    Would be keen to hear what members use (if anything) - I use foam inserts and they are fairly good depending on how I manage the putting them in  - sometimes when in a hurry it is pretty poor - but am wondering if custom made are worth the expense. Advice and comment welcomed guys.

    Have used disposable, not so disposable with interchangeable filters and am now using custom moulded..... They just feel a lot more comfortable.
    I don't try to explain to people why I ride a Motorcycle. For those who understand no explanation is needed! For those who don't understand, no explanation is possible..

    highest attenuation I could find in disposable ones
    18 quid + vat n 4 quid postage.  really good price here.

    Am trying Max1 Howard Leight - not used these before - after two rides with them in (and getting better at insertion technique due to them being more pliable than others I have used) I am quite happy. Thanks for comments. :028:
