Flugz Formable hearing Protection Review

What have you done in the last 5 minutes? I saved my ears. In just five minutes, I custom fit my ears with the Flugz Formable Hearing Protection kit. Flugz are designed to soften and conform to the shape of your ear. Once they are cooled and firm they hold their shape and easily slip in and out of your ear. If by chance you feel they have lost their shape over time, there is a procedure for warming them up and reforming. This “warm ‘n form” process takes less than 5 minutes and provides me with the confidence to go out shooting, knowing that my ears will be protected.


The process is simple. Open the canister, heat one earplug at a time in water in the microwave-safe cup for 30 seconds, insert the Flugz earplug in your ear, press and mold the earplug as it forms in your ear, hold in place for 30 seconds, let cool in your ear for an additional 90 seconds, and cool for 5 minutes before using. Once formed, the Flugz earplugs do not need to be reheated or reformed unless you feel you are no longer getting a perfect fit. Re-forming is even faster.


The NNR (Noise Reduction Rating) for Flugz is 21. While this reduction in noise makes a difference, keep in mind that wearing dual hearing protection such as Flugz along with earmuffs provides even more protection.


The Flugz package comes in a canister that is used for warming and for storing the ear plugs. It comes with right and left Flugz, differentiated by color (red post for right and black post for left), a lanyard, and instructions.


You can protect your ears for $24.99 with the Flugz Formable Hearing Protection package. Look up www.flugz.com for more information.
