EarPlanes Earplugs, Flight Ear Protection– The ear discomfort, clogging and popping that can occur while flying may be alleviated with EarPlanes Earplugs, Flight Ear Protection. Easy to use, latex-free, hypoallergenic and drug-free, these comfortable earplugs use an advanced design to help regulate the air pressure differential in the ear canals and inner ears. Developed by Cirrus Healthcare Products in conjunction with the House Ear Institute in Los Angles, a leader in hearing research and ear surgery, these earplugs have been tested by U.S. Navy aviators and are recommended by some doctors. They are often used by air passengers and flight attendants alike and are backed by the Good Housekeeping Seal.
How They Work
In flight, the cabins of commercial airliners are pressurized to provide air and warmth to passengers. Unfortunately, the inner ear does not always adjust to the pressure change rapidly enough, which can cause discomfort. The EarPlanes Earplugs consist of a silicone section with four rings to provide an airtight fit. There is also a CeramX™ element that acts as a controlled porosity filter to help regulate airflow. They also help to suppress noise, especially the high frequencies generated by aircraft engines, while still allowing the wearer to hear announcements and use headphones. EarPlanes may also be useful for drivers in mountainous areas and for roller-coaster riders.
Easy to Use
To allow the inner ears to gradually adjust to changing air pressure, put the EarPlanes into place one hour before landing and keep them in until after exiting the plane. People who are particularly sensitive to pressure changes, or who are suffering with a cold, allergy symptoms or a sinus condition may want to put the earplugs in before boarding the plane, leaving them in until after the aircraft has reached its maximum cruising altitude. A pair of EarPlanes should not be used for more than two flights, since pollen, airborne bacteria and dust may clog the ceramic filter and reduce their effectiveness.
