    Split Cost of box of Earplugs

    I was thinking of buying a box of either

    E-A-Rsoft™ Yellow Neons™ "Regular Size" Uncorded in Poly Bag 312-1250
    NRR 33dB-Highest NRR available / THE WORLD'S SOFTEST EARPLUGS
    http://www.e-a-r.com/roll_detail.cfm...um=312-1250001

    OR
    Max 33

    for about $30.00 from
    Fastenal

    They can get them in one day or today. I don’t need 200 though, maybe 100 I could use. Let me know if you wish to split the cost and one of us can pick them up. I live near Port Moody.

    That's a great idea. You could offer $5 ot $10 shares.
    I already steal mine from work though.

    Quick question... Can you still hear traffic, other cars, etc. when wearing these? I don't have a pair handy or i'd just go try it... Maybe i'll look around a bit and see if we have any here at work, and try them on the way home. If they work well, i'll split a box with you.

    yes, you can still hear everything important. i wear earplugs twice a day for my commute and find they really cut down on wind noise, which is the loudest thing at highway speeds.

    i also get to my destination more 'relaxed' instead of tired out from all the noise . . . (and yes i know about noise being an ex-heavy duty mechanic)

    The best part is you can wash, and re-use them until you lose one at some gas station or coffee house.

    so, i work next to Qualichem industrial products on winston. He has the #310-1250 'earsoft' plugs. the only difference is the packaging, as far as i can tell. he says he'll give em to me for $20. let me know if you want me to get them tomorrow and i'll take half.

    peace

    According to the <a href="http://www.e-a-r.com/roll_detail.cfm?prod_family=EARsoft%20Pillowpak&in d_prod_num=310-1250001">EAR website</a>, the 310-1250 is the same earplug (the "yellow neons", 33dB reduction) in a "pillow pack". That's the paper/cardboard tube with folded ends. I'm not sure if they age at all, but if they do, the poly bags would keep them "fresh" longer.

    I found some at work today (not the EAR ones, but similar) and tried them on the way home. I think it's worth splitting an order and doing some more testing... If you guys want to go three ways on either box, i'm in.

    If you don't know which kind you want, you're setting yourself up for an irritating
    lifetime supply of earplugs.

    I highly recommend buying something like the Aerostich earplug sampler
    pack and finding out which types fit your ears best.

    I'm partial to the Moldex Sparkplugs myself. I do have a box of
    DePlug 77200's http://www.degilsafety.com/american/...ugs.htm#deplug

    They fit me not bad, but get a bit irritating after 10 or 12 hours. You're welcome
    to come get a couple fistfulls and see if they work well for you.

    At $0.15 a pair, why would you bother?

    I got these silicon plugs today just to try them out. Don't waste your money on them like I did. They are nasty.

    cudo's to you folks for wearing them.
    Wind noise at speed will damage you're hearing and you will notice it later in life. They are so cheap, it's worth it to throw a handfull into a riding jacket so you always have some.

    i hate earplugs for riding, but the one kind i have been able to tolerate using is
    3M 1100's they are smallish and orange. deffinatly only want to use them once though. they lose their strength after a use or 2 and become a pain to put in. package says NRR 29dB
    no

    I use the 3M ones. I'm pretty sure they're the same ones Jayson just mentioned. They come in the little white poly bag.
    I have been using ear plugs religiously for two years and at this point, can barely stand riding 10 minutes on the highway without a set in my ears.
    Best thing I've included in my riding gear without a doubt.

    Because I know the value of a dollar. $.15 per pair, one pair a day in a year you'll spend around $50. Do that with enough things that "only cost $.15" and you're quite a bit lighter in the pocket book at a years end. $6000 in a 8% compound interest account left untouched for 40 years, equals $1,000,000.

    If you happen to be independantly wealthy, perhaps you'll consider environmental reasons.

    I'm not really particular about if you do or don't, I'm just sharing information.
