Yeah. The wind noise and a couple of loud noises that added to the tinnitus.

Even now I can tell the difference when I forget to wear muffs or plugs when mowing the lawn, running a power saw, listening to an outdoor concert or any number of other activities. Tinnitus is louder, hearing loss is worse.

Semantics is the difference between "knowing your shit" and "knowing you're shit."

I was wearing the "foamies" at work, so I'd bring them home for when I needed to mow the grass, run a saw, etc.

I started getting ear infections while at work, so I looked into a non-disposable earplug that could be cleaned.

I ended up going with


. At first, it was because of the name, then as I got to reading I saw that they included the baffle to have a normal conversation, but they still filter out the loud noise.

To each their own about their choice of a helmet (or lack of one). I choose to wear a full face year-round. I very little wind noise (compared to other styles of helmet) and I'm not a fan of obnoxiously loud; the short of it is that I don't wear earplugs while riding.

Yep,

Rollin' "foamies" with dirty hands can create problems. As can re-using your 'disposable' earplugs.

Most of the corded ones I have used at least have a stub where the cord goes into the plug making their insertion a bit easier.

Moulded earplugs with the 'flanges' on them collect all kinds of junk from your ear canals and is a breeding ground for bacteria IF you are not meticulous with cleaning them. (I've been using Lee Sonic's (or similar) since the early 60's.)

Rode today with my EarPeace M ear plug/filters.
They come with 3 different levels of filters.
I used the pre installed filters. (mid level)
They were perfect!
