I have been hearing various discussions on what riders keep (or don't keep) in their ears when riding. I understand the benefits of wearing special earplugs to lower the dp to help protect your ears. I understand the desire to be able to communicate with other riders/passenger via communication systems on group rides. I understand how people want to incorporate their love of music with riding as well. I can also understand a rider wanting none of the above for reasons of hating things in their ears or for the simple matter of wanting to hear as much as they can. This poll is to identify how people prefer to ride most often. I understand there are occasions for everything (i.e. group rides they wear communication systems), but select which one best describes your most common rides. A reason behind your choice would be nice too (like I like my ears and want to be able to hear when I am 60 that's why I wear earplugs).
