Motorola also makes one, but it is expensive as far as bluetooth headsets go....
Its 400 something for their helmets plus additional 200 something for the module. After that the skys the limit. Ipods, BT cellphones, audio from gps units etc... (helmets can be had much cheaper at actually retail outlets, my dad picked a brand new n102 for less than $250 at the recent moto expo show in san mateo ca)bhowman1980 said:With all the new tech for cell phones hitting the market bluetooth head set seem to be the most popular thing out there. I personally don't have one yet but with all the missed calls trying to meet up with friends for a afternoon ride it seems like i stop remove helmet... return call and miss them only to put helmet back on and miss them calling back... One solution that I have debated is installing a blue tooth headset into the helmet for just such occasions. Granted the riding of a bike takes all priority over chatting on a cell but this would make it easier to catch calls and simply pull over for a sec to answer(very easy to do on a bike).... I have talk to a few people that have done this and the love it but I haven't seen them in some time. Now I have an interest in doing this myself but have no info to go by. I guess that leaves me with a couple questions.
1. Would this be feasible at all in the first place aka...legal @least in oh?
2. What head set will answer calls by voice or the talk function on the phone cuz you can't really press a button on the headset under a helmet!!!
3. What headset would allow you to extend the mic towards the front of the helmet.
IMO the headset would have to be mounted to the helmet for comfort reasons and the foam would probable need modified to allow the headset to fit
Obviously I don't think this is a good idea for a while riding situation but a headset would allow you to hear the ringer and pull over to answer or at least call back right away without the fuss of removing your helmet. Could come in handy anyway. Any and all feedback is welcome!

Wow learn something new every day! Thanks for the cool info.hollywood said:The name Bluetooth is derived from the cognomen of a 10th century king, Harald Bluetooth King of Denmark and Norway from 935 and 936 respectively, to 940. He is known for his unification of previously warring tribes from Denmark (including Scania, present-day Sweden, where the Bluetooth technology was invented) and Norway. Bluetooth likewise was intended to unify different technologies like computers and mobile phones

The above review from Webbikeworld a few weeks back for a BT system was a good read. If I was looking for a BT setup this is the one that I'd be into. No, I'm not affiliated with WBW.
