Motorcycling earplugs hearing protection
Eartech hearing protection motorcycling - earplugs.
This Eartech motor plug is great for riding a motorbike and for people who are into motor sports - especially those who wear a helmet. Noise levels under motorcycle helmets can be very high. Above about 65 km/h or 40 mph the wind noise generated by the airflow over a motorcycle and rider exceeds the noise from the motorcycle itself. 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.
