If you’re not a fan of foam earplugs or silicone-rubber sleepbuds, then the Ohropax Wax EarPlugs are for you.
The round-shaped earplugs are made from a soft wax and covered with cotton.
The cotton wool is soaked in vaseline and various paraffin waxes, resulting in effective noise-absorbing wax earplugs.
The advantage of these earplugs is that you can insert them easily into your ear, no fiddling or right angle required and the wax simply molds to the shape of your ear for a truly customized fit offering an NRR of 23 dB.
What's more, you can reuse them following the care instructions provided.
For some, the only drawback to the Ohropax earplugs is as they are made of Vaseline and various paraffin waxes, they can leave a sticky residue in your ear post-usage.
Whilst this is not such an inconvenience when you're at home, this can be a bit of a stickler if you’re traveling or away from home.
If the sticky wax remains don’t ruffle your feathers, go ahead and enjoy the silence!
