You already cant hear what's going on around you with those stupid helmets isolating you from your surroundings, now you're going to make damn sure you can't hear shit going on in your environment by blasting music in your bubbles?
True story. Last year some kid on his rice burner caused a wreck involving emergency vehicles. Said he didn't hear the sirens on his ass because of his helmet and the music he was blasting in it. He got a huge ticket. Actually several tickets.
My pipes play all the music I need to hear.

For sure. Around 6K it sounds like the ELO.

I normally wear earplugs inside my full face helmet. I can hear music in speakers right next to my ears and can still hear your pipes, sirens etc. I still have most of my hearing despite years of occupational noise and I try to keep it.
