Under helmet earbuds

Looking for a new pair of earbuds to wear under my helmet.

I had a pair of iClever that were great for the price and lasted a couple year before some cord damage cut sound to the left side.

Looking for earbuds, preferably bluetooth that are relatively low profile so pulling a helmet on and off isnt excruciating, and arent too big once under the helmet.

I tend to like the earbuds that have the tether between the two (instead of individual little buds, a la Airpods).

Not really looking for stuff over $75-$100 (which disqualifies airpods).

Thoughts?

I went ahead and just installed bluetooth boom speakers in my helmet connected to an old Sena 10s. For some reason the in-ear buds have been falling out as soon as I put in with the last few I've bought. The airpod type ones don't even stay on when I'm not wearing a helmet so that ones out

Do you allow the string in front or behind your neck? I tried ones similar but my stupid leathers kept catching it in the wind

With the pair of earbuds I had for the last couple years I would run the connecting cord behind my head/neck. It stayed more out of the way in this position.

I always kinda loop part of the cord in between my gin and chin strap to alleviate that.
