Why Are HEAROS & Sleep Pretty In Pink America’s Favorite Ear Plugs?

March 1st, 2012

As the founder of the HEAROS and Sleep Pretty In Pink brands, I’d like to thank you for visiting our website, being a loyal customer or trying a free sample of our ear plugs.

In 1992, I started this company to help consumers like me who were unhappy with the quality and comfort of those products available.  I envisioned an opportunity to change the landscape of retail ear plugs.  Since discovering my mission, our USA made products have been embraced year after year and have been the #1 selling branded foam ear plugs in the USA for years.

As you will soon experience, below are 5 important reasons why HEAROS and Sleep Pretty in Pink are the brands of choice.

  1. High Quality Foam. Upon opening your free sample pack, you will be able to “feel the softness” of our products.  Our products are proudly made in the USA and, unlike others that are made overseas, have the highest quality control standards.
  2. Silky Soft Exterior. We encourage you to compare and contrast the silky soft exterior “skin” of our ear plugs versus any other.  We think you’ll find our branded ear plugs to be the softest.
  3. High Noise Reduction Ratings (NRR). Our NRR’s are among the highest available which means you can count on HEAROS and Sleep Pretty in Pink to help reduce those annoying and protect against damaging sounds.
  4. Slow Recovery Time. It’s important to know that our ear plugs recover slowly after compression so you’re afforded time to get the perfect fit.  Again, other products made overseas tend to have  rapid recovery times that not only make it difficult to fit properly but also irritate the ear canal.
  5. Value.  As we’re in a tough economy, you can count on the HEAROS and Sleep Pretty in Pink brands to help provide you with significant savings and a relatively low cost per pair.

If you just received a free sample, we hope you’ll use your our ear plugs immediately.  We look forward to receiving your feedback at the HEAROS Fan Page on Facebook.  We constantly communicate with our 10,000 friends and hope you’ll become one soon as well.

Thank you!

Best Regards,

Doug Pick,
Founder, HEAROS & Sleep Pretty in Pink

Are HEAROS Made In The USA? What Is New Horizons?

February 16th, 2011

I often receive questions about our ear plug manufacturing and assembly process. The two most common questions go something like this, “Are HEAROS and Sleep Pretty In Pink ear plugs made in the USA?” and “Who manufactures your ear plugs?”

To help answer those questions, I created this quick video to help our retail partners and our loyal customers learn about our unique manufacturing process.

I hope this helps you better understand our “Made in the USA approach” and our special relationship with New Horizons, our manufacturing partner.

Best regards,

Doug

Introducing Me…

January 4th, 2011

For those of you I have yet to meet, my name is Doug Pick.

Eighteen years ago, I started HEAROS ear plugs to help people — like you and me — comfortably benefit from peaceful rest and hearing protection. Today, that mission continues as HEAROS and Sleep Pretty In Pink are available in over 50,000 stores across the planet.
