Product Overview

  • Trusted Since 1992

Test according to ANSI Specs S3.19-1974

The level of noise entering a person's ear, when hearing protector is worn as directed, is closely approximated by the difference between the A-weighted environmental noise level and the NRR.

Attenuation Chart (ANSI S3.19-1974)
Frequency 125 250 500 1000 2000 3150 4000 6300 8000
Mean Attenuation (dB) 38.4 40.3 43.2 41.8 38.6 45.0 45.7 49.6 47.3
Standard Deviation (dB) 2.9 3.5 4.0 3.8 2.6 2.8 3.5 3.8 4.3


  1. The environmental noise level as measured at the ear is 92 decibels dB(A).
  2. The NRR is 32 decibels (dB).
  3. The level of the noise entering the ear is approximately 60 dB(A).

Noise Reduction Rating 32 Decibels (When Used As Directed).

The range of noise reduction ratings for existing hearing protectors is approximately 0 to 30 (Higher numbers denote greater effectiveness).

Suggested Use

Easy Instructions: Ear plugs must be inserted properly for optimum performance.

  1. With clean hands, firmly roll entire ear plug between thumb and fingers to form a thin tight cylinder.
  2. Using one hand, gently lift top of ear up to open ear canal. With other hand, insert rounded end of ear plug.
  3. With forefinger, hold ear plug in place until it expands to form a comfortable, snug fit.

Practice of insertion is recommended. Discard product after several uses or as soon as dirt or wax accumulates on ear plugs.


Caution: Keep away from infants. This product is non-toxic but may interfere with breathing if caught in windpipe.

For noise environments dominated by frequencies below 500 Hz, the C-weighted environmental noise level should be used. Improper fit of this device will reduce its effectiveness in attenuating noise. Consult the above instructions for proper fit. Although hearing protectors can be recommended for protection against the harmful effects of impulsive noise, the Noise Reduction Rating (NRR) is based on the attenuation of continuous noise and may not be an accurate indicator of the protection attainable against impulsive noise such as gunfire. The Noise Reduction Rating (NRR) calculated from the attenuation data is 32dB. Ear plugs must be properly fitted to attenuate noise effectively. Refer to instructions.

You should definately try these

Posted by DenaerisTargaryen on Dec 19, 2013

I purchased the Hearos Ultimate Softness Series ear plugs to use at night since my dh snors and I am very sensitive to sound. At first I tried using those bright orange silicon ear plugs. They fall and got stuck into my hair. I also tried to white ones for adults, not as effective as the foam ones. If you still hear alot of noise this means you have not inserted them correctly. I also tried the orange foam ones as well as the orange and yellow foam ones. They are great but they give me a soar ear canal. I also tried the pink ones Macks dreamgirl. They are very comfy but not as effective as Hereos. The Hearos plugs seem to be very effective in blocking out the noises of TV, snors etc but are more comfortable and I don't wake up with sore ear canals. They are also very easy to extract. The plugs can be a bit tricky to insert, same as all foam plugs but once they're in there they are comfortable and don't stick out from your ear. The other plugs I used stuck out quite a bit and caused discomfort when smooshed against a pillow. I gave these ear plugs 5 stars because they are the ultimate combination of comfort and effectiveness... and I can finally get a restful sleep without a sour ear canal.

My saviours!

Posted by Rigonda on Sep 10, 2012

These earplugs really are my saviours, nothing disturbs my sleep, I can't imagine my life without them any more. The softest earplugs I have ever used, really soft and comfortable. And the noise blocking quality is perfect.

Too effective!

Posted by Reviewer1333587 on Sep 08, 2011

These ear plugs are so effective for me they block out 95% of all sound. I don't like to feel that isolated so I use them to fall asleep but sometime during the night I remove them. They seal so tightly that my ears itch after a couple of hours wearing, once I remove them the itching stops in a few minutes. Ear canals need to breath too I guess.

ear plugs

Posted by wendybrown on Mar 27, 2010

the thing that impresses me about these ear plugs is that they actually stay in my ears all night long. the thing that does not impress me is that they barely work. So, when my husband snores, I turn myself around with my head at the feet and my feet at the head and with the hearos in my ears and the blanket over my ears as well and I can finally sleep.

Great ear plugs

Posted by Reviewer1427712 on Nov 03, 2010

The best ear plugs for sleeping that I have found to date. The softest and therefore easiest to insert, and stay in all night.
