Audio For Helmets

For the few that wear helmets out there, what do you do about listening to music? I've been using regular headphones, but I like to be able to hear my surroundings. I've got a smith variant with the ear pads that can be unzipped to hold "speakers". It seems like te only thing out there that fits costs $200 and is made by shitcandy.

Here's what I'm looking for.
-easy drop in installation
-decent quality audio
-volume/skip buttons
-maybe Bluetooth?


Would I be better off ripping the drivers out of a decent pair of headphones and rigging something up to get them to fit?

Just got myself a RED Mutiny, and the flaps have just enough space for me to stuff it with Sony MDR-V150 phones. I'm willing to bet it'll sound better than RED's own headphone add-ons.

I'm gonna re-jack the helmet end short and use a regular extension to my jacket pocket. I might throw in a Belkin headphone remote. Originally for iPod Shuffle, but turns out it acts as Play/Pause and Volume for iPhones - Perfect.

Skullcandy makes a "speaker" set specifically made to go into the Smith helmet ear pieces. It wasn't very expensive and it works great.
