Helmet with bluetooth

Is there a helmet out there which has bluetooth speakers built in? Dont want it for calling, just for speakers so i can play my music without headphones. Ive searched around but didnt come across anything.

2008 Suzuki gsx 650f.

You're better off with a good pair of in ear headphones.

Too much wind noise to enjoy music on highways.

Also you'll be limited to helmets with BT.

Look at Klipsch Reference S4i. They are going $50.

I was looking or the same thing, but realized the cost was not worth it. Got a HJC CL-16 helmet and I use these for music...they are awesome!!!

All your controls can easily be used with gloves on and the controls are right at your collar bone while the buds are just like regular in-ear buds but without the full wire to your phone...I LOVE THEM!

I was looking for something similar but theres not many options less than $200. Even then, I would guess the wind noise at highway pace would drown out the music.

Ended up using Skullcandy Ink'd ear buds to the newest gen Nano. Snake the wire under my jacket into my left pant pocket. The newest gen Nano has only 3 buttons for volume and to change tracks, and not too bad finding the buttons with gloves on.

The inkd buds even allow me sometimes to just leave music off, and use as ear plugs. Picked up like 2 pairs for $20 somewhere online.

Well if you have seen my post about mounting my phone to the handle bars then you can see i do have wires run so i can just sit down and plug in right at thr bottom of my gas tank. Im just already tired of the cord i gotta route in my jacket, keep taking the headphones on and off. I want to just flip a switch and go now. For now i guess i gotta keep using my headphones but there has got to be a wireless alternative somewhere.

Thats why the LG headphones are great...bluetooth to the phone but fit just like wired headphone. No more wires to the phone

I have 1 to no complaints what so ever and no issue with wind noise as there is more volume then you need with the senas units

go time traveler style and go back in time, fuck his grandma, then shoot forward in time and then fuck his mom. Then return back to present state and call him a the product of two incest whores and hes your son and show video of you plowing the both members of his family. .

On my Shoei it was more than enough, as I could have earplugs in and still hear music... but with my Arai where positioning on the foam is not optimal the extra volume definitely helps.

I know 6 guys that all use them since they have seen mine...everyone loves them. I love that my phone reads the gps directions to me while I am playing my music....very nice!

The only thing I did was replace the rubber ear inserts with better ones I had from my Skullcandys but even without doing that they were great

So I started to look around again because I got a new helmet for this season and I can't wear any ear pieces. I found this and I think its sweet looking. 10 hours of battery life is killer plus it seems to be built small enough to not get in the way and take up very little space.

I just installed the uclear hbc100 in my shoei rf-1100. Music is good, it has an intercom feature, and if you decide to make calls it will do that too. Got mine from revzilla for $150 delivered. Check it out
