Ear Plugs For Blocking Noise Of Snoring
Isolate® Ear Plugs are revolutionary solid titanium and aluminium alloy metal micro ear protectors that isolate you from snoring noise like never before.
Snoring keeping you awake?
Isolate Ear Plugs turn it down!
Why is metal a better material for an ear plug?
Until now ear plugs have been made from plastics, foam, silicone or in desperate situations cotton wool. All these materials absorb sound. Absorbing sound isn't an affective way of blocking all frequencies to your ears, especially the lower frequencies.
Imagine a wall of foam and a wall of metal between you and a loud noise, which would you expect to hear through?
The foam one you would hear a muffled unclear noise, the low frequencies would still get through. The metal would block all the frequencies in the noise so you would hear very little.
Snoring noise is largely low frequency noise that other ear plugs simply do not take away from your ears. Isolates block all frequencies getting to your ears and leave you only hearing through bone conduction via your skull. This is hard to imagine, the sensation can only be described as it feeling like everything bring turned down to a lower volume!
Why are Isolate Ear Plugs the best solution for blocking snoring?
Isolate Ear Plugs block noise rather than absorb sound.
Isolate Ear Plugs are small enough to sleep in.
Isolate Ear Plugs block low frequencies as found in snoring, unlike foam or plastic based ear plugs.
Isolate Ear Plugs come with 3 sizes of comfortable foam tip to fit different sizes of ear canals.
There are two versions of Isolate, one is made from Aluminium and comes in 7 anodised colours and the second is made from denser Titanium which only comes in it's natural metal colour. Both work to a minimum SNR rating of 35dB.
The titanium ear plugs being a denser metal are the most efficient at reducing the level of noise by up to 4 times compared to the aluminium, we recommend titanium for very loud environments or where excessive low frequency noise.

Allen Davey of The British Snoring & Sleep Apnoea Association speaking about why Isolate are better for blocking snoring.
Snoring is when a person makes a snorting or rattling noise when they sleep.
It’s caused by vibrations of soft tissue in your head and neck as you breathe while you sleep.
When you’re asleep your airways relax and narrow, which affects pressure in your airways and causes the tissue to vibrate.
Snoring affects men and women of all ages. According to the NHS as many as 1 in 4 people in England snore regularly. Though it’s believed to be most common in people aged 40-60 and it’s thought that twice as many men as women snore.
Snoring is a key factor in sleep deprivation and not just for those kept awake by somebody else’s snoring! If you’re a heavy snorer it can affect your breathing while you sleep leading you to feel excessively tired during the day.
Sadly, there isn’t currently a cure for snoring, but Isolate Ear Plugs can help turn it down!!
- Lifestyle changes can have an impact, such as losing weight if you’re overweight.
- Some people may find that anti-snoring devices help, such as nasal strips or mouth guards
- Using pillows to prop yourself up and prevent sleeping flat on your back can help
- Surgery can be an option in extreme cases, but may only have a limited impact and is often only a temporary solution at best.
- Being overweight - fatty tissue around the neck puts pressure on airways and prevents air flowing freely
- Sleeping on your back - your tongue, chin and excess fat can squash your airway and affect air flow
- Having a cold - airways can become partially blocked
- Smoking - it irritates the lining of your throat and nose, leading to swelling and catarrh, which decreases airflow and can result in snoring
- Drinking excessive amounts of alcohol - effects of alcohol make your muscles relax more, which can result in the back of your throat collapsing as you breathe and lead to snoring
- Grade 1 - light, infrequent snoring, generally doesn’t affect your breathing (it might still irritate a partner though!)
- Grade 2 - regular snoring (more than 3 days a week). May have mild to moderate breathing difficulties during sleep. Can affect sleep quality and make you feel tired in the daytime.
- Grade 3 - snores every night and loud enough to be heard outside their room
Those classed as Grade 3 snorers often have a related condition called obstructive sleep apnoea. This is where snoring causes the airways to be partially or completely blocked for about 10 seconds, a lack of oxygen then triggers your brain to move you from a deep to a light sleep, or even wake you up, in order to restore normal breathing. Repeated snoring and waking can make you feel very tired the following day.
