This Earplug Sampler Set contains 16 pairs of earplugs - two pairs of each kind of earplug we offer - providing a convenient way to evaluate different kinds of earplugs. The noise reduction levels given above are nearly equal and are provided just for reference. Pick the earplugs that fit most comfortably for you. Earplugs that fit best will also be the quietest.
If you ride a lot you know that wind and engine noise can get to you after a while. Continuous, excessive noise creates fatigue, and fatigue is the enemy of all drivers. A lot of excessive noise can even damage your hearing permanently.
Earplugs actually help you hear better. They cut down on the overall level of sound entering your ears so you can hear the important things more acutely.
Earplugs are made in two styles: disposable and reusable. Disposable earplugs are made of foam and are intended for one use only. Reusable earplugs are made of various rubber compounds and can be washed and re-used. Eventually, they too must be disposed of.
Corded earplugs are identical to the uncorded versions, except the two plugs are tied together with a thin cord. We highly recommend the corded versions since you can hang them around your neck when you stop and they are much easier to keep track of. The cords are unobtrusive when in use; you won't even know they're present.
