Default Blue tooth earbuds?

Anyone running Bluetooth earbuds as opposed to ear plugs? I figure if I'm going to stuff something in my ear with the purpose of noise cancelling I might as well get some good sounds, hear directions from GPS, etc.,

Main problem is finding something low profile enough to fit under the helmet and not cause pain to my ears. I'm not particularly a fan of ear buds (or anything stuffed in to my ear for that matter). My head and my ears are pretty sensitive to pressure of any sort. I've tried ear buds on a casual level for music, not riding, and always dislike how they make my ears feel after removal. Maybe a half dozen times? Over the course of several years? Just not something I'm fond of.

The reason I need to do "something" is that I'm tired of wind noise and need to do something about it. A new touring wind screen recently purchased does nothing to alleviate my issues so ear plugs are in order...or something along those lines.

Anyone?

I am not an iPhone user, but a lot of my co-workers are. A bunch of them have the new bluet tooth ear buds and love them. Not sure if you need a specific model of iPhone or not.

I just did a search for "iBuds" (seams reasonable right?)...Apple compatible buds that are wireless would never work with a helmet. I'm going to need something "wired" and low profile if anything...I have a hard enough time getting my helmet on as it is LOL! I think I'm asking the impossible at this point...but I will keep searching and see what's out there.

There was a thread a while back about how to mount an iPod inside a helmet. He had dismantled some headphones and mounted them inside using velcro, running wires under the liner.
