My husband snores... LOUDLY! The choice was to sleep in separate bedrooms, or try some ear plugs. I must have tried every kind on the market; wax, putty, rubber... They were all pretty uncomfortable and/or messy to handle. Then I tried Flents foam plugs, and they work like a dream. They took some getting used to (for awhile I noticed that I was removing them in my sleep), but now they stay in all night. They are super easy to insert. Just roll them between your fingers until they are thin and tuck them in! The foam expands inside the ear for a snug fit that muffles my husband's snoring. Of course, they don't make you deaf, which is nice, but they drown out the annoying sounds so I can fall asleep and stay asleep. They're also great for avoiding rude awakenings caused by ringing phones, false alarms of home security systems, and by the clinking sounds of my dogs' collar tags when they decide to scratch in the middle of the night. One pair of foam plugs can be re-used three or four times. Just store them in an air tight container when not in use until it's time for a new pair.

These plugs are the best for sleeping... I've tried many types and like these the most. Other plugs have a tendecy to fall out during the night because of their shape, but these ear plugs are short and cylindrical which keeps that from happening very often. The plugs expand when placed in your ear to keep out any noise. They also get 'stale' overtime, and need to be replaced.

I sleep much better with these in, since they really block out the noise. But in the morning, my ear canals feel inflamed from the pressure of the expanded foam.

Want to go to a Slayer, King Diamond or Entombed concert and actually hear the perfomance? Then wear these soft, comfortable ear plugs. I have been going to concerts since my late teens head-banging to the metal gods but now as a working schlubb I need my hearing and for only $3 and better decibel protection than most ear muff type ear protection, how much is your hearing worth?

Whether you are mowing your lawn, cutting the hedges or just trying to get some well-deserved sleep these earplugs do the trick. These are quite effective and do really work. It was truly unbelievable when I went to trim my hedges. I couldn't believe how these really reduced the sound to a soft whisper. These are amazing.

This product was great -- except they're very large, so they stuck out of my ears and looked silly. They'd be fine under a helmet or in bed at night. They're very good at keeping the noise level low!

I discovered foam ear plugs when I lived in New York City, where they were commonly sold in subway stations. Silicone, plastic, and wax earplugs had proven insufficient defense against loud neighbors and street noise. These foam earplugs were far more effective and comfortable than other types. I think I literally would not have survived years living in places even louder than New York if not for these earplugs. I couldn't have slept without them.

The ear plugs have a Noise Reduction Rating (NRR) of 29 decibels, which is higher than any other ear plugs on the market. They block out a lot of noise, but they are more effective at blocking higher frequency sound than low-frequency. This means that you won't be able to hear the telephone if you sleep with ear plugs in, but you might hear the neighbor's lawn mower. Their effectiveness at blocking out noise from machinery really depends upon the pitch, but foam ear plugs will always lower the volume somewhat. They're pretty good at blocking background chatter, television, or music.

I've used both Flents "Quiet! Please" and E*A*R brands, which are identical apart from color. Flents are off-white. E*A*R plugs are yellow. They are easy to use. You simply roll the ear plug between your fingers to squish it, then insert it in your ear canal. It expands to fit your ear snugly. Each ear plug can be used a few times before it has to be trashed. If you need noise relief in order to sleep or concentrate, Flents "Quiet! Please" ear plugs will be a great help.

As an insomniac living in the heart of New York City, these earplugs saved me! I've tried numerous other types of earplugs over the years but these are the best at blocking out noise & the best at staying in your ear the whole night through. The only downside is if you have sensitive ears, you can develop 'earache', but for me that relatively mild irritation (it clears up almost immediately if you don't use the earplugs for a couple of nights) is a price worth paying. Magic and worth every single cent!!!

I'd definitely recommend this product over the only other kind of ear plugs I've used. These are far better than that type like Silly Putty that I have to squish around and then jam into my ear like chewed-up gum. I always thought there was something vaguely distasteful about that. These earplugs, however, were foamy and comfortable, and blocked out (at least for me) ambient noise.

The Flents Quiet! Please Foam Ear Plugs worked out very well. I used them while mowing the lawn, and they performed just as well as the ear plugs I've been using in the past. They're comfortable to wear, and stayed in place. I also used them while in a noisy factory, and they effectively blocked out most of the noise. I'd recommend them to anyone looking for hearing protection.
