Head phones

I know some of you will say that head phones should not / never been used when riding as it is distracting and makes it harder to hear whats going on around you. I understand what you are saying.

Just so you know, they will be used when riding to work which is 110km away and as i do shift work, riding is normally done when there is little to no other vehicles on the road.

For those who have helpful opinions to share i'm looking for a quality in-ear (obviously) head phone which isn't going to break the bank that will sit securely whilst wearing a helmet. The cord needs to be of a length that will reach my inner jacket pocket and have a little slack to spare.

I've tried the build it yourself inner ear molds, you can get them cheap enough, but eventually the wire will pull out from the bud. I think you need to get fitted by a company that specializes in this if you really want good sound. Most of my other attempts have just pissed me off putting or taking off my helmet, or too much road noise to enjoy. Sorry not much help. Interested in more answers myself.

I have used for the past 3 years the Bose in ear noise cancelling headphones 20i

They imho are brilliant and you can use with no sound to work like ear plugs or two other settings

You can still hear sirens etc though

They were v expensive but are still going strong and you can listen to music at a much lower volume than you would normally on a bike

Two downsides
you have to charge them up but the battery is very slim and holds a 12 hour charge

You sometimes get a 'boom' when going past vehicles - had to describe its probably a pressure thing and slightly annoying on motorways

You can still listen to music without battery just you lose the noise cancelling ability

I'd also add if you're near Portsmouth in the uk go to their outlet store and ask if they've got any returns - got 20% discount off mine

I've looked at those a few time but found it hard to justify the price, never thought about wearing them under my helmet I may go up to my local Bose store and try them on under my helmet. My old standard Bose headphones have seen better days.

I mounted a quality set of speakers inside my helmet [behind the lining] with a short lead to an Ipod shuffle that clips on my collar and can be turned on/off as desired.

when not in use the short lead tucks away out of sight

Check out the Sena bluetooth options. No wires, speakers allow you to hear the outside environment much better, controls on the side of the helmet (skip, pause/play, volume), and phone capabilities (people can't even tell I'm on the bike while city riding). The SMH-10R is super slim too.

I couldn't stand earbuds as they always ended up falling out, and not having control over the music drove me nuts.

Only downside I found is the sound quality isn't fantastic, but I could care less. I'm riding to ride, not to listen to my favourite music in HD quality. If it's a problem for you, there's options to upgrade the speakers out there.
