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.

I lived in the East Village in Manhattan, with a bedroom that faced onto a busy street and a flatmate who loved watching TV at extraordinary volumes late into the night. I tried many different earplugs, and these were the ones that let me sleep through the night. They're fantastic at blocking sound, they don't fall out like some smaller-profile plugs, and they don't hurt the ear canal the way some large plugs can. Highly recommended. The larger pack is nice because, like all disposable earplugs, these do get less effective (and somewhat gross) after a couple of nights' use.

After trying many earplugs during the last 30 years, I have to say that these are the best I've found. They are soft enough to be very comfortable, yet firm enough to hold in place and block the sound. You simply roll the end into a cylinder and insert it into your ear. The noise reduction rating is 33, and they do, indeed, block all but the very loudest noises. The material used is such that you can use them again and again. This makes their price a good investment.

I had ordered the Hearos Ear Plugs and was waiting for them to come in the mail. So, in the interim, I purchased a CVS brand, which wasn't worth squat! They simply did not work. Hearos Ear Plugs silenced my husband's tv noise, family chatter and outdoors sounds efficiently so I could get a good nights rest. I usually wake up a minimum of 3 times through a night. With Hearos Ear Plugs I not only sleep soundly, but I don't recall waking up not once through the night. I wake up refreshed and ready to start my day. And I seem to be more alert during the day as well. The plugs are more comfortable and easier to mold into a small enough cone to get into my ears. I have small ears and if I can't pinch them narrow enough it will not give me the right fit. You have to get them completely into the ear canal and allow them to expand to receive the best results. I couldn't do it with the others. Again, the easy molding with the Hearos makes it easier to cone them and get them into the ear canal. And they're VERY comfortable! You can forget that they're there. Love, Love, Love them!!!! Now I can't imagine a night without them. I'm ready to order my next package because I don't want to run out and be without them. Oh yeah....I like them that much!!! AWESOME!!!!

Seriosly, these ear plugs are the best I have used. I use them to sleep every night. My wife forgets that I put them in and my response to her is "What" Cannot hear much with them in.

These are one of the best ear plugs I have found that really work! My husband bought a small package at the store by accident since I used another product. I started to use them and was pleasantly surprised how well they block the sounds out. I use them when I go to sleep because I am a light sleeper and my husband snores really LOUD (that's another issues. LOL). Or while I am working on school papers, I wear them to concentrate when my family is around or the TV is on. I am very pleased with this product and am glad my husband "accidently" bought them for me!

To work the best for you, it's important that you put the plug into your ear canal. I give the earplug a good roll between my thumb and index finger. Right before I put the earplug in, I lift my ear from the top to open up the ear canal more. I keep rolling the earplug and then immediately put the earplug inside and make sure it's push in really well. Then I keep my index finger of the part of the earplug that is seen and keep it push in while the earplug expands in my ear. That way it doesn't work itself out some while expanding. This has worked the best for me as I have been doing this for years and have it down to a science!! HA ha. Good luck.

I tried this so I could sleep in spite of my husband's incessant snoring at night. This did not work at all. Might be ok to protect ears from loud noises (trap shooting, etc) but didn't help me at all.

I bought these ear plugs based on the glowing reviews on Amazon.com.

I was most sorely disappointed, when I tried to block out the sound of the Fiesta festivities on the San Antonio Riverwalk this week. These plugs did little to dull the sound. I resorted to plugs I bought at Rite Aid some time ago, which were gel-like and covered your ear well to avoid any sound. They worked beautifully.

Despite all these glowing reviews, I definitely cannot recommend this product, and I am sorry I bought them.

I decided to buy these ear plugs because of a noisy neighbour who liked to yell in the middle of the night and I was having a hard time trying to sleep. While these did manage to isolate external sound, after wearing them for a while I began to feel a lot of pain inside my ears. The problem is these ear plugs seem to be too big for people who have small ear holes like me. Not sure if these are available in different sizes. For now I won't be buying any ear plugs (of any brand) again.

I originally bought these earplugs for a 24+ hour flight, but figured I'd try them out before making my journey. I quickly discovered that the world we live in is a really noisy place, where modern technology produces the background noise for our lives. However, when I put these in the world seems a lot quieter and I am left with only my thoughts. I've use them to take midday naps, to concentrate on work at the office or mute the sound of crying babies on trains and airplanes and to have a legitimate reason not to talk to people around the office whenever I didn't have time to be caught up in lots small talk.Hearos Ear Plugs - Xtreme Protection Series, 14 pr
