The best ones I found were Flents Ear Stopples SoftWax/Cotten; Howard Leight MAX; Ohropax; Bio Ears with Microban; and "World's Finest Natural Ear Plugs." None of them work as well or fit as well as MACKS. PERIOD. They have various kinds of problems among them such as letting in noise, not staying put, being too hard to conform to your ears, etc.
Yes, I know some people have commented that they can get dirty and feel a little sticky. Well they work better BECAUSE they are a little sticky so they stay in place and don't develop a gap during the night when you move your head and let the noise in. If you keep them in the container they came in instead of sitting them out then they won't pick up dust.
A close second would be the Worlds Finest Earplugs that are made out of essentially the same kind of material - silicone. But they are not as pliable as MACKS and not quite as tacky so they start out good but then in the middle of the night they let in some noise around the edges.
No, I don't work for MACKS or have anything to do with them or gain from sales or own any stock. I'm just writing this to help other people who have suffered through years of not being able to sleep through SNORING. THESE THINGS WORK!!!!!!! :):):)
1. The earplugs should be a cone shaped 1 inch long and 1/2 inch wide at the top. They need to be wetted in order to insert well. A little water or spit does the job. When firmly seated, they will create a strong seal and noise just STOPS dead. If they slip out, they will not seal well and are pretty much useless to stop noise or water. About 2 days of use before I put them aside to get washed and grab another (used) pair.
2. The earplugs can be WASHED and reused many, many times. The best way to wash is to place in the washing machine with a few lint free cloths, low water setting, and a little detergent and bleach. They come out sticky like they were when new. Even old ones will yellow but work well, especially after they warm up and become softer in your ear. When they become too hard and dried out, throw them away.
3. The size they come in the package are TOO SMALL for me. I take about a 1/5 of one of the plugs and add it to the earplug WHEN I FIRST USE THEM. You can tell if they are too small if they are hard to remove from your ear. If they are too BIG, they will be uncomfortable when lying on them. The extra piece will pretty much stick in but has a tendency to start separating again after a couple dozen wearings. Be careful that you do not let the separate piece fall off in your ear. Never happened to me yet, but...
4. Mack's are GREAT for swimming. Inserted properly, they will keep water pretty much out. Never completely dry but really close.Read more ›
While these earplugs did not block chainsaw noise from the street enough that I could sleep (I went to bed early; they worked late clearing storm-downed limbs), they do work for most sounds that can regularly disrupt my sleep.
I go to bed earlier than my family, and these earplugs block all the routine noises likely to interfere with my sleep (wife and child attempting oral communication between home's first and second floors; my 20# dog's occasional, shrill barks; phones ringing; TV sounds; computer games in son's adjoining bedroom; doors opening and closing; toilets flushing).
Be careful at first, as you can sleep through all but the loudest alarm clocks--and even the loudest ones will need to ring longer. My alarm's extended ringing was waking a light-sleeper in the next room, so I bought the Sonic-Boom alarm clock (SBB500ss) from Amazon, as it has a vigorous vibrator the slips under the mattress and would truly wake all but the numbest.
Silicone earplugs do pick up oil and soil from the ears. The more they pickup, the less tacky they become (I use them anyway, as they stay put long enough for everyone else to go to bed, and I'm used to pushing them in a little once or twice through the night).
One reviewer mentioned washing them in the washing machine. I've never tried it; I may try washing a pair by hand first.Read more ›
