EAR Classic Soft Earplugs
Advantages: a good nights sleep
Disadvantages: you may sleep in late
I live in a rural area and it is pretty quiet at night apart from the odd dog barking or a sheep making a baa noise it's quite peaceful and I sleep good but my eldest daughter lives in London and when I go to visit her I find it really hard to sleep with the noise of the traffic and the city background noise seems to come alive at night. So, when I go to visit her I pack my ear plugs.
These classic soft ear plugs can be bought from the chemist in packs of 250 and from from Amazon and will cost you £25 which is not bad considering you get lots of use out of the pack. I use the same ones more than once so the pack does last a long time. Up to three times before I throw them away.
They have to be kept seperate from each other when you take them out as you cannot swap them around in your ears, it isn't hygenic. If you use one in the right ear it has to go back in the right ear the night after not the left, otherwise you risk ear infections.
The ear plugs are made of a foam like substance which shrinks really quickly when you squeeze it, then it opens up again when you release it. The idea is to roll the ear plug in your finger until it's small enough to fit in your ear, then give it a minute to unfold to the shape of your ear and this then blocks out the sound. Repeat this action for the other ear and you will be able to hear ...... hardly anything, everything is very muffled. they work a treat.
Sometimes you can hear your pulse or blood pressure in your ears when you first put them in and they do take a few minutes to get used to as you can feel the ear is blocked up with them, but you soon get used to the feeling of them.
As for working well, I always get a good nights sleep when I'm away from home and using these. they stop all the outside noise getting to me and I can relax and sleep deeply.
I would recommend them if you have trouble light sleeping or are with a partner that snores as they really do muffle the noise, the only thing is you many sleep in if you can't hear your alarm clock, but so far I've been alright with this as I use my mobile phone and put it under my pillow on vibrate so I can feel it going off.
If you haven't tried these then they are worth thhinking about, although they are not recommended for small children to use and you can't share a pair with anyone each pair has to be used individually and throw away when they get dirty.
Summary: cheap and cheerful
