wanted to give an update, cheap little dude still works great, have made in helmet phone calls (pulling over into a parking lot with helmet on, and people hear me and i hear them just fine even with the face mask open (kind of surprised me.). I've been told just sounds like you are outside.
again for 15 bucks! I still hear my music at 75-80 no problems but it's def much softer, i think thats more of a helmet issue. And with my apple watch (still don't have a phone mount of any kind, so jacket pocket it goes) i can easily control the audio, selections etc at stops, lights etc. Again only annoyance, when you take the helmet off it will try to come out of your ear and drop to the ground.
Just wanted to give an update.
I looked at a lot of the Sena units, but didn't want something that would attach to the helmet so its always portable, and didn't think it was worth the price for what i wanted which was just something to hear nav and music, and I use the waze app (if you don't you should, community updated gps nav, and hazard.) for traffic updates, hazards on the roads, police reported etc. Amazing app if people use it where you live.
