I use wax ones that when warmed up mould them selves the ear. Of course not 100% effective but they do make a difference. I also use them on the noisey buses and trains & london tube. Do a search in ebay for "wax earplugs" or if you are in hospital at the moment get a visitor to go to thje local pharmacy for some. I would be surprised if they dont have any.
Maybe other people here would like to comment on other types of ear plug not made of wax as I am always looking out for better options.
These are the last ones I bought
I have not found any wax ones on sale, but I have bought some soft foam ones ready for future use. I have tried them at home and I doubt they will be much good.
its takes a little practice to get them to work as they have to be warmed up and your fingers can only do it so much so once in the ear canal in a rough shape have to allow to warm up to be able to mould into shape, in situ - a warped cone shape I find. You can still hear things thru them but not at a distracting level I think, depends on how well you have massaged them into shape of course.
