Noise Cancelling Ear Plugs

I want to purchase a pair of noise cancelling ear plugs. I do still want to be able to listen to my music and be able to hear if I have to take a phone call through my Scala Rider bluetooth. What ear plugs do you recommend to drown out the exhaust noise?

Re: Noise Cancelling Ear Plugs

Take your pick. You can buy the cheapo single-use foam earplugs. Or you can buy the filter style ear plugs like that from Alpine. If you go the filter style earplugs look for ones with soft filters, much more comfortable under the helmet.

I feel you might be trying to have your cake and eat it too. Do you currently ride without any earplugs?

I don't take phone calls on my bike for the same reason I don't take phone calls when I am driving, but I can still hear my music just fine through my Sena using the Alpine Race Filter earplugs. I also don't have a loud exhaust. You don't want noise cancelling anything on the road because you need to hear your surroundings. Earplugs are about lowering the db's from a damaging level to a level deemed safe for your hearing protection and their main focus for us motorcycle riders is wind noise.

I like the 3M foam earplugs. They kill the wind and road noise, but I still can hear nearby traffic, sirens, horns, and music, phone calls, and intercom.

I use eargasm high fidelity ear plugs they work pretty good I'm able to hear my music or podcasts on the highway doing long distance on my fjr. They really cut down the outside noice yet take in what they're right against.

Stopped the ringing ears after 8 hour riding days. 30 bucks is steep but they come with a. Keychain canister and they're infinity reusable as far as I can tell. Have more than 200 hours on my current set.

Re: Noise Cancelling Ear Plugs

i ride have ridden with with some custom made noiseguard ear plugs that i had made 4 years ago. no complaints but they did take a bit of getting used too. as with most of the responses here, they work well at filtering and i can hear my senna with no complaints. my only dislike is the the swampy feeling i get after use and the fact my ears feel like they are suffocating after extended use.

I tried the eargasm plugs from Amazon but they didnt seem to fit me right then again I have weird ears so it's always been tough for me to find a good fitting pair of in-ear buds. I do remember the packaging was very well laid out so the price wasn't too bad considering the options offered out of the box. Open to suggestions for brands that fit people with weird ears, lol.
