the skull candy buds have good quality sound, but shoot for a pair with a braided covering on the wire. it snags a lot less on jackets and you wont hear it as much as you do the rubberized wires flapping around.

ear plugs.

have SMH10 integrated into my helmet, more than enough volume to hear over ear plugs when I want to listen to music.

Depends on the buds and your helmet.

I have a pair work great that came with an old MP3 player... expanding foam just like earplugs.
Everyone raved about skull candy's, so I got a pair of those. Can't get my helmet on with them in my ears. They are so large, and my helmet is snug, so it pulls them at least part way out every time. They do sound great... I just can't use them with a helmet.

I have never had any problems with them being pulled out and I wear a size XL in most lids. Even when I ride. Short story, I was flying down 59 with a small group coming from downtown and I had my classic ipod (150G) in my breast pocket. Well, the thing flew out of my pocket and gone forever while my earbuds stayed put in my ears. I would also like to mention that I have worn my beats by dre tours under my helmet as well and while there were no problems with them coming out, I still prefer the V-Moda over the beats.

I have a set of small Sony earbuds that I purchased from Best Buy. They are the first I've had that don't snag, and the bass is pretty decent.

You guys are crazy blocking the sound of the streets with music , I couldn't do that too many bad drivers in Houston. I like hearing the sounds of the streets when they talk.

With the band I use the Shure SE315. They're dual driver so the bass comes in real clear. Not sure how they would do on the road.

You probably aren't going to hear the one that gets you, might as well go out jamming!

My GPS has XM radio and I do travel quite a bit. I've gone to El Paso non-stop more or less back and forth several times. Let me tell you, after that 6th hour on the road, you can't survive on the sound of wind alone!

I don't usually wear them when I'm just bombing around Houston proper. You never spend much time on your bike just running errands inside the loop. When I drive back and forth between southern brazoria county and houston I do usually put them in though. It's a long, dark, straight road that make 45 minutes seem like an eternity.

skullcandy ink'd. <$10, noise cancelling, in ear (so it won't snag while putting on your helmet), and has a long cord. Best price for what you get and they are sold everywhere. Walmart, cycle gear, amazon, etc.

I love the Skullcandy TiTans, way better than the ink'd, but also more expensive.

I don't know about you guys, but I can still hear my exhaust over the noise cancelling buds, even with music on. I can't tell that my hearing is any more "restricted" than riding without, but it does help to decrease fatigue.
