we recommend watching this video once through before beginning molding so you
can familiarize yourself with the molding process before we walk through
it there are a few warnings to keep in mind
improper fitting or misuse will reduce the effectiveness of your earplugs and
can result in hearing loss or injury the protection provided by your earplugs is
entirely dependent on the quality of the seal created during the molding process
so be sure to follow these instructions closely when using your earplugs do not
enter a loud environment right away start in a quiet low noise environment
and slowly increase the noise exposure to make sure the earplugs are providing
adequate protection. if at any time you feel that your
earplugs are not providing enough protection and they do not feel sealed
and secure in your ear move to a safe low noise environment immediately. Now
let’s dive into the product. Included in your package is a left and right thermo-plastic mold, two back plugs, two medium foam tips and a set of small medium and
large triple flange silicone tips and a
carrying pouch. In addition you will need a metal spoon a timer or foam a ceramic
or glass container and some water if you are molding by yourself you may want to
use a mirror to guide you. Before you begin, make sure there’s no hair covering
your ears if you wear glasses keep them on and finally remove any piercings from
the bowl or conch of your ears as they may become trapped in the molding
material. If you have any piercings in this area that cannot be removed do not
proceed with the molding process. Let’s get started!
The first step is to select the correct silicone tip size for your ear canal the
silicone tips must be used for the molding process so do not use the foam
tips at this time for most people the medium silicone tips
will work best now that you’ve selected the silicone
tip you think works best attach it to the thermoplastic mold test to make sure
that the tip is securely attached to the mold by pulling on the tip and making
sure that it doesn’t easily detach now insert the back plug ensuring that it
sits flush with the mold boil water using a stovetop kettle or microwave in
order to speed up the process we recommend using two ceramic mugs or
small glass containers so that you can heat both molds at once however you can
also do one at a time if you only have one container once the water reaches
boiling carefully pour about three inches of water into two containers
place one mold in each container and let them sit for five minutes if you have
chosen to use one container at a time only place one mold into the container
do not place both molds into the same container or they will get stuck
together after 5 minutes remove the mold using a metal spoon the mold will be
very hot so be careful let it cool for about 30 seconds make sure the mold is
not too hot before inserting it into your ear if you’re not sure test the
mold temperature by quickly touching it to your cheek now if the mold is not too
hot insert the ear plugs into your ear so all material is contained in the bowl
of your ear firmly press the back plug making sure the silicone tip fits snugly
into the ear canal until you achieve that sound isolating seal the silicone
tip will most likely angle toward your eye if any part of the mold feels hard
or is not pliable during the molding process simply place it back into the
hot water for a few minutes and let it fully soften once an isolating seal is
achieved use the pad of your finger to press and smooth the mold into the bowl
or Concha of your ear effective noise isolation is achieved when the tip sits
deep in the ear canal you should not feel any ear pain or irritation while
molding be careful not to make contact with your eardrum if you feel that your
tips are to deepen your ear remove the mold from
your ear and attach a larger size silicone tip now smooth out the dents
once you achieve a good seal and you’re happy with the molding let it cool down
for five minutes while you wait firmly press the back plug every 30
seconds or so now repeat the molding process for the other ear once the
molding process is complete we recommend that you try out different sizes and
combinations of tips to ensure that you’re getting the best sound isolating
seal possible keep in mind that there may be size and shape differences
between your left and right ear whether both ears use the same size tips or two
different sizes be sure to find the combination that protects you the best
if for any reason you would like to remould your ear plugs the simply start
the process again all you need to do is reheat and reshape the included foam
tips will provide a higher isolation than the silicone tips with an NRR
of up to 31 if you choose to use the foam be sure to compress it before
inserting it into your ears for both tips always inspect them for any tears
or cracks before each use depending on care and frequency of use foam tips will
degrade over time we recommend replacing foam tips every four to six months
replacements can be found at decibels calm it’s extremely important to test
your earplugs in a progressively louder environment you can do this by gradually
increasing the noise exposure another great way to test the earplugs is to
talk out loud while wearing your earplugs the sound of your own voice is
should become deeper hollow or muffled in both ears if the change is not in
both ears or there is no change at all you have not achieved the secure seal
keep in mind you will still hear the surrounding frequencies and noises while
wearing your decibels earplugs however the surrounding noise should be
muffled and you should always feel a secure seal to ensure the earplugs will
retain their shape keep them away from temperatures of one
hundred and twenty degrees of Fahrenheit or greater for example leaving them
exposed in your car on a hot day can cause them to soften or melt if you have
