Hearing Protection - EAR MUFFS

Any Ear MUFFS that are thin profile and work under a rf-1000 helmet that has a little space for the helmet speakers?

I'm tired of the putty ear plugs and have a terrible time with foam earplugs/silicone. Seem to have cut wind noise in half with macks silent ear, but still would like to take more out.

Anyone ever find them?

EAR Classis ear plugs; yellow foam. Roll them up between your fingers and stuff 'em in.

You still want to be able to hear stuff around you; don't try to go silent....

Go to the audiologist and have some musician's ear plugs fitted for your ears. You don't even notice them after awhile.

Wind noise WILL kill your hearing; unfortunately in the ranges you don't notice. One day in a crowded, noisy room someone will be talking to you and you won't hear what they are saying.

Good ear plugs will cut down on the noise in the "damaging" range, but still allow you to hear other things going on around you.

if you use this make SURE you have your ear canal clean so it makes a good mold.

A good set of custom molded ear plugs is great - comfortable and stay put.

I have both custom ear plugs and custom speaker ear phones that I use with my Ipod. The ear plugs were about $40 and the ear phones $300 but both are worth every dollar.
