Molded ear protection

Post by Trouter3 » Sat Oct 17, 2015 11:43 am

Do any of you fine gents know of a place I could have a set made, there was a fella who made them at one of the gun
Shows in WPB and I got distracted and didn't have them made at that time ..I know they sell kits on the market, but I'd rather have someone
Who knows what they are doing make a set ..any help would be appreciated ...thanks

be aware they have a life span of about 4 years, maybe less if you leave them in your car
In the days of the old west a 6 shooter was as common as cell phones are today and just annoying if they go off in a theater.

I used to make them at the shop never had a pair last more that 10 years ....they all shrink over time....I give them 5 years at best under extremely careful use....most of the time the damn string breaks free.....lol

Don't lube those with saliva or you can get serious ear infection

You understand that they are no more effective than and possibly less so than foam plugs because they depend on the skill of the fitter and don't supply
consistent outward radial pressure?

I just had a set made at Advanced Quality Hearing located in the Festival Flea Market in Pompano. Cost $50.00 and took exactly 1 hour, and I am very satisfied. 954-975-5756

You can walk in but be prepared to wait a while when the plugs are finished

there is a curing process that takes a while maybe an hour if I recall correctly/

They'll mention it as well but if you gain or lose a lot of weight you will have to get new ones. Make a note of how much you weigh when you get them done. I think it just makes sense that the ear canal changes in - as you gain or lose weight.

Just buy yourself a set of ESP's and never look back! (Especially at your bank statement! [smilie=012.gif] )
Well then get your s';t together.
Get it all together. And put it in a backpack. All your s';t. So it’s together. And if you gotta take it somewhere, take it somewhere, you know, take it to the s';t store and sell it, or put it in a s';t museum, I don’t care what you do, you just gotta get it together.
Get your s';t together.
