With a noise reduction rating (NRR) of 27 decibels (dB), Moldex Rockets get an overall rating of 3.8 stars out of 5 stars from users at Amazon.com for blocking annoying sounds. However, they get good reviews for comfort, with at least one motorcycle enthusiast saying they're the only brand that will stay in his ears. Owners also like that they are reusable, and the PVC-free material is easy to easy to clean.
Decidedly mixed reviews. Moldex Rockets have an NRR of 27 dB and get less-than-enthusiastic reviews for blocking loud, annoying sounds. Some users, however, really like them and say they work fine; one even finds them effective for motorcycle noise. They seem to get their best reviews from sleepers who don't need to block the sound of loud snoring, although a few happy wives say they can now sleep comfortably next to their snoring husband.
One thing users really like is the carrying case that holds the earplugs.
Soft and comfortable. Reviewers at Amazon.com and EarPlugStore.com describe the Moldex Rockets as soft and comfortable. Even those reviewers who gave the Moldex Rockets a poor rating remark on how comfortable these earplugs are. They are reported as being simple to insert. Unlike foam earplugs, which require a multistep process to get them to sit right, Moldex Rockets are simply pushed into the ear until they seal properly.
Inexpensive and reusable. The favorite feature of all the reviewers is the reusability of the Moldex Rockets. The Moldex Rockets are made of a PVC-free, soft, durable material, which according to one reviewer at EarPlugStore.com, is easy to clean.

Users like that they are reusable and find them soft, comfortable and effective. One user says they are not good for very small ears, even though they say they are, and several say they don't block the sound of snoring very well.

Review Credibility: Very Good EarPlugStore.com is an online retailer dedicated solely to earplugs and hearing protection. There are fewer user reviews here than on Amazon.com, but the users are knowledgeable about earplugs and have often tried multiple types. Moldex Rocket earplugs have just a handful of reviews, but they earn an overall rating of 4.7 out of 5 stars. Customers say the earplugs fit well, are comfortable and work well with motorcycles. They also like that Moldex Rockets are reusable and easy to wash. One complains of a poor fit.

Review Credibility: Good Iron Chef, an Australian motorcyclist, takes eight brands of earplugs for a test drive. It's unclear if he'd recommend any of these plugs. He says the Moldex Rockets work very well and are particularly easy to insert, with a good fit. It is one of his top two ear plugs in this post, and in a later post (2007) he says he used the Moldex, but he isn't that happy with any earplug he's tried.

Review Credibility: Fair Kerry Kubilius, About.com's Eastern Europe travel guide, lists 10 top performing earplugs. However, there's no indication that she actually tried out all of the plugs, or what her criteria are for choosing the top earplugs for travel. Moldex Rocket earplugs come in second on her top 10 list because they are easy to insert, already pre-molded to fit the ear canal and come with their own travel case.
