i use the creative muvo nomad(i dont know what order the name goes). the ear bud type headphones that came with it suck. so i got the sony earbud style, the ones with the small foam pieces. it actually sounds good, i guess the foam piece insulate it better. although i usually just use it for the twisties or for long road trips.

i use the sony headphones (they're blue w/ silver and the plastic piece wraps around your ear with the bud in the ear). These work great and don't hurt your ear. I can hear the music perfectly fine when traveling 100 mph with my BlueFlame. I wouldn't recommend having a speaker in the helmet, its hard to ehar with gap between your ear and the helmet catching all that wind.

I use either ear bud style or a pair of over the ear style (the ones that I have are quite slim and fit nice).

Creative Nomad, new ear buds, and I only use it for longer trips. Wind noise and my jardine make it hard to hear some of the songs but it doesn't bother me.

I use shitty ear buds that dont stay in well but I put a bandaid to stick them to my ear and it works like a champ.

well if you guys use earbuds, make sure you pull them out before you take your lid off.
i wish i could find a way to do that, kinda tight. when they do come out a bit and try to take off the helmet. it fookin hurts, feels like some stuck a screw driver in your ear and trying to lift you up. gotta try that band aid trick next time.
