    I don’t like things stuck in my ears, so I put the regular IPod ear buds inside the helmet liner. These worked great for a long time. Then I got a new Helmet and wanted something better. So I got a set of Sony flat head phones, and broke the back piece off (the one that would go over your ear) then stuffed these inside the helmet liner. They work great. You don’t have to worry about them pressing on your ears, or coming out. The sound is just enough, and you can still hear things around you.

    I wear ultimate ears they are custom made with hi tech inbuilt speakers,they take a mould of both your ears and then make the earpieces,they are an exact fit mega comfy and i use them on my bike always.ipod on the 9 and plug in to my garmin 550 on the caponord when im touring.Cost me big money when i got them £176 but wow they are quality sound and when i was blasting through the mountains of Andorra in june listening to my tunes taking in the views they were worth every penny............

    Skull Candy is JUNK, I'll never buy another set of theirs. The left earbud stop working after one week and they keep falling out of my ears, even with a full face helmet.

    Been using them for years, never a problem.

    IT'S NOT ABOUT HOW FAST YOU GET THERE, IT'S ABOUT THE RIDE ITSELF. TAKE YOUR TIME AND ENJOY IT!!

    I used the skull kandy headphones previously and am now using the Monster Jamz. They work really well and claim to be one of the most durable in ear headphones out. I wear a half helmet and have cobra dragsters and can still hear them very well.

    Molded in Ear Buds, the only way to go. Been wearing them for years on long distance rides. Google Molded Ear Buds and pay the money.

    shures are no joke, they are amazing but can be pricey, i believe shures are what the artists use as their "ears" when they are singing on stage.

    Skull candy has a lifetime warranty . I have 2 sets no issues and Currently I am using a set of Sony earbuds that control my ipod so I can change the song or lower the volume if needed . Sony npx 38 or something like that . About 40 bucks I think They sound great !

    I got the EarFuze about a year ago and have ZERO complaints. Would buy them again in a heartbeat. Maybe not the best sound in the world, but are you going on a bike ride or a symphony

    How the heck do you guys hear anything with those buds stuffed in your ears? Between the buds and the pipes can you hear a car horn or sirens? Sorry, new rider and I respect the bike a little too much to think about music at the moment.

    I'm the same. I listen to the motor. In high school I owned a '69 Firebird 400 4 speed car. It just had an AM radio that I never listened to. My buddies would always ask me "where's the tunes?''. I would "get on it" in a couple of gears and shut em up. Some people just don't understand! 35 years later and I haven't changed a bit.
