Question Helmet speakers

Anyone using helmet speakers? Any recommendations or opinions? I'm just looking for music, couldn't care less for phone, communication etc...

I have a set of iASUS Xsound 3's I got on Amazon. They were replacing a cheap set I got for 20 bucks that were horrible. The iASUS were 110 but worth every penny and they sound great. I was apprehensive because they were so much more than my previous set, but I'm glad I did it.

Are they Bluetooth ? Do you need a big goofy module to run them ?

I've always just hooked them straight to my iPhone and stream music or listen to my iPod. I've never used them any other way. You can hook them up to the Bluetooth intercom systems, I've never done it though.

Yeah, they plug in like headphones or earbuds. I found a review of them that might answer all your questions here

I use a set of Bluetooth earbuds

Plantronics Backbeat Go 2

These work pretty well for just music.

I use the Sena SMH-10..... or I did until I just got the new Sena 20S from Mike. Haven't installed it yet, but he assures me the audio is less tinny than the one I have... yup, all bluetooth. But works for me. And he was right... The speakers with the Sena 20S are much better.. A fuller sound with some bass.
