EarPlanes® have answered the question millions of travelers ask each year. “How do I keep my ears from hurting while flying?” According to the American Academy of Otolaryngology, ear pain due to rapid changes in air pressure on an airplane is not only an annoyance, but can also lead to hearing loss. EarPlanes is the only product on the market that is proven to protect ears from pressure changes.
“Our research shows that one in three people suffer from ear discomfort during air travel—this is a common problem that previously had no solution,” said Drew E. O’Connell, CEO of Cirrus Healthcare. “EarPlanes is the first product to address this health concern, which has led to our recognized standing as a trusted market leader for over 12 years.”
Developed by Cirrus Healthcare Products, EarPlanes is a patented pressure-regulating earplug that reduces discomfort, clogging, and popping associated with air travel. The exclusive CeramX™ filter in EarPlanes regulates air pressure naturally, eliminating ear pain caused by air pressure changes during the aircraft’s take-off and descent.
EarPlanes, which was created in conjunction with the House Ear Institute—the leading institute in hearing research and ear surgery—was tested by the US Navy and approved by flight attendants. A recent study conducted by a major U.S. airline cited that EarPlanes helped alleviate Ear Block, a condition brought on by constant pressure change which is known to be one of the major reasons for Worker Compensation Claims. EarPlanes is the recommended Onboard Service Safety Requirement for flight crews of this airline.
In addition to alleviating ear pain during air travel, EarPlanes act as noise suppression earplugs, filtering out much of the high frequency noise generated by aircraft engines.
