Helmet Communications Made Simple

Helmet Communications Made Simple.

When it comes to choosing the helmet communication system that meets your needs, it helps to get an opinion from a trained specialist. For the past 23 years, The Helmet Shop has been helping customers determine the best helmet communication systems for the type of riding they do. The type of motorcycle you ride, the number of people in your group, whether you need to plug in or plan to go wireless, are just a few of the questions we may have when helping you make the best decision for your new helmet headset. Our support team is available at 1-800-630-6434 Monday - Saturday 10am-6pm EST and Sunday 10am-3pm.

Here is a preview of the 3 most common helmet / headset systems that will meet the needs of most motorcyclists looking to to communicate with other riders. The categories are as follows:

WIRED HEADSETS

WIRELESS HEADSETS

WIRED/WIRELESS
COMBO





For owners of Gold Wing, BMW, and Harley Davidson motorcycle with on board communication systems.
For any motorcyclist that prefers no wires and wants to be able to bluetooth connect to devices like a cell phone or GPS as well as communicate to other bikers up to a mile away.
For rides who want to plug into their bike but would also like to connect to bluetooth devices like cell phones and GPS units.

WIRED HEADSETS
The Helmet Shop is a stocking dealer for J&M Headsets. We have found that the J&M headsets offer the best sound quality for riders who would like to plug into their existing sound system on their motorcycle. We recommend either the 787 Elite Series with the higher fidelity sound or the 279 Performance Series. Both provide excellent sound and voice quality and are cover by J&M's 2 year warranty.

The J&M headsets are available in 3 styles. The Universal Style, which will clamp on the left side of most all helmets on the market. A cleaner look is the J&M Integrated Style where the cord is attached on a 90 degree angle from the left side of the helmet. The Half Helmet Style fits nicely in most half Helmets on the market.
