It can be difficult getting ear plugs to fit under a motorcycle helmet. If they protrude from your ears they will be pulled out when you put your helmet on. ZenPlugs don't protrude so they stay in, blocking traffic and wind noise and stopping you damaging your hearing. They work well under a motorcycle helmet. The alternative is noise-induced hearing loss which is deafness associated with tinnitus.
This used to be a common occupational hazard for those working in factories, mills and anywhere that heavy machinery is being used. Thankfully it has become much less common since the advent of health and safety. Drivers of open top cars are also at high risk due to the wind noise. The rapid vibrations of the air flowing over the ear canals creates high energy sound waves. These can damage the delicate sensory hair cells in the inner ear. It is these cells which sense vibrations and change them into signals the brain can understand.
Many of us will have experienced this at some time or another. This may have been after going to a loud concert or night club, but luckily it is reversible at the outset. It may become permanent with repeated or sustained insult. ZenPlugs are comfortable, good at blocking sound, brightly coloured and are also antibacterial. This prevents you getting ear infections if you wear your ear plugs often or for prolonged periods of time. Find out more on our homepage at www.zenplugs.com.
