I love listening to music when I ride but I found the in ear buds uncomfortable and distracting when they come out or the wire gets hitched on something (jacket, wind, odd pull). I bought a SENA 10 S which links to my iPhone and put in earplugs and the sound and overall ride are much more comfortable as far as music and road noise. If I turn the headset off I can still listen to my motorcycle without the "helmet wind". I wear a Shoei RF-1100.

Oh yea: "A person operating a motor vehicle or bicycle may not wear a headset covering, or earplugs in, both ears". So you can wear one but not two.

...what's up with those cagers wearing Apple earbuds while driving? I've seen quite a few of those lately.
