I can't add to what has already been said, so will just add my vote to the importance of wearing earplugs. I wear plain old squishy foam earplugs - they work well and are disposable, and I have a free lifetime supply.
I use about four different kinds, mostly because the kind that reduce noise the most can get a bit uncomfortable after several hours - so I wear them for several hours, then wear a different kind (no pain, but slightly more noise) for awhile. If all or most of my ride will be at less than highway speeds (urban commuting, rural twisty's) then I wear a kind that doesn't dampen sound quite as much as the really-good-but-can-get-uncomfortable kind, because at lower speeds there is less white noise.
Experiment and decide what works best for you!
