Default Ear bud preference

I wear a half helmet with no covers.....I know, I know....but what ear buds work well on a bike for you? I have worn Sony before with volume control on them as well...worked ok...just looking for a new pair. Only really wear on longer road trips.

MEElectronics M6-BK-MEE Sport Noise-Isolating In-Ear Headphones with Memory Wire (Black)



These are what I use and i like them. Only thing is i wish the memory wire was stiffer but they work well enough to not bother me.

I run skullcandy buds. Tried quite a few different ones, but those seem to work the best for me.

I wear skullcandy buds as well. The buds themselves seem to last forever, but I wish that I could find the foam replacement covers that go in the ear locally. I've found that only the foam ones fit into the ear and stay put all day, but I can only get the replacements on-line. Nobody sells them locally. - Mike

I also wear half helmet with the new Apple buds with the speakers pointing toward the front of your ear.

Try these.


Motorola S305 Bluetooth Stereo Headset w/ Microphone

Volume control on the top edge. Answer phone calls or mute music are all controllable on the right ear.

Another Skullcandy guy here and I wear a half helmet as well, trying wearing a bandana or a neck gaiter pulled up over your ears really helps with blocking out the wind noise and plus keeps the sun off your face.

I have skull candy buds in custom gel ear molds I had made at a rally about a month ago. $100, and they are almost as good as regular foam earplugs, but with tunes. My alternate is Westone 2's, with extra long foam inserts. About the same as the custom molds.

Mike,

Best Buy has some after-market replacement foam covers. Just make sure you get the ones with the bigger holes.
