prolonged use (such as sleeping with them) will cause your ear canals to become slightly tender after each prolonged use. However, the tenderness will go away shortly after. I believe this is because they seem to expand and put a 'slightly higher' pressure on your ear canals than other earplugs. I presume this is part of the reason why they work better than other ear plugs. So, just be aware of this if you use them for long periods of time. I use these for studying and use an entire different brand of earplug (one that doesn't put so much pressure on the canal) for sleeping.
I thought I would share this as it was a nice relief to finally find some earplugs that blocked everything out for me! Hope this helps!
Earplugs only last so long. They get goopy with earwax, and they lose that elasticity that makes them effective. I had been using a brand from Wal-Mart called, "quiet please," or something like that. As I said, for my particular needs, this brand worked reasonably well. When my last pair was getting stale, I thought I might look around for something a little better than just "reasonable." I turned to Amazon.com reviews. I read the reviews on these orange plugs and thought I would give them a try.
So far, great! These have a better shape than my old brand. They taper at the end. OK, taper isn't the word. They get bigger at the end opposite your eardrum. What's the word for that--flange? Anyway, I think that actually helps. Also, to make my old brand work effectively, I had to really jam them far into my ear, which was a touch uncomfortable. With these, I do not. After a few uses of the same pair of plugs, they are still blocking sound very well.
So yeah, I give these a thumbs up.
Here's a trick to make earplugs more effective:
Just a touch of water to the plug will help cement them in. Don't douse them under the sink or anything, just wet your fingers under the tap and moisten the plugs. Works great!

After 30+ years in the construction arena, I know ear plugs. This style plug has always worked best for me. It's the 'skin' on them that makes for a superior seal. Read morePublished 17 days ago by Edgewalker
