This is a one-pair disposable earplug - child size.
There's nothing like airplane take-offs to get a congested traveler curled up into the fetal position with head-splitting ear pain. Planes' cabin pressure is tops among the many causes of discomfort while traveling. That's because without travel earplugs a traveler's ears have trouble equalizing the air pressure difference between the cabin atmosphere and the inner ear. The result is what physicians refer to as barotrauma: a condition experienced by roughly 25 percent of all air travelers.
Kids get bothered by this it seems more than adults. Babies especially are unhappy with the pressure changes and, being babies, cannot easily be told what to do to make it better.
Relieves ear discomfort, clogging and popping with the exclusive CeramX™ filter that regulates air pressure naturally. EarPlanes and Small EarPlanes are backed by the Good Housekeeping Seal.
New study links dangerous ear problems to roller coaster rides.
A study by the Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit indicates that pressure changes during roller coaster rides can cause ear problems similar to the effects of cabin air pressure changes on airplanes. EarPlanes, the pressure regulating earplug, has provided safe relief to millions of air travelers and can also provide the same relief to roller coaster riders. So before your next roller coaster ride make sure to take along a pack of EarPlanes.

EarPlanes are a patented pressure-regulating earplug inserted in the ear to help reduce discomfort often associated with air travel. They were developed by Cirrus Healthcare Products LLC in conjunction with the House Ear Institute in Los Angeles, and have been tested by US Navy aviators at the Miramar Naval Air Station in San Diego.
