Cat-Ears, LLC - Reduce Cycling Wind Noise



Taking a cue from nature,
 we use soft sound permeable materials (microfiber and fur)
 to significantly reduce wind noise... similar to how audio / recording engineers reduce microphone wind noise

Visit our 'How They Work' page and listen to the wind noise demo on 'our Wind Noise' page
The objective is to reduce the effect(s) of the wind  -  without blocking sound waves  -  so they are safe to use

    And Hundreds of Unsolicited Testimonials
The Choice of Serious Cyclists:
* Turbulent (wind) velocity fluctuations, converted to pressure fluctuations, are a primary source of annoying ear wind noise.
Soft material works by absorbing turbulence energy and the efficiency is very high… since it absorbs energy, it contributes no noise itself.
The solution to reduce Wind Noise while cycling

"Cat-Ears work, in fact, dramatically well. (They) deflect and dampen wind noise... while still letting other sounds like
  traffic or conversation pass (through).  With Cat-Ears, I found I was enjoying rides more, simply because I could hear
  more of what I wanted to (hear), and less of what I didn’t." Joe Lindsey -  Bicycling Magazine

"Cat-Ears work well at reducing wind noise, particularly at higher speeds.  Allowing improved awareness of surrounding
 traffic (and racers)” - “I heard little more than tires, gears, and birds on my am ride.” J. Huang, Tech Editor at BikeRadar 

"Wrap this half-inch pile of faux fur around your front helmet strap to reduce wind noise in your ears by 40 to 60 percent,
  so you can more easily hear cars coming and friends talking... For races, pick up some lower-profile Cat Ear Pros."
  Erin Beresini, (8 Triathlon Essentials for Racing Fast... Dominate the road with the help of this gear)  Outside Magazine

"Getting around by bike is enjoyed by all the senses... the simple and ingenious Cat-Ears allow us to hear what is really
  important... without the distortion of the air (~ wind noise)..." Translation from the review by Manel Ibars at Bicimag (Spain)

"With these (Cat-Ears)... now you can actually hear more of what's coming up behind you... if you are in a road race or
 mountain bike cross country race, you'll be able to better hear your opponent attacking you from behind and this will give
 you an advantage over the other racers." From the review by Robert Sandoval on Bike Sport Radio (Los Angeles, California)

"We tested various models for many months... yes, they work! Obviously they don't fully eliminate wind noise. However,
 the reduction proves significantTranslation from the review by Amal Donnet (correspondant-testeur) at Velo de Route (France)

"Do they work? Yes, as advertised, Cat-Ears reduce wind noise while riding. We logged a handful of rides wearing the Classics
 Pro model and found it easier to hear traffic and carry on conversations with our riding friends"  J. Sumner (Road Bike Review)

"Small items of synthetic fur that attach themselves to your helmet straps and position right before your ears, with an effect
 similar to windshields that journalists put on microphones outside. Wind noise is not completely removed, but significantly
 attenuated and muted. The other observation is that I feel like I am riding slower..."  Joakim Fess (Bikin' Valais - Switzerland)

"Cat-Ears are made of acrylic faux fur material and mimic actual cat’s ears, a method that is commonly used in the recording
 industry to reduce wind noise. The 'ears' are fastened onto helmet straps with a Velcro..."   Krista Carlson - Urban Velo

"I cannot say enough good things about this product. Having said that, I will now attempt to summarize my elation at an
 ingenious solution to a heretofore unsolved dilemma. (Wind Noise) can inhibit one’s ability to distinguish traffic noise, often
 a first line of defense, particularly in an urban setting...  Cat Ears don't restrict hearing while others I've tried do. Anytime that
 sightlines are restricted, audio cues can be the only warning to exercise caution."  P. Finley - Adventure Cycling Association

Listen to the Cat-Ears Product Review
"I had the opportunity to try your products this weekend... About halfway through the ride, I suddenly realized
that I could hear EVERYTHING that was being said in my group of 5 riders! I could still hear some wind noise,
but I was very impressed with the fact that I could hear riders several bike lengths in front of me."
