Listen in the car all the time, but never on the bike. Not anti-music, just find there is enough to fill the senses and enjoy without it. Riding is my quiet time to enjoy without intrusions. For the same reason, when my wife rode with me, I wouldn't buy a comms set

I only listen to music if I'm just slabbing it on the highway (i.e. commuting). If I'm riding through the back twisties on the weekends, never.

Like Kiwi said, motorcycling is my peaceful time. I don't want to hear another humans voice until I park and take off my helmet. I wear earplugs because I know so many who gone deaf and spending my golden years with no hearing has got to be worse than dying.

Do you music listeners just put earphones in? Or are you using a BT headset? My Sena 20S has pretty poor audio quality and I've been looking at speaker replacements, but it looks like the Sena just can't output enough power to sound good.

I just got the 20S, part of my motivation was reviews saying it had "HD audio." Makes me wonder what the **** they've been listening to music with, soup cans? I ripped apart a set of Sony headphones and installed them instead, but I think you're right about the power. The new ones sound great at low volume, right **** with any kind of real draw. I tried plugging some ear buds, and they could handle higher volume, but even then, definite drop in quality.

That's too bad. One tip for you from my experience: it helps tremendously to keep my phone's bluetooth volume a couple notches below max. At max it sounds absolutely horrid, and only a little horrid at -2 clicks. Then just turn it up a bit on the Sena itself.
