For most of my life flying was something I dreaded, my ears always had difficulty popping on the flight and most trips ended with me feeling quite cruddy. Then, a few years someone had suggested I try EarPlanes, and let me tell you, this was a game changer for me! I won’t fly without them anymore, I don’t experience any more in-flight discomfort and regardless of how many stops my flight makes I arrive at my destination with the ability to hear, am pain free, and ready to go!
EarPlanes essentially act as a pressure regulator within your ear. It looks very similar to a regular ear plug but has small rings within it that help to adjust the pressure within your ear and allow air to flow in and out.
I recommend EarPlanes to anyone who has sensitive ears, or those who are flying with a cold or sinus condition. You can purchase EarPlanes at most pharmacies and other large retailers like Target or Wal-Mart. EarPlanes also come in adult and child sizes which can be a real lifesaver when it comes to your kids delicate little ears!
I personally can’t imagine flying without them, I can now fly pain free and relax during the flight. The best part is that they also help to block some sound and noise (so naps are a little easier to come by).
Note: I am not endorsed by EarPlanes, this is just my opinion and I love em!
