IS THERE A WRONG AND RIGHT WAY TO INSERT EAR PLUGS?
I can not stress enough the importance of properly inserted ear plug.
If foam earplugs are inserted only half way you are receiving only half of the benefit and this may be a good reason. Often people tell us they have not had success with noise blocking in the past with other brands…and bad fitting. I personally count 5-10 seconds when”anchoring” a foam earplug into the ear canal to make sure the expansion of the foam earplug is securely in place inside the canal.
After rolling the foam earplug and inserting it inside the ear canal, use your finger to keep the earplug in place so it expands completely inside of the canal.
