Cat-Ears are the best selling and most effective Wind Noise* reduction products of their kind – see comparative analysis.
They have been independently tested / recommended by Bicycling, Bike Radar, Road Bike Review, and Outside Magazines.
Introduced in 2012, the ‘CLASSIC’ is our original Acoustic (WNR) Faux Fur based product designed for Casual to Competitive Cyclists.
Based on proven audio aero-acoustics, Cat-Ears are made from materials that ‘quiet and diffuse’ oncoming wind – making the shear layer gentle and causing the noise producing turbulence to move away from your ears.
Cat-Ears products are sound permeable for safe road cycling. “Wind Noise can inhibit one’s ability to distinguish traffic noise, often a first line of defense in an urban setting. Cat-Ears don’t restrict hearing while others I’ve tried do.” – Adventure Cycling Association. Our materials have been tested for effectiveness / transparency at Antioch University.
*Wind Noise is a complex phenomenon spanning aerodynamics, acoustics, and the physiology of human hearing. The amount experienced depends on factors like: 1) speed, 2) riding position, 3) head shape, 4) turbulence, and so on. With Cat-Ears, wind noise levels are reduced by 14-16 dBA between 20 and 20k Hz. This is a reduction in sound pressure level of ~80%. But microphones and ears behave differently. And while the amount of perceived wind noise reduction can vary, we stand behind our products as the most effective devices of their kind on the market.
“As advertised, Cat-Ears significantly reduce wind noise. We found it easier to hear traffic and carry on conversations with riding friends.” – Road Bike Review
Cat-Ears are proven to be >25% more effective than sound obscuring ‘wind blocks’.
