No hearing protection, though.

With my old HLC CL-SP I could use Super.fi 3 Studio's if I installed them upside down, my new SHOEI QWEST has a much tighter fit and there is no way the super.fi will work. The VSONIC GR07 fit's far enough into the ear to work with my new Shoei but since this is new to me and it's winter I haven't done the ride test yet.

Mid Priced? Considering that the best cost around $1400. http://news.cnet.com/8301-13645_3-57...tear-togo-334/
Anything that sounds great for under $200 is a good buy.

There is a cheaper version of the VSONIC GR07 called the VSONIC GR06 http://inearaddiction.blogspot.ca/20...onic-gr06.html

I also have a set of MEElectronics M6 http://inearaddiction.blogspot.ca/20...ronics-m6.html which are cheap,sound good and fit my Shoei

If your using a Iphone or touch this DSP program works well https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/audi...537422341?mt=8

I've been using the Etymotic mc5 with good results. They are a little longer than the er6 but work well with my helmet. Noise isolation is fantastic.

More Audio stuff

This guy likes his tunes and has a nice setup

The q-JAYS are no longer in production but can still be found, at least for now.

Rockit Sounds R-50 look like they would work well, they have good reviews and can be had for around $120.

Nocs NS800 About the same size and price of the Q-Jays $200.

O.K I've put about 1000 miles on with the Nocs NS800 And I really like them, they sound great, they look to be built really well and best of all they fit nicely inside my snug Shoei helmet.

My ER6is are good but the plug has started to flake. Are there "replace your plug" services? Seems like someone probably does that for $20-30.

(yes, I can solder it myself. I don't want to fuss with the tiny little wires)

For the most demanding in-ear monitor enthusiast.....

ps: again, try something non-household/less generic....Westone IEMs are fantastic for in-helmet wear.

The problem with hi-end cans is that the motorcycle is such a noisy environment that noise attenuation is more important than fidelity. I find that my ER-6i's sound just as good as my Shure E-530's on the bike because they isolate better so you can actually hear the music better. No comparison off the bike.

BTW, Q-Jays worked great but the quality control was awful. I went through two sets in 4 months before going to the ER-6i, which have lasted in daily use for 4 years.

I find the noise attenuation and fidelity to be both very good with the Westone IEMs. My Shure E2cs have held up well too (so many years of use) but are nowhere as comfy and musical as my Westones (2 & 4). Ymmv

But do the westones fit into your ear canal as deeply as the Er6i?

With all the demand for the er6i why in the world were they discontinued?

I have a pair of s-wires which look very similarly shaped to the er6i IEMs and prefer the fit of my Westones over the other, especially in helmet.

Your right, what counts most is fit,comfort and seal that's why I suggested the MEElectronics M6 for $25 it's a good starting point, if you don't like em then I think you must move into the $100 plus range to get something that will work with a helmet.

I think we can scratch the Q-Jays off the list, I've read of cord issues to add to your dislikes.

I have a deal in the works for a used set of Nocs NS800 So I'll have 3 sets of IEM's to play with this spring.

Goin cheap http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/as...9GPT4/211m4-20 They had them on sale for $84. now back to $199.

Anybody tried these? Twist to fit them into your ear, designed for the runner, etc. so they don't fall out while exercising. Seems like the twist in approach might be good for motorcyclists.
