Ear plugs and the startle reflex

I was just wondering if anyone has found ear plugs useful for reducing the startle reflex? I tried some cheap ones from Poundland but found that they made my ears sore wearing them every day & I couldn't get used to speaking at a normal volume with them in. I've been looking at the Calmer ear plugs & the Vibes ear plugs. Has anyone got any experience of these or could recommend another brands?
