Ah. That is why it is so cheap. I was hoping it was a smoking deal.

How did you modify the cheek pad? Did you cut out the circular part that looks like a speaker or did you mount the speaker on top of it?

Here's a couple of pics-

You do need to hollow out the foam a little so the ear pieces don't bother the ears.

You also need to notch the chin pad to allow the boom mic to not push the pad outward.

Good Luck!!

I can't see the 1st pic.

Stardbog the only thing about Bluetooth is it won't connect to the radio. Don't know if you can listen to tunes on your iPhone via Bluetooth or not but as bad as the batteries last won't be listening for long if you can.

Look at what I just found. It is clampless just like what they told me could only be done at their factory.

Here is another one but says high output. Is there really a difference?

Found this describing J&M's custom installation process and the helmet they used sounds just like the 900.

F.Y.I. i bought my j&m head set from a lovely member here and had him send it to me and when i got it ,i looked at it and figured I'd cut off my hand with a exacto knife so i took it to a local shop were I've spent a lot of money and drooped it off. picked it up the next day at NO CHARGE!!!! hopefully this will help.

I have used the J&M universal headsets for years on my openface helmets/flipface helmets and liked them.
After I had already boughten my EXO900 helmet I seen that they have the headset made specifically for that helmet. ie: it fits in the opening once you remove the plate. I contacted J&M to buy the kit and was told that they wouldn't sell it to me. I had to buy the complete helmet or ship them my helmet and they would install it. Crazyness.
Anyways, I looked around and found a different headset at half the price. I took a gamble and am glad I did. The speakers were half the thickness and I didn't have to alter the helmet to put them in. In my opinion the speakers were as good or maybe even better than the J&M ones. The only drawback I have is when I run the stubby shield I get more windnoise in my mike with the face removed. This is resolved by turning down the IC volume.

Here is the links: The one to buy is the one for the Goldwing.

I like how the door is included.

This is the only J&m setup that I could find that doesn't have the outside clamp. My guess is this is the one they are installing but that is just a guess. http://www.sierra-mc.com/proddetail....D584-CLAMPLESS

One thing about the ones you posted is the comment about the wind noise. Not sure if J&M mics do that?

I have never noticed the J&M ones do that. But, like I said, it only happens with openface helmet and the stubby shield. I can still her the wife with the IC turned down(unfortunately) LOL.
I personally think the speakers are better on the IMC ones and the mic is on the J&M. I decided I liked the looks of the ones from IMC because they went in the hole the manf. of the helmet made for it and I could not get that from J&M.
