Kickstarter: Bipo Bicycle Helmet Earbud Mounts Stretch Sound Around Your Dome
Most of us are fans of riding with music, we’re just not fans of drowning out traffic and other ambient noise to the point where we don’t know what’s going on around us. We’ve tried a few other things (here and here), but we’re always on the lookout for a better mousetrap.
Now on Kickstarter, the Bipo is a bicycle helmet mount for the ubiquitous Apple earbuds. They’ll even work with the new Ear Pods. The design is simple – an alloy bit clamps to the stem of the ear bud and locks in a stretchy band. This pulls the buds bottom edge against the tapered vent in your helmet, holding it in place. Easy peasy.

What’s particularly appealing about the Bipo is that it adds minimal weight to the helmet, which means less neck strain and no weight shift as you tilt your head.
