They will have, been in two of my locals so will be national.

yeah there good had them for years

I'd recommend BioEars, they're expensive at about £5 for 3 pairs but they last for months, made from silicon gel they are far better than foam plugs at keeping out noise. I tried loads of different foam and gel plugs but these are the best and unlike many of the others - they do the job!

@designaw please can you explain why they're better than foam plugs? I'm currently using foam plugs but find they're quite uncomfortable to sleep in (I find myself waking up to take them out). The other issue is that I have small ears so finding something suitable is sometimes tricky.

How about these? They're cheap and they work a treat, especially for people with small ears like me.

Ty for recommendation

I tried those silicon ones and didn't like the feeling of them in my ears, felt kind of sticky. However, they did do a better job of blocking noise. I've ended up cutting the end off the foam ones to make them a little smaller - but not too small so as you end up losing them!

There is some made out of wax you can get from the chemist that work.

Foam is a waste of time. (Won't work unless you use enough to make into an anechoic chamber. That might be a solution to noisy neighbours but they are quite weird to be in)

Or you can get some made from an Audiologist. (Similar type of process to a dentist making you a proper fitted gum shield).

Depends how much of a problem it is. If it happens constantly get the Audiologist ones.

For the fisherman, they make great bodies for popper flies that will catch chub, trout, pike and any number of exotic species.
They can also be used as buoyant heads for soft plastic works to keep the lure on the surface and out of the seaweed.

Keep them away from cats , they love taking them away and hiding them.

I find laser lite ear plus the best! and comfortable to wear at night

small ears?

wtf

er the ones at work (heavy engineering) are foam

Laser lite are fantastic... I've tried several and found ll the best to sleep in!

The advantage I find with BioEars is that they mould to the shape of your ear and ear canal and form a seal that is far more effective at blocking out noise, they feel like a seal, rather than a foreign object in your ear like some foam plugs, though naturally this is only my experience - though be aware, not all silicon plugs are the same! I bought some cheap silicon plugs from Savers to try, they were very hard and had fallen out by the morning, I tried them a few times with no improvement, so went back to BioEars. They are more expensive but if something cheaper doesn't work as well, it is a false economy!

I agree with a lot that's been said, foam one's are pretty useless, don't form to shape and keep popping out, I use the wax one's, similar to silicone, Boots Muffles, 5 pairs for about £3, says use once, but I use them for weeks!

MOLDEX spark plugs are the best I've found. I get 100 plugs on eBay for about £7. Nice foam ear plugs with a good comfortable seal. 35dB attenuation from what I remember. You can buy them in various motorbike shops too. I've not slept without earplugs for 4 years at least and have proper insomnia which I take medication for. I'd be even worse without these earplugs!! Lol

Just checked the signal cancelling rating of BIOEARS and it's only 22dB compared to moldex spark plugs at 35dB attenuation (SNR). I'll stick with moldex thanks
