Many are unaware of the potentially severe effects of exposure to loud noise/music, a.k.a. noxious noise, the leading cause of noise induced hearing loss. Having grown up within the hearing healthcare space, Blaise had an acute awareness of the many hazards that induce hearing loss and was inspired to take action .
During graduate studies for Communication Sciences and Disorders, our founder envisioned the concept of fader plugs - a mechanically controlled hearing protective device. This idea was further conceptualized by our Father-Son team - CEO; Blaise Delfino and Dr. Gregory Delfino and is currently undergoing research by Dr. Grant Searchfield [the tinnitus guru] at the University of Auckland in New Zealand.
Today, The Fader Plug, is the world’s first custom adjustable mechanical earplug with a patented technology.and is entirely manufactured in the United States. Our partners, ProtoCAM Additive Manufacturing and the global leader in hearing healthcare, Starkey Hearing Technologies, align in our mission to help people preserve their hearing.
