Yoooo, so I like listening to music while riding my motorbike. But earbuds are kind of a pain, they tend to hurt after a while, and getting them to stay in position while putting the helmet on is a hassle. I like the idea of more "over-ear" style of headphone, because then i'd still hear my bike's sound to some degree, so I know intuitively when to shift or dump the clutch for wheelies n shit.
To be honest, every time I listen to music while riding, I get pumped and it turns into motoGP in the streets. But alas, i'm still looking for a good solution for music while riding, even if I have to restrict myself to classical genres.
There're lots of bluetooth comm headsets on the market. I don't care too much to talk to friends while riding, it'd be cool n' all, but i'm concerned about the quality of these motorcycle brands. I just want something to pump good sound into my ears without the speakers blowing or the cords deteriorating. Seems like i go through headphones ridiculously fast... So a good warranty (like skullcandy) is a plus.
I found these bluetooth Outdoor Tech Chips, which are headphone inserts for helmets (like ski and snowboard helmets). They're pretty much exactly what I want, except they're 0.5" thick, so i don't think they'd fit too well. And no way am I going to shave foam on the interior of an $$$ Arai helmet to fit them, especially because I can't risk compromising the integrity of my helmet. Protecting my head is the #1 priority haha. Anyway, just wondering if anyone here knows of headphones that they think might match my criteria?
These are the chips I found
And in case it isn't clear, this style of helmet.
