I had a ipod nano / speaker set up before that worked real well.

Those are some really nice systems.

I just have some skullcandy headphones hooked into my phone, streaming music off my home PC with audiogalaxy. No mic (or easy control system) so I can't use my phone. Not that I'd really want to...

I only use skull candy headphones. They give me music and also act as ear plugs to tone down the wind noise.

I own four pair of in-ear headphones. I have tried all 4 under my helmet and believe it or not, the cheapest set performs the best.

Amazon.com: MEElectronics M6-CL Sport Sound-Isolating In-Ear Headphones for iPod, iPhone, MP3/CD/DVD Players (Clear): Electronics

These fit deep into my ear and block out ALL noise. They also are flush with the side of my head, so putting my helmet on does not dislodge them. Nothing worse than trying to sneak a finger in between your helmet and your head to adjust your earbuds!

I use them with an iPod touch, and with the volume at about 60% it drowns out entirely any noise from my baffless exhaust which is EAR BLEEDING loud with them in! I honestly cannot say enough good things about these earphones for this application.

If you want good cheap all around earphone the best bang for thw buck I have found are the Altec Lansing UHP-336 which I paid $35 for but they are $50 now. I would gladly pay the $50 if I had to replace them.

My setup: Bluetooth 2.0 transmitter that plugs into my ipod's dock connector, a bluetooth 2.0 receiver (Bluetooth less than v2 sucks for music), a Fiio E5 headphone amp and Tork X-Pro helmet speakers. Just waiting impatiently for the X-Pros to arrive.
