I'm very sensitive to noise, and living in a second-floor important with neighbors above me, below me and on two sides of my place, I need these. My housemate's TV is right up against the other side of my bedroom wall, so I'm hit with that at night, too. I could not live without these and wish I'd had them years earlier than I did. I simply put them in and within a minute, virtually all noise is drowned out. Obviously, it's not something you could wear if you have a baby or small child, but I don't, so I want to sleep in utter silence. Bless the person who invented these, they help me get to sleep so easily. I would also wear these to very loud rock concerts, to avoid ringing ears the next day.

Plugs go in easily, but for me, they seem to be too large. As the foam expands, they extend well past the outside of the ear canal. In addition, the foam doesn't seem to be dense enough to stop the sounds, i.e. snoring, power equipment, etc. I've had a couple other brands that worked much better. Best I've found to date is AEARO Company E.A.R Classic.

    I received a free sample of these a few years ago and have been using them since. It blocks out the noise of loud snoring 95 percent.

      I use these ear plugs to help me sleep when my cat or neighbors are keeping me awake at night. They are comfortable to sleep with and very effective, as I can't hear anything once the plugs have expanded in my ears. Great product.

              I was skeptical that these earplugs would really work, even after reading the positive feedback from other users. But, I decided to give them a try and they really do work!

              They were comfortable towear, easy to put in my ears and I was able to sleep through the night without being woken up by my husband's very heavy snoring.

              I plan to take them with me on my trip to Europe and plan to use them on the plane.

              I would higly recommend this product!

                I was apprehensive at first use because the ear plugs were so soft and comfortable. They were also very easy to insert into my very sensitive ears. I use ear plugs every night because my husband is a heavy snorer. These ear plugs completely deadend all sound coming from him in the night and are so effective I don't even hear the alarm clock in the morning and he has to shake me to waken me. My sleep has been straight thru the night since using these ear plugs.

                  I have searched for over two years to find ear plugs that really do what they promise. My husband snores like a freight train (actually a freight train is quieter!) and so does my dog who sleeps with us. These ear plugs really DO work.

                  I have attempted to sleep next to an extremely loud snorer for years and in that time have tried out many different brands of ear plugs. I read all the reviews and took into account the NNR and went with the Hearos for my next experiment. I must say these are the best I've found so far. They are indeed soft, which is important to me because I've discovered that the opening to my ear canal is pretty sensitive. If you follow the instructions and pull up on the ear while inserting the rolled up ear plug it does go in easier and blocks more sound. I also find that these don't fall out in the middle of night because of this method.

                  My only complaint is that they only last a few nights at most and then they aren't as firm and don't work as well. I'm assuming this is because it is absorbing the natural oils from our skin which compromises the composition of the foam. I dislike that because I have to spend more money to get more and they are full of chemicals which are just going to sit in the landfill for the next thousand years or so.

                  I will continue to use these because they work in blocking out the noise factory in the bed beside me and I can get some decent sleep.
