3M™ E-A-Rsoft™ Yellow Neons™ Earplugs seal the earcanal with soft, slow-recovery foam for noise reduction and reliable hearing protection. The tapered earplugs are easy to roll down and insert, then expand within the earcanal for a comfortable, secure fit. Earplugs come in a poly bag to keep them clean prior to use. Regular size E-A-Rsoft Yellow Neons earplugs fit most earcanals. The large size is ideal for persons with larger earcanals. Recommended applications include assembly and mechanical, chipping, chiseling, cleaning, drilling, furnace operations, grinding, heavy equipment operations, machining, metal repair, painting, 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 soft polyurethane foam earplugs have a Noise Reduction Rating (NRR) of 33 dB and are test compatible with the 3M E-A-Rfit™ Validation System.
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.

All foam earplugs are designed to be single use, but like many people, I will re-use earplugs if they are not dirty and still seem to be working OK. Well, the Yellow Neons do not hold up well to re-use, so I run through the boxes more quickly than I did with the harder earplugs. If you are sweating at all, they will soak up a little moisture and then you can't roll them up properly to get them back in your ears a second time. And they pick up dirt faster than shinier earplugs such as the MaxLite or Purafit. Fortunately with a box of 200, you can grab a new pair as often as you like.
Note that the Yellow Neons are made in two sizes, and if you have larger ear canals you will want the larger ones.
To the commenter on the earlier review, who proclaimed that if you need earplugs your motorcycle is too loud: The reason for earplugs on a motorcycle is because of the wind noise. 70mph on the freeway can push the noise level in a motorcycle helmet up over 100 decibels. Add in a 20mph headwind and it can get downright painful. None of my gas engine motorcycles have loud pipes - I won't have it. But I still go through a couple hundred pairs of earplugs each year. Even when I ride electric motorcycles that make no more sound than a bicycle, I still wear earplugs if I expect to go over 50 mph or so.
however, the max lites DEFINITELY DEFINITELY seal better. i can hear a lot clearer with these ear soft plugs in than i can w/ the max lites, so that's a negative and a significant one considering i don't want to hear if i have ear plugs in. for this reason of approx equal comfort and better sealing i'd choose the max lite. the max lite also comes in an easier to deal w/ individual package per set (the plastic is perforated plastic and like a millisecond to open whereas these ear soft are a little more cumbersome packaging)
however, one factor that does arguably favor the ear softs is their shape is a straight "bullet" shape whereas the maxlites are a "T" shape. the only difference this makes is the ear softs look cooler coming out of your ears (or maybe better put "not as dorky") and can also be slightly more comfortable to sleep on since there's less material outside your ear. however, even taking this into consideration, i'd rather sleep on the max lites cause they aren't bad to sleep on and the sealing is just so much better with the max lites. i wished i'd stuck w/ what i had and just bought the max lites again.
I can leave these plugs in for more than an hour with no discomfort.
They block noise well, though I find the 33 db claim suspicious. I have used silicone plugs too, rated at 28 db reduction, that I perceive to do a much better job. However, I just can't wear silicone plugs for extended periods as I can these foams.
And the price ... around .$10 per pair, seems quite a good deal.
I'm happy with the product and recommend it to someone with small to medium ear canals who wants comfortable earplugs that do a good, not great, job of noise reduction.
