Ideal for use where noise is a problem, either in work or leisure activities (view larger).

The 3M E-A-R Classic Earplugs were the world's first foam earplugs and are still one of the most widely used earplugs today. These earplugs are stiff enough when compressed to make fitting easy, yet soft enough to be comfortable in the ear for extended wear. Slow recovery, low pressure foam fits snugly to create a noise barrier that helps protect hearing from loud sounds. Bright yellow color allows supervisors to conduct quick visual hearing protection compliance checks.

B00065TQCW-310-1001-head
Comfortable fit for all day wear (view larger).

Recommended applications include chipping, chiseling, drilling, furnace operations, grinding, heavy equipment operations, machining, pouring/casting, power fastening, riveting, sanding, sawing and welding. These earplugs are commonly used in the following industries: agriculture, automotive, chemicals, construction, general manufacturing, healthcare, oil and gas, and pharmaceuticals. These regular size earplugs comfortably fit most people.

These earplugs have a Noise Reduction Rating (NRR) of 29 dB, CSA Class AL. These earplugs are test compatible with the 3M E-A-Rfit Validation System. Moisture resistance helps maintain a consistent expansion time, even when humidity is present. Flame resistance helps protect against potential arc flash situations and provides for safer storage.

Why Use Hearing Protection?

Hearing loss due to noise is almost entirely preventable by judicious use of hearing protection. To find out which hearing protection products are best for you, try different devices from the wide variety available today. Be sure to carefully read the instructions — hearing protection must fit properly and be worn correctly to do the job.

Hearing protector effectiveness is specified by a Noise Reduction Rating (NRR), typically ranging from 15 to 35 decibels. In practice, the protection that normally can be achieved is about 10 to 20 decibels. The more carefully you fit and wear hearing protectors, the higher your protection will be.

Why 3M Safety?

Doing it right means doing it safely. That means choosing the right safety products before the project begins. With a full portfolio of personal protection and home safety products, 3M Safety Products are designed to help keep DIYers and professionals protected in and around the home. We strive to give consumers the confidence in knowing they are prepared with reliable products from a trusted brand, so they can stay focused on the task at hand, not on their safety products.

Within months of our wedding, I knew I was never going to get any sleep unless I started wearing earplugs. My husband's snoring was deep, loud, and irritatingly sporadic (yes, turned out to be apnea). I tried a few other brands/types, and then found these. Have worn them every night since then. The beauty of them is how his snoring is just a background sound, but when something is wrong - with him, something in the house, an alarm that goes off - I hear everything I need to hear! Just a note: I wear one pair for 3-4 nights (putting them back in the cardboard pack each morning to keep them clean) and then toss them. Have never had an infection or irritation. They're a keeper!

These were PERFECT for my needs. I have to sleep in the same room with a VERY LOUD, yet sporadic snorer. The volume of the snoring changes from moment to moment. The noise is impossible to become accustomed to and sleep through due to the stops and starts in addition to volume changes.

I wanted something to block out the snoring, but at the same time I needed to hear this snorer if he spoke or got up and moved about, so I was worried about using ear plugs. These were PERFECT for my needs--they block out 99% of the snore sounds, but so far, over several weeks use, I've been able to hear the snorer if he speaks to me (or talks in his sleep) or gets out of bed and moves around the room.

I'm a very light sleeper and have been using ear plugs for years, but never really found any I really liked. My ear canal is very small and fancy foam earplugs are too wide and too long for me. Not only do they hurt my ears but they don't block noise efficiently (probably because they pop off during the night). A month ago, I tried the 3M ear plugs during a hospital stay. At first, I thought they seemed pretty rough and doubted they would block noise, but after one night at the hospital with nurses running all over the place and me staying asleep, I was hooked! I've been using them ever since and have been a much happier sleeper. The cat no longer wakes me up; nor does my husband when he leaves for work, or the garbage guys, or the teenagers from across the street, etc. My ears don't hurt. The ear plugs are flushed with the ear; Nothing is sticking out, so they stay in place all night. On the minus side, they don't last as long as the "fancy" ones because you can't wash them and they harden pretty fast, but if your ears are clean and you keep them in a case you can easily us the same pair for a week.

Note added after receiving latest package: My review was based on the pair I received during my hospital stay and the first few pairs I tried. The ones I ordered last (huge box) were not as good. They were much harder and uncomfortable and certainly can't be used for up to a week. After a night, not only do they hurt a lot but they have become 50% less effective at blocking noise. I would rate them two stars only. I'm guessing "freshness" is an issue. It would be useful to be able to check the manufacturing date of a batch before ordering. The last ones I got certainly had ample time to dry before making it to me... The copyright info on the box is from 2010.

Perfect for smaller ear canals, can be scrunched down to fit and not put a lot of pressure on the ear as do all the others I've tried.

I have used these for over 20 years but since 3 M bought them and called them classic the quality markedly deteriorated. The only thing that is the same as befor is the package.

They used to be great, but now corporate profits are more important than a legacy of quality.

I have been using this product for years to help me read and sleep in peace and quiet. However, the manufacturing quality of these earplugs has diminished over time. The earplugs length has gotten shorter and shorter. Consequentially, the sound attenuation is less effective now. Also, it is easier for these shorter earplugs to get stuck in the ear canal. On top of that, I think they changed the foam type used in the earplugs to a type of foam with poorer attenuation characteristics. I suspect these were all cost cutting measures. But, the consequences might be hearing loss for those people who use the earplugs to protect their ears from high decibel environments. I plan to switch to a different brand.

I've used 3M EAR Classics for 5.5 years with great results. I used to use Flents, but one time I got a defective couple of boxes (200 pair/box as I recall). The plugs would spring back instantly, instead of gradually, making it very difficult to insert. So I switched to EAR Classics and never had a problem since.

I have used EAR Classics for protection from extremely loud noises, and to sleep through loud snoring or other disturbing noises. I even use them in loud church services, so that my hearing will last. They're fabulous to have on the plane, in case you sit next to a very loud crying baby.

Occasionally I have difficulty rolling a plug into a nice cylindrical shape, and if the shape is not right, the fit in the ear can be uncomfortable.

As far as I know, only custom made plugs can be beat EAR Classics for noise attenuation and comfort. There is a tad of frequency distortion - church music sounds better without the plugs - but the effect is small.

No ear plug completely removes all noise; it only attenuates it. The only way to utterly remove noise is to use noise cancellation or drown it out with white noise. With good ear plugs, of course, much less white noise is needed. I sleep through loud snoring just fine using only these ear plugs. The snoring, though, is one room over, not in my own bed.

Ideally, you wear the plugs once and discard, but I use them maybe 4 times. Each time, the noise attenuation degrades, and the plugs get soiled from ear canal fluids.

I just ordered my first box from Amazon. The price is much lower than at the vendor I've always used in the past.
