EVERY SINGLE time someone post about Big Ear they are a spammer.... Let's see how you play out....Late to this, but I’ve tried many and found that wired custom plugs inevitably catch on something and the wire gets pulled out of the ear piece if it’s all silicone. I think they make as much doing repairs as new sales. Consequently, my next set will be from Big Ear; they make theirs with the wire captured by a hard shell on the outside while retaining comfort via all silicone on the inside.
it's not just long term hearing damage, but i've had balance issues before too. Not with a helmet, but on HD/choppers w/o anything.
