Ear plugs

Just watched a
made by a custom hearing protection business. Their product looks good. Not sure whether to buy this or not, though.

Do you guys have any recommendations?

TYIA!

I use teh throw away foam earplugs at the track, but not very often anywhere else. Already did my hearing damage many moons ago so a bit too little too late. Just have to save what's left...

I've always worn earplugs while riding. I've never gone for custom plugs mainly because I've been known to lose stuff

I like the Howard Leight MAX plugs, they fit my ears well. I buy them by the case, which lasts about a riding season.
If you're trying them out for the first time I'd recommend getting a sample pack - aerostitch sells one:

Try them all, find one you like, then buy a case.
Or go custom if you're not the lose-y type, lol!

I use custom ones that I had made at the Long beach MC show. I love them. I have used the same set for over 6 years now. I used to use the foam ones, but could not get one ear to seal very well. They would also irritate my ear cannel after wearing them for three days straight. Not fun on a cross country trip. My custom ones do not do this.

They are worth every penny to me.

I use the Leight ones as well:



Quite soft, good seal - barely know they're there. Some of the other ones I've tried put some pressure on my ear as they expand and get annoying, but these don't seem to.

I previously used these
SureFire EP4 Sonic Defenders Plus filtered Earplugs, triple flanged design, reusable, Black, Medium



Now I just use a bandana. I like the plugs and they did a good job but I got tired of the hassle of taking them out.

Bandana blocks the wind noise but still allows me to hear the radio. If I had a loud Harley I would probably were plugs

Just a way faring stranger
