There are different types of ear plugs for differnt uses, for instance foam plugs will not help at all if you are using them to keep water out of your ears while swimming. If worn correctly foam plugs will protect you ears from noise, but the attenuation is not repeatable, and if the plugs move they may not provide any attenuation.
Custom earplugs for noise
These earplugs will protect your hearing even in extremely noisy enviroments. In most enviromets the user can still comunicate with
colleague without removing the earplug (as would be done with foam). The noise reduction can be tested by an audiologist, and the reduction will be repeatable each time you wear them. They will not slip out by mistake, which is a huge problem with foam or plastic plugs, specialy if you have small ear canals. They usually are connected to each other by a string that can be clipped to your clothing.
