Rated 5 out of 5 by JimmyT This product easy to install and well made.
We purchased these for our trip and we really like them. We like the large speakers which enabled us to hear each other better and to listen to the stereo. The headset was very easy to install on our HD modular helmets. The mic was easy to talk into and with the wind screen on the mic, it cut out background noise. Sometimes I rode with my helmet open and no wind noise was detected.
If you are not use to using a cable, it takes a little getting use to. Some lessons learned. It will remind you real quick that you are still hooked to the bike. (only happened once). Also, make sure you put the cable into the helmet when you place your helmet on the bike. Second lesson learned, I melted some of the insulation from the cable, still worked just fine, just feels funny when you plug the cable into the plug, good reminder for me when I get off the bike to take care of the cable. (only happened once).
For us, this is a great product and would recommend this to anyone who wants to talk with your rider, listen to music and you can even talk on the CB. It is well made and easy to install.
We will be using this for years to come.

my set came with the purchase of our Trike. We purchased a set for the wife's helmet and it worked ok but the wind cut out the music a lot. I found out how to adjust the VOX for the communication system and it works great. Men, read the instructions first, it really helps. You won't get your man card taken away.

I got one these with my Ultra Limited in 2012. Now 4 years later, I still use them when riding with friends that have CB and on PGR missions. I have had no problems with my set except that the foam protecting the ear speakers has worn out and they fall off just about every time I take my helmet off. I am currently investigating if I can get just replacement foam for them. I have 50,000 miles on the bike now and the helmet that these are on gets used about 50% of the time.
I have bought a set for my wife when she rode with me and the comms between us on the bike were clear and concise. No issues with that. Now that she has her own bike, we use Scala Rider product to communicate between us when we ride. The set got put into one of the kid's helmet and now only 1 speaker works. I can't say why,maybe the kids are tougher on them then they should be. That is the only issue we have. We don't have any connection issues as other report.
One great thing about these units is that when I have one of my kids on the bike, they can plug in to the stereo and listen to whatever music they want without me having to listen to their crappy music. I can ride in peace with the wind in my hair and everyone is happy!

I cannot speak for others that have used the headset, but my experience has been good. The headset came with my 2014 Limited and I installed it in a 3/4 helmet (Harley). I had to modify the helmet to accommodate the speakers (no cutouts for speakers), once that was done the comfort and sound reproduction was much better than other wireless/Bluetooth systems I have used
Others have complained about the use of a wire and plug to connect the headset to the bike, and I agree that a wireless/Bluetooth capability would be nice. I have had no issues with the wire or plug in over 35,000 miles of use.
I am a year round rider, commuting to work, and riding on weekends. I have used the system for 99% of my riding and have experienced NO problems with the plug (into the bike or into the helmet). I am careful when plugging and unplugging it into the bike.
The performance of this headset FAR exceeds other solutions and I am VERY happy with it. I will be purchasing another to use with my modular helmet (I am going to remove the Bluetooth set currently in that helmet).
I hope this helps you in making the decision to use this product.
