- Ear protection at the pool
It is strongly recommended to wear earplugs designed for the pool and aquatic activities, because ears are highly sensitive to water. Repeated swims can cause nuisances that may lead to complications or even cause severe ear problems, such as acute otitis externa, the formation of an earwax blocage, infection, inflammation, an unpleasant blocked ears sensation, ear buzzing, tinnitus, echoes, vertigo, eczema, and even mycosis and dizziness.
- Reusable and affordable
By simply rinsing your earplugs under clean water following each use, you can keep them for a very long time without affecting their efficiency. Earplugs are sold in hearing clinics, pharmacies, parapharmacies, and shops specializing in aquatic sports, and they are inexpensive given their long-term effectiveness. Your hearing aid acoustician can also have a set of earplugs custom made for your ear.
- Soft and comfortable
Earplugs designed especially for the pool are highly flexible, and therefore very comfortable, for recreational and professional swimmers both. With earplugs there to protect the ear, training becomes a breeze. In the case of sport competitions (swimming, waterskiing, windsurfing, etc.), earplugs should be combined with a swimming cap to prevent the earplugs falling out due to speed and sudden movements. Though earplugs rarely fall out, it is best not to take any chances in order to emerge the victor!
- Handy and easy to use
Swimmer earplugs are very small and easy to use given how quickly they can be inserted. They adjust to the shape of your ears without any need to force them into the ear canal. Once inserted, the earplugs become one with your ears and prevent water from coming in, without impeding your hearing or causing ear pain.
- Discreet protection
Earplugs are far more discreet than ear protection bands; they are ideal for those who want to protect their ears in a way that is neither cumbersome or unattractive. Their discretion is especially remarquable given that they protect against interference noise up to 24 dB, which enables users to hear their surroundings and the conversations around them clearly.
