Ear Plug Reviews - How To Choose The Right Ear Plugs

Choosing the right ear plugs for you can be a challenging task when there are so many types to choose from.

Wax - these are popular for swimming but can be tacky and only last for a few uses before needing to be replaced.  This is because they get clogged with dirt and hair.  May become expensive if used for years.  These make a terrible mess of your carpet.  My daughter had some stuck in her hair for a week after coming back from holiday in Majorca.  If you read some of our ear plug reviews you will see the problems.

Molded - ideal for general purpose use as they effectively block water and sound from your ears.  Comfortable as they are individually fitted. As they are made from resilient materials they last for years without needing replacement.  These come in a range of bright colours, stopping you losing them if you drop them on the sand or the side of the pool.  You can connect them on a string and tie it to your wetsuit so you don't lose them. ZenPlugs are antibacterial, unlike other types of ear plugs.

Foam - these are ok for occasional use but regular users may find their ears becoming itchy and sore.  This is because the foam can harbour dirt and bacteria and will become abrasive on the skin lining the ear.  This type aren't suitable for use in water and tend to fall out as they expand in your ears.  These are not suitable for sleeping as they expand in your ears which causes discomfort.  People often take them out in their sleep meaning they get woken up by noise.  They also protrude from the ears so dig in when rolling over.  They also are pulled from the ears when rolling over in bed.

Rubber - This type are not comfortable as they have a stiff handle which makes the plugs rigid.  The rubber ribs become contaminated and are difficult to clean. They also tear easily and come off.

Conclusion - In conclusion, molded ear plugs are the best all-round.  They are effective in all situations and remain comfortable, even in bed.  They make a good investment as they last for years.  Use the Amazon box on the right to buy yours now.
