I use a pair of "concert" or hi-fidelity or whatever their called ear plugs... They don't block out as much as the full foam ones, but they keep the sound to comfortable volumes, and I feel like I can hear everything still. I can even carry out a conversation with helmet on and them in without needing everyone to yell at me.

Anyways, i quoted your post, because that's exactly why I went with those kinds. Foams are juuust a little too good at blanking everything out, or too muffled, for my liking.

I wear earplugs on anything other than short local hops running errands. Once I got used to wearing them, it feels weird not to have them in when riding. Kind of like when seat belt laws came about. Did not like it at first but now is a bit discomforting not to wear them. Or riding without a jacket for protection..similar for me.
