Earplugs for small ears needed!

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hi all,
My girlfriend wants some earplugs for our flight to New York in a few weeks. She has tried the normal yellow foam earplugs (like these) and the Etymotic ER-20's, both of which are too big for her small ears!

So, short of getting custom plugs made (which isn't really worth it for 2 flights), what are her options? I have seen childrens earplugs and self-mouldable disposable earplugs for sale online, but have no idea whether these would be suitable.
Pink earplugs preferred to go with her handbag...

Thanks in advance.

Try different brands of the foam earplugs, as some will ROLL up smaller than others. Also, look for plugs which are tapered on one end, as they will be easier to insert.

Earplugs for small ears

Check these out: Mack's SafeSound Jr say they're for smaller ear canals. Also LaserLite and MaxLite. http://www.snorestore.co.uk/contents.../d13_foam.html
Personally I use Mack's Pillow Soft for travelling (and keeping out my partner's snores) - from the same website.

You should be able to find small diameter ear plugs at the chemist or Health and Safety equipment suppliers. I found some at the local chemist.

Thanks for all the replies.
We are going to try these (as recommended by a couple of people on another forum), but if they're not suitable I'll try and find the Mack's SafeSound Jr earplugs in the UK. Failing that we'll do a tour of the local chemists and see what we can find.

You should PM Romanee, he has stated he has small ear canals.
