Considering buying headset communications system, (hard wired into stock receptacles, not blue tooth). Are there any recommendations for good alternatives? Been looking at the J&M Elite, but it's pretty pricy with the Z-cords, (close to $500 for two sets).

Any good quality alternatives more reasonably priced?

Any reason you want to be connected by an umbilical cord to the mothership? I use the Cardo G4 and atop of not having to be wired in, you have great sound quality, noise reduction, versatility, long talk time, bluetooth, am/fm, listen to seperate Ipods/Mp3, and can talk to your passenger and other riders when riding or just walking around with helmets on. I know you wanted a cord, but after I got this, I don't see any advantages except if you forgot to charge up. Even then, a quick charge on the 12v may give you some respite and quiet for a while (Oops Honey, i forgot to charge it again....)

Thanks Will; You know you're making the choice more difficult. I thought I'd get the 'Elite' for myself and a cheaper model for my wife / passenger, (reasoning that I would use mine a lot more), but she wants the top of the line as well. I wonder if she would know the difference?

I got the bargain priced ones as well, they're fine by me. If I want better tunes on the scoot, I'll upgrade the stereo sometime in the future.

I'm waiting for my new goldwing to be shipped and am not familiar with the radio on them. I also have the Cardo, so will it sychronize with the radio already on the bike by bluetooth or are you referring to the am/fm built in the Cardo system?

Now I'm confused.

The Honda dealer showed me a nifty Honda headset for "only" $219. I take it that was per helmet?

I listen to books on my IPod in my truck, and was looking forward to doing the same on the Wing.

So I can buy a plug in headset to take advantage of the wiring that is already in place to listen to the IPod ...

Or I can get a blue tooth headset that will totally bypass the built in system. And still be able to hear the IPod.

Is that right?

What about connectivity for a smartphone?

Thanks,

-WM
