Okay, I just tried the Bose QC20 which has active noise cancellation. All I can say is, "Wow!" Soooo much better than earplugs. Also way better than about four other earbuds I've tried along with the earbuds surrounded by the custom molded silicone stuff which I suggested above. They're astonishingly good at killing the wind noise. At $250, they're expensive. I wasn't sure how well they'd work so I was hesitant to order them. However, since the price at Best Buy is the same as Amazon and everywhere else, I ended up getting them there with the idea that I could easily return them if they didn't work out. Yeah, I'm keeping them.
