I've had my blue R3 since last Oct. and have about 1400 miles on it. I've got a Shoei and a HJC helmet. The windscreen doesn't seem to do too much on this bike and I get a lot of wind noise (or I'm just overly sensitive). I'm currently using some orange foam ear plugs but am not completely happy with them. Anyone use plugs that they would recommend? I was thinking of trying these DIY molded ones: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZTNOaVd67kY

I use the same ones! Picked them up at a Gander Mountain nearby. They are much more comfortable than the rolled foam because they custom fit my ear canal.

I would give them a shot. There is enough "putty" to make 2 sets. I use one set for motorcycling and the second for mowing.

I have used the Radian earplugs before and they worked fine for riding & shooting. My wife and I are now both using the Fuze custom earphones. They are very similar to the Radians except they have earbuds that you place in your ear and then mold them in place. We use them with the Sena 20S to communicate or listing to music when we are out riding.

Whatever you do, don't use any of those etymotic research or anything similar that has long plastic/hard stalks. You will **** up your ear trying to put on/take off your helmet.

Yeah I am finding this out. Put my exhaust up for sale because I cannot stand wearing ear plugs. I really need to get a new set that are comfortable. I have 10 pairs of 3M plugs that are good quality but man my ears feel like crap.

I picked up a pair of "no noise motorsports earplugs" Haven't tried them out yet but the reviews on Amazon are pretty good.

+1 on the Surefires
These are great plugs as they block out a lot of the sounds you dont want to hear but also allow me to hear the things I do need to hear.
A bit overpriced for what they are but if you keep them clean, they last longer than they recommend.

So I'm looking to pick up some ear plugs since I actually feel like I'm going deaf after long rides, does anyone have some they pair with a SENA? I do like communicating with other people I'm riding with, so I'd like to be able to hear my in helmet speakers.

I can hear my Sena speakers without a problem when I have my ear plugs in and moving. I posted a link to those somewhere earlier in this thread. :)

I usually just use ear phones and listen to music

I also use the surefire ear plugs an they work perfect.. Way better then the little foam ones that I could rarely get to seal the way I wanted them to.. I think I payed $12 for the surefire plugs.. Well worth it
