About Big Ear

About Big Ear -The Big Ear Story

Big Ear specializes in on-site custom hearing protection services.

What started as an idea from one person and a small group of individuals in 2003 grew into a worldwide family of Big Ear providers. Through the years, the Big Ear family expanded beyond North America into the United Kingdom and Australia.

Aside from our Providers, our success depends on our Perfect Fit Technology™ that allows us to secure a perfect impression of our customer’s ears every time. Thus, our product is not a generic solution, and we are proud of it. The patented technology is cost-effective and installs within seconds with a perfect fit every time. It also allows precision and comfort so that earplugs can be worn throughout the day or all night. Big Ear made on-site earplugs have a 36-month warranty.* 

The applications are endless when it comes to hearing protection. Industrial and construction workers, motorcyclists, musicians, and hunters all benefit from our custom hearing protection earplugs. Likewise, dentists, restaurant staff, and athletes rave about them. Even a better night’s sleep is possible with our products. Whether you need a full-stop or a filtered earplug, or even a custom communication tactical earplug, we can make it happen. 

Big Ear is a perfect home-based business or as a product extension to your current business. Our Providers work with both companies and individual sellers. In an effort to save the hearing of the future generation, we are always looking for amazing people to join our family. We travel to events, visit homes, or set up shops in offices. We are exceptionally flexible when meeting with customers. Notably, we’ve even been known for meeting up in highways just to make sure our high-quality earplugs fit perfectly.

About Big Ear – Why Big Ear

Big Ear is about every individual customer – our Big Ear family. We’re a dedicated group of people who understand our customer’s exact needs. Usually, hearing damage manifests gradually such that you may find yourself having a hearing issue now when you were doing just fine yesterday. It is for this reason that early hearing protection awareness is essential.

Our Providers listen and create the best earplug solution tailored to your exact needs, working perfectly and reliably every time. Many claim to resolve a problem with a one-size-fits-all product, but it simply doesn’t work. If you’re in a jam and need quick protection, you may grab whatever you can to prevent further hearing damage. However, that’s not a solution but more of a Band-Aid, and, like most Band-Aids, they start peeling off after a while. Certainly, the answer is to identify what you enjoy most in life and use the correct techniques to remain safe and healthy while enjoying them.

Even a simple date at the movies can be hazardous to your hearing. When we watched the movie Dunkirk at an IMAX theater, we recorded sound levels averaging 104 dB, with spikes of up to 112 dB. We might as well have been standing on a runway! If you have a sensitivity to sound, this creates even more problems. However, it doesn’t have to be this way. We can provide a solution that can allow you to hear as much or as little as you wish. Each person is different, so the answer must also vary. All our products have been scientifically designed and tested for your active lifestyle. We’ve searched the world to find the absolute best partners in custom hearing protection. Our partnerships enable us to offer the most elite products; for this reason, we use 8 Labs and only offer their premium products.

We provide custom-molded earplugs and earpieces designed to fit you. Our reusable earplugs are designed to fit your ears, providing superior ear protection and hearing loss prevention. The customized earpieces can work with your existing technology to provide you with the best sound quality while reducing background noise.

Big Ear, Inc. is the leader in hearing health technologies.

Words from the

About Big Ear and The War on Noise

I started Big Ear as a result of a lack of education about hearing loss. My hearing loss is the product of poor lifestyle choices and not understanding the consequences of constant transmission shop noise. This resulted in tinnitus, which was worsened by the medication prescribed to treat the condition.

Big Ear was founded in 2003 to educate and inform individuals that I faced the consequences of occupational exposure.

Since I have a keen interest in motorcycles, I started teaching motorcycle riders about the effects of wind noise harming their hearing. This has now led to educating parents, band directors, and safety directors on hearing preservation.

With thousands of returning customers and companies and now hundreds of providers on board, there’s one resounding comment, and that is, “Thank you, Big Ear! Your custom earplugs are the only way to go!”

“I Love My Big Ears!”
