They have little pressure relief valves in them... ok.. maybe they'll help my ears form popping. Nope. The air passage provided by the pressure relief shuttle valve decreases the noise arresting ability to a paltry 30 dB. I could easily hear all conversations around me in the next flight. And the Rigidity of the hard plugs and internal valves makes for a painful ear canal insertion. Ouch.
If you want to throw away $8 on ear plugs that barely work, and hurt your ears, by all means, get EarPlanes (aka EarPains). I'll be sticking with my 20 cent compressible plugs that I can get at manufacturing facilities, by the handful.
