Looking to mount some speakers in my helmets for some off road riding music, any suggestions? Headphones, ear plugs, etc. arent cutting it.
I use the in-the-ear type's w/ intergral ear plug. The Sony's, Koss or ER-6's will stay in place. They stay better than the typical in-the-ear types, but still fall out if you bump them just right. I wear mine with an Arai RX7RR4 with out any issues of them hitting the sides.Novadesigns said:I was considering some Er-6s for my iPod. I was wondering though, won't they stick out a bit too much to get a helmet on? Mine's pretty tight. I couldn't keep the iPod earbuds in my ears and get the helmet on.

Yup! I agree. WIth the mini-blasters I had to run the volume up around 7~9 on the unit (out of 10). Now with the Sony's I only run around 2 or 3 at most!eeeeek said:From my experience, I actually hear more of the noises I need to with the in ear plugs/phones. They cancel out the wind noise and I can play the music at low levels. I can hear car horns, sirens, etc. muc better than with no speakers or earplugs. This works much bettter than speakers in the helmet.
