These work well to listen to audiobooks and music with normal volume levels while commuting on motorcycle using a full helmet. They block out the wind noise and I can listen at about the same levels as when I'm just walking with these in. The audio quality is not great not terrible. It's about what you would expect from headphones at this price. I've had them for about 2 months of commuting 3-5 days a week. They fit well and I don't have any trouble with them coming out while putting on a snug properly fitted full helmet. They haven't broken yet.
Loves these very comfortable and discrete. Working in a factory around loud presses being able to listen to music and still have approved headlines makes the day go much faster
If you need tunes where you shouldn’t have them (you know who you are) and want the exact look of “ear plugs” with the bonus of having them as well as your tunes....then this is your product. There is plenty of cord length to run down the back of your shirt to conceal that extra length. I only dinged this product by the loss of one star due to having experienced high end Bluetooth earbuds. But honestly for what you are getting it is a nice sound quality. I recommend the Bluetooth adapter which can be plugged into them to work with iPhone whom doesn’t have a headphone jack.
Sanity Restored! I have got to say that these have made work a bit more tolerable. I work in a factory with forklifts and very noisy machines. If I keep the volume at a medium level I can still hear the horns and backup beeps. To hear conversation on the floor I just take one out without fear that a co-worker will discover music coming from my "earplugs". If a background soundtrack is what your looking for, these are perfect. Just don't be jamming to the music and forget to be safe. So far I have used them 5 days a week for 8 hours a day and they are still in perfect working order after 4 weeks. I am not overly cautious with them but do try to remove by the plugs, not the wire. Very satisfied and feel these earbuds are worth the money.
These are loud and clear. Look just like the ear plugs at work so i can run the cord down the back of my shirt and nobody knows the difference. The cord is really long though so i had to tuck it in my jeans so nobody can see it. Haha
I got these for wearing under my motorcycle helmet. I love them. Putting the helmet on or taking it off doesn't move the plugs at all. Even though the NRR is rated at 26db, to my ears it seems like my 23db NRR earmuffs. The plugfones cut out a good chunk of wind noise, but I can just still hear my motorcycle's engine and things going on around me. I was pleasantly surprised. The only thing is that I wish I had spent the money and got the bluetooth ones instead.
Plugfones® Certified Noise Reduction Ratings
The most important thing to remember about Plugfones is that they’re earplugs first and earbuds second. As such, the entire Plugfones line is tested and compliant with ANSI S3.19-1974 noise reduction standards and meets NIOSH criteria. When used as directed, our products are certified for Noise Reduction Ratings (NRR) of 29 or 27 dB, depending on the plugs used. For environments with high levels of noise, it may be necessary to use over ear protection such as earmuffs in conjunction with Plugfones products.
