  • Disposable or reusable ear plugs

    With the amount of earplugs to choose form it can be quite off putting which ones are the best, you are bombarded with lots of questions. Are disposable or reusable earplugs better for me? Do I need custom fit earplugs or mouldable or pre-mouldable? Well your questions are answered.

    Are disposable or reusable earplugs better for me?

    It all depends on your preferences are. If you want to have one pair of earplugs that you have to clean for hygiene reasons then reusable earplugs are the best choice for you. However, if you are a bit clumsy and tend to lose things or you don’t like the fuss of having to constantly clean your earplugs then disposable is the right choice for you.  A great time and money saver when it comes to disposable earplugs is to bulk buy them. This way you will be not have to be constantly buying them to protect your ears at all times.

    What is the difference between disposable and reusable?

    Apart from stating the obvious, but I’m going to anyway; disposable earplugs are designed to be thrown away after a single use and reusable earplugs are designed to be use time and time again, the main difference is the material they are manufactured in. Disposable earplugs are generally manufactured using foam, whereas reusable earplugs are normally made from silicone. Most reusable earplugs use a non-allergenic soft medical grade silicone, with a majority of them being waterproof, suitable for swimming and water sports.

    Do I need custom fit earplugs or mouldable or pre-mouldable?

    Custom fit earplugs are designed to fit every shape of ear and generate an extraordinary level of protection. There are the more expensive type of earplug, but tend to last longer than traditional earplugs making them cost effective. Mouldable earplugs are designed to mould to the shape of your ear whereas pre-mould earplugs are already moulded to a certain shape and size, which can be ideally suitable for children. These earplugs tend to last around 4 years.

    What should I be looking for in earplugs?

    What you look for in an earplug depends on what uses you going to get out of it. What do you need the earplugs for? Is it for a gig/concert or for swimming? However the main factor you should look for in earplugs is the NRR (noise reduction rating).  Depending on the level of noise you want to block or reduce, depends on the NRR level you need.

  • The Many Uses of Foam Earplugs

    Potentially THE most comfortable earplugs, foam earplugs are highly versatile and are an important addition to your home safety kit or workplace safety standard closet. Beyond protecting your hearing, foam earplugs just seem to make life a bit more comfortable.

    I can’t think of a place where comfort is more imperative than in the bedroom. And, sleep is SOOO important to your health. Obviously, sleep deprivation can cause fatigue, sluggishness, weakness and fuzzy thinking, but in addition, it has long-term affects such as premature aging! Yikes! Sleeping ear plugs can block those annoying nighttime noises whether that’s a partner snoring or grinding their teeth or the neighbour’s yappy poodle they forgot to let in for the night.

  • Lend Me Your Ear (Just Not Literally!)

    I thought I’d switch things up a bit and share my views on a couple of recent articles in The Guardian. Apparently, Van Gogh may not have chopped off his own ear. There’s speculation that his former friend and French Artist Paul Gauguin may have sliced off Van Gogh’s ear with a fencing blade during an argument. Does his lack of self-mutilation tendencies somehow make Van Gogh less of an artist? (Well, an “ear-less” I suppose!). Continue reading
