They have never come out when I have removed my helmet (I use a Shark Evoline).
I have also used an inline amplifier from Electric Avenues on my 2003 Valkyrie since about 2005 or so. It has a remote volume control and accepts multiple inputs. It works well. Not as good as the Autocom system but still good.
I also purchased their Pocket Amp 2 for my wife to use so she could control the volume to hear earphones independlty of the main control. We have not used it often but the audio is good.
In that light, what works best for us (wife and I) are Pinlock tuned ear plugs (yes, the anti-fog visor people make outstanding earplugs at a very reasonable price) that keep the wind noise down but allow engine noise, conversation, ambient noises (such as ambulance siren, brake noises etc) though with Cardo Freecom 4+ intercoms that come with 40 mm JBL speakers. The highest quality source would be FM radio (we don't listen to music while riding) that I tested and it comes through better than expected using these Pinlock plugs. Not audiophile quality, but probably the best I have heard after using a couple of Sena products in the past 5 years.
The plugs sell for AU$30 for a box with two sizes and the filter elements included, so it's not a huge amount of cash to throw away if they don't work for you. We have been through 4 or 5 other tuned earplugs before these, so you really have to try them for yourself and see if they work for you on your bike in your helmet.
Regarding amplifiers, the extra hassle of needing to plug that in line with the speakers, possibly power them on the go too, just add too much inconvenience, at least for me, so a reasonable quality intercom with loud enough output would be my priority.
Good luck with your search vanorak.
