Q: How Do EarPlanes Work?

A: EarPlanes consist of two elements: a hypoallergenic silicone ear plug and a ceramic pressure regulator. The silicone earplug has four circumferential rings which provide an airtight seal between the product and ear canal. The ceramic element is a controlled porosity filter, one end of which is exposed to the external cabin pressure, with the opposite end exposed to the sealed chamber formed when the ear plug is inserted in the ear. Thus, as the cabin air pressure changes, a pressure differential is created across the ceramic filter, thereby causing air to flow through the filter. The filter acts as an impedance to the flow of air into and out of the ear canal.

Discomfort is caused by blockage and/or swelling of a passengers Eustachian tube(s). The air pressure changes induced by the aircraft's descent are too rapid for the blocked Eustachian tubes to adjust properly. However, EarPlanes, provide an equal but opposite impedance on the exterior of the middle ear, allowing relief. Discomfort is reduced because the air pressure difference on the exterior and interior of the middle ear is lessened allowing the Eustachian tubes to function more normally.

Q: Who Should use EarPlanes?

A: EarPlanes are intended for people with sensitive ears or people who must fly even though suffering with a cold, allergy or sinus condition. A pediatric version is available for children 1 to 11 years of age.

We do not recommend use of EarPlanes in the event of severe sinus congestion (completely blocked Eustachian tubes).

Q: Are There Any Other Benefits to EarPlanes?

A: EarPlanes also act as noise suppression ear plugs. Many users report that EarPlanes seem to filter out much of the objectionable high frequency noise generated by aircraft engines. Most importantly though, airline flight safety announcements may still be heard (and headsets worn) by users.

Q: Why are EarPlanes Disposable?

A: During operation, air flows through the microscopic pores of the ceramic filter. Particles of smoke, pollen and airborne bacteria are small enough to eventually "clog" the filter and reduce effectiveness.

Good fit bit that’s about it

Really good fit, probably the best fitting earplugs I’ve ever had, BUT hardly blocks out any sound. I would only recommend for flying not for sleeping, especially if you’re a side sleeper. I could still hear really faint noises through these that I would expect it to block for instance an extraction fan from a bathroom down the passage.

Great value

For those people who cannot equalize your ears when travelling these are a must.

No earplanes - no flight!

I was about to give up air travel completely due to excruciating pain on descent until a colleague told me about earplanes. I never travel without at least three sets just on case I lose one. Crazy? Not at all. If you understand that pain you understand why! These little things have saved me from a lifetime of cruising 😎 I ❤ earplanes.

They’ve helped me

I have narrow eustachean tubes and used to suffer a lot when fl6ing.

Since I have been using earplanes I have had little discomfort. I make sure that I follow the guidelines fo4 when to put them in and take them out.
