O'NEAL COMMANDER BLUETOOTH HELMET


Very affordable and yet loaded with impressive features, the O’Neal Commander Bluetooth helmet is what price conscious riders have been looking for a long time. The Bluetooth capability is the highlight and it should be. 10 hours of talk time, 100 foot rider to rider intercom and GPS voice commands make this a great helmet for touring and commuting. Additionally, the Commander boasts a drop down sun shield and flow through venting. For riders looking for a lot of bang for their buck, this is it.

I just bought two of the HJC Max-IS BT helmets. The helmets were $199 each and the Chatter Box Bluetooth units were $250 each. After tax there wasn't much change left out of a $1000 bill.

What are some of the best helmets that come are bluetooth ready?
I have two of the HJC IS-MAX BT with two Chatterbox Bluetooth units and I am well pleased with them. Got them about a month before my SS arrived. I haven't had another type of helmet to compare them to but I have no regrets of buying them, except maybe the price. Especially the Chatterbox units at $250 each.

Can you pair both to the radio at the same time

If you are interested in a 3/4-style helmet, I've been considering the Bell Mag-9 Sena helmets which I saw referenced in another thread.

http://www.revzilla.com/motorcycle/bell-mag-9-sena-helmet-solids

I have not purchased my SS yet, so am still researching helmets as well.

I bought 4 sizes of these helmets (in matching red) with the Sena, from Rick Case Honda in FL. They had them all in stock, and installed the Sena for me, then shipped to my home in MA. Great dealer, and a great helmet. I can listen to the radio, answer the telephone, hear the GPS, and talk to my passenger, all hands free. At speed, one doesn't have to yell to be heard. I think it's the perfect compromise between a beanie half helmet and a constricting full face. (For really hot weather or short runs though, I throw on a DOT approved half helmet).

I just bought the wife and I this helmet and we really like them. I didn't buy the sena yet until I do some riding to see if we even need them.
With a regular passenger you may not need the Sena but my wife talks ALOT. It is a lot easier to hear her with my chatterbox unit. You don't have to holler and lean over to hear each other. Works very well

I use J&M electronics in a Shuberth C3 lid. Light, quiet and convenient to use (flip up) and the sound and comm ability is better than anything else I've tried. Add that it's the easiest helmet to live in for prolonged periods of time I've used. Also like their controls. I can cut my comm link without passenger knowing....

I love my sena SMH5. good volume and the intercom system works really well for the price. You can pick a pair already paired. Just turn on and go.

My wife and I finally received our pair of smh10s this past weekend and are both amazed at the difference that being able to easily chat while driving has made on our enjoyment of the ss.

So far, our preference is to play music through the car speakers and then leave the intercom channel open to chat. I was worried about the wind noise from our 3/4 bell mag-9 helmets, but it is not bad at all.

Quietest helmet I've ever used is the Shuberth C3, also the lightest. Add the best speakers for music, J&M (wired is better than Bluetooth for ease of use) and that would be my tried and tested best kit. Check Motorcycle Consumer News for past tests on helmets and helmet speakers. BTW, using a Garmin Zumo w/Bluetooth made for good phone calls as well as long as you've got the right windshield for your height
