The headset delivers great clear sound quality - easy to understand while dirt biking at a high rate of speed -- although that also has to do with the radio as the speakers can only produce what the radio puts out. It was also quite easy to install in my helmet: a typical motocross helmet with open face for goggles and closed, pointed mouth protection. The adhesive backed velcro disk that mounts the mic base to the helmet holds securely -- something I initially doubted. I routed the flexible mic boom in a spiral fashion under the helmet bottom and located the mic right in front of my mouth position. To hold it in place and make it easy to get the helmet on and off without disturbing the headset I drilled two very small holes in the helmet mouth protection and ran a small wire tie in one hole, around the mic boom just behind the mice pickup and back out through the second hole, into the tie clasp and cut it off flush so that there is only the tiny end visible and nothing to catch on. I didn't pull it tight, just snuggish to prevent movement without binding or stressing the boom. As for wires,I didn't want the wire junction where mic, left speaker, right speaker come together hanging down putting tension on the mic mount or wires so I just taped everything to the back of the helmet leaving the one wire with the plug end that goes to the radio harness hanging down off the back. I just used silver duct tape. Some people might object to this type of thing. But I prefer function over some sort of stylish look -- although my helmet is silver, like the duct tape (and Red Green would be proud!). The speakers mounted easily in the ear recesses of my helmet also with a peal and stick adhesive backing velcro pad and the wires routed easily between helmet padding pieces. I cleaned the mounting surface for the speakers and mic mounting points with alcohol first to get a good stick. The speakers have a soft cover and do not hurt my ears (or even touch them much). Although mounting the same set-up in my wife's closed face helmet of different manufacture which had more ear/upper cheek padding required taking the helmet padding piece out, pealing back the cloth and cutting out some foam so that the speaker did not press into her ear and cheek bone. That was not hard either -- about 30 minutes total for her helmet.
The jury is still out on the push to talk switch. I'm glad it was included. However, for dirt biking I did not think it prudent to mount it to the handlebars as intended since falling off would rip the whole thing apart at the plug or elsewhere. So I wrap the push to talk switch around my left thumb, pointing down and a little in on my left thumb so that I can grip the handle grip well, but extend my middle finger and thumb toward each other while still holing on to push the button. Works well. I hold the wiring in place by routing it from the radio (mounted on my belt on the left side toward the back) inside my shirt and body armor, up the back and down the arm and out the inside elbow hole, and along the inside of my forearm. Takes about 2 full minutes to route. But it is nice to be able to communicate with my riding buddies (or wife on easier rides) whereas we had to stop before.
Overall, it's a great setup and great sound quality.
