I don't seethe earbuds I bought, but these look similar.

The JVC earbuds I have cost about the same and do a great job...and are not expensive. They also do something others don't necessarily do...they isolate the noise transfer you get if the cord is touched.

This is a personal thing, but I am not convinced pricier alternatives are better.

The wind noise sound level can be very loud while riding even on a fully faired bike, but a naked bike is even worse.

I used to use earplugs, all the time and sometimes still do.

Another Big help, to reduce wind noise is to use a Madstad wind shield, as it smooths out wind noise and smooths the air stream behind it, it provides Clean smooth air, better than any other windshield i have tried, as they are deigned different.

I have a new sony walkman, they re very compact, with the right head set they sound great and get rid of most of that wind noise

I can tell you they don't come with speakers. I've removed that panel and there's a cover screwed in under the grills. Looks almost looks like it could handle speakers - but they'd be fairly small.

I agree that ear-buds are not a good idea - since you won't be able to hear anything. But having a bit of sound from the speakers would be nice for a slower quiet ride and would be safer than ear-buds.

Thought a good helmet isolates the wind noise?

to a degree, but not completely

If you expect the helmet (any helmet) to eliminate wind noise you are wishing on a star

I believe in using earplugs, no matter what helmet.

There's no speakers there. However, if you remove those panels, underneath them are trays molded to fit cylinder/oblong shaped speakers in them. My thought is Honda may have been in the works for speakers, but they never actually put them into production at least for the US, but maybe in some other countries?!?!?! The CTX1300 deluxe has them. I use a bilt sena techno 2.0 helmet that I listen to music or talk to my wife with.
