These are by far the worst - the problem is the foam - unlike any other kind of earplug this one does not keep its compressed form for more than 1 second. So basically when you're not applying pressure they go back to fully expanded, which makes proper insertion impossible, at least for my (normal I think) ear canal. And even with flash like speed - meaning squishing them right outside the ear and then rushing to get them in they don't work, you always feel them pushing in, which is what you never want with earplugs, because A) that means they're not taking the form of your ear canal, and therefore not providing good protection and B) you're pushing back earwax, impacting it on the tympanic membrane, which is bad (the same reason you're not supposed to stick cotton buds in ears).
These are pretty much useless really, and I doubt I'm doing it wrong since I've been doing this for over 2 years.
Instead of getting these do yourself a favour and get 3M 1100 earplugs, they're made from the best memory foam I've ever seen, have the same SNR rating (37) and are super comfortable. You can't find normal quantities on Amazon (e.g less than 100 pairs but you can find them on e bay)
They don't block out background noise completely so if your a light sleeper these may not be for you. They do sufficiently muffle background noise though. I find if i have these in, then put my tv on a low volume I can't hear the music or shouting. I would recommend these to any student who is living with hellish people!!!
I think your supposed to use a new pack every night but I normally get about 4 days use out of mine. So they are really worth the value!
Everyone's ears are different obviously, so you can't know how good a fit you will get until you try them, but for me these fit well. I have tried the laser lights in the past for example and they were a bit too small for me. However, I gave them to my sister and they fit her nicely. When you first start using a pair of these, they squish down nicely while rolling between your thumb and finger and are very easy to insert into your ear. They are soft and smooth and don't cause any pain and discomfort for me.
After several uses, they will begin to lose their effectiveness - they don't squish down the same or stay squished as long, meaning they are harder to get into your ears and don't fit as snugly. Eventually you'll likely wake up with one or both having fallen out of your ears if you use them too long. It seems to vary but I do seem to get quite a lot of uses out of each pair.
I might just be imagining it (or maybe my ears have changed slightly over the years!) but with recent sets I've used, the maybe don't feel quite as good as before - I'm not sure if they fit quite as snugly or last quite as long. They are cheap and individually packaged and keep out the noise though, so I'll keep using them for sure.

My husband's snoring reaches 85db, enough to cause hearing loss. I have tried so many earplugs that I have lost count and, after 20 years, was about to send him for surgery and me... Read morePublished 1 month ago by Lise Martino
