Re: Earplugs that are not as insulating? Less than 30dB?
Thanks, Dick and Ron:
I am trying to start using only one helmet for all my bikes and that is why I do not want to use separate earsets: they do not work with the built-in J&M helmet speakers. Too tight in ear cavities and too painful.
Until recently, I have used Etymotic's earplug-speakers on some bikes and used one helmet on the LT and another elsewhere. Just too much trouble.
By the way, Boostaroo is an amplifier for earsets, so again, it would not help me.
My point is that the K1200LT system works very well, combining my Sat radio, GPS, radar detector, FRS radio and passenger intercom at correct volume.
I would like to make it easy on myself and have the same setup with the same helmet on other bikes and that is why I want to use the compatible J&M Intergrator. Since its volume is lower, I am willing to try less insulating earplugs.
If everything else fails, I may built an inline amplifier into the helmet cord - I am able to do that, but do not feel like it is worth the effort yet.
I'll keep you all posted on the further developments. Time to continue prepping the bikes for beginning of the season. Finally!
