etc, etc...

So I switch between Radio 24 Heures and RLM, depending the phases of the race. But after the end, I always cover my ears because of Vandestick's exagerations with his TOM KristenSSSENNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN and Emanuele PiROOOOOOOOOOOOOO !
During the race I just have earbuds because of the reduction to 110 db.

I got my Quietunes from the US. Seemed to be the only supplier at the time. Had them 4 years. Cost me about 70. Worth every penny, IMO.

Thanks folks

For the input. I ordered a pair of both to try them on to see what fits and sounds better.

Looking forward to the trip in June.

Never been to Le Man, but I have been to Grand Prix and various lower level motorsports in the UK and to be honest I never wear any ear protection.

That said I often use a radio and thus the ear plugs take the edge off at times.

I love the noise of events like this and don't like having it blocked out personally.

Radio in ear buds for track time, not to dull the sound really just to hear the radio, works an is comfortable for long periods.

However I have taken to buying some in ear buds for the campsite at night, come Friday it starts to get, shall we say hectic?

Me too!

Should I be awake (unlikely) the loudest sound I hear is the birdsong around 4am, followed by the local church clock at 7am.
