Even better than the Ultimate Softness series
on March 4, 2009
I had been using Hearos' Ultimate Softness series earplugs for sleeping, which were good, but the Xtreme Protection series has them beat for both comfort and noise blocking. They are slightly thicker and softer than the Ultimate Softness earplugs, but are just as easy to roll up and insert, if you follow the directions. (And unlike the Pretty in Pink series, they do not expand before you can manage to fit them into your ear.) The Xtreme Protection earplugs have eliminated the uncomfortable pressure that I occasionally experienced with the Ultimate Softness series, and seem to block out noise a little bit better. I recommend these for quiet and comfort.
If you're using this type of earplug for the first time, don't be discouraged---it takes a little time and practice to get the hang of inserting them properly for the best results. Stick with it, and you'll be rewarded with more comfortable sleep.
