Sleep matters: the best earplugs for sleeping with a snorer

While the foam earplugs in your airplane kit can give you a noise-free flight, they only offer a temporary fix.Whether you need to drown out your partner’s snoring or block out the barking from the puppy next-door, custom-made earplugs are an effective long-term solution. When sleeping with a snorer, only the best earplugs will do.


The best earplugs for sleeping with a snorer: what’s wrong with disposable earplugs?

Disposable foam earplugs are a cheap option. They are soft and comfortable for sleeping in. However, as a porous material they're a fertile breeding grown for bacteria. Bacteria can thrive on earplugs, leading to infection. If you have foam earplugs, make sure you keep them clean or replace them regularly. 


The best earplugs for sleeping with a snorer:  why silicone is superior

Silicone is the perfect material for earplugs. It's easily moulded into shape to fit the unique contours of your ears. Most importantly, they are so comfortable that many people forget they are wearing them. Hearsafe Australia are the proud distributors of custom-made earplugs, Elacin Relax and Pluggerz Side Sleeper, arguably the best earplugs for sleeping with a snorer. They are made from silicone with a softness of 40 Shore. (‘Shore’ is a measure of the hardness of a given material or how resistant it will be to permanent indentation).


The best earplugs for sleeping with a snorer:  why Elacin?

If you want to be able to fully concentrate and want more comfort while sleeping or travelling, Elacin Relax are the answer. The earmoulds completely exclude ambient noise for better concentration when you work and sleep. Due to the fully hollow design, they wear comfortably when sleeping and are ideal for students, frequent travellers, shift workers and partners of people who snore.


Can I still hear an alarm or warning signal while wearing Elacin Relax earmoulds?

Elacin Relax earplugs have no acoustical filter. However, they completely seal off the ear canal for maximum attenuation. Note: Because sound also enters your body via the nose, mouth and bones (bone conduction), alarm and warning signals remain perceptible.



What if I am a side sleeper?

Pluggerz Side Sleeper, another popular product in the Hearsafe Australia range, have a unique filter that helps remove background sounds without completely sealing off the ear - so that you can still hear your alarm clock and other important noises such as crying babies. The custom-fit Pluggerz Side Sleeper is made from super-soft silicone (25 or 40 Shore) and is hollow - so it moves smoothly with your ear when you sleep on your side.




Pluggerz Sleep: Earplugs on a budget

Ideal for sleeping in a noisy environment, Pluggerz Sleep are a fraction of the price of Elacin Relax and Pluggerz Side Sleeper earplugs. They are made of durable and flexible hypoallergenic silicone that keeps its shape. For daily use and for extra comfort, we advise Pluggerz Side Sleeper and Elacin Relax earplugs.
