I have seen the same 102-103 figure for the stock system. With my Corsair Arai, the sound seems well muted. No earplugs here - I want to hear the idiots coming up behind and to the side of me.

Termis slip-ons are no louder than the stock exaust WITH the db inserts. But, without the db killers it is totally different story

On that note:

"the most common service-connected disabilities are hearing impairments"

"The prevalence of severe hearing impairment among nonveterans was 2.5%. Among all veterans, the prevalence was 10.4%"

It can get loud when my visor is cracked open so I wear earbud headphones to knock down the dbs, listen to music or answer the phone.

It is not the noise of the bike that is damaging, it is the wind noise you have to be careful about.

Engine noise is a lower frequency noise and it will take a long time to see a difference there (hearing loss wise), however wind noise has a broad range and its the higher frequency band that will screw your hearing initially.

This is why when you do a hearing test you start losing the higher frequency hearing capabilty first and it gradually moves to the lower frequency range.

People with hearing loss at the higher frequency range cannot hear high pitched frequency such as whistles etc at the same dB level as they could the lower frequency ones. Always wear ear plugs, above 55 mph, the wind noise inside the helmet is in excess of 100 dB and it is pretty damaging to your ears.

My ear plugs give me a 30 dB attenuation so at 100 mph, the wind noise I hear is generally around 75-80db which is not too bad compared to 115dB with no ear plugs(more or less depending on the design of the helmet).

On a closing note, here is a nice hearing test you can go through at home - you would need good quality head phones. Obviously, this cannot replace the actual medical test but it will give you a good idea how much deep in shite you are already and if you need start thinking about ear plugs!

Keep your head phones volume to normal - the level you use to listen to news, etc.

Indeed. Never used to wear plugs riding motocross in my younger days, but on the road now they are great. Plus, wearing a 1st gen Bell Star makes them pretty much imperative. Loudest helmet I've ever worn by far, but it fits me great so I just "plug and play". And the plugs must be working; could still hear up to 16khz on the test...

Please wear earplugs, everyone.

I have severe tinnitus. I first got it at the age of 44. I'll have it for the rest of my life. It came from a combination of bikes without earplugs, and flying light aircraft without plugs.

Good in ear earphones also work well. Look up etymotics, the leaders in dB reduction. Even better but very expensive are the molded ones.

Earplugs are super cheap. I buy them in boxes of 200. And they will help you prevent a very unpleasant disease. I keep a few pairs in the pocket of all of my jackets, and on a trackday it's the first thing I put on when suiting up.

When I started riding about 6 years ago I had my first ride on a M695 with Termis. Came home, my ears were ringing.
Today they still are.
