have tried several different earbuds for tunes while riding
the Mee M6 Pros were pretty good
decent isolation with the proper tips
loud enough to hear
but they were brutally uncomfortable on long days
and damn near removed a chuck of ear taking the helmet off last time
as I keep my phone in a front pocket, the lack of any control was a negative

Domio has been pushing their device here for a bit
recently they came out with a louder unit specifically for bikes
also have some pretty spiffy ear plugs that are supposed to work with the Domio unit

so I decided to give the system a try
comes with 2 mounting brackets that stick to the helmet
good thing there is an extra as the first attempt at mounting on top of helmet was a failure
although my Nolan doesn't look to be any rounder on top that other helmets
the radius was too sharp and the Domio device would not slide into the holder

went for LH mount after that and I guess the sides are flatter as it worked
would suggest Domio designs a bracket that can accommodate a curved surface
helmets generally tend to be curved things

device pairs to my phone without any issue, positive
has really nice, big and simple buttons that can be operated gloved, positive
sound is actually pretty nice, it does reverberate around inside the helmet, positive
the top mount would be better, sound volume is heavily biased to the left, negative

around town and up to 80 km/h the sound is plenty load enough and clear, nice
at highway speed the music is still listenable, but getting stepped on my wind noise, acceptable
this is bike dependent of course, system works much better on my Aprilia that has great aerodynamics
the old cruiser not so much, the screen on that thing is as sophisticated as a sheet of plywood

the ear plugs are of good quality and come in a neat SS capsule
they are very comfortable and I will use them on long trips
the claim of allowing music in and wind noise out is a stretch
and they don't, they can't, it's a frequency thing

so the verdict is, for ~ $200 the Domio speaker sys is worth it to me
will get much use out of it on long rides for tunes and audio books
but I still say they need to provide a better mount that allows for more curvature

the earplugs? nice quality and great little capsule
but for $30 ?....... they are a pass

I've been interested in the Domio Pro (with comm mic) for a while, but I really do wish I could see it in person at some degree. Spoke with someone on here a while back, and they never got back to me with an address or time of operation for their Toronto office. Busy I guess.
I really can't deal with wires and plastics inside my helmet, it fits too snug and previously created pressure points. Would side mount this as well, I feel like reaching fir the top of my helmet all the time would be off putting.
I do miss riding with tunes, especially on longer straighter boring roads.

Just ordered the Pro, can save over $100 right now with discounts and promo codes.

Apparently its even louder and has more battery life.

Can you not mount it on the back? It would suck with a passenger, but otherwise seems like it could be out of the way and similar in both ears.
