I use my sena 20s all the time, but I hated not wearing earplugs but wearing them and trying to hear anything from my 20s was very hard. I searched and found a company called plugfones , they were a kickstarter company first.

https://www.plugfones.com/

I've been wearing these for months now and the foam tips instead of the silicone are the way to go, the sound you get from them are great, as good as any apple/samsung headphone would be, maybe even a little better since its also an earplug.

Whats great about this company is they sell replacements and not expensive either, like 5 bucks for 10.

Recently though I placed an order for new replacements and instead of the normal earplug foam they are now using this

They call this their "comforttwist" I get the idea but it sucks, its way too thin at the front and doesn't block out the sound like it used to. I emailed the company because they no longer make the normal earplug only this new pointy crap. Surprisingly they emailed me back and were already addressing the issue, they are producing a thicker version of this "comfortwist" and are going to send me a few sets for free as long as I review it and give them feedback. Anyway I recommend anyone looking to protect their ears but still want to hear navigation, radar detector or music, these are the best I've tried out of others.

I can use my sena with earplugs. I use Etymotic IEMs for airplane flights, which uses a triple flange for isolation that is equivalent to earplugs. However, I doubt I'd ever use them on a motorcycle: I like being aware of my surroundings, so I use earplugs and a Sena.

It comes down to what you want to spend, really. When I was in the Air Force, I was given custom fit earplugs that also had a hole for the comms earbuds for my flight helmet. The business also offered models that would accommodate many different brands of earbud manufacturers. Since they kept my mold on file, I bought basic earplugs from them on my own dime for working at home.

Give a google search for molded custom earplugs in your area and tell them you want some plugs that accept "X" brand earbuds and i bet $3.50 that they will make them for you. It might cost $100 and 10 minutes of your time to make the mold, but custom earplugs are the shiznit.

I visited the website https://www.plugfones.com/, but I didn't find the best one that I need because I was looking to get the custom earplugs so that it will fit of my ears and will give me full hearing protection. I was looking for a company that gives me custom earplugs after getting a set of my impression.
Price doesn't matter for me because I need full hearing protection that can protect the sound level and give me the safe riding.
Earplugs is an essential part along with helmet, jacket, boots, gloves. So If we want a safe riding then we must use the earplugs that create for motorcycle riding only. We cannot use other earplugs that haven't designed for motorcycle riding because it won't give us full protection to keep the sound level at a normal level.

I was finding the best motorcycle riding earplugs and at last, I found a couple of company such as
https://www.bigearinc.com/custom-ear-plugs-for-motorcycle-riders and CluisTROM - Custom Moulded Motorcycle Earplugs both are good. You can have a look as well.

Older thread is back. I really like the Jaybird X4 wireless with the Comply foam isolation tips. The sound quality and comfort is great and hardly any wind noise. Its much easier to use the X4's when using a modular helmet (C3 Pro). Nice to be able to leave phone in my jacket pocket however glove off required to press buttons.

Tips: pull helmet sides out while sliding helmet on and take earphones out before taking off standard helmet

I just installed a Cardo Packtalk Bold communicator in a Shoei X-14. With my home depot orange foam plugs the sound quality is not good and not loud enough. With no earplugs the wind noise is too much. Disappointed that sitting on the couch with my helmet on, the JBL speakers sound so good but not so much while riding. With $35 Eargasm (funny name) high fidelity earplugs I can hear music good on medium volume. Sound quality is okay and wind noise is greatly reduced. Anybody else using custom molded plugs with good results?
