  • can't keep them on the cannula

    They are hard to keep on the cannula when placing the cannula on the ear. Something to help hold them in place would be nice.

  • They really help!

    The cannula tubes were rubbing behind my ears and causing sores. Any pressure caused some pain. I tried bandages, new skin and a couple of other things but they wouldn't stay on, and they looked ridiculous. These foam ear protectors work very well. The sores have healed, they are comfortable. I recommend you put a small strip of scotch tape around the ends and in the middle of the foam pads to keep them together ....but not too tight or you might not be able to adjust their location.

  • Okay, but could be better

    They certainly improve the comfort in wearing the oxygen concentrator, but the foam needs to be more flexible so that it wraps more comfortably around the ear.

  • Will not stay on the tubing by themselves

    After less than an hour, the EZ Wrap come off the tubing. I taped each each, wrapping the tape onto itself, since it would not adhere to the foam. After a couple of days of use, they form a 90 degree angle and the tube exits at the angle. I may have to add a third piece of tape at the enter. But they DO do the job. I have not had any pain or chaffing since starting to use them.

    It was easy to insert the hoses from my cannula into the tube through the split but then the tubes kept coming off at night as the slits opened very easy. The only way I am able to use the tubes I bought is to scotch tape around each tube in the middle then they stay on.

    I believe these would be very helpful in protecting the ears from wire eyeglass frames. I have the plastic frames and a pad does help. At the point where the ear-piece widens, the pad slips and I have to reach up and readjust it a bit; however, it's still the best thing I have found for that purpose.

    Like others have said, I cannot keep these things on cannula so they fail to suit my purpose long term. They just keep popping off and if you wear your cannula at night, you are searching around your pillow in the morning to find them as they will be off and gone before morning.

    I have to rate this item very poor. I haven't been able to keep the protectors attached to the cannula , especially during sleep periods. They don't seem to stay in place once positioned.

  • A good idea

    These seem like good idea, because my husband wears hearing aids and glasses and now the oxygen over his ears. The three of them caused a of of chaffing which was very uncomfortable, so I thought these foam covers would give some much needed padding. Hiwever they have a slit down them in order to get them over the nasal tubing and they roate around and do not stay on. My husband has a habit of taking his oxygen off and on a lot so they are more trouble than they are worth.

  • 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!!!

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Good product

    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.

  • Design

    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.

    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!

  • Not so good

    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.

  • E-Z Wrap Foam Ear Protectors for Cannulas

    I am very happy with ear protectors,actually I use them on the hose on my face as the hose was causing me to get my face and neck irratated.The hose can 't touch my skin and makes the cannualas much more comfortable.

    They work fine. Tough to keep in place, but they really do help.My ears were really hurting before. It's much better now.

    After using the wraps for two days, they did not stay on the hose.

  • 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.

  • So-so

    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.
