Communications and the ability to determine the location of surrounding sounds, like approaching vehicles, can be important for safer cycling. Our products don't block the sounds that you want and need to hear. In this regard, the materials we use have been independently tested for transparency at Antioch University.
"I can't say enough good things about this product. 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." - Patrick Finley, Adventure Cycling Association
"It has been said that 'the purpose of the ears is to point the eyes'. While the ability of the auditory system to localize sound sources is just one component of our perceptual systems, it has high survival value." - Quoted from the ECE Department, University of California
