Sponge type earplugs: Low-pressure foam material, anti-noise earplugs made of highly elastic polyester material have smooth surface and slow rebound. When used, the ear does not have the feeling of pain and the soundproof effect is between 25dB and 40dB. This kind of earplugs is very suitable for sleep every night, but can not be used repeatedly due to the slow rebound effect after cleaning. Generally speaking, the earplugs are disposable.
