    Our employees like them. Review by Rachael Silverstein
    These don't have the highest NRR compared to some other 3M earplugs, but our factory floor is only around 80-85dB (over an 8 hour shift) so these work perfectly for us. These are simple earplugs, but very comfortable - enough to wear enjoyably over the course of the day.

    We had about 5% of employees that this earplug did not work for due to sizing - it was either too small or too large for them depending on the employee. But the other 95% are very happy with this plug. (Posted on 3/27/2017)

    Great Sample Review by John Stevens
    I got a sample from this product from enviro I liked the fact that I didn't have to put my dirty fingers deep into my ear to piull them out. I highly recommend these ear plugs (Posted on 3/4/2017)
    "Easy" to use. Review by Henry B.
    Our sales rep just sent us out a sample product of the Easy Touch, and in my opinion it is a very good, simple to use earplug. We usually order Howard Leight, but think we will be switching over to this. (Posted on 2/15/2017)
    Fantastic! Review by Michael Blaiklock
    I just received a sample product from Enviro, and these are probably the easiest to use, cheapest push-ins that I've ever used. We were previously using the Nitro earplugs, but I'm switching my department over to these. (Posted on 2/10/2017)
