I'm looking for a good pair of earbuds that will work under my motorcycle helmet. Do you guys think these would possibly work? I mainly want something that won't fall out and will keep out the road noise.
It's 10 bucks dawg, but it would probably have average (at best) noise isolation. Until product releases, none of us know, but it makes no sense how 10 bucks wouldn't make it worth the try.
You can add some foam tips after the fact (Comply or similar) to increase isolation. Ironically the tips would cost nearly as much as the headphones :p
Thats probably what I'll end up doing. The thing is most headphones stick out just enough to catch on the helmet and pull themselves out of your ears. These look really low profile. I'm going to pick up a pair or two and probably some foam tips.
You should check out the Massdrop EDC NuForces. They're really low profile in my ears and sit entirely flush. YMMV though, depending on your ears. I will say that the sound is great, and with Comply tips, they block out a lot of ambient noise. They come with isolating noise tips as well, so you wouldn't have to invest in Comply if you didn't want to.
It's a $50 gamble vs a $10 one though, as to if they'll work for you. But they're amazing headphones for that price to have around in any case.
I found a cheap pair of those on an auction and picked them up. If they work thanks! if not I go back to plan A.
Hey good luck on them working! Let me know if they pan out so I can give the suggestion with more confidence next time if anyone happens to ask!
I took an hour ride with them last night (in the rain) and they never came out of my ears. Not sure about reliability yet but they seem good. My only complaint was the foam tips took out TOO much sound because they sit so deep in my ears. I literately couldn't hear a single thing. I think ill try the rubber ones for my next ride.
