Our Two Cents
ER•20XS earplugs feature a low-profile, stem-less design that sits snugly in the outer ear without protruding. This makes it especially comfortable to wear under hats, helmets and other headgear. ER•20XS earplugs come with a small, flexible pull tab that allows for easy removal, an easy-to-install neck cord and a carrying case.ER•20XS use a tuned resonator and acoustic resistor to replicate the natural response of the ear canal. This unique construction, combined with Etymotic’s proprietary sound path, reduces sound levels evenly across the frequency range without changing the sound quality.
When I first got these earplugs in I tested them out and was surprised by how well they performed. Etymotic claims that it does not muffle the sound like foam earplugs do. It is more like turning down the volume on a stereo. I found that to be exactly what they do. The way these earplugs are designed they reduce the volume of the sound without muffling or distorting it. Etymotic originally made earplugs for musicians who play in front of loud speakers and have now branched out into other industries. The ER-20XS is perfect for motorcycle riders because they have a very low profile and will not come out past the ear in most people. You can see a close up of this if you click the image of the earplugs above. These earplugs are a little higher priced but I think they are worth every cent. -Aaron 01/22/2015
