dest_77 I was about to take my 2015 1200s to the dealer for the exact same thing, I too thought it was the wind maybe but then i hear it at idle all the time. 696 never did it. It's like a constant high pitch metallic rattleing sound yeah? If so I wont bother taking it in. Thanks.

Licking them before inserting ensured they were able to be removed without discomfort.

Of course if you're reusing them like Sonic is you'll have to get used to the taste of earwax!
lol, he does that? I haven't seen photos of him doing it, but I've seen others though.

I started with this:

To be honest, I didn't try them all. The pura-fits worked well and were comfy even after a full day of riding so I bought a box of 'em and have been using them for the last four years or so. Still have plenty left in my box of 200, I use 'em for 5 or so rides before tossing them.

I have one of these to carry them around in:

http://bikemaster.com/cool-stuff/pro...h-carrier.html

Keeps them clean and dry.

If you can't find the bikemaster one reasonably priced, it's just a repurposed one of these:

omegarider Rosso, you should try some plugs too, might slow down the process of driving you crazy.

As others have said, you actually hear better with them in as it filters out all the really crappy noise. So traffic noise is fine, sirens are fine, wind is lowered, engine is sweeter

Your in-helmet speakers will work just fine with them, just need it at a higher volume.
Thanks, great to know you guys are also using in-helmet speakers. Custom molded earplugs are probably more comfortable, but not sure where I can get them locally though. I will try some soft foam ones first.

Thanks, the local online store also has these and the Meteors. They have so many it's starting to get confusing. According to Moldex's website, it seems like the Meteors should be the most comfortable. I guess I will try all of them since I can get them in single pairs.

You should not have any problems with you audio .... maybe raise the volume a little


Cheers
Thanks again, that's awesome, I will try some foam earplugs on my next ride, disposable ones sound great to me.

In particular, high frequencies such as wind noise. Which is what kills your hearing anyways. Cars and other things I want to hear I hear just as well as I did without plugs.

I have a Sena and I can hear it fine with plugs in.
Nice, thanks! I also don't have very big ears , and I just found some Pura-Fits at a local online shop.
