Ear Plugs

The Evolution of Ear Plugs

The first mention of ear plugs in history are in Homer's epic poem "The Odyssey." Odysseus crafts them out of beeswax to keep his crew from hearing the alluring call of the sirens. Luckily for us, ear plugs once made from wax or clay have come a long way. Whether you plan on swimming in a pool, a lake, or even the ocean, you can never go wrong with a good pair of ear plugs. Here at AquaGear, we're proud to offer a wide variety of plugs for swimming and bathing.

Why Swim Plugs?

Ear plugs are fitted into the ear's opening to prevent water (or noise) from entering the ear canal. Earplugs can be a necessary aid in the prevention of swimmer's ear and should be worn in any circumstance where there is potential for water entry into the ear canal. This is doubly important for those suffering from chronic ear infections, those with pressure equalization (PE) tubes in their ears, or for those with a perforated ear drum.

Choosing the Perfect Pair of Ear Plugs

When it comes to picking the best earplugs for swimming, we've got you covered. In order for swim plugs to do their job, they should be of good quality and must be worn correctly and fitted properly. While some folks prefer ear plugs that are malleable, some swimmers prefer those that have been pre-molded to fit the ear.

Pre-Shaped Plugs

Looking for the perfect fit? Pre-molded swimplugs made from soft silicone material like the Aqua Sphere Ear Plugs fit gently into the ear canal and let in the most sound. They're an ideal choice for swimmers not planning to participate in any strenuous physical activity. Pre-molded ear plugs are less likely to "melt" on a hot pool deck; they're easy to clean and they're quick and easy to use.

Moldable Plugs

On the other hand, moldable swimplugs are highly customizable. For those with unique ear shapes, moldable water plugs are the way to go. They are nearly guaranteed to fit and take seconds to put in. And, because of their malleable nature, they'll need to be replaced more often than silicone varieties.

How to Put in Earplugs

Start with clean, dry ears and hands. If you're using putty earplugs, roll the silicone into a ball and smooth it over your ear, from front to back. There's no need to press them into your ear canal - moldable ear plugs make suction over the entire ear opening.

Pre-molded earplugs can simply be inserted and twisted slightly into place. This rotating action allows the plug to slide into place and grip the inside of the ear. Try holding the ear open with one hand and placing the plug with the other.

Take your earplugs out by pushing the back of the ear forward to loosen the suction.

AquaGear Recommends...

Our most popular brand - used by customers of all ages - is Mack's. The brand offers moldable and pre-molded styles, such as the Aqua Block Earplugs. If you prefer pre-molded ear plugs but worry about getting the right fit, try Doc's Ear Plugs. Doc's ear plugs were designed by Robert T. Scott M.D., an internationally-known surfer. His design blocks water effectively, while allowing sound in. Doc's swimming plugs are available in a vented option, perfect for divers of all kinds.

Not sure how to find the right size ear plugs? Doc's combo pack includes 4 sizes of ear plugs, making it easy to find the right fit.

A Must-Have for the Kids

Are your young 'uns coming home with swimmer's ear? Check out our selection of kid's ear plugs. Mack's Kids Ear Plugs are the simplest solution because they're easy to use. Parents also favor these neon, moldable earplugs because they are easy to spot and come doctor-recommended. If your child has a serious ear condition, AquaGear recommends using Doc's brand plugs with the addition of a water-blocking earband.

Want Double the Protection?

If you need 100% protection, try pairing your swim plugs with an Aqua Earband. Ear bands were designed by ear, nose, and throat doctors for post-surgery patients. These simple neoprene strips both block water from entering the ear canal and keep your ear plugs from falling out. Another option for those looking for extra security is the Aqua Glide Swim Cap which features ear pockets that cover more than the average swim cap. For swimmers that suffer from recurring ear infections, try Macks Dry-n-Clear ear solution. It's unique formula dries the inside of the ear while simultaneously maintaining moisture − eliminating potentially chronic pain.

How to Clean Ear Plugs

If your ear plugs are pre-molded, you can wash them just the same as you would your other swim gear: wash with warm water and mild soap and allow them to dry fully before re-inserting them. If your ear plugs are a moldable, putty style, you don't need to wash them after use. Instead, you'll simply discard them after about 5 uses (when they appear dirty, are no longer sticky, or don't hold their shape well).
