Unfortunately, my wife has about 80% hearing loss.
Her hearing aids are of the external type and too bulky to wear under the helmet. I am not sur what the solutio would be, but I think that I will need a rider to passenger intercom capable of different volume levels for rider & passenger. Increasing the Volume significantly for her helmet.
No need for bike to bike. Satelite Radio would be nice.
Any comment's suggestions from you all would be appreciated.

You can hardwire a J&M intercom to your bike and add a separate volume control for the pax or you can go wireless with a Bluetooth type system. I have both. 80% sounds like a lot but I don't know much about hearing loss. If you hardwire an intercom you will need helmet headsets, they usually come with speakers however with a little electrical work you can install earbuds in place of the speakers. I would think that would work, but again, I don't know how significant 80% is. Would earbuds be loud enough, I don't know???

I haven't tried it for Passenger (I usually ride alone) but my Autocom AVI Super-Pro has separate volume control for the rider and passenger.

I have the same system and the volume control works pretty good. However I doubt that it will be loud enough with the wind, and that much hearing loss. I would call autocom first to check and see if they have any solutions. You can hook plenty of other things (satellite is no problem right up to it).

The Super-Pro AVI compensates for the ambient noise (it has a background noise sensor) and seems to have a lot of volume.
