Vidonn F1 from Amazon. They were rated in the top five on several YouTube videos I saw on bone conducting headset reviews. I don't have a large head and I initially had an issue with them sliding out of position since the band was not tight against my head. This was causing them to not perform very well as far as sound quality goes. I now have them angled over the rear of my head where they fit nicely and comfortably under my helmet. No movement and really nice sound quality. Much better than riding with one earbud so you can hear what's going on with the other.

Edit: I also found that putting the volume all the way up on the headset and adjusting it with the MP3 player works better than the other way around.
