These can be a little difficult to insert at least for me. I'm never think I have them inserted far enough, but they always seem to work. I've seen reports of people getting them inserted so far as to cause ear damage. They must have a lot bigger ear canals than I do. I've also seen where people got such a good seal that when they removed them too fast it caused problems, but so far I haven't had any of those problems. With them being clear I do worry that if one comes out in the pool I'll never find it. Fortunately, they are fairly inexpensive.

These plugs work very well. I put a lot if serious laps in at the pool each week and rely on them to keep my ears dry. They are more pliable and flexible than other plastic plugs I have used which make it a bit more difficult to place into the ear, but wetting the plugs first greatly helps to reduce this problem. The increased pliability and softness make them more comfortable to wear. They stay put once installed.

Simple and effective
I use these for swimming laps and they work great. I have always had a problem with getting water stuck in my ear and not at all with these. Not really anything else to say but that they work great.

Good sound/water blocker...
Bought these to keep my ear canals dry when I swim. Very comfortable and not too obvious.

Dry, soft, one piece ear plugs
I've used ear plugs for swimming for 20 plus years now and have tried all kinds, from foam rubber rolled up ones to the silicone putty to various plug styles. The Macks AquaBlock ear plugs are by far my favorite. If they're put in correctly they are virtually water proof, they are made of super soft silicone so they don't press or hurt, and they don't break up and leave little pieces in your ear the way the putty can when it gets older. I swim some ultra long distance events like 5 K open water races and Ironman triathlons (2.4 mile deep water start swims) so ear plugs that aren't going to bug me are very important, the harder compound silicone plugs are good but these Macks are much more comfortable for an hour and a half or two hours of continuous wear. They last for literally years even for swimmers who use them every day and the price is very reasonable. I've never worn a pair out, only lost one or two here or there by my own careless ness or rushing during a race through transition from the swim to the bike segment in Ironman Triathlons.

caused my ear drum rupture
The feature of increased sealing ability, caused my ear drum rupture a week ago.I had a sharp pressure pain before i pulled out this plug, and while i pull it out, blood came out from my right ear. When i went to emergency unit in hospital, doctor did nothing to treat. one day later, i went to my family doctor to get ear drop that has anti-biotic medicine.be careful not to put tight or deep in your ear.
