Effective motorcycle earplugs

Adrenaline pumping. Blood racing. The sense of freedom and adventure. There’s nothing quite like the utter thrill of riding a motorcycle.

But when you’re out for a ride, with your full attention on the road, it can be easy to forget that your ears are at risk of damage. Motorbikes are loud. Add in the noise of the wind as you tear up the highway, and you’re running the risk of hearing damage every time you go out on your bike.

Tinnitus and noise-induced hearing loss are two things you want to avoid at all costs – and luckily, they are avoidable. Luckily, there’s one easy way to protect yourself: motorcycle earplugs.

Why use earplugs for motorcycling

You might love the feeling of the wind on your face when you’re on your motorbike… but your ears don’t. 

We all know that motorcycles are noisy. In fact, the sound of a motorbike engine can reach a whopping 166 decibels. But you might not have considered another reason why motorcycles are so loud: the roaring wind as you zip along at top speed.

If you’re traveling at 113 kilometers per hour (70 miles per hour), the noise of the wind can be as loud as 100 decibels. And at that level, it can take just 4 minutes for potential hearing damage to kick in. Ouch.

There’s no doubt about it: motorcycles can have an impact on your hearing. And you might think that wearing a full-head helmet will save you from hearing damage, but the fact is that most helmets only offer 7-10 decibels of noise reduction. So you need a more robust solution. Enter earplugs for motorcycles.

Wearing the right pair of earplugs will reduce sounds, but still ensure you can hear important sounds while you’re on the road. That means you’ll still be able to hear traffic, sirens and communication systems, while protecting your hearing and enjoying that sense of adventure.

Earplugs for Motorcycling

Why Loop Earplugs for motorcycling are your best option

The best earplugs for motorcycles reduce the volume without completely cutting you off. That’s exactly what our Loop Experience earplugs do. They offer up to 18 decibels of noise reduction – or you can get an extra 5 decibels of protection with the Experience Plus.

Motorcycle safety should always be at the forefront of every ride. And your earplugs should be made with safety in mind, too. Rather than blocking sound out, they use a patented acoustic channel and mesh to filter sounds. That means you can still stay alert and hear what’s going on around you, while reducing the volume and keeping your ears safe.

Plus, they’re comfortable to wear, even if you’re riding for long periods of time. The ear tips are made from super soft silicone and come with a choice of different ear tip sizes, so you can get the perfect fit for your ears. Once you’ve got it just right, they’ll stay snugly in place – so that’s one less thing you need to worry about when out on your motorbike.

Frequently asked questions

What level of noise reduction can I expect from motorcycle earplugs? 

Loop Experience earplugs offer up to 18 decibels of noise reduction – but you can also get an additional 5 decibels of reduction when you use Loop Experience Plus. 

Can I still hear important sounds such as traffic, sirens, or my motorcycle's engine while wearing earplugs?

Yes, it’s important that you can still hear what’s happening around you. Loop Experience earplugs filter sound waves rather than blocking out noise completely, so everything should still be crystal clear – just at a lower volume.

Will wearing earplugs affect my ability to communicate with fellow riders or use intercom systems?

No, the best earplugs to wear when riding your motorcycle just take the edge off the volume while keeping you engaged so you’ll still be able to communicate with others when using your earplugs. 

Do motorcycle earplugs protect against wind noise and prevent hearing damage?

Wind noise can be loud! Earplugs for motorcycles are designed to reduce the volume of the wind and protect your ears from potential hearing damage. You could reduce the wind noise even further by reducing your speed, and of course, it’s still important to take regular breaks to give your ears a rest. That’s because hearing damage isn’t only caused by the volume of noise you’re exposed to, but also the length of time you’re exposed to it.

Can I use  earplugs with a full-face helmet, open-face helmet, or other helmet types?

Yes, our earplugs are designed for all-day comfort. They sit inside your ear canals with our unique loop design resting snugly in your ear, so they won’t feel uncomfortable when wearing a helmet.

Do Loop’s earplugs meet any specific safety standards or certifications?

Yes! All of Loop’s products have a declaration of conformity in both the EU and US and are in compliance with personal protective equipment (PPE) laws. They’re tested extensively by the relevant authorities, and are officially certified as hearing protection. Loop products comply with:
