Molded Earbuds

Anyone have experience with, or recommendation for some reasonably priced ($125) earbuds that are comfortable enough for a solid days' ride? I use an iPhone with the Garmin GPS App connected to a DICE unit in so Music and GPS directions should sound "decent enough", while drowning out wind noise. Any favorable personal experience of what has worked for you, is appreciated. Thanks, Andy

Re: Molded Earbuds

I'm looking as well. Have a 2005LT I just picked up and need to find a couple of headsets for me and my significant pillion. Intercom is here and waiting for us to plug in. I use a couple of different helmets and like some in ear speakers. The custom molded ones are the way to go but bloody expensive. I'm all ears on this

Re: Molded Earbuds

My wife and I got ours from EAR, Inc. They have sales reps around the country IIRC.
$100 per pair, a few years ago. We are very satisfied, and we use them for anything requiring hearing protection: riding, chain saw, mowers, tractor, etc. No affiliation with the company, just satisfied customers.

They can install audio electronics in them, at additional cost. You get your choice of colors and patterns, too - in case that's important to you. My wife and I got colors different from each other so no issues with confusing them.
