Sleep-eze...the snore eliminator?

Pros:Wireless white noise, can block snoring

Cons:Tiny parts; comfort issues; blocks smoke and burglar alarms

The Bottom Line: Comfort issues are important but if the need to block out snoring is more important, then give the Sleep-eze a go. I say 3 stars. Comfort issues prevent 5 stars.


I bought a pair of the Sleep-eze white noise earplugs through Nature's Tapestry. The reason? My mate was talking about getting a separate bed so we could both get some sleep, since he snores. Well, I didn't want to be parted from my sweetie, so I took a chance on the Sleep-eze earplugs.

The package came with the earplugs and 4 different sized ear tips for each plug, so I could pick the size that provided the best fit. A pack of hearing aid batteries was also included, as well as a cleaning brush and a travel bag. Everything came in a very nice box.

I first picked out the best fitting tip for each of the plugs, then put the batteries in. The battery compartment slides out of the middle of the plug and a small rack holds the battery. You can use a fingernail or a nail file to open the compartment. You have to slide the rack closed for the Sleep-eze to generate sound. There is no off/on switch, so to turn them off in the morning, just take the earplugs out of your ears (there's a small, stiff plastic cord on each plug for assisting with removal) and open the battery compartment. Note that the hearing aid batteries used for these ear plugs are TINY and therefore could be easily lost or snapped up by a curious kitten, puppy or child. Be careful.

I slid the battery compartment closed, then held the earplug to my ear. Nothing. Then I realised I needed to adjust the volume. There is a small dial on the face of the plug for the volume. Using my fingernail, I turned up the volume and heard the blessed white noise. I cranked it up as high as it would go and put the earplugs in. Even at highest volume, the sound was not too loud. My mate started talking while standing behind me. I could only hear a suggestion of sound. So far, so good.

Later that night I popped in the plugs and settled down to sleep. I'm a stomach sleeper (no pillow, thanks) and realised right away that sleeping in my favourite position was out. The earplugs are hard plastic and they were very uncomfortable. I grabbed a pillow and resorted to laying on my side. I still had problems getting the plugs to not dig against my ears, but I eventually fell asleep. However, it wasn't for long. Every time the plugs dug into my ears I woke up in discomfort and had to change position. It sometimes took a few minutes to find a position that worked. By early morning I was trying to sleep on my back, the only position that didn't cause my ears to ache.

How did it work for snoring? Glad you asked. My mate did snore and I could hear it, but just barely, and only because I was awake due to the discomfort from the plugs.

I'm not going to send the plugs back because they actually do work as advertised. The comfort problems are an issue, but not one bigger to me than sleeping apart from my mate. I think a specially designed pillow with an ear hole would work really well for use with these plugs. Back sleepers will find the plugs a godsend, but side and stomach sleepers will need to work around the comfort issues.
