. You should check em out yourself.

Well, they made me consider buying a pair of custom earplugs. Still have not decided though because I've been told that custom plugs are more expensive than generic foamies and DIY custom earplugs.

I know that products might work for you but not for me but I'm still open to suggestions and recommendations.

Thanks in advance!

Praying for the end of your wide awake nightmare.

I would choose to not buy anything from that guy in the video, that's for sure.

I won't be able though. I'm currently in Reims, France for my culinary training. I'm still looking for something that might work with my weird ears.

Re: Best Earplugs for Motorcycle Riding

you can get like 200 pair of howard leight MAX 1 orange disposable ear plugs for like $25. with a NR33 Rating. fantastic ear plug. as long as you insert them properly, they are great. (yes, there's a proper way to insert foam ear plugs)

Re: Best Earplugs for Motorcycle Riding

I did custom ear plugs. They cost about $200-$250 when it was all said and done. They took a molding of the inside of my ear. I have two, small ear plugs that fit perfectly into my ear so it's extremely quick. Put them in and that's all there is to it, no fitting or rolling of ear plugs etc.

I used the foam ear plugs prior to the custom mold. Both work, just foam takes a little longer than the other to insert and is far cheaper.

edit: also want to add that, although you're in France, I was told by the audio specialist (I went to a hearing specialist for this service) that "Westone" is the one of the larger/bigger ear protection companies. I don't think you can purchase directly from them but you can go to their website and check out their claims, offerings, etc.

I've been using Eargasm ear plugs for awhile. They've honestly been fantastic.
