I can't speak for Ron, but I love listening to clear music while winding down the road in the middle of nowhere. I don't like earphones. My helmet already has speakers in it, but I only use those for intercom and phone. I worked in areas with very loud noises while I was in the USAF and wore earplugs nearly every day, all day for almost 11 years. I can't stand wearing plug-type headphones.
I'm not a poseur. I'm not in it for the "oh look at that kewl dood!" I could give a flying fat f#@k what anyone (other than the Mrs, of course) thinks about me. I don't listen to music loudly in towns and try to be respectful of others. That said, I'm not looking for something that'll make people's ears bleed, I want clarity and a touch more on the low side so the music doesn't sound tinny and washed out like it does now. Thus, I'm interested in what Mr. Miller finds. I think
his and my goals are similar.

I cited only two states because I didn't want to research all 50. Especially since I don't live in any of them.
But the direct quote from the Kalifornia Drivers License testing booklet (since I have one of those) is "most states". So I'm guessing that 26+ states have laws against headphones.
Also, I'm in a military family, they'll give me a ticket if my music it too loud on base and they'll also give me one if I wear headphones while driving due to both being against their regulations.
OK, threadjacking complete? Back to our regularly scheduled discussion about upgraded sound systems on the LT.
