Headphones?

Ok who's got what? I need them for multiuse obvious. Snowboarding, running and id prefer to be able to use them under my helmet instead of the ones i have in there. (fit in ear). I was looking at the bose ear buds.

I have both The Bose and The Bang & Olufsen - They both sound great and are worth the $$ - I use the B&O's for working out and the Bose for regular use - The B&O's will fit tight but doubtful for Helmet use - The Bose "rest" in your ear canal and sound wicked good

+1 on ER6s. Audiophile grade performance & good build quality.

Took some getting used to though. Had to stick with 'em a few trips before I felt they were comfortable. Might just be how they fit me though...

They also reduce the noise floor about 20db, which means you don't have to listen at high volumes.

they feel and act like a work ear plug that u roll up and put in your ear.

they're soft, block outside sound when off, and good sound quality. not too mention cheap. i'm on my second pair (lost my first, along with my mp3..grr) and last pair i picked up at fry's for 12bucks.

oh, and i do ride with them, and everyone i've ever recommended these to absolutely loves them now.

4-wheels may be a privilege, but 2-wheels are a passion.

Good luck. Earlier this summer, I tried a number of different ear phones including shures, er6i's, and a few other in ear types I can't recall. My issues with all were noise. None could block out enough as my ear plugs did. Also keeping them in place while sliding on the x11 was a challenge. Eventually I gave up and resorted back to my old pura-fit ear plugs. No music, but at least it's quiet.

I was looking for all of those - ethymotics, shure, westones - I have shallow ears and each one of these would stick out enough to make sliding helmet on and off a problem. Also the pressure from the helmet would make it unbearbale after less then an hour.

Finally I saw these ones http://cyclegadgets.com/Products/product.asp?Item=SPLUG

not cheap, but very well made - really - nothing sticks out from your ear, they use same drivers as ethymotics and very soft and isolating better than my foam earplugs!

I reccommend!

So wait do the er6i's stay in place? Mainly running and moving around a lot while working out? Because i had some sony headphones that i loved but they got lost. The only problem is they wouldn't go under a helmet. This time around I wanna get a set i can use there to. Plus if it doesnt cancel out all noise thats actually better. Because listening to music doing whatever I still like to have some idea of my surroundings. Especially on the bike. Thats one reason i like the headphones i have in there. Its loud enough to hear but not loud enough to stop me from hearing a car behind me or anything else i need to hear.

Plus i was checking the er6i's and i saw there is a B and C version?

It doesn't say on the etymotic website? Did you look? Who said they fall out? They come with 3 types of ear plug type inserts. 2 cone style and 1 foam style that you roll. They do NOT fall out.

I think it depends on your ear hole, how are you so sure they don't fall out? Maybe with your ears, but someone else might have a different story.

sorry rush post
google custom fitted tips or westone custom tips

the same tips should work on some models (higher models) of Shure and Westone... (westone makes higher end shures.. or used to at least)

the custom tips are where an audiologist makes a mold of your ear and fits them to you... if i remember correctly it's in the 100-200 $ range depending on the audiologist and the tips and options you chose...

cant get a better custom fit than that

One trick I've had luck with is to route the earphone wire over your ear before you put the helmet on. For me, this has completely eliminated any shifting of the earplugs when the cables get tugged on.
