Great to see other people talk about this. I've already lost a bit of my hearing in my right ear. It started when I ruptured my eardrum while watching a metal show in 2013. This just proves that noise induced hearing loss is for real. My bike is also a bit noisy and that's why I'm using earplugs now to take care of what's left of my hearing. I was stoked when you posted about Big Ear. I have one of their cheaper earplugs like this one. Anyway, it's better to wear these than wear nothing at all.I'm trying to look for the best earplugs I can get but it seems like the thread about it was made 6 years ago. There may be new tech for hearing protection so let's start this one.
What earplugs/hearing protection do you use?
Thanks in advance!
An additional benefit is that ear plugs prevent bugs, bees or yellow jackets from getting into your ear if they happen to get into your helmet (if you wear one). It can be quite painful or aggravating to have a little creature crawling around in your helmet and get into your ear before you can stop, pull your helmet of and get them out. Don't ask me how I know.
