Tried posting this in the product review section but apparently did not have privileges. I've had the problem that all earphones hurt like buggery under my helmet (that's if i've managed to keep them in place after i've put the lid on) So I picked up a pair of these http://cgi.ebay.com.au/Motorcycle-H...orcycle_Parts_Accessories&hash=item4aa496d6a4 Theres a ton of sellers in china flogging them off for as little as 4 dollars (including postage!) So i mounted them inside my helmet, and it hurt like hell and the things kept shifting everywhere. I guess my helmet fits very snug (as they should?) I've resorted to stripping the headphones down to the speaker unit and wiring. With a bit of craftiness I've managed to insert them inside the foam of my cheekpads pretty much bang on where my ears are AND tuck the wiring away neatly such that i have only one cord coming out of the right side. Reaches nicely into my jacket pocket and lets me listen to my ipod/gps. Comfort? Feels like nothing is there (except a helmet) Sound quality? GOOD! - obviously not noise reducing stuff that the pro's use, but I was pleasantly surprised by the quality I got from these cheapies. There was no distortion/crackling, and the volume was just right - enough for me to enjoy my music but still able to hear what's going on around me. The only problem I can forsee is that the wiring of these el cheapo headphones have a tendency to fray and leave you with sound coming from one side only. Hasn't happened yet though. For 5 bucks and abit of sticky tape, I think I win.
