Hi all :)
I'm looking for a pair of IEMs for general use but would like them also to be comfortable under a full face motorcycle helmet. I have a tiny head (size XXS Shoei helmet) and small ears, so size and comfort are really big things for me. I currently have some old Sony IEMs but they don't insert very far into my ear canal so the isolation is not very good. I realise that wearing noise isolating anything on a bike isn't the best idea in traffic, but this would be primarily for long trips where the fatigue from wind noise presents more of a problem (I would likely turn off the tunes in town anyway).
I would be using a Galaxy S4 for the music (also for GPS). I have a diverse taste in music, but do listen to a lot of electronica. I enjoy bass, but it's not the be all and end all for me. I'd prefer that they didn't cost too much over $100 as I'd be really annoyed if I messed them up!
If anyone has any ideas I'd love to read them. So far I've been looking at:
Rock-It Sounds R-50
Etymotic HF5 (seem like they might stick out a bit far to be comfy with a helmet?)
Klipsch Image X10 (a bit over budget but look comfortable)
