It depends on your preferences! All noise cancelling ear plugs have built-in technology to block external noises and help you to sleep comfortably.
At Earjobs, we stock the largest collection of noise cancelling ear plugs in New Zealand — and at affordable prices. You can choose from these types of sleeping ear plugs:
- Foam. The simplest option, foam ear plugs are ultra-soft and inserted partway into the ear, so they won’t cause damage to the ear drums. To avoid infection, it’s best to dispose of foam ear plugs after one use.
- Wax. For a more tailored fit, wax ear plugs mould to the size and shape of your ear. They’re popular among people who use noise cancelling ear plugs for sleeping and swimming, and they’re waterproof too.
- Silicone. If you’re looking for reusable ear plugs, silicone is the way to go. They’re designed to cover the entrance of the ear, so they’re great for side sleepers and those living in slightly quieter environments.
- Custom moulded. The ultimate noise cancelling ear plugs, custom moulded pairs block high levels of noise. They’re designed to fit the size and shape of your ear, and offer the tightest seal.
You can also opt for noise cancelling headphones for extra noise protection. These block background or “low frequency” sounds as well as intermittent noise. They’re soft, comfortable and easy to remove, making them ideal for children and adults alike. The new-generation headphones are compact and lightweight, and can often fold down to a smaller size for travel.
