Life changing

My husband is a mega snorer and I am a super light sleeper. I am managing to fall asleep and stay asleep no worries at all. It’s a win win for me.

Excellent hearing protection

My daughter can sleep now
We have extremely noisy neighbours and this is the first time in a few years she has had days and days of good sleep

Noise protect ear buds

I wear these in bed to protect me from noise nuisance. They are the most comfortable I have ever used and I’ve been using them for over 20 years. They keep out sound so much that I even slept through fire engines going to the road behind me, not sure if that is good or not. I’ve bought 2 pairs as I don’t want to get caught out without them. I would definitely recommend them.

Excellent product

By far the best ear plugs I've bought. They are not only comfortable enough to wear all night through but actually do the job of significantly reducing noise.

For sleeping

When these are inserted properly, they are the best ear plugs I've used for sleeping. I have to push them in quite deep so they don't fall out and being a side sleeper, I find them a bit uncomfortable. I'm yet to fall in love with them but happy to persevere.

Outstanding customer service

Sadly, the Bollsen ear plugs did not work for me but I have never experienced such outstanding customer service when it came to return and refund.

Quite good

I work night shifts and as my bedroom is next to the bathroom and above the kitchen, I struggle with household noise. In terms of noise blocking these are a bit better than the foam ones I use, but not sure if they’re better than the silicone ones... I also am a side sleeper and find it irritating when they brush on the pillow as this creates it’s own noise! I think they’re good value as they’re washable/reusable, but in terms of comfort and noise blocking I don’t find them much superior to other earplugs.

Bollsen great product

I do a lot of swimming, and hadn’t really found anything on the market that I could use with confidence, until I purchased the Bollsen ones, not cheap but certainly worth it, the best I’ve ever had, easy to fit inside the ear, nothing gets through excellent product.

Great fit

I bought these as my son has a perforated ear drum and can't get any water in his ear. These are easy to put in and water tight.
Would recommend.

Excellent

Not normally one to leave reviews, however on this occasion its certainly warranted. Lovely as my partner is, she has a tendency to snore which, on certain occasions, could drown out the sound of a high speed train with a tyrannosaurus rex at the wheel. Having tried various earplugs in the past I didn't hold out much hope... after reading the reviews of the Bollsen earplugs I decided to order a pair. The result has been astounding - by far the best noise resistant earplugs I have used. Care needs to be taken when removing as they fit so snug. I now wear them every night without fail and feel like a human being again as opposed to an extra from the Walking Dead. Highly recommended.

Saved my sanity

I moved houses 3 doors down from a church, that rings it’s bellls ever 15 minutes in increasing incriminates, I thought because of the noise act , they would have to stop through the night , how wrong can you be , after many night sat up in tears as I could not take it any more and it’s not like you can take a nap in the afternoon same problem , these have saved my sanity as I can sleep all night , I don’t know how they work they drown out church bells but I can still hear my alarm! I will make sure I never run out of these , thankyou so much for these wonderful ear plugs

Improved more than just my swim!

I’m a life long swimmer - at times a lifeguard, triathlete, and I taught swimming for 16 years. I grew up on the Great Lakes and have always been a water baby. The pandemic kept me from the pool for 18 months and it was the longest I’ve been out of the water since I was born! When I finally got back, I started having trouble with my ears - a combination of pressure and water and it pushed me out of the pool again. I’ve had this issue off and on over the years but more recently it became a huge deterrent. I finally invested in the Bollsen swim ear plugs and it’s not just the freedom with my stroke that has returned to me, but all the wonderful endorphins that come with exercise and - for me - swimming in particular. Thank you for giving my swim back to me.

Help against snoring husband

They are a bit uncomfortable at first, but they mould to your ear after a few uses. I wear them all night every night. They block out husbands snoring and I actually am sleeping better generally. I have also purchased anti snore pillow at same time which is also a help. Would recommend if any noise is keeping you awake. I was getting desperate and they have been a life saver for me, as laying awake all night is no fun for anyone

Side Sleeper

I Googled the best ear plugs for people who sleep on there side and bollsen came up as number 1, so decided to give them a try, I have tried plenty of other brands and they all tend to hurt my ears as the night goes on, bollsen are soft and really comfortable and easy to put in and remove, I live in an apartment on a main road and have struggled sleeping with the noise, but not now I love these ear plugs 10 out of 10 for me

Excellent

Would advise anyone with tinnitus to try these, helps baffle the noise by 70% in my case. Great sleeping plugs and brilliant ones for loud music. Very impressed for something so simple!

I find the ear plugs effective but uncomfortable in the ear if laying on your side for any length of time.

Rethink colour?

Think it would be a good idea to make these in a red or other bright colour so they can be seen at the bottom of a swimming pool when they fall out.

Block out sound very well, really sore to sleep with

They do a very good job at blocking out the sound, so much so that all you can really hear is your blood pulsing through your veins!

However, for me they are really sore to have in my ears whilst sleeping. I'm a side sleeper, that might be why. I want to use them all the time, the reality is I can only use them for a short period in the morning when everyone else is making a racket!

They work really well, and was hoping to sleep with them in through the night, really disappointed because I bought 3 of them. Giving 3 stars because they block the sound tremendously well.

Old man

I needed ear plugs to stop water going into ears whilst showering to avoid repeated infection. I think yourear plugs are the best plugs available. I would have liked different colours to make sure that I do not transfer infection from one side to the other and advice on best way of cleaning and drying the earplugs. Thanks for two sets. Best Wishes Robert

Wonderful product

For reasons I won't go into I have to sleep on a futon in the living room / kitchen. Being quite a light sleeper the noise of the fridge freezer was interfering with my sleep but these wonderful little ear plugs have allowed me to sleep for longer and I awake feeling rested every morning. I even put them in sometimes when I'm awake if the kids are not playing nicely!

Very effective

I have been using Bollsen Hearing Protection to reduce noise from my wife’s snoring. They are comfortable to wear and are effective, allowing me to get undisturbed sleep. However, when I reordered more hearing protection, they came with another aluminium container and I thought that was unneccesary. In my opinion, reorders should be offered, without the case, and thereby reduce the cost.

Good protection.

Very good level of protection and quite comfortable. Only one problem, the second time I went to use them, they were stuck in the canister and no matter how much I tapped it against my palm, they wouldn't come out. In the end, I had to carefully hook them out with a refill from a ballpoint pen.
