Find a set of earbuds that you like then get these tips:

I've used them with Klipsch and Etymotic buds... work great to isolate noise, won't fall out of your ears and are all day comfortable.

Wow! thanks guys. I didn't expect such a response. I've used a Skull Candy and the JVC and a couple other sets of "isolation" buds with mixed results. All of them required the the volume to be up too high. Seemed fine on the bike, then I'd get off and realize just how loud the music was. So I'm trying to avoid that as much as possible.

It seems I have a lot of research to do on your suggestions. I like those Comply foam things. I hadn't seen those before. For the price I'm going to get a set to try out.

I don't like the idea of software noise isolation. If I have the phone on it's mount behind the windscreen, or in my pocket, it likely will be killing the wrong sounds. Smart idea though for things like train stations and such.

It's safe to say that if I had the cash to blow on a set of $300 head phones I probably wouldn't be riding a 13 year old Bandit. :)

Cheers fellas. Your reviews and suggestions will be very helpful. I'll dig through the internet to research your recommendations.

I'll see ya out in the wind.

I ordered these yesterday. From the reviews they seem to fit the bill. Thanks.

I recommend Sure 535, they work well and they fit in my helmet (aria xd3). They are noise canceling and they have an incredible warranty program. The quality of sound is impeccable. I've had great success with them for about 8 years.

Me too

Thanks for starting that post...I am looking forward to try my new M6...I like my helmet rather snug and fitting earbuds is always a problem. I like the flat part.
Cool thanks

I have the Etymotic MC5's.

They suck as far as sticking out of the ear too far. But they sound great if I get lucky and don't knock them out putting the helmet on.

I'll be looking for some with focus being on they don't stick out of the ear that far

Proper fit

I can guarantee that ours will not stick out at all and are very comfortable with incredible sound capabilities used by some of the biggest names in audio and music.... Pink Floyd and Black Sabbath to name a couple and show the vast capabilities

there are also http://www.decibullz.com/ which look similar but maybe a slightly large profile.


MotoDave, Did you get your Earfuze buds, how do you like them?

+1 on Etymotic MC5

Link to Amazon.com > http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

I use these. They come with the rubber flanges like in the photo, but also foam tips. They have pretty good sound and the foam blocks the wind better than the 33db shooting foam ear plugs I use at the gun range. They work very well for me, but as someone else noted they do stick out of your ears, so it's sometimes tricky to get your helmet on over them. I love them, and I won't ride without them on long trips.
