What is a Sharon Style handlebar? I've searched a little (briefly) but haven't found what that is

I can hear sirens, car horns, and the motor running. The advantage of "noise canceling" earbuds is they lower the decibel limit of constant noise ...which in the bike is mostly wind noise. By doing this, you don't have to turn up the volume of your music to overcome that noise, so the total decibels hitting your ears is actually less than just blasting some in helmet speakers.
I usually turn the music off on short trips or when in heavy traffic. But if going on a long trip on the highway or a long cruise on an empty country road, I always either wear ear plugs to cut outside noise or wear the tiny earbuds to listen to some music.
As I've already suffered some hearing loss for failing to do this for most of the years I've rode a bike.

I myself wish I could find a system that I was comfortable with and stayed away from the ear buds for just that reason. Not sure what the answer is right now.

Doesn't matter if it's your phone, a radio, MP3 player or even a CD player...they use little power....it's the amplifier for the speakers to listen to them that uses the power. Louder you play it the more power you are using.
I solved this by wearing headphones (noise canceling ear buds) ...But having external speakers you can hear over motor and wind noise at speed will use more power...especially if you don't have a windscreen or fairing.
As for handlebars, you can pretty much mount any shape you like as long as they don't hit the tank when turned full left or right. Taller bars may need longer cables...shorter ones usually just require re-routing the stock ones.
