Earplugs for flying and traveling
Winner Red Dot Award 2015
Alpine Hearing Protection has won the Red Dot Award 2015 for the design of its latest earplugs. The jury of this prestigious design price applauded the “high quality and the innovative ability” of the earplugs.
Revolutionary earplug model
Twenty years of experience have allowed Alpine to develop a perfect new earplug model. The extremely well thought-out and extensively tested shape of the earplugs, provides a natural flat absorption and a great fit. Plus the use of a special filter that only blocks the disturbing sounds.
AlpineAcousticFilters™ – Pressure regulating earplugs
Wearing FlyFit earplugs during flying regulates troublesome pressure on the eardrums during takeoff and landing. The filters operate like valves and ensure gradual and constant pressure equilibrium between the external environment and the middle ear. Thus, the Eustachian tube has sufficient time to acclimatise to pressure variations.
In addition, the special acoustic filters in FlyFit earplugs offer protection against annoying ambient noise. The earplugs facilitate rest and relaxation during long flights, but are also very suitable for using during bus, train and car journeys. Alpine Pluggies Kids earplugs are available for children who experience earache during airplane travel.
Alpine’s innovative earplugs are made from thermoplastic material specially developed by Alpine: AlpineThermoShape. This material adapts to the shape of the ears so that the earplugs fit the auditory ducts perfectly. You are guaranteed a comfortable fit without unpleasant pressure on your ears. You are assured that the earplugs remain in the right position, thus providing optimal noise reduction. ATS contains no silicone, thus causing no allergic reactions.
Soft filters – Exceptionally flexible
FlyFit and SleepSoft earplugs are the only earplugs on the market with soft, flexible filters. This ensures even greater comfort during your journey. With these soft filters, you can sleep soundly with your head turned to the side against your seat.
Alpine has developed an easy-to-use cleaning tool to remove earwax from the earplugs. By keeping the earplugs clean, they keep working optimally and last longer.
Lifespan and cleaning
The lifespan of the earplugs depends on frequency of use. Keeping the earplugs clean will extend the lifespan. The earplugs can be cleaned with lukewarm water and soap.
The design of the Alpine hearing protectors is an exclusive Dutch Design. All earplugs and filter systems are produced in the Netherlands.
