    I am a light sleeper, all kinds of noises wake me up. I got my first good night of sleep after wearing a pair of Flents Quiet Time Soft Comfort Foam Ear Plugs. Unfortunately, they were from batch of NR31s which are no longer made so I needed to find a better alternative.

    After some research, I found the Max Lite LPF-1 and I can sleep more soundly for longer stretches. I usually get woken up by my neighbors bickering every night at 1am, and after wearing these, no more! I have also used the pink and yellow Howard Leight LL1 Laser Lites which you can usually pick up at CVS locally. I measured with a ruler and it looks like both the LPF-1 and LL1 are the same size width-wise (~9mm), but the LPF-1 is more comfortable to me because of the low pressure foam for my smaller ear canals. The LL1s will block more noise since they are rated NRR32 and the LPF-1 is rated NRR29. But if you have smaller ear canals that get irritated by other larger earplugs, the Max Lites may be a good alternative.

    These earplugs cannot completely block out loud noises such as honking horns, but it will block out quieter ambient noises such as a car speeding by, people talking outside, car doors slamming, light snoring, hovering helicopters, etc. They have allowed me to sleep through my cat meowing for food or scratching at the door in the morning.

    I did notice after wearing one pair of earplugs consistently for about 2 weeks, they stopped blocking out as much noise. After switching to a new pair, the problem was gone, so make sure you replace them periodically.

    According to the packaging, these are made in the USA. If you like these, they also come in a 200 industrial sized pack on Amazon.

    Side note: To remove earplugs safely, twist like a screw to first break the seal, then pull out. Removing by pulling the earplug straight out without first twisting to break the seal can create a suction effect on your eardrum and possibly cause damage to your hearing.

    I tried some “Sleep Pretty in Pink ‘Women’s’ Ear Plugs” because the bright orange Sperian NRR33 plugs that I bought had me waking up in pain that lasted for hours after I took them out. The Pretty in Pink NRR 32s weren’t much better in terms waking up with pain or at least great discomfort in my ear canals. So I tried the purple Mack’s Slim Fit “Safe Sound Jr.” NRR 29 plugs. They’re super comfortable and didn’t have me waking up in pain, but they didn’t help me much in the way of getting to sleep next to my snoring partner, either. The Mack’s Slim Fits are alright if I am able to get to bed and get to sleep first. They do enough at least to keep the snoring from waking me up (as far as I am aware of). I needed something more effective, though, that wouldn’t hurt. These green-colored Howard Leight MAX Lite NRR30s are the best compromise I have found. I can still hear my partner’s snoring, but it’s a bit more muffled than with the purple Mack’s Slim Fits. They’re not as comfortable as the Mack’s Slim Fits, but they don’t HURT like the Sperian NRR33s do or the Sleep Pretty in Pink can do.

    I brought the howard leight Max lite and the Max-1 in order to block out my husbands snoring (which can get EXTREMELY loud). The earplugs work very well and are for the most part pretty comfortable. The earplugs makes my husband’s snoring either inaudible or bearable according to how tired/loud he is. Two points of interest though the Max-1 block the noise slightly better than the Max lite but do not fit in my ear canal as well (there have been a few mornings that I woke up with them out of my ears). The other thing that I noticed is when you but the plugs in you can hear your internal sounds (ie heartbeat) very clearly, so what I do now is get comfortable and relax my breathing before inserting the plugs.
