Just my opinion, take it for what is's worth. I was using the Edsets 3g headsets, and went with the Sena 20s and freewire setup. I can't be happier with my choice. the sound quality is much better. I wish I had made the change sooner. Others might have different experience, but this is mine.

I have the HJC 33 from Amazon

The seller installs the system in the helmet for you. Works ok, the right speaker volume level seems a bit low to me. but otherwise it works fine.

I'm looking at going wired with the "new" trike, especially since I found an interface for an iPod to the factory stereo (and we may go with a CB at some point) but the EdSets are pretty pricey - $235 each!

So... are they worth it?

I ended up buying new HJC IS 33 ii helmets with the j&m elite headsets. They sound great to me. I had sierra install an aux channel on my 1500 radio. Bought the mic signal splitter from edsets and an a/b switch along with some misc cables. I now can listen to my phone music in my ears as well as talk on the phone as well as switch to my wife's phone for music. I may split her microphone signal as well so that switching to her device will give her the ability to talk on her phone as well. I have a small fortune in the set up but it works well. I recently ordered a power noise filter from sierra to eliminate charging noise in the system as well. I like it!

Everyone has their own opinions on what is best for them. I personally have enjoyed my Edsets. I had the original Honda headphones and microphone and the quality was not really there. I replaced the cord 3 times in 2 years and one of the headphones went out. With the edsets I can hear my CB conversations perfectly. Communicating with my wife use to be strenuous- I was always asking her to repeat. With the edsets I hear her clearly and loud. So I think it was the right choice to make the purchase. I wanted integration with the bike- without worrying about batteries. The edset cord is a much higher quality than the original and it is a bit longer making it easier to get gas without taking off the helmet. I can reach the back trunk if I need too. When I play my stereo I leave the intercom on and the mic picks up the music so I hear it even better. So for me it was the right decision. Itís all about personal taste.

I have used J&M, both cheap ones and the higher priced ones, I really couldn't tell much difference. I THINK J&M makes the Honda ones anyway,

You MAY have just made a sale for EdSets. I have hearing damage and will not so much as pull out of the driveway without my Howard Leight Maxx earplugs in (I don't want to lose any more!!), so I have to crank my headset up to hear through the plugs.

We purchased a pair of Nolan N104 helmets with the JM headsets installed. They are a wired system and they work fantastic. we have XM installed on our bike which is a 2007 level 3. System works great on our bike.
