Let’s face it, ear aches are not fun. A lot of people suffer from discomfort from water getting into the ear canal.
Those of us who are regularly in the water are even more prone to developing ear infections or getting surfers ear.
That’s why many fans of various water sports want to protect their ears against the wind and water when swimming, (kite) surfing, sailing, water skiing, rowing, wake-boarding etc.
Where the ear canal is actually blocked by this condition, water and wax can become trapped and give rise to infection
Designed to not only prevent water from entering the ear canal, but thanks to the unique filters, ambient sounds can still be easily heard and understood.
This makes for the ideal earplug when surfing with mates, swim squad training, yachting etc.
SwimSafe earplugs are also perfect for using when in the shower to keep water from entering the ears.
Alpine SwimSafe Earplugs unique patented open duct filters keep the water out while still allowing you to hear conversations out of the water.
What is surfers’ ear? Irritation from cold wind and water exposure causes the bone surrounding the ear canal to develop lumps of new bony growth which constrict the ear canal. Where the ear canal is actually blocked by this condition, water and wax can become trapped and give rise to infection. In some cases, it leads to surgery to have the obstructing ear canal bone removed.
The innovative Alpine earplugs are made of special thermoplastic material, developed by Alpine: AlpineThermoShape. This material takes on the shape of the ear, so the earplugs have a perfect fit, and stay in place at all times. ATS does not contain any silicones and therefore causes no allergic reactions.
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 them extremely comfortable to wear, even for long periods of time.
In addition to the convenient carrying case, you will also find a cool Alpine Miniboxx in each SwimSafe package. This convenient carrying case is easy to take with you to the pool and when you’re swimming it can be easily attached to your wrist, on your key ring, or attached to your wetsuit zipper.
Twenty years of experience have allowed Alpine to develop a perfect new earplug model. The extremely well thought-out and extensively tested shape of these earplugs, provides the perfect fit
