Best Headphones for Helmet Wearers

Commute times tend to be highly productive. From learning through the latest podcasts to relaxing with a fun playlist (mine’s the Apple Music Favourites Mix, what’s yours?), we understand the need for headphones.

A quick conversation with our Headphone Gurus revealed that when deciding on a headphone, using it with a helmet is an important criteria for some. Why? Simply because not every headphone can fit under a helmet. That’s why this guide has listed the best headphones for helmets.

Pro Tip: Don’t play music too loud. You need to be able to hear oncoming traffic to travel safely.
