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.
After using my earbuds while spinning on my trainer and having one of them fall out, and while doing chores around the house while listening to music with my earbuds and one of them falling out again, I've determined that they are definitely not suitable for use while actually riding. I'm sure I'd lose one easily. I'd rather find one which attaches to my ear.
