earbuds for christmas

Anybody using earbuds with a mic that handles noise in a full face helmet, and can answer calls with your gloves on?

I never liked ear buds with mics for riding, thr button usually gets pushed on my jacket with the wind or just malfunctions all together. Music would just cut out or phone wOuld turn on voice commands out of nowhere.

Get one without the mic/buttons or get an LG tone

people complain it's too noisy, they can't hear me well. i watch youtube videos with guys riding and talking clear as a bell?
want just earbuds for phone calls and hearing protection not bluetooth, Sena, bike to bike and so forth.

If you get one, just do an inline mic with no buttons. Nothing more annoying than the button getting pressed and you making a late night phone call on the freeway to a random number on your phone book without the ability of turning it off immediately. This is from experience

also fun is when expecting a call, and u feel phone vibrate, hammer stop, whip off gloves, pull out phone, flip visor, hit speaker say "hold on", peel off helmet, yank an ear plug, drop phone, pickup, say hello and they hang up.

I use these:

Amazon.com: Skullcandy S2TTDY033 Titan Headphones with Mic1 (Black) (Discontinued by Manufacturer): Electronics

If you position the mic close to your mouth, you can answer calls. I don't think there is much wind noise reduction for the mic, but good enough to say hang on and let me pull over. The earbuds are very comfortable with the helmet and the sound is incredible for music.

sounds good, i think Santa might bring me a new phone then i'll go from there. the audio quality of youtube rider video's is what gets me, are those mics exclusive to gopro and such, or was it just my one shitty pair of buds?
i've goggled all the custom fit and read earbud noise blocking and noise isolating reviews out the ying yang. gimme a noise blocking set of cheesy buds with a decent mic and a button that does'nt need a hair pin to operate, i'll send you's all a pair. like don't other people in noisy environments need to be hands free?

My bluetooth headset (scala Q2) is great for music and the mic is good enough that I can hold conversations while going 85 down the highway. When I'm on a bike with a windshield (i.e. once when I rode my dad's...lol) they can't even tell I'm on the bike... I think a bluetooth unit will probably be your best bet if mic quality is important.

appreciate that, scavenging a good mic then, and adapting it onto noise blocking buds with an inline weatherproof easy to operate button, which is what i figured anyway......i gonna make a fortune

I had a pair of these before 3M bought them, they were excellent in my application.
It was a WOOT deal before WOOT went to heck.
Anyway.....
We've all got different ears, no "one size fits all" when it comes to these -
These fit and stayed in my ears, and were close enough/tight enough of a fit for my helmet to slide over them, and they would still stay in place.
I've never tried the "Skull Screw" tips, and rumor is, these are not as good a quality as they once were.
