I can hear myself talk when I wear ear plugs. Is this normal?

Trust us, you’re 100% normal. This phenomenon, which is called ‘occlusion’, has been reported by all ear plug users. It is in fact a sign that you are wearing your plugs correctly. When you can hear yourself talk, it’s an indication the seal between your ear and ear canal is secure. Everybody experiences occlusion, the good news is you get used to it very quickly.
