Same here. It's not the sound of the exhaust that bothers me when the top is down it's the wind noise. When the top is up then I get the heavy resonance and that really bothers me. Anyway I have a box of the small soft roll up orange ones about 1000/ box that I keep in the garage. I wore them all the time when I work in an industrial power plant with a lot of high pitch turbine whine. They work great.

Well, as long as the threads been hijacked....I went to this style https://www.radians.com/radsite/index.php/industrial/industrial-safety-products/item/radians-custom-molded-earplugs will vintage racing, but I think Randy and Peter might be right and the foam style work a little better.

Doug,

That's what I'm talking about, you can cover more of your ear for better insulation.

In my case I'm able to pack the wax in there and get a good tight fit.

You have to keep packing them along the way but
the drop in decibels makes the drive more enjoyable and actually puts me in another frame of mind,
probably because I'm not used to walking around with wax earplugs everyday.
It is a cool sensation.

I use them every time I go out and enjoy the ride that much more.

Peter
