Helmet Sound System

Postby kerrsys » Thu Sep 08, 2011 12:01 pm



Got a question: What is the best way to wire a full face helmet for sound. I'm a solo rider and mostly a lone wolf, so, ability to talk to someone via phone or headset is not what I'm interested in. However, I do love my music when I ride.

I have added the IPOD unit that can be controlled via the CD control from the Wing.

What do I need to purchase so that I can get sound to the helmet and how do I best connect to the Wing's sound system?

I know I'm a knuckle-head, with this question, but, I'm not an electronics guy. Thanks for your ideas / solutions!!

As stated, the J&M headset is a good solution, a little expensive but they seem to work well on wings..

Thanks for the J&M advice.

Any thoughts on wireless set-ups?

What's needed to make them work, well?

I bought a bluetooth earbud headset at Target for $55.earbuds are clear and can pause the ipod music.
