I need a new open face helmet. ( I really can't or don't wear the full-face cover type. I know they are safer, but I can not wear one.
yes, I have tried.)
I want one of good quality, light-weight and comfortable, that will accept my headset earphones and mike.
ANY SUGGESTIONS?

G I, I bought HJC IS-33 for me & the wife & really like them. Lightweight, have built in sun visor (like jet pilots) are good looking & reasonably priced. Just one ole fossil's opinion.

+1 on that one fossil92. I have three helmets: a DOT approved half-lid with removeable ear covers, an Arai Vector and the HJC IS33. HJC is really climbing in the safety test scores, and when you factor in the price, they're hard to pass up.:cool:

G I mine fits the same size as my Simpson did so I don't quite know how to answer your question regarding size. Maybe you should find a dealer who has them on the shelf where you can try them on. The neck area also seems fine to me. I mounted J&M headsets, not sure how Honda's are different. What I did was take the liner out & took a hole saw to the foam & made a recess for the ear pieces tucked all the wire in & put the liner back in. The liner is thin enough & loose enough material that the noise level wasn't that much different. Hope this helps.

Bought a Fulmer open face/ with visor last week. Has little pockets in the ear cavity for the headset speakers. Don't have a headset so I can't comment on the mic mounting, but the helmet was only $74.00 out the door. For me it satisifies two requirements: my state helmet law; and the comfort of the helmet when highway riding.
