We all need earplugs. If we travel regularly or go to concerts we all know how useful they are in protecting our senses from screaming children or sustained loud noises. Earplugs are great but it’s not always easy to find the right earplugs for small ears.
If you have smaller than average ears, finding earplugs for small ears can be a challenge. Standard earplugs are just too big and do not fit correctly and are prone to fall out. Because of this, they won’t be comfortable to wear and won’t help to protect your ears from unwanted noise.
So, what makes the perfect earplug for smaller ears. Certainly, they need to be comfortable. To do this they need to be designed to fit a smaller ear canal.
Earplugs that are made from a soft material such as closed-cell soft foam, silicone or wax are all designed to be worn for long periods. The wearer can be mould them into the shape of the ear canal to provide a tight, soundproofed seal.
Another important factor is the Noise Reduction Rating (NRR). This number gives you and indication as to the amount of sound they keep from entering your ears. The higher the rating, the better they are at blocking unwanted noise.
