Custom sleep earplugs. Can be made by a hearing healthcare professional by taking an earmold impression of your ear and sending that impression to an earplugs manufacturer who will then custom make a pair of ear plugs for you. These usually offer the most sound attenuation.
Disposable sleep ear plugs. Typically made of a soft foam material for comfort. They are only meant to be used one or two times at most before a new pair is needed.
Moldable earplugs. A great alternative solution for when you can’t get a comfortable fit with a traditional earplug and you don’t like the way the foam feels in the ear. These are made of a wax or silicone material and are molded into the bowl of the ear by the wearer.
Reusable sleep ear plugs. Typically made of a soft silicone or plastic material. They are generally more durable and can be reused for several night’s sleep.
