Everyone who travels is intimately familiar with the sensation of pressure changes in airplane cabins as aircraft take off and land. Many travelers have their own methods to deal with the pain. Remedies range from swallowing to chewing gum to bringing along specialized goods to combat pressure changes.

 

Folks who prefer to use technology will be able to make great use of this product. EarPlanes are ear plug-like devices that use ceramic filters to slow down pressure changes in your ears. Pain and popping are caused by rapid pressure changes outside of the body to the point where our ears are unable to keep up in facilitating pressure changes in our heads. EarPlanes work as a barrier, allowing the ear to catch up with the changing environment. The plugs are constructed with hypoallergenic silicone. In addition to aiding with pressure changes, the plugs block up to 20 decibels of sound.

 

The planes are available in adult and children sizes and use a special filter to work out pressure changes. The plugs are disposable and affordable, with prices beginning at $8.99 per pair. If you buy more than one pair, the cost per unit drops.

 

Make sure you’re prepared for any pressure changes you might encounter on your next flight.

Under $100: El Poble-Sec, Barcelona, Spain

Barcelona’s insane popularity and large influx of visitors as of late may have some travelers steering away from the Mediterranean coastal city, but just outside the overpopulated center of the city, known as Ciutat Vella, are quieter neighborhoods that offer more of a local feel and don’t come with exorbitant tourist prices. El Poble-Sec is one such area that rests between the towering Montjuic park and the Old Town, making it a nice escape but still close enough to access the sights.
