I am looking for info on helmet communicators. My roomate and I are thinking of investing in some. I have collet communicators for sledding and they are worthless......anybody have better experiences with cycle ones?
Originally posted by zx7r94 i've got a chatterbox, & it works alright, but i have to turn down the voice sensitivity whenever i'm not speaking, or i can't hear anyone else talking to me b/c the chatterboxes are only half-duplex.
this may be a stupid question but........ what is a half duplex?....
Can you communicat with someone in a cage?.... does it work like a CB radio?.... thanks for your help
I have a Chatterbox X1, so does my girlfriend. I bought them mid-saeson last year and love them. They really do change the entire riding experience. Quite a few of the people I ride with have them. It allows you to point out up coming road hazards in group rides, give directions, and warn a fellow rider of any upcoming hotties as well.
The HJC Chatterboxes have a lot of really nice options as well. There are input jacks for a cellular phone and a CD/MP3/radio input jack. It is stated to have a 5-mile range, but I would say in the terrain in Pittsburgh it is probably closer to half of that.
We got our through www.motoemporium.com. If you call up there and ask for Jay he will hook you up on the price.
me and my girlfriend have chatterbox x1's. i love them. they work excellent. the voice activation can be tough to get down. she is still a new rider ( 6 months) and is more worried about riding than playing with the sensintivity. i have never had a problem with it.
