$10 from amazon for radians brand stuff. I use it for shooting works great and only 10 min setup like you said.

u/DerkhaDerkha · 29 pointsr/videos
  1. Buy this from amazon.

  2. Follow instructions.

>I have a 2 year old.

I found your problem right there.

I have blackout curtains, these earplugs, and a fan. That is usually enough in combination to sleep from when I get home around 4 or 5 to 1 or 2.

u/petrucci666 · 7 pointsr/Guitar

No need to spend that much on earplugs. I bought these for about $10 and they work very well - comfortable and protect your ears.


u/Blindstar · 5 pointsr/explainlikeimfive

These custom earplugs are awesome because they're flat on the outside and they're exactly the shape of your ear inside! You just mix the two putties and let it cure in your ear for like 20 minutes... then you have a set of perfectly molded custom earplugs!

u/halfdeadmoon · 4 pointsr/LifeProTips

custom molding is cheap for earplugs

This should work for hearing aids as well.

u/InboxZero · 3 pointsr/guns

I have no idea how effective they'd be but amazon sells these self molded ones

u/sleepylegsjackson · 3 pointsr/motorcycles

I bought a pair of Radian Custom Earplugs and used this tutorial to make custom fittings for my headphones. They block out a lot of sound and you can make them fit with almost any set of headphones.

u/KornontheKolb · 3 pointsr/Fitness

I have these too. They were great but I had to constantly adjust them because they would not stay in my ear.

I bought these and now my problem has been solved.

Custom molded earplugs

u/OreoGaborio · 3 pointsr/motorcycles

Agreed... OP, do yourself a huge favor... These are 10 bucks shipped. Not "cool" but will make riding (and hearing your children/grandchildren) much more enjoyable.

You'll still hear EVERYTHING you need & want to, but it'll cut down on the harsh abuse your ears are subjected to by wind noise and exhaust pulses.

I just bought some for myself and my girlfriend.

u/inias_knayvid · 3 pointsr/Nightshift

Custom molded ear plugs.
I use these everyday. If molded properly, they block out almost all noise.

u/studer391 · 3 pointsr/guns
u/theforgottenpeen · 2 pointsr/sleep

Those are two I use (first link I use for on the road, cheap and disposable, try these first; second are pretty pricey but more noise cancellation, they do insert into your ears though, so you might just want to stick with the first link). Theyre even great for swimming to avoid swimmers ear. I'm still doing a lot of uni work and my sleep is imperative for me for athletics and school.

u/SolaireOfCaestora · 2 pointsr/motorcycles

Alright dude, get the blue ones. These things are cheap and work wonders, very comfortable.

u/vonshavingcream · 2 pointsr/Bass

i'm at the point now where my molded ones are so quiet, that I put them in almost instantly when entering any type of venue. I love setting up my gear in almost complete silence.

my first pair of molded ones I made myself with an $11 pair of earbuds from Target and this stuff that is used to make your own earplugs.

They worked amazing for $22 and some elbow grease. After about a year of that, I went to the ear doctor and got molds made and got some real ones. worth every penny. And I still keep those $22 ones in my bag as backups.

u/setyte · 2 pointsr/dogs

For like 10$ you can buy earplug putty to get a cheap custom fit earplug. It helped me maintain my sanity during the early days of my puppy whining. Because they are custom molded they don't go in too far or fall out so they work well for sleeping. They are also good for making custom headphones on the cheap.

u/jd3p0 · 2 pointsr/ems

Even if you don't want music, put them in. I wear Wireless Motorola ones and if no music, either white noise our nothing at all.

I've also got molded ear plugs for really annoying partners that won't let me chart.

Radians Custom Molded Earplugs, Blue

u/phobiac · 2 pointsr/Frugal

If you really want to save order a pair of Radians. I've had mine for well over 3 months now and see no reason I won't have them for at least 3 months more. I've used them almost every workday since getting them and done nothing to maintain them beyond the occasional cleaning.

u/42e1 · 2 pointsr/DSPD

I've tried a lot of different ear plugs.

The three in the upper left are reusable. The drawback is that they jam into your ear if you lay on your side. They also tend to be sound-reducing in nature, rather than sound-proofing. People wear them to concerts to make the sound level more comfortable, but they aren't great for sleeping.

The silicon version in the bottom left is for swimming. They're pliable, and can be shaped to fit inside of your ear canal. They had reasonable sound-proofing quality, but they're sticky, and kinda weird/gross to put in and take out in the morning.

The four in the upper right are all disposable. I had to try a lot of different styles before I found the ones that fit my ear canals the best. I settled on the bright orange ones in the far upper right, but everyone's ears will differ.

I use them off and on, especially during the summer when people are mowing their lawn at 9 in the morning, or if my family is staying over, for instance. I tend to re-use a single pair quite a bit.


I'm going to try this product. I'll let you know how it works, but it'll be a few weeks before I get it and try it out.

u/mirage2k6 · 1 pointr/motorcycles

I use the disposable ones for short day trips, but for extended multi-day trips, I use molded ones. They don't irritate my ears as much.

u/dogs_are_best · 1 pointr/guns

These work well for earplugs, if you're looking for just plugs/plugs to wear under muffs.

u/theJoosty1 · 1 pointr/motorcycles

Yes. Buy these. If you want audio, push an earbud in the putty while you're molding it and cut out a hole for the sound when they're solid. You could also use these with bone conducting headphones like I do. Bone conducting headphones actually sound much better and louder when you have earplugs in.

u/livevitcelfer · 1 pointr/Fitness

I got the Beats Wireless and combined it with Radians Custom mold and the results are fantastic. They used to fallout of my ears when jogging, but now they stay on perfectly allowing me to just jog. Sweat isn't a problem either. Check pic 1 and pic 2

EDIT: I used to have the Jaybirds. I hated the way they felt on my head. Always hard to put on.

u/CUB4N · 1 pointr/motorcycles

I just started using ear plugs while riding. I commute about 30 minutes a day to work on highways averaging 70mph. At those speeds depending on the helmet you have, you'll be getting about 100dB which is equivalent to a live concert or jack hammer. Constant exposure to these high decibel ranges will cause deafness. I was shocked at how much the ear plugs made a difference but I could still hear traffic and other things. I wore them around the house to get a feel for them before I took them out to the road too. I ended up purchasing these earplugs that are custom molded and only $10. One thing I did notice after riding was that it was harder to hear the engine (not impossible to hear), and I found myself speeding more often. Keep this in mind while riding because it doesnt sound like your going as fast. (I have a nose shield in my full face helmet that blocks my speedo, so I'm not always looking down at how fast I'm going.)

EDIT: The article that convinced me to get ear plugs.

u/thesteelerfan18 · 1 pointr/motorcycles

Easier method, just find a pair of headphones with decent enough sound quality and make a custom mold around it. I'm trying this out in a few days.

u/RhinoMan2112 · 1 pointr/headphones

Are you buying them just to block out sound? If so $100 is way more than you need to spend.

I use foam earplugs for blocking out sound when I sleep which are perfect because they fall out while I'm sleeping (so I can get to sleep quietly and then hear my alarm clock), but you can buy special made sleeping plugs for cheapo. You can even get a custom mold for 12 bucks.

u/mavam · 1 pointr/motorcycles

I have these which are DIY custom molded:

They work and fit but the one issue I have with them is that they are so dense that the vibrations I pick up, cause them to vibrate inside my ear just enough to drive me insane. I've tried moistening them to reduce this effect but it hasn't worked. I wonder if the true custom plugs do this or if it's just because I have a small amount of buffeting.

Anyhow, since they were cheap I don't care and I just keep buying the cheapo foam plugs that work well.

u/brettro · 1 pointr/motorcycles

How do a professionally-made set of custom plugs compare to the DIY custom alternative such as these? I've used a pair of them for the past few years and they've been comfortable but don't know how the quality compares.

u/occamsquattro · 1 pointr/running

I posted this elsewhere but it didn't receive much attention. I think it's worth repeating:

I saved TONS of money on mine by creating custom headphones. Here's what I did. Buy some of this. I used some headphones that came with my cell phone. Take the rubber "buds" (the part that goes in your ear) off.

  1. Mix the two parts of the silicone together and press it into your ear.

  2. Next press the ear bud into the silicone as if you were using them normally.

  3. Allow the silicone to harden for ten minutes.

  4. Remove the custom buds, and cut the extra silicone from the speaker opening to let the sound through.

    This cost me zero for the headphones, and like 10 dollars for the silicone. So I made custom earphones that will never fall out and are perfectly comfortable for a grand total of....10 dollars.
u/Daph · 1 pointr/motorcycles

I got a custom molded earplug kit. Fits great under the helmet and probably the most comfortable earplugs I've ever used

u/Jboyes · 1 pointr/motorcycles

Get some of these custom-molded earplugs. (and read my other comment in this thread.)

u/Then_I_got_rabies · 1 pointr/Nightshift

Custom molded earplugs are the bomb.

u/seattle_dilettante · 1 pointr/motorcycles

I used the highest NRR pack from earplug superstore. I found several pairs that worked really well and several that didn't. Worth it to try.

The foams I use are more comfortable than custom. Because custom are harder material, any external pressure on them can be painful and/or break the seal.

If you're seriously considering custom, I would pick up some Radians custom moldable plugs. Unless you have unusually big ears, you can use half the material provided so you can have a do-over or a second set.

The product pictures depict filling the entire ear flap but this is totally unnecessary for noise attenuation. It's only the material inside the ear canal that does that. The rest just gives you a bit more to tug on for removal.

I recommend that you mold them with your helmet on. I made them with my helmet off and found the helmet put pressure on my ear breaking the seal and making them very uncomfortable to wear. I ended up trimming them down until they fit without interference but again, I prefer the simplicity and better performance of foam.

u/Dirty_Socks · 1 pointr/lifehacks

If you want to go a step better, you can make earbuds that won't fall out by using custom-molded earplugs! You can get a mixture which solidifies after you put it in your ears. With the same process (or with a drill), you can get comfortable and noise canceling earbuds.

u/murd3rmouse · 1 pointr/misophonia


These work great for me. Very isolating and comfortable enough to wear all night.

I suggest you watch some vids on youtube about molding them so you don't waste a pair like I did. But once I got them right they are perfect.

Good sound and the molds make a great fit.

u/Stemor61 · 1 pointr/motorcycles

I use [these Radian Custom Molded earplugs] ( I originally was going to go with SureFires since they're popular among range shooters and other motorcyclists (judging from some of the Amazon reviews). I went with these for a more custom fit; they're pretty comfortable despite the harder silicone and they're really low maintenance (a big plus for me).

For a disposable earplug, I'd use these Mack's earplugs. I used to work in a machine shop and I wore these most of the day. Pretty comfortable and they block an insane amount of noise. EDIT: I should clarify with some of the newer reviews on this, people are saying they're not quite the same as the old ones so proceed with caution if you plan to look into these.

u/RugerRedhawk · 1 pointr/HomeImprovement

Could also consider custom fit options like this:

Or a set made by an ear doctor, I don't think they cost much.

u/[deleted] · 1 pointr/Meditation
u/luminousfleshgiant · 1 pointr/HeadphoneAdvice

Buy any pair of decent in earbuds. Instead of using the foam inserts that they come with, buy a moldable earplug kit (like this one) and create your own. They will fit perfectly without pain for long periods of use and will be extremely secure.

Here's a video of someone doing it. And if your molded earbud needs any repairs, since they're silicon, you can use any silicon sealant to fix them. Like this one.

u/yobilltechno · 1 pointr/audioengineering

Were they radians. I actually got a pair of the Alpine plugs and stuck the filters in the radians to make some poormans fitted plugs.

u/VPI_1991 · 1 pointr/medschool

Go with these. It's what I've been using. They custom mold so they are some of the most comfortable ear plugs I've had. They block noise extremely well. You can easily wear them for hours on end and not have any pain in your ears

u/pumpkinbundtcake · 1 pointr/headphones

These are pretty great. I used them a few years ago. If you don't want to mess around with mold-your-own, those Etymotics /u/docodine suggested are a good choice.

u/NiceGuysFinishLast · 0 pointsr/BuyItForLife

As I said twice now, it's a kit... You do it yourself.

There is no "place". It's a manufacturer. Sheesh. Reading comprehension.
