I had the same problem plus I hate having "things" stuck in my ears so I carved up a perfectly good pair of medium price Sony headphones. Put the pieces in my helmet wrapped up the extra line and ended up with the 3.5 mm plug sticking down at the edge of the helmet. Plug my Zen into it via a ZipLinQ (http://www.ziplinq.com/) and ride on.....:mrgreen:I recieved a mp3 player for christmas and while the earbuds work it doesnt take much movement with my helmet to get them out of place. Is there something made that works better than the earbuds? Thanks for any help
The Shure's block out something like 20db of noise. I find that they are very good for eliminating wind noise in the helmet, and as a bonus they block out crying babies on airplanes too. :mrgreen:I always wear foam ear plugs when riding so I need ear buds that really cut the sound and keep the wind noise out. I have the Sony's that were recommended and love them at home and in the cage, but they do not stop enough noise for me to be comfortable riding for long distances. I am going to try one of the sets with foam like the Shure that was recommended and if that isn't quiet enough, I will get some custom ear plugs with the speakers molded in. They are expensive, but all the LD guys I know who have them say they are worth every penny.
