Swimming Ear Plugs for Kids and Adults
We Also Recommend: Surfing Ear Plugs, if you want to be able to hear while you are in the water.
The right ear plugs for swimming, showering and bathing help to prevent water from getting into the ear canal. For most people, water in the ear is just a bother. For those with ear problems though, water can lead to infections and serious ear problems.
Doctors who treat young children for ear problems frequently put tubes into the child's eardrum(s) in order to prevent fluid build-up, and that in turn helps to prevent accompanying ear infections. For these little guys with ear tubes, preventing water in the ear is absolutely essential for ear health.
Water can be kept out of the ear by most ear plugs, but for young children we recommend moldable silicone earplugs instead of premolded or custom molded ear plugs because the moldable earplugs are simple to use and they continue to work as your child grows. Our top picks include Mack's Pillow Soft earplugs, Hearos Pearls, and Putty Buddies.
For adults, moldable silicone earplugs are fine, but additional options in the form of pre-molded silicone earplugs are even better as they are simpler and easier to use, as well as lasting longer for a better value. If money is not too tight, and you use them often, we suggest you consider investing in a set of custom molded earplugs which give you unparalleled comfort and years of daily use.
