Re: Having a bad day!
Music audio via bluetooth will not sound good if your hardware (Zumo and Helmet headset) doesn't support stereo. The Zumo bluetooth does not, but what you can do is get a bluetooth dongle (like the WiRevo 1000 that you plug into the 3.5mm audio output jack on the Zumo. You then pair the dongle with your helmet mounted bluetooth and you will experience much better music quality. I also noted much better volume and clarity. Music was useless for me until I did this. That said, the volume was still not great, and I had to add a small amplifier to get it to where I wanted it. I used a boosteroo amp (cheap but not high quality) to try it out, but there are other amps out their like AmpliRider and MixIt2 (Google for details).
Hope this helps you. It did me, but now I have a cable from the Zumo to my tankbag where I store the WiRevo dongle and the boosteroo amp, both battery powered. I get a days worth of riding from both no problem, and charge them all up when I do the headset bluetooth recharge ( I use the Camos BTS200 ).
