Headphones for riding

My Shure SE310's recently developed a crack in their cord and I'm looking to replace them. I had bought a pair of Beats by Dre in ears and found them to be less than comfortable for long periods. They have a new model that wraps around the ear and I was wondering if anyone had experience with them. The new Shures they make look fat and bulky. Have any favorites? I prefer something with the foam inserts as the rubber ones tend to fall out.

a lot of riders don't listen to music, it keeps them from hearing important traffic and engine noises.

maybe skullcandy works.

I keep my volume fairly low. I can hear horns, my engine, emergency vehicles etc. At a stop I can converse with people as well.

These headphones are not as expensive: http://www.motrax.co.uk/index.php?se...NES&mod=search but they sound incredible and they are made for helmets. Another note, I had the beats by dre tours recently replaced (they broke) and when I recieved the new set they came with a set of nifty little "wrap arounds" that prevented them from ever falling out of your ears. I havent tried them with a helmet but they work well at the gym.

I use some Skull Candys that EndoMonkey got me a while ago. They fit great and have a button on the cord so I can pause or skip to the next track. Wish they had a volume control though.

Skull candy is gonna be most economical. You can get em for like 10-20 bucks. But they have rubber inserts. JVC marshmallows have foam inserts and they work pretty well. Also 20 bucks. I use em daily. But I've never had a pair last me more than six months... Of any brand

Get another set of Shure. Maybe even the e4. Or Etymotic.

Skull candy and all those sub-50 dollar ones are compared.

Sure they are... but when I'm on my bike I just want some light tunes in the background, not high end recording studio quality fidelity.

I started out with a pair of $79 Sony earbuds.
Found some Skullcandy's on sale for $14 one day and decided to get them cause everyone gave them good reviews.
Same MP3 player, SC blew the Sony's away.

The reason I like the Shures, is because they mimic ear plugs the best. I always wear ear plugs and the Shure and Etymotic are the ones that allow you to block out noise like ear plugs allowing you to only barely turning up the Ipod.

I repeat, compared, they are .

Not very good for riding. Get the good ones and save your hearing.

You ever wear a set of Shure or Etymotic?

Worst thing about using them, if they ever break, get lost, or for what ever reason you no longer have them, you really cant go back to cheao ones.

I lost, rather misplaced, my er-6i's... and found them about 2 days after I got my new pair. So now my girl inherited the 2nd set. I think maybe she misplaced them on purpose.

I haven't worn the Shure's but I love my Etymotics.

Personally I don't know how people ride with buds in... I did it once for a ride up on the twisted sisters and after 24 hours of solid riding in 3 days I found my ears ringing for 2 weeks after and I'm still scared of what it did to my ears permanently. Since then...only use ear plugs, although... I found I did need some tunes so ended up getting a set of SMH10's... awesome awesome unit! Speakers mount in the helmet, more volume then I can use on highways (90+mph) with the plugs in and of course its nice that it bluetooths to my phone. Recently went back to the sisters for a weekend and gave my spare set to my buddy and it was nice to be able to chat back and forth when we came to route decisions or whatever without needing to stop the bikes.
