Top 10 Travel Earplugs - Ear Plugs for Travel


Earplugs are, for some people, travel essentials. Ear plugs can reduce pressure during a long flight. For blocking out daytime noises while adjusting to jetlag, earplugs are a must. And, sometimes, you find that your hotel is in a particularly lively part of the city center, and you need a pair of ear plugs simply to sleep soundly at night.
