I tried, but can't really hear it over the wind noise...also I haven't found earbuds worth a crap for m/c helmet yet. It seemed like a good idea, then ended up being a pain in the ass. I rather like hearing my engine, as well.

+1

The Sex Pistols and Lamb of God would probably make me spontaneously combust on speedy. Total sensory overload, but fun to think about.

i know that when i'm at the track with my car i always have the radio on even if i can't REALLY hear it over pitching the car sideways, the open wastegate, and the burning tires. If i nail a really solid run then i'll blast that song for every other run that day to keep me consistant. I tried to listen to my ipod on the S3 for a long ride once but the headphones got really uncomfortable under my helmet and i ended up pulling them out

I have a cheaper version of these:

They're great! Once you get used to them, they quiet down the outside noise so you can listen to your music at a lower volume and it still is loud enough. I use them to mow the lawn, run, whatever - they're great!!! And the best part? The sound quality is 1000 times better than regular buds. Shure makes a great product -

I wear the ipod for long boring rides... I still have the standard buds, they have worked fine for me but I might invest in these
http://www.cyclegadgets.com/Products/product.asp?Item=CB-HSAUDO not sure but possible. I find that sometimes music can take me out of a riding funk, (that feeling of not being ON while riding harder). I do however keep them turned down quite a bit basically background music.

80% of time if I'm headed out of town, I've got the music on.

Wow does it make a difference. I can actually slow down if I've got a little buffett or dead on. RATM on the other hand turns me into an instant asshole on two wheels... :smitty:

Some of the headphones mentioned earlier are a bit pricey for me...I just picked up a set a couple of weeks ago from the local music store (FYE) on sale for $9.99 and they work great! They come with 3 different sizes of silicone pieces to help fitment and they seal out my helmet noise almost completely...that said, I can listen at low volume (15 % on my cheap mp3 player) and still hear the jardines.


The buds I bought look like these, but do not have inline volume control as advertised here:

I am sporting these:

They work pretty well. I turn the volume so I can just hear the wind noise and figure I am cool. I can hear anything I would without them and I have found that a little background music helps me concentrate on the road. I seem to ride with more confidence while listening to music. Tool, Nirvana, old school Metallica, all of these are good for a longer ride. If I am just commuting, I don't bother, but when I take the long way, on less populated backroads, oh yeah.

Mid-priced ear plugs and the Chatterbox speakers installed in the helmet. I have been listening to music so long, it is tough to ride without it.

I got the smiking buds recently and really like them. Mine do have the inline volume control, watch where you put it, mine turned down when I'd do a head check. As far as fit goes, it takes some cussin to get em to stay in when putting your helmet on, but wonce its on they're in and they're comfortable. I've been listening to a lot more music lately.
