I've been been use foam ear plugs for 15 years, I can see how they can be uncomfortable with narrow ear canals, hard to insert too. I just got a new batch of 50 from CVS, -32db rating, they're quieter than the last ones I had.
Many years ago I had a pair of those custom made for me at a motorcycle show. The ones that don't go into the canal, about $70. They made the ear mold at the show, created the plugs at their shop, and sent them to me. They were crap, I couldn't hear anyone speaking, but wind noise came through loud and clear. I've also tried swimmers plugs, they're waxy and don't go into the canal, didn't work for me.
