Earplugs for focus

You’re trying to focus on an important task at work – but your desk is in an open-plan office, and your colleagues are talking all around you.

Or you’re trying to study in your bedroom… But there are construction workers outside, and it feels like they’re drilling into your brain rather than the road.

Maybe you have a half hour commute and would love to get through a couple of chapters of your book, but you can’t concentrate with all the hustle and bustle and noise of the bus.

If you find it hard to focus, we get it. It can be hard. Some people thrive when there’s a little background noise, but for most of us, it makes it hard to concentrate. But there is a solution: earplugs for concentration.

Benefits of focus earplugs

The world is loud. And it always seems to be especially loud when you have something you really need to focus on, whether that’s your tax return or an important essay for uni.

It’s frustrating, but it’s entirely normal – the link between noise and concentration is real. Studies have shown that the majority of people are better able to concentrate in quiet environments, and that our focus is almost always lost when a sound reaches 80 decibels.

That’s equivalent to a dishwasher, hairdryer, or a busy street: all noises that we encounter every single day. Is it any wonder, then, that so many of us find it difficult to concentrate?

You can’t avoid these noises, as annoying and distracting as they can be. But you can reduce their impact by using earplugs for focus.

Earplugs will reduce external noise, bringing sounds down to a more tolerable level that won’t cause you to lose your concentration.

For many people, background noise doesn’t just affect their concentration, but it can also be stressful and anxiety-inducing, particularly for people with misophonia, noise sensitivity or ADHD. Focus earplugs can help to reduce the noise – and in turn, reduce the stress, helping you to stay calm and focus, no matter what noises are going on in the background.

Why Loop Earplugs are your best choice for focus

Loop Quiet earplugs reduce the volume of background noise, by up to 24 decibels (SNR) and 14 dB (NRR) of noise reduction. That means background noise will be reduced to a more tolerable level, helping you to find your focus at work, uni, school, or in your free time.

They’re made from super soft silicone for comfortable all-day wear – perfect for those marathon study sessions or when you really need to get your head into the game at work. And they also come with a choice of ear tip sizes so you can find your perfect fit, so you’ll barely notice them in your ears – no matter how long you’re wearing them for.

Plus, they’re multifunctional for all-day and all-night wear. Use them during the day as a productivity tool, and then pop them in at night for a better sleep. And when you sleep better, you’re more likely to wake up feeling refreshed – with improved concentration and cognitive function. So it’s another win for finding your focus.
