If you've been looking for a little peace and quiet, specially fit ear canal plugs can give you the relief you need. Good for almost any purpose, and by nature small enough to be carried anywhere, they are convenient, available nearly everywhere, and most importantly, highly effective. Earplugs can reduce loud noises to whispers and can block out ambient noise completely, allowing you to focus on the tasks at hand.

Most ear canal plugs come with a NNR (noise reduction) rating of between 20 and 35, meaning that they block out between 20 and 35 dB of sound. In an extremely loud environment, such as a factory or an airport runway, that translates into effective protection against permanent hearing damage. In a more normal environment such as a college dorm room or an office, a 20 dB reduction in volume means absolute solace.

Think of it: no more noisy co-workers gossiping next door, no more noise of parties down the hall, no more of your neighbors late-night guitar solos. If you work from home, earplugs can turn a day of putting up with roommates, neighbors, or traffic into a day of record-breaking productivity. You'll be glad you gave them a try.

Purchasing Ear Canal Plugs or Another Form of Hearing Protection Device

If you're looking to purchase a form of noise protection, you know it can be tough to wade through the mountain of options out there. Researching by looking online or calling hardware stores or specialty stores can give you the information you need to make a wise choice. It is important to choose the right ear protection for your needs, and knowing what's out there can make a big difference.
