Re: Elite vs Performance Headset
I have been using Elite speakers for probably 8-10 years. Fantastic sound and very, very loud. I ride with earplugs and had no problems with hearing the full spectrum of music sound, from squeeky treble to deep bass, with these helmet speakers. Prior to the Elite sets, I used several brands of wired speakers and these did not work well: barely audible at speed with earplugs.
The only problem I had was the Aeromike (sp?) boom: the way I had it mounted, it was being bent every time I flipped the helmet open or shut. It would break every 2-3 seasons and I'd simply buy a replacement. All parts are available from J&M.
A short time ago I sold my LT. The replacement bike has no built-in intercom; I opted to go with a Bluetooth set and gave the J&M parts to the buyer of my bike. He's the lucky guy: my BT set, even though according to the reviews, one of the loudest on the market, is not even close in loudness. It's understandable with the wireless design and all, but I'd gladly exchange running time for volume.
J&M wired set still rules.
