Can anything be done about wind noise?

I enjoy riding my Motiv Shadow. However, as I start to ride over 12 mph, the wind blowing past my ears begins to bother me. At speeds of 20 to 24 mph the racket is really annoying. I wear earplugs, and they help somewhat, but the wind blows across them too, and transmits sound almost as loud. I have noticed that if I cup my hand in front of the ear the sound from the wind stops completely. Does anyone know of a solution?

I would try a different type of earplugs. For motorcycle riding I've tried several different types of earplugs and found some keep out the wind noise better than others.

It's goofy and not by design but my helmet is a kayaking helmet with rubberized plastic earflaps that might mimick the hand cupping effect somehow.
