I'm a very light sleeper and have tried lots of earplugs. I am commenting on the Hearos "Extreme" and not other Hearos ear plugs.

They are highly effective but they have a certain way of being inserted. 1) Roll the smaller end that goes into your ear between your fingers so it gets thinner. 2) Wet the end either with saliva or with water. (This is needed if your ear canal is not straight. It is difficult to push a piece of foam into a curved canal. If it's wet, it slides right in.) 3) Insert into your ear. All the way till it touches your ear drum will provide the best sound occlusion. The father away from the ear drum the less it occludes, so you can decide how much you want.

With it all the way to the ear drum I can't hear anything outside of the perimeter of my bed, but I can still hear my phone and alarm clock on my night stand.

I use a single pair until they don't roll down thinner easily. Eventually the foam just doesn't work as well. Sometimes my ear will itch but this is just from a buildup of ear wax during the night and I take it out and scratch or it goes away. It's not a serious problem. These have improved my sleep enormously!!!

HEAROS NRR 33 used to be the best earplugs hands-down, but their so-called "New and Improved EZ-Grip Design" version appears to be made of an inferior, squishy material that doesn't offer nearly the same level of protection. They're rough and full of divots and holes.

      Better than old style

      By 

      from San Diego

      Comments about Hearos Ear Plugs - Xtreme Protection Series, 14 pr:

      Yes, this domed style is different than the older "edged" kind. I didn't like the non-domed ones because the edge would cause pain after a week where it rubs the ear (I use new plugs every other day).

      I find that the blue ones are a bit fatter and firmer than the flesh-colored ones. They actually keep out way more noise (almost pure silence) than the fleshy ones, but the fleshy ones are more comfortable over several weeks of use so I only where the blue ones when I want next to silence.

      I does help to first wet the inner opening of your ear canal with your whetted small finger tip so that the plug slides in much easier and deeper. Keeps things quieter the deeper in they go.

      My husband and I both use a C-pap and sometimes he still snores or his mask will leak, and it is too noisy for me. The plugs drown that all out.

            I used the previous version daily for many years. The formulation was recently changed to where the ear plugs are longer now and of a different material density. The new version just isn't comfortable and doesn't work. I hope the previous version comes back since I've found nothing else on the market to replace them yet.

                I have been using this product consistently for 3+ years. The old ones worked very well. But this latest one received from Drugstore.com is completely different - they have different shape and appear to be made of different material. The new one is too soft & I just couldn't insert it into my ear canal. huge disappointment. now I need to look for a new brand!

                  New maker? They are not shaped the same and do not provide even close to the protection as they once did. No longer worth the money.

                          My husband has a chronic problem with snoring, which results in me not being able to sleep, or getting woken up often. These ear plugs effectively block most of the sound, enough for me to sleep. Only downside is that they need replaced fairly often to effectively block the sounds.

                          Hearos Ear Plugs - Xtreme Protection Series

                           – HEAROS Ear Plugs – Xtreme Protection Series have an NRR, Noise Reduction Rating, that is one of the highest available on the market. NRR stands for "Noise Reduction Rating." HEAROS can help you silence your partner's snoring so you can get a restful night of sleep. You can also use the plugs to hush the din in the dorm so you can study, or keep the surf out of your ears during a day of water sports. HEAROS Ear Plugs are the perfect accessory while you're at the shooting range, race track, or on stage performing with your band.

                          Customize Your Fit



                          The HEAROS foam is soft and can be compressed. Simply roll the ear plug between your fingers before inserting it as a thin cylinder into your ear canal. You don't have to worry about irritation from an ear plug that expands too rapidly, or scratching from the rough exterior of the ear plug. The foam will gradually expand, giving you a snug fit that feels silky smooth against your skin. The HEAROS ear plugs stay put, whether you're sleeping, swimming, or enjoying high-decibel entertainment.

                          A Brand Dedicated to Quality



                          How did HEAROS become one of America's top-selling foam ear plugs? Doug Pick, the company's founder, is committed to providing consumers with an exceptional value - a high-quality and comfortable product that significantly reduces noise, all for an affordable price.
