Re: Baehr K1200LT Microphone Question....
Yep, as mentioned, the only difference is length. One has a boom length of 160mm, and the other is 170mm long. For 3/4 helmets, you'll likely need to longer (170mm) ones. RaffyK at Motogear4you recommended the 160mm booms for my flip-front(modular) helmets.
As far as I can tell, there's nothing special about the Baehr mics and speakers. In fact, having just recently installed the Baehr speakers and mics in two helmets, I can honestly say that I'm pretty disappointed with their sound quality. Asssumed when you spend the big bucks on a Baehr system, you'd get good speakers. However, mine are pretty inadequate for listeninig to music as they produce no low freq (bass) whatsoever. So everything sounds quite thin despite any sound adjustments (raising bass the way) that I make. And when speaking on the CB, others tell me that it sounds very "tinny", so it seems the mic might alos suffer from this same quality issue. I've read where others have used the J&M headsets (speakers and mics) with the Baehr system...and yet other who have installed aftermarket speakers (like from Sony and.or Radio Shack).
I wish I could think of clever things to say in my signature.
