Motorcycle Custom Ear Plug
Our SoundEars are custom moulded earphones combining 31dB (SNR) of hearing protection with high-quality audio via single balanced armature drivers. This product is the perfect solution for use with motorcycle intercom systems or for anyone who wants to plug directly into a phone, satnav or MP3 player whilst riding. Our Soundear is supplied with a 3.5mm jack which means it will plug directly into a lot of intercom systems such as the Cardo Packtalk Bold or Sena 50S. Simply replace the padded speakers provided for crystal clear audio even at higher speeds. This product can also be supplied with a USB-C connector upon request rather than a 3.5mm jack.
The Soundear possesses an ultra-slim profile, meaning it is perfect for use underneath motorcycle helmets. Furthermore, it is manufactured using the softest medical grade silicone available on the market, making it the most comfortable solution for anyone looking to combine audio with hearing protection whilst on their bike.
A must-have for all Motorcyclists!
I did 350 miles up through the Brecon Beacons and I have to say that they were perfect. My sincere thanks to you for sorting and please pass my thanks to Alfie for understanding the problem and making what I can say are a perfect fit.

Before Christmas I had a pair of Soundears taken in for repair and impressions taken for a new set of Squidgies. I received excellent service from the point of initial contact through to the speedy delivery of my new products (despite a backlog in orders following Christmas). I am extremely happy with my new ear protection and highly recommend Ultimate‚both services and products. Will definitely be coming back in the future.

The monitors are very comfortable and the sound protection in ideal, it was also so nice to have some music whilst sitting on the the M3, A303. I also play the drums and during some recording sessions the monitors have come into their own, it’s much easier to play along to the tracks now I can hear them in better quality. So, thanks to all involved, looking forward to the dawn run down to the ferry now.

So spent Wednesday, Thursday and Friday commuting between Lee and Battersea Power Station on my motorbike wearing the single drive bike headphone. they sounded amazing, the sonic quality was fantastic even for a single driver, i must congratulate you and the Ultimate team for making a really great quality product that is made in the UK. The bass response was full, the mids were clear and the tops were sparkling and all round great sound. Not only did they sound great but were very comfortable.
The moulded monitors are superb and I have found them to be very effective and comfortable for extended periods. As it is the plugs allow me to hear my phone and use it at motorway speeds which were the aim in the first place.
You made my new Interphone Tour with earplug conversion. I just rode 2918 miles in 15 days round Europe and the tour held charge for the whole trip! Your earplugs take so little power! I could hear all the instructions and the Tour never went flat! THANK YOU

I dropped two Scala Rider headsets in to be modified to accept my ultimate ear SoundEars. I needed these on a tight turnaround for a trip with my son. ultimate assured me that they would try and meet the deadline even with the extended bank holiday. Not only did they meet my expectation but they exceeded it by delivering them early which made my life much simpler. Thank you, excellent customer service.
Ive received my new earplugs with headphones. I must say i did not realise how my original ear plugs from Ultimate had slackened over ten years or so. I had a ride this afternoon and I’m amazed at the lack of wind noise once again and the clarity of the head phones for my Ipod and satnav. I was a little naughty and wound the bike up on a nice clear road to around 90mph and the sound was clear as a bell. Thank you for a great service and product.

I too had a set of SoundEars and they were superb. I ordered them last time ultimate came to do us a pitch which must have been over three years ago. Very comfortable and cut out a load of background noise. Bit of a pain one evening though when on the train listening to my ipod and I missed the announcement saying they were modifying the stops and the train was going fast from Gatwick to Brighton when I wanted to get off at Three Bridges! I also have a set of their Squidgies ear plugs which I use all the time and they are good too.

This is probably the best idea I had in a long long time buying the Soundear plugs. Me and my wife ride together all the time on separate bikes and every time we got onto any fast road she would stop hearing me clearly and we couldn’t talk to each other. After we got these the volume is way down and we can still hear each other clearly under any circumstances. Not to mention, the battery in the bluetooth unit on the helmet last much longer. I’m very happy with this purchase and have removed the speakers from my helmet.

I have just received back my G4 headsets after conversion to take the‚ SoundEar earplugs. I have done a ‘road test’ with my sat/nav I can only describe the results as absolutely brilliant. Please pass on to all concerned my appreciation of a job well done.
I honestly love them, I have been using them for everything recently, particularly for drumming along to music with my ipod. None of my band currently use ear protection so I’m going to try and convince them to order some plugs from you.
David P –
I’ve just received the cable that I was chasing. Thanks for getting it to me so promptly following my call. I have not had chance to test the system in conjunction with the Autocom but as a stand alone aid to listening to music it is magic!
Jon Slade –
I just wanted to say thank you. The new SoundEar monitors are fantastic. Comparing my previous (expensive) earphones to the SoundEar monitors is like comparing sackcloth to silk. And excellent customer service too. All-in-all I’m a massive fan!

I would like to express my thanks to all at ultimate ear protection for providing firstly great customer service and secondly a great product. I have just returned to you an old set of in ear monitors that have had 7 years of motorcycle touring and have stood up to this task pretty well considering it is a pretty challenging environment for any electronic product. The monitors eventually called it a day with one ear dying on me so I sent them back for either repair or replacement, unfortunately the product was uneconomic to repair, so I was offered a set of replacements for a discounted price. I expressed to the person on the phone that I really needed these back for a trip that I had planned leaving on the 22nd April which didn’t give you much time to make the new ones. However true to your word I received the new product today well in time for my departure and they are so much better than the original pair. Thanks again for taking the trouble to move stuff about and express manufacture these for me and I hope that I get another 7 years from this pair.

Ear phones really good! A lot better than my other types. I think maybe because it’s better compounds I.e softer. It felt comfortable, clear sounds, plugged out outside sounds and I’m basically really impressed. Normally I’m very picky about things and so far everything is ok!
Craig W –
I ordered the soundear product and it arrived today. I have to say i am so pleased with it. The fit is perfect and the sound is amazing. I am sure i can hear more of the music than i have been able to.

Moulds done in quick time, collected from the NEC and looked after by the staff there who helped me fit them correctly and WOW they are dam good. Even on very low on my phone can’t hear anything but Elton John.
John Mosedale –
I just wanted to say a big thank you for my soundear plugs – at last I can listen to music peacefully on my bike without having to raise the volume. And with noisy kids next door, I can work in the garden with them and listen to the radio or music without the distraction. The Sleep Plugs too are brill – at last I can get a good night’s sleep – I only need one at a time. They are comfortable under a helmet. Thanks guys – I am really happy!
Alan Dowds –
Had them for years, great things! Music and radio while you ride, I don’t leave home without them!
Matt Corns –
I have really felt the benefit of them fitting properly, the things you can hear, and not hear on the bike are pretty amazing. So please can you pass on this email as a letter of recommendation to your level of customer service, i would recommend, and have, your services to my other biking friends
Michael Denning –
Just collected my monitors from repair. Excellent service and super fast. Can’t praise them enough as needed them for holiday to France on Monday morning. Super friendly ladies on the reception as well. THANK YOU LOADS
Received my earphones yesterday will be testing them on the bike in the next few days but they look/sound great.
E Harries –
Fantastic!!! I am so pleased I decided to have your excellent ear canal monitors (moulds taken at the BMF show). I have tried all sorts of earphones and experimented with sound amplifiers, autovoxing intercoms and various helmet speaker combos, with and without ear plugs. All resulted in discomfort, pain, huge increases in sound levels and poor audio at virtually all speeds – simply put – nothing really worked. But the quality and sound reproduction at quite low volume settings was a revelation using your product. I must thank you for getting my order out to me before I was due to go on a long 500 mile trip a few days ago – an excellent test and the ear protectors were superb at both noise reduction and audio quality. I’m sorry to go on a bit, but I just had to pass on my thanks at your excellent service and to put on record my delight at having finally found the perfect solution to long motorcycle rides – I shall be recommending you to all my friends and acquaintances. Thanks again.

My plugs from ultimate are awesome, I race with them, ride the motorbike with them, I’ve even used them with my I-pod whilst flying. The fit is great AND they last longer than any other make I’ve used
Picked my Sound Ears up this morning from the Royal Mail office… thanks for processing my order so fast. I am very happy with them, it is great to be back using these again. My commute to work was great and I can now bin my foam plugs. Nice case by the way, thank you.

I PURCHASED MY MONITORS 4 YEARS AGO, AND RECENTLY PURCHASED A SECOND PAIR. ON EACH OCCASION I HAVE DEALT WITH YOUR RECEPTION AND RECEIVED EXCELLENT SERVICE – KNOWLEDGEABLE, EFFICIENT AND CHEERFUL. SERVICE HAS ALWAYS BEEN QUICK. I AM A FAN OF YOUR PRODUCTS AND HAVE CONVINCED MY MOTORCYCLING FRIENDS TO INVEST IN YOUR EARPLUGS AND MONITORS VIA THE BMF SHOWS.

First impression are the sound is impressive – and I’ve heard things I’ve not before! I have a Paul Weller album that is recorded in the bbc studios, I’ve heard so much bits in the background which I never on my old inears.
Matt Jeary –
I have now had my Soundears for 10 years in October 2020 and they are still amazing and testament of their longevity. I have only ever had the wire replaced once in august 2016 for a minimal amount of money. They still sound amazing , all the frequency range is still there and I will be buying more in the future if I can still find the moulds after 10 years!
I cant recommend this company enough and their products last a hell of a lot longer than any other headphones I have had in the past. What are you guys waiting for? Go and get some fitted!
Mark Lehmann –
I initially bought some bose soundear covers after getting my ears moulded at the Scottish bike show but I wanted something more to be able to wear something most of the day, be able to take calls and not have to constantly charge my headphones.
After a short period of time, I looked over the many options available on the website and then went ahead and purchased my first pair. Well, what can I say about these headphones apart from they are no doubt the best purchase of headphones I have ever made and use for multiple activities, I wear these when out on my Road and Mountain bikes and also at work. They definitely cut out a lot of the road noise and traffic noise so I was very impressed. Having loved them so much there had been occasions where I had forgotten to charge them and ran out of battery for music or calls so I decided that I would get an additional pair so that I would always have a pair to use as you can literally keep them on all day if you want to they are very comfortable.
If you are in any doubts about the sound quality don’t be they are amazing but if you are looking to get separate tip colour I would recommend calling them as it was not an option at the time when I bought them on the site to do that.
The customer support is also brilliant, any issues I have had with my initial pair were rectified very quickly and without any problems and very happy with the service.

I am writing to say how good my wife and I found the Motorcycle Monitors with speakers. We used them with an Autocom system on our honeymoon last year. We travelled 4000 miles around Europe and found them perfect. They were clear, comfortable, and unlike other fitted plugs I’ve had before, they didn’t dislodge from my ear. The first time we used the Autocom we used the original speakers and earplugs. They were quite uncomfortable and the volume needed to be set to maximum so we could hear. With the Ultimate’s fitted monitors with integrated speakers we had the volume set way down from maximum and still they were clearer than the original system. Along with our Zumo sat nav, they were the best investment we made for the whole trip.
Thank you, Jason and Karen
