IMC Headsets & your LT

Just a bit of a warning to anyone considering IMC headsets for the BMW Comm system. After trial & error (at significant cost) I learned from the lead tech at Sierra Electronics that IMC Microphones demand more power (watts or volts ... who knows) then is available on the bike -- when riding two-up .... which is exactly when I would want to use my microphones ... .

Anyway -- ended up buying J&M Headsets and they work beautifully.

Although now I have this voice in my head while riding which sounds remarkably like my wife's .............

Now I read this!

bought a set of IMC headsets for my new Arai at the Honda dealer in Burlington, ON. He told me that the wingers all love 'em and it was only $100 CAD so why not. An initial test in the garage was not good but I assumed that I just needed to "tweak" the settings on Voice 2 a little.

Apparently not! guess I will have to order a set from J&M, maybe for delivery at CCR (way cheaper than any seller this side of the 49th).

Oh well, live and learn - at least I did not install the IMC's permanently in my hat!

I have the IMC for my GS and have had no issues. Is this problem particular to the LT crowd?
