Motocomm Thumper Enhanced-Bass Helmet Speakers
Works as designed
Other reviews provided a mix of responses. My experience with these speakers is not all that different. I generally wear ear plugs while riding. At full volume, i can hear my tunes even on the highway although just.
Overall these were a good purchase for the price point. They allow me to travel with my music at least in the background. They will not blow your ears and still allow you to hear what's going on around you.

Make sure you line them up with your ears when mounting.
For the price these are really good. The sound is good in my Scorpion EXO-500 helmet up to about 80 mph. The bass isn't great but it's livable. The big thing is to make sure they are lined up with your ear and don't just use the precut areas. I had to carve out a little bit in front of the holes Scorpion had precut as this would have put them behind my ears. I have used them with an older Ipod and my Galaxy S3.

Not loud enough
The sound is not loud enough even below 60mph I can barely hear my music.

Not the loudest
Installation was pretty simple in my Shoei RF 1100 only the speakers are slightly larger than the speaker ports on my helmet so it does add a little bulk to the ears. They come with velcro so you can adjust the way you need.
The volume is not that loud, but they still sound OK. They seem to handle bass pretty well. I used my phones EQ and itunes to increase the volume level. Not as loud as ear buds but at least I don't have to worry about them falling out of my ear.

Were not loud enough to be useful to me
Connected to Galaxy S3 - these were not loud enough to sound good at highway speeds riding my BMW K1200.
I bought klipsch noise blocking earbuds instead - those work well.

good for the price
The sound isn't the best out of the box but then again these aren't a set of expensive headphones. I was able to correct it with equalizer adjustments and they sound just fine now. I have a Shoei RF-1100 helmet which doesn't have a lot of wind noise and at 120km/hr on the highway they are still plenty loud. Now I can listen to the radio on my way to work or tunes on my weekend rides!
My biggest complaints are that I dont really care for the uneven left and right cable lengths, and I don't have enough room in my helmet to tuck in all the cabling before the "Y" part. It's a minor annoyance and obviously these were made to work with many helmets, might not be an issue with a different helmet.

work so much better than headphones. Comfy for long trips and loud enough to make it heard over my loud v twin. buy these and you will not be unhappy.
