Nolan MCS II Headset for N104

Post by brownlensman » Wed May 28, 2014 11:26 am

Having owned several J&M products I decided to try the Nolan MCS II for my new Nolan N104 helmet.

1) Installation is easier than any J&M product I've previously installed.
2) Sound quality is comparable to that of the J&M "P" or performance series.
3) Durability is much lower than J&M products. Explanation: The MCS II uses micro-usb connectors to interface between the helmet and the "lower" cable that connects to the bike. I found this to be much less rugged than either the "P" or "Z" series connectors J&M uses. Within a couple of weeks I had to replace the lower cable.

If you get one of these, use the DIN connector to make or break your connection between the helmet and the bike. It should last longer for you than using the micro-usb connector.

I haven't had any problems with my Nolan MCS system once I got over the initial problem of the phono plug to helmet connection. Nolan gave me the USB replacements under warranty. So far so good.
