ear buds / ear plugs

are any of the ear buds rated as hearing protection?
i have to spend a lot of time around equipment that require hearing protection. i would like to spend time listening to my favorite tunes while still protection my hearing.

My Westone CR1 custom ear monitors provide a 25 dB reduction for external noise.

That they provide great stereo sound is also a wonderful feature.

NoNoise earplugs with Tork XPro helmet speakers, paired with a Sena SMH10R linked by Bluetooth to my cellphone. Very happy with my setup.

edit: I tried earbuds before but the off-the-shelf models had a problem seating after the helmet was on and custom ones limited you to the choice of earbuds used.

I have some noise canceling ear buds and they work really well. They cancel out recurring noise, like the noise in an airplane. They don't work with random loud noise. That lets you hear speech, while blocking background noise.

Shure makes some good options

I've had good luck with the Shure products. I had the EC2's in the past and just replaced them with the SE215's. The audio quality is very good and they are not stupid expensive ( about $130 bucks) The whole key to using them with a helmet is getting the right sized buds that will set all the way in your ear and being able to pull your helmet on without dislodging them. It's tricky but when it works I would say that 90% of wind noise is eliminated and the music does the rest..

I use these:

http://www.amazon.com/Etymotic-Resea...=etymotic+mc-5

They come with replaceable foam ear tips that block ~33 dB of noise, which is pretty good. They provide decent sound for a not astronomical price. And with the foam ear tips, I've found they stay in my ears well when putting on/taking off my helmet.
