I am buying a new Nolan 104 EVO and I am trying to decide if I should go with wired headset or wireless? :nerd: Wife doesn't ride much anymore so she will stay wired if that has any bearing on your advice. All information is greatly appreciated. :grin2:

I am going wireless, because my wife cannot stand having to blindly fumble around with connecting the cord especially in the winter with gloves and coat.

I've never had a wired set, so can't really compare, but Sena BT have worked well for my wife and I for 5 years now. Battery life has been >13hr. Normally just plug them in when we get to the motel (tip - bring a short cord power-bar so you can charge headsets & phones all at once). If you do forget to charge it's easy enough to run a cord from a 12V outlet in the trunk to the headset and charge it while riding and using it. When alone, I use their SM10 in the glove box to listen to bike audio. Works well.

It doesn't really matter what I like its what do you like? What have you been using up until now? Wired by the sound of it. If so why are you considering a change and what are you hoping to gain?

My wife doesn't ride, and seldom would I use anything to talk to another rider. I use a set of helmet speakers installed by me with the small phono plug. I like the better fidelity of the wired system. Helmet speaker placement is the key to better sound. The speakers should be lined up correctly with your ears and as close a possible to increase the low range sound transfer. I use an adapter shown in the picture to use the audio only from the bike. Good luck!

I will agree it is cheaper, and learning to use a wired headset is easier. If put in the situation, I would spend the money again to go with my SENA 20S. The advantages far outweigh the disadvantages.

It Appears!!

Soooo...What did you decide on?
It appears Hal decided to go with the "Blue" as all his wired stuff is For Sale in the FS forum. Good for Hal. It's in my future for sure too ... :grin2:
