What helmet is it and how do you like it? I'm looking into getting one of those as well.

The December copy of Transworld has a whole article on various audio helmets, some using wires, some bluetooth etc.

I like this one if I was going to buy a helmet

Forget wires and forget bluetooth (bluetooth connection sometimes messes up and you gotta pull out your phone again)

FZ-5588 1GB USB MP3 Player Headset FZ-5588 FZ-5588

This 1 gig mp3 player is all you need if you don't wear a helmet. Behind the head style, NO wires, easy to pause to talk up the lift, Long play time, holds around 300 songs, oh and it's 20$. I get mine tomorrow. I'll let you know how good it sounds.

I can't see those staying on you ears to well even in the least of bumpy conditions. Also, have fun ziping you collar up all the way on cold days.

Sorry for the late reply but for what it's worth the helmet is a Giro Fuse with music and telephone capability. Sounds good enough and my ears aren't sore at the end of the day from my ear buds pushing on my ears.

I just received my mp3 headphones today. For anyone interested they wrap around the lower part your neck very snug. Zipping up your jacket all the way does not effect them in any way. They also could not fall off if you wanted them to. You would have to land inverted to even have a chance. Just FYI

Do they have the little clips that go over top of your ears to keep them in place?
