A word from the founder


I started Big Ear as the result of the lack of education about hearing loss. My hearing loss is the result of lifestyle choices and not understanding the consequences of constant transmission shop noise. This resulted in tinnitus, which was worsened by medication prescribed to treat the condition.

So I began Big EAR in 2003 to educate and inform everyone that I met about the risks. Since I have a keen interest in motorcycles, I started teaching motorcycle riders about the effects of wind noise harming their hearing. This has now evolved to parents, band directors, and safety directors on hearing preservation.

With thousands of returning customers and companies and now hundreds of providers on board, there’s one resounding comment, “Thank you, Big Ear! Your custom earplugs are the only way to go!”

“I Love my Big Ears!”
