The manufacturer is addressing quality problems
The quality of Quiet Time ear plugs had obviously gone way down, and I noticed that the noise reduction rating had been lowered from 33 to 31 decibels. I e-mailed the company to complain, and they suggested I return the poor-quality earplugs for a refund. They also said that they were going back to their old supplier, and they sent me some of the good-old 33-decibel ear plugs at no charge. Pretty good customer service. I'm editing this rating, and I would now add more stars to it if I could.

WARNING, this product has totally gone down the tubes!
If it does not say "original formula" anywhere on the package, then DO NOT BUY THESE!! The new formula is horrible...you will be wasting your money. These used to be the best earplugs on the market, bar none, but now they are the worst. I have been using these for nearly ten years and the last year or two these earplugs have become the worst...they don't hold their shape long enough to insert, they last maybe one night only, the noise reduction is sub par AND they are now uncomfortable too.

LOVE My Quiet Time from Flents
By Kara J Buller
If used how I used them--rolled really tight then jammed deep down into your ears (pull your ears around a bit to find best angle)--these work AMAZINGLY well from my experience. They are the highest NRR I could find online or in stores: 33. I used to contemplate moving out of my apartment in Brookly--uprooting my whole life--until I found these earplugs. I was miserable--I live in a neighborhood with lots of loud parties that go until late in the night. These have been a life saver. I do worry that I have them jammed in to deep and am causing long-term damage. I read that tinnitus can be result from excessive ear plug use. I only use them at night--but that's a solid eight hours in my ears each day. I might book an appt to see a doctor just to ensure all is good with my ears. I would hate to give up my earplugs.
