Headsets

Hello Everyone;
New as of today. I purchased a 06 K1200LT and love the bike. Am looking for headsets for communication driver to passenger (no Bluetooth). I don't know if BMW makes these anymore (plugin's) but would like to find original type equipment or something similar. Anyone out there with knowledge of these?

Thank you,
Richard

Re: Headsets

Does the bike have the BMW intercom already or is there no system installed on the bike?
If no system is on the bike then you have a few systems to choose from, mostly Blue tooth. The leader in Bluetooth seams to be Sena.
As for wired Motochello , Autocom & J&M all make good systems. I have the Motochello on my K1600GTL & love it.

If your bike has the BMW intercom already installed J&M has the headsets & wires to connect to the bike.

Re: Headsets

It does have the wiring and jacks on the bike, I just need the helmet stuff and connectors that plug into the bike.

Re: Headsets

If your tally for all of the wired stuff runs upward of $300, you really should consider the Sena SMH 10s. You can get a two pack already paried from the factory for under $300 and you won't have to worry about forgetting to unhook when you get off the bike.

Re: Headsets

It depends on what style helmets you are using...but all are available new from Serra electronics...J&M builds them. Your best bet and cheapest option is to get the P seiries universal headset using a 6 pin J&M lower cord. BMW uses a 6 pin din connector.

Products

Use the pull down menu to choose the cord and select "JM-HC-PJM J&M Integratr/ JM CB-2003"

Cost $100.50 per headset with cord

I have an 07 with com system and when I first got the bike bought the helmet mic, speakers and connection cords from J&M. The cords are expensive and only lasted a year so I went to bluetooth system for the same cost as the wired system and it is so much more flexible and sounds better. Also the BMW comm system has marginal functionality compared to any bluetooth system on the market.

Ditto on the Sierra Headsets. They are cheap but really do a good job. I presently use them myself and am pleased with them for CB, Music and intercom.

Re: Headsets

Before I knew much, I bought the Sena SMH5 pair and they work really well. I don't think they have the distance of the SMH10 and also not sure if they have updatable firmware but for driver to passenger com, they are great and cost less than the 10's. IMO, they are a good option if cost is more important than total features or being able to communicate half a mile down the road. They come paired out of the box.

Re: Headsets

If you want to get bluetooth cheap, I bought the Shark SHKMHF6. It was $120 which is a complete set-up for two helmets. I did not need all the bells and whistles so I figured for $120 I'll give it a try. I have had them for a year and they work fine for my needs. I can talk to the SO when riding two up and when by myself I play music from my Samsung phone and can take calls. Suits my needs.
