Tunes on a 950...suggestions?

Looking for a good cost effective way to get some music going on my 950. Was planning on putting on a windshield, but not fairing, in the near future.

Thinking maybe about mounting my iPod on the bars, but I didn't want a wire to earbuds through my helmet.

Open to any and all suggestions.

speakers

Some of the batwing fairing/windshields have built in speakers and amp.
there are some chrome speakers you can mount on the handle bars.

I do the same thing Bevo streaming 'Pandora'; it's fantastic. A buddy of mine uses a stereo bluetooth headset. Doesn't want to deal with wires.

sounds

I have been looking at Pyle 60, just want to know how it sounds first, I personally don't like ear pieces.

I have the Kuryakin Sounds of Chrome. If you don't mind the chrome speakers mounted on your handlebars, which I don't, it is a great system. Great sound too.

I have a helmet with speaker pockets. I got a pair of headphones that doesn't have a band, but just speakers that clipped onto my ears, and I put one in each pocket. The cord hangs out and I connect it to an ipod kept in my front pocket, or the pouch of the tank bra.

I bought a pretty cheap set of speakers and radio for mine last year. Will try to post the info for you. Works okay aup and I think i can hook an MP-3 player.
I believe it only cost about $100 for the weather tight speakers and radio. Chrome speakers are mounted on windshield- I have radio mounted in a handle bar bag- Power button and volume have a remote on bars- to change station i have to touch a button on the radio (no presets) it does seek. Okay power okay sound- bass could be better.
I'll try to post brand info- sorry i can't remember it.

Here's what I want to do.

Satellite radio - Siruis has some cheap ones with an a-la-cart plan ($6.99/mo).

Bluetooth transmitter that plugs into Radio

Bluetooth stereo headphones.

Don't want to mess with wires up through jacket.
