Many people, particularly younger people don't understand the importance of protecting your hearing. Unfortunately it is to late for me years of motorcycling and working in noisey environments has permanently damaged my hearing, So I do everything I can to protect what I have left. I want to give a plug (no pun intended) to Helen from Extra Health Mobile. She provides a number of services but one of them is supplying custom made earplugs. I'm here now and have just purchased 2 more sets of plugs. I still have the pair she made me several years ago and they still look like new but wanted a spare set and another set without the speakers. Many people fear they won't be able to hear what's around them while wearing earplugs. Quality earplugs like Earmolds will allow you to hear what's going on not only while stopped, but even at highway speeds. The other advantage of using earplugs is listening to music or using phone/intercom setups at highway speeds and hear it just as clear as when your not moving, without having to turn the volume up to damaging levels to be heard above the wind noise. Long distance riding is also great when using ear plugs - Reduced fatigue, ride longer, no ringing ears after a long ride. Extra Health Mobile is located in the sutherland shire but also turn up in their mobile setup at different bike shows. I can highly recommend Earmold and more importantly Helen From Extra Health Mobile she is great to deal with and knows her stuff. Call Helen on 0411 186 989 and arrange a time to get your custom made earplugs. $65 - Available in a range of colours $235 These are my first pair of Earmolds Helen made me at the time they were a custom job I asked for with a much shorter lead and no volume control, intended for use with a Helmet intercom system. This configuration is now standard. How are these better than disposable earplugs, or noise cancelling air earphones? - These plugs are made for YOUR ears so they are a perfect fit and very comfortable to wear. - They do not become uncomfortable after a few minutes much like disposable plugs as they expand in your ears. - They won't fall out of your ears as you put your helmet on or while your riding. - While some might think them expensive if you look after them they will last you years, and over time become more economical than disposable plugs - Noise cancelling head phones are great for listening to music but not so good at protecting your hearing, quite simply they are not designed for this purpose. Typical noise levels at speed inside your helmet can be around 98dB exposure to these levels for more than 15 minutes can lead to permanent hearing loss. My only affiliation with Extra Health Mobile is as a returning, happy and satisfied customer.
