2003 1800 full face helmet headset

Post by loopy » Sat Dec 16, 2017 9:34 pm



Just recently purchased a 2003 1800 Wing.
Would love some recommendations on helmet headset and microphone to plug into the 5 pin plug to give me access to the sound system and also intercom. Site links would greatly help me please.

I don't wish a Bluetooth style.

This used to be considered the best wired setups:

But they are pricey. These guys are less expensive, so if you break one, it does not hurt so bad to replace. The sound is decent.

There are lots more, like Senna and the like, but they are more costly still, and mostly bluetooth and the like.

ummmmm, right here on his home page


If you can't find an answer or the information you need, please do the following: First, email us at support@edsets.com

If your situation is urgent, please call Ed at 937-271-4077 during "approximately normal" business hours. Ed lives on a cell phone and we don't pay a secretary or service to answer phones, because when you call you want to speak directly with someone that can answer any question imaginable, and that leaves me as the only qualified operator! Be patient, sometimes the phone stays hot all day . We can read and respond to English messages, but if you need to, send it in any language and we can translate it and get back to you.


Ed is a super wonderful guy, and he will respond to his emails in quick order.
I have worked with him before, once when Lopeha and I were enroute to Florida Keys, we both had issues with our headsets... at the time, we were due south of him down in Florida and Andy called Ed.... explained what had happened to us, that we were riding together, that I had health issues and we need to be in touch via the CB radio at all times.......

Ed asked if we would be able to make it up to a restaurant the next morning...
yup, we can, and did. he not only bought our breakfasts, he regaled us with his biography of RDD work for the government over the decades.... what a great guy.

then, he says, "let's go see what you guys have".

for Andy, his was a mess, Ed said "here, I'm going to install a brand new, our Warranty is lifetime, yours, not the equipment" wow!

for me, my problem was super simple, he had the trick, and we were ready to go.

My recommendation: EDSETS! In my opinion, way better than anything else out there. You get what you pay for, and EDSETS are worth every penny. Be sure you opt for the THUNDERCLAP speakers.
