These soft disposable polyurethane plugs provide excellent comfort. The tapered shape is designed to adjust to most ear canals and reduce pressure with a special embossed 'X', whilst the smooth surface provides better hygiene. Although disposable they have exceptionally high levels of noise attenuation (typically 33dB @ 1,000Hz). Made of foam which, when compressed, slowly reverts back to the original shape filling the ear for better effective hearing protection. They are made of non-allergenic, non-irritating foam for a high level of comfort and good protection. Supplied in packs of 5 pairs.

For my shaped ears - as good as useless!These ear plugs are for my ear canals useless. They fall out however tightly I screw them up before pushing them in my ears. The type of ear plug I have found immensely effective are made of mould-able wax which conforms to the profile of my outer ear canal, stays in, and unlike foam the wax deadens the sound. They are sold under the brand name QUIES. I carry these in my travel bag and find especially useful in aircraft and noisy hotels.They do cost a lot more than foam plugs but are reusable - up to a point. In a workshop use a good sound defender.
