Yet another use for these little babies!
My major problem is the outrageous dents in my cheekbone area caused by the cannulas. As a side sleeper the dents have been a VERY major problem for me as they can last all day and into the evening only to be repeated again. These less than 'pretty' little 'divots' were becoming permanent! So, these little foam covers have really solved the problem. I started using a pair on my cheeks and they seem to spread the pressure of the cannula on the skin. The 'Ear-mates' brand is very good for this purpose as well as being a wee bit more flexible. You might wish to try both and see which works best for you front and/or back.
As many reviews have mentioned, these don't stay on especially well; UNLESS you tape them on using silk tape which keeps them right where you put them. I've tried other tapes but they tend to get stuck to your skin more quickly as well as tending to be scratchy. Paper tape wasn't a bad option, but you must keep it very flat when wrapping so it doesn't create bumps.
So, I've been using a pair about 3/4" above the nose aspect of the cannula, then tape them on carefully with silk tape and viola dents are 75% less obvious and a LOT less deep. Using narrow little strips of tape, spiral them up the foam until completely covered, using very little tape to connect them to the cannula. (the less tape the better as too much can create unwanted 'bumps'. When using them on the ears, I use 3 little strips. One top and bottom to attach them to the cannula and another around the center to keep the foam closed around it. It also works to tape them completely, but it's not quite as soft as the foam. So, those of you who have tried these and hated them, tape will solve whatever problems you may have had. I think they are WONDERFUL!!!

This is total waste since it will not stay on the tube, maybe a little glue strip to keep it wrapt will solve the problem. Reviewed by: Yoram, Los Angeles
The ear protectors arrived very quickly. They easily slipped on to the tubing...and slipped out of place repeatedly. We just needed to add some medical tape to keep them in place, and then they were great for Dad's sore ears. He's a happy camper. Reviewed by: Cheryl, NJ
Who knew that a short piece of rubber hose could be so comfortable? These rhings are a MUST for those whose ears can be chafed by cannulas. Reviewed by: Fred, South Carolina
they work, BUT...
These work, but will not stay on the canula. have used some drops of super glue and that works for a bit, but the foam tears at the drops eventualy. Reviewed by: Hoyt M, Texas
I use these ear protectors for the nose cannula on my face and they work quite well. It keeps lines from forming on my cheeks. I highly recommend them. Reviewed by: Theresa , Kansas
Dont Move or They Fall Off
They dont stay on the oxygen tubing. I guess you can glue them on.

The idea is a good one BUT!!! they won't stay on

I am not happy with the ear protectors. They do not stay in place, and I will not order them again. Reviewed by: Shirley, Michigan
They just to hard to keep on the tubing. Reviewed by: Doris, CA
cannoula and ear soft foam protector
very good service and fast I buy from you again Reviewed by: elias, ny
These work but it takes one pair on each side to protect the hose from touching my cheeks as well as my ears. I'd like to see longer foam protectors. I also to have to wrap them with tape to make them stay on the hose line. Reviewed by: Somewhat Happy, Dunedin, FL
E-Z Wrap Soft Foam Ear Protectors
I'm sorry to say the ear protectors don't work very good, they come apart. There should be a way to seal that opening somehow after you put it on. I even tried to put it on with the opening on top, still didn't work, came loose right away. Reviewed by: Reva Z, Maryland
These ear pads are very nice. They are very comfortable. The only problem I had was keeping them on the tubes, so I used some cloth tape to keep them on. Reviewed by: Carol S.S., Auburn WA
My husband had been on oxygen for some time and began to complain of soreness behind his ears because of the tubes. In fact, there were actual sores on his ears. These ear protectors made the tubes much more comfortable for him and the sores quickly disappeared. My husband is off oxygen now, but I will keep the remaining protectors for possible future needs. Thank you. Reviewed by: Dana, Fulton, Mo
frustrating to use, they don't stay on Reviewed by: Carolyn, Stafford, VA
Comes off easily, won't stay on tubing. Reviewed by: DR Kent, Denver
waste of time and money
The item I purchased for my mother did not work at all. We put them on and almost immediately they sprung off. They are poorly and obviously are intended for individuals that are completely unable to move and even then I doubt they would stay on. Reviewed by: Bonita L, Cedar Hill, TN
won't stay on, keep falling off. Reviewed by: N. Lockman, Hawaii
Good ear buffer
The good - these things are great for keeping the cannula in place, i.e., no jamming the cannula up your nose when the hose gets stuck on something or stepped on (something I do myself way too often). They also make the hose more comfortable on your ears.
The bad - they fall off too easily. They also slide up and down the hose so you are always adjusting (when they haven't fallen off).
My wife suggested a spot of super glue. That sounds like it would fix it but I haven't tried it yet. Reviewed by: Rick, North of Houston Tx
Didn't work for me
I tried these but they just didn't work for me. Reviewed by: Jerry, CA
NEW USE. These prevent the face lines!
I finally found something that WORKS. Now I can sleep the side of my face at night without having to deal with the deep lines the canula leaves on my cheeks (that can last up to 3 hours after removing the canula). I only need oxygen at night so the "lines on the face" might not bother someone who needs oxygen 24/7, but it is a real pain for me to have to go to church or work with canula lines.
I just wish someone would make longer versions of this foam that would go around the ear (if needed) and cushion the canula all the way to the nose tips. Unfortunately, I have to buy several - epecially if I also want to cushion my ear. Reviewed by: Shari, California
Another use for soft foam
I wanted to use these on the section that is between the nasal section and the ears, because that's were I get "indents" while sleeping. They didn't stay on those sections, so I was disappointed. Reviewed by: Rosy, California
My poor ears tell you "thank you" Now when someone steps on my oxygen hose, I can feel it, but no longer think my ear is being pulled off. Reviewed by: Ev, Indiana
FOAM EAR PROTECTORS
OTHER THAN YOU NEED TO HOT GLUE AT LEAST THE ENDS OR THEY DO NOT STAY ON ALL. SUPER FAST SERVICE, GREAT PRODUCT, WILL CONTINUE TO ORDER FROM YOU. Reviewed by: CARMEN C., LAS VEGAS
Good product, will be even better once I figure out a way to keep it in place. Also very satisfied with the prompt shipping. Reviewed by: Hanna K, Honolulu
I just got these and am so glad I ordered them. I am a side sleeper so every morning I would wake up to an indentation on my face where the canula tube had pressed against my face as I slept. Putting the foam ear protector on the tubing in the area where it would typically touch my face made all the difference, and now when I get up and look in the mirror, I don't have that ugly indentation that always took so long to go away. So far they seem to stay in place OK. Reviewed by: Donella L Scott, Green Valley
foam ear protectors..... great product..... drop or two of super glue and the last along time.... Reviewed by: D.Bueker,
The items work as intended however, in order to keep them on, I need to wrap them with tape. It would be nice if manufacturer would add some little velcro strips or something to serve this purpose. Reviewed by: Doris Stine, Nunn
I purchased this item for my father who uses oxygen continuously. He finds the need for the ear protectors to keep his ears from becoming sore. Thanks so much for this item. Shipping was quick and easy! Reviewed by: Terry Tessier, Watertown, NY
The foam is very soft and would be great except that they do not stay in place and come off very easily. My recommendation is that you put double sided stick on them so once you set them on the oxygen hose they don't slip out of place. Reviewed by: Nancy Luckey, Greendell

My wife loves your product
We purchased the E-Z wrap soft foam ear protection for the Cannula
and the first time she used it she loved it. She has been on oxygen at night for about six years and has always had trouble with the cannula leaving impressions on her face when she got up in the morning,. but the first time she used it with the E-Z wrap, no more marks on her face and it is 5 times more comfortable than any other cannula she has ever used. She would not be without this item from now on. Reviewed by: Ron Tuttle, Cape Coral Fl.
Received my order in a timely manor, items were as pictured and good quality Reviewed by: Lisa, 17870
I realize these are single use items, but I've been using a set for about a week. It helps with soreness somewhat, but the protectors don't stay on the tubing very well. Would probably work best for someone bedridden and not very active. Reviewed by: Linda, San Diego
