Big Ear Testimonials

Hi Mark,
I just wanted to say that I enjoyed meeting you in Laughlin and to say that I love my custom fit ear plugs.  These ear plugs fit comfortably in place and greatly
reduce the highway roar of my motorcycle and the wind, yet, I can hear my radio and others talking to me.  This is one biker who wants to keep his hearing well into old age.

At the MC show in DC, back in Jan or Feb, you suggested that I might send an email that you could use as a testimonial from a very pleased customer. Hope this does some good. Thank you for making an excellent product. Yours weren't the first ear plugs that I've tried in my years of riding, but they are, far and away, the best. I started out with the foam things, and used them for a long time, although I'd often have to take them out halfway through a 400-mile day (because of the pain) until my ears adjusted to them. Then I tried one of the other brands of molded plugs, and they worked quite well. I wore them for a year or more-until they broke apart. I saw your kiosk at one of the BMW rallies a few years back; I was impressed by your description of your product, and decided to give Big Ears a try. They work wonderfully. There was no break-in period and never any difficulty in seating or removing the plugs. And there is no sign of wear or tear, after thousands of miles of use. I now own two pairs or the basic plugs (because I tend to lose things) and one pair with the speakers. (Btw, the basic plugs are also great for keeping the ocean out while snorkeling.) Speaking of losing things, thanks also for resupplying me with the yellow carrying cases, every now and then.

Your solid molded ear plugs are JUST GREAT. I do not know how I ever rode without them in the past. Today I tried them with my CB radio and much to my surprise I was able to hear everything my wife said with just a small increase in the volume. Great Product, Good Price and Great Service.

I wear my stereo plugs five or six times per week on average. They are unbelievably nice.

First off let me tell you I love these ear phones. The fit and sound are great. I use these on my motorcycle and they are comfortable, have great sound quality and really isolate the wind noise allowing me to listen to pure sound. Plus they are comfortable under my helmet. Additionally, I found this company’s service and communication top notch. Sarah deserves kudos for her prompt response and accurate information. Not too common in today’s marketplace!

Outstanding! SO, YOU GUYS ROCKED MY BOAT TODAY!!!!! My pal Pink and I showed up at your booth at the BMW rally here in Vermont. I had my fab stereo earplugs with me that were muted due to a filter. I LIVE in these things. The familiar lady at your booth recognized Pink and I from Americade a year before. I told her the problem with my ear bud, she took the original canister that you sent them in, and told me they would be fixed. Didn't even need my address or verification. They arrived today, and they sound amazing as usual. Didn't even charge me for fixing them, and even sent a tool to help me maintain the use of them. You guys give me faith in outstanding customer recognition and service. I wish more businesses in this country upheld the integrety and consideration that you have proven with your service. Thank you. Thank you.

I just wanted to let you know how great the molded Earplugs are that you made for me while at the Motorcycle Expo in New York. As an avid motorcyclist and a competitive pistol shooter, I am constantly in dangerously loud environments, since your ear plugs are so small I can now have them with me all the time. They are so comfortable, I sometimes forget that I have them in and have several times left the firing range with them still in place. I have a chronic ear condition that makes riding my motorcycle with my ears exposed a very painful and distracting event, with the Earplugs, that problem is eliminated!! I can still hear other bikes and cars; however, the effect of the wind on my ear is eliminated. I want to thank you for making such a great product, whenever I put them on, someone wants to know where I got them and I'm always happy to tell them about your company.

Wear adequate hearing protection, such as foam ear plugs or ear muffs, when you must be in a noisy environment or when using loud equipment. Protect your hearing!
