Nope...I like to hear the bike

earphones= too much distraction(unless your riding for a looong time, then, I understand)

ear-plugs= too quiet, can't hear shyt (i.e. cars, trucks, horns...)

I can hear everything i need to hear, cars/trucks/horns/sirens, takes the loud white noise out and lets you concentrate on riding. and i'm looking for MORE noise cancellation. currently i wear 33db, would luv to find 35db.

have you even tried them before?

at 1 point i was wearing them when i was traveling long distance in the convert. and i wear them for work once in a while.

considering this is basically a race helmet (as is the arai corsair) it's even louder then say "lesser" helmets, so it's really important to wear them in them. notice ALL racers wear them.

Yes, as a matter of fact...I have. Didn't like it. Couldn't hear...

They do make noise canceling inner ear phones but, I have yet to try any with a helmet on. Guess I have a phobia of placing metal objects inside my ears with a helmet on.
