Today i tried to get in a few miles with a JBL Clip 2 on the handle bars. While i do enjoy the silence, i am not sure i will wear ear buds. Are you running speakers on your bike?
I happily use an Autocomm as well.I have an Autocomm system, an older one, hardwire to the helmet rather than bluetooth. I have VOX stitch and PTT button next to my horn on left handlebar for mic, stereo speakers in helmet, also noise sensor in helmet for noise cancelling. I have direct connection to my Zumo GPS, I have a SD card of MP3 I put in the zumo, several play lists, I did a play all when I did my IBA BunBurner Gold, in 24 hours, never had a repeat. I have a bluetooth connection between cell phone and the Autocomm, phone calls at 80 mph are clearer than stopped and without aid of the noise cancelling and volume priorities, another input is my V-1 radar detector, and I have an input for 2 way radio, I've used it with cheap FRS radios and my nice Motorolas
and if you just want the music of the exhaust... just turn it off
Pioneer Rayz allow charging and listening via the Lightning port at the same time.I did recently get a new iPhone with no 3mm aux plug (thanks Apple for making things harder) so charging the phone via the lightening cord and using ear buds at the same time were out.

Just be careful with any rain ....takes a LOOOOONG time to stop crackling if any moisture gets in. Otherwise the noise cancelling works well and they are very low profile. Different tips helps the seal. I use a very thin balaclava to keep them in place and easier putting helmet on and off.
The outside helmet controls are useful but that's where the moisture can get in.
I generally just have the Rayz plugged into the iPhone on short rides and on longer rides I charge the phone while listening. As navigation and a full bright screen really eats battery life that feature was critical.
All weather earphones are the Shure SE215 with replaceable everything.
You have to position them correctly in your ears to get them to be low profile. But very durable and now going on 5 years with no issue. Again choice of tips matter for seal. I found a new supplier whose tips I really like but can't recall the name. They are bright red as well so can find the earphones easily if I set them down.
Maybe these ..
