Suggestions for some comfortable earplugs?

I have had nothing but bad experiences with earplugs from the drug stores. Does anyone here have any suggestions on where to get some earplugs that are comfortable for sleeping? It should easily fit into my ear.

Thanks!

Canadian Maintenance & Safety. They are a wholesaler of earplugs - all different types from household use to industrial, tarmacs, rifle ranges, etc. Check them out. They sell to the public.

+1. I had a pair made for my wife. $60 at Costco. 15 mins to make the mold and a week for them to arrive.
Interesting - are these for sleeping, construction, or just to keep the ambient noise down? I'd consider some if they work well for construction - what's their NRR rating?

thanks...

Low 20s at best. Good enough for sleeping . For protection from loud noises in industrial/construction sites best if paired with earmuffs.

Thanks for the link. Stuff I deal with isn't ridiculously loud. I currently only use earmuffs, but they make my head sweat like crazy.

Not true. I have e custom molded solid and sleepers. I work in an industrial facility and proper molded plugs are as good as ear muffs.
Pay the money and get quality molded plugs.

I like Howard Leight Laser Lite: they're medium sized foam earplugs, easy fit, and quite comfortable. I've worn various others; such as 3M and Hearos: some were too big for my ears or just weren't comfortable. Recently I switched to Max Small as they're better for people with smaller ear canals, however they don't block as much noise as the laser lite.
