SonoLab. Altogether a better approach

Proper protection against noise is now essential in the workplace

SonoLab Instant Fit Custom Moulded Earplugs provide you with the best, most comfortable and cost-effective hearing protection available anywhere in the world.

Noise-induced hearing loss has become the number one industrial injury claim in the UK, and EU laws are tightening to protect employees. As well as hearing loss itself, loud noise can result in occupational accidents because it masks warning signs, hinders communication and diverts attention.

Before SonoLab introduced its innovative new solution, there were three types of noise protection, none of which is ideal:

  • Earphones are effective but uncomfortable to wear for long periods. There is a risk that employees will fail to wear them even when they have been supplied.
  • Disposable plugs vary in effectiveness, depending upon the thoroughness with which the user inserts them. Even when very carefully placed in the ears, disposables are not as effective as custom-moulded plugs. They are also wasteful.
  • Custom moulded plugs give the best, most comfortable protection, but traditional supply is expensive, labour-intensive and can take up to three weeks to manufacture.

SonoLab Instant Fit Custom Moulded Earplugs give the same level of protection as traditional moulded plugs, and can be made and fitted in under 10 minutes. They are safe and very comfortable, so workers love wearing them. Some even take them home to combat a snoring partner!

SonoLab Instant Fit Custom Moulded Earplugs are designed to interface seamlessly with any communications device, and are available with different levels of noise filtering. We also have a metal-detectable option for the food industry, which is coloured blue for easy identification.

SonoLab is leading the world into the next generation of hearing protection


Our driving force is a passion to eradicate hearing loss.

So, when we looked at what the world offers industry to protect employees from the pain of losing their hearing, we realised there was inadequate provision in the market.

There was an urgent need for high performing custom-fitted hearing protection, which is available quickly, is cost-effective, and is easy to access.

There was also a need for companies to be able to test employees’ hearing to ensure that the noise attenuation they offer, is doing the job properly.


We collaborated with a team of leading audiologists to create SonoLab Instant Fit Custom Moulded Earplugs, and developed SonoLab Noise Attenuation Software with our own R&D team.

SonoLab earplugs are manufactured using high quality materials and processes. We are comfortably able to issue a two-year warranty with each pair enabling it to be a cost-effective way of solving the problem of industrial noise-induced hearing loss throughout the world.

SonoLab Noise Attenuation Software has been developed by our ingenious R&D team. It calculates an individual’s Personal Attenuation Rating (PAR) and creates an industry accredited certificate in PDF format that can be stored on the user’s profile in the workplace.


General Manager, Kevin Carvell says, “We are totally committed to getting hearing protection to users through a network of carefully-selected distributors, supporting them to ensure everyone gets the chance to have SonoLab Instant Fit Custom Moulded Earplugs, and every company is able to access the software. We are working hard to make employers and health & safety managers aware of SonoLab earplugs as the most cost-effective way of giving employees the very best chance of avoiding the immense suffering that comes from noise-induced hearing loss.”
