Snoring keeping you awake?

Snoring keeping you awake?

You crawl into bed, snuggle into the covers, tuck your favourite pillow under your head and prepare to nod off into a blissful deep and restful sleep… or… NOT!

Your partner has achieved this goal a few micro-seconds before you and is now deep in sleep and snoring at Snoring 60 – 90 decibels (somewhere between a vacuum cleaner at 70 db and a chainsaw at 100 db!)

Do you resort to softly and politely, shouting in their ear to “Roll Over!”, hoping the change of position may give you a few minutes peace? Do you gently and lovingly nudge them in the back again hoping their semi-conscious brain will pick up the “not-so-subtle” hint to move with the hopeful result of cessation of snoring (at least for another few minutes)? Do you pick up your favourite pillow and head for the not so comfortable couch thin blanket in hand?

What about another solution?

Sleep earplugs.

You may feel helpless at changing your partners snoring problem but you can take action and comfortably reduce the noise level down to a level that will be compatible with your sound sleep. A Noise Reduction Rating of NRR28, will drop the decibel level of the sound to 62 db which is as loud as a normal human speech.

If your partner’s snoring is frequent and loud you may be suffering from secondary sleep damage with your interrupted sleep pattern. You would not be alone as this is affecting millions of people. Irritability, poor concentration and poor work performance, accidents, health issues, depression, ageing, poor memory, weight gain, poor judgment and even death can be the outcome and symptoms of transient or chronic insomnia caused by poor sleep.

What are some earplug options?

  1. Disposable – cheap but may not be effective enough or comfortable enough to achieve your goal
  2. Lab-made Earplugs – re-useable and custom fitted, lower cost in the long run! 
  3. Industrial Earplugs – may have a very high noise reduction but may also filter out too much noise eliminating your ability to hear voices, crying babies, alarm clocks or smoke detectors to name a few.

Looks Like Option 2 is your best bet!

    HELP!!!! I can’t sleep with my dogs and husband who snore like a three freight trains running ALL NIGHT. I have tried all the store bought ear plugs, none of them work. Do these really block out snoring!?
