It's really a pain to stop, dig my phone out, and try to answer it before it goes to voicemail. Just pushing a button on the earbud will answer, so that will be a lot easier. However, my fear is the earbud falling out and getting lost while riding. It does stay in my ear OK, and I've used it while driving, but I suspect my ear will get sweaty while riding during warm weather and it might slip out. I just can't wait for warmer weather to get back outside on my bike and try it out.
I was looking at Bluetooth earbuds but went with a bone conduction headset because I was also worried about loosing one or both of the earbuds. I have had wired earbuds fall out while riding. My main concern was the helmet strap catching one of the earbuds and pulling it out. And depending on where you are riding when one falls out, it's not like you can just stop and go look for it.
