Earplugs come in many different styles (expandable foam, shaped silicone, musician style, custom-fitted and even electronic earplugs). Each style of earplug has been designed to filter out a certain level of noise/sound, this level is measured in decibels.
Which Earplugs are Best for You?
We often get asked this and it is a tricky question for us & can sometimes be difficult to answer because no two individuals are the same. What a boring old world it would be if we were right!
Our ear canals, just like our fingerprints, are quite unique & individual. Additionally, we all have different reasons for wearing earplugs. Whether it be to block out noise from power tools, motorsports, shooting sports, concerts, loud events or snoring!
When choosing a pair of earplugs it is important that you take particular notice of the NRR. (Noise Reduction Rating) The NRR is an indication of the amount of hearing protection that it will give. The higher the NRR the more sound it will block.
When choosing earplugs, we suggest you go for quality, comfort and effectiveness.
Sometimes it takes a bit of trial and error to work out which earplugs best suit you and your needs.
That is why we’ve created our Ear Plug Variety Pack!

Do all Earplugs fit all ears?
In a word… No.
Our ear canals, just like our fingerprints, are quite unique & individual. Additionally, we all have different reasons for wearing earplugs. Whether it be to block out noise from power tools, motor sports, shooting sports, concerts, loud events or snoring!
Earplugs are designed & manufactured with these different requirements in mind & the best way to find which earplugs best suit your needs is simply to try them.

For this reason, we mostly find the Dreamgirl’s and Slimfit are to be the most popular and comfortable amongst women. Having said that, some men and teenage boys can also have smaller ear canals. That is why we suggest you try a few different pairs to see which one’s are the best fit for you.
The Ultra’s and the Originals continue to be the favourite earplugs for the majority of male customers who are looking to block out noise for sleep and work.
Ultra Soft and Originals are favoured by the gents looking to block out noise for a wide range of applications.
Macks Silicone Ear Plugs are our number one bestseller for swimming and water sports. Made of soft silicone putty, they are favoured by both men and women of all ages for their extreme comfort. They sit securely in the ear as they easily mould to the shape of the ear canal and opening. They are aptly named “Pillow Soft” and frequently double as an alternative to soft foam ear plugs and worn commonly for sleeping and other sound-blocking events. Our customers have told us that the cheaper, wax type ear plugs, that they have tried in the past are no comparison to Macks Pillow Soft Silicone Ear Plugs.
