Thanks Misti for the ear plugs

Many thanks to Misti for the ear-filters set (Xtreme HEAROS Ear Filters) that she gave me quite a long while ago. It came in very useful today.

I worked in an office which is based right on the ground level of a residential flat in Singapore. For most of today, there was drilling just right outside the office! The thing is that the noise from any form of drilling generally irks me.
Noise, when experienced over sustained period of time can be detrimental to a person's health.

I could have walked out of the office and take a seat at the nearby hawker centre earlier today. However, this meant that I would not be able to work on the tons of paperwork waiting to be done in office. The ear-filters from Misti helped make things less miserable for me and my sensitive ears. While I could still hear the drilling noises, the volume from the drilling was filtered down by the ear-filters, making things bearable.

The only challenge was that each time I have to answer a phone call, I would have to remove the ear-filters. I was hoping that no one would call me today since it was almost impossible to hear anyone clearly when there was drilling taking place. I could only be thankful that the workers who did the drilling had to take very short breaks every now and then, perhaps because they realised that the machines needed break! I hope that the workers were given good ear-filters to wear and protect their hearing.

The next thankful thing was that there was heavy rain in the mid afternoon and the wonderful thing happened: The noise stopped! Though only for about an hour. Sigh.

Anyway, many thanks again to Mistipurple for the very useful ear-plugs. The greatest thing about them is that they come with free ear-plug cases that makes it so convenient to carry them about. I have tried many versions of ear-plugs in the market and HEAROS ear filters by far the most portable. They come in very useful to filter out noises too.

I love my hearos. I take them everywhere, keep them in my purse. Like you said, the little containers are very helpful for keeping them fresh. Like you, I also am very sensitive to sound. Disharmonious sounds are so intrusive!

Jammie J.: I am glad to hear from a fellow Hearos user. Didn't realise you are one. :)

thanks sweetie. come on down for another set okay? i'll gladly pass you some others to try, but the Xtreme HEAROS is the one which covers the highest decibels though.
for ease of answering phones, i can pass you the JAM series. i use that myself because of the cords attached.
my office is surrounded by drillings everyday. and now even within the studios. there are worse things happening but i'm not writing them here, lol!
thanks again, PY!

*waves to fellow HEAROS user, Jammie!* :)

Misti: By the way, if the sales of HEAROS in Singapore goes up because of this post, please let me know. I am quite happy with Xtremem HEAROS. Thanks for the offer though.

Gosh, if I had to go through those drillings, I may have close the office if I were the decision maker.

#OCEANSKIES: we still need to pay rent, so closing is not a possibility. :(

i have some customers who said they saw the HEAROS from a blog. but when i asked which blog, they couldn't tell. i do suspect they must have read yours. :) thanks PY for getting word out too!
