    Motorcycle hearing protection, September 5, 2011

    I bought these for hearing protection underneath my full-face motorcycle helmet. I had always thought that my HJC helmet was very quiet while riding, but some hearing strain after taking the helmet off convinced me to try some earplugs. I looked at reviews for several different brands and styles (loose earplugs, connected by lanyard), and decided on these because of the good review. I tried these on a 300 mile ride, and the difference in hearing strain was night and day. The wind noise traveling over the motorcycle windshield and around the helmet was significantly reduced, as was annoying tire howl. I truly value my hearing, and I will never ride without these earplugs ever again.

    The only trouble with these plugs (and I assume for ear plugs in general) is the initial insertion. The learning curve with inserting these into the ear canal is quite high. The best way to insert is to:
    – Compress the earplug by rolling between your hands
    – Reach over your head with the opposing hand and pull the ear backwards and up (to help straighten the ear canal) and insert the plug into the ear in the direction of your nose.

    It took me a few times on each side to get them inserted correctly, but subsequent uses have become faster and easier.

    If you value your hearing, especially those people riding motorcycles, these earplugs are indispensable.

    Been unable to sleep for 2 weeks. This helped me sleep through the night!, July 24, 2012

    I got this at walgreens for $4 dollars. A bigger pack with 12 pairs and also the case. The case is extremely handy, I love it. And the earplugs itself is really good. It fits comfortably (go to the website to see a little flash on how to insert the earplugs for maximum usage). It is a bit too big though. By the time I woke up, one of them fell off my ear. But it’s all good. I live right in the heart of downtown where the cable cars ring all through the night and people are walking through the streets, drunk people shouting, people partying, and smoking weeds through the night, and inconsiderate people down the hall laughing and talking at 3 midnight, not to mention that the wall is as thin as a sheet of paper–or worse. I have been unable to sleep for 2 weeks and have been seriously opting to have sleeping pills. With these, I slept through the night and all noises are blocked out. If you have trouble sleeping like me, try these first and see if it works.

    Way better than nothing, much worse than the best, September 28, 2012

    I got these as my first ear plugs, and used them at the office. They were great, they blocked out a lot of the noise, and they were large enough that people could see I had ear plugs in, and meant business about blocking out everything else.

    Cons: They’re fairly uncomfortable to wear for a long time, they break down pretty quickly, and they don’t provide as much sound blockage as some of the best earplugs out there which are actually selling for cheaper.

    I recently started using them on my motorcycle, and found I was still getting a ton of noise in through the, both pairs that I’d worn before, and brand new pairs. I tried out a pair of

    3M Single Use E-A-R E-A-Rsoft FX UnCorded Earplugs QTY/ 200 Pairs
    E-A-R EarSoft FX

    and found they were incredible.

    Much more comfortable
    Much better noise blockage
    Could keep them in for longer, and didn’t get any ringing in my ears.

    They’re smaller too, so they collected less crap in my ears, and they were easier to put in and take out.

    Overall, the Hearos are way better than nothing, but lag significantly behind some of the best of breed out there.
