Koss Earplug Speakers

Koss Earplug Speakers

Product Review (submitted on February 12, 2009):
I've used these and they actually sound quite a bit better to me than the expensive earspeakers that I tried, which were made by Etymotic. The foam works better than the plastic flanges at isolating the wind noise. The only problems, which are subjective, are that earspeaker cords are a huge hassle on a motorcycle, and that they eventually work their way out of the ear.

After trying this approach, I decided that the solution which is less of a hassle is to mount some high-quality headphones in the helmet, which will play loudly enough to be heard through earplugs. I took the drivers from a set of Koss PortaPro headphones and fitted them in my helmet, and mounted a jack coupler to the side of the helmet, which avoids the dangling wire syndrome and makes the connection a one-handed operation, even though it makes it necessary to include a plug/plug cable in the wire from the audio source. The silicone ball ear plugs are more comfortable and easier to use than the type that inserts into the canal.
