A few years back, one night I noticed something funny going on with the crickets outside. They'd be making noise, then suddenly stop; then they started again. I noticed that it depended upon which ear I had in the pillow determined when I could hear the crickets. Hearing loss in the left ear. That didn't come about until after I started riding. The damage from noise is cumulative and never comes back.
I started using the foam plugs. They worked great. Got the shark and a new helmet (also a Shark) and I couldn't hear the radio, so I tried several. I settled on Alpine MotoSafe and they work great. I use their Race flavor (most attenuation but not as much as the foam). I've been using the same ones for a couple of years now.
