Yeah, I'm looking for isolating not cancelling.


The internet seems to like these so I'll be getting a pair:

Ever try try to operate earbud controls with gloves on? These are what you want. http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B008PEW9RA/ref=mp_s_a_1_4?qid=1444619254&sr=8-4&pi=AC_SX110_SY165_QL70&keywords=Klipsch+sport+earbuds&dpPl=1&dpID=41HMt-%2BxDpL&ref=plSrch

Then replace the buds with those squishy ones on eBay that block out sound in steps from a little to alot

Actually, never tried to operate volume etc since I just leave it on and there's a button that cuts sound if I need it. Headphones look interesting. That's definitely an idea.

Which buds are you referring to?

Comply tips are legit.

Anything less than earplugs on the highway is painful and annoying to me. Probably my cheap helmet, but still, prob not a good idea regardless.

I wear earplugs if I'm riding 10 blocks. My ears would ring for days if I wore headphones on a motorcycle.

That's why I'm looking for noise isolating headphones. They're basically earplugs that block noise ahs you can listen to music at a reasonable volume on them since there's no outside noise.

Ear plugs were great on today's ride.

Also I still haven't ridden on the highway yet. I'm not really in much of a rush to do so. Back roads are so much more fun anyway.

Earbuds, even with active noise cancelling, won't cancel noise as good as earplugs. If your exhaust is sociable it should be fine on back roads though. I am OK w/o earplugs under like 60.

Had a moment today. Was booking down some backroads and I downshifted at redline eek.gif Bike seems OK but that was less than chill

New exhaust is not really what I'd call sociable. I thought I'd like it, but it's a bit too loud I think. Oh well.

I'm also not looking for active noise canceling. Isolation is more what I'm in for.

Comply tips + Arai helmet + stock exhaust = good enough.

You guys wear ear plugs when you ride?
post #5953 of 6912
If I am going on the highway, yea I wear earplugs. I do think a lot of it is the quality of your helmet though. I have a cheap Scorpion shit I will probably need to replace soon.... it buffets and is loud as hell.

Anyone know anything about heated gear? I have heated grips and I want to get something to keep my legs warm.

I did with my old mufflers. Don't see the need now but I might still put them in for extended highway riding.
