Your best results for simply listening to music is going to be with in ear type buds.
The symax2 is a ridiculously loud helmet, I can't stand mine. The original symax was much quieter.
I went and bought a Nolan N90 to replace it, this is also much quieter (and I think even quieter than the original symax was)
I've got bluetooth running through clarion bluetooth adapter and then into my J&M as an aux in, and it's plenty loud with the same speakers I could hardly hear in the symax2 (and I'm now wearing earplugs, which I wasn't doing with the symax2).
My current speakers are just a set of skullcandy headphones that I cut up, put the speakers into the helmet behind the padding in the ear locations. J&M also makes some slim speakers which can be mounted in there that are very loud yet good quality, my buddy says his J&M slim speakers are much louder than my skullcandy ones.
It's a wired connection from the J&M to the helmet, though.
Before got the J&M and was using it for communications, I'd gotten a rechargable bluetooth headphone set from Best Buy, and I'd hacked that up and inserted those speakers (along with the charging system) into my helmet (with the speakers behind the padding in the earhole locations) and wired up some buttons on the outside to allow for changing tracks. Those worked great until I dropped the symax helmet, they weren't loud enough to be heard in the symax2. After that I ended up going the J&M route for communications reasons anyway.
