Default What do you use for music in your helmet?

I enjoy listening to music while I ride and when I use my fullface helmet it is easy as can be to use my earbuds but riding with a halfhelmet I cant even hear the music with my earbuds in. Thinking about modifying some full size headphones to use.
Anybody have any things that they have found to work well?

Half helmet with good earbuds... Then I throw a bandanna over my face to hold the buds in.

Are you using in-the-ear earbuds? I've used in-the-ear skullcandy earbuds with a half helmet for years and never have had issues hearing music.

I use a Bluetooth receiver (NoiseHush NS560-11977 Clip-on Bluetooth Stereo Headset) that I clip to my helmet with a pair of headphones that Velcro to inside of my helmet

A good set of in-the-ear buds are it.

The ones I currently use:

And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

I run a lot of Skullcandy for a lot of things... mainly large cans and buds.

Buds and a bandana to keep them in place for when I'm riding.
