With the acoustics of a helmet and the wind, I have found that the positioning of the speakers in the helmet so they are directly opposite your ear holes is more important than the quality of the speakers themselves. I use the Baehr supplied speakers with my Baehr Verso XL in a Shoei X11 helmet. The only better sound I have gotten is with a pair of in ear custom molded earplug speakers that I had made at the CCR Rally in Mo. last year. They are awesome, but I don't really llke using them unless I am looking at a multi-hour ride to make it worth putting in the plugs as they fit real tight. With them in, I can (and must) turn down the volume of all audio sources or risk deafness.
