So, tell me folks, do you find that the ear plugs work for both

They are fully functioning ear-plugs (i.e. with music turned off they
work as earplugs) that conform to EU and ISO regulations for noise
reduction / ear protection. But plug them into an audio source, and
they also work as highly effective stereo earphones. They are sold
with the option of 'voice' or 'music' speakers - I have the music ones
and they produce excellent sound quality on par with premium in-ear
headphones I've tried from audio firms. They are so good that I've
regularly used them on long flights as headphones of choice - they
keep out the sound rather better than these 'noise reducing'
electronic headphones do. They also include something called a
'microfilter' that allows some sound through - so you can hear
something with them in (such as engine note at 8K etc.). Also, they
are designed to be 'flush' with outside of your ear, so putting a
helmet on while wearing them doesn't present any problems. They are
