Here is what I've found in around-the-house testing so far. The Radio Shack eabud/mic (the mic is in the earbud) was comfortable with the helmet on and worked pretty well, but the remote PTT button and VOX didn't work. Turned out that the fine print said it didn't work with most Kenwood and Motorola units. So I got a JABRA brand (at Radio Shack) with an earbud/short boom mic (about 2 1/2 inches long). It is comfortable under the helmet and the mic is between my cheek and helmet padding. It works great - louder, clearer and the remote PTT button works. But, VOX doesn't work (not that I was going to use it). I'm beginning to think my Talkabout 250 Motorolas don't have VOX after all - I'll check. Oh, and although the JABRAs are $29 each, there is a $10 rebate, so cost is still $45 per unit. I'll try them out on the bikes this weekend. Larry
