Q: What is the Noise Reduction Rating of Earplugs?
A : This is going to depend on the model you purchase. Please review the product pages for our models to find the NRR. On our High Fidelity Earplugs, the Noise Reduction Rating is 19 dB. However, depending on the frequency of the sound and if the earplug is properly inserted in the ear, users can reduce noise by up to 21 decibels. However, we feel the NRR vastly underestimates the true effectiveness of our earplugs. Also please review below our frequency response graph for our Earplugs model.

A : The difference is in the quality of the sound that passes through the earplug. Foam earplugs muffle and distort noise while Earplugs maintain the full spectrum of sound for the user. Concertgoers and musicians can safely listen to loud music with clarity. Motorcyclists can reduce wind noise, but still be able to hear their surroundings. Factory workers can cut down on shrill noises in their work environment, while still being able to communicate with coworkers.
Q: What causes snoring?
A: Snoring happens when you can't move air freely through your nose and throat during sleep. This makes the surrounding tissues vibrate, which produces the snoring sound.
Common causes of snoring:
- Have certain anatomical features such as small nostrils, an enlarged tongue, tonsils, uvula or soft palate, or a recessed jaw
- Have nasal or sinus congestion
- Are overweight, particularly with fat around your neck
- Sleep on your back
- Sleep with your mouth open
- Have weak muscles in your mouth
- Smoke or drink alcohol
- Are male
- Are older
Q: Is snoring harmful?
A: Some may think snoring as sign of good sleep. Unfortunately, snoring not only disrupts your bed partner, but also can be a signal that your airway is blocked. Snoring could indicate Obstructive Sleep Apnea, a serious sleep disorder where your breathing is briefly interrupted many times each night. Call your doctor if you have noticed the following problems:
- You snore loudly and heavily and are tired during the day.
- You stop breathing, grasp, or choke during sleep.
- Snoring itself may be a risk factor for cardiovascular disease. Compared with non-snorers, snorers are more likely to experience thickening or abnormalities in the carotid artery. These changes in the artery can lead to atherosclerosis, a hardening of the arteries that is involved in several vascular diseases.
Snoring is also considered bad because it can disrupt your sleep and lead to many uncomfortable complications, including daytime sleepiness, concentration problems, and an increased likelihood of car accidents.
Q: What is the purpose of the snoring mouth guard?
A: Today you can solve many problems simply by using a snoring mouthpiece (mouthguard type appliance). An obstruction in the airway during sleep causes snoring. The loud sound is caused by palatal tissues vibrating during sleep as the body attempts to get enough air to overcome the obstruction. A snoring mouthpiece can assist in preventing the soft throat tissues from collapsing. We highly recommend checking out our products page to see the options available to you.
Q: How does the nasal dilator work?
A: Nasal congestion at night can lead to snoring, since you’re more likely to breathe through your mouth when there is restricted airflow through your nose. The nasal dilator works to improve airflow in your nose, which can help reduce snoring and dry mouth from having to breathe through your mouth. Clinical tests have proven the effectiveness of the nasal dilator. This is great news for many snorers, mouth breathers and their bed partners in search of better sleep at night.
Q: What remedies are most effective for reducing snoring?
A: There are many devices available that can be extremely effective for reducing snoring, but whether or not they will work for you depends on whether they address the underlying cause of your snoring. Explore Solutions ZZZ remedies to discover potential remedies for you.
