    Kinda reminds me of someone I knew in my younger days. Haven't seen her since.

    I have a sena 20s that works great till about 50 mph. Did not seem to make a difference where I put the head phones.

    These head phones are meant to be worn under your helmet. Night and day difference. I have to turn down the volume.

    Yeah, I wouldn't really count on bike shorts to keep you comfortable on a motorcycle seat. They're really designed to add some cushion on a hard bicycle seat, where there's pressure mainly on two points.

    So if you're sitting on a seat that's actually trying to support your whole butt, then the bike short cushion will just push into your butt harder than the un-cushioned area.

    I don't get the single or dual driver. Does that mean the single is only a tweeter and the dual adds bass? or both on each option?

    I like this because where I get pain is the 4th position on my ischium bone left and right with little muscle or fat. Right where those yellow spots are.

    Did you get the dual or single driver. I am guessing after seeing some of the reviews and the web site that the dual is both tweeter and base and the single is just a tweeter? Let me know asap as I want to pull the trigger on purchase. At $129 for the single and $219 for the double I really makes a difference on purchasing, thanks

    Regardless of which you get, come back and start a thread on this unit. I have my Sena 10R or something like that which I have been using for a few years now. Its OK but sometimes I can't hear the music through the ear protection at highway speeds. For several years I used really cheap Phillips or Panasonic ear buds. They were the only ones that would fit right into my ear. The others I have tried, often quite expensive, hurt my ears after only an hour or so in the saddle. But the really cheap ones fit great. But I just don't like the wires hanging down. This could be a viable option for me.

    But you go out and spend the money first and let me know. I'm a cheap Scott!

    Finally installed today. They seem well made, will have a ride test tomorrow.
    No problem reading ESL instruction, there were no instructions.
    Youtube to the rescue. Don't think I could have got the job done without a helpful video.
