How to Correctly Insert Single-Use Foam Earplugs


There is a plethora of different types of ear protection out there – in broad strokes, you can divide them into three categories – single-use earplugs, multi-use earplugs and earmuffs.

In order to identify what products that suit your hearing protection needs best, it is advisable to explore different options. The relative effectiveness of any specific product will vary somewhat based on the anatomy of your specific ear canal. And different environments and contexts may call for different types of protection.

The single-use foam earplugs are very widely used and we would like to stress how important it is to insert them correctly in order to obtain the desired noise-blocking effect. Please, have a look at this instructional video by leading earplug brand Howard Leight.

In terms of foam earplugs, we warmly recommend two products by Howard Leight. The MAX and the Laser Lite. This recommendation stems from having tried tons of different foam earplugs and having arrived at Howard Leight providing excellent performance.

Get the MAX and Laser Lite earplugs via our store or through Amazon below:
