Customer Reviews

Great for paintball masks I picked up this headset and also the open face helmet headset to test them in my Proto paintball mask. I chose this one as the winner because it was more compact than the other one, and I don't need extra loud volume to overcome engine noise. In paintball usually things are pretty quiet as we're sneaking around in the woods, and the volume on this closed face helmet headset seemed sufficient. VOX (voice activated) systems, throat mics, etc have had limited success for us in paintball woodsball play, so I needed another solution that didn't tie me down with wires. Wireless options just didn't have the range, and nothing in FRS that I could find had a wireless solution either.After about 20 small zip ties and some careful placement of wires, I affixed this perfectly within my Proto paintball mask. I wanted a headset that detached from my radio wiring as close to the helmet as possible, and this worked perfect! I now just have the plug hanging right by my right jaw, but everything else fits up in the helmet and away from my face. The earpieces are a bit big, but the speaker part itself within the foam is relatively small so I can hear ambient noise right through the foam without interfering with my gameplay. The speakers actually don't really even touch my ears - they hover just off the ear by about 1/8". The microphone fits in the mouth area in a spot that doesn't touch my face either, but lines directly up with my mouth so I can whisper lightly and it still picks up my voice.I was concerned that the adhesive velcro backing would come loose from the rubber mask, especially when it got sweaty or wet from either water or paintball mess. So, I punched a couple small holes in the velcro pad and zip tied them to my helmet before attaching the velcro-backed speakers. Worked like a charm. I did the same thing with the adhesive pad that is used for the microphone as well. Small zip ties placed strategically through the small vents all over my mask allowed me to route the wires for this headset out of the way of my face entirely. The ratchet clasps of the zip ties are on the outside of the mask so nothing pokes at my face either. If you use small zip ties, you can't even notice them.This headset comes in 3 parts:- The mic and headphones are all on one harness, meeting at a single detachable connection after about 4 feet of wire.- The push-to-talk button has about a 5' cord that detaches from the rest of the wiring harness- Finally, the connector that connects to the radio and joins in a "y" to the headset and the push-to-talk buttonThe push-to-talk button that comes with this set is designed for use on your motorcycle handlebars, but I had another intention for it. I put it on the tactical foregrip of my paintball gun and it fit right where I needed it. My index finger of my non-trigger hand lines right up with this button, and then wiring for this button runs securely underneath the metal aftermarket shroud I have on my marker. The cord comes out the back of the gun right by the airhose, and connects to the radio from there. Now I can keep one hand on the trigger and the other hand on the radio button.What's great about this setup is now I can keep my radio in my tactical vest up by my right shoulder, the push-button on the gun, and the headset is secure in my helmet. But, in between rounds I can detach the gun from the wiring harness and the helmet also separates from it so I can take everything off and not have to deal with a wiring nightmare. Everything is compact, secure and the sound is great. I tested it all at the lowest volumes and I can hear crystal clear but nobody can her my radio talk outside of the helmet. I can whisper at the lightest volumes and players on the other end of the radio heard me without a problem.By spring my whole team will be set up with this rig. Very happy with my results. 5Nice product, but... I was impressed overall with this product. We had some issues with it at first, mostly due to the fact that all helmets are not made the same. It worked pretty well in my helmet, which I was able to install all pieces without the sticky pads, since the velcro stuck to the padding in my helmet. My wife's helmet was not so compatible, and I had to use all 3 sticky pads. Also, we had to move the earpieces around in her helmet, because it comes through a bit quiet unless you have it right next to your ear, and she couldn't hear over the ATV engine. When we finally got it positioned correctly, it was a non-issue. Overall, we are pleased with them, just wish they could be a bit louder. 4Decent set up....too many wires Had problems with the radios when i pluged these in...would think a radio issue. Only thing i didnt like about these is too much wire in the helmet. Seemed like they could of daisy chained the wiring. But fit and comfort was good. And worked well on 2/4 radios. 3Worked okay. Bought with midland two-way radios for snowmobiling. Some problems I expected, like having to deal with all of the cords and the hassle when trying to put your helmet on and take it off. One problem that I didn't expect was that the moisture from my breathing eventually destroyed the glue that held the foam on the microphone, and then the moisture destroyed the microphone. So they lasted for one weekend trip. I could understand my partner when we were stopped, but I could only hear her voice when we were driving; I couldn't make out what she was saying. 3Were these headsets ever field tested? I tested the headsets by mounting them inside closed face helmets. Even when standing inside perfectly quite rooms I could barely hear the conversation on either end. There is NO WAY these would work between riders at any speed.I tested it again using a midland radio on one end, and the headset mounted in a closed face helmet on the other. The radio picked up the conversation from the helmet headset just fine. So the problem is not the microphone but the speakers. If you can find a way to hack the speakers into earbuds they "might" work, but my electronics buddy attempted this and the wiring is so small it would take some special skill.I'm very disappointed in this product! It's a shame Midland couldn't produce a better working setup. Money wasted. 1Great for communicating on the trails This is a great solution to improve communication while on the trails. Speakers work great as long as you place them correctly. Microphone works best placed directly in front of your mouth, obviously. I just wish that the cables were a little bit shorter, or at least the disconnect for the speakers/mic were closer to your helmet so you can install them permanently and not have to worry about cords dangling down when your not using them. Definitely a good purchase though. 4Learned the hard way... Most of this is my bad -- learning experience. I had this rig attached to a pair of Midland LXT-276 (I think) radios. They are low end radios and there is no volume control (that I can find). One of the speakers is intermittent in the helmet rig that I got (worked less than 50% of the time). With no volume control and only a single speaker working less than 50% of the time, hearing at highway speeds was practically impossible.Anyone considering this rig:1) As a minimum, use a radio that has enough volume and a volume control where you can overcome helmet noise even when both speakers are working.2) Try this rig out with some serious highway driving before you go on an extended run with it to determine if it fits the bill. I didn't do this and got pretty frustrated at some critical points in my trip.This is an inexpensive setup. That is a plus but not enough of a plus that I would do this again. Matter of fact, I ended up buying a pair of radios at a truck stop to replace one of the LXT-276s that got soaked. The replacement radios were so much better than the LXT-276 that after my trip I bought a more expensive helmet rig to go with the new radios and am obsoleting the Midland rig entirely. NEXT time, I hope not to be in this position. 2Good, but there's really no other choice A bit on the fragile side which is irritating. It works well, but like I said, it breaks easily. One thing we do that may be helpful is to get a silver Sharpie and "color" the arrows so it's easy to see how to hook up. Don't tug on the earpiece or microphone though. We were able to re-solder the microphone in a pinch. Now we just keep a couple extra headsets. I wish there was an alternative that would work with our radios. :( 3I really wanted to like this. But i don't -- unusable We got these for our ATV full face helmets. Install was easy. Really a snap to Velcro on the PTT button on the handlebar and tuck away the really thin earphones in the helmet. They should fit in almost any helmet even if the is zero clearance between your ears and the helmet.Here is the difference between my review and the people that loved the product. If i was stopped with the ATV off and listening really intently, with nobody talking in the background... then i could hear what the person transmitting was saying. Not because it was garbled or anything like that... it was crystal clear transmission. The problem was purely volume. I had the radio turned up all the way. it is really really quite. You would have absolutely no chance of hearing what the other guy is saying even at an idle.I don't understand why my experience is so different than the other reviewers. I've tried the headset with the other midland radio. The radio works fine, very loud, without the headset. I don't know... but its unusable with the very very low volume problem. 1What? Speak up. I can't hear you. You get what you pay for. I purchased these in helmet communication devices for use with my Midland Walkie Talkies. They were cheap and easy to install in my helmets but the sound quality is so poor that the only way I can hear on them is when my wife and I don't have our motorcycles running. A distinct disadvantage for use on a bike trip. Any speeds above 30mph and my wife's voice becomes unintelligible. I only know she is talking because of the static filling my helmet. The other drawback of this product is that the wiring harness connecting the various pieces of the product wraps around me like gauze around a mummy and makes riding uncomfortable. Detaching yourself from set leaves wire hanging from the helmet, the bike and my jacket. I feel like a Borg. The PTT button is so large that it interferes with safe steering and clutch use on the bike. This product seems better positioned as a child's toy and not for a viable biker communication device. 1
