Problems sleeping due to excess noise? Neighbours, partner snoring – all these can be a distraction at night. SleepPlugz can help; with their high noise rating they will decrease the surrounding sounds to a tolerable level, helping you to drift off.

ProGuard SleepPlugz will reduce the sound level by a CE certified 24dB, eliminating or reducing sound to a non intrusive level and not totally block it. Allowing you to still hear your morning alarm call or any audible warnings but will be enough to enable you to get a decent night sleep. For example some snoring can be as loud as 90dB that's probably the same as a car horn, the SleepPlugz will reduce this down to around 65dB a much more tolerable level. Most moderate snorers are about 70-75dB, the reduction is down to 50dB, so sleep is much easier. 

SleepPlugz’ elegant design also offers an open air passage to the ear, minimising the occlusion effect*, whilst keeping the ear ventilated and cool for optimum comfort during the night.

Supplied with two sizes of soft, pliable eartips to suit most ears, they will slip easily into your ear without any discomfort. Just remember it may sound unnaturally quiet for the first night. After that you’ll wonder why you didn’t use them earlier.

*Occlusion effect occurs when using some earplugs, typically low frequencies of your own voice can be transmitted through bone conduction.

Sleep Earplugs Advice

 An important consideration is that it's impossible to completely block all sound regardless of the claims of any manufacturer. Sound gets to your hearing organ in two ways. By air through your ear canal and conducted through your skull and jaw bone. Just listen to yourself eating a packet of crisps or crunching cornflakes for breakfast. The chewing motion sounds are getting to your hearing organ through the bone structure of your jaw. In the same way even though you have plugged your ears you will hear some loud sounds. Low frequency sounds such as snoring will be significantly reduced by earplugs, but some sound will still get through by way of bone in your skull. Through evolution, hearing is the only sense that does not shut down when you go to sleep, so that you become aware of danger of attack including the alarm clock. And worse still, in silence and when you are asleep your hearing is at its most acute. This residual level of noise cannot be blocked by conventional ear plugs since there is a limit to which you can stop air conducted noise before bone conducted noise becomes apparent. 

There is however a way in which the annoyance of this reduced noise can be overcome. With people who suffer from tinnitus the annoying noise is generated internally. Using the Neuro-Physiological Model for the alleviation of tinnitus, it is possible to block these annoying sounds by using a device which generates a sound which is pleasant to hear and which your brain will learn to ignore.  This can be soporific sounds (Heartbeat, Waves, Running River, Birdsong, Summer Night, Rain) or White Noise; something you (and your partner) can listen to without disturbance. We sell a noise therapy device Wellcare Sound Generator or other Apps are available on smartphones that can do the same job (remember however if you leave this on the phone could ring!) Fit your earplugs (and partners may need use them too) and then turn up the sound to the point where it just blocks out the little bit of sound that is annoying you. 

You now have a situation where the ear plugs are doing the bulk of the noise reduction and your brain by habituation is doing the rest.
