This review is from: Quies Protection Auditive - Earplugs 35dB-3 Pairs (Personal Care)
These ear plugs are very effective - if you use them properly. The walls in my student house are paper thin and I can hear every time someone opens the door, goes to the toilet or sneezes; however, with the plugs fully inserted, I cannot hear a thing. At home, my house is a permanent building site, with saws, hammers and sanders blasting away in the early hours, but they can only be heard as dull thuds!
It does have it limitations: it doesn't block out low-pitched noises very well e.g. if you live next to a person with a very low voice!
A few tips:
-The plugs have to be rolled very thinly between the thumb and forefinger, then quickly inserted into the ear. You have to put them fairly deep to be effective - this can be a bit uncomfortable at first, but you quickly become accustomed to it.
-Don't wash them in hot water: this makes them sponge like and they become useless.
-If they are uncomfortable, place only 1 plug in and sleep with the other ear to the pillow.
