Been listening to music while on the roads all the time. Not on dirt though, need the engine noise to know I am in the power band. As for the amp, I use foam ear plugs and an Autocomm unit with my TomTom Rider blue tooth adaptor. I very rarely use the sound, but in a big new city, I use it because you really need to turn off the display and just use the sound directions, a lot safer imho.
Pay the extra for the sound, at least you have the choice when you may need it.
