That's what I do also. I will not spend $100.00 on so stupid noise canceling earplugs. I bought the koss plug. Took the black plugs off like you did, and bought a box of 100 foam earplugs from the hardware store. Then stick a chopstick through the center. Ha ha ha Yes I am a cheap azz bastard!!!!!!I ride with them all the time. I picked up a set of the Koss earplug type earbuds, took the shitty black plugs they came with off and drilled a small set in a pair of "foamie" earplugs and use those instead. Works like a champ...I can play the music low and still hear it and the foamies do a good job on the excess wind noise in my helmet but and I can still hear the road/engine enough that I feel im safe.....
I don't know exactly. They went last year and i'm going with them this year... I will get the info and post it for ya.Where is that? LoL I live in maryland and dont know
I would consider the chatterbox if my group would buy them also. I doubt that they will tho. Thats why I use my iPod. BTW, How much was the chatterbox? Where did you get it from?I use an HJC chatterbox. I can talk to my buds that i ride with, and I can talk on the phone or use and mp3 player, with speakers built right into the helmet (although you have to install them). No headphones to deal with, and the sound is way better. Its meant for HJC helmets but will work with any helmet. I have it on my Shoei.
