Product Overview

  • Trusted Since 1992

Tested 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.

Caution: 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 attention data is 32dB. Ear plugs must be properly fitted to attenuate noise effectively. Refer to instructions.

These ea plugs are the best of any plugs I used for the last 15 years. I don't hear snorring husband, morning namaz from neighboring mosque, street traffic, jet motors noise at an airplane - the only problem is to hear morning alarm clock)))) It is delicate and soft, reasonable size. Definetly I will repeat this purchase.

Hearos Ultimate Sotftness

Posted by Reviewer2645290 on Jul 21, 2009

I live in central London, UK, and can honestly say that Hearos Ultimate Softness are the best earplugs on the world market for my purposes. I don't have a serious noise problem but for the occasional parties in the apartment above me, Hearos are the answer - blissful silence every time! They are comfortable and noise resistant.

These plugs work well for only about 2-3 uses. Tried washing them and they lost the expanding ability to seal off the ear canal therefore losing the noise reduction capabilities.

I'm addicted to ear plugs and can't sleep without a pair of them. These are my favorites so far, very soft but effective!

it was ok

Posted by Reviewer2473355 on Mar 06, 2008

I bought this product b/c i had jus discovered the joys of having earplugs on while studying in a dorm full of roommaes or even in a library wih so called "quiet zones". While my silicone earplugs did do a good job, they had to be placed in your ear a cerain way to make sure they were their mos efficient, as well afer a while they became uncomfortable. Anoher major thing that didn't like was that they easily became dirty everytime i kept molding them. Another site had done a comparision of different earplugs that were worth their price. And in the end the Hearos earplugs came on top. Pros: - i liked how it was easily moldable when placing in my ears. - as well i liked how it was much more durable and clean compared to my silicone earplugs. - couldn't hear bckground noises (i.e vents, tv at very low vol., etc Cons: - it became uncomfortable after a while - was still able to hear noise (i.e. people talking, footsteps,tv at normal vol., etc.) all-in-all it was pretty much average, i think i'll just switch back and forth between the hearos and the silicone depending on how quiet my study areas are.
