EAR Classic Soft Earplugs
Advantages: Very affordable, disposable for hygiene reasons, simple to apply.
Disadvantages: Usually fall out during the night.
I rarely have a good nights sleep. This is mainly due to not being tired enough to rest, I am always on the go but never tired. I know it isn't healthy to get little sleep, but I have tried a number of things without success. I have tried sleeping tablets with a modicum of success. Earplugs are the only other measure I have taken to try to combat sleep deprivation.
The EAR Classic Soft Earplugs are available from the www.Amazon.co.uk website. I paid around £8 for 50 individually packaged pairs. As they are single use it is important to remember they need to be disposed off after use, so 50 pairs isn't really a great deal when you think about it. I think the price is also reasonable considering I am getting 50 nights of peaceful sleep.
As the earplugs are made from squidgy foam it does seem possibly you could use them more than once, but I wouldn't bother as they can get quite mucky and coated in wax, so for hygiene reasons alone I would discourage this. The foam material is yellow and it has a memory foam type construction. I simply roll the foam earplugs between two fingers and then place them in my ears one by one. As they expand into their original shape they create a seal to block the external sound out and fit comfortably in my ears. Not all sound is eliminated, but I would probably feel uneasy with total noise isolation. What if a fire alarm goes off? What about your alarm clock?!
I think the sound reduction is reasonable and overall I have no complaints on quality, price, or effectiveness. The results meant that I can manage to sleep better with them in. The only niggle for me is that occassionally they can fall out during my sleep. I usually wake up having put them in my ears to find at least one of them has found its way out. If they fitted more securely then I would have to award full marks, but for this slight letdown I am still happy to give 4 stars.
Summary: Well designed product that will keep most people happy that are light sleepers.
