When you live with Meniere’s disease, which causes hearing loss, your hearing is always at risk. It’s important to take steps to protect your ears at all costs.

Foam earplugs are a fantastic and inexpensive way to protect your hearing, but many people don’t know how to use them properly. And if you don’t put them in correctly, you aren’t actually protecting yourself or getting the advertised decibel reduction.

In the video above, I demonstrate the proper way to insert and remove foam earplugs safely and effectively!

Earplug Links and Resources:

Eargasm Foam Earplugs: Eargasm recently launched these foam earplugs and I absolutely love them.

They are comfortable, rated for 32 db reduction, and the least expensive foam earplugs I’ve ever found. Plus, you can use the offer code mindover for an additional 10% off!

Other Earplugs I Recommend (Foam and Silicone):

Eargasm High Fidelity Earplugs: (Use code mindover for 10% off) If you’ve followed me for a while, you know I’m a huge fan of high-fidelity earplugs. Unlike foam earplugs, high fidelity earplugs lower the decibel level and volume of your environment without distorting or muffling the quality.

They work incredibly well for concerts, parties, or any other loud environment where you actually want to be able to hear what’s going on, or carry on conversations. Just keep in mind that they offer a lesser decibel reduction than foam earplugs. And while there are other quality brands, Eargasm has been my favorite for a while now.

NOTE: Eargasm sent me these earplugs for free to test out and to make this how-to video. I receive many free products (and purchase many products too) but only ever end up writing about a very small percentage of them that work well for me, that I personally stand behind, and actually use myself.
