Gear Gremlin Rocket Ear Plugs
Customer Product Reviews
Easy to use
Easy to install, cheap and very effective in reducing wind noise but I found them uncomfortable after about 30 mins riding. I find most plugs uncomfortable though and therefore tend to go without or just use simple foam ones. Worth a try though as they really are easy to put in compared with others.
Not sure why I didn't get these sooner
I have no idea why I've been riding without ear plugs. They make riding so much more comfortable without the incessant exhaust and wind noise. These GG fit perfectly, are comfortable, and when not on the bike are useful to block out the snoring of loved ones and the chirping of birds early in the morning!
I have always used the disposable foam earplugs and been very happy with them. I thought I'd try these. At firstinspection they looked promising - well made and finished. However... I found them uncomfortable and about 30% as effective as my old cheapie disposable foam plugs. I have put these in the bin.
I'd estimate these £2.50 a pair Rocket plugs dull the wind noise AND lower the volume from a 7 out of 10 to just a 5 compared to my long time use Moldex disposables but they're less than 2p a pair when bought in pairs of 200. I often lose plugs too so it's a problem unless I can buy these Rockets in bulk.
Not sure if it is the size of my ear canals but I really don't feel that these cut out any noise at all. Have always used foam ones which have been fairly effective. Thought I would try these because of reviews but will go back to foam. Have given 3 stars rather than less cos could be my ear shape rather than the item...
I have tried similar ear plugs to reduce wind noise in the past, but found them ineffective, so used foam ear plugs which seemed to be better. However, having read the MCN review on earplugs I thought I would try the Gear Gremlin Rocket ear plugs. I have now used them several times and found them to be very good and it does reduce the wind noise significantly. They are not that uncomfortable to wear but I have found that one does leave my ear hurting after a long journey but think this is more to do with a small ear canal. Overall, I am completely satisfied with the purchase and also excellent value.
