These ear plugs are comfortable and work great. The carrying case is nice to have. It not only protects them when not in use, but it also has a key ring hook for easy access. They come with a extra pair of plugs . They will work great for when we take our 16 year old to concerts to help protect his ears from the loud speakers. He said they fit well and they didn't bother him. He had them in for a bit while I had the music on around the house and he said it blocked the loudness perfectly, but could still hear fine. I will use the extra pair while I'm out doing yard work. Gotta protect your ears as much as you can. Good ear plug set to have around when you need them!
