How to insert earplugs?

This question often runs in our minds. We’ll tell you how to insert earplugs the right or wrong way so you can protect your ears.

If earplugs, whether reusable or disposable, are not inserted correctly, they will not block the level of noise they intend to make.

I can not stress enough the importance of a properly inserted earplug.

When earplugs are inserted only halfway, you are receiving only half of the benefit. Additionally, if earplugs are the wrong size for your ear canal, they are going to fall out, hurt your ears and not provide you with a sufficient amount of “quiet.”

People will often tell us that they have not had success with earplugs blocking noise when they have tried them in the past. If you are wearing earplugs and don’t make a difference to the noise level, they are the wrong size, or they have not been put incorrectly.

Noise Reduction Ratings

How to insert earplugs and other types of hearing protection devices? It is designed to lessen the noise’s harshness and bring it down to a safer, more tolerable level.

Decibel levels up to the earplug’s NRR rating will be blocked out entirely.  Any noise over the earplug’s NRR may be heard.  Another important factor to note is that the body absorbs sound through our heads, not just our ears; so short of encapsulating oneself in a soundproof chamber, it is seemingly impossible to block out 100% of noise.

  Roll the earplug between your fingers to form a squished bullet shape.

If you insert the earplug into the right ear, reach over and across the back of your head with your left hand and gently pull the top of your ear up and out. This ensures that the ear canal is straight and provides a better fit for the earplug.

Insert the rolled-up earplug with a slight turning motion until it is well inside your ear canal. Then use your finger to keep the earplug in place, so it expands completely. I personally count 10 seconds when “anchoring” a foam earplug to ensure the expansion of the foam earplug is securely in place inside the canal. The entire length of the plug should fit inside the ear, with only a small amount protruding.
