It is widely known that noise can damage the ears. Accordingly, in addition to regulations that are in place to protect people from excessive exposure to noise, there are also some things that you can do yourself for your ears. This includes earplugs, of course, which are one of the best ways to protect yourself from noise in your private life. They are effective, easy to use and inexpensive. Then there are earmuffs, which are typically worn in loud workplaces. And there are also special, individual inserts for the ear (known as ear moulds), which are somewhat more expensive, however.
