Mack’s having been making earplugs for a long time. Over 50 years in fact. So they know what they are doing! Mack’s Ultra Soft Foam Earplugs are one of their best selling lines, so we had high expectations when we decided to review these earplugs for the first time.
Mack’s Ultra Soft Earplugs Review
These soft-foam earplugs are skin-coloured in appearance and very soft. They are made in a material which Mack’s call “Comfy Cush Comfort Foam”. This is a low-pressure material that is designed to make the earplugs comfortable to wear in the ear.
They are perfect earplugs for sleeping and we tried them overnight to see how they fared. Important considerations here were noise reduction and comfort of fit.
Inserting The Earplugs
Putting the earplugs into your ears is easy and quick. On my first attempt, compressing the earplug took seconds. All that was needed was a squash and and few rolls of the earplug between my fingers. I soon had a thin, compressed earplug which I could then inert into my ear canal. All I had to do then was hold it for a few seconds as the foam moved back into position and locked itself into position. Once inserted, the earplug felt secure, with a comfortable fit.
The first thing we noticed when wearing these earplugs is how good they are at blocking out sound. They have a Noise Reduction Rating (NRR) of 32 decibels, which is high compared to many other competing earplugs. Certainly, they did seem to block out a lot of exterior noise when I put my head down on the pillow.
Earplug Length & Diameter
The earplug is 23mmm long, tip-t-tip. I would say that this is average. As an adult male, I did feel that I had to push the earplug into my ear canal to get it to fit correctly. But, this was not uncomfortable at all.
For those with smaller ear canals, they may want to consider Mack’s Slimfit Earplugs. These are similar in length to normal earplugs but they have a smaller diameter, making the ideal for some ladies and those with smaller ear canals.

In Conclusion – Recommended!
We liked these earplugs a lot. They are soft and comfortable to wear. They block out sound well and stay in the ear whilst sleeping. Trust me, I am a restless sleeper and these stayed in okay!
We recommend these earplugs for anybody who is looking for a great sleeping earplug. However, they can also be used in other situations, such as for study, work, travel, relaxation and loud events
The skin-coloured foam is great too as the colour is inconspicuous. This makes them a better choice to wear in public than some of the brighter coloured alternatives.
