There are several different types of self moulded earplugs available. They have the advantages that they are very comfortable and brilliantly effective at keeping water and sound out of your ears. This is because the material molds to your ears and keeps it's shape. This means it doesn't expand and press in your ear canal.
ZenPlugs self moulded earplugs have several advantages over other varieties. They can be remolded many times. This means that if you aren't happy with the fit the first time you can remake them as often as you need. They contain Steritouch. This is an amazing antibacterial which kills all the germs which cause ear infections. Other moulded earplugs do not have this.
The thermoplastic we use is not messy, unlike the two-part silicon mix used by other moulded ear plug companies. They can leave residue on the hands and take some time to mix. Our plugs soften in hot water then can be molded directly in the ears in a one-stage process which is so good we decided to patent it. No-one else is using a similar process.
ZenPlugs are great for sleeping because they don't protrude. This makes them comfortable even when lying on your side in bed. This is in stark contrast to foam plugs. These push themselves from your ears and stick out. They drag on the pillow when you turn in bed. This can pull them out, waking you up. Because they stick out they get pushed into your ear when lying on your side with your ear on the pillow.
ZenPlugs are the only plugs designed not to protrude in this way.
Our plugs are also waterproof, making them ideal for swimming. It is important to wear ear plugs in the water if you swim regularly. Without them you are at risk of swimmer's ear. This is infection caused by water, bacteria and irritants contacting the skin.
