Dental drills….. the saddest tool in the trade. They whine all day! Most of them peak at somewhere between 3K-6KHz which is exactly where the Earasers give you the most protection. The human voice is centred at 250Hz for Men and 300Hz for Women, so you will still be able to hear conversations amazingly well, while wearing these. Even better, you won’t have to take them in and out due to discomfort, itching or sweating which could be a major pain due to contamination issues. Just leave them in all day…you might even go home with them in and forget they are there! Truly, it happens a lot, as these are just that comfortable and clear sounding.
Dental drills are known to generate excessive high frequencies, that over time can cause damaging hearing loss. Most drills generate noise above 2KHz – and that is where Earasers Dental Earplugs provide the most protection: between 2KHz-8Khz. That may only be two octaves of vocal range, but it can cause tinnitus and ear fatigue after a full day on the job. Earasers allow voices to come through the filter, but not the NOISE! We guarantee these will work and that you can wear them all day with absolute comfort. You won’t ever have to take them out and risk getting them contaminated. Just leave them in until you are finished with your day.
Research has proven that many sources of high decibel and/or high frequency noises found in dental offices can potentially damage hearing permanently including: high-speed hand pieces, high-volume evacuators, ultrasonic instruments and cleaners, model trimmers and other laboratory devices.
Revolutionary – The World’s 1st Flat Frequency Response Ear Plug
What this means is they are a quality Ear Plug that will not muffle the sound of your patient’s voice.
Foam Earplugs block and muffle all sounds. High-fidelity earplugs have been designed with acoustic filters which block out the harmful decibels but still allow the wearer to hear sounds around them.
Acoustic filters lower the decibels equally from high to low frequencies.
The Musician and the dental plugs are a filtering plug. You should still hear everything clearly, but receive the protection that is needed to protect your hearing.
Earasers high-fidelity earplugs can reduce dental equipment noise from an average of 85 dB to a safer and more comfortable 66 dB, whilst still allowing for communication with patients and colleagues.
Although the ear already carries out a great job at amplifying soft sounds, it is also the main reason that loud sounds become unbearable.
Our ear canals can add 17-20 decibels of sound pressure at 2700Hz, which you definitely don’t want in addition to any given loud environment. Earasers have achieved the ONLY Flat Rate Frequency Response Ear Plug in the World by inverting the natural resonance of the ear canal.

While we wish there were an easy chart for everyone to follow to find their perfect sized EARasers earplug, research has discovered that your individual ear canal size is not at all determined by height and weight, but rather age and gender and good ol’ DNA from your biological parents. Years of fitting individuals has given us a general guideline, however, and don’t forget there is the complimentary size swap out that’s available to you as well. Once you’re in the right size for your unique needs….You’ll be all set – and we are ‘hear’ to help you do just that!!
GENERAL GUIDELINES: (use your past experience as well to assist you. Remember, we have 4 sizes…and a billion different ear canals in the world. You do the math!) First Time Users…Keep reading below about EARasers Starter Kit, so you have two sets of tips to try on side by side for one set of filters. It makes “getting it right the first time” so much simpler.
X-SMALL – generally used by youth, such as Primary Schoolers, and some High Schoolers – Also a small percentage of the adult population, Male and Female. If you’ve always had a difficult time finding any earplug that would fit comfortably into your ear canal, then this may just be your perfect category for you. We always recommend you try the SMALL before attempting the X-SMALL since it is so tiny.
SMALL – typically the majority of women and younger males (late 20s and younger). Works well for some Adult Males with a smaller ear canal.
MEDIUM – typically these work well with Adult Males (late 20’s and up) who do well with the average earbud.
LARGE – enjoyed by a small percentage of the adult population. Some Males over 60 and some Females as well. (Did you know women, that being able to wear this size EARasers earplug is a sign of “Genius!?!” (Thank your biological parents.)
Time to think back to your personal past experience with earplugs and/or earbuds? Any indication you may have small or tiny canals? If so, we recommend you try the SMALL size. If standard ear-buds seem to work well for you, then perhaps you would do well with the MEDIUM.
‘HEAR’ is the same info…broken down by gender rather than Size:
Women – generally speaking, women do well with Smalls, (again, rely on your past experience)
Young Males (late 20s and younger) – generally speaking, most younger Males do well with Smalls. Our ear canals grown our whole life. If you find that standard earbuds seem to work quite well then perhaps a Medium.
Adult Males (Late 20s and up) – Generally this group is split about 50/50 between Small & Medium. This is where your own personal past experience comes in handy. If you have any indication that you may have tiny canals, then start with a Small. If standard earbuds seem to work fine for you, then perhaps start with a Medium. We will always do our best to help you find your appropriate size.
Your Earasers can easily be cleaned following the steps below. Be certain to NEVER (say it with me…..NEVER) Stick or Poke anything down into the tip, or opening, of your earplug. Doing so WILL result in a popped, or unsecured, filter or coupler rendering your earplug “damaged” and thus voiding the warranty.
* To clean your Earasers, simply rinse off under warm water and let dry. Water will not harm the filter, however, try to refrain from using soaps as they may cling to your filter and could create a build up.
* “Alcohol-free” wipes are perfectly fine to use. Alcohol wipes can dry out the silicone over time and compromise the integrity of your plugs.
* It is totally normal for ears to generate earwax. If wax, or debris, goes into the tip of your Earasers, it can gently be removed by simply using a “Soft Bristled Brush” such as a Soft Head Toothbrush, or a soft Baby Nail Brush. Using warm water and the soft bristle brush, gently work the wax and debris out. The soft bristles will gently remove the wax without having to insert anything down into the tip. Remember to NEVER stick or poke anything down inside the opening as it will damage your earplug.
