Product Review – Earmold plugs hearing protection

Someone asked if I knew anything about custom-formed earplugs.

They asked about the plugs made by Earmold, but as I have never tried them, I didn’t have a clue. Seeking someone who uses them, I turned to Savaugn Pratt, who offered a ringing endorsement with help from other Ulysses members!

Savaugn, take it away…

“I appreciate a company that has excellent customer service and provides exactly what it promises.

Earmold Australia is owned by Aaron and Julie Dalle-Molle, not a major corporation, just ordinary people, Ulyssians in fact, like you and me. Earmold began in Australia in 1988, producing earplugs for shooters and professional uses. Aaron and Julie became agents for Earmold in Australia in 1996 and purchased the company in 2011.

When a Ulyssian adapted his workplace earplugs by cutting them flat so that he could wear them under his helmet to reduce wind noise, a new avenue for the business was formed.

Like most of us, I just accepted the noise that came with wearing a helmet as part of the experience, but I was damaging my hearing. Riders and pillions can experience prolonged noise levels of more than 104 decibels when travelling at 100km/h. anything over 81 decibels can damage your hearing! Being a pillion on a bike with a good sized screen, I am often on the receiving end of the wind as it whirls around the screen and the rider.

I purchased my first set of Earmold earplugs about 10 years ago and have since bought another two pairs, including a pair for sleeping. This from a person that absolutely hates anything going into my ears!

The plugs are moulded using a material with the highest rating for hearing protection and can be made in all sorts of colours – helps those of us with old timers – we can tell the left one from the right one! With my earplugs in, I no longer experience the wind noise – still get tossed around though! We can hear each other clearly through the intercom and I get to sing along to my favourite songs.

On those odd occasions I forget to put the plugs in, the excessive noise soon reminds me!

Give your hearing a break, get a set of Earmold plugs fitted. You will not regret it!

Savaugn also elicited comments from other Ulysses members;

“Best thing I ever did, get to sleep through the road noise at night, but can still hear my music and the missus yelling at me from the back of the bike during the day!” Wayne Duff #60786

"Over the years I have used a variety of hearing protection products in my personal and working life. I discovered custom made plugs and at work or play or even for a good night's sleep they are the best and most comfortable hearing protection devices I have used. Aaron at Earmold manufactured and fitted them perfectly whilst I waited, a very professional company who I would recommend without hesitation" Steve Blencowe #63000

“After riding for a number of years I noticed that my hearing was starting to become impaired due to the excessive noise.  I decided to try a set of earplugs to seeif it made any difference.  Aaron fitted me up with my custom earplugs and I have never looked back. I’m also into bike to bike communications and have had several versions of the Sena Headsets. Aaron was able to hook my headset in with my custom ear plugs and the sound is crystal clear.  Not only do I get to speak and listen to my riding buddies but I can also hear my Garmin GPS directions and listen to my favourite riding music as well.  I cannot recommend Earmold Australia highly enough. Thankyou Earmold Australia.”
