Ultimate ears are great. Really comfortable all day and the sound is really good. They come with a 2 part cable so you can have a short run to your sena.

Been on the Ultimate Ears website and they look great but the £380 price tag is a little out of my reach.  :012:

I think you may have been looking at the wrong ones. There seems to be two ultimate ears.

I've just received some ultimate ear filter plugs  https://www.ultimateear.com/products/motorcyclist-filtered-ear-plugs for using with my Sena and in helmet speakers, worked OK for a 2000 mile trip but volume/wind noise was an issue at motorway speeds.  I tried some normal mushroom earphones as a comparison and the inner ear voice/music quality was superb compared to in helmet speakers but wind noise was much worse at lower speeds.

I'm going to try these next as i think they will be superb as they cut the wind noise but deliver the voice/music directly to ear.  Not sure what the difference with the more expensive ones is?

They are very comfortable compared to normal foam/neoprene plugs too - worth the money in my opinion.  Hope it helps as I deliberated for ages over cost v benefit!

I’ve been using these since March and really like them. 

Radians Custom Molded Earplugs on Amazon for $12

I’m also using a Sena 20s with a Shoei Neotech helmet.

I made my own using the Radians custom mold kit from Amazonand a pair of earbuds.  Works great with my Sena 20S.

This article explains how to do it.

These Panasonic earbuds are great quality and cheap, and they worked great with the DIY monitors.

Great feed back, cheers guys.  :031:

It's the bike show in November at the NEC and I'm sure I have seen at least one company there in the past doing fittings etc... I think I'll treat myself to an early Christmas present.  :152:
