Question New to Cycling, Looking for ear protection.


Feb 20, 2020
Hell all, I have a nice road bike, going back and forth to work with it, However, I have very bad Tinnitus in both my ears, and the wind rushing past them during my bike ride Really aggravates it and it's almost debilitating. I bought a headband, but the material is not think enough and doesn't block all the wind.
Just for information, it's not that the wind is going IN my ear, or else I would just wear earplugs or something, but the wind rushing past my ears vibrates them and aggrivates it.
Thank you for any help!

Never tried them, but maybe adding some cat-ears to your helmet straps would help?

I have something similar to this headband. It covers the ears. The wind while riding hurts my ears so I wear the headband regardless of how warm it is to protect my ears.
I currently use a 3 tiered Christmas tree looking ear piece on my noise canceling headphones. Pretty effective. I am trying to establish a better routine for cleaning. I have found that during really hot days when my head,helmet and hair get sweaty that I have to adjust( push in) the headphones.
Here is one guys recipe for noise canceling foam inserts. You may want to go from cheap to expensive because 99% of products don't anticipate that you are heavily exercising and that that activity has your ears exposed to wind and other elements @40mph on occasion..if you are lucky.!
