Re: LG Bluetooth Headsets
I've heard of it being tried but never heard the final results, I doubt they were good. I use my LG HBS-750 around the house daily, but I admit I never tried it on the bike.
The earbuds do not block much, if any, ambient noise, so I wear ear muffs over them even when running a vacuum cleaner, to avoid needing excessive volume levels. Ditto for mowing grass, power tools in the shop, cranky wife, etc. I cannot think of any way to provide hearing protection while wearing these and a helmet.
The microphone is on the portion hanging around my neck, so it would either be under my jacket or out in the wind - outside my helmet in either case. In addition, without noise cancelling circuitry to remove ambient noise picked up by the microphone (like a Sena has) I doubt you could be understood by the other party on a phone call.
