Custom Earplugs and Earmolds
Some models of behind-the-ear hearing aids require custom earmolds. As the name implies, custom earmolds are made custom to fit the unique contour of your ear. Earmolds come in a wide variety of sizes, colors and types. Some earmolds are solid, and some are soft or spongy. The type of earmold your hearing professional recommends will depend on your individual needs.
In additional to hearing devices, custom earplugs are available for a number of hobbies and activities, such as swimming and sleeping. Earmolds are also popular for fitting over certain earbud headphones, under pilot boom-mic headsets, and other specialty uses.

Musicians have unique needs when it comes to hearing protection. They need to protect their hearing, but they also need to be able to hear their own music clearly, as well as hear other musicians' music and voices while performing.
Conventional store-bought earplugs are great at providing hearing protection. However, they don’t attenuate evenly—musicians typically want a more even frequency response from their earplugs. Foam or off the shelf earplugs usually attenuate the highs more than the lows and this doesn’t sound good to the musician.
Most musicians need specialized protection. This means protection across all frequencies with more emphasis on the low-to-mid frequencies. Musician plugs generally attenuate evenly across frequencies but this may vary by type of instrument they play and their location to other musicians.
