Every rider uses the riding gear such as a jacket, helmet, gloves, boots but they are not using any hearing protection equipment. That is why they are suffering from noise induced hearing loss. Because a motorcycle can produce noises more than 100 dB very quickly, if we hear it more than 15 minutes then we will suffering from hearing loss. And there will be a chance to get tinnitus problem.
Tinnitus is not curable so if we got it once then there is no chance to cure it. So If we take care at the earliest then we will prevent the hearing loss.
I am sharing a couple of websites, please visit them and get more information..

I got a trophy premier helmet and thou old school looks cool,but.... its quite air noisy!! Making the ton up trips uncomfortable and not enjoyable. I got two options:
A chin curtain and plugs.
First tried regular sleeping plugs and they make the ride... dull to say the least.

NONOISE (orange for motorcycle)
Pros: they really do the job. I can hear the mufflers and engine and environment but the wind noise went out by 80%
Cons: easy to lost them, but you get a metal container for them.

NOJ chin curtain.
Pros: less air makes my contacts to stay humectated? Maybe less cold in cold ambient.
Cons: less effective, 40% noise reduction
Installation is in one helmet.

Price both items: 29 usd

rock & roll baby

I've always had easy access to ear plugs (workshops and the like) and have always worn them on the bike.

Can't ride without them,wind noise drives me mad. Tinnitus? yeh you really don't want that.

Just watched this video from those guys as I was searching for custom earplugs.
The host was really fun and entertaining to watch. Just found out their website and they seem to be promising.

Yes my dad has hearing aids from a generation that knew no better . I know that I will have problems sooner rather than later but I still mostly use ear plugs on longer rides . Quieter helmets should be more researched and available , possibly given ratings for hearing protection as well as impact safety .

The problem with giving them ratings for noise levels is everyone has a different size/shape noggin.

Some lids are quiet for some and not for others.

Wear those (generic) plugs kids :smile2:

New technology has recently been announced with regard to replacing the ( I think ) EPS linings in helmets by KLIM for a safer lighter alternative so research is being done . It just needs pointing at the noise problem . As to different shaped heads how about pump up air bags either side to ensure that hearing protectors on both sides made proper contact with our ears .
