I like my sena's.

Either way, use a pair of plugfones with them for the best sound.

"plugphones" a particular type or brand, or general reference to all plugable 3.5 headphones?

Speakers for any helmet Bluetooth suck compared to a good set of ear buds. Earbuds also reduce/remove wind noise.

Do what I did, buy cheapy china ones for like 40 bucks. Grab some cheap old over the head phones, take the cushion off of those in shove those in your helmet with the speakers from the bluetooth in them. The sound is a MASSIVE improvement.

I normally use earplugs as well... Sena speakers still loud enough even with earplugs in.. I like the earbud idea accept the inconvenience of putting them on.. obviously earbuds would be even louder than the sena speakers

I wish, bc ear buds are best imo keeping out other noises and raising actual volume.

I've found that using over the ear hook ear buds are best for listening to anything, esp at high, triple digit speeds.

Solracer is knows. I use Pluphones too. They are designed to as hearing protection with the goal or reducing ambient noise like good earplugs but with a speaker in them. I know a few riders who swear by them. You can get Bluetooth versions or simple 3.5 plugs cheap.

I use the BT-S2 system. The connectivity works fine, but the communicator portion is meh. I primarily use mine for phone calls and music so it work perfectly fine. The sound is crisp and clear cruising at 80
