HOWARD LEIGHT "SUPER LEIGHT" (same model as MAX1)
Noise isolation: 4/5
I decided I needed some ear plugs after being at my wits' end from having to constantly listen to the low rumbly bass of my neighbor's stereo. It's not that it's that loud--but at any volume, constant repetition of a few single low-frequency notes really drives me crazy. I went over and knocked on the door, but no one answered; I'd bang on the wall and they'd turn it down, only to turn it up again half an hour later. I even tried expensive noise-canceling headphones (Audio Technica ATH-ANC7B Active Noise-Cancelling Closed-Back Headphones) and even though they helped, they didn't eliminate the noise.
After reading many positive reviews, I opted for Hearos Xtreme Protection. They have an NRR (noise reduction) of 33, which is the highest I could find in a plug I could afford.Read more ›
1. The only real complaint about these generally arises due to ear canal size and configuration. Before buying 200, pick up the retail package of six sets and try them out for size. These are available in most chain drug stores.
2. If they are too large, Leight has some other earplugs which may work better. If they are too small, try washing a pair among your clothes in a washing maching - just stick them in a pocket. This makes them puff up substantially.
3. To insert, roll the plug between thumb and forefinger of the hand on the same side as the intended ear. When the plug is about half its original diameter, slide it in the ear quickly. It may help to slide the opposite hand over your head and pull up on the ear as you insert the plug.
4. I find that these go in easily in the morning after a shower, but are more difficult to fit after lunch or in the evening. Any sort of lubrication that you don't mind having in your ear helps. A little spit works fine for me.
5. When you remove them, e.g. in the middle of the day for lunch, there will usually be earwax on the plugs. I usually just wipe that off with a napkin and re-use the plug for the afternoon's efforts. YMMV.
6. These can be re-used, but they're cheap enougn not to, especially if one buys in lots of 200. Keeping them clean helps. Ideally, one need not do this, but I may run short on a trip and I'd rather re-use them than do without. There is a risk of infection if one overdoes this.

I can now sleep through all of those little things that used to wake me, AND the snoring! I recommend combining the earplugs with the use of a fan. I keep my floor fan on, facing away, and I am in my own little blissful quiet zone. Make sure that you follow the directions for using the earplugs or they may not work properly.
Advice for those who complained about the size: These generally come in three sizes. The higher the noise reduction rating, the larger the ear plug is, and more noise gets blocked out:
Smallest, with lowest noise reduction (But still pretty darn good!) : NRR30 Howard Leight Maxlite Uncorded Earplugs hearing protection 200 pair
Medium in size and NRR, and these are my favorites : NRR32 Howard Leight LL1 Laser Lite Uncorded Earplugs hearing protection 200 pair
For larger ear canals, and with the highest NRR of this brand/style : NRR33 Howard Leight Max-1 Uncorded Earplugs 200 pair
My only problem with this product is that the smooth finish tends to stick in the ear when you get a bit sweaty or don't get your ears dry after you bathe.
