    Noise Cancelling Earbuds

    Hi everyone.
    I have been looking at different solutions to the wind noise issue. I have looked at different helmets and came close to buying a Schuberth. I spent an hour or two last weekend experimenting with spacers which was recommended in a pervious thread. It helped but things were still a bit noisey. I then read about noise cancelling earbuds and how great they were. Bose Quietcomfort 20 seemed to be the best so I purchased a pair. Expensive but absolutely brilliant!!!! Wind noise down to about 5%. Has anyone else resorted to noise cancelling technology?

    Hi,
    Not gone down the Bose route but I use these as they cut noise down and are bluetooth too.

    Found them to be very good.

    They look easier to get helmet over than the Bose.
    Is there a little clip for a beard or has the guy in the pic got a bit tangled up?.

    The mic piece is adjusted by sliding  (balancing the length) and then just lays on your chin/beard.

    Forgot to mention that I've not found a problem with them staying put getting the helmet on and off.

    I had an accident with my wallet the other week and bought a Scala Freecom 4 which I fitted to my Optimus SV tour flip front lid. I found that people could hear me ok but I couldn't hear them very well. After experimentation I found I had excessive wind noise. Then I tried the ear buds that came with my mobile a Samsung Galaxy A8 - wow what a difference. I can hear perfectly at 70mph and be heard by the other person clearly. No issues getting the lid on and off and the ear buds stay in place just fine. Its transformed my ride - should have got into this mode of riding ages ago!
