Product category: Ear protectors

Wax earplugs

Trying to sleep, concentrate, or just simply rest in a noisy environment can be extremely difficult—and frustrating.

At Quies, we have been helping people block out irritating noise since 1918. Our natural wax earplugs boast a noise reduction rating of 27 dB, making them highly effective at protecting your ears and preventing hearing loss. Don’t let deafening sounds and loud conversations put your peace of mind—and your hearing—at risk!

Because they are made from natural wax, Quies wax earplugs warm to your body’s temperature and adapt to the unique shape of your ear canal. In fact, they are so comfortable that you may even forget you are wearing them! Quies wax earplugs are hypoallergenic and perfect for prolonged wear.

Silicone earplugs for swimmers

Children with ear tubes and people with sensitive ears can now enjoy water activities worry-free, thanks to Quies silicone earplugs for swimmers.

Our reusable earplugs are made from water-tight silicone to keep water out of your ears. Soft and highly malleable, they conform to the unique shape of your ear canal to stay firmly in place.

Quies silicone earplugs can also be used to protect your ears from dust, cold, and noise without cutting you off from the world.

Available in two sizes: child and adult.

earPlanes® earplugs for air travel

The changes in cabin air pressure when an airplane takes off and lands can be painful to our ears, and, in some cases, can cause ear barotrauma.

Quies earPlanes® earplugs help eardrums adapt to potentially painful changes in air pressure. Made from soft, flexible silicone, they contain a ceramic filter that gradually regulates the air flow resulting from air pressure differences, giving your eardrums time to adjust to the new pressure. This patented system was developed in association with US Navy pilots.

Soft, flexible, and easy to insert, earPlanes® are designed to fit snugly inside your ear. They can be reused two to three times and come in two sizes: one for adults and one for infants over 30 months.

Foam earplugs

Whether at work (industrial equipment, production lines) or at play (concerts, nightclubs, motor sports), at some point we are all exposed to loud noises that can permanently damage our hearing.

Quies foam earplugs—with a noise reduction rating of 35 dB—let you block out harmful noise without cutting you off from the world. The anatomically-friendly design fits snugly inside your ear for a tight fit, while the soft, smooth, and flexible polyurethane foam ensures added comfort.

With two bright color palettes—fluorescent and disco—and a more natural flesh tone to choose from, there’s something for everybody!

Ear bands for water activities and sports

Water activities can be a challenge for children with ear tubes and people subject to frequent ear infections. Quies ear bands take the worry out of water activities and sports.

Made from high-density neoprene, Quies ear bands keep ears dry when swimming, showering, or bathing. Available in two sizes, the ear bands boast an anatomically-friendly shape and soft, comfortable texture that hugs the ears perfectly. The ear bands are reversible and adjustable with a hook-and-loop fastener.

And because neoprene is an insulating material, Quies ear bands are also suitable for use during winter sports like skiing and snowboarding.

About us

Company details

From noise protection to active wellness
Quies was founded in France in 1921; we have been developing, manufacturing, and selling wellness-enhancing products for nearly a century. At Quies, wellness means living in harmony with our environment—and silence plays an essential role. That’s why we introduced our emblematic “pink pearl” earplugs nearly a century ago, and why we have since expanded into a full range of wellness-enhancing products, ranging from ear, eye, and skin protection to anti-snoring remedies. 
Quies has relentlessly adapted to keep up with changing times. However, some things haven’t changed: quality as a core value, an innovation-driven strategy, and a practical approach to everything we do. Today Quies products are sold at pharmacies and retail outlets in some 20 countries. We generate annual revenue of €13 million, 20% of which comes from outside of France.

A long-term commitment to quality

Quality is one of our core values. Because our company is small—we have 49 employees—we can carefully oversee every aspect of production. And virtually all of our products are made in France, with our plant in Palaiseau producing some 60 million earplugs each year.
We earned ISO 9001 quality certification for our entire product range in 1998. Our quality control process includes consistently verifying the quality of our raw materials and ensuring the traceability of our products. We undergo annual quality audits to make sure we are in compliance with applicable regulations, and we obtained ISO 13485 certification (for medical devices) for all of our health and beauty products.

Innovation starts with people
All of our products share one thing in common: they help people live better in their environment. And our strategy is simple. We come up with innovative ways to improve people’s everyday lives. Our landmark product—Quies wax earplugs—paved the way for a slate of new innovations, from our anti-snoring lozenges to our swimmer’s ear bands. 
We invest heavily in new technology and product development, while striving to minimize our impact on the environment. We have taken measures to reduce our energy consumption; we continuously improve our raw-materials and waste-management processes; and we strive to make our supply chain as efficient as possible.

Better wellness through prevention
At Quies we go beyond just designing new products to ease everyday aches and pains; we tackle the problem at the source through prevention. As a sponsor of France’s National Hearing Day, we help get the very important message out that our hearing is precious and must be protected. We also give out free earplugs at concerts and music festivals, in an effort to raise music fans’ awareness of the often-irreversible damage that can be caused by noise.
