  • Searching for earplugs/hearing protection

    So I came across this video from youtube and it's pretty insightful. t's from a custom earplug company called Big Ear. I have tinnitus and have been having trouble finding the perfect earplugs to buy. I've tried foam plugs and I agree with what the presenter in the video said that it might work for others but it might not work for you.

    The problem is custom earplugs are expensive and I'm not that loaded.

    Would it be worth the $ if I somehow get one of these custom earplugs? Do you know a place that sells cheaper custom plugs?

    I hope you guys can help me with this.

    THANK YOU AND RIDE SAFELY

      When I used to tour on my Katana, Id wear Hearos foam plugs . They work fine.
      When I go to concerts, I wear ethyotics ( sp?) noise reducing ear plugs.

        Hey Brook,

        Thanks for posting this. I have hyperacusis and I'm really interested with hearing protection.

          Loved this video of them. This product looks great but I have to say that it's a bit expensive.

            I have tried molded earplugs over the years, and they just don't seal right, especially when moving your head around. I've used foam earplugs with the best results, but lately westone tru 20 db universal plugs off amazon have been my go to. They're only 20 bucks and come with 2 different sizes so you can mix and match. They don't provide as much noise reduction as foam plugs, but they're awesome in that sound is still natural, but at a much lower volume. If the universal idea doesn't work well for you, you can get a low profile custom molded set that uses the same filter and also works pretty well.

              Have you considered going to a audiologist to get a pair of custom fitted molds? May be your best bet, since they will be unique to each ear canal to remain in place without discomfort.
