We often get asked which would be the best earplugs for me? This is a tricky question for us & can often be difficult to answer because no two individuals are the same. What a boring old world it would be if we were right!

We often get asked which would be the best earplugs for me?

This is a tricky question for us & can often be difficult to answer because no two individuals are the same. What a boring old world it would be if we were right!

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.

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.

Quite simply, 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.

We offer a large variety of earplugs to suit all people and all applications. There are earplugs for sleeping, swimming, studying, flying, dentists, shooting, working, musicians, children and more.

Macks Soft Foam Ear Plugs

Macks Ear Pugs have been committed to supplying the highest quality, hearing protection, sleep aids, and swimmer’s ear prevention products at the best possible value since for over 50 years!

We are proud to a part of their team in offering a full range of earplug styles for sleeping, swimming, bathing, snoring, music, shooting, travelling, loud noise, and flying discomfort.

Our Dreamgirl and Slimfit are ideal for people with smaller ear canals (men and women alike). 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 ones 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 an work.

What is NRR?

NRR stands for Noise Reduction Rating. NRR is the amount of sound, measured in decibels, that a pair of earplugs will block out.

To better understand this, a persons hearing threshold is defined as 0db (decibels). Someone with normal/good hearing can hear sounds at 15db. A watch ticking would have a level around 20db, whilst whispering rates at approximately 30db, the average conversation is around 50 – 60db.

The highest noise reduction rating (NRR) currently offered by an earplug is around 32 decibels.  Decibel levels up to the earplug’s NRR rating will be blocked out entirely.  Any noise over the earplug’s NRR may be heard.  Another important factor to note is that the body absorbs sound; so short of encapsulating oneself in a soundproof chamber, it is seemingly impossible to block out all noise.  Earplugs and other types of hearing protection devices are designed to lessen the harshness of the noise and bring it down to a safer, more tolerable level.

Snoring, NRR & Ear Plugs

Earplugs are very commonly used to block out the sound of a partner snoring.

A person snoring generally produces a sound level between 50db (being for a light snorer) to 80db (for a heavy snorer). Most snorers register between 50 – 70 db. The sound of a petrol lawnmower would be equivalent to 80 – 90db. With this in mind, it is no wonder we find it difficult to sleep soundly with a snoring partner.

When you wear a pair of 32 NRR Ear Plugs such as Macks Snore Blockers, the sound level of snoring, based on the above levels is reduced between 18db to 48db. Earplugs are designed to successfully reduce the amount of harmful noise to enter your ears, this making your surroundings more tolerable to help to promote a good nights sleep.

Are there Ear Plugs that can TOTALLY block out ALL Noise?

Currently, the highest Noise Reduction Rating (NRR) being offered by an earplug is around 32dB. This means that any noise up to that earplugs NRR will be blocked completely and any noise over this level may still be heard.

An interesting fact is that the “whole body” actually absorbs sound, so short of finding yourself a comfortable soundproof chamber to call home, there is no way to totally block all noise. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news for all parents out there who have children 😉

Earplugs are designed to lessen the severity of the noise and bring it down to a more tolerable and safer level.

Is there a right way to insert Ear Plugs?

Absolutely!

I can not stress enough the importance of a properly inserted earplug.  

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.

  1. Damien French

    Mack snoozers are the chuck Norris of the ear plug world!

  2. Liz, Perth WA

    I recently had a weekend away with a friend who snores so I ordered these in the lead up to our trip after a friend suggested this website.
    What a great idea as I had no idea that earplugs even came in different sizes.
    I found the pillow softs comfortable to wear, like all the feedback online, I preferred to wear these while we went swimming.
    My favourites though were the Macks Original. I found these to be the most soft and blocked the most sound for me out of all the earplugs.

  3. Daniel Hampton park Victoria

    The green (Snore Blockers), the wax (Pillow Soft) and the pink (Dream Girl) were not suitable for me..
    The brown ones (Ultra) block significant noise of metal dropping to the floor, hammering and general steel work noises.
    Thanks for a great product. I am ordering a pack of 50!

  4. Lynda Narre Warren Vic

    My son is a fabricator and works in engineering.
    Metal is dropped, hammered and cut all day.
    His hearing was suffering.
    The plugs at work are hard and hurt his ears.
    We didn’t know which plugs to trial.
    The sample pack was a perfect option.
    The brown ones (Macks Ultra Soft) were the ones which suited him best.
    They fitted well and were comfortable.
    Thumbs up to the sample pack and now we know what to order.
    Delivery was fast….
    Thanks for the opportunity to trial.
    We are ordering a container of 50 as I speak..
    He will be sure to credit you with his continued hearing in 50 years.

  5. Lynda Narre Warren Victoria

    My son is a welder and he has trialled the mixed sample pack.
    The Pink ones provide the best protection against the extreme noises in the welding and fabrication industry.
    They do NOT hurt his ears putting them in or taking them out.
    There is NO ache in his ears.
    If you work in this industry or any other noisy environment… be a man… and wear the pink!

  6. Janine

    Earplugs are definitely a trial and error thing, because everyone has different sized ear canals. I had no idea what size mine were.
    I was so happy to try 4 different pairs of earplugs to work out which ones were the best for me, without having to buy lots of different packets of them.
    So it seems my ear canals are smaller as I really found the Dreamgirls most comfortable and worked best for me. My second favourites were the Pillow Soft.
    Thanks guys!
