Using Your Custom Earplugs

You can easily distinguish between the right and left ear plugs

How to Tell Which Plug Goes in Which Ear

Your RIGHT plug has a RED marking. Your LEFT plug has a BLUE marking.

In some cases, you may have only a RED DOT on the face of your RIGHT ear plug.

Adjusting to the Plugs

Allow about 1-2 weeks to get used to having the plugs in your ears.

You can always apply a small amount of lubricant around the end of the plug that goes into your ear canal. Vaseline (petroleum jelly) works perfectly but you can use any lubricant you feel comfortable with.

If you feel any discomfort, take the plugs out and give your ears a break.

How to Clean Custom Silicone Plugs

You can clean your ear plugs by simply washing them with warm water and mild soap.You can also just rinse them with warm water (without soap). This way you’ll maintain a thin layer of natural oils from your ear canal and it makes it easier to put them in.

After cleaning, if they feel slightly sticky, they may be harder to insert. Using a tiny bit of petroleum jelly will get them back to normal.

How to Clean Custom Musician Plugs

Any ear wax that accumulates in the “inside” end of the plug can be removed with the tool that came with your ear plugs.

Use the wire loop at the other end of the brush to remove accumulated wax. You can use a damp cloth to wipe away any ear wax that is on the outside of the plug. IMPORTANT: Filter buttons should be kept dry at all times.

DON’T WASH THE FILTER! If dust or dirt accumulates on the filter, brush it gently with a cloth or small brush tool that was included with your set of plugs.
