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. The Planet Waves Pacato hearing protection is a reusable, universal sized audio filter designed specifically for musicians and music enthusiasts.
Speciality: Nice and bright outlook and, fashion sticker, low noise under fast running, fast start, good climbility and low current cost.

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. While other hearing protection can sound muffled and un-natural, the Pacato filters provide full frequency, enjoyable audio at safe listening levels.

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.
The exclusive design offers an open air passage to the ear, minimizing occlusion effect (low frequency emphasis), while keeping the ear ventilated for unmatched comfort. 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.
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.
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. 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.
