I'm trying a new type tho: Westone UM1's, they fit much more snugly and I think should work well tho I need some long days in the saddle to be sure.

And, back on track: I think the video review is about right. I did find, however, for sustained long distances, particularly with taller riders, the Honda seems to be bit more comfortable and you can't beat the range. It is more expensive tho you don't need too look to hard for a deal on a left over to fix that.
Thread hijack ON: I know several riders who use the ER6s and love 'em. Etymotic seems to make pretty good earbuds. I certainly enjoy mine.

If there is no one in sight in FRONT of you, and a line of assorted vehicles BEHIND you, it is NOT because they always wanted to be in a parade. Florida Lime.
