Earhole ecstasy with down plugs

DOWN-BASED earplugs are claimed to offer the ultimate in comfort, while still providing similar levels of protection as conventional foam plugs.

Bilsom International says its 200 series down plugs are more comfortable because they put less pressure on the ear.

Available in two sizes, large and small, the plugs are priced from £37/pack; each pack has 400 pairs of plugs (01256-703581).
