    ear buds?

    What are you guys using for ear buds in a full face helmet? I'm looking for something that will tuck right in the ear canal and block most the ambient noise.

    Ideas?

    I'm just looking for the smallest decent in ear buds I can find under $50. Not a huge audiophile and not too concerned about audio quality.
    I've recently become a fan of steaming audio through an app called HiDef Radio, most of it is broadcast at 128 anyway.

    These are the ones I use when I ride, they are pretty good quality and the remote is really useful!

    I use these in my helmet. Good fit, comfortable, and block a good ammount of the road noise.

    Just checked the link and it's a UK site, but you can find them at the source.
    I'm done with old mistakes, I think I'll make some new ones!!

    i know when was at the bike show there was a vender that does costum earplugs with earbuds built right in. it might be Custom Protect Ear or www.nulifehearing.com can't remember which 1 pricey but 1 time buy and fits and blocks out sound
    So, paper beats rock. You sure about that? Let's work it out. Hold a piece of paper in front of your face. I'll throw the rock.

    pretty sure it's illegal, at least headphones when driving or riding are...
    Maybe it's just me, but I'd rather hear the firetruck/ambulance/police car/DUMPTRUCK,
    coming than any music. Not trying to tell you what to do,Just like to see everyone keep
    the rubber side down.

    check out Halo.com. New headband with earphones for iPod Nano. May work with a helmet. I ordered these for running.

    Oh yeah, you can still hear what's going on around you as they are not stuck right into the ear.

    I use a Bluetooth helmet, with earbuds and mike installed. I use my iPhone to stream music into my helmet, and the helmet has controls on the side to turn the music up/down and change tracks, or to answer the phone. The bucket will also automatically answer the phone after 8 seconds without doing anything. I don't have the luxury of being able to ride, and missing a call for work. Have had my Bluetooth bucket going on two seasons, and my new bucket will also have Bluetooth built in.
