I ordered a new helmet today, got the Nolan N104. Kinda pricey but they're a reputable manufacturer and it has features that I'm sure I'll like. I always wear a helmet so I want something that will be comfortable. Anyway, while doing my homework, I read a review that said (paraphrasing) "you should always wear earplugs when wearing a helmet or you could suffer permanent hearing damage". Do what!? Really? I can see how a noisy helmet at sustained high speed might do that, but really? Even with a helmet on I'd rather have the benefit of what hearing I had left (due to the helmet being on) than render myself functionally deaf w/ earplugs. Thoughts, feedback?
