Earplugs are invaluable for professional cruise ship speakers | Pearl Harbor Kit

As a professional speaker, I have a zip-lock lock bag with all the essentials I need to be well prepared for almost any contingency. I call it a “Pearl Harbor” kit.

Today I want to share my experience with ear plugs. I find them EXTREMELY useful when using public wifi sites. Coffee shops, hamburger shacks and muffin shops are all offering wifi to draw you in. The problem is that they are very noisy. Customers are yelling, kids are screaming and other “hackers” are wheeling and dealing. Many have loud music playing (I think to drive people out after being served.)  I jam my earplugs in so far they actually touch! :>)  There are many on the market. Here’s a shot of my collection

The ones at the 4 o'clock position are the best.

The ones at the 4 o’clock position are the best.

The best I have found are callHearos Earplugs High Fidelity Series.” They are shaped like little Christmas trees, with the decreasing smaller cones.

 

The small end goes into your ear canal. They block up to 20 decibels of sound. They are washable and seem to last years. I do not like the kind that feel like putty. I also don;t use the foam ones. These are all one-time use only and never seal all the noise. Also perfect for use on airplanes.  if you trim down the “shaft” you can even sleep in them. I do – it’s like being in an immersion tank.
