Hello, New to me 2014 GT. I'm interested in just listening to music when I ride and was wondering if any blue tooth ear buds would link up to the BMW blue tooth?

I have never listened to the BT music feed from the K. It's reputation is beyond poor. It's trash is my understanding. I have wired in-ear monitors I use that can be fed from my Cardo BT helmet receiver, but I typically just plug it into my phone which is mounted between the handlebars. For wireless listening, the Cardo speakers in my helmet work well. Best of luck finding what's best for you.

I simply use my Air Pods Pro, connected to my iPhone in my front pants pocket. The active noise cancellation on the Pros works great. I just pick a playlist, and go.

I run a Cardo PTB with Bose noise canceling ear buds. I clip the battery pack inside my jacket and use a cable extension to my helmet. It seems to do well. I need to do a long ride to test having buds in my ears for long periods of time. This setup allows me to use Nav, Music, and still use intercom while the noise canceling works well.

Thanks to everyone for your response. Looks like the Cardo way or my old iPod with wired earbuds.
