noun - Ear plugs are a device inserted in the ear canal to protect from the intrusion of water or foreign bodies. Ear plugs are often made of wax or silicon and can help decrease the middle and inner ear exposure to cold and thus lessen the uncomfortable feeling, including vertigo, that may come with exposure to cold water conditions.
The swimmer always uses silicon ear plugs when he does cold water training in the Pacific Ocean.
