Go to Guitar Center and pick up a pair of these. They come with different ear pieces so you can get the best fit for your ears. I've used them for years with my In Ear Wireless system.

Wrong links - My bad. The i series are the ones that you need. I have the E2c's which have been discontinued but they're basically the same thing without the switch.

Let me give you a little tip that I figured out and it works great. I went through several sets always unsatisfied for for one reason or another. So then I took just a regular pair of ear buds like the one in these links. I pulled off the little rubber pieces. I took a pair of the orange foam moldable type of safety ear plugs. I cut off the big flared end leaving a the part that goes into your ear about 1/2 inch long. The I flattened it out on a table top and used a belt hole punch type of punch and punched a small hole through it. Then after it reshaped it's self I took it and pulled it over the little speaker thingy. Now I just kind of roll it between my thumb and forefinger then stick it in my ear and it seals great so you don't have to hear wind noise and it sounds great.

Yeah, no the stock Ipods are like a little speaker and the earbud type has like a little tube the sticks out from the speaker that the little rubber thing goes over. I bought this kind of earbud from walmart for like $15 and adapted my modified earplug. Nothing else stayed in my ear well and sealed up good. So when put them in and put my helmet on they'd fall out or if they didn't fall out I'd have to turn the all the way up before I started moving because of all the wind noise once I got going.

The cool thing is if I loose one tear one or what ever I just make another.

I got custom made earphones at the motorcycle show a couple years ago. They cost $330 but are worth it. I can wear them under the helmet all day long and they don't bother me.

Are you kidding me. Earphones for $330! I can see $30 but not 300 for earphones. I don't need to hear anything for $300.

I don't know about the gummy ones. Doesn't seem like they would hold on to the earphone very well but I don't know.

I precisely got a new earbuds today at bestbuy. They are "the high performance noise canceling earbuds" from Sony and the sounds is just remarkable. For the price[$48] they are the best sounding and most comfortable earbuds I've owned. The Bass is extraordinary for their size, and with the noise canceling feature they sound pretty close to the boss earphones which cost 2x as much.
