Alpine Motosafe earplugs

Recommended Posts

I was just reading an article on ADVRider's list service about earplugs, and the author highly touted these Alpine Motosafe earplugs over many other brands.  Anyone ever tried them or have any experience with them?

Having pretty sensitive ears with relatively small ear canals I have found earplugs in this shape to not work well for me..   There are only 2 brands I find comfortable for long days on the bike. 

 

Moldex 6800  (30 db)

Howard Leight Max Lite (33db)

 

The Alpines look like they are not throw away like the foamy plugs I use.  Also,  both models I have noted above have a bit higher DB protection. 

 

But honestly for me it is comfort that is the key factor.  

 

If the Alpines were not so expensive I would give them a try.

My ear canals are sensitive too, and after trying about 6 different brands, the one that works for me is Moldex "pure-fit" # 6800.  I can wear them all day long without ears hurting.   These are throw-aways.

Thanks guys.  Like you, I have sensitive ear canals and have tried all the brands, including professionally molded ones from an audiologist.  I like the Moldex 6800s the best for their softness and all day comfort.  But, I was intrigued by this report on the Alpine earplugs so was trying to get some first-hand experiences with that brand.

I would agree with Ed that these type have never been comfortable for me after a few hours in my ear. I use a similar pair in the shop,  but only because they go in so easy and can be hand washed easily. But  they are rarely in for more than a couple hours at a time.

I wear the Nonoise earplugs also mentioned in the same article.  They work great but I also keep a few pairs of foam plugs as they begin to bother me on a long ride.   I've also had issues with getting them out and have a pair of tweezers I keep in my riding jacket just for that purpose.    

 

Ready for something different, I bought a set of the Alpines after reading the article yesterday, $17 on Amazon.  They make different types, I bought the ones listed for motorcycles.  I'll post something once they arrive.

I tried them, but I have small ear canals, and they didn't work for me.  I ended up going to an audiologist to get molds made, and then sent those off to an online retailer to have two sets of plug made.  They are the most comfortable, and unobtrusive ones I've used.

Excellent !!   Looking forward to hearing your thoughts once you try them.

I've been using similar ones from EarPeace for about a year, they have different "filters" that can be changed for different reductions.  Very comfortable

I am curious if any who have responded also have hearing aids.  Wondering what the comfort level of ear plugs is compared to day to day hearing aids? I have behind the ear with small tip that goes into my ears.
