It's been at least a month of wearing the plugs. They were a pain in the butt to get in, but that's because I used the taper things to size up and the left one was ever so slightly smaller than the right. I ended up having to wear one taper backwards and one plug for a week so I could get the second plug in. The high edges of the plugs add on to the difficulty of putting them in but at least they don't fall out. I clean them in the shower, I've actually dropped one twice and it's still holding on strong! Not to mention they glow super bright sometimes.
