I have a very bad case of ADD which stems from a childhood accident. I am in law school now and require earplugs when I study to block out as much noise as possible. I have gone through 7 different types of ear plugs over the last 4 months. THIS IS THE BEST EARPLUG I HAVE FOUND and I don't need to search anymore! These earplugs block out more noise then any other ear plug I have ever used! Furthermore, they are one of the cheapest (in price) I have ever bought!

ONE PRECAUTION:
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!

These ear plugs deserve all the raves they've received. They're by far the best I've used and among the least expensive. And they hold up very well when used repeatedly. A tip: When compressing them by rolling them between your thumb and index finger, do it gradually to avoid folds than can act as channels for wind and noise to seep through. This is the only brand I'll buy from now on.

Yeah, so I have a problem with the neighbor lady upstairs. This doesn't make much sense to me, but she runs inside her apartment! These apartments are NOT THAT BIG! I had a roommate like this once; she was just a whirlwind of chaos. Unfortunately, my upstairs neighbor gets up around 5:30 a.m. for her morning noise-making. My answer has been to use earplugs, and this has been reasonably effective.

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!

I am a very light sleeper. The slightest sound, light or movement wakes me up. My husband is a very loud snorer and I went through a sample kit of 20 different earplugs and nothing would drown the sound of the snoring. These were the best pair of earplugs I've tried that allowed me to get a good night's sleep. I found them comfortable as well. My ear canals are quite narrow and most earplugs were painful to take out in the morning. Definitely recommend!

These plugs are AMAZING! I have used them for riding, shooting, loud auto work, and they drown out the sound for EVERYTHING! I read reviews on other sites about people complaining how they are uncomfortable for people with smaller ear canals, but they seem to work fine for me. They are made of a really soft compound, so when they do expand to fill the ear canal, it fills everything and does not over-expand. I suggest going on Howard Leight's website and watching the video on how to insert them. I actually learned a thing or two. Overall, GREAT product.

We stayed at the Hotel New Yorker in Miami; and, because it is an older property, with poor insulation, the hotel provided us with ear plugs. Not just any ear plugs; but, the Howard Leight MAX ear plugs. I am a very light sleeper; and, wake at the slightest noise. I didn't hear any of the cars on Biscayne Boulevard, nor, did I hear the extremely loud (apparantly) neighbors up above. They work great!

These are so bad! They are so soft they won't stay in your ears (or didn't stay in mine) .. they won't even go in your ears! I contacted the seller and they never bothered to get back with me. I could careless about the fact they don't cost much, but if they don't work AND the seller stinks at service, then I prefer to let other potential customers know! :o))

These plugs have the highest NRR rating you can get. They are comfortable, and even reusable. I reuse each pair probably 5 or 6 times with no problem. I use them with a set of electronic muffs on a very active indoor shooting range which is very loud. If you shoot indoors I recommend adding a set of muffs over the top of these to get a 60+ db reduction of noise.
