Leight Sleepers Earplugs Save the Night


SMITHFIELD, R.I. (June 1, 2003) One in every six Americans loses sleep due to noisy interruptions from a snoring partner, barking dog, noisy neighbors or a number of other nuisances, but Leight Sleepers earplugs save the night by delivering a quiet solution for restful sleep. Manufactured by Howard Leight, a Bacou-Dalloz company, Leight Sleepers earplugs are the fastest growing sleep-oriented earplugs on the market.

With 50 million Americans suffering from interrupted sleep, more consumers are purchasing earplugs for home use, said Bill Sokol, Hearing Protection Brand Manager, Bacou-Dalloz. Leight-Sleepers are specifically-designed to comfortably block the sounds that prevent you from sleeping, but they allow you to hear what you need to: a childs cry, your alarm clock or a smoke alarm.

Sokol added that half of all people who purchase earplugs cite sleep issues as the catalyst for their purchase. Leight Sleepers earplugs offer buyers a natural, safe and drug-free method to regain control of their sleeping environment. With a soft, contoured polyurethane foam construction, Leight Sleepers deliver all-night comfort and have one of the highest noise reduction ratings (NRR) available in the retail market.

Consumers find that Leight Sleepers are an ideal solution for sleeping in unfamiliar surroundings traveling, staying at hotels and campgrounds, or anywhere away from home. Conveniently-packaged in pairs of five, including a one-pair storage case for easy access, Leight Sleepers retail for under $3.00.

In addition to Leight Sleepers, Howard Leight also offers a wide range of earplugs specifically-designed to alleviate ear discomfort while flying, swimming, or in noisy areas. Leight Flight earplugs, for example, are pressure-equalizing reusable earplugs that relieve ear pain when flying and reduce in-flight cabin noise.

Look for Leight Sleepers, and other Howard Leight earplugs, at select retail stores including Albertsons, Jewel-Osco, Longs Drugs, Rite Aid, Target and Walgreens.
