There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
For the purpose I'm using them for, which is to reduce the decibels of my band, I found them to reduce the decibels, but not in a good way. I have tried all of the different filters and none of them produce a good musical result. Too much of "something" is take away.
These are very soft, which makes them a lot more comfortable compared to other ear plugs I've used. This flexibility of the ear plug unfortunately makes them hard to push into the ear to get a good seal. They include a tool that assist in placing the ear plug in your ear, however, if plan to use the string that attaches to each ear plug so that the ear plugs can stay together, then the tool that helps push them into your ear won't work. It pushes on the string connector rather than the ear plug. I like having the string attached to the ear plugs so I can hang them around my neck when not in my ears and also to keep from easily losing them. But I do not use the string because I can't get these ear plugs in my ears without the tool.
They are small and less obtrusive than other ear plugs.
Bottom line for me is that these just do not sound good when listening to music. I have had success with the Etymotic Research ER20 and will stick with them for now.
I work as a flight attendant who flies long-haul routes on airplanes. While you get used to the ambient noise, it's nice to have a quiet environment during crew rest breaks.
While the air plugs do not completely block noise, it diminishes ambient airplane noise greatly.
These are simple to put on, and they drown out airplane noise! I've also used them while traveling as a passenger and I pretty much forgot I had them on as I napped, read or enjoyed a much quieter flight.
-- The sound filter at the back of each Alpine earplug is simple; it contains a tiny hole that allows some sound to come in from outside. The earplugs come with a second pair of sound filters that provide more volume reduction; each of those filters contains an even tinier hole. The filters for moderate volume reduction are made of grayish plastic, while the filters for more volume reduction are made of gold-tinted plastic. The tiny hole in each grayish Alpine filter allows enough airflow that slowly inserting or removing the filters does not cause much pressure on my eardrums. The hole appears to reduce humidity buildup in my ear canal, but a slight amount of humidity buildup still occurs when I am sleeping, and more occurs if I am walking or bicycling slowly.
-- For sound reduction, the Etymotics earplugs use a circuitous air path with a significantly larger cross-sectional area than the Alpines, so the Etymotics probably allow even more air exchange.
Insertion and carrying:
-- The Alpine earplugs come with an insertion device, but I don't have to use it; I just grip the "tail" of each earplug with the tip of my thumb and index finger. The earplugs flex in the middle, so after you start inserting one, in effect you are steering the front end of the sound filter, and only indirectly steering the front end of the earplug. With the insertion device, less care is required to get the earplug oriented straight into the ear canal. I avoid placing a finger flat on the back of the sound filter, to avoid air pressure against my eardrum. A person having long fingernails or big fingers might need something like the insertion device. The insertion device is quite simple, basically a tube like a pen barrel. The insertion device probably would be easy to lose. The insertion device was shipped in the carrying case. The carrying case is the weak point of this product; the screw-on lid is attached by inadequate threading. I would prefer a translucent case, so I could tell what was inside.
-- The Etymotics case is significantly better, although it could be narrower and less angular; I used scissors to round some of the corners. The tail on each Etymotics earplug is longer, making it easy to grasp, but easier to bump against things.
Comfort and cleaning:
-- The Alpine earplugs are comfortable enough that I can wear them all night, including lying on my side. However, if the "tail" of the earplug is aimed straight down, it is not comfortable, so I have to tilt my head a bit forward or back. In the course of a couple of weeks, one earplug fell out once, so I pushed it in a little farther. They haven't fallen out during the daytime. They are fairly wide and short, so they don't need to go very far into the ear canal, which helps avoid impaction of earwax, and helps comfort given that the size and shape of the ear canal changes as nearby muscles inside the head tense and relax. I removed the earwax from my ears before using the earplugs. I wash the earplugs after ~8-16 hours of use, to avoid a slightly itchy feeling. The earplugs can be washed with water and a drop of detergent. If I wash the earplugs with the sound filters in place, water that gets in the tiny sound holes takes a long time to evaporate. I either gently remove the sound filters before washing, or later clear water from the sound holes using air pressure from a rubber bulb. After washing, I shake water from inside the silicon rubber earplugs, to keep it from going into the sound filters when I reinstall them. If I ever get earwax in the tiny hole in a sound filter, I may try removing it using a dental irrigator such as a Waterpik. If the earplugs are pushed in too far, a wrinkle may form in one of the umbrella-shaped lamellae, which might feel slightly itchy. In that case, the earplugs can be removed and reinstalled.
[Later, I temporarily removed the sound filter and shortened the silicon-rubber tail of the earplug by 2 mm, which increased comfort when I sleep on my side, and made it easier to control the insertion angle. However, the sound filter subsequently did not fit as securely in the tail of the earplug, so I pushed the 2-mm cut-off section over the tail, making the tail grip the sound filter tightly.]
-- I found the pliable plastic used for the Etymotics earplugs to be too firm, and the earplugs to be too long for comfort in my ears. The Etymotics pressed earwax back into my ears, so I needed to flush my ears. The Etymotics are not supposed to be washed, which seems impractical to me.
Sound blocking by pitch and direction:
-- The Alpine earplugs block high-pitched sounds somewhat more than low-pitched sounds, which is what I want. They allow some sound to come through, so I can hear people talking nearby, clearly but quietly so I may not catch everything that is said. I am not a musician, so I cannot comment on that application. My own voice sounds loud, which is to be expected with earplugs. The sound filters are directional; somewhat more high-pitched sound comes in straight from the back of each earplug, where the sound-filter hole is aimed. The ear canal and outer-ear shape cause some directionality, but the earplugs add more. The earplugs blocked most high-pitched noise from ~20-mph wind (~32 kph), while allowing lower-pitched rumbling and buffeting sounds to come through.
Caution: if you use earplugs while walking or bicycling, it is important to use your eyes more since you are blocking some sound.
-- To my surprise, the Etymotics earplugs are directional too, maybe because of the cup shape of the pliable rear lamella. The Etymotics pass more high-pitched sound, and seem to pass more volume at all pitches, than the Alpines.
-- I would buy the Alpine earplugs again, and I would recommend them.
Comfort is adequate for extended use. High-pitched sounds are reduced somewhat more than low-pitched sounds (of course, this could be a negative for you). The sound filters allow a tiny but important amount of air transfer. Cleaning the earplugs is practical.
The carrying case not useful for my purposes. I wonder if Alpine could afford to charge less; the product is very well designed and made, but simple. Transmission of high-pitched sounds is somewhat directional.
-- I would not buy the Etymotics earplugs again, mainly because I found them to be uncomfortable. The Etymotics are not supposed to be washed. The Etymotics "tail" gets in the way of sleeping on my side, etc. The carrying case is OK.
