Professionally molded ear plugs are far more comfortable because each is made for your ears individually. They don't expand and press on the delicate skin of your ear canals unlike foam ear plugs. They stay in much better as well because they fit like a hand in a glove. Foam tends to push itself out as it expands.

Although molded plugs cost more to buy at the outset their cost-per-use is much less than other types of plugs. This is because they last for years and thousands of uses. The cost per use can be a small fraction of a penny. Some other types of plugs like the soft-silicon varieties can be tens of pence per use as they need to be replaced frequently.
