Bluetooth question

I have an Ipod, and the earbuds get pulled out of my ears sometimes. kinda hard to fix on the HOV lane from downtown. I looked at the Oneal helmet but didn,t like the fit. /I have an Icon Airframe what options do I have to go wireless with my Ipod?

What kinda earbuds you using? The oneal is the only one that I know of with the built in bluetooth, but there are other options like add-ons. I forget what its called, the Scala rider or something like that, but its pretty pricey. Try skull candy, or my new favorite JVC marshmallows. The ear buds are just like the squishy yellow safety earplugs. They seem to fit well for me. Squish em down, twist em in, pull on helmet. Works everytime. $20.

It's been a while since I've seen them, but RadioShack used to carry a bluetooth adapter for iPods. They're a bit over-priced and kinda bulky, though.

I have the scala rider Q2. Don't waste your money on it for music. It isn't stereo so the music is just ok. I have mine so my pregnant wife can get ahold of me for emergencies. But I use the FM radio in town.

As for buds, I have had good luck with the skull Candy Ink buds. I removed the rubber earpiece and used the foam ones from radioshack. I have no problem keeping them in. By putting them in the opposite ear they say, they actually stay in my ear lobe and the helmet doesn't touch it when putting it on, they are comfortable, provide wind noise reduction and sound good.

I've got the Scala Rider Q2 headset and i like it. Like cogs69 does, i use the radio on the street cause the receiver for the MP3 player does not get close to being heard while riding. The new models supposedly corrected that problem but i'm not sure yet.

Atexanone and I are gonna buy the Scala Rider G4 team headsets soon and i'll give you my input on it.

Ask Jerzey what type wrap around headphones he uses, he's always wearing his when he rides.

Apple does have an accessory to make your ipod Bluetooth capable but in my opinion its overpriced.

As far as earbuds go, i dont remember what i used to use.

I have the Scala rider G4 headset and have used it for Bluetooth with my pm3 player. It sounds decent and is loud enough. I even wear ear plugs to block out the loud road noise and can still hear the music fine. But if I'm riding alone, I usually just use the ear buds instead of the G4. My ear buds have the foam tips much like ear plugs so they block out the noise too. I don't have any problems with them falling out either. One thing that helps keep your ear buds in is a beanie. I wear a thin beanie under my helmet all the time.

I have skullcandies, never an issue putting my helmet on or taking it off. I sometimes leave one off when in traffic and the other one stays in fine. $20 @ Microcenter or Frys.

I got some skullcandies for $9.99 at Target! They are good at blocking road and wind noise as well.

I have the whistler BT3300 and it's a charm. I paired it with my Samsung P3 and it works perfectly. Earbuds slipping out of your ear gets old so that's why I purchased the whistler. The speaker quality inside the helmet is awesome especially if you ride with a noise reduced helmet like the Shoei and Arai. I have the Rocket Carbon Fiber and the sound quality is superb.

Oh, another thing. Hewlett Packard has bluetooth adapter for your Ipod that plugs into your earphone jack. That with the BT3300 or your choice of any bluetooth helmet should work. Only thing is that the HP adapter costs $50. Hope this helps.

I got tired of the plugs falling out when I put my helmet on. i went to Ross and found a pair of headphones that have an ear loop on them. They actually get better as I put on my helmet. No controls though. I was thinking of getting either the phillips H8006 earhook headset with inline controller. Or the IMC Motorcom HS510 it has a directional boom mic so you can even take calls.
