All my 3 family members have the problem of the unbearable piercing pain during the flight. The "Earplanes" greatly relief the pain. I would not dare to fly without "Earplanes" in hand. I recently recommended this product to my brother's family who has the similar problem. It worked for them, too!

I am fine with the design. However, the length is a bit too long. Whenever I turned my head to the side to rest during the flight, it's kind of pressing on it and caused some discomfort. The size is also a bit too big, especially for those who have smaller ear canals.

Anyway, these are just minor problems and won't stop me from using this product at all. I strongly recommend this excellent product to those who have similar problems like me.

According to the product instruction; it recommends that this product to be used for one return trip only to ensure the best effect. I followed it as I was afraid that I would experience the unbearable pain if I don't follow. But I have been re-using it nowadays. Maybe I have been flying quite frequently recently and my ears have adapted to the pressure. But I would suggest to those who don't fly frequently; "Don't try your luck!" You would not want to save the insignificant amount of money and take the risk to have your ears suffered.

Bon Voyager!!

My ears often don't 'pop' on their own, leaving me with unequalized pressure and earaches for days after a flight. I recently tried these on a transatlantic roundtrip, and they worked great for equalizing pressure. However, the pain from putting them in and keeping them in was excruciating. Certainly not gentle; my ears hurt for days from the 'soft' silicon rubbing and pressing on them. Still, it was better than being in pain and _not_ being able to hear.

          Comments about EarPlanes Earplugs, Flight Ear Protection, 3 pr:

          Each leg of a trip, you need a pair. So with US domestic flights so often with at least 1 stop-over, I usually need 4 pairs for round-trips. Do not try to reuse, trip after trip. The last couple of years, every package has had a bonus third pair. I do not think there is any shelf life at all - just keep them in a warm clean place. They come in a convenient plastic small case. I definitely need them on ascent and descent, but I do not use them once we have levelled off. Would not travel with out them. You will save a bundle over any local drug-store.

              Every flight landing produced severe ear pain. Used these for the first time and how wonderful! Pain-free landing for first time in over 30 years of flying. Be sure to insert 30 minutes before as directed.

                  Just used these for the first time on a flight to/from the Hawaiian islands with no ear pain or pressure whatsoever. Do read the directions. Also used them at night to muffle to the sound of the island roosters. Highly recommended.

                      These work very well during long flights to prevent buildup of uncomfortable pressure in the ears. I have recommended them to many friends and relatives. One thing to be aware of, the adult size is very large and you might want to consider the so-called children's size which is just a slightly smaller version more comfortable.

                        Using EarPlanes in combination with nasal decongestant (1 hour prior to take-off) has solved the pain of flying for my husband. No more pain during descent, and no more plugged ears for next several days. Won't fly without them.

                            Great for relieving air pressure in ears when in flight so ears don't ache when ascending or decending.

                              I use them on every flight and when we travel in our RV over high mountain passes. They help relieve the pain in my ears. I usually wear them during the whole flight because sometimes I don't know when the plane has begun to descend. So they can get somewhat uncomfortable.

                              I've been using this product for several years after a flight some time ago left me in tears. The pain was horrific and I knew we were descending about 30 minutes before the pilot announced it. I was so thankful when I found these. You use a pair for one round-trip and then discard them. You place them into your ear canal by gently turning them as you insert them. I find them to be comfortable, but that doesn't mean it is not noticeable. I defintely feel like I have something in each ear. It reduces noise a bit, but does not eliminate cabin noise, so you can still hear those around you. Most importantely, it relieves the pressure in my ears. All of the home remedies--yawning, chewing gum, etc. do nothing for me, but this does. If you suffer in pain every time you fly, I would urge you to try this product.
