Getting custom hearing protection made and fitted will be a new experience for some of our customers. Our experience and knowledge will make the process comfortable and hassle free.

The quick and easy process involves two simple stages:


Choosing your plugs

With such a wide selection of plugs to choose from, finding the one that fits your needs can be daunting. We can help! We have a product for all situations and we can guide you in the right direction. All you will need to do is pick your colour.


Having your impressions taken

All of our plugs are custom-made to fit your ears, ensuring you have the best possible hearing protection. To achieve this perfect fit, we need to take precise impressions of your ears.

How we take the impressions…

Taking your impressions usually takes around 10 minutes. We start by checking your ears to make sure they are clear and it is safe to proceed. Next, we gently place a foam block in your ear canal, ensuring that it sits at the correct depth. This ensures your ears are safe and ready for the impressions to be taken.

We then pump hand-mixed, medical grade impression material into your ear, leaving it to set for around 5 minutes. Next, we’ll carefully remove the impressions from your ears and pass them on to our specialist moulding laboratory, who will make your moulded ear plugs. We will then check your ears again to make sure your ears are clear.

We offer a flexible appointment service that works around you – simply get in touch to let us know when you are available, and we’ll do our best to accommodate your needs. We offer evening and weekend appointments.

To arrange an appointment, simply call us on 0800 690 6900 during office hours or drop us an email at info@varioplugs.co.uk

Not local? No problem!

We supply hearing protection across the country. If you don’t live locally to us, that’s no problem – you can either contact us to see when we will be at an event in your area or you can arrange to have your impressions taken by an audiologist or an alternative dispenser local to you for an additional cost – usually in the region of £30. Just give us a call on 0800 690 6900 during office hours or drop us an email at info@varioplugs.co.uk and we’ll help you to find your nearest dispenser.

Once your hearing protection is ready, we’ll post them out to you by Royal Mail Recorded Delivery or if you would prefer, you can pop in and collect them.

If you have any questions, or would like to discuss the process further, please do not hesitate to contact us during office hours on 0800 690 6900 or email info@varioplugs.co.uk – our dedicated team are always happy to help.
