Swimming ear plugs
For some, swimming is not always fun: the water that enters the ear can cause irritation or the feeling of a blocked ear. If the water in the ear canal cannot escape, the ear may become inflamed or, in the worst cases, get infected and develop external otitis. Protecting yourself when you have fragile ears is therefore essential for your health!

For who swim ear plugs are suitable ?
It is suitable for many water activities: swimming, surfing, kayaking and others. The earplug can also be used in the case of an ear infection, to prevent water from entering the ear canal during a shower, for example. But beware! Contrary to popular belief, divers should not use earplugs.
When diving, a small amount of air will be trapped between the plug and the eardrum. With the compression from the depth, the ear plug will eventually be pushed to the bottom of your ear canal and can damage your eardrum.

Classic foam swim ear plugs protect the ear from water. They are cheap but have the disadvantage of being disposable and completely blocking out ambient sound.
If it's for very limited use, then this type of earplug will suit you. Reusable silicone swimming earplugs with filter are also very good protection for swimming. These silicone ear plugs for swimming have the advantage that they can be reused several times (up to 100 times for most models) and, thanks to their built-in filter, they allow you to remain aware of your surroundings (sounds are still perceived by the ear). This type of product is obviously more expensive than standard foam earplugs (between 5£ and 20£ per pair). If you know that you are going to use the earplugs for swimming frequently (for example, for a week), we recommend that you choose this type of earplug.
