Riding an allroad touring motorcycle and protecting one of the sensitive senses, hearing is very important for the quality of life. From the riders point of view, the noise mainly comes from the air turbulence over and around the helmet. The hearing protection effect is usually given in decibels (Single Number Rating SNR or Noise Reduction Rate NRR) showing how much noise can be reduced from the total amount of dB. Most of the motorcycle riders use passive earplugs for hearing protection and there is a wide selection of different types, shapes and brands. The exact fit and the right method of placing the earplug in the canal, makes all the difference.
When the roll is narrow and wrinkle free, it`s also easy to insert in the ear canal and you do not need to hold it in place. The best fit, wearing comfort and audio integration comes with the custom made silicone earplugs.
One down side of custom made earplugs is that the human ear canal changes over time and the earplugs start pressing at some later point.
The custom made MP3 -earplugs with speakers suffer from the narrow space in the ear canal and lower quality of the sound. West of New Paltz, over a mountain road with hairpin turns, sits the Hudson Valley Resort in the town of Kerhonkson. We don't know all the folks who gathered to jam in the lobby, but, above right, you can see Rick Snyder on guitar and Bill Wisnowski (My Dad's Truck) on fiddle.
Folk Festival's stalwart played our showcase for the 2nd year in a row. It took me a little while to warm up to this one, but Ben eventually got his hooks into me. Take one part James Taylor, add some John Prine, throw in a dollop of Harry Chapin, and you have the voice of Joe Iadanza. Once I looked at the credits on the CD liner, I was no longer surprised at the aural excellence surrounding Jenny Goodspeed's perfectly shaped, passionate vocals. While there is some resistance for this guitar-centric reviewer to songwriters whose main instrument is the piano, there have to be exceptions.
When we first saw Shannon as lead singer for the Guy Mendilow Band, we were unaware of her full capabilities. The Creeking Tree String Quartet - The Soundtrack (2007), Side Two (2005), The Creeking Tree String Quartet (2002) A short while ago, I read a book called The Bear Comes Home by Rafi Zabor about a talking , sax-playing bear. The earplugs combine sound-eliminating foam with a small driver that plays soothing sounds like white noise, ocean waves, and rain drops. Hush claims that the smart earplugs eliminate up to 70 db of volume, and let in ambient sounds for 8 hours on a single charge. The three engineering students at UC San Diego that created Hush, which was initially funded by $600K worth in Kickstarter donations, just received the Cool Idea! Hush, which will be sold for about $150, hopes to launch by late summer 2015, and you can pre-order the plugs at the Kickstarter site now. Generally helmets are relatively poorly noise insulated and perhaps the best feature from hearing protection point of view would be the aerodynamic shaped. Basically the higher the SNR (EU) or NRR (US) value, the better the noise absorption effect.
It classifies the hearing protectors according to attenuation ability and safe use in noisy environments. There are disposable memory foams, reusable and custom made silicone earplugs at the market. Rolling and inserting the earplug into the ear canal can be also challenging, but once you know the right method, you are able to reach the best attenuation level with the earplugs in question. Simply roll and press the plug first slowly and carefully in your fingertips and then gradually with more force until you have a wrinkle free and narrow roll. The space is generally too small for several miniature high quality speakers which would be able to generate together a proper sound quality for music. With her whiskey alto and good looks, we expected to see some time spent as a lead singer for a band.


The comparison that jumps out at this listener is their sonic resemblance to Peter, Paul and Mary.
Each of the three singers has a solid, smooth delivery so necessary for songs that seek to buoy the spirit.
This CD, with its mostly traditional songs allows her the full clear soprano range as a singer of historical Irish folk music. Bruce's songs tend to be hard-charging, propelled by fast-fretted patterns and jaunty strumming.
The poetry in the narrative was so evocative of jazz itself that it awoke in me the desire to once again lose myself in the complexities of my old favorite tracks by Miles Davis, John Coltrane and Cannonball Adderley.
After they appeared in a Friday night tricentric showcase, they were the word(s) on almost everybody's lips.
This CD, with its mostly traditionalA  songs allows her the full clear soprano range as a singer of historical Irish folk music. But tossing in standard earplugs to block out excess sounds, from inside and outside, can cause problems when that alarm clock rings. And thanks to the earplugs’ Bluetooth connectivity to your smartphone, and a specialized app, you can set alarms and choose which notifications to let into your peaceful slumber. The wireless earpieces are made of silicone and come with a sliding charging case (which also acts as a cell phone battery pack). So if you have noisy neighbors, a significant other who snores, or are a regular nighttime flier, you may want to sign up for a pair. Riding all day long is exhausting for ears too and taking care of the ears, is the same as wearing a proper riding suit. The down side is that the wrinkle free rolling becomes more difficult when using the same pair of earplugs several days in a row.
Riding at a highway speed, the noise level can reach 115dB and more at low frequencies (100-400Hz).
Several disposable memory foam earplug brands are widespread in the world and easily available. Note that you can use at the end all of your finger force, but at first start gently in order to retain the round shape and a wrinkle free surface. A twisted roll is not able to expand entirely and can not provide the attenuation level in question. Even if there were such speakers, there is no room for voice filtering and conversation features which are important from the riding point of view. His voice does happen to fall somewhere (pleasantly) between early Dylan and the John Wesley Harding version. Many songs are inspirational and seem directed inward for the singer as well as for the listener.
However, when Hilary takes the lead and Glen and Stuart sing backup, there's an exceptional power in the presentation. Lisa is one of the three amazing Malvinas, currently on hiatus (one of them is a new mom, we hear). His voice does happen to fall somewhere (pleasantly) between early Dylan and the John Wesley Harding version.A  A former regionally (Pennsylvania) known rocker, his lyric talent isn't necessarily going to blow people away. When your alarm goes off in the morning, or you receive an emergency phone call, Hush lets you know.
A good riding suit protects the rider from the elements, keeping the rider fit and energetic the whole day. If the roll is not completely compressed and a straight narrow cylinder, it`s too big and difficult to insert. Compared to disposable earplugs, the reusable earplugs are much easier to insert and get in properly. Today the custom made silicone earplugs have also active filtering features, helmet intercom connections and MP3 player interfaces. Therefore custom made MP3 -earplugs are not very impressive and personally I prefer voice filtering features in the earplugs and the music in the helmet COM -speakers.
We came through with no problem, but later I heard someone say that as they probed through the mist, they were suddenly facing the concrete wall at the first hairpin turn.


What we did see at NERFA was a solo performer -- a solid fingerpicker with a jackhammer thumb on the bass strings.
With a light, feather-like vocal delivery, sharp observational lyricism and hooks that would grab Moby Dick, he's a formidable talent. The quartet is comprised of Andrew Collins on mandolin and mandola, Brad Keller on guitar, Brian Kobayakawa on bass and John Showman on violin.These guys have such prodigious chops, they can jump from folk, to bluegrass, to classical, to jazz, sometimes on the same number. Award was established to help product designers and engineers bring useful concepts to market,” said Proto Labs’ founder Larry Lukis.
A good hearing protection makes the same and without any hearing protection, the ride becomes soon tired and may experience tinnitus, stress, loss of concentration and afterwards a loss of hearing and sleep disturbances.
Therefore the rider should pay attention especially to the low frequency attenuation abilities of the earplugs and aerodynamics around the helmet and motorcycle wind cover. The high frequency rage (2000-8000 Hz), the middle range (1000-2000 Hz) and the low range (63-1000 Hz).
Therefore allroad touring motorcyclists should use at least Class 4 protectors on a SLC classification. The down side is that they tend to slide out slowly due to the earwax or sweat for example.
Perhaps the same filters or speakers can be installed again in the new silicone earplugs which would reduce the price slightly.
For example SNR25 could have H26, M22 and L21dB absorption effect which means also that the earplug in question is at it`s best in the high frequency range. If you find yourself holding the plug in place, it`s simply not deep enough in the canal to begin with. The friction between the earplug surface and the ear canal keeps the plug in place and as soon as the best friction is more or less compromised, the plug tends to move easily.
The easy slide in without rolling is perfect, but I find it difficult to keep both the ear canal and the earplugs clean, especially in hot conditions when the body is working hard.
The active earplug filter simply cuts the noise and filters through the human voice frequency. Perhaps in the future these features can be fully integrated also with the mobile phones and the rider would have everything connected in a single set of earplugs with voice filtering, speakers and a microphone. Listen closely and you can hear some of his father's power in his voice and it's apparent that he's inherited the family gene for writing and storytelling.

The level of motorcycle riding noise easily reaches 90dB, even within the speed limits and 2 hours of exposure would be the daily limit before a permanent damage is likely to come. This is not an issue when using the earplug while working in noisy conditions, but once the allroad rider has the helmet on, there is no easy way to push back the earplugs without taking the helmet. Also taking the plugs out while having a brake, is good from the canal ventilation point of view, but easily leads to cleaning too. The rider can hear the helmet intercom speakers, but also speak with other people while wearing the earplugs, for example at the gas stations or when discussing the route options a long the road with other accompany riders.
It`s the easiest to roll and insert which means that the effect is most likely accomplished. While the rooms were a little smaller and the hallways narrower, everything still worked out, and everyone we talked to seemed to have had the best time ever. The only way to keep the reusable earplugs in place, is to keep the ear canals and earplugs clean at all times which is while touring quite impractical. With a right technique, all of them can be inserted properly, but with a wrong technique, the maximum absorption effect is reduced more or less depending how badly it`s done. One disadvantage of using the same memory foam earplugs consecutively is that inserting becomes more difficult due to the loss of the foam memory properties.
Washing the memory foam makes it only faster to expand and much more difficult to insert, but most of all, it looses the best attenuation capacity.
