Listen to music, navigation, and maybe also block wind noise.
Riding is a great way to enjoy the sensation of the wind in your hair and on your skin—but no one likes listening to wind noise. Not only is it bad for your actual ability to hear and damaging to your ears, but it’s also just an unpleasant thing in general.
What’s a rider to do?
You could, of course, wear earplugs. It’s what I do on every ride, in fact, and it’s served me well so far in terms of not suffering serious hearing loss while riding. The thing is, in 2023, a lot of us also like to hear things like our GPS navigation of choice feeding directions into our ears, or even music or podcasts.
Pairing a set of earplugs up with a Bluetooth helmet communicator is a good choice (and it’s my preferred one, personally), but there are plenty of reasons that might not be a good option for you. For one thing, BT communications units are expensive. For another, BT comms units may not appeal very much if you don’t have other riding buddies who are also using compatible comms units. Maybe you just don’t like the idea of sticking strong adhesive to a helmet graphic you really like. (We totally get that one, by the way. No one wants to ruin their favorite lid.)
Isn’t there another way?
Of course, take a pair wireless earbuds or a collar clip on headphones with retractable cord.
One important consideration to keep in mind about earbuds is, why do you want to wear them? If you just want an inexpensive, comfortable way to listen to music and/or navigation while riding, that’s one thing. However, if you also want to protect your hearing, you’re going to want a pair with active noise cancellation. While prices on ANC earbuds have been getting better over time (as with a lot of tech), they’re still not going to be the cheapest ones you’ll find.
