You MUST protect your ears, otherwise you will eventually lose some of your hearing, or at the very least get tinnitus.
^ This can't possible be stressed enough. Especially constant wind buffering (due to pressure) is enough to cause damage. Damage takes many years to be noticeable and by then you live with it forever (similar to how skin cancer works).

Oh, how I wish I wasn't an idiot when young and wore earplugs then... Tinnitus sucks, even if it's only minor in my case.

I wear the Hearos Xtreme Protection Series high-end foamies with NRR 33. They work great, and as many people will say, they aren't just about protecting hearing - they also help with concentration and enjoyment of the ride, and I can hear my Sena headset much better.

I have two pair of really nice ones, they take the very high notes but leave almost all of the bass notes .. and almost do not reduce the sound, so they take all the wind noise but leave me to hear my bike and my surroundings :) .. GREAT !! .. also after having them in for less then 1 min I sometimes forget I have them in .. I sometimes try to put my sec pair in be corse I have forgotten I already have put them in  :112: haha

These are absolutely the best I have tried and what I'm always using. I have narrow ear canals so I split one wax ball into two pieces. I use a pair for a few times and then toss them.

Have tried so many over the years. I also play drums. These are by far the most comfortable and affordable earplugs I have ever owned.

I've been using these for years: https://www.moldex.com/product/sparkplugs/

They're all day comfortable and have a great db rating.

I wonder if those wax ear plugs come in cherry or grape flavor. They look delicious.

BTW: Anyone remember the candy wax lips when you were a kid (maybe only a US thing). That was the first thing I thought of when I saw the wax ear plugs

I use MAX Howard Leight disposable.. Get them from Revzilla, you can probably get them cheaper on line..

Once you start wearing ear plugs you won't go back.
