    If anyone has been looking at getting a set of the Ultimate Ear fitted ear buds, I found a random You Tube site that reviewed the pair I wanted and it included a discount code for 20% off. The Ultimate site is:

    https://ultimateear.com/

    The code is ridercam20

    I’ve used Custom Fit Guards for a couple of years after I was able to visit a lot of suppliers at the NEC bike show. CFG were the only people who would make me a set in softer silicone as I have very sensitive ears and their service was second to none.

    They often send out vouchers if you sign up to news on their web site, so I suspect they will do a deal?

    I did have a set made by Ultimate Ear, but they were so uncomfortable from new that they lasted a couple of weeks before I gave up, although this was my personal choice. UE weren’t very interested in doing anything about it and this was part of my decision.

    I've had multiple versions of custom molded ear buds over the years. My experience is that...

    If it's all silicone, i.e., no hard outside cover, at some point the wire catches on something and pulls everything right out of the silicone and that you have to send it in to get that fixed.

    If it's all hard plastic, the wire never pulls out, but the plastic's lack of give starts to hurt my ears. After a couple days of touring, it hurts too much to continue use. Especially if your helmet puts any pressure anywhere near your ears.

    If it's silicone on the inside with a hard shell on the outside, this type seems to be the sweet spot; the hard shell prevents pull out damage and the silicone prevents ear pain.

    At the moment, I'm using Rider Buds (https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/riderbuds-ultimate-earphones-for-motorcyclists#/) as an experiment. I can wear the Rider Buds longer than hard custom fitted, but not as long as soft custom, so I'm looking forward to getting fitted for custom again for the hard outside/soft inside version.

    I've also used Plugfones (https://www.plugfones.com/?gclid=CjwKCAjwg4-EBhBwEiwAzYAlsjkvsKahGNcIxnD3zVgRt7-8ODgw4s1xYf2ZNfIXH2LQnkpkk-HQdBoCG7gQAvD_BwE). They're an inexpensive option if your ears will tolerate them. Mine don't tolerate them for multi-day rides.
