music earphones for riding
For those interested: I have been purchasing expensive ($140) in earcanal earphones for the past two years. The first pair broke after one year (wire came loose from the in ear speaker). I loved the earphones, and purchased a second one the next year. This one just broke, and I would not spend the $$$ for another one to break a third time.
I searched the internet and found Plugfones. I purchased two ($14. each) and just received them. I tried them and they work just like the $140. pair, but for a tenth of the price. Personally, I like to listen to music while I ride, and these will fit the bill fine. They exclude wind noise, and you do not need to crank the music on high, as they fit IN the ear canal.
BTW, I also purchased the no noise noise filters from twisted throttle for when I just want quiet. They are fantastic and do exactly what they advertise.
