We wanted these earplugs to use when on vacation. Sometimes the hotel or motel has many guests and with these we don't hear doors opening and closing. We have stayed where children were constantly running up and down upstairs from us. These earplugs help a lot. We like that they are reusable and that one size fits all. The snoring plugs are an extra to help when my husband snores loudly. With these I can rest easily.
