dude no doubt.. give it a shot! it might feel a little different at first but its totally normal as it's something different.. I feel like I can think more about what I'm doing and allows me to get "in the zone" better I feel weird now if Im on the track without them.

Cuts a lot of the regular noises and let's me tune into the engine. Like music. Well at least until the voices in my head ring out.

I wear mine all the time. Just don't feel right w/o them. I tried the MP3 player a couple of weeks back and did not like it that much, maybe on a long open highway ride.

I have my hearing tested at work every year and it is still exceptional, so I hope to keep it that way. I work around jet engines all the time so it is like second nature to put a pair in. The couple of times that I did not ride with them I wish I did.
