    So far all the in ear earphones that I've tried just don't stay in place. Basically they all just fall out. But I dunno, I haven't tried more than about half a dozen brands so maybe there's a size and/or shape that could work but I'm not so sure.....
    The ear canal earphones usually come with several different sizes of tips so you can find the right size for your ears. Some also come with both the rubber style and the foam style tips.

    You need to put them in like you would insert earplugs. You need them inserted properly and with a good seal to get the right sound from them. Here's a guide from HeadRoom on How to Insert Ear Canal Headphones.

    Try the JVC Marshmallows or the next model up if you're willing to spend $10 more. They're better than any ear bud. Price is reasonable at $20 for the Marshmallows and $30 for the next model up. Sound quality is OK which is better than any ear bud. You can get the Marshmallows at most Wal-Marts, but Wal-Mart doesn't carry the next model up. The HA-FX55 gets you better bass and better quality sound.

    Do you have hearing aids that prevent you from using ear buds or in-ear earphones? Or do they just not fit your ears?

    The in-ear earphones aren't good for use while doing things like walking, jogging, or riding a bike or unicycle. They block too much of the outside sounds which is dangerous to yourself and others around you. Soundwise though, in-ear-canal earphones are the way to go for portable use. Good sound. Good music.

    I was hoping the speakers faced outward. Just think, like a ghetto blaster on your head.

    It can get a bit jammed up with over the ear type headphones under a helmet so I thought speakers built into the helmet might turn out to be a good idea.

    I just listen to my shure earbuds while I skate/ uni. I don't understand the need for a whole new helmet.

    The pictures on the site show a fly lead coming out of the helmet that plugs straight in to your music machine.

    Yeah true, I think I will take my ipod down to the bike shop and try it out with the helmet.
