New to the Radio Stuff

I was wondering how do people use the radio headsets when riding? Do they use helmet headsets? Are there some you can wear with you regular helmet?
Do they work with hand-held two way radios as well?

yOu can do it both ways ggr if you want they can put the ear piece and mic wired in your helmet or you can use their headsets like an airplane pilot I have never tried a helmet but I use the headsets the systems from rugged radios work very well and you can listen to music at the same time

Great set up

We don't usually wear a helmet in the Rhino. It doesn't go very fast. We have taken some pretty good climbs over washed-out, rutty trails...the best ride so far...so maybe we should wear helmets. I probably like the headset like an airplane pilot-I think. Can you talk to regular walkie-talkies. We usually take our Motorala Walk-Abouts which have a 27 mile range. This allows us to talk to base camp and other riders...but many times the noise is too loud and I don't even hear someone talking to me unless the Rhino's off.
So, I am just wondering if they use radio frequencies like listed in another thread or if they use frequencies like a walkie-talkie.

you can get radios that talk to the walkabouts or cables that can adapt to them and use the headsets.

I like the h41 model from rugged radios, it sure make the ride quieter also.

the headsets also have a mini plug so you could plug in an ipod or walkman if you want to listen to music while your riding also.

Wow sorry for the late response... didn't see this one

We have (As stated above) behind the head headsets and above the head headsets. I plan on doing a full write up on our headsets and the differences with photos and such to make the choice a little easier than it has been in the past.

Our over the head headset feels more comfortable but doesn't stay on as well as the behind the head headset. The behind the head all come in black, red, blue and carbon fiber and the over the heads just come in black and carbon fiber.

Our helmet kits can be mounted in an open or closed face helmet, just as long as the ears are covered

Radios are connected through the intercom if you have more than one person but can be connected to a single person without an intercom. As stated above as well, the headsets have a 3.5mm plug so you can connect a ipod, mp3 player or sanner to the headset.

Thanks for the info. Been too busy too have much fun lately. Daughter moved home with her 3 yr old (I posted his pic when he younger). He's a bunch of fun and keeps us all busy. Also been taking care of my almost 90 year old father. Bunch of test being done...he takes care of my 85 yr old mother who needs a lot of care...it is important to keep him around...I just wouldn't know how to care for my mother along with teach middle school, and keep things in order at home. You may not hear from me for awhile because life has other plans for my time right now. Maybe I can sneak in some rides from time to time...where we mostly ride is about 40 minutes away kinda in the the "sticks". A little too far to get there easily and quickly. I miss it! It's been too hot to ride anyway!
