Not sure what to do as it's not like i can go round and say to stop sleeping - his room isn't even beside mine so can't knock on the wall to try make him roll over.
I use them every night, can still hear him through them.
Can you can get a fan or something that produces a constant noise to drown them out? I was in a similar situation to you and found having a fan on in my room would drown out the snoring but because the noise is constant I could fall asleep with it.
Otherwise, maybe rather than earplugs, get those heavy duty over ear protectors?
Quick white noise solution - grab a DAB radio/alarm clock or whatever, switch to FM and tune into some random frequency. If you deep listen to it long enough you'll start to be convinced it's rain and other stuff, the same way dreams generally develop from gooseberry fool you see when your eyes are closed. It'll help you go to sleep.
Even a loud, constant noise isn't perceived as loud, it's perfunctory jumps in amplitude that upsets our ears because we're naturally tuned to listen out for them and then anticipate them, over and over again.
