Thanks so much to all of you who ordered, we're extremely appreciative. Please do let us know how well they work for you so that we can respond to your feedback.

@fullmonte: There are a few answers to your question, some of which are nastier than others. I use mine for studying and blocking out the sound of ambulances when I'm sleeping, and I personally just make sure to use a Q-tip before I put them in. That works great for me and I haven't had any problems with ear wax on my ear plugs. The flip side to that, as far as I've heard, is that ear wax can be pretty easily picked off from our ear plugs after you take them out. It sounds gross, but given that one of the materials used to make mighty plugs is beeswax (pretty incredible, I know), I've been told that ear wax simply doesn't make mighty plugs nasty in the same way that ear wax affects other ear plugs. Whatever the reason or remedy, most of our customers find that each pair lasts for months at a time, and unofficially each pair is good for an average of 35-60 uses or more. For $1.95 that's not half bad.

@Motomo: Sorry to hear about those expensive custom ear plugs-- it's probably not much consolation, but at least you won't have to make that mistake again. Our plugs block every bit as well as custom made ear plugs because they ARE custom ear plugs-- every pair molds and fits to your own ear. I suspect that you'll be really pleased, because if there's any demographic that likes our ear plugs better than motorcycle riders it's shooters-- hunters, skeet shooters and members of the armed forces constantly give us rave reviews. I don't shoot myself, but I suspect that it has something to do with the fact that our ear plugs are both more comfortable and more effective than even the best ear muffs that are carried at gun shops while being a fraction of the price. Enjoy your mighty plugs, and please do let us know what you think of them.

Thanks again from all of us here at Beneficial Products Inc. and www.earplugsonline.com.

Everyone's different, so YMMV... in my case, I never encountered this problem. Keep in mind that these don't go in as deep as a regular earplug-after pulling them out (i.e., they're molded to my ear) they're about half the length of a foam earplug. It does go in a bit, but it's mostly spread around the entrance- not sure if it makes sense or not. I guess one can adjust how far they want to push them in, I have small ear canals so for me this works.

The blue colour gets "dirtier", especially since you'd have to warm them up before putting them in. Don't know whether it's the beewax, or my luck, but no ear infections here, even after wearing the same pair each day for several months...

Thank you 32vsnake, fullmonte, and JR356 for your orders! (And thank you Ko for helping me answer questions.) Does anyone else have any questions that they'd like answered, or does anyone else out there who has already been using our ear plugs have anything to add?

I have a question!
Do these earplugs work by expanding into position after rolling them down to size like traditional foamies?
The photos look like they don't go very deep, nor is the disc shape conducive to the "thumb & forefinger roll" compression technique.
How is the custom fit achieved?

@Guano11: The short answer to your question is no-- mighty plugs are literally nothing like any other ear plugs on the market. They don't expand (they aren't foam), and although the thumb and forefinger roll technique will work it isn't necessary. All you really have to do is warm the ear plugs up and push them in as far as you'd like-- they'll seal completely, but won't expand and create discomfort by putting pressure on your ear canal where it shouldn't be. It works like a plug rather than like a balloon. The disc shape is just the form they come in-- with heat they'll mold to anything.

If the above didn't help, I'll try to rephrase a bit: mighty plugs work by softening with heat and forming to your ear canal as they are inserted. The texture of mighty plugs after they've been kneaded for about 10 seconds is quite similar to soft clay. After warming them, all you have to do is push this soft material into your ear canal and it will mold into a custom fitting form. The photos are also a bit deceiving-- each ear plug is large enough that a fairly sizable portion will remain outside your ear, but they also will go quite deep into your ear canal if you'd like them to. Mighty plugs are so much better than traditional earplugs because they totally form to your ear canal and seal it, rather than just expanding slightly, blocking up a larger space without creating a seal, and making your ears hurt as a result. If you've been using cheap foam plugs all this time you'll really be astounded by the difference.

Does this help at all?

Yes, I should've ordered more.

Very helpful!
I must say, however, that stuffing a clay-like substance into my ear canal doesn't sound like it'd outperform my favorite foamies.
Nonetheless, you've convinced me to give 'em a try -- but fair warning: as a motorcyclist, aviator, and a guy who sleeps nightly with foamies , I'm a bit of an earplug conisseu...conniso... conisu... snob.

Preparing to be astounded.....

I'm in for 5 sets.

A couple travel packs and a sample set. Every day riding with my current Helmet (Arai XD) can get bothersome as the helmet is quite loud. I look forward to a comfortable ear plug that reduces such noise so effectively. Every once in a while I find myself waking up at night to unusual but repetitive noises, the foamies work well enough, but these should kick ass . I'm sure my Mom will like these too (Dad snores LOUD). I'll pass on the good word once I try them out.
