Helmet Headsets

Postby toanogreen » Mon Sep 15, 2014 11:10 am



I'm looking for a headset with thin speakers. The helmet I have doesn't have much room for standard speakers and me! I have used IMC motorcom headsets but they don't last. The wires are thin and pull apart after a few months use. I've repaired/replaced them three times since last year. I like J&M products, but they are too thick, even after removing the pads. I don't have to have something fancy, just something that works and will last.

When it comes to J&M, it depends on which headset you're looking at. I put their Elite headset in my current helmet, and the speakers in it are much thinner than their lower-end headset. The microphone is much smaller, too.

There are several suppliers of headsets:

J&M at: http://www.jmcorp.com/index.html
and a dealer that has worked with Venturers: Sierra Electronics
at: http://www.sierra-mc.com/

Both sites should show all their products.

Another headset supplier is Air Rider at: http://www.airrider.com/

A supplier that is popular with the Gold 'wing set but much cheaper than J&M is edsets and they can be located at: http://edsets.com/

A new one from Canada: http://www.imc-electronics.com/gotobuy.html

There is also one called Autocom and their website is: http://www.autocom.co.uk/

Another supplier that I am not sure if they do headsets but they do have equipment to aid the integration of stuff to your Wings is baehr Motorcycle Communications Systems. Their website is: www.baehrusa.com

Personally I prefer the J&M but only their top of the line equipment. It cost more initially but mine have lasted on the average more than 5 years with no problems. Some have lasted longer.
