Noise canceling ear plugs for a perfect night's sleep


It does not matter whether you are traveling for business, leisure or in your own bed at home, a good night's sleep helps us all to lead healthier, happier and more productive lives.

As such, the ability to eliminate or at the very least reduce distracting and often annoying noises around us is invaluable.

Whether it is a snoring partner, noisy neighbors, traffic or some other distraction, being able to tune those sounds out allows us to fall into, and remain in, a deep, restorative sleep so much easier.

Sleeping with the latest noise canceling headphones is not really a viable option especially if you sleep on your side, and the roll, insert, hold foam ear plugs that many airlines provide to their First and Business Class passengers in their amenity kits not only cheapens the overall experience, but they can only be used a few times at most and are unreliable to say the least.

That's where Supceat's ear plugs come in. Made of soft silicone, the ear plugs fit snugly into the ear without protruding at all, enabling users to sleep on their side without any discomfort.

They are washable, available in a variety of colors and, as of press time, can be purchased in a set of two with one pair slightly larger than the other.

They also come with a small case which is handy if you travel and helps to make sure you do not lose them.

According to Supceat's documentation, they reduce noise by up to -25 decibels so not only are they ideal for sleeping, but can also be used in noisy work environments or anywhere else you would like some peace and quiet.

It would not take too much imagination to see airlines adding these, or similar, to their in-flight amenity kits, and even certain hotels offering them to guests. It would certainly be an upgrade and a more sustainable option than the foam ones currently being offered.

This is the first review in a new series of short videos that Travel News Asia is doing about products that we buy to help either improve the travel experience, life in general, or both! We do hope that you find them useful.

If it's from Hong Kong, it's probably recording your dreams,and sending them to the CCP.

I don't even need them in the daytime let alone during the night. We have a perfect silence of all noise. Summertime is just the song of the crickets. When we look out of our windows most nights we have a clear view of the moon and the stars.

Ear plugs to promote a good night's sleep?

Tell that to the marines!

Sleeplessness is often not caused by noise.

Loud music and traffic noise often can induce sound sleep.

Can ear plugs prevent emotional disturbances to promote sound sleep ?

Sound advice!

There is nothing in our street except large houses with pretty flower gardens and quiet neighbors. Envy is so troublesome for you. 12:12 pm and the silence is golden. Puzzled, I guess your vending machines must be very old and noisy. I haven't come across those. Why would they be noisy?

Noise pollution is a very serious problem for many, especially in big cities. Drives neighbors to attack and kill each other.

Silence is important for life. In Yellowstone Park, there is a "silent cathedral" in the big Redwoods, where people can enjoy silence except for nature. Signs requesting visitors not to talk.
