FWIW, I actually used something like that last year when I was actually 
riding my bike down the main straight of a local racetrack.

I had a speaker clipped onto my jacket, and the phone in my inside pocket, 
and even with a helmet on, I could hear the speaker talking to me as my 
friend directed me, so they do exist, but I'm not sure what the brand/make 
was, but pretty sure it was in fact Nokia.

Stay well
