Test Results: After a ten-week test phase, 95% of our testers have reported that the noise reduction was very effective. Irritations caused by prolonged wearing were not noticed. The disturbing noise of wind from the environment was successfully suppressed, but at the same time warning sounds could be heard, e.g. while driving the motorcycle or the nightly crying of a baby. The motorcycle earplugs were particularly effective in the reduction of noise caused by Wind. We tested the products on following structure:

  • with Motorcyclists
  • with Racing drivers
  • with an Audience at a motorsport event
  • with Convertible drivers

During this time, our twenty test subjects have experienced a reduction of tinnitus disorders by up to 90%. A significant reduction of loud sounds on a motorsport event was noticed immediately after the earplugs have been inserted. Ten out of twenty test persons have used the earplugs only for motorcycling. The remaining subjects have also used the earplugs on daily basis on motorways, during daily tasks (e.g. mowing the lawn) and while long distance tours (e.g. London to Glasgow).

BOLLSEN offers a new ear measuring technology called AR KI TECH. This technology measures your ears with a help of a photo (taken e.g. by a smartphone) and designs individualised earplugs. A computer program uses the AR (Augmented Reality) technology to calculate the size of the external ear. The KI (artificial intelligence) technology then selects the appropriate size and shapes the earplug. Since our test persons had different ear sizes, we tested this option and were enthusiastic about it. The cost of this additional service is £12, which is affordable compared to the other adjustment methods (prices from £120).

The overall test result is very positive. The BOLLSEN product stands out from other products mainly due to its effects. After only seven days, our test persons have noticed a significant improvement in the quality of life. There was no heat sensation and, even after two weeks of use, no irritation in the ears. Our conclusion: These earplugs offer optimal protection against loud noises during sleep without any undesired side effects. We also recommend the additional ear measurement service based on the AR KI Tech technology (click here).

Instruction for Use: With your index fingers insert the earplugs carefully in the ears and rotate them slowly into the ear canal. Our test persons were very satisfied with the use of the earplugs and are positively surprised by their almost invisible and optimally fitting shape.

Protection of the Environment: Thumbs up on more time for the concept of reusability of the product. Furthermore, we are pleased to have finally tested a product from the EU, since shorter distances also mean less CO2 emissions in the air.

Life Span: The manufacturer advertises that the product can be used 100 times, also for the sake of the environment. One pack of earplugs lasted with our users for about 5 – 6 months. The test persons wore the earplugs on a daily basis.

How Many dB Do the Earplugs Dampen? According to the manufacturer, the earplugs have a SNR of 24 dB and provide a constant sound reduction at high (H), medium (M) and low (L) frequencies: H=24 dB, M=21 dB, L=19 dB. The attenuation value was tested according to ISO standard 4869-2 by an independent German testing institute.

The Service Guarantee Promise: BOLLSEN Hearing Protection advertises its products with a money-back guarantee, as the company obviously believes very firmly in its products. Of course, we have also tested this option and returned a pair of used earplugs after 35 days. We have been refunded our full payment amount two days after the receipt of the goods. Once again, we are pointing our thumbs up. Customised earplugs for sleeping are excluded from this offer.
