These are the perfect ear buds to use if you are in extremely rough work areas. I’ve tried all other kinds and they work great if you work in a cubicle but for real work of construction and farming they all broke within a month . These ruckus cords won’t break and rain doesn’t bother them no does sweat. They are perfect ear protection for shooting as well. The only improvement that could be done is the silicon ear piece degrades after a summer of sweat and dirt and cracks. If another set came with them that would be nice, or make the silicon better.
I use the Ruckus+ as part of a DIY in-ear monitor when playing drums with my band. The earbuds provide a good feed from the mic I set up in the middle of the room, while the earplugs protect me from my own racket. Probably not how I'm supposed to use them, but they work!
I get a little clicking sound when I turn my head while I am wearing these in my motorcycle helmet. It is only when I turn my head so not sure if it is just they way they are in my ear. They do a great job of reducing the noise, I used to use noise cancelling earbuds but these are probably just as good. I would (and will) buy another pair just to keep as a back up.
