer an uncomfortably poor fit and a lot less protection than something custom made for each individual ear.
Although offering products for a myriad of different industries and hobbies, the primary focus of Big Ear today is the industrial worker and musicians. Working with employers and educational institutions, in order to implement hearing conservation programs, allows Big Ear to maximize its efforts in protection.
Glen Hood, asked Welsch Hearing Aid Company, to be a preferred provider for Big Ear products. We are the first Hearing Instrument Provider Big Ear has partnered with.
