I bought it to try Nolan. I like the flip up concept.
I flip it up on the slower side streets... Or pulling into a gas station.
Bluetooth? No way. As a matter of fact I think it should be illegal in helmets.
Noise? No worse than any other I've used.
I use Howard Leight Foam Ear Plugs. Can't ride w/ out them now.
I tried my iPod again on my hour+ commute home... Ugh. Can't do it.
Part of my reason to ride is to get away from that stuff.
Nolan... Very comfortable. Great buckle system too.
