    Looking everywhere but have not found what I need. Headset needs to be like a doctor's stethoscope...ear buds will fall out when I'm on my Harley. :(

    I feel like you'd have to turn the volume sky high to hear anything over the wind noise which might not be the best thing in the world for your ears. Do you go w/ a helmet or just eyewear?

    get an IEM,

    those wont fall off even if you jumping and running around.

    i suggest you get a Sennheiser IE8 or Westone 4

    Neither of those fit the criteria and I'm not giving that much for any headphone, even if it were for Jesus himself. :eek:

    Half-helmet worn at all times. Something like these might work:

    http://www.amazon.com/dp/B004XFSLH2/?tag=tec06d-20

    http://www.amazon.com/dp/B004477D0K/?tag=tec06d-20

    In the event they didnt work out for the bike I would still use them otherwise and not have a small fortune tied up in them. :laugh: I have no clue as to the quality of either, but I would assume they would at least equal the cheap buds that came with the MP3 and that would be sufficient for me.

    There's no such thing as an "MP3 headphone". This myth is just marketing BS propagated by the manufacturers - headphones are all the same in the way they work. Same with speakers, by the way.

    The only thing you have to decide is if the particular model fits your price range, sound quality and functionality.

    +1 for full-time helmets! I'm sporting a full face arai profile for mine haha. of the three on the list I would scratch the sony's from it. That plastic bar near the buds looks like it would crush into your temple and cause cerebral hemorrhaging when you put a helmet on haha.

    I've not heard of maxwell, but it looks like either or those 2 models would work

    okay, get something like the Sennheiser CX200 or the Creative EP630
    both are quite cheap and sounds great
