Ear Plugs

I think I have found the best ear plugs to block out unwanted noise while riding. They are called "Natural Ear Plugs". www.earplugsonline.com I have been using them for about three years now. They are reasonably priced and last for 35 time uses.

I'm writing this indorsement because last week after riding with my group to a restaurant I forgot to install them after lunch. While group riding I could not stop to install them. What a difference!

They have the following features:Waterproof. You can swim with them. You can still hear other people talking, sirens, horns are muted but you can still hear them, wind noise is gone.They are not foam, rubber, or silicone but a clay like material that doesn't fall out when putting on your helmet.

I have no financial interest in this company. Just trying to help other riders and that's what this forum is all about.

I wish I would have had some of these options available when I was on the flightline all those years ... I wore the standard "EAR" foam earplugs (and still do) ... but they are obviously not as good as either of these options. My concern is that I don't want to block out too much of the noise ... I like to listen to music (or my back seater) via my headset in my helmet, and hear outside traffic noises. The ones from Radian look almost like they would be too good at cutting out noise.

Oh yeah. Get the custom molded ones for sure. Buy them once and unless you lose them they will last you forever. Mine I have had for 15 years now and they are still soft and supple. Easy in and easy out too. Sure do like them.

Marv posted this once before a couple of years ago. I tried them at the time and have been using them daily (different pairs :0 ) since. Inexpensive, very effective easy to use. I recommend the disposable/reuseable ones.

I only use my molded ones for the range. I bought a closed helmet that does well with noise.

I have been using Howard Leigh Fusion (blue ones)
I used to have custom molded ear plugs, but lost them.
Tried these and love them. I spritz them with a small spray container of water. And they slide in
very easy and seal well.
Bought ten pair on EBay, cheap.
Keep a pair in the glove box and also in each of my riding jackets.

I have a soft spot for earbuds that double as hearing protection.

Having tried several different types of ear plugs (foam to custom and in between), I have found that my go to pair are Baby Blues from Etymotic. They are easy to insert and remove, are extremely comfortable, and don't leave my ears ringing after a long ride. As a rider with hearing loss, I urge all to find and use ear protection when riding. I did not care for my hearing (power equipment, loud music, riding, etc.) when younger and am paying the price now. The cost for replacement hearing aids for me cost as much as a new 400. Fortunately I am not in need of a new scooter.
