Earplugs for Motorcycle Riders
When we think of motorcycles, a few things come to mind: the open road, speed, freedom, power, and, last, but certainly not least, loud noise. Anyone that has spent any time at all riding a motorcycle knows first-hand that motorcycles are extremely loud. Dealing with loud noise comes with the territory of being a motorcycle rider, but it doesn't have to mean dealing with discomfort and hearing damage. Whether it's noise from your own engine, from the engines of the vehicles around you, or from the wind, the loud sound you're immersed in while riding a motorcycle can leave your ears ringing, which is not only uncomfortable, but also a sign of irreversible Noise Induced Hearing Loss (NIHL). When combined with wind noise, you can experience volume levels of around 100 decibels to 116 decibels when riding a motorcycle, which can cause hearing loss in anywhere from 15 minutes to around 30 seconds!
Wearing traditional foam earplugs while riding a motorcycle is not ideal for a handful of reasons:
They are uncomfortable to wear for long periods of time
They prevent you from being able to hear and be aware of other vehicles in your vicinity, which is extremely dangerous
If you have a radio on your motorcycle, they prevent you from being able to listen to music while you ride due to how they muffle sound
We've designed Vibes Hi-Fidelity Earplugs to be the best earplugs for motorcycle riding by making them lower the volume of your environment, while still allowing you to hear clearly. Instead of blocking and muffling sounds like standard foam earplugs, when you wear Vibes, the volume of engine and wind noise will be decreased to a safer and more comfortable level, but you will still be able to hear other vehicles in your vicinity, as well as hear your radio and/or intercom clearly.
Instead of the standard one-size-fits-all model that can put pressure on your ears and be uncomfortable to wear for long periods of time, each pair of Vibes includes three sizes of soft, interchangeable eartips to ensure a comfortable fit for any sized ear. Plus, Vibes' clear and low profile design makes them discreet, and able to fit under helmets. If you're a motorcycle rider looking for earplugs, or looking for earplugs for the motorcycle rider in your life, Vibes has got you covered.
