I do actually, one pair is supposed to be for swimming - but they are the same. I lost one of the plastic boxes though so 50p is worth just for that!

This saved my marriage...
going to buy some of these so i don't wake myself up with my own snoring.
I tried these for the first time a couple of months ago and really recommend them to anyone who suffers pain and hearing loss from flying. Before these I used to have fuzzy hearing and aches for days after flying, and landing itself would usually involve me writhing around in my seat in agony not knowing what to do. Horrible.

I bought some from Amazon and for the very first time I enjoyed looking out of the window landing, with no pain. And I could actually hear my mother-in-law when she picked me and OH up from the airport. Really impressed, wasn't expecting them to be so effective. The way home wasn't 100% pain free, but still a massive improvement and my hearing was normal.

Well worth a try.

Heat added, fab price.

YES!!!!!! Those standard ones did nothing for me except block out some sound x
Pobably asked the wrong question above: What I meant to ask is whether these are better for sound insulation than the usual airline foam earplugs ? I do not get pressure problems, but am kept awake on overnight flights by the noise.
Great price I've been meaning to get a pair for flying for ages, but they always seemed expensive for what they are.

No, though they do block out a little noise, they a primarily for people who suffer from in ear pain due to changes in cabin pressure.
For me, these make flying just about bearable. Without them, the pain is excruciating.
For noise insulation, try noise cancelling headphones.

Worth a punt at 50p.

I now use Doc's Pro Plugs when travelling on planes which I originally bought for protecting my hearing while drumming. WAY more expencive than these (I think about a tenner or so) and you're best having them fitted (as opposed to guessing your ear size), but I find them exeptional. They filter out the annoying frequencies on a plane (enging whine - babies screaming etc) but doesn't muffle the sounds around you so you can still have a normal conversation with someone.
could do with some for band practice, just stuff tissue in my ears at the moment.
ill try these

lol I've got some for drumming too, must try them on a plane!
Please don't try your drums on a plane, it's bad enough as it is (your drumming, not the plane). Now if you had a banjo.........
£3.99 in my local... I was hoping to get some pairs for shooting.. But now I have read some of the comments, perhaps these don't have very good noise reducing properties and perhaps are specifically designed for flying..

Yeah this sort are a lot better than the chunky foam ones or the tissue in your ears. Might actually slow the progression of my tinnitus.
