Any of you guys ride your motorcycle while listening to music? IF so, what kind of ways you listen to music? is it like earphones? Or did you install some sort of speaker to your bike? I was wondering if it was possible to do that.

I pod nano, I only wear one ear bud while riding(definently buy better ear buds ), run it up through my jacket , if i'm not wearing a helmet it can hear it up to about 60 and if I am I can ride for about an hour before the vibration starts to hurt my ear. Plus I can still hear whats going on around me at all times, which is clutch.

Does anyone know where I can get a set of headphones that are molded for my ear??? I saw them one time at Road Atlanta when they were having the races but I never saw them again after that so I could get me some....

Those Sure headphones roxxor.. I've got an iriver H340 coupled up with those Sures, and the sound is phenomenal (at any speed)..

Mattf - what you should realise is that Sure is a professional music equipment brand, aimed at studio use (they also produce good mikes), so they will last a lot better than your run-of-the-mill bud-earphones. I've punished mine since day 1, and they still deliver perfect sound, no pops, no crackles, nothing but what you wanna hear..

On my BMW I am all set up with an AutoCom amplifier, bike power, XM satellite radio, Ram mounts, etc, etc. It's pretty suave rico. On the R1 I sometimes use Shure E2C Etymotic headphones and my iPOD mini - works fine - the mini just slips in to my chest pocket.

I use a RIO sport model... I found KOSS earbugs that have the ear strap were actually the easiest to get in and out of the helmet. The nice thing is with the RIO i can actually change tunes with my gloves easily... I just wrap it around my right arm. If I crank it up I can still hear it doing 180 kph... The Arai helmet is loud enough plus my race baffled exhaust that I normally couldn't hear much trafic anyways... so i'm not worried driving with tunes from time to time.

sony makes a set of ear buds that rock. there like 40 bucks at best buy. I can hear everthing around me plus I can hear at high speeds. Best part no ear problems from wearing them for long periods of time.

These are the ones I found to be the best... soft ruber makes them flexibal to get in and out..

These are the sony's i've tried...

I would highly recommend staying AWAY from those sony's... the hard plastic design sticks out to the side at the bottom of the ear and ends up being real painfull for longer drives. I'd like to know which sony's you've tried. The problem I find is that I require an ear clip otherwise the earbud falls out while i'm trying to pull my helmet on.

:fact :iamwithst Honestly.. I debated for a while.. they are worth the 100 bones... you can hear the music perfectly... the quality is great... and they are very durable.
