Hearing Technology for Musicians

Rise above the noise. Our professional in-ear musician monitors and our personal listening earphones are designed with one goal in mind: to help you hear more accurately with less interference. Try them once and you’ll hear what we mean.

At Fox Valley Hearing Center, we recommend Starkey and Westone for personal listening devices, including musician monitors. These manufacturers have been in the forefront of in-ear monitoring technology for decades, combining both hearing and music specialists on their development teams. The results combine cutting-edge technology, sophisticated comfort, and musical savvy.

Custom-Fit Monitors

Our custom-molded in-ear monitors are fit into medical-grade silicone earmolds that are comfortable for extended periods of wear and that form a superior acoustic seal to give you just the sound you need. Precision drivers, integrated crossovers, and discreet cable connections make these professional-quality audio monitors second to none in terms of sonic quality, all in a package that is unobtrusive and will never stand between you and a great performance.

Are Custom Earbuds Better Than Headphones?

Media and music are more accessible than ever, making earbuds and headphones essential. With the rise in technology, it’s no surprise that there’s a rise in hearing loss. According to the National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders (NIDCD), 13 percent of Americans ages 12 years or older have hearing loss in both ears.

Benefits of Custom Earbuds

Listen and Learn: Think about when you turn up your headphones. It’s probably during your favorite song, or to block out background noise. This common theme is what really hurts your hearing. With custom earbuds, you don’t have to worry about that annoying background noise; their secure, custom fit allows you to hear what you want to and not what you don’t. Noise-canceling headphones are also a good option.

Plus, you can pick the colors of your technology, which adds to their appeal!

Enhance Personal Listening in Challenging Situations

There are other ways to reduce the effects of loud music on your hearing.

  • Devices offer solutions in many situations during which hearing is difficult or tiring, such as when you need to hear certain sounds or need to avoid other sounds. This includes making music, motorcycling, sleeping, hunting, working in noisy environments, need or interest in highest fidelity, or high wind and bad weather.
  • You’ll enjoy your personal electronic devices more, including your MP3 player, CD player, hand-held games, or laptop computer with personal listening earphones from Westone or Starkey. Experience comfort and sound quality that gives your personal listening experience a whole new dimension.
  • Custom earpieces are molded to give you all-day comfort and maximum exclusion of extraneous noises. Fidelity ranges from 10Hz to 18kHz, varying somewhat according to the model. Up-to-the-minute technology further refines the signature Westone sound that professional musicians have learned to depend on.
  • You can experience guaranteed fit and quality. Custom ear molds are 100% guaranteed for fit and comfort. Devices include a one-year warranty for manufacturer defects.
