Earplugs for Sleeping
Did you know that over one-quarter of the population have difficulty either getting to sleep or staying asleep?
That is more than 1 in 4 people who lay in bed at night tossing and turning!
Some of the Biggest causes of Sleep Deprivation:
- SNORING – Partners
- NIGHT SHIFT Workers – People who work nightshift & need to sleep through the day when most other people are awake,
- TRAFFIC – Busy and Loud Traffic
- NEIGHBOURS – Noisy Neighbours and or their Pets.
How Does Sleep Deprivation Affect Us?
Sadly, lack of sleep invariably leads to many health problems both mentally and physically.
Little or broken sleep can significantly reduce your alertness. When we are tired we make errors in judgments which can easily result in harm, be it at home, in the car or at the workplace.
It is no surprise that depriving the body of much needed rest leads to a poorer quality of life.
Sleep Deprivation can lead to:
- Weight Gain
- Serious Health Problems
- Lack Of Sex Drive
- Memory Loss
- Impairs alertness, concentration, & problem solving
How Can Sleep Soft Earplugs Help?
Apart from helping to alleviate all of the above mentioned problems…
Alpine Sleep Soft reusable ear plugs are the perfect alternative to foam and silicone earplugs for sleeping.
The patented open duct filters on these earplugs reduce ambient sounds such as noisy neighbours and traffic but still allow you to hear high frequency noises like your baby crying in the middle of the night, or the front doorbell.
When inserted into the ear canal the dual-flange silicone Alpine Thermo Shape (ATS™) material softens as it warms and adapts to the shape of your ear duct. This makes Sleep Soft + Ear Plugs extremely comfortable to wear for long periods of time.
Many of our customers favour the Sleep Soft as the BEST earplugs for sleeping for these very reasons!

Tired of not getting a good night sleep?
After an intensive but satisfying day, nothing is nicer than crawling into bed, leaving everything behind you and enjoying an undisturbed night’s rest. Just wonderful, right? Unfortunately, this is not the case for everyone.
Is Noise Stopping You From Sleeping?
Noisy neighbours or a snoring partner are two of the top three most annoying noises that keep millions of people around the globe awake every night.
People don’t just have difficulty sleeping in their own bed at home, but also whilst travelling for business or pleasure when staying away at hotels or on campsites, etc.
Trouble Falling Asleep?
Alarmingly, approximately 20% of the population have difficulty falling asleep. That’s one in five people who lay awake at night tossing and turning. After just one night of restless sleep, it doesn’t have too much impact on our body. You might be a bit sleepy the next day and feel a little lethargic. If broken sleep is a regular occurrence for you, it might be worth a visit to your doctor.
Proper sleep promotes good health. Our body needs this time to rest and repair. If we don’t get enough we become irritable, more tired as the day goes on and lose concentration. We are more likely to make mistakes in all that we do. Our brain can become footy and we are daintily less alert.
How Much Sound Do Sleepsoft Earplugs Block?
Alpine SleepSoft earplugs have an average damping (SNR) of 25 dB. This means that disturbing environmental noises are muffled. However, you will still hear significantly louder noises. Of course, you will hear them less loud. Many people find it easier to fall asleep while wearing earplugs and wake up less easily. Noises such as your alarm clock, doorbell or children can still be heard.
The volume of snoring sounds can be very loud and even exceed 95 dB. This is as loud as a pop concert! Despite of the use of earplugs, you will probably still hear this kind of snoring. It does not matter which earplugs you use.
In case you would like the highest possible noise reduction, we would advise you to go to your local ear care specialist for custom made earplugs. Their advantage is that they have a perfect fit because they are an exact copy of your ear canal and close of the ears completely.
How come earplugs never fully block out all noises?
The conduction of sound takes place in two ways: through the air and via bone. Our skull also picks up sonic vibrations. This is called bone conduction. Via bone conduction our eardrum vibrates, because of which we perceive sound; we can hear it. Therefore, sound can never be blocked out completely, just by blocking the ear canal.

Winner Red Dot Award 2015
Alpine Hearing Protection has won the Red Dot Award 2015 for the design of its latest earplugs. The jury of this prestigious design price applauded the “high quality and the innovative ability” of the earplugs.
Twenty years of experience have allowed Alpine to develop a perfect new earplug model. The extremely well thought-out and extensively tested shape of the earplugs provides a natural flat absorption and a great fit.
Alpine Acoustic Filters™ – Unique Filter System
The special acoustic filters in SleepSoft earplugs reduce troublesome and harmful noise, which hinders a good night’s sleep. Snoring sounds and environmental noise are blocked, enabling most people to fall asleep more easily and to enjoy uninterrupted sleep. The special filters prevent a sense of isolation from the outside world. The sounds of the alarm clock, doorbell, alarm, or a crying baby remain sufficiently audible. SleepSoft earplugs are very suitable for use at home, while studying, or while staying in a hotel or at a camping site.
What Noise Reduction do Sleepsoft Earplugs Have?
SleepSoft earplugs have an average attenuation (SNR) of 25 dB. Disturbing sounds will be muffled due to these earplugs, therefore falling asleep will be easier and they prevent from waking up too easy. You will still be able to hear some of your surroundings, for example, you’ll still be able to hear your alarm or your kids.
Snoring sounds usually have a very high sound level. With SleepSoft earplugs, you will muffle a large part of the snoring sounds, with a result that falling asleep will be easier and keep you from continuously waking up. It is not possible to mute the snoring sounds completely. Due to bone conduction, a part of the sound vibrations slip past and will always enter your hearing.
What are they made of?
Sleep Soft Reusable Ear Plugs are made from of a durable, soft, flexible thermoplastic polymer.
Due to the unique super-soft AlpineThermoShape material, and special design, Sleepsoft earplugs are very comfortable to wear for long periods of time. This material adapts to the shape of your ears, thus the earplugs fit perfectly. There is no sense of pressure on your ears. Sleepsofts contains no silicone or latex, which can cause irritation and allergic reactions in many.
Soft Filters – Exceptionally Comfortable
SleepSoft are the only sleeping earplugs on the market with super soft filters that will have you sleeping like a log. However, if you find the earplugs somewhat too long, you can cut off part of the filter/stem without any problems.
Alpine has developed an easy to use cleaning tool to remove earwax from the earplugs. By keeping the earplugs clean, they keep working optimally and last longer.
The lifespan of the earplugs depends on the frequency of use. Keeping the earplugs clean will extend the lifespan. The earplugs can be cleaned with lukewarm water and soap.
