Wind Noise

Is there something out there that will block wind noise but still allow me to hear?

They put foam “silencers” over microphones to minimize wind noise… How, about the same thing for my ears?

On windy days all I hear is the wind and it drowns out the sound of approaching vehicles… plus the wind noise is just annoying.

There is one that goes just in front of your ear to cut down a bit on airnoise. Then a full cover one that takes it to anotehr level but I found traps in too much heat for texas 10 months of the year.

take your helmet off. or....

Foam earplugs work great to cutdown windnoise on the motorcycle; help to reduce mental fatigue while saving your hearing. Not to sure the same benefits apply to bicycling; nor will it help you to hear the cars. But it will stop the windnoise.
