I would recommend the earbuds that come with those comfort pads. Not only do they stay in your ears well, but also it doesn't leave your ears absolutely sore after you had them in your ears for four to five hours.

Currently I have Sony earbuds that I have been using just in my daily life that fits fine and are extremely comfortable to wear all day, also the price is not that bad either. I believe you are able to pick up a cheap pair for less than forty dollars.

Get some helmet speakers and insert them into your helmet earmuffs, I have Sure's and UltimateEar's and audio built into your helmet is 100x superior that something stuck in your ear canal while your riding.

The problem with that though is they will leak a lot. I had a helmet last season with those shitty skull candy speakers in them and it was always kind of annoying. Also getting any decent speaker that's small enough will probably run you more than $40

Yeah, IMO anyone using any type of headphones they've paid over $30 or so is crazy. They get beat to shit while riding. Wires yanked, getting wet, getting fell on, etc.

yea like what EXACTLY>?

I use speakers in my ear pads. The SC ones for Giro helms have done me the best so far, but have only had the RED ones (which sucked ass) to compare. The SC ones aren't great but they are 100x better than the REDs.

Been on the lookout for other options, do not know of this which you speak?

I've heard people say that about spending money on snowboarding gear! Speak for yourself, mine usually last years and I have no regrets about the purchases. I have pairs that have probably seen more time on a mountain than half this forum and look the same as the day I bought them. You spend your money as you see fit and I'll do so with mine. However, if you need advice on quality IEM's I'd be happy to help.

Yeah, the smokin buds by skull candy do kinda come out of your ear, which I own and hate that about it, but I noticed the cheaper Ink'd headphones they sell don't fall out your ear.

I just read a review on these and for 30$ you can't beat it. These will be the next ones I pick up. Nothing but great reviews for them. They come with a built in mic and the cable is a flat cable so they don't tangle.

These are what I used before I got a helmet. Awesome sound quality and the design makes it so they never come out of your ears as long as you have a beanie or helmet on...plus I think they were like $50 when I originally bought them a couple years ago so this is a deal.

Nope, I spend my money on quality cans. Cheap earbuds for riding.
