do listen

while you ride? i do. of course finding the right kind of head phones that don't get caught in the helmet is hard to find.

I can't stand the fact that no headphones seem to work. I usually end up spending 15 minutes trying to gently get my helmet on to not disturb the headphones, only to have them pop out 15 minutes later

I only listen to podcasts and audio books when commuting on the superslab. On back roads and side roads, no way... I need all my focus to really RIDE.

I also have a Nolan N103 helmet with N-Com, so I've got both Bluetooth for my phone and a wired input for generic audio, which I use for my iPod. Both work lovely, but controlling my iPod has been a trip with gloves on...

i listen all the time, weather it's the city or hwy. the way i look at it, is like this. the radio doesn't distract me while i drive my car, so it's the same while i ride.
skullcandy has a set of head phones that wrap around your ear, and are made to fit inside of a helmet. i have use a set of bluetooth headphones once. works pretty good once you get them seated well.

I don't.. i'd think it'd be too loud, plus i don't like the idea of getting tangled up in wires while on a bike.

We started dating before she went off to school. In a car it usually takes 2 hours to get there, and a little under 1.5 hours on the bike

scalarider q2... + radio = no wires to tangle up.. while the sound quality isn't the best it also isn't blocking everything else out so you can still hear the road and other important sounds

Its not bad at all. Ipod in your pocket, run the headphone wires up your shirt and into your helmet. They can't get tangled...
