Also don't forget - there is SIGNIFICANT utility in having a helmet with speakers that you can pair up with your phone or GPS, to receive the verbal instructions on where you need to go. With this arrangement, you don't even need to look at the GPS very much - mostly just for confirmation that you are on the right track, when you're able. Getting the instructions in your helmet really adds a new dimension when riding bike - far more than the do for you when in a car...IMHO.

In France the geniuses in legislation have banned in-ear headphones for all drivers and riders, so there you have to keep a keen eye on the GPS to get the instructions in time - that is if you intend to follow the stupid legislation.

My general feeling toward the law is that it is neither written by people like me, nor for the benefit of people like me, and I am free to ignore it whenever I find it convenient - just like the government does.

I utilize my Apple Watch for navigation allowing me to keep my eyes on the road.

Apple Watch will let you know when to turn with haptic feedback: taps. “A steady series of 12 taps means turn right at the intersection you’re approaching; three pairs of two taps means turn left,” says the Apple Watch user manual.

In-ear headphones are illegal in every State in the US
on a motorcycle...& even on a bicycle in most areas...
helmet speakers ARE legal in every State.
Of course, helmet speakers don't sound like BOSE
earphones in a studio, because we're NOT in a studio.
But, good helmet speakers are a much more convenient
way to get sounds you want, right into your ear, & still
be able to hear other sounds around you.

It is well with my soul.

I hear what I need to hear from the outside world perfectly well while listening to audio books through my in-ear earphones, which also cancel out the noise from wind turbulence.
Are earbuds also illegal in the USA states which prohibit in-ear earphones?

Earbuds & in-ear earphones are the same thing.
As long as you only use a single earbud/earphone.
you're OK...you just cannot have earbuds in both
ears at the same time.
This is why Honda Goldwings have helmet speakers.

It is well with my soul.

Earbuds and earphones are not the same.

Earphones penetrate the ear canal. Earbuds ( ala Apple stock ones ) do not.
Both supply sound, earphones are very different.

Exactly....you need to attenuate outside sounds ....mainly wind noise....it does not mean you cannot hear other outside sounds. Your ears shut down if they are overloaded by wind noise and regain sensitivity when it's quieted by attenuating earphones or earplugs.

Earbuds do not attenuate as they do not seal to the ear canal - something required for both good sound and ear protection.
If you listen to loud music then that drowns outside sounds ....no different than in a car.

Some of these people making stupid laws should really get some physics/audio lessons.

In helmet speakers do nothing for protecting your hearing, are often shrill and lousy on music.
With the SENA 20s now allowing plug in earphones helmet speakers are a complete was of time.
I used to use them in addition to the earphones when I had no choice.

You can have a normal conversation with attentuating earphones tho you won't hear lw voices or whispers., just as you could not if you were further away.....that is exactly the principal.

I use well fitting earbuds
They cut out some of the helmet noise and my gps doesn't have to be damagingly loud to be audible.

2 birds with one stone.

Most of the time I'm not using my gps so its earplugs to protect my lug holes.

I've had helmet speakers in the past but find they have to louder than wind/traffic noise to be heard. Not good for your ears.

I believe that you mis-read my response.....
Earbuds & In-EAR earphones are the same thing....
just depends what part of the country you are from.
( isn't the English language wonderful??)
Both are held in place by fitting them into the ear canal.
Earphones/headphones usually have a headband, or
hang on the outside of the ear with some kind of clip,
not at all practical when wearing a helmet.
Many countries have the same problem, with people
elected to office, with no expert qualifications in any
field....but they make laws for us...& even with 'good'
intentions, they really screw things up. Now it is twice
as hard to get the law changed, than it was to get it
passed in the first place.

It is well with my soul.
