I've used silicon earplugs before and they all give me ear aches because they don't mold well into the shape of the ear and instead they are quite rigid. I like these because they just mold into the shape of your ear. Its quite ticklish at first because you can hear the ear plugs expanding in your ear, but its fine within a minute or less. They are quite comfortable to sleep with because it doesn't get pushed further into your ear (I've found that silicon ones, because they are rigid, can do this). I plan on using them in exam/study situations as well. They are reusable, and can be cleaned. 10 pairs is heaps I reckon, and justifies the price point. It beats having to keep having to buy them so frequently. I do find that when you remove them with nails or push them in with your nails, the nail indent stays for a while. Im not sure if this damages it, but I would recommend being a little conscious about using your fingers instead of your nails.
For a decade now I have always been living and sleeping in the suburbs, where at night only crickets, birds and a few cars here and there are around. At first bats were starting to approach our suburb, which is why I originally bought these earplugs, because they would always wake me up in the middle of the night. Now I have made the move the city, my god having these handy on day one was an unexpected convenience, as I cannot afford to close my window since ventilation isn't the best indoors. I reordered another packet to make sure I never run out of them while I adjust to the noisy urban environment at nights.
So here is why I rated it 4 stars. The foam on about 30% of the earplugs don't stay pressed for long enough, if at all to fit in the ear. And the sizes of these earplugs differ far too much for my liking. So just some simple quality control problems, otherwise would like to thank deep sleeps for helping me preserve my sleep in noisy environments.
I’ve tried many, many earplugs and I’ve never felt compelled to review them...until now. These are the most amazing earplugs EVER! I’ve slept with earplugs for nearly 20 years and before these Deep Sleeps, even with earplugs and two pillows over my head, I could still hear the gardeners with their leaf blowers outside my building every week. Ever since I started using the Deep Sleeps, I don’t hear the leaf blowers at all! It’s the most amazing thing! I actually get good sleep!!! I don’t think I’ll ever buy another brand of earplug again. They are super comfy too.
It does take a little time to get used to your surroundings when the ear plugs are in but the snoring noise is all but gone-Awesome! The ear plugs mould perfectly into the ear canal and are made of extremely soft material so no pain or discomfort whatsoever. They do not fall out during the night, they need to be physically removed which is easy and painless, all I can say is this is a great product and worked better than expected as we have used a number of snoring products for the snorer which were pretty much useless!
My partner snores really loudly, and it doesn't help that my house is in a really quiet suburb. I haven't been able to sleep throughout the night unless I slept in another room. I bought this together with a white noise machine, thinking I would have to use both, but I have not used the white noise machine at all! This has been amazing! It blocks out most noise and it's not uncomfortable to sleep in at at. Love it! I'll buy it again.
