Our young children and toddlers play and learn every day. Just as well. Unfortunately, one in eight children suffers permanent damage to their hearing, because children’s ears are extra sensitive to noise.

A great many children experience difficulties concentrating at school, while doing homework, or while reading. Children with ADHD, ADD, or a form of autism, can also benefit from earplugs. Research has shown that wearing Pluggies Kids improves concentration.
To prevent earache while flying
Many kids have earaches during the takeoff and landing of an airplane. Pluggies Kids earplugs improve pressure regulation in the ears, thus preventing earache. In addition, you can sleep peacefully when you wear earplugs while flying.
AlpineAcousticFilters™ – Greater comfort for your child
Pluggies Kids earplugs are equipped with special Alpine Acoustic Filters. These filters provide optimal noise attenuation, but still allow your child to hear ambient sounds sufficiently. Thus, there is no sense of isolation and your child can still follow conversations.
By wearing Pluggies Kids earplugs during flights, unpleasant pressure on the eardrums during take off and landing is regulated. The filters operate like valves and ensure gradual and constant pressure equilibrium between the external environment and the middle ear. Thus, the Eustachian tube has sufficient time to acclimatise to pressure variations.
Lifespan and cleaning
The lifespan of the earplugs depends on frequency of use. Keeping the earplugs clean will extend the lifespan. The earplugs can be cleaned with lukewarm water and soap.
