Alpine SleepSoft earplugs feature an SNR of 25 dB on average. Disturbing environmental noises are thus masked. However, you will still hear much louder noises. Of course, they will be less audible. Many people find it simpler to fall asleep and wake up while wearing earplugs. Your alarm clock, doorbell, or children can still be heard.
Snoring sounds can be excessively loud, even exceeding 95 decibels. It's as loud as a rock concert! Even if you wear earplugs, you will most likely hear this type of snoring. It makes no difference which earplugs you wear.
If you want the most noise reduction possible, we recommend visiting your local ear care specialist for custom-made earplugs. Their advantage is that they have a flawless fit because they are an identical replica of your ear canal and totally close the ears.
The conduction of sound takes place in two ways: through air and via bone. Our skull also picks up sonic vibrations. This is called bone conduction. Via bone conduction our eardrum vibrates, because of which we perceive sound; we can hear it. Therefore, sound can never be blocked out completely, just by blocking the ear canal.
Alpine Hearing Protection has won the Red Dot Award for the design of its latest earplugs. The jury of this prestigious design price applauded the “high quality and the innovative ability” of the earplugs.
Twenty years of experience have allowed Alpine to develop a perfect new earplug model. The extremely well thought-out and extensively tested shape of the earplugs, provides a natural flat absorption and a great fit.
The special acoustic filters in SleepSoft earplugs reduce troublesome and harmful noise, which hinders a good night’s sleep. Snoring sounds and environmental noise are blocked, enabling most people to fall asleep more easily and to enjoy uninterrupted sleep. The special filters prevent a sense of isolation from the outside world. The sounds of the alarm clock, doorbell, alarm, or a crying baby remain sufficiently audible. SleepSoft earplugs are very suitable for use at home, while study-ing, or while staying in a hotel or at a camping site.
SleepSoft earplugs have an average attenuation (SNR) of 25 dB. Disturbing sounds will be muffled due to these earplugs, therefore falling asleep will be easier and they prevent from waking up too easy. You will still be able to hear some of your surroundings, for example you’ll still be able to hear your alarm or your kids.
Snoring sounds usually have a very high sound level. With SleepSoft earplugs you will muffle a large part of the snoring sounds, with as result that falling asleep will be more easy and keep you from continuously waking up. It is not possible to mute the snoring sounds completely. Due to bone conduction a part of the sound vibrations slip past and will always enter your hearing.
The special design of SleepSoft earplugs provides extra noise attenuation and a very comfortable fit. That is due to the unique AlpineThermoShape material, an innovation from Alpine. This material adapts to the shape of your ears, thus the earplugs fit perfectly. There is no sense of pressure on your ears. ATS contains no silicone, thus causing no allergic reactions.
SleepSoft are the only sleeping earplugs on the market with super soft filters that will have you sleeping like a log. However, if you find the earplugs somewhat too long, you can cut off part of the filter/stem without any problems.
Alpine has developed an-easy-to use cleaning tool to remove earwax from the earplugs. By keeping the earplugs clean, they keep working optimally and last longer.
The lifespan of the earplugs depends on the frequency of use. Keeping the earplugs clean will extend their lifespan. The earplugs can be cleaned with lukewarm water and soap.
The design of the Alpine hearing protectors is an exclusive Dutch Design. All earplugs and filter systems are produced in the Netherlands.
