These Helmet Speakers
Installed Easily and Worked Well.
I bought and installed these speakers inside my BMW System 5
helmet and you wouldn’t know they are there. They fitted
that well. I had tried to use audio earplugs and they just
didn’t work for me. I did want audio while riding to pick
up my GPS directions. I had tried the Garmin Zumo 550 without
audio and it was too cumbersome trying to read the screen and
ride at the same time, probably a tad dangerous to me and
everyone else around me too!
I wasn’t too worried about wires and have found an easy
route for them on the R1200GS. One bonus was the 2 GIG card I
fitted into the GPS and filled with music. The beauty of the
wired speaker version over the bluetooth speaker option is
you get stereo with the wired version and only mono with the
bluetooth ones. So occaisionally a bit of music on the boring
Funny thing about the music was I found it distracting on
the twisty bits, I much more enjoyed getting into the road and
found the tunes annoying. I have discovered audio mp3 books and
will download and try one on an upcoming trip to Alice Springs,
lots of straight bits there.

You can see the speakers in this photo
there is also a volume control switch inline. This ends up
close to the helmet and seems to work fine. I found it
accessible and easy to use.
