Shotgun guys (skeet/trap) pros use custom ear plugs for a few hundred bucks a pair. I use old fashioned looking ear phones (I'm too cheap for the good stuff). When I shoot my 45 at indoor ranges, I use conventional ear plugs AND ear phones over them. Even rock musicians use ear plugs when performing (with speakers pointing outwards to the audience). Can't be too careful. You only get one set of ears.

You're a lumberlack and that's okay.

Great article, Cheesebeast: informative and entertaining. I have toured coast-to-coast several times, and I use ear plugs infrequently...but I will use them more frequently now.

I NEVER ride without em. My Hardly Ableson friends think I'm a wimp, and wont even try them for a short ride. Lets see.. straight thru exhausts, beanie helmet and no ear protection or Stock exhaust Full face helmet and earplugs. seems like a no brainer to me.

I also find I'm not as tired after a long ride. I think the constant noise tires one out faster.

just my 2 pennies worth

"That said you should avoid loud pipes and wear earplugs.. I fought forest fires for 6 seasons in Colorado where I used a chain saw to cut fire line. Being macho men we never wore earplugs and chewed tobacoo ( Copenhagen and Skoal) I do have some hearing loss but no lip cancer yet..."



You're so full of s***.

Great article. I never even considered using ear protection until the wind roar of a '99 BMW GS at 40 mph forced me to cover up.

I wear "nrr 32-33" rated plugs like I put on my gloves. One good tip is to pull down on your ear as the foam expands.

Is anyone aware of sound cancelling speakers (headphones) that fit within a helmet?
