Headphones to Ride With
I have been wearing the Icon 1's for years while riding because the just seemed to work. The Icon 2's I found were not very good at staying on my head while riding like the Icons 1's did. These Icon 3's are a perfect headphone for riding. A little bit tighter clamping force keeps them on your head even better, but some people might not like the tightness, so keep that in mind. The head band its self is much stronger and more durable giving you more confidence that these won't break in half when you eat it. A stickier rubber underneath keeps well on beanies, but I have noticed a bit of slip on my baseball hat. The new Mic 1 in the head phone seems to work great. I can use it with gloves on from the outside of my hood, so I don't have to unwrap everything. I know that the first batch of these had problems with the button not working in colder weather, but they have since fixed that. Great sound quality as well. The best over the ear headphones to ride with.
