Ear Health by White Cat

by The Rock Academy on September 12, 2019

We live in a noisy world.

1 in 4 people today suffer from hearing impairment. While some of this cannot be prevented due to genetic or medical reasons, noise induced hearing loss is 100% preventable.

We hope that White Cat will be a useful, ever-growing resource that will help make environments safer so that we can enjoy the beautiful sounds around us longer.

We didn’t start off selling hearing protection – Heck, we didn’t want to. But we couldn’t find a good enough product in all of New Zealand to recommend to people. So we scoured the globe for the best hearing protection available, and White Cat Earplugs was born.

Join us in championing this cause, learn more about protecting our hearing, or grab the best quality high-fidelity acoustic filtered hearing protection on the market.

Have a white cat and want to know what the chances are that they’re deaf? Here are some stats.
