Suggestions for earphones while riding in 2009 - February 7, 2009, 09:59 PM

Well, lets start this thread again...

Headphones..Im not talking about the debate if to use them or not but which ones to get..I have the Shures. But, I almost bought a set that were at the International Motorcycle Show. One was by a company called, "BIG EAR", www.bigearinc.com. There was another one but I lost the card!

So..suggestions or comments? I want to get a pair that are molded to my ear and wont slip off when you put a helmet on..

Big Ear stuff looks nice. I had molds done last year at the DC bike show, and now they call me about once a month to buy something.

They're expensive.

I don't know anyone who has Big Ear stuff, so I don't know how what their quality is like or how their customer service is.

One day, I may get a set of their stereo earphones....but I just can't justify coming up off the $$$$ right now.

I use to wear earphones while I rode, now it's just earplugs.

I rock some $45ish Sennheiser "in ear" bud style headphones. Usually I only keep one side in so I can whats going on around me too. But the silicone ear pieces are money, and i've never had a problem with them shifting around or coming loose while riding!

-1 have no problem with my Skull Candies. I wrap the wire over my ear and then put them insert in ear canal like you would the Shure.

Like so.

That way they don't get pulled out when you put your helmet on.

It is nice to be able to answer calls while riding. I can run my phone through my GPS so I can see who is calling and choose to answer or not. On long trips the ability to talk to someone can make the miles click away faster. On shorter rides, when I have to leave my children with a sitter, I know that I can be reached if a problem arises.

I cannot ride with ear buds in for a long time. They hurt my ears. I have tried several brands and think the ER6's sound great, but for the cost I don't know. Wind noise seems to override the sound quality. I'll stick with speakers and a mixer.

Do you drive and talk on the phone? Same damn thing.

Beats trying to pull over and call someone.

Also my GPS is in my phone. If im riding somewhere nad dont know where it is, I can hear it and let it tell me where I am.

Fits under the helmet well.

I have the same problem with ear buds. The S9 is very comfortable and it doesnt bother me on long trips.

I did the earbud thing for a while, but now that I got the chatterbox, no need.

I had the skull candies, and for 10 bucks, they were well worth it. However, now i wouldn't go back, speakers in the helmet rock, and you don't have to worry about Leos writing an add on ticket...

Ety ER6 is the best way to go. Pretty cheap, and with rubber triple flange tips, they work awesome on a bike.
