Noise reduction earplugs for noise sensitivity

The world is noisy. From chatter and the sound of the subway on your morning commute, to the sound of traffic on the road outside, and from background noise in your local cafe to children screaming in the playpark… Noise is everywhere.

If you’re sensitive to noise, it can be hard to deal with. Noise sensitivity affects everyone differently. Some people find everyday noises like chewing and slurping that wouldn’t bother other people, completely unbearable. Others are only triggered by loud noises like music concerts, fireworks and sudden shouting.

Whatever type of noise sensitivity you experience, it can make life difficult. You want to live your life to the fullest, but noise anxiety can make it difficult to get out there and face the world.

But what if we told you there was a way you could still experience all the things you love – just at a reduced volume? Earplugs for sensitive ears can help to reduce your symptoms, meaning you can grab every opportunity with both hands.

How Loop Earplugs can support people who are sensitive to noise

Noise sensitivity comes in various forms, from anxiety and panic attacks to discomfort and distress – and it often goes hand-in-hand with other conditions like ADHD, autism and misophonia.

And if you suffer from noise sensitivity, it can be tempting to hide away from the world, and all the noises that you find distressing. But this can actually make your noise sensitivity even worse in the long run.

If you actively avoid noises, your brain can find it even harder to interpret and deal with everyday sounds, making them even more distressing and overwhelming – and that can lead to a cycle of heightened sensitivity, social isolation and anxiety.

Noise sensitivity earplugs can help. Rather than avoiding noisy places, you can wear earplugs when you go out instead, to help build up your tolerance and reduce sensory overload.

If you find it overwhelming to socialise when there’s lots of background noise, earplugs for sound sensitivity can take the edge off. That means you can stay fully engaged with your friends, family and colleagues without feeling anxious or exhausted. And if you find it hard to focus when it’s noisy, whether you’re studying in a cafe or working in an open-plan office, earplugs can help by reducing distracting background noise and helping you to get in the zone.

Sound can be stressful at night too. How many times have you been awake in bed, struggling to sleep because there’s a party in the flat downstairs, traffic outside, or your partner’s snoring like a train? Earplugs can help to minimise noise anxiety, help you get to sleep faster, and ensure you have a better quality of sleep by reducing noise disturbances throughout the night.

Why Loop Earplugs are your best option

Traditional foam earplugs usually block out noise. That’s not the ideal solution for people with noise sensitivity, as you don’t want to avoid noise completely. The best earplugs for sensitive hearing are designed to filter noise instead of muffling it – which is exactly what Loop Earplugs do.

Loop Experience and Loop Engage filter sound waves instead of blocking them, thanks to a patented acoustic channel and mesh. That means you can still hear everything that’s going on around you, just at a lower volume.

Loop Experience offer up to 18 decibels (SNR) and 7 decibels (NRR) of noise reduction, perfect for finding focus.

Loop Engage have up to 16 decibels (SNR) and 10 decibels (NRR) of noise reduction, and are made with conversation in mind.

And if you’re looking for a better night’s sleep? Choose Loop Quiet, with up to 26.2 decibels (SNR) and 14 decibels (NRR) of noise reduction, made with super soft silicone for all-night comfort.

  • I wish I had found them sooner!

    I can't imagine not using my Loop Experience Pro again. I struggle with noise sensitivity and distraction from ADHD; there is either not enough sound or too much. Being able to drown out background noise so that I can focus on conversations has been a game changer.  

    Also, wearing them underneath headphones makes them into noise-canceling headphones! You can hear your music perfectly, but no outside sounds!

  • Amazing earplugs for sound sensitivity

    These are great! And especially nice if you’re bothered by high-pitched sounds.

     Another great thing is that your internal sounds (chewing, breathing) aren’t as amplified as with most earplugs. You can barely tell that you’re wearing them, until you take them out. That’s when you realize how freaking loud everything is without them, haha!
