Loud noise is harmful to your ears and can cause permanent hearing damage. Any regular and prolonged time to noise over70dB (decibels) can cause damage to your ears. Therefore, sleep and sound here for the best ear muffs. The louder the noise, the shorter the time it takes for hearing loss to occur.
Unlike Ugg earmuffs or winter earmuffs from Kmart, which keep your ears warm in the cold, noise-canceling earmuffs can be worn all year round and have a much more important role in protecting your hearing. Hearing protection earmuffs are the quickest and simplest way to protect your ears from harmful sounds wherever you may be.
The Safe Work Australia Government website states that “Work-related noise-induced hearing loss is a preventable but irreversible condition that affects many Australian workers. Between 28–32% of the Australian workforce is likely to work in an environment exposed to loud noise at work. We provide the best ear muffs for you so you can work with them more comfortably.
These days, the trouble is that many people are exposed to loud noise at work and home and during the weekends in everyday life. What’s more, people are not protecting their ears, which is increasing the number of people suffering from hearing loss.

Sleep and Sound stock a range of quality earmuffs for kids, women, men, and even specially designed earmuffs for the baby.
How often do you mow your lawns, use a leaf blower or hairdryer? Do you break out the drill, chainsaw, or other power tools on the weekend for a bit of DIY around the home? Teens seem are exposed to loud music everywhere they go, from personal headphones, in their cars, to nightclubs and concerts. Choosing not to protect your ears in loud environments will put your hearing at risk.
People exposed to any extended periods of noise above 85 decibels must wear hearing protection earmuffs or earplugs.
How Loud is Too Loud
Any noise above 120dB in one short blast within close range can cause you immediate, irreversible hearing loss.Once the cells in your ears have been damaged, there is no way that they can be repaired. To put things in perspective, if a person has even mild to moderate hearing loss, they can struggle to hear sounds under 70 decibels clearly. Knowing this, why would anyone NOT want to protect their ears and preserve their hearing at any chance they could?

Earmuffs for Sleeping
Some people choose to wear noise-canceling earmuffs to block noise and help them sleep. In this instance, we always recommend earplugs for sleeping. Earplugs give you the freedom to move around comfortably in your bed at night and allow you to sleep on your side happily. Pillow Speakers are a great way to listen to soothing music comfortably to help you sleep.
Earmuffs for Musicians
On the stage or in the studio, nothing gives you a kick like making music. Preferably at a high volume, right? Do you always wear good hearing protection? Considering that your hearing is probably your most important sense as a musician, it’s better to protect it well.
