I was waiting for a good time to see how the earbuds would reduce noise, and that time came with a birthday party in an indoor playground. The noise was unreal. I had been trying to get my son (he’s eight) to try them out, but he is also touch sensitive, and gave up on trying to get them properly in his ears, saying that they “didn’t work”. I guess they felt too weird in his ears because he typically uses earmuffs, which would have been too bulky for a playground. The noise in the playground started to make him panic and I brought out the buds. Now, he really wanted these in because he was so overwhelmed. The difference was night and day- one minute he was going into a panic and then, like magic, he got them in and literally looked around himself in wonder. He was surprised at how well they worked and was able to go flying around, having a great time. This would never have happened without the buds. He enjoyed the party despite the noise, which improved his quality of life (putting it lightly). The only reason I dropped a star on this was for one small thing. I also purchased the cord (kind of like eyeglass cords), but it was very cheap and was feather-light. What the cord needs is something to hold them on the child so they don’t fall off. This becomes an issue when he takes the off but leaves them around his neck in case loud sounds suddenly erupt. As they are, they easily get caught up in clothes (like shirt collars) and get accidentally tossed off. The cord is so light you would have no idea they fell off. Just a small clasp would do.
All in all, this was a great purchase and was a game changer for my son. I recommend this to other parents or guardians who care for a person with ASD. Thank you so much!
Just what we were looking for! My daughter gets anxious in crowds or noisy places/groups. These knocked down the hum but still allowed her to hear speakers and follow what was happening. It has made things much nicer for her.
My son has extremely sensitive ears that are getting worse as he gets older. He can't go into most stores any more without wearing earplugs because the noise makes him physically ill. He tried many different kinds of earplugs over the years and I must say that these are the best. They are soft and comfortable and easy to put in, and the fact that there are three of them in the package is a real plus. Great product, definitely recommended!
Ordered these for my daughter. These are so discreet noone even knows shes wearing them. She loves them. My son had the ear defenders which are brill but he thinks everyone stares at him while wearing them so I'm ordering another pair off these for him.
My son has very sensitive hearing and often wears earplugs when he is at loud events. From the first time he put them in, they were a perfect fit, extremely comfortable to wear and provided him an effective noise reduction. Would purchase again and again!
