get yourself to an audiologist and have a custom fitted set of plugs made and you will really know what quiet and comfortable is all about.

Been using them for years.

I tried a set, but they didn't fit me very well. :eh:


I used to have a custom set, actually 2, but over time lost both.:eh:


Nowadays I just buy the big industrial sized box of the yellow E.A.R. taper fit plugs from Graingers and split them between the race trailer and the garage.

If it seems like too large of an expense, split them with a buddy or 2.

i need to get some custom ones, my ears hurt if i put them a little deep inside but if i don't, they come out. I've been riding without them for the last 2 track days and i felt better. It is horrible when one comes out and the other one stays, i feel out of balance when riding.

Alberto, I don't know about the other brands, but the ones I use come in different sizes, you may want to try a smaller or larger size.

I tried earplugs for the first time at my last trackday. Made a HUGE difference. In addition to being able to focus better without all the wind noise it removed one of the sensations of speed which allowed me to go faster. The only downside: I suddenly thought my bike was about to explode because I was hearing all sorts of motor noises I never heard before. I now know what all the bike magazines are talking about when they mention the suzuki intake honk. The intake is f'in LOUD on my little 600!

I wear them on the bike, on the plane, and even my work truck on long drives. Biggest benefit to me, far and above any other, is the lack of fatigue. You just get mentally tired trying to block out all the high frequency noise.

a big +1 to all of the above. All of the long distance riders wear them.

Get yourself to an audiologist and have a set custom molded to your ears and you will be all set. Much more comfortable and never fall out.

I use the silicone earplugs and they NEVER fall out, they are awesome you roll them up into a ball and then just push them into your ear and they form every time, then you just roll them back into a ball and stick them in a case when your done

+100 on ear plugs your ears will thank you 10 years from now when they dont ring forever.

I almost always wear ear plugs (foam type) when riding.

If I had just remembered to do the same with firearms my ears would not be ringing right now.

Also after the long ride I didn't get that over pressure sensation I usually feel in my ears. I'm never riding without earplugs again ... there's just no reason to not to.
heck yeah! With noise decibles in riding above 100 db it can damage your hearing if you ride enough. I use the soft Walgreens ripoff of Macks silent ears,

Macks: http://www.walgreens.com/store/produ...11&id=prod5011

Get them at Walgreens, they are softer than Macks... they aren't 100% the same as foam, but cut out a huge portion of noise and they are easier to get in and out and more comfortable since they lay completely mushed flat with your ear.

I try and tell other riders but they seem to not realize it makes your riding so much better!

Or my pocket... then you try and hand them to your wife saying look what a week worth of earwax looks like.... and get the look

I ride everyday and haven't seen the need for audiologist... I guess if you have money to blow that would be cool, but these are really cheap protection and do the job well.

Usually at the Gun Shows there is a guy or gal with a booth making "custom fit" ear plugs for about $10.

I would just lose them so I wear the disposable ones and change out for a new pair every month or so....

The wax/cotton ones suck b/c every piece of dirt sticks to them.
