I use these when on holiday with my Dad. My Mum won't fly after a minor plane crash a few years ago so I get to look after the old man when he wants to go to Africa and in a few weeks the Galapagos. These are quite pricy trips and I have yet to convince him to shell out for single accommodation for me so we have to share a room/tent/cabin.
Everyone has a claim to knowing someone who snores terribly but my Dad really is the worst person in the world and I have come close to patricide. Just put the pillow over his face and press down......
Anyway, you take the cotton off these things, squidge them about for a couple of minutes until soft, mould them into a cone shape and jam them in. You have to get them quite soft and really push them in a bit and squidge them in a bit more to seal off your ears and then you can barely hear a thing. I've tried foam and rubber earplugs before but can never get them to fit well enough and they always fall out. These wax ones are great because they fit to your individual ear. They do fall out sometimes so you have to work on a technique to getting them to stay in but they are a hundred times better than the foam ones I've tried. You really want fresh ones each night so a box of 14 will last a week.
I've never had a problem getting these out in the morning. You just have to get a fingernail into them and basically claw them out. They don't fall apart so I've never worried about getting bits lodged in there. I always try to make sure my ears are fairly clean of natural wax because you could end up compacting that into your ear but otherwise you just make sure these are really soft before you push them in.
As ever doctors will tell you to never put anything into your ear smaller than your elbow and you should be aware that sticking anything in your ear may cause damage but I've used these loads of times and never had a problem, you just have to get them soft before your stick them in. So to speak.
If you are happy with sticking things in your ears against strict medical advice then I can recommend these and I would never travel with my Dad without them. We're also taking some for the people in the next cabin.Read more ›
My partner snores and these wax ear plugs have saved our relationship! They are comfortable, hygienic and block out pretty well all sounds. They are also used by divers as I bought mine in a diving shop.
These are the best earplugs I've found. Excellent quality, and so comfortable you forget you're wearing them. My housemates in the bedrooms above and below mine (an accordion beginner above, and a deluded singer songwriter below) used to keep me awake but with these I can sleep perfectly, whilst still being able to hear my phone ring or a knock on the door.
Having tried some of the other brands of earplugs on the market,I can confidently say that these are the best yet.They are very comfortable to wear and block out most noise if they are inserted properly.They are especially effective for handgun shooting and other outdoor pursuits when excessive noise is a problem.This is a very impressive product.Well worth the money.
I've tried all sorts of different earplugs and come to the conclusion that if someone could invent and market a pair that actually worked and totally drowned out all noise, then they would be a multi-millionaire and probably the saviour of numerous marriages.
In the absence of said sound-suppresing-entreprenurialism, these seem to be about the best alternative. They certainly muffle my wifes snores to a generally acceptable rumble instead of the usual ear-splitting, pounding of a pneumatic drill.
I first used these at the Monaco Grand Prix some years ago on the recommendation of a Pharmacist in Nice! They worked exceptionally well then and they now help in deadening the deafening snoring of my husband!
