Product Review: Ultimate Ear Squidgy custom earplugs

Ultimate Ear Squidgy custom earplugs, £59 + P&P

Time tested: Six months

What’s good? I had these moulded at the MCN Scottish Show; a quick and painless 10-minute procedure where they squirt expanding foam into your ears and leave it to harden. These are used to make the earplugs from, and they were posted out two weeks later. They’re comfortable to wear for long periods; as well as on the bike, I’ve used them to sleep in circuit campsites and on long-haul flights. They reduce noise just the right amount – cutting out wind noise while still leaving you able to hear the engine of the bike. They also surprised me by still allowing me to hear someone speaking to me off the bike. You also get the moulds with them so you can order replacements without having to get a new one taken.

What’s not? They’re more than a little difficult to get out of your ear – the custom mould and slick finish of the silicon rubber means it can be tricky to get purchase on them to pull them out. You can order them with a retainer cord, which would make them easier to pull out.
