E.A.R., Inc. was founded in 1971 by Garry G. Gordon, M.S. (Audiologist) and his advisers to support the needs of major corporations attempting to comply with state and federal regulations regarding noise. E.A.R.’s worked with a variety of business and industries including:
- Beech Aircraft
- Colorado Interstate Gas

A key marketing team was formed that was responsible for distributing special instrumentation, audiometers, sound rooms, sound level meters and hearing protection systems, throughout a nine-state region.
At the same time, E.A.R. became involved with Dr. Sydney Gurshkov, a chemist from Insta-Mold Products, Inc., where the two companies combined their professional talents to research, manufacture and internationally market high-grade silicones to the hearing industry. This included recreational sports such as shooting, motorcycling, music, aviation, swimming, and surfing. Today both companies are on their second generation of family leadership and continue to be highly recognized in multiple countries and hearing healthcare platforms.
With additions and new technology developments with 3D printing, digital lab manipulation, software design and improving our own Insta-Mold silicones, E.A.R. has created the market ability to cater to a variety of industries.
