About Happy Ears

Founded in 2012, knowing nothing was more boring or un-cool than earplugs, our founders designed and redesigned the standard "earplug" to create Happy Ears. Ultimately, Happy Ears was born from its founder's total loss of hearing (in one ear) after a surfing accident in Bali and a subsequent ear infection. Fortunately his hearing returned, but for one year he was forced to wear a bright orange earplug in one ear and a blue one in the other. He grew to hate these earplugs and vowed to create something better. Despite one billion earplugs being sold every year, 95+% of these are still standard foam earplugs first designed in 1962! We knew we could design and create something better and we have.

Happy Ears are premium earplugs Made in Sweden. They're offered in sizes small, medium and large to ensure comfort and effectiveness for all. Unlike many earplugs sold online, Happy Ears are CE certified (CE certification is a global government standard for quality). Happy Ears aren't just reusable, but, because they were designed without any additional filters or mechanics, they're extremely durable. Many of our customers report using one pair of Happy Ears, daily, for more than one year!

Just because Happy Ears don't have extra filters or mechanics, doesn't mean they're inferior to other earplugs. To the contrary, Happy Ears reduce total volume by 25 dB with the most even attenuation of any non-custom made earplug. This is fact. Also, because there are no extra filters or mechanics, Happy Ears cost less to manufacture, which means they're more affordable than the competition's lesser quality reusable earplugs.

Today Happy Ears are sold at over 2,000 retail pharmacies in the EU, at Boots UK, Loft Japan and numerous other retail locations. We've been fortunate to be the official earplug of music festivals including SXSW, Lollapalooza, Reeperbahn and many more. Today Happy Ears are the best selling reusable earplugs online at Boots UK. Forbes Magazine has rated Happy Ears the "Best earplug for sleep" and we've received many more accolades, which you can see in the image above.

Consumers worldwide spend money to protect their skin, hair and eyes. What we've proven with Happy Ears is that with a comfortable, reusable and discreet earplug, consumers are choosing to protect their ears. Often overlooked, hearing protection is critical to wellness, health and longevity. For this reason we believe Happy Ears are not earplugs, but "A must have accessory".
