Motor and wind noise are damaging for the hearing. From a speed of 100 km per hour a motorcyclist is exposed to noise that exceeds 90 decibel. The law prescribes a hearing protection when the noise is above 85 decibel. Regular noise above 80 decibels will irrevocably lead to hearing damage. Wind noise is a big problem for motorcyclists. It not only leads to hearing damage, but also to a weaker concentration. According to several helmet tests not one helmet offers sufficient hearing protection.

MOTOSAFE TESTED AS BEST BY MOTORRAD
The German prominent magazine Motorrad tested the Alpine MotoSafe as best. The earplugs were tested on comfort, suitable attenuation and other things. The MotoSafe received the verdict “sehr gut” with 92 out of 100 points making it the best earplug.
MotoSafe earplugs are produced from very soft flexible and durable AlpineThermoShape material. Due to the warmth of the ear it adapts to the shape of the auditory duct. Therefore, MotoSafe is very comfortable to wear. MotoSafe earplugs with special wind noise filters are an open system, so that one has no feeling of isolation.
DURATION OF USE
The lifespan of MotoSafe earplugs depends on the frequency of use. Keeping the earplugs clean prolongs the lifespan.

Not as good as I thought they were going to be. Reached my destination with my ears ringing !! not a patch on the cheap foam ear plugs you can buy from any builders stores. Wasted £16.00 on these
Good fit once you get used to putting them in & nice to have a choice of db reduction. Very effective but sat nav still clear.
Try them :)
With these, the noise is reduced, but you can still hear all important warning noises around you.
These arrive nicely packaged and have a small carry pouch to transport the plugs in. On first inspection I thought these are never going to work, after all, the noise filters are small plastic inserts that slide into holes that go straight through the clear silicone plug (MotoSafe contains two different and exchangeable wind noise filter pairs for standard and higher attenuation - advertising blurb)...
Any way, this morning I was going to test these out... I opted for the yellow - higher filter, reasoning if it was safer for my ears to go this way.
First impression - noise inside my helmet was comfortable - no "white noise" better than I expected.
OK, turn satnav on - - - my ear drums nearly exploded..........I had forgotten to turn down the volume settings.
I quickly pulled over and lowered the Zumo to 35%.
Back on the road, Holy shmoly, I could hear everything crystral clear. Right now onto the motorway - 70mph everything still audible and intelligible.
I wear a Arai Tour X4 Helmet, not exactly quiet, but now I can understand my satnav.
I have yet to try the audio quality of the intercom, but going on the Zumo clarity - I doubt I will have any issues - I will update when tested.
So for a set of pricey(ish) ear plugs, that I thought wouldn't cut the mustard - I have to award Top Marks!
Dont know how or why they work - but work they do.
I hope this little review helps someone make an informed decision, and have similar pleasing results.
