What’s good? While hav­ing warm liq­uid pumped into my ears to make the mould was in­ter­est­ing and a lit­tle pe­cu­liar it has meant that from day one th­ese earplugs have fit­ted per­fectly. My ear im­pres­sions were taken by Richard, from Cus­tom Fit Guards, and he will travel within a set ra­dius around their base in War­wick­shire, or the com­pany can take im­pres­sions at some bike shows. But if he’s not able to travel to take the im­pres­sions it’s pos­si­ble to use a rec­om­mended lo­cal au­di­ol­o­gist. The earplugs are made from sil­i­cone rub­ber and have a re­mov­able fil­ter to pro­tect from high-level noise, in­clud­ing wind noise, but they still al­low lowlevel sound to be heard, which means I still have aware­ness of what’s go­ing on around me.

What’s not? They did take a lit­tle bit of get­ting used to, they al­most needed an el­e­ment of break­ing in and if I for­get to rub them with pe­tro­leum jelly, prior to in­sert­ing them, they can be a bit tricky to re­move.
