ProEliminate most noise, comfortable.

ConsDo not eliminate Irish mothers.

First things first: my deepest, sincerest apologies for the title. Blame Bnibbles, a man not at all afraid to capitalise on the power of innuendo. Earplugs are, to be honest, not something I ever pictured myself writing a review about. They're quite dull and mundane things, really. They are...

“Boots Disposable Ear Plugs”

published 21/07/2011

ProReduce noise

ConsNot comfortable for sleeping on

Any woman with a snoring partner will feel my pain! I very often end up looking like a zombie at work due to a lack of sleep the previous night thanks to the noise coming from the other half! My mother has the same problem and recommended I got some ear plugs as they worked for her and she now...

“Hear No Evil”

ProEasy to use, reasonably effective

ConsThey slip oout, they don't cut out all the noise

One thing that I really can’t stand about this here body of mine is that he’s a very light sleeper, bless him. If I’m in a hotel, and somebody farts in the room above me, it’ll probably wake me up. So passing traffic, drunken hooligans, noisy air-conditioning systems and...

“Blocks all Problems”

published 19/01/2008

ProCheap, effective, easy to use

ConsNone

I am not the best person in the world at getting to sleep. Usually, it takes me a very long time if it's not really dark and completely quiet. I'm also one of those people who does not function at all well without the usual eight hours sleep a night. So, when I realised I'd be spending the night...

ConsMAy cause an infection if you are not careful

I have been using Boots Disposable Earplugs for a few months and I can honestly highly recommend them to anyone who needs to block out noises during the night, in order to aid restful sleep. I have been married for forty-five years and I would say that during the past ten to fifteen years my wife...

“Silence Is Golden”

published 18/08/2004

Proyou can sleep better

Consnot all noises are shut out

I´d like to quote a comment I found on an op on ear plugs: ´I figure there isn't a lot you can say about earplugs!´ Wrong! Never despise or deride the small things. One of the best minds in Italy, a professor of Philosophy at the University of Florence, sees earplugs among the greatest inventions...

“They Fall Out”

Consthey fall out & don't block all noise

Boots Disposable Earplugs are okay but not the best earplugs we have ever used. They come in a cardboard box from Boots and inside the box is a little round flip top plastic container with one pair of plugs inside. In the box there are another two pairs of plus. They say they block out all noise...

ProSoft, easy to apply and the shape seems to last

ConsThey slip out and don't effectively block out the ...

I have used earplugs for a few years now and find that the yellow foam ones are the best if you can get hold of them. However, I bought some of the Boots ear plugs which are a sort of pinkinsh / putty colour (a bit non-descript in other words). I found that these plugs were a bit on the soft side...

ProComfortable

ConsDon't cut out noise as much as I would have liked

When having to put up with loud late night student parties near my house and as I was losing sleep (extremely irritating) I decided I wanted to cut out or at least diminish the noise so I decided to try ear plugs. I went to Boots and bought these reasonably priced ear plugs. The plugs were small...

ProRepeat Useage

ConsAs any ear plug "Works Loose or "Falls Out"

At age 63 I have had to wear ear plugs all my adult life after experiencing serious sleep deprivation caused by ongoing night road works in my early 20's. I cannot now sleep properly without them whatever the conditions. Being a Londoner my sleep is mainly disturbed by aeroplanes as it has been...
