The Ear Band-it ® Aqua Bands head band was originally designed by an ear, nose and throat specialist to prevents ear infection for his young patients with ear tubes to help keep Putty Buddies secure, even during vigorous activity.

Ear Band-it ® are soft headbands that are worn over water-safe ear putty to keep it from falling out while swimming or playing in the water. Designed for use with Putty Buddies, the Ear Band-it also works well with all brands of MOLDABLE silicone ear putty or plugs.

The Ear Band-it ® is especially recommended for very young children, helping to prevent accidents with ear putty that might otherwise accidentally fall out.

Not just for kids! Adult swimmers also appreciate the benefits of the Ear Band-It ® headband/ear putty system, and the large size will fit most adults.


  • Grip Tek Neoprene Inner Lining.
  • 100% Super Soft Neoprene.
  • 33% Thicker than the standard Ear Bandit ®
  • Slightly broader than the standard Ear Bandit ®

Customer Reviews for Ear Bandit Ultra Swimming Headband

  • 4 out of 5 Excellent product

    I have been using this product while I swim because a very severe ear infection has left me with ongoing ear problems. The product works really well at keeping earplugs in and water out. My only issue is with having ling hair it catches in the velcro.

  • 5 out of 5 Ideal to keep ears dry

    Newitts Verified Purchase (9 Aug 2019)

    This was brilliant- it meant our little boy, who has recurring ear infections, could join in & splash in the pool on holiday - thank you.

  • 5 out of 5 Head band

    They are brilliant

  • 5 out of 5 head band

    Newitts Verified Purchase (7 May 2019)

    amazing product bought for daughter after she had gromits has really helped her confidence

  • 5 out of 5 Get this product with the moldable silicone ear plugs.

    Newitts Verified Purchase (25 Mar 2019)

    I found this product after extensive research to prevent repeat ear aches and infections. Ear plugs just don't work and when your ear aches a bit you can't push anything into the canal. You need the moldable silicone plugs with the ear bandit and as they go in the outer part of the ear and are slightly sticky they form a good seal.Wear the ear bandit over the top and never get water in your ears again. Only downside is you can't wear a swimming cap to protect you hair. My ears are more important though so I would highly recommend these products when used together.

  • 5 out of 5 Excellent producy

  • 5 out of 5 Pensioner

    Newitts Verified Purchase (4 Jul 2017)

    As a pensioner I found I needed grommets inserted. I go to aquafit 4 times a week which I did not wish to give up. The ear band is excellent and after the initial wearing of the band I am no longer self conscious and in fact I have been approached by many as to where I bought it as they have similar problems. Obviously directed them to Newitts!!

  • 5 out of 5 ultra earband

    Brilliant design, easy to put on and keeps water well and truly out! - nothing else I tried was as effective.

  • 4 out of 5 ultra earband

    Newitts Verified Purchase (9 Nov 2016)

    This is thinner than the first ultra earband I bought - about a year ago and from a different supplier. I am hopeful that it will still be effective

  • 5 out of 5 Very satisfied customer

    Excellent.. Ideal for my 1yr old grandson who recently had repeated ear infections. Worked really well. Would definitely recommend! Ideal on holiday.

  • 5 out of 5 Ear bandit Ultra Swimming Headband

    Newitts Verified Purchase (9 May 2016)

    This is fantastic. Stops water getting into my daughters ear. Comes up quite small though. She's 7 and I ordered a medium headband and seems quite tight around her head. Does the job though.

  • 5 out of 5 Brilliant head band

    Newitts Verified Purchase (27 Mar 2016)

    My daughter loves her new headband... It keeps her ear plug in and her ear dry whilst swimming. Perfect to stop the ear getting wet whilst her ear drum heals. Much easier to put on than a swimming hat. Great colour too... Pink is her favourite colour.

  • 5 out of 5 ,Good product

    Newitts Verified Purchase (23 Feb 2016)

    I bought this because I have a large perforation in my ear. I had been wearing plugs and a hat but I required even more reinforcement. I must not get water in hear. So I wear plugs, the band and a hat and that works for me

  • 5 out of 5 Great product

    Newitts Verified Purchase (6 Feb 2016)

    Use this with our 19 month old. Fits well & keeps the ear plugs out of her reach & in place. She is comfortable in it and it's easy to use. Great service from Newitts

  • 5 out of 5 Ultra Safe

    Newitts Verified Purchase (11 Dec 2015)

    I suffer from chlorine allergy ad the Ear Bandit Ultra, used with ear plugs, allows me to swim without problems with my ears - I could not swim without it.

    Newitts Verified Purchase (23 Sep 2015)

    I bought the band-it ultra and some ear plugs as I suffer from repeated ear infections. Pleased to say they do exactly what I hoped and keep the water out !

  • 5 out of 5 Headbanz great product

    Newitts Verified Purchase (31 Aug 2015)

    This is the second I have bought for my Grandson who has a perforated ear drum, along with wax ear plugs his ears are kept safe and dry , would highly recommend this product, it enables him to swim which he loves so much.....fantastic

  • 4 out of 5 Ear Band Ultra works

    Newitts Verified Purchase (15 Aug 2015)

    We bought two of these prior to a holiday to Spain, our 6yr old only 4 weeks after he had grommets in. He was able to swim with confidence as the ear bands gave him security that his ear plugs wouldn't fall out. Recommend this as it's easy to use, he could affix it himself and learned to trust it.

  • 5 out of 5 Ear Bandit Ultra-Fantastic

    Newitts Verified Purchase (17 Jun 2015)

    We have a number of these headbands for my daughter who has had numerous ear surgery since she was very young. She is now 8 and we have to take great care to minimise water ingress to her ear. The ear bandit ultra, in my experience, is the best swimming band we have found. It is of high quality, comes in a good choice of colours and the neoprene backing help to keep it where is should be, which is where most fail. I would highly recommending to anyone and the price is good for the quality.

  • 5 out of 5 Very pleased

    Newitts Verified Purchase (7 Feb 2015)

    Bought ear band-it along with buddies and they work excellently both at home in shower and swimming pool for son with ear problems.

  • 5 out of 5 Brilliant

    Newitts Verified Purchase (12 Nov 2014)

    My kids love the headband, the are more confident in the water and are even happier trying back stroke, something my 2 year old used to hate! Id definitely recommend this product.

  • 5 out of 5 Ear bandit ultra

    Newitts Verified Purchase (18 Oct 2014)

    Love this product. Lovely bright colours and my 2yr old son loved wearing it with his ear plugs. Not sure if it's just my son having a huge head but the small didn't fit. Explained this and arranged to send it back for a medium which fitted perfectly. Happy to exchange and really easy to deal with.

  • 5 out of 5 No More EarAche !

    Newitts Verified Purchase (15 Sep 2014)

    I am allergic to chlorine in pools etc and suffered until I found the Ear Bandit. I am now onto my third ! The latest Ultra II is a significant improvement and when used in conjunction with ear plugs, a great ear protector. I love orange ones !

  • 5 out of 5 Ear Band

    Newitts Verified Purchase (22 Jul 2014)

    Ideal product for my child who's suffered from several ear infections. It covers the ears and gives buoyancy in the water.

  • 4 out of 5 Mostly satisfied

    Newitts Verified Purchase (29 May 2014)

    Having previously used this product for my children I found it was appealing to them and kept the water out of the ears with ear buddies as well. However, I found that the material frays on both head bands after a period of use. This doesn't affect the ability to work but isn't as asthetically pleasing

  • 5 out of 5 Ear Bandit Ultra Headband

    Newitts Verified Purchase (12 May 2014)

    Great product. I bought it for my 4yr old as he has gromits. Much better than the original which we originally purchased and it ripped at the velco in back. The ultra headband is wider and therefore looks much sturdier. The ultra band doesn't have the insert that the original headband has which is great because it constantly stuck to the wax earplugs and was very difficult to peel off. Liking the Ultra headband much better than the original!

  • 5 out of 5 Ear Bandit Ultra Headband

    Newitts Verified Purchase (11 Mar 2014)

    Purchased this after seeing a child in the swimming pool with one on. I have only worn it once so far but my initial thoughts are that this band certainly does the job for me. It is very comfortable to wear - you can have it has tight on your head as you like because of the velcro fastening at the back.I used it in conjunction with the Ear Putty and whilst getting the putty in your ear and it feeling comfortable was a bit fiddly - it again certainly was of benefit at keeping the water out of my ears. I could dive and go underwater quite comfortably in the knowledge that no water was going in my ears. I would recommend the Ear Bandit to anyone who prefers to keep water from their ears whilst swimming.

  • 5 out of 5 ear band it ultra

    Newitts Verified Purchase (9 Mar 2014)

    Bought this for my son and it seems to be performing well. It is thicker than the normal ear band it but it doesn't keep the water out completely which we knew from previous experience but our son uses this with an ear plug. Good quality and our other one lasted a year before we had to replace it with this new one. Highly recommend.

  • 5 out of 5 Excellent cheap fast service

    Newitts Verified Purchase (28 Jan 2014)

    I bought an Ear Band-It ultra over New Year. The item was excellently priced and surprisingly quickly delivered given the time of year. No problems there. Unfortunately my gigantic head meant I had to return the item as it wouldn't fit me. Again, Newitts were very fast and professional in arranging the return of the item for a refund. Would definitely use again.

  • 5 out of 5 Earbandit

    Newitts Verified Purchase (5 Jan 2014)

    My grandson aged two and a half is to undergo grommets at the end of this month, and we bought the ear bandit ultra in anticipation, we have used it for hair washing and it is very satisfactory and he obviously finds it comfortable and fun to use, think we are going to need another of these fantastic headbands in the near future to allow for constant usage, would recommend to all who need ear protection in water

  • 5 out of 5 Ear Bandit Ultra

    Newitts Verified Purchase (19 Nov 2013)

    Very good product - helps keeps my sons ears dry while swimming which is essential as has gromets. Plus it looks really stylish!

  • 4 out of 5 Ear Bandit Ultra Headband

    Newitts Verified Purchase (30 Oct 2013)

    Something that works. My grandson suffers with his ears and this does the trick with the ear plugs. However I did buy the swimming cap for him and this kept popping off his head. 2 out of 3 not bad nowadays.

  • 5 out of 5 Stress free holiday!

    Having just got over a bad ear infection, my 3 year olds doctor told us not to get water in her ears on holiday! Panic!!.. I had to quickly find a solution, knewing nothing about different ear plugs etc..luckily I found this site, read the reviews and purchased 2 sets of the coloured ear plugs and the ultra head band! Fantastic!! They also arrived very quickly...After a couple of attempts I found the ear plugs easy to shape and fit. The head band was great, never slipped and totally kept the water out her ears... Needless to say, I managed to relax on holiday without stressing everytime she got her head wet. Thoroughly recommend!

  • 5 out of 5 Ear Bandit Ultra Headband

    Newitts Verified Purchase (30 Aug 2013)

    I have found this product to completely fulfil its purpose. It is extremely comfortable to wear and has allowed me to become much more relaxed whilst swimming and to also lose 2 stone so far! I have been asked frequently at my gym 'what it is' and have recommended the ear bandit highly. Many people have indicted their wish to purchase one. I am very. very happy with my purchase.

  • 5 out of 5 Fantastic Protection

    Newitts Verified Purchase (27 Aug 2013)

    We've used ear bands for my children for a long time now but this ultra ear band-it does seem to be extra thick and snug fit keeping their ears dry and free from infections. Thanks

  • 5 out of 5 Ear , Ear !

    Newitts Verified Purchase (18 Aug 2013)

    Had the original Ear Bandit for 20 years and only starting to fail now. The latest Ultra version addresses all previous weaknesses
    [ mid brow band weakness, small ear flaps, grip o f velcro closure ] and is significantly better for only £ 1.00 more !

    We bought this item as our son has gromits,the Ear Bandit and ear plugs have allowed him to attend regular swimming lessons with his class mates at school, it works very well and he likes wearing it.

  • 5 out of 5 god send

    Newitts Verified Purchase (27 May 2013)

    my 4yr old was so afraid of getting another ear infection that he didn't want water near his ears .He loves these and never forgets to ask for his ear plugs and head band. original bought him a medium but went back to get a small cause the band stretches after a while. enjoy

  • 5 out of 5 Just the job
