Noise reduction earplugs for noise sensitivity

We live in a noisy world. From people chatting on the bus to roadworks in the street outside your hours, and from kids screaming in the playground to the background noise when you’re catching up with friends in a bar… Noise is everywhere. 

And it can be hard to deal with. Especially if you add noise sensitivity into the mix. That means that you find everyday sounds, that other people might not notice, hard to tolerate. 

Noise sensitivity affects people differently. Some people are triggered by loud noises like fireworks and sudden shouting. Others find everyday noises like chewing, slurping and coughing to be unbearable. For some people with noise sensitivity, these sounds can cause intense emotional reactions.

It leaves you with a dilemma. You want to go out and experience everything life has to offer – but your noise anxiety makes it difficult. Noise sensitivity can have a huge impact on your life potentially leading to isolation, anxiety and depression.

But what if we told you there was another way? That you could still experience all the things you love – but at a reduced volume? The solution: earplugs for noise sensitivity.

How Loop Earplugs support people who are sensitive to noise

Noise sensitivity can manifest in many different ways, from anxiety and panic attacks to discomfort and distress. And it can be linked to lots of different conditions, like ADHD, autism and misophonia

But however you experience noise sensitivity, you shouldn’t have to avoid loud places. In fact, doing this can make you even more sensitive to noise in the long run. 

By avoiding all noise, your brain loses the ability to deal with everyday sounds – so when you do hear them, they can be even more distressing and overwhelming. Cutting yourself off from sounds that bother you can decrease your tolerance even further. And what’s more, it can lead to social isolation and anxiety. It becomes a vicious cycle.

But noise sensitivity earplugs can help you. Wearing earplugs in noisy environments or when you’re around sounds that you find distressing, it can increase your tolerance. That means that gradually, you can increase the amount of time you spend in noisy places.

When you’re in loud places, like crowded places, nightclubs, cafes or big events, wearing earplugs for noise sensitivity can help to prevent sensory overload. That means there’s no need to avoid your favorite places, as they’ll just be at a lower volume.

Earplugs can help you to socialize more comfortably, too. For many people with noise sensitivity, it can be overwhelming and exhausting to socialize when there’s lots of background noise. Wearing earplugs can take the edge off the noise, allowing you to stay fully engaged without feeling anxious.

And if you find it hard to concentrate when it’s noisy, earplugs can help too. Whether you’re trying to study in a busy cafe or need to focus at work, earplugs can reduce distracting sounds to create a more conducive environment for concentration.

And it’s not just during the day when noise can be stressful. Have you ever tossed and turned in bed struggling to sleep because of a busy street outside, or your partner snoring? Earplugs can help you to get to sleep faster, and improve your sleep quality, by minimizing disturbances and creating a quieter sleeping environment.

Why Loop Earplugs are your best option

Traditional foam earplugs block out noise – which isn’t great for people with noise sensitivity. The best earplugs for noise sensitivity filter sound instead. That’s exactly what Loop Earplugs do. They’re made to filter sound waves instead of muffling them, thanks to a patented acoustic channel and a newly engineered filter. That means you’re still able to hear everything that’s going on around you – just at a lower volume.

We’ve got a choice of earplugs, all designed for noise sensitivity, so you can choose the pair that best suit your individual needs.

Loop Experience earplugs reduce noise by up to 18 decibels, but with perfect sound quality so you can still hear all the important stuff.

Loop Engage are designed with conversation in mind. They offer up to 16 decibels of noise reduction and are designed to reduce the occlusion effect – that is, the echoey, head-underwater feeling you often get with standard earplugs. 

And Loop Quiet are specifically designed for a better night’s sleep, with super soft silicone for all-night comfort and up to 24 decibels of noise reduction.

  • I wish I had found them sooner!

    I can't imagine not using my Loop Experience Pro again. I struggle with noise sensitivity and distraction from ADHD; there is either not enough sound or too much. Being able to drown out background noise so that I can focus on conversations has been a game changer.  

    Also, wearing them underneath headphones makes them into noise-canceling headphones! You can hear your music perfectly, but no outside sounds!

  • Amazing earplugs for sound sensitivity

    These are great! And especially nice if you’re bothered by high-pitched sounds.

     Another great thing is that your internal sounds (chewing, breathing) aren’t as amplified as with most earplugs. You can barely tell that you’re wearing them, until you take them out. That’s when you realize how freaking loud everything is without them, haha!
