Music while riding?

Hey fellow riders! I just watched this video about Big Ear custom earbuds/hearing protection for riding and I want to know if any of you here tried their products. I'd love to get myself a pair but I want to know if they're great first. Any other recommendation? Thanks!

I wear normal earplugs (Howard Leight Laser Lites) and then a Sena in my helmet.

I use cheap earplugs and just sing "I Will Always Love You" by Whitney Houston.

https://www.s1000rrforum.com/forum/s...n-earbuds.html this appears to be spam, or at least the same user is posting it to a bunch of different motorcycle forums

I've been using an effective set-up for some years now on both of my bikes-

A "Sandisk" MP3 player, with some "Klipsch" earbuds. The Mp3 is on a simple handlebar mount that I fabbed-up. Heavy Velcro on the back of the unit matches some on the mount, so I can pull it off for charging very easily.
The Klipsch earbuds work great for me; they'ree "noise cancelling" in the sense that they plug-in snugly.. and don't stick-out far enough to have the helmet jam them into your ears too far. The sound is great at all speeds. I ride around with an extra MP3 unit on longer trips, with a different genre of music, as a back-up. Usually I get a full day 8-10 hours out of a charge.

I used to use ear phones and have now switched to standard ear plugs and helmet speakers. I like this a lot more.

Well, it's 2020 now, LOL!

On the "true wireless" (no wires at all) side, I've been tempted to try some of the TaoTronics, SoundPeats or Dudios in-ear models just for fun. All 3 "brands" are pretty much just rebrands of the same core products, but they do get consistently good reviews for above average sound quality and the price is tough to beat. Not sure how well they stay in place when donning a helmet, but some of the newer models are fairly compact.

If you don't need "true wireless" and are willing to put up with a wire going around the back of your neck, there are lots of options sized more like traditional earbuds. I don't have any recommendations there, however.
