From the Manufacturer

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. 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.

Not only is noise present in our daily routines and recreational activities, but millions of Americans work in hazardous noise on a daily basis. Estimates from the National Institutes of Health suggest that hearing loss afflicts 28 million Americans. About one third of those cases are at least partially attributable to noise. Hearing loss due to noise is almost entirely preventable by judicious use of hearing protection.

For more than a century, 3M has applied innovation and technology to improving our customers’ lives and supporting their business goals. Today the company, from its headquarters in St. Paul, Minnesota, serves industrial and commercial customers and consumers in nearly 200 countries. Occupational Health and Environmental Safety products, focused on worker safety, include respirators, hearing-protection products, air-monitoring devices, environmental-safety products, and comprehensive training programs. The 3M brand, across thousands of products, represents consistency, superior quality, and value.

These plugs saved my life! For the first two years of my married life I was convinced I'd never again get a full night's sleep. My husband was a snorer! How in the world did I get myself into this situation? Enter 3M E-A-R Classic earplugs. I met a very nice lady who happened to mention that her husband worked in a plant and had to wear earplugs due to the noise. She now wore the earplugs herself because he snored. Bingo! I bought an entire box of them. I think there were around 250 earplugs in that box and it even had a dispenser. After almost 30 years of marriage I still use them. They work great and the marriage is still going strong. Thank you, 3M

Been through a few 200 count boxes of these type of ear plugs. The ones in the bags vs the "pillow pack" or whatever they're called come in a box half the size so that's a plus right there. I've read other reviews for these ear plugs that say they are reusable but for me once I put them in if I take them out they don't seal as well. This could be due to my sweating in the Florida heat and humidity while working or doing yard work. They aren't the most comfortable but for the price I'm fine with the feel.

Each pair is individually packaged in little poly bags. Very hygienic. I always have these type foam ear plugs with me. I've only used the ones in the little boxes before which work great but these will fit better in purse or pocket. I love these little yellow ear plugs. They fit my ears better as the "shaped" or "conical type" ear plugs don't seem to stay in my ears. These have a decibel rating reduction of 29 which is good for most applications. If I need additional protection I wear these in addition to the ear muff type protective gear and it really helps. I wear foam ear plugs frequently as my ears tend to be very sensitive to life. These are a life saver for me. I re-use them a few times and then throw them away. I've tried washing them and reusing them but they don't have the noise blocking power as they get washed. Now if someone can only figure out a way to re-purpose them or recycle them so I wouldn't be throwing them in the landfill that would be great.

When properly pugged in the ear, these block 99% sound - excellent for those of us with snoring husbands. Good product.

i bought these for sleeping as my boyfriend tends to snore. i researched a bunch of ear plugs and these seemed to be the best bang for the money. While they dull sounds, they don't completely eliminate them. But overall, it's quiet enough for me to sleep. However, the reason for the 3 out of 5 stars is comfort. They don't always expand well inside my ear. Also, I'm a side sleeper and when I lay on my side with them in, I get pain in my ear from the pressure of my pillow against the plug in my ear. I end up ripping the plugs out half way through the night. If you are buying these for sleeping, I would try a smaller pack first to make sure they are comfortable for you, I will do that next time I buy ear plugs for sleeping, as I'm sure there are more comfortable ones out there.

These are individually wrapped pairs that make it easy to toss a couple pair anywhere you may need them. We tossed a few in the tool box, yard work box (for chainsaw/weed eater/brush knife tools), glovebox.... I don't work daily in an environment with loud noises; however, I value my hearing immensely. It's a comfort to have a clean pair of these handy when I need them. They block out noise very well and should one happen to fall out the bright yellow makes it easier to find. I know corded versions can be useful; however, when I tend to need earplugs, I'm usually working outside in brushy conditions. Not having strings for branches to catch means I keep my earplugs where I want them- in my ears.

They work great the first time but didn't block out as much noise the second time.

The item is reasonably good and the cost is right. But I was hoping these would be a little softer. I usually purchase ear plugs from a Canadian drug store when I am in Canada (same shape and size as these, also foam, but brand name escapes me) and I hoped these would be the same, more or less. But these are much firmer, don't mold to my ear drums as comfortably, and eject a bit, not stifling the sound as effectively as the softer kinds. Though they are certainly more effective than the conical shaped ones you find at most U.S drug stores.
