The wind noise sound level can be very loud while riding even on a fully faired bike, but a naked bike is even worse.
I used to use earplugs, all the time and sometimes still do.
Another Big help, to reduce wind noise is to use a Madstad wind shield, as it smooths out wind noise and smooths the air stream behind it, it provides Clean smooth air, better than any other windshield i have tried, as they are deigned different.
I have a new sony walkman, they re very compact, with the right head set they sound great and get rid of most of that wind noise
