    I find that I get a lot of noise from air turbulence over my ears. During the winter, when I rode with a mask that covered my ears, that noise was vastly reduced. What do you use to reduce noise from air turbulence?

    Earplugs, when riding alone.

    Check out wind-blox. I haven't tried them myself but will probably order a pair.

    Cat-ears get mixed reviews.

    Try etymotic ER-20's also. They're useful in a lot of other situations besides cycling.

    Actually, the industry reviews on Cat-Ears are not mixed at all...

    Other than references to Elvis or Wiggo (not bad comparisons IMO) it's unanimous - they work.

    There are many other reviews of Cat-Ears out there... There are no industry reviews for Wind-Blox, none, zero.

    Which would you use?
