    I have problems with a noisy neighbor who sees no problen with having a movie theatre on the other side of our shared wall. I have gotten him to compromise and turn his subwoofer down, but I can still hear some residuals and it was preventing me from falling asleep. I tried these ear plugs and they make a huge difference. The thing about these compared to cotton balls or foam is that these have a stickiness to them and when properly used they form a seal around your ear and really block most sounds. There are some frequencies you will still hear (although lighter) but these are a must for someone who needs help falling asleep in a noisy place. I guess the only con is that these are temporary - once they lose their stickiness (maybe 5 days or so depending on how much you wore them) you need to get a new pair. Another thing is that I find them uncomfortable if I lay on my side, so I normally start the night out laying on my back with these in my ears for a peaceful night's rest!

    These earplugs block out the background sounds well and are more comfortable than those "plug-in" ones. However, they can't do much to my husband's snoring. Even though they do reduce my husband's snoring sound, I can still hear it clearly. He snores like 5 bulldozers all together right next to me at night, and I guess that's why this thing doesn't work. I would continue purchasing these, though. It's better than having nothing, anyway.

    Waste of $

    Comments about Mack's Pillow Soft Silicone Earplugs, Clear, Value Pack, 6 pr:

    I tried a pair of foam ear plugs before I purchased these and those failed, fell out, and blocked nothing. I decided to purchase these based on all the great reviews and found them really ineffective and uncomfortable. While the directions say to use one entire blob of silicone in each ear and never to cut them in half, they are way too huge and would not fit unless I cut them into two halves. I then rolled them and pressed over my ear canal and tried to flatten. They did not form a seal and did not block out anything. I also couldn't imagine sleeping with them and having that sticky substance attract lint, hair and everything else into my ear. Really a bad buy for me.

      Comments about Mack's Pillow Soft Silicone Earplugs, Clear, Value Pack, 6 pr:

      I have been using this product for probably 3 decades, ever since I got my first job working an overnight shift in broadcasting. They are an incredibly good product that effectively block most noise.

      What I have learned is, carefully tie my hair back so they don't get caught up in my hair while I sleep and replace them in the plastic case as soon as I wake up. They last much longer that way.

      Sometimes I just use a plug in my left ear because I sleep on my right side. That works for me.

      Great product. I wouldn't be without it.

            I am a very light sleeper and use Mack's ear plugs every night. They mold to your ear to keep noise out. I have very small ear canal openings and am unable to use the ear plugs you insert into your ear canal. I should buy stock in the company, as I have recommended these to many of my friends and family, who also love them.

            WORTHLESS

            Comments about Mack's Pillow Soft Silicone Earplugs, Clear, Value Pack, 6 pr:

            These are completely worthless to me. The silicone sticks to my fingers. I have to repeatedly push them against my ear canal so they can stay. They are not flush in any way. Therefore they do not block noise. And they are very uncomfortable.

              Comments about Mack's Pillow Soft Silicone Earplugs, Clear, Value Pack, 6 pr:

              I've tried other ear plugs but none have worked as great as these. I live in a residential area, which abuts offices. It seems there is always some night time project going on in the parking lot there...vacuuming, tree trimming and chipping, gardening, re-surfacing, generators, which are all very noisy activities. I've had much trouble sleeping through these noises over the years but not since I've used Mack's ear plugs.

              I change mine roughly weekly (I swim 4 days a week) - but they are very effective. In decades of daily swimming, I have never had swim ear and without these and the use of a product called Swim Ear I would have. They keep the water out.

              Most Comfortable I've Found

              Comments about Mack's Pillow Soft Silicone Earplugs, Clear, Value Pack, 6 pr:

              I sleep with a VERY loud snorer and I've tried all kinds of earplugs - foam, wax, and now silicone. Most of them hurt my ears while sleeping and woke me up w/discomfort. These silicone plugs are the best! Soft and comfy, they mold to your ear and are flat, unlike the foam plugs that stick out and are hard to lie on. I'd say they block the bulk of the noise, particularly when "fresh." They do get dirty and lose their stickiness after 4 or 5 uses, so you need to use a new pair. A tip for those who, like me, have small ears. Take 1 plug and separate into 2 equal pieces. They then fit much more comfortably and snugly AND you get double the usage from a pack.
