I have been using ear plugs for sleep for 30 years, first EAR Classic and then 3M EAR Yellow Neons.  Although they get good ratings, they weren't always comfortable, didn't block noise terribly well, and lost their sponginess in about 3 days.  I recently read some on-line reviews on earplugs, and found Moldex Softies 6600 were rated as most comfortable for sleep.  I bought a box of 200 for $29 on Amazon, which is $8 more than the Yellow Neons. They are terrific! They are completely comfortable, block noise very well, and a pair lasts over a week. I recommend them very highly.  I would try contacting Moldex-Metric, Inc. for a sample.

I am qualified to answer all questions related to the diagnosis and rehabilitative treatment of hearing and balance disorders. This includes evaluation of hearing and balance, counseling, amplification (hearing aids and assistive devices), tinnitus (noises in head) evaluation and management, cochlear implants, and audiology in general.


I started my career as a hearing instrument specialist (on a trainee license) in 1998. After almost 2 years, I decided that I needed to pursue higher education if I was to provide the best care to hearing impaired patients that I could. In 2007, I completed my Doctor of Audiology and have been providing audiological care for almost 5 years. I have vestibular, cochlear implant, and pediatric experience along with prescribing, fitting, and verification of hearing aid amplification as part of comprehensive hearing loss rehabilitation.
