EAR Classic Soft Earplugs
Advantages: They work to a point
Disadvantages: They let in some noise
Ah, God bless the bloke who invented these earplugs is all I can say. Married for 21 years now, I have had to suffer the ghastly unbearable din of my dear other half's nocturnal ruckas every single night of my married life. I've tried all sorts but nothing works - even bribery, but poor thing, she just can't seem to help herself. Even the little lad is waking in the middle of the night and coming into our room asking me to get his mum to stop making a noise. Short of putting a pillow over her head, I was at a complete loss as to what to do.
I invested in some great earplugs from the Internet and they are EAR Classic Soft Earplugs. I paid £7 for a large sized pack of fifty. Fifty pairs might seem like a lot at first, but when you consider these are designed for single use, then it doesn't look so impressive. Having said that though, I never chuck them away after just the one time, that's such a waste. I tend to use them several times and I have even resorted to washing them on a gentle wash inside the pillowcases and I dry them all out in the sunshine outside on the kitchen windowsill. They are fine and soon bounce back into shape once fully dried.
They are quite soft and malleable and fit nicely inside my ears. I wait a bit for them to expand and then they fill the entire ear and muffle most (I say most) of the sounds. They are good, but they are not perfect. I am finding I am getting a better night's sleep but not a great one and I am still finding I am having to get up in the night and move into the spare room or crawl in with the little lad and shut the door behind me, just so we can both get some decent shut eye.
The doctor says the problem is connected to my wife's weight. She is colossal so I don't think this is helping her breathing at all. Suggesting a diet will result in a tirade of abuse for me so unfortunately I will have to continue with the EAR Earplugs for now.
They are good overall, but don't drown out ALL loud noises.
Summary: Fairly good
