Milwaukee Corded Red Earplugs (3-Pack) Milwaukee’s 3-Pack of soft silicon is a great deal. With their 3-pack, I was able to store one in my truck’s glove box for occasions when I forget my hearing protection at home or the shop. The second set in the convenient pocket size dust free container (see first photo) I put in my tool box, again for when I forget other hearing protection. Set number three I hooked over my air compressor to protect my hearing from this loud compressor noise when it is plugged in. The fit of the silicon plugs was just right for me (see second photo). And I like draping the connecting lanyard around the back of my neck. I found that the plugs wipe very clean with a kleenex tissue when needed. Once I have them in, there are no issues with leaving them in place for a long while as they are hardly noticeable. Their level of sound protection is excellent for such a small and easy to use thing.

These Milwaukee Corded Earplugs work much better than the disposable foam plugs that I had been using. Those always felt loose and sometimes would pop out. I like using these while mowing the lawn where the persistent loud noise can damage your hearing. They do help to reduce the noise somewhat, but don’t expect it to be silent. You still hear it, but only about half as loud. I found that if you slowly turn or rotate the stem, it is much easier to get a good fit when inserting, as well as breaking the seal while removing them. Since they’re flexible and soft, there aren’t any uncomfortable pressure points felt in the canal. It’s very similar to what you feel when you stick your finger in your ear. Used with a pair of Milwaukee Safety Glasses, I’m well protected now while doing lawn work.

I like this plunger style ear plug better than the foam ones. I always feel like the foam ones are trying to pop out and they don't feel like they protect as well. These do cost more than the huge bags of foam earplugs. I find that I get more use since the Milwaukee ones have a lanyard to park them on my neck. In addition, the three pack comes with a small plastic case to carry an extra set in your apron or tool belt without getting a bunch of debris stuck to them.

I prefer ear protection that goes over the ears, not in them. Nonetheless, I decided to try these. I personally did not like them, from end to end this is about 27" long.The noise reduction was ok, but I just did not like the long cord hanging on the back of my neck bone. Suggestions for improvements: Since this is 27" long, I would shorten the cord, this will prevent the likelihood of the cord getting caught onto another object, mainly the back of your shirt, jacket, hoodie. I would prefer if the plugs had the adjustable clip that are often on eyeglass straps

These are really nice earplugs! There are 3 to a pack. You can put 2 of the sets inside a nice compact case that will fit in just about any pocket. The plugs are attached to a plastic cord that prevents their loss when not in your ears. Use is easy. They fit well and block out about 45 percent of all noises. To remove simply wiggle to break the seal, and remove. They clean with warm soapy water. Nice price point. Nothing to complain about!

A one size fits all ear plug – silicone rubber corded earplugs – well designed and well constructed. The three domed plugs do an excellent job of sealing out the noise although the bottom edges of the domes can be felt in your ear. The overall size is excellent – the 1/4” diameter shaft is easy to grasp - the plugs can be put in and removed with ease – note that the shaft diameter reduces as dome plug size changes (see photo)

Milwaukee Corded Red Earplugs (3-Pack) These are made from soft silicone for all day comfort and are very easy and comfortable to use. I am not sure what Noise reduction rating of 26 really means, although they keep the noise down when I am using my table saw, routers, thickness planner & other woodworking tools. For me they work and are much easier to use than the large size that go over your ears and you have the extra weight to deal with as well as keeping them tight. Having the small case for storage is great so you can keep them clean and just put in your pocked when you are not using them. Thanks Milwaukee for another great product.

These reusable ear plugs are very comfortable to wear almost all day long. There is a cord connecting the ear plugs so that you can drape them around your neck when not in use. The ear plugs are made out of a soft silicone material that make it easy to use. The pack comes with three sets of ear plugs and a hard case to carry them in. I use them for working with power equipment and when firing a gun at the range. They have a noise reduction rating of 26 decibels, and block out most noises that i have encountered.

I received my Milwaukee corded red earplugs today; They come with three sets of earplugs (one in a case and two spare pairs). The earplugs are made from a flexible silicone rubber that is easy to insert in your ears. These Milwaukee earplugs work very well, much better than the foam ones I was using previously. I like these earplugs because of its skinny cord, and when hanging around your neck, you hardly notice them. Overall, these Milwaukee earplugs easy to use, and they work well.

Probably the most comfortable in-ear plugs I have worn. I use this style of ear protection for a variety of reasons from protection while working to recreation. I like that they're connected by a thin plastic style string. They won't get caught around your neck and cause a problem. I have used the roll-up silicone ones in the past, but one or the other gets lost or they have to be carried in the pocket and can be a hassle to use quickly. These are great for on the job or around the home, simply drape them around your neck and they're instantly available when needed. They provide great noise protection and can be worn all day.
