Looking into headsets. Actually, been thinking about them for years for on the sleds. I have never found a headset "specialist" who could answer the hard questions, like: What is involved in the install? Will they fit in any helmet? Do I use a push-to-talk switch, or are they voice activated? If a PTT, where is it mounted? How about for the passenger? How about talking to folks on other bikes? Etc. I recenty bought an HJC <?> full face helmet that is supposed to be bluetooth-headset ready. I am not as concerned with the cost as I am the ease of use and the quality of the unit. Suggestions and explanations thereof? Thanks!

Google "Chatter Box" and see what you think. If your bike already has an i/c system I'm pretty sold on J&M products.

Ya know, I think I invented headsets in bikes. When I took my then-girlfriend (now wife of 27 years) to Canada in 1980, I drilled out the helmet straps and bolts in a sabatoged Sony Walkman headset in each of our helments. Worked very well!

By the way, Boze makes a great headset for an airplane...not sure what the have in helmet size.

There is not a lot involved in installing a headset. Most helmets have removable liners and ear pieces that make it a snap.
There are different headset for different, open face, full face, modular, etc, there is a special one for my Nolan helmet. But a headset for a open face will fit all open face and the same for a full face.
On the gold Wing the intercom is voice activated, but you need a PTT switch to use the CB.
The Honda line CB's for the 1500's come with the PTT switch for the driver, and you can buy several different ones for the passenger
The 1800 Goldwing had the driver PTT switch installed from the factory and many different ones available for passenger, mount it where ever you want.
Blue tooth ready only means it will accept a blue tooth headset, same as my Nolan, but I don't use bluetooth, I don't want to remember to charge it up every time I want to ride.
