    Question Hearing Protection

    Hey fellow riders! I just watched this video about Big Ear custom motorcycle earbuds/hearing protection and I want to know if any of you here tried their products. I'd love to get myself a pair but I want to know if they're great first. Any other recommendation? Thanks!

    Just use cotton balls. No joke. They are cheap, doesn’t matter if you lose them, and they block wind noise without losing out on other more important sounds.

    Cotten balls make me think of David. And Cheap Cotten balls make me think of David and Brad.

    I want real noise reduction, not ear buds, not cotton balls. I bought a sampler pack of the highest noise reduction disposable foam earplugs when I bought Stella. My favorite was Howard Leight by Honeywell Laser Lite. Best fit for my ears, all day comfortable. YMMV. I bought a 200 pack and am still using them. You can use them a couple of times before they get groady and you can wash them a couple of times before they get hard to insert. At about 10 cents a pair you can't beat them.

    Same same , Earplugs are your best protection, I have a SenaFm 2 piece kit has the fm radio inbuilt, super cheap for 2up coms, or have 2 setups.
    I am using the earplugs with these, phone conversations are clear, caller doesn’t even know you are on the bike, voice commands are one touch ( when Siri gets it right, that is) and volume is one the outside of your helmet.

    i like to use foamies, but i sometimes think they block too much...im always blasting my sena speakers and i dont want them to blow. my sena smh10r speakers actually sound best for music and calls if i take an old pair of sony ear buds, the ones with the smallest housing, and use those not plugged into anything. sometimes i cut the cord right at the T to shorten it up but keep em together. trebel/bass perfectly balanced, and I can still hear other traffic.

    plus they stay on well when putting on my helmet.

    these things are wear items for using with my phone, but they last forever as sound deadeners for riding:
