This comfortable headset is designed to allow full communication function while wearing a 3/4 or full-face helmet. The stylish plug module clamps to the base of the helmet and positions the adjustable windsock-equipped boom microphone for the best sound quality.
- Great sounding foam-covered stereo earphones comfortably fit into ear pockets in the helmet, and the fine wires are easy to hide beneath the helmet liner for a clean installation
- Quick-disconnect plug allows you to step away from the motorcycle without removing the helmet, and the coiled cord permits freedom of movement in the saddle
- 7-pin DIN plug can be connected to the front and rear communications ports, allowing both rider and passenger access to the music, navigation, and voice communication features of your motorcycle
- Microphone has been optimized for superior clarity when connected to Harley-Davidson® intercom and Bike-to-Bike communications equipment
Boom! Full Helmet Music & Communications Headset is rated
Rated 5 out of
I attached the headset to my winter riding helmet and the flexibility and clarity are fantastic! I am now making the typical phone calls that I would with the blue tooth in the cage and able to stop by the store on the way home for the "honey do" list. Wind is no problem on my ultra. The clarity and total audio sound are great. I just had to figure out to disengage the CB when the phone is hooked up. the CB will bleed into calls or the music. Once the CB is off the system is clear and works great.

Good quality, but a bit out dated
I really like the material quality and finish on these head sets. The connector cables are thick and coiled. The speakers have good sound and power. However, I cannot help but wonder, why Harley-Davidson does not offer wireless connectivity as standard with Boom 6.5? Why do I need to pay $350+ just for connectivity option?
Aside from the fact that these are wired, which I can try to live with I suppose, I found the following to be a little more irritating;
- The speakers are too big. I had to carve my FXRG Dual-Homologated Helmet to fit these in. Is it too hard for Harley-Davidson to demand one standard from their suppliers?
- Although the sound is satisfying while listening to music, during the phone calls, sound quality is sub par.
- The integration of the mike is bad. It should be inside the helmet, so we could feed it through the cheek pad. No problem with 3/4 helmets, but with modular helmets, it is a pain to adjust the boom position every time and it looks ugly.
The fact that two units came with my Road Glide Ultra is the only reason I use them, otherwise I wouldn't be owning them.

Works well but the cord/plug design stinks
Recommended for light use with caveats--
The wife and I use this system when riding our 2012 Ultra Limited. We have covered about 70K over the years and the units have been good communication devices for intercom use which is our main requirement.
The speakers are two tinny for good bass response when listening to stereo/music but it is not horrible -- this is not something we often do anyway. The main issue with this setup is the cords. They have a tendency to get loose at the helmet plug side and develop poor connectivity or fall out. To a lesser degree they wear at the larger plug end as well. For me, the rider, I have gone through two (of the short) cords, not bad for the miles. For the passenger, we have gone through at least five cords (long and short). It seems that turning the head more than 25 degrees puts stress on the plug connectors.

Mine didnt last a year, the connection is very loose, sometimes works - usually doesn't. Little difficult losing connection when I turn my head ro check traffic, then jiggling the connector to regain signal.
