ALPINE EAR PLUGS : NO.1 HEARING PROTECTION
We want people to enjoy life more by offering high quality Alpine hearing protection for musicians, children, travelers, water sports enthusiasts, clubbers, motorists and people with sleeping issues. We believe that life is more fun when you are not bothered by harmful or annoying noise.
After an intensive but satisfying day, nothing is nicer than crawling into bed, leaving everything behind you and enjoying an undisturbed night’s rest. Just wonderful, right? Unfortunately this is not the case for everyone. Noisy neighbours or a snoring partner are two of the top three annoying noises. Not just at home, but also in hotels or on campsites.
Alpine SleepSoft earplugs have an average damping (SNR) of 25 dB. This means that disturbing environmental noises are muffled. However, you will still hear significantly louder noises. Of course, you will hear them less loud. Many people find it easier to fall asleep while wearing the earplugs and wake up less easily. Noises such as your alarm clock, doorbell or children can still be heard.
The volume of snoring sounds can be very loud and even exceed 95 dB. This is as loud as a pop concert! Despite of the use of earplugs, you will probably still hear this kind of snoring. It does not matter which earplugs you use.
In case you would like the highest possible noise reduction, we would advise you to go to your local ear care specialist for custom made earplugs. Their advantage is that they have a perfect fit, because they are an exact copy of your ear canal and close of the ears completely.
How come earplugs never fully block out all noises?
The conduction of sound takes place in two ways: through air and via bone. Our skull also picks up sonic vibrations. This is called bone conduction. Via bone conduction our eardrum vibrates, because of which we perceive sound; we can hear it. Therefore, sound can never be blocked out completely, just by blocking the ear canal.
Twenty years of experience have allowed Alpine to develop a perfect new earplug model. The extremely well thought-out and extensively tested shape of the earplugs, provides a natural flat absorption and a great fit.
The special acoustic filters in SleepSoft earplugs reduce troublesome and harmful noise, which hinders a good night’s sleep. Snoring sounds and environmental noise are blocked, enabling most people to fall asleep more easily and to enjoy uninterrupted sleep. The special filters prevent a sense of isolation from the outside world. The sounds of the alarm clock, doorbell, alarm, or a crying baby remain sufficiently audible. SleepSoft earplugs are very suitable for use at home, while study-ing, or while staying in a hotel or at a camping site.
SleepSoft earplugs have an average attenuation (SNR) of 25 dB. Disturbing sounds will be muffled due to these earplugs, therefore falling asleep will be easier and they prevent from waking up too easy. You will still be able to hear some of your surroundings, for example you’ll still be able to hear your alarm or your kids.
Snoring sounds usually have a very high sound level. With SleepSoft earplugs you will muffle a large part of the snoring sounds, with as result that falling asleep will be more easy and keep you from continuously waking up. It is not possible to mute the snoring sounds completely. Due to bone conduction a part of the sound vibrations slip past and will always enter your hearing.
The special design of SleepSoft earplugs provides extra noise attenuation and a very comfortable fit. That is due to the unique AlpineThermoShape material, an innovation from Alpine. This material adapts to the shape of your ears, thus the earplugs fit perfectly. There is no sense of pressure on your ears. ATS contains no silicone, thus causing no allergic reactions.
SleepSoft are the only sleeping earplugs on the market with super soft filters that will have you sleeping like a log. However, if you find the earplugs somewhat too long, you can cut off part of the filter/stem without any problems.
Alpine has developed an-easy-to use cleaning tool to remove earwax from the earplugs. By keeping the earplugs clean, they keep working optimally and last longer.
The lifespan of the earplugs depends on frequency of use. Keeping the earplugs clean will extend the lifespan. The earplugs can be cleaned with lukewarm water and soap.
The design of the Alpine hearing protectors is an exclusive Dutch Design. All earplugs and filter systems are produced in the Netherlands.

After motorcycling, do you have problems with ringing in your ears? This is due to the noise to which you are exposed. In particular, even at relatively low speeds the rushing of the wind is already enough to cause hearing damage. In addition, the noise means you become tired more quickly. And if you are tired, you are able to concentrate less on the traffic. In short, it is important to protect your ears on the motorcycle properly. Whether you use your motorcycle to get to work every day, or just do an occasional tour. Hearing damage can occur in just one ride. And the damage is irreversible.
In this overview you can see for each speed, how long you can ride without risk of hearing damage.
|Average volume of wind under a helmet
|Maximum time without risk of hearing damage
|120 km/hour||98 dB||7 minutes|
|140 km/hour||102 dB||3 minutes|
|160 km/hour||106 dB||90 seconds|

As a keen motorcyclist, naturally you have already been using MotoSafe earplugs from Alpine for a long time. This keeps you well protected against long-term hearing damage by wind noise under your helmet.
As a keen motorcyclist, naturally you have already been using motorcycle earplugs for a long time. This keeps you well protected against long-term hearing damage by wind noise under your helmet. But consider your passenger, the man or woman behind you, who just like you would also like to enjoy a nice motorcycle tour over the dykes.
Your passenger also suffers from wind noise under the helmet. Then talking about the trip afterwards is awkward if your passenger is trying to communicate with ringing in his/her ears. Or worse, if they have incurred long-term damage to their hearing.
Your own earplugs allow you to prevent damage to your hearing and remain focused while riding. Pamper your passenger and ensure that you always have an extra set to hand for the man or woman behind you. This means your passenger can also really enjoy the trip. Our comfortable earplugs fit under every helmet and filter out only the harmful higher tones of wind noise. Other traffic, the navigation system and of course the sound of the engine itself is still perfectly audible.
