abunda_amazon_reviews From left to right in photos Slim Fit (purple), Dream Girls (pink), Snore Blockers (green), Original (aqua), Ultra Soft (brown). I have read other reviews stating that macks changed the size of the Ultra Soft recently, so I am posting a photo of the packaging for mine. The Ultra Soft are my favorite (even though they are not an exciting color) because they block noise, compress really well so that they are easy to insert, and don't feel like they are forcibly pushing against my ear canal once they have expanded. The Originals are a close second (just a bit shorter and slightly more slender than the Ultra Soft), so I will use them as well. I found that the Slim Fit were somehow hard to get into my ears (in spite of being slim) and didn't block enough noise. The Dream Girls fit really well but usually didn't stay in all night (and I sometimes worried they would get shoved down too far to get out). The Snore Blockers truly block the most noise, but they push too hard against my ear canal to be comfortable for long periods. The Macks brand ear plugs have not caused irritation or itching in my ears (other brands have), but I throw them away after one use so I can't speak to durability. Wish I could say that I received a discount in my quest for the perfect plug, but I purchased all at full price on Amazon and just decided to write a review comparing them because I had a hard time differentiating based on the product descriptions.;;Reviewed in the United States on August 7, 2017;;5.0 out of 5 stars;;Ultra Soft for the Win - I Tried Them All.;;MJG;;;What happened? These used to be made from angel fat. The squishiest earplug out there. Now, they are as hard as a correction officers eyeballs. These are no different than the other ear plugs. I have plugs from other containers, still, and these are like they’ve been left in a microwave oven too long. They feel just like everyone else’s plugs. Soooo very disappointed. Did y’all change the formula? The method of manufacture? The source? These are NOT ultra soft.;;Reviewed in the United States on May 16, 2018;;1.0 out of 5 stars;;NOT ultra soft anymore! Not same squish. BOOOO!;;AnnieM;;;UPDATE: I was able to exchange these and got the smaller ones (as shown in the picture from my earlier review), which was great. Just reordered and got the bigger ones again. They have definitely changed their product without saying anything. These are not better. They don't stay in my ears at all, or block any sound. On to new earplugs due to product change...AGAIN. I just requested an exchange because either the package I received is defective or Macks has changed this product. The new container I received has ear plugs that are a slightly different color and that are bigger than the last 2 containers. Concerned because these had been working perfectly and the new ones don't stay in my ears at all and don't block any sound whatsoever.

I ran out October 2016 and placed an order for more and the newer earplugs are some of the worst I have used. The good ones (pictured left) are noticeably shorter and fatter and appear to have a smooth glossy finish. The bad ones (pictured right) are taller and thinner. They are skinny and do not do a good job of creating a seal. The noise they block out is significantly less than the old design likely due to the bad seal and more porous foam used. Buyer Beware, many of the 5-star reviews are for the old design. If anyone finds earplugs that are similar to the old design, please let me know!;;Reviewed in the United States on November 30, 2016;;1.0 out of 5 stars;;Buyer beware: the design has changed (for the worse);;Audio;;;As other reviews mentioned, something seems to have changed and not really for the better. While these new ones do feel a little better in my ears, I've found they don't last nearly as long and actually have popped out on me a few times. I use these to sleep, cut the grass, and go to the races. The old version I could use 1 pair at night for almost 2 weeks. These new ones are trash after 2-3 nights tops, and I have to take multiple pairs to the race track with me in order to last the entire day (7a-8p). Will likely be trying a different brand soon and donating these or keeping them in my suitcase for backup on trips. UPDATE: Had to go from 3 stars down to 1. I've tried for a couple months now to make these work and they simply don't. In order to get them to stay in you have to jam them dangerously deep into your ears, hurt like crazy, and even then they don't block out that much sound. If you insert then just a little more shallow so they don't hurt, they pop right out and they barely even muffle noise. There's been times when they were "in" and then fell out and I never knew because there was no difference in noise reduction. Whenever they updated this product, they took a MAJOR leap backwards. 2 years ago, the product was perfect. Now I'm throwing most of this container away and ordering from another company.;;Reviewed in the United States on July 2, 2017;;1.0 out of 5 stars;;Preferred the old version;;Amazon Customer;;;My boyfriend snores like a buffalo! We have already started sleeping in separate rooms (we both can actually sleep now, I love it!!). But vacations had turned into something I dread!

I brought three different plugs to try on this last vaca. Happened to use these Mack's first. Didn't even waste my time on the other two. These are squishy enough to completely plug your ears, and also squishy enough not to hurt your ears. I can sleep with them in all night! I couldn't even hear the alarm clock at all. And I was able to sleep next to a lumberjack (sawing logs, lol) all night!! Just make sure you put them in correctly. Roll between your fingers and make as thin as possible, then stick one in as far as you can and hold. You'll get the feel for it.
