  • 1/16/2009 Very good, but prefer Ear Seals by Mack's

    4 Review stars By Rick

    These plugs are wonderfully comfortable, but a bit difficult to put in because they are so soft. I prefer Mack's Ear Seals -- the best ear plug on the market for swimmers. They have a firmer stem that makes them easier to put in, and are connected to a long string that makes them easier to keep track of. And they are still very comfortable. I use the product solely to keep out noise so that I can hear my SwimP3 music system while I swim (one mile, three times a week).

  • 7/22/2016 Use if cool water hurts your ears

    4 Review stars By Jim

    They say not to wet them before you insert, but it's sure easier and the seal is better if they are wet first. I even use them to mow the lawn or go to sleep on neighborhood party nights.

  • 12/10/2013 Earplugs purple

    4 Review stars By Joan K.

    These ear plugs are very good to use in the pool. These fit in the ear canal snugly. I am able to hear very loud noise if needed while where them. If I don't insert the plug correctly I am able
    to find it floating.

    4 Review stars By NIKKI

    for my 4 year old daughter. she said they work



  • 5/10/2019 soft, effective

    4 Review stars By harmony

    I've tried many different earplugs and earbuds in the water. These are my favorite so far. They are soft and easy on the ear. The tree shape means that they seal my ears well. They have a long shank (also very flexible) that allows me to insert them deeply, still be able to remove them, and since the shank is flexible my swim cap doesn't add extra pressure. In fact I can't feel them in my ears once inserted.

    I knocked off one star because water still gets into the outer part of my ear canal. At first I thought these were ineffective. But actually the water only goes into a tiny fraction of the canal. I have the sensation of water entering my ears, but once it pools there, I no longer feel it. And when I take the earplugs out at the end of the swim, no water actually penetrated to the ear drums.

    Also I bought and am using the clear or colorless version of these. Next time I will purchase the blue ones, because once I drop one of these, it's very difficult to find! It becomes virtually invisible. My vanity chose the clear, but once my swim cap is in place, no one can see into my ears anyway!

    I highly recommend these. And for the price, they're a no-brainer.

    I have small ear canals and these go in great and the soft material does not hurt my ears.



  • 8/20/2014 Keeps most water out

    4 Review stars By Slow Poke

    Easy to put in and take out.
    Kept most water out, but not all.
    Excellant at reducing noise levels, both at the pool, and doing yardwork.

  • 5/20/2014 Great earplugs!

    4 Review stars By LSD

    These bright purple earplugs work great keeping the water out of my ear. Two pair to a small plastic carrying case that fits right into my swim bag. I don't think I'll ever use the silicone kind again.

  • 6/7/2013 They work well

    4 Review stars By martin h.

    I like the Mack's blue/yellow ones over these, but these work well too. The material for these plugs are kinda soft, so inserting them are difficult sometimes.

  • 2/16/2013 Nice change

    4 Review stars By Lilsurfergirl

    I use these for swimming laps. They are great for keeping water out; usually I go home somewhat deaf from water getting in. A little tough to get in sometimes but worth the effort. I'd buy them again...

  • 1/1/2013 Comfortable, water-resistant fit

    4 Review stars By Delaware Swimmer

    I swim daily in an Endless Pool, which has a lot of turbulence. The Aqua Block Earplugs stand up to this sidewash and their daily use.

  • 12/14/2012 Tried them all, this is best

    4 Review stars By sunnyq

    I have to use plugs not only for backstroke but freestyle as well.
    I have tried many but these are both easy to insert, and easily adjustable to the ear. They are also light and comfortable in position. I can still hear starter's commands, even though they keep the water completely out.
    I like the clear rather than the colored ones. They don't look like purple studs in your ear. They are easy to lose so I always have a backup pair.

  • 12/13/2012 Its good

    I like that it prevents water from entering my ears during back floats.

  • 11/27/2012 Suspect at first

    4 Review stars By David

    I had used the Mack's silicone ear plugs in the past and really liked them, but for some reason just stopped using plugs at all. Honestly, I was looking around Swimoutlet to see what else I 'needed' to get my order over $50 for free shipping and stumbled across these earplugs. I've seen others use them but didn't really see how they could stay in, but alas, they work out pretty well. I have swam with them twice, the first time one of them wiggled out, the second time I put the plugs in while my ears were dry and they worked better.

  • 3/24/2012 I thought I needed ear plugs...

    4 Review stars By Paula P.

    Here is the deal: the ear plugs are too big for my ears. I am not a tiny person, nor a giant ear'ed dude. I can't screw these in and make them stay! and i can not think of a way to make them smaller.

  • 3/6/2012 good plugs

    4 Review stars By Charles

    soft silicone seals well. Take your time to insert them properly and they work well. I would recommend the purple instead of the clear. If you drop one in the pool, you may lose the clear one for good (can't see it well)

  • 9/4/2011 Easy to use - great fit

    4 Review stars By Sue

    I've always worn earplugs for swimming to mitigate ear infections and these are my favorites. They are easy to use, fun purple color, they always fit and are a great value.
