2013 Street Glide - Helmet Headphones

Got a new Street Glide and want to be able to use earphones in my helmet. Street Glide is not equipped with a headphone jack like most of the other touring models and really didn't want to spend the kind of money that HD wants for their kit. Anyone have any recommendations on best way to go.

Cheap solution is a bluetooth headset with a smartphone or iPod.

You can also send your radio here and tell them you want the headphone output installed. Looks like a $105 job, but you can probably kiss your radio warranty goodbye.
