Default In Helmet PTT Setup

Has anyone found a good PTT system to use with in helmet mic and headsets? Everything I have been finding has the screw down collars on the plugs. I'm looking for simple plug in and out style. I know I'm a big enough of a dork I will continually forget to unhook the PTT button and tear the thing from the handle bars. We're currently studying for our Technicians license so we haven't even tried out the speaker/mic setups that came with these Baofengs.

Any advice is greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

Here is a link to the headset we use for the ATVs.
Unless you are just trail riding, I don't recommend this for snowmobiling as it does have a cord that goes down to the PTT button that attaches to the handlebar. This would get ripped off or the cord broken very quickly if mountain riding.

Recommended for snowmobiling is this shoulder mic. Radio goes in backpack and mic attached to backpack strap. Works perfectly!!!

For studying for your Technicians license, i used the following links. You can study, or take a practice test, and see where you need to study more.

Yea those are the sets I've been looking at. When the wife is with me, she thinks the PTT would be cool to be able to talk as we rode, but you understand the issues I see about getting torn off. If I could find one that has just a standard pull apart connector it might work better. If not I may just attach the PTT to my shoulder straps of my pack.


I have the standard mic that came with the units, but the platinum is probably what we will end up with for when the guys ride.


Thanks for the links, I'm using the Hamstudy one now, but the other will really be helpful.


Thanks

Hi TecCrash,

You can look at KONNECT PRO+ headphone.
See konnectadventure.com

It can work nicely with your Baofengs and provides a PTT button remote right on your helmet.

Thanks.

I looked at this one, but don't think it would be easy or convenient to operate the PTT button on the helmet as taking your hand off the handlbar to push the button while riding might be a problem And i definitely don't want voice operated . . . just PTT.

Ideally, there would be a PTT button on the handlebar, mic and speakers in the ear pockets, radio in the backpack, and all connected via bluetooth.

Right now i have a "wired" version of this for ATV riding, and it works VERY well, but i would NOT want wires coming from the helmet and handlebar PTT button for snowmobiling. So having no wires would be the BEST way to go and far more convenient.

Hoping someone will come up with a good solution soon

I have used the SENA bluetooth units before and they have VERY short range. This Chatterbox looks to be the same with short range.

What i am looking for is a kit that has a wireless PTT button that can be mounted on the left handlebar, 2 wireless speakers and a mic in the helmet, and be able to connect this wirelessly to my Baofeng UV5R radio that stays in my backpack. I am assuming there would need to be a little contraption that plugs into the radio itself (2-pin kenwood style connector) that communicates via bluetooth with the PTT and mic/speakers.

The Chatterbox x1 slim and x2 slim are both Gmrs/Frs, just like Motorola, garmin, BCA, baofeng, etc.....
Range is great.
I have the x1 slim. It worked well when i took my kid snowmobiling. And u can talk to anyone with a GMRS/FRS radio.
Mount it to ur helmet. Speakers and mike work well. No wires exposed.
It also has an FM tuner so u can listen to music. Connect it to ur phone via bluetooth and u can listen to music and talk on the phone while riding...

Do you know what the power (wattage) output is on these? The antennas look very short so i would wonder about the range that these would have.

I think this is closer to what I'm thinking. Bluetooth PTT button Bluetooth Headset, and Kenwood style adapter.
