Hearing protection for OW swimming.




If you’re interested in using ear plugs – or personalised moulds – to protect your ears either from bacteria or cold, or both, Earpeace in Galway are offering to come to Crosshaven on the night of Eilis Burn’s talk (March 19th) if we have ten or twelve people who are interested in getting their Catamaran ear mould product.

One of their audiologists would be available on the night to conduct an Otoscopy and take ear canal impressions for those who have ordered.  (Note: You don’t have to be attending Eilis’ talk to come to get the fitting done).  Earpeace are actively promoting protection of hearing through various products for OW swimmers.

The Catamaran personalised ear mould gets rave reviews from users. For background, this article may be of interest to you Swimmers Ear post by Earpeace.

How much does it cost?

The cost per set of the full fitting, case, lead and delivery on their site is €111 and they’re offering it at €99 per person, if we have the group order.

If anyone is interested in ordering, please let me know.  If I don’t have enough numbers by March 5th, I’ll tell them not to come!  I’ve just spent €55 on a doctor and €25 on pills for an ear infection I got in the pool – so I’m in for ear moulds!

Email Damian O’Neill through myrtlevilleswimmers@gmail.com if you want to purchase and get a fitting.
