Headset for Nolan N104 EVO

Post by shadowf1 » Fri May 19, 2017 10:27 am



I recently purchased a new Nolan N104 EVO helmet. So far I think its a great helmet and its very comfortable.
When I went to swap out my J & M headset from my old HJC I found it was not compatible with the EVO.
I called J & M and the try to sell me a headset specifically designed for this model. The catch is they would only sell to me if I shipped them the helmet and paid them $60 over the extremely high purchase price of $200. Add shipping and that's more than I paid for the helmet.
My question is has anyone else run into this problem and found a more cost effective solution?
I have had very little experience with other manufacturers products to date.
It's going to be used on a bone stock GL1500 intercom / CB system.

Thank you.

Very unusual for J&M to not want to sell you the headset and ship it to you for installation! I have bought many kits over the years. Yes, they do a great job of installations but I have never heard of it being mandatory. You might also contact Sierra Electronics as they sell and install J&M products. As well as Overbys Sound.

Actually the J&M website has a section on authorized dealers so you can pick one closest to you!

If you have some soldering experience you can build your own headset.

You will need 3m (10feet) 5pin DIN cable, cut in half for driver and the passenger

4 x 32ohm 4cm diameter, 5mm thickness earphones
2 x 8ohm 2.6cm diameter, 5mm thickness earphones to be used as dynamic microphones.




Then solder the wires according to the picture below.

Microphone is actually a speakerphone, shown in the previous post. 2.6cm in dia will fit in front of your mouth like below. Note that it is covered with fabric. More beautiful than those mics sold, I think.
