Having a severe problem with my hearing, can't be exposered to any noise, but would like to cycle around. My problem is wind noise. Been using foam earplugs, but that's not enough. I would like to decrease wind noise as much as possible. Don't bother me not hearing traffic, cause I have a mirror on my bike. Bicyling with a road bike which doesn't go faster than 20kmh (12mph) is an option, but would like to ride faster on my road bike (driving around 30-35kmh (18-22mph)). That's to much noise for my ears. The problem is noise is continuous.
Let's see facts:
- Foam earplugs decrease noise for about 30db. Some experts say lab tests with 30db decrease in "real life" mean only 10-15db. Is there any better product for me?
- Together with WindRush which decrease for 20-25db.

Just ordered 2 pairs for my wife and myself. We were out riding today and the wind was really annoying so I experimented with holding a finger up along side my ear and it cut down the noise significantly. So while riding I mentioned I had heard about Cat-Ears and thought I would give them a try.Plus they have a sale on them this week!
