Silicone Ear Plugs
Plagued by ear infections? We have the solution. Silicone ear plugs provide the best protection against all types of ear maladies, from swimmer's ear to tinnitus. Every earplug in our collection is chlorine-resistant and durable yet hypo-allergenic and soft to the touch.
The Best Earplugs
Consumers and doctors alike recommend silicone ear plugs because they won't irritate sensitive ears or degrade in chlorinated water, like foam and rubber styles. They also come in a variety of shapes and sizes to accommodate every user. Plus, silicone swimming ear plugs do a fantastic job blocking water from entering the ear canal which can cause swimmer's ear, a painful infection caused by trapped water.
Silicone ear plugs are also known for their sound-dampening effect, making them ideal for musicians, motorcyclists, and travelers. They won't completely deaden your hearing though - you'll be able to hear your coach's instructions or a lifeguard's whistle.
Pre-Shaped or Moldable Silicone Ear Plugs?
Choosing the best silicone ear plugs for swimming may not be as straightforward as you'd like it to be. These days, most companies use latex-free silicone, so the options before you are myriad. Simple putty-style plugs are easily operated by a child, while pre-sized designs, like Doc's Proplugs, are best for people who need guaranteed protection and have a little more time to devote to finding the right fit.
How to Put In Silicone Ear Plugs
Learning how to use your silicone ear plugs is simple. If you have a pair of moldable ear plugs, just roll the plug into a ball and smooth it over your ear's opening, from back to front. You should feel the plug create a slight suction over your ear.
If you're planning to pick up some pre-shaped silicone ear plugs, you'll simply slide the plug into the ear canal and give it a little twist to get it seated properly.
