This review is from: 20 Pairs of 3M 1100 Ear Plugs (Personal Care)
My Girlfriend is a heavy snorer, and it has become extremely hard to concentrate and sleep. She goes to sleep a lot earlier than me whilst I read a book until quite late, but I found myself not being able to concentrate, and when it came to sleeping I would end up getting hardly any at all. It was becoming a real strain on our relationship to the point where I would sleep downstairs on the sofa just to get a good nights sleep. So of course came the endless quest for decent earplugs which would completely drown her out, and enable me to finally sleep.
I went through many different products, to name a couple: 20 Pairs of Moldex Spark 7800 Ear Plugs - which would quieten the noise, but nowhere near the level I needed to go to sleep. Then I tried 20 Pairs of Howard Leight Laser Lite Ear Plugs, which many people were recommending online. They were good, but didn't fit in my ears as well as I would have liked and were an uncomfortable shape for my ear. After many others (I think I tried about 5 brands of earplug), I eventually bought these - just on the fact that they were bog-standard looking and had half-decent reviews.
I have used these earplugs for about six weeks now, and I am so glad I did. When I inserted them the way the pack actually told me to do it (squeeze them into a very thin shape, pull back the top of your ear and insert quite deep but still enough that some part of the earplug still sticks out), I found that the snoring was completely drowned out, and I could enjoy an absolutely silent night. Its true that sometimes I have woken to find one earplug fallen out, but this doesn't happen very often, and to be honest I'm yet to find an earplug that doesn't fall out in the night every now and then. These have now basically saved my relationship as I was becoming very resentful of something my girlfriend couldn't change, but now I no longer have to sleep on the sofa and can have a wonderful nights sleep in our bed.
