Actually, a month ago my roommate and I were hanging out, talking, and something fell out of his ear. He didn't notice until I told him and he leans down and picks up a pea-sized ball off the floor and says casually "oh, it's my earwax." As you guessed, I told him he's disgusting for letting it build up that bad. Then he ate it!!! okay, that part isn't true

No, I've never worn them. It never seemed all that loud to me, even at highway speeds.
A five minute ride is not going to affect your hearing adversely....it's the prolonged exposure which does it.Maritan said:I wear it ALL the time. Even if the ride is going to be about 5 minutes long. I love my hearing too much to not use them.
Most likely can....S0! said:BTW... I hear you can do some long term damage to your ears without them.
I can hear better with them on then I can in the car and the radio is on, or the window is down. I think having the earplugs in and not all the wind and engine sound makes me more alert to everything around me.nc_sv650 said:Yes. You still can hear traffic noise, certainly better than you would in a car with the windows up.
