where to buy earplugs in zurich?

hi all,

I'm struggling to find out where to buy the classic yellow foam earplugs:

I know Migros sells a similar kind, but I am looking specifically for the classic 3M/EAR model

thanks for the advice,

Try the pharmacies, they have a pretty wide range there and I'm pretty sure I've seen that type in the Sunstore here.

Re: where to buy earplugs in zurich?

Migros have two types/brands. One of them is soft/cylinder shaped like the 3M ones but are somewhat hard to get into the ear (and I don't feel they work as well as the next option) and a second type that is a bit tapered that hold their compressed form when squeezed so they go into the ear canal better. They are normally a darker orange colour. Worth a try.

earplugs are probably all for ears - but (...) some other plugs are not

Re: where to buy earplugs in zurich?

I got mine from Amazon.de. Delivery took 3 days.

http://www.amazon.de/gp/product/B000J6BK04?psc=1&redirect=true&ref_=oh_aui_detailp age_o00_s00

These really work. I live in the direct path of ZRH's runway 34. The morning flights start arriving at 06:00h, and I can hardly hear them coming when the the plugs are on.

funny i just brought a set of those 3M 5 pairs from amazon uk for £2 and got someone to post it to me. Anyway last time i did an exam at the Digicomp academy, they provided those earplugs for free, you can probably offer them 1CHF. they are located on the street where the starbucks and the coach station.
