Ummm can I suggest that you wet the tip of your little finger and use that to wet your ear rather than wet the plug directly as they deteriorate quicker that way (and the taste is gross).

(Notice to mods: This post was re-written several times to avoid any unnecessary innuendo relating to greasing the hole, moistening things and general wet & hole puns)

Another question for those of you using Surefires. Do you ride with the insert plug in or out?

Out so I can still hear what's going on.

That's what I normally do too. Just curious. With them in things get real quiet.

The only aural challenge I have yet to overcome is my winter setup. In my winter helmet I installed the Sena in-helmet speakers. I tried my buds (Westone), but it is just too much of a Charles Q. Foxtrot getting them on and then putting my balaclava over them and then my helmet, etc. It's just too much gear for me to deal with. With the Surefires in (center plug out) and the balaclava on even with the iPhone volume and Sena volume at max I can barely hear my music. I can't hear Siri prompts at all on the highway so I have learned to time it so I can get her to play what I want. I haven't tried a phone call yet, but I bet a bit of shouting will be involved by the other party.

Surefire showed up, I love them. I can still feel some pressure from helmet, but the are pretty low profile so I think that is as good as it gets.

By the way, I have Scala G4 and can hear even with solid plugs.

I wonder if the balaclava coupled with the plugs is just too much for the volume to get through? I'll try on the ride home today with no balaclava and the Surefires and see how it goes.

+1 on these.

Been using them for years. I also tend to multi-use them even though they're cheap.
I buy them by the box gross (they're individeually packaged in pairs) and usually keep 4-5 pair on me for backup or for friends.
