Do Earplanes Work?

By | December 15, 2009

Earplanes are Air Pressure Regulating Earplugs that help with pain causes by pressure changes. Our editor bought a pair of them a while back, after flying with a cold and spending two days afterward barely hearing anything, and have been waiting to try them out.

As you can see from the picture, they are strange looking things you are supposed to screw into your ears like a corkscrew. We tried them, but being as we do not have chronic ear pain, we cannot definitively say that they work. We did not experience ear pain, but we might not have without them.

We’d like to hear from you, however. Does anyone have any first-hand anecdotes?
