Crescendo Moto Ear Plugs are designed especially to protect motorcycle riders from hazardous noise. Motorcyclists obviously have to contend with the throaty roar of their own engines, but a running bike isn't the biggest hearing hazard riders face. The wind noise from even a comfortable cruise down the highway quickly turns into a big, bad, blasting assault on the eardrums. Worst of all, the noise-induced hearing damage all that sound exposure causes is cumulative and irreversible.
For serious riders, serious hearing protection is a must.
Depending on the bike and the speed it's going, motorcycles can put off anywhere between 80db-110db. (For reference, heavy city traffic generates about 82dB of ambient sound, and a jet engine taking off puts out about 130dB.) There's no denying bikes are loud. However, the duration of the sound matters, too: OSHA regulations allow for up to eight hours of exposure at 85dB in the workplace. Less exposure time means less risk. So is your bike causing you hearing damage? Quite possibly -- but as any experienced rider already knows, the real culprit is wind noise. Wind noise starts as a soft rush that increases drastically with speed. At 50 mph, the wind noise you hear is about as loud as the engine noise your bike puts out! At 65 mph, wind noise jumps to over 100dB of rushing sound, drowning out most other sounds. Stack that wind noise on top of the engine noise, and your ears are probably taking some serious punishment, even during short rides.
Crescendo Moto Ear Plugs tackle the hearing hazards motorcycle riders face thoroughly and intelligently. Crescendo Moto provides NRR 16 hearing protection, with up to 25dB of protection at some frequencies. That's just the right amount of noise blocking to keep your ears safe from that ravaging wind noise, while still allowing you to hear critical sounds such as traffic signals, alarms, and sirens. That situational awareness is critical for safety, especially for city riding. Crescendo Moto also features one of the lowest-profile fits available in a reusable ear plug, allowing Moto to be worn comfortably even under a full helmet. Two pairs of fit tips (along with one interchangeable pair of noise filters) allow you to find the perfect fit that is snug, effective, and comfortable enough for even the longest day on the road. Crescendo ear plugs can last for weeks or even months of frequent use, but maintenance is important: Crescendo Moto ear plugs should be washed frequently with warm water and soap, to remove road dust and keep the Moto ear plugs clean and effective.
