Most of us wear at least some external protection while riding a motorcycle. Helmets, boots, and jackets are usually the bare minimum for me, but I’m also guilty of occasionally overlooking ear protection needs, especially on shorter rides. Who hasn’t pulled away from a gas stop only to realize their earplugs are in their jeans pocket? But even if you’re not going far, it’s a good idea to protect your ears from wind and engine noise; most experts agree that long exposure to more than 85 decibels of sound can result in hearing loss.

It doesn’t even matter how quiet your motorcycle is; wind noise is the bigger issue. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) warns that riding unprotected for an hour at freeway speeds can cause permanent hearing loss. At 63 mph, according to OSHA, sound levels range between 103 decibels and 116 decibels, and the nonstop, high-frequency sound generated by wind can do a number on your hearing. Earplugs should be a priority every time you go out—especially for long distances.

Which is how I found myself trying a pair of Vibes High-Fidelity Earplugs over the last month. The Vibes bill themselves as reusable earplugs “designed for sound quality,” and claim to lower all sound volumes equally, from bass to treble, so you hear clearly, just at a quieter volume. Traditional cheapie foam disposables, on the other hand, normally decrease the volume of high-frequency (treble) sounds, but not low-frequency (bass). In short, those expanding foam plugs block sounds, whereas the Vibes aim to filter them via specially designed sound tubes while reducing decibel levels.

The design is simple and clean—white silicone ear tips are attached to a shortish polycarbonate stem with a clear chamber and an acoustic filter at the end. Because everyone’s ears are different, good fit is crucial, especially with a helmet; I like plugs that are low profile with short stems, which describes the Vibes to a tee. To help with fit, Vibes includes two additional pairs of different-sized earplug shells (three in total) to fit normal to large ear sizes, as well as a plastic storage case. The large tips fit my ears comfortably and snugly, even while trying them with three different helmets—an open-face, a modular, and a full-face.

There are other reusable, middle-grade earplugs currently on the market with a similar fundamental design, targeting the same users—concert goers, music festival attendees, and, yes, motorcycle riders. Most have NRR or SNR ratings on the packaging; NRR (Noise Reduction Rating) is an American ISO standard for noise reduction, while SNR (Single Number Rating) is used internationally to classify potential for noise reduction in decibels (dB). The higher the rating, the greater the noise suppression. Vibes says it provides approximately 22 dB reduction across frequencies (15 dB NRR).

I tried the Vibes in several scenarios; with a full-face helmet around town, and a full-face helmet on the highway; with an open-face helmet around town and then on the highway; and with a modular helmet, mostly at highway speeds. In all cases, the plugs went in easily and we came away impressed with their construction, fit, and at low speeds, somewhat improved sound quality in every case. But there are a few caveats.

On easy cruises, there was a moderate reduction in ambient sound volumes, yet I could still hear tunes coming through the installed Packtalk speakers on my Arai DTX full-face more clearly than with foam plugs, especially at lower speeds around town (30–40 mph). There was some overall deadening of sound; the lows were muddy and obviously songs weren’t as clear as without plugs because there’s something in your ear canal, but the trade-off was tolerable. The plugs are indeed low profile, but their stem works great as a grip when you want to remove or reposition them. Because they’re less bulky than some other plugs, the Vibes weren’t pushed out by the heavily padded Arai either.

Where the Vibes fall short is on noise suppression at higher speeds; they may aim to lower outside noises while keeping sound quality high, but the sound quality of wind is of no concern to me; I just want less of it, full stop. That said, on the highway, I could still hear Bluetooth music in my Arai but it wasn’t all that clear (as compared to wearing no plugs) and the high-frequency wind noise still felt intrusive. And with the open-face and modular lids at speeds above 50 mph, wind easily overwhelmed the Vibes, though the din was lessened a bit. More impressive was the fact that the Vibes were still comfortable even after a couple of hours, and that was the case around town as well as on the highway, no matter which helmet I had on.

I can see how the Vibes are better suited to musical events like concerts, where more distinction between highs and lows is preferable. But using them to suppress the unrelenting wall of sound you’ll hit on a high-speed ride feels like bringing a toothpick to a knife fight. And even listening to tunes on your iPhone, you just don’t need the kind of clarity you’d want at a concert, and the Vibes plugs don’t block nearly enough wind noise; I got better results managing the roar with the cheapie foam plugs (though those also muffled my music more). Another ding is the plastic clamshell case—it’s a good idea as far as storage goes but you can’t attach the case to anything, so you’re constantly fishing around for it. The plugs themselves are fairly small too and potentially easy to lose; some sort of corded attachment might be a good option.

For lower speeds on casual rides, I have to admit the Vibes deliver decent results, even if they muffle in-helmet music a bit. But because of their comfort, I didn’t ever mind having them in, so if nothing else, they’re still doing some good and I’ll keep them around for short hops; $23.99 is a small price to pay for at least basic hearing protection. For touring though, I’ll stick to foam. And I’ll probably forget those at the next gas stop.
