Don't let water or noise damage your ears by using the Silicone-Putty Ear Plugs from Hearos. Soft and flexible, these silicone earplugs fit perfectly in the ears to prevent water from getting inside while swimming. With a noise-reduction rating of 22 decibels, they block out loud noises and protect hearing. Ideal for wearing under water, you can also use these earplugs while flying to prevent ear discomfort or while sleeping to block out unwanted noise.
I just had a small piece of the mack’s Silicone ear plugs removed from my ear by my doctor after I pushed it too far into my ear canal while trying to sleep and it got lost in there. Couldn’t even feel it anymore but I could tell it was blocked and my hearing reduced. The doctor used this lighted tool with a tiny shovel on the end and basically scraped it away from my ear drum. It was a bit painful and a lot scary. Took about 10-15 minutes. That was a few hours ago and I feel fine now. Lesson learned. Follow the directions, even though it really doesn’t block much noise that way.

These earplugs are the very best plugs I have ever used and infinitely more effective than their foam counterparts. They are a silicone putty material and malleable so can be molded to conform to your ear. First, use your fingers to work them into a ball and soften them. Press them firmly into your ear. Ear canals are oily with many fine hairs and sometimes not so fine hairs so be sure that you start with a clean ear or the plugs are likely to move around and lose their seal. I get about a week out of each pair until they begin to dry out and become less effective.
I've used several brands after having my ear tube surgery (adult). These are very hard, large and uncomfortable. Will have to go elsewhere for the Macks again.
Also, they slide and water still gets in. Which completely defeats the purpose.
Strange that MACKS dpci # is the same as target ear plugs- but I’m pretty sure they’re the same. They keep me sleeping from waking up little sounds like people moving, traffic driving, etc. big dogs barking might wake you though! I wish we could make them sticky again bc they seem to go bad quickly.
Why did you stop carrying Macks Silicone Ear Plugs? Please bring them back!!! These are no substitute and provide little to no noise reduction. Like other reviews have stated they are too hard and will not spread in order to cover over your ear canal. I definitely would not use them as water proofing earplugs as they will not form a proper seal outside the water. I can't imagine them holding a seal while wet. Bring Macks back please!!!
