Anyone use the inner ear type headphones? Any recommendations?

Never tried them. Probably have been improvements since I looked into them but seemed like it would be a hassle to put them in your ears then put on a tight fitting helmet

I use in ear ones have for years.  I will look up which ones I get but the latest ones I got from the states.  I used some others and got some of that goo and made some moulded ones.

I got Westone ones from states and sennheiser ones fromuk.  Westones are better but more expensive.  The states have special deals and ship quickly.  Some of the sennheiser ones have a volume control in the line which can be handy.

Just looked it up and got the Westone ones from earphonesolutions.com I have no affiliation just got good service.  Sennheiser from Amazon.  Mould stuff eBay I think.

Do these things use Bluetooth?  No interference when putting on helmet?

 no they are wired.  I have adapted the smh5 to accept Jack plug from the head phones.  They fit right inside the ear (earphonesolutions have pictures) and do not interfere with the helmet.  They come with different pieces to make them fit in the ear better.

When I imagine it I picture my old set up.  Earbuds to wires, wires to phone and phone in jacket pocket.  And that is what the earphones solutions.com site seems to show.  I'm not sure I understand how the smh5 works into the deal.  Why do you need the smh5 because if I understand correctly you have bypassed any need.

I have been using custom moulded ear pieces with sound input for a number of years.  At the moment I use it with an autocom system (zumo 660, mobile phone, CB radio, can do music) and plan to use them with the Sena SM10 using the helmet bracket that the ear pieces plug into.  The connection to the Trophy will be bluetooth.  I did not see the point of having ear plugs then having to crank up the helmet speakers to hear anything.  The ear pieces allow good sound quality at any speed with the lowest possible sound setting.  Balancing all the audio inputs to a single sound level is the trickiest bit.
