Could not get these to stay in or seal on their own , but were a lot better with the aid of an over the ear swim cap.

Great ear putty
I've tried heaps of different ear plugs and they always seem to big and I loose them especially during open water swims. These however are great because you just break off a bit to fit your ear and they rarely fall out.
They help protect against ear infections so I think they are invaluable and would definately recommend them.

worth a try
Ever since I have had a serious ear infection I have had to use ear plugs - I'm talking 25 years of wearing ear plugs .. I used to always buy the speedo ones .. they do fit pretty well, however, once has to be careful when inserting them into ones ears ...the angle is crucial! recent;y I damaged my right ear , scratched the skin slightly without noticing .. which resulted in an ear infection - time to give The Zoggs Silicone Putty Ear Plugs a go and I can highly recommend them! they mould well to my ears and keep the water out ! success!

Don't seal the canal and let water in
I got these to swim in lakes, where the cold water often makes me dizzy. These don't do much to help, although I have found other ones that are much better and work.

These ear plugs are brilliant! I've worked my way through all of the ear plugs on the market and these have worked the best for my small ears! They completely seal the outside of the ear thus no water can travel into the ear canal. To make them work effectively they need to be warmed and made supple first, as one would with 'BlueTac' before use. Then you gentle push them into your outer ear, working the plug until it completely fills your outer ear. They are so effective that it is actually quite difficult to hear anything with them in and talking is a challenge too. I thought I was shouting but I was whispering! They stay in really well. I swam 6km in a lake this morning with no hat and they stayed put. I've done rough sea swims too and they didn't budge. One minor thing is that you have to be careful where you put them when you take them off as dirt sticks to them. They come with a case which really needs to be used, particularly if there is sand about. Highly recommended.

Great for open water swimming
Use them for triathlons not water gets in. Last the whole season

Cheap and dont hurt your ear. Easily lost in the pool so needs adjusting from time to time. Affordable.

comfortable to use, and since I only have a problem with one ear, the box of 4 last ages

Ear infection preventor
These ear plugs work very well they mould to your ear whilst remaining in situ whilst swimming.

Exactly s advetised
Use these while cycling to reduce wind noise. Fit great and can be moulded to suit ear. Four pieces is handy if you lose one.

Easy enough for my 6-year old to use
My six year old had an ear operation and these have been great at allowing him to go swimming without worrying about getting water in his ears. He can put them in himself and theres a little case to put them back into when he's getting changed. Perfect!

Good but not great
On the positive side these are better than the alternative I tried in that they stay in and keep more water out. On the negative, they do not keep all water out and therefore still leave me at risk of further ear infections (which was the reason for buying them). I have now purchased custom ear plugs from elsewhere which are expensive but do work.

Not bad, not perfect either
Used these for just under a year, they are useful but difficult to get (and keep) in place.

Easy to fit. Keeps ear dry. Better then others i tried.

Fantastic Ear Plugs
These ear plugs are great, they mould perfectly to every ear shape and keep the water out.
The only down-side with them is that they work so well I sometimes can;t hear what fellow swimmers are saying to me!
Great carry case to keep them clean.
Just buying my cesond lot at they eventually got a bit covered in sand after some open water swimming events this summer, mainly due to the fact i didn't put them back in the box staright after I had finished swimming.

Putty Ear plugs - do the job
really easy to insert - no need to force in. moulds to your ear brilliantly and no fear of them coming out. absolutely no water let in. to remove, just roll from edge. I have had trouble with 'sensitive' ears since childhood and used many, many plugs. These are the best by far.

Does the job
Started using for open water and seem best thing so far..I've had to tear smaller bits off to fit snugly but has worked and handy case keeps them clean.
Recommend no problem

best ear waterproofing!
These are fantastic. They really do work flawlessly, with the only slight downside being that you cant hear the swim coach!

They are great for keeping out the water
When I am swimming these are the only ear plugs that keep out the water out of my ears. In the last few years my ears became sensitive to the water and I have tryed other ear plugs they did nt work for me .

Keeps the water out
This is the second time I have purchased these ear plug. For me they work well. Before I suffered with water stuck in my ear for a few days after swimming....now I do not have that problem.
28 June 2015
I find these more comfortable to use than the fixed option

Excellent ear plug
Having had problems with water in ear infections in the past I have tried a variety of moulded ear plugs, all of which let in some amount of water.
These putty ear plugs, though strange at first, have proved to be the most effective barrier to water ingress. I've used 2 of the supplied 4 plugs now for the last 2 months (roughly 40 pool swims) and am about to bin them and move onto the second pair.
As long as you keep them clean they should prove to be an effective piece of kit.

Easy to use. Just press and mould into ear. Under a cap great and keeps water out.

Best Ear Plugs money can buy
Excluding ear plugs tailor made individually, these silicon plugs are the best that money can buy.
04 April 2015
Easily used and make your ears watertight just don't expect to have a conversation while wearing them as you probably won't hear a thing. Downside is they pick up dirt quick so have clean hands and don't drop.
03 April 2015
Find this putty works a treat, a quick squish in the fingers to make plyable then mould in ear. Lasts for ages too
31 March 2015
They work brilliantly, they do make me almost completely deaf in the pool which can be both advantage and disadvantage.
I'm not sure what the life span is but they do discolour a bit. Over all very good though.
19 March 2015
wear these every time I go swimming and are super comfortable and I've not had swimmers ear since i started with them
06 March 2015
This product really works amazingly well - especially compared to the other ear plugs I have tried to use over the years. Easy to shape to your own ear - easy to remove, and very comfortable.

Good Product for swimming. It stays in plays and not enoying
