Essential ear protection for watersport lovers

Prevent swimmer’s or surfer’s ear or other in-ear infections with SnugsAqua Protect. Custom-fit creates the perfect in-ear seal for maximum waterproof protection; this limits the ear canal’s exposure to cold, chlorinated or contaminated water and reduces risk of infection. Available with (or without) an Awareness filter. Perfect for swimming, surfing, and all other water sports.

Designed to give the perfect canal seal, SnugsAqua (Protect) will protect your ears when in the water.

New SnugsAqua (Protect) with Awareness Filter, uses DR 5dB attenuated filters which retain spatiality and sound directionality, on the water specifically as they are waterproof. Keep your ears dry, clean and ventilated while hearing everything around you. Surfers and Triathletes love this product as they can hear everything without any spatial distortion while keeping their ears dry.

3D printed for you in a medical grade soft silicone using special colours of red and blue fluorescent, designed to be seen easily when in the water, with lanyard supplied to keep your swim plugs together.

Lacquered for a smooth hygienic/cleanable surface, allowing for years of use. Simply a better, more environmentally friendly option; non-toxic to people, our planet (including our oceans) compared with plastic based or disposable foam earplugs.

Snugs Aqua is the perfect choice for both In and On water activities: such as: Swimming, Lane Swimming, Open Water swimming, Triathlon Swimming, Synchronised Swimming, Water Polo, Diving, Board Diving

On Water activities include Surfers, Sailing with Crew, Sailing alone, Powerboats, Jetskis, Stand-up Paddle board, Kayakers, Canoeist, Windsurfers, Body Boarders, Kitesurfers, Wake boarders and Waterskiers.


Professional custom fitting

SnugsAqua tips are custom-fitted using your physical ear impressions of each ear. To get this done, you need to visit an audiologist. It’s a quick, painless procedure where they inject a foam solution into your ear to make an exact mold. This ensures your Snugs fit perfectly. And you only need to do it once.

Please note: The audiologist will charge you separately for the impressions – this is not included in the price of your Snugs.


How to get custom fitted in your country

Sarah Jackson, Professional Windsurfer & Instructor

“The SnugsAqua (Protect) with awareness filter is amazing for being able to still have a conversation on the water, so I don’t have to keep taking my plugs in and out. It’s just like normal but I know I’m protecting my ears at the same time so it’s the best of both worlds!”

Frequently asked questions

SnugsAqua tips help prevent ear infections and problems such as swimmer and surfer’s ear. As they are made from your physical ear impressions, they provide a perfect canal seal, which prevents water getting into and damaging your ears.

If you are continuously exposing your ears to cold water, then your ears will naturally start to protect themselves and ‘close up’; the bone of the ear canal develops multiple bony growths called exostoses. Over time this will develop to partial or complete blockage of the ear canal, causing hearing loss and also makes your ears more susceptible to ear infection. This is called surfers ear; if you are a surfer or do other watersports, then it is important to use earplugs to protect your ears and their long-term health. For more details on the need to protect your ears in water, see our blog on Snugs in the water

With Filtered plugs you still hear everything around you, while maintaining the waterproof seal. Using the DEC DR 5 db attenuated waterproof filter in our Swim ‘m’ Surf designed Snug, allows surfers to hear the waves and have maximum spatial awareness. Swimmers can now hear their friends and swimming instructors. All the time maintaining a waterproof seal to ensure cold or chemicalised water does not get in.

Keep your ears dry, clean and ventilated while hearing everything around you.

Our filter ensures a constant air flowing through the ear, this ventilation minimises the occlusion effect and avoids irritation within the ear canal.

Surfers love this product as they can hear everything without any spatial distortion while keeping their ears dry.

Supplied with DEC’s DR 5dB attenuated filters. The best attenuated filters in the world CE certified to EN352.
