I have seen a couple Bluetooth earbuds, but so far nothing that would fit inside a helmet.
So far, these are are the most motorcycle friendly wired earbuds I've seen: https://www.byeaos.com/

Let me check with my son tomorrow.
He wears a set of bluetooth earbuds under his helmet.
He listens to the music from his smartphone with them.
I'll find out the brand/model.

Chris has these.

He recommends not getting them as the black module with the control buttons weighs too much and causes that ear piece to fall out, while he is riding.
I'm sure that fitment from the earbud to the ear is critical for this to either work, or be a problem.

Thanks guys . I kept looking myself and found a communicator called bt-s2 Bluetooth intercom for $37. 50 . It is obviously a cheap Chinese knockoff of a sena s10. It came 2 days ago and all I have had a chance to do was try it out indoors . It is vey load (so far) , can pair up with only two other devices and can only talk to one at a time (no conferenceing) . Also picks up gps and music through MP3 or your phone , cell calls ,and has built in fm radio. It can be worn and used in the rain . All I really needed was gps and would have payed 37$ for just that so we'll see how long it last and how well it works. I got it off eBay. I hope someone else shows up with a Bluetooth communicator to test it. I only bought 1 since all I really wanted was gps and didn't see any sense in buying 2 just to find out they were no good.(free shipping) 🤞
