Title: Custom molded earplugs in Korea possible?
Post by: Aluma on October 12, 2012, 11:30:37 pm
Hello!

Anyone know if there's somewhere in Korea I could get custom molded earplugs? I know this is available in the states, not sure here though. Any idea what it could cost?

Thanks.

I use ear plugs for sleeping, can't do it without them. I've seen foam ear plugs at many drug stores and places that sell make-up/lotions etc.

You can also find them on iherb: http://www.iherb.com/Ear-Plugs

Though I'm not sure what you mean by custom molded.

If it's for a medical condition, I'm certain an ENT doctor could have them made (I needed them as a kid).

Custom made ones that are tailored to you and your  ears. You can change filters depending on the noise reduction you want, and they are more pleasant to be wearing.

I'm not in Korea right now, do you or anyone else reading this thread know about what they would cost and the quality,  please post a reply.

If your in your home country, just get them! I think you might spend more money on running around this country trying to find what you need. Good luck
