Speakers for Shoei RF-1200 helmet?

I am looking into installing speakers in my helmet. I do not think I need a microphone. Is there a SENA or other recommended kit for streaming music to the helmet without the need for communication? Or do all seem to come with microphone capability? Its a full face helmet.

About all the helmet mounted bluetooth devices are going to come with a microphone. You don't have to plug it in however. Up to you.

The Sena units are very good. We have 4 of them, and the last one is improved over the early ones in sound quality and volume. They were already light years ahead of Chatterbox and a couple others I had tried. You can get FM radio built in, which I really like on a trip. I know you can bluetooth music from your phone with them.

Get dent earphones...in helmet speaker compares.

these have done very well for sound quality...I use a silk balaclava - makes putting them on with a helmet much easier and keeps them secure in your ears. Everything else sucks for music.


Depending on your ear canal size - you want these as well - they do wear out over time but much better noise isolation and sound quality.
