Tech Question for use on Motorcycle

Looking for throat mike/headphones that will be good for riding and not fly off. I just bought the LG headset (the one EVERYONE wears) and, while it has amazing sound, it doesn't want to stay on my neck at speeds greater than.... roughly 50mph+.

Tips, tricks, advice, product ideas?

Smh10. Buy it, you won't regret it. Best thing I've bought. Play music, get directions, text, and call all in one.

SMH-10 (or now they have the SMH-20 out) and a pair of memory foam ear buds. I use the JVC Marshmallows.

like they said, SMH-10, but I personally highly recommend the etymotic research earbuds. I like them primarily for the "32-42 dB noise isolation".

I've always had issues with ear buds. I can never find a pair that can stay in my ear. Anyone else have this issue?

yes.

Check out the memory foam tipped ones.

The JVC's are very small and fit well. Others will too.

I've always had issues with the Apple style buds, but not usually with the rubber tipped ones. The exception was wearing them in a helmet though, always had trouble getting them to stay in after I put the helmet on, especially once I start sweating a little bit.

I really like the long skinny 3 bump design on the tips shown in the stock photo for the buds I posted, but they also come with a shorter 2 bump silicon tip, memory foam tip, and the skull candy style round rubber tip. They are a little pricey though at nearly $60.
