Moulded ear plugs are much better than standard ear plugs in many ways. They are far more comfortable and effective at blocking water and noise than standard ear plugs. Lifespan is also much longer.
ZenPlugs are the best moulded earplugs you can buy. There are several reasons for this. They have all the advantages of normal ear plugs and professionally molded ear plugs but cost far less. This is because you can make them yourself at home in a few minutes making it far less expensive than visiting the audiologist. They are also much quicker as you don't need to make several trips to the clinic.
Additionally they are also antibacterial. This is unlike most other varieties of ear plugs which often harbour bacteria. Repeatedly wearing dirty ear plugs can result in sore and itchy ears. This can be prevented by wearing antibacterial ear plugs. ZenPlugs can be rinsed under the tap and wiped clean. This is not like many other types such as foam and wax varieties which need to be thrown away and replaced.
ZenPlugs are moulded to each ear, one at a time. This means that they are very comfortable and stay in. Because they don't fall out they are well suited to swimming, surfing and other physical activities. Some people find that their normal ear plugs come out when they are asleep in bed at night. It might be that they protrude and are getting caught on the pillow. It is often the case, however, that plugs are feeling sore during the night and people are taking them out in their sleep.
In summary, ZenPlugs are the best molded ear plugs you can buy. This is because they are comfortable, effective, antibacterial and stay in your ears. They cost far less than other molded ear plugs and can be made quickly at home.
How To Choose The Best Ear Plugs For Sleeping
It is difficult knowing which earplugs to choose for sleeping. This is because of the fact there are so many types and brands to choose from. How are you to know which are the best?
In our opinion moulded earplugs are the best sleeping variety. This is for several reasons. The main reason is comfort; some types are not comfortable at all, for example foam types. These tend to expand outwards in your ear canal, pressing hard on the delicate skin lining.
This can lead to such severe discomfort that you may wake up during the night. Alternatively you may remove the plugs in your sleep. This can potentially expose you to the noise you were intending to block and also leading to wakening.
Moulded plugs are specifically shaped to each canal, individually making them contour to each bump and lump of your body. This leads to them being incredibly comfortable as there are no localised pressure areas.
This custom fit also leads to exceptionally good noise attenuation properties. This means that they will block sound exceptionally well and give you an excellent night's sleep.
ZenPlugs moulded earplugs are great as they cost far less than having your moulds manufactured by the local audiology clinic. The antibacterial agent dramatically reduces the risk of contamination causing infections. They are also hygienic as they are wipe clean, nonporous and last for years.
Wax, soft silicon and rubber flanged varieties are not suitable for this purpose as they are uncomfortable or sticky. The wax and soft silicon types will get stuck to the bed clothes and can get stuck in your hair. These are more suitable for swimming rather than sleeping. Rubber flanged ones tend to have a hard handle protruding which would cause the plug to dig in hard if you were to go onto your side during the night. Moulded brands are definitely the best type to choose.
