Not sure if ur looking exclusively for a dual ear setup, but when I'm riding with friends I use one of these so I can still hear stuff around me. The single ear bud has both L and R channels combined so u don't miss any stereo recorded stuff.

You can never go wrong with a pair of Skull Candys.

Surely you jest .

Due to the rising cost of ammo, do not expect a warning shot! Sorry for the inconvenience.

I used the Skullcandy Icon 2's one year and those were really nice. They are over the ear type, but are prettynice and also have a mic control so you can change the song without digging for your iPod. They are super flexible and water resistant. Although I often had to turn the volume up a bit when it was windy.
Another great in-ear pair are the 50/50's from Skullcandy. Thay also include the mic control.. Another is the Skullcandy Titan, BUT they don't have the mic :/

the headphones themselves arent going to break, what will go is the cord, you want something that has nylon sheathing

THERE ARE SPECIFIC REASONS AS TO WHY I AM MORE LOCAL THAN YOU

The $20 pair yes, but I have been using a higher end pair inside my motorcycle helmet for over a year with NO issues. Even the higher end pair was only like $50. Comfortable, cheap, and sound great.
