Best earplugs for better sleep

5 best earplugs to get a better night’s sleep on the cheap

We could all use better sleep. Small sounds and bumps in the night can disrupt your slumber without realizing it. If you’ve ever been sensitive to sounds and felt them wake you up in the middle of the night, it’s time to lean into high-quality earplugs to help you stay asleep. These are our top picks.

Eargasm high-fidelity earplugs for sensitivity

The name says it all. These high-fidelity earplugs help block out sounds and reduce loud booms, so they don’t wake you up in the middle of the night. With a high-end design, these reduce the world’s noise around you without tuning it out completely. There’s also a quick pull-out tab for easy retrieval.

Ultra soft 38dB noise-reducing earplugs

Not a fan of reusable earplugs? Grab this pack of foam plugs that slowly expand to fill your ear cavity, reducing sound around you and softening the harsh, thunderous noise of the world.

These work well for travel, shooting, construction, home projects and sleep. They’re inexpensive and not the highest quality, but they are a great, cheap introduction to earplugs.

Flents foam earplugs

Want an even cheaper introduction to earplugs? You get less in a pack, but Flents foam earplugs help you determine which foam density you like with slow-release technology. These reduce noise without canceling everything out, so you can still be alert. Now the cat won’t wake you up with its late-night meowing.

LYSIAN concert and live performance earplugs

If you don’t wear earplugs to a concert, it can cause irreparable damage to your ears. What if you could have that same level of noise reduction strength while you slept? LYSIAN’s earplugs are designed to reduce high levels of noise and vibrations from disturbing you while you’re trying to get some shut-eye.

Loop Experience pro earplugs (musician-level protection)

These simple, high-end earplugs have a pull loop built into them, so you can pop them out when you’re done. With a high level of noise reduction and soft-touch exterior material, these are arguably the most comfortable fit you can find. Loop Experience is worth every penny.
