New type of earplugs

At the Top of the Rockies Rally, I had Arizona Al (Al Shibli) make me a set of earplugs using the audio tube style plugs. These type have been used by law enforcement for years, but I've only seen them for use by motorcyclists only recently.

Instead of the transducers being installed by the lab in the earplugs, these new style have audio tubes that connect from the transducers to the earplug. This gives you a much richer sound than traditional earplug speakers.

Very cool. Worth the $185 investment.

Al is a dealer for Ear, Inc. and there should be a Ear, Inc representative at CCR this year.

Thanks Jeff one of the items we plan on purchasing at ccr, I am looking forward to removing the speakers from my helmet. They have been a real pita and the passenger cabel has broken numerous times enough to pay for the new earplugs.

Cool More Info

Jeff,

How about more details - manufacturer, where are the transducers, were these made on the spot, can these be retrofitted into most ear plugs, any pictures?

How can I contact this individual before CCR?

Inquiring minds!!
