There are many types of hearing protectors, so you can wear the ones that fit your style and are the most comfortable. Choose a great color or design that matches what you’re wearing.

Tips for wearing hearing protectors

  • Practice wearing your hearing protectors around the house to get used to the fit.
  • Bring an extra pair of earplugs or earmuffs when you go to a concert, game, or other noisy event. Share them with your friends so they can protect their hearing, too.

To wear foam ear plugs, follow these easy steps:

1. Roll the earplug up into a small, thin snake with your fingers. 2. Pull the top of your ear up and back with your opposite hand to straighten out your ear canal. The rolled-up earplug should slide right in, with most of it filling the canal. 3. Hold the earplug in with your finger. Count to 20 or 30 out loud while waiting for the plug to expand and fill the ear canal. Your voice will sound muffled when the plug has made a good seal. Check the fit by placing your hands over your ears. If sounds are much more muffled with your hands in place, the earplug may not have sealed properly.
