Default Helmet Bluetooth headsets

Looking to get the above, I remember Shark did one that was decent for listening to music etc also but they have been discontinued. What do you guys recommend? Shark helmet, good for music, listening to GPS directions etc.

Max I want to spend is Ä150

Ive a pair of these, get em for next to nothing, have a very good range so you can pair it with another bike handy enough. Long battery in em, big button that works well with gloves, good sound quality and good mic quality

I had been looking at these alright but wondered about the sound quality. Cheers

Another vote for the Cardo Scala. I have the Q3 and they're absolutely brilliant. Have had it for 3 years on not a bother on it, use it everyday.

I used to listen to music on the bike but I'd only get into a few songs and I'd be home plus it made it more difficult to have an argument with drivers/cyclists while listening to the Prodigy

I have Sean 10R and find them excellent.
I wouldn’t buy the halfords one as its a rider to passenger only. Not bike to bike.

Only does half the job..

I have the Schuberth C4 with the built in bluetooth. FM radio included, and once you figure out the combination of button pressing, it will also play music from your mobile device.
I tend to use the radio when commuting, purely to explain why all the cages are stopped. Rest of the time, if I'm in the mood, spotify.
Because the road needs a soundtrack sometimes.

I don't listen to music when on the bike (except engine music) but curious if anyone use wireless earbuds that fit comfortably inside your lid, if comfortable they could replace ear plugs and you would be able to listen to traffic updates etc.
Being able to make/take a very quick call when/where safe to do so without having to stop to take the lid off would be handy as well

It'll depend on your helmet and your head I guess but I wouldn't be able to be comfortable at all with earbuds. Good thing about the headsets is that the speakers fit into the recess of the helmet and don't create any intrusion whatsoever.

I personally only listen to music in long trips. And not a bother with ear plus to block the wind noise. Don't do radio at all though, always my own music....
