Sold

For Sale: Two MotoComm Full-Face Headsets, model MC-551.

I bought these so that I could use my Cobra GMRS radios on my bike. I bought a second for my passenger. I now have a Chatterbox and no longer need these headsets.

They are in perfect condition and are in the original packaging. The only thing missing from each set is a small piece of velcro for the microphone - It is of course adhesive and could not be removed from my helmets.

$30.00 for one set shipped inside the lower 48.

$50.00 for both sets shipped inside the lower 48.

Here's a link for more info on the headsets

Man, I wish I could buy these...but they aren't the ones that go with my radios...and I've got rather nice radios, so it wouldn't be worth it to get new radios...

No, the helmets don't come with them - I had mounted these headsets in a pair of Arai Signet GT helmets (mine and my wife's). They have been completely removed.

Each MC-551 package comes complete with...
· 1pc Speaker/Microphone Headset for Full-Face Helmets
· 1pc Weatherproof Handlebar Push-To-Talk (PTT) Switch
· 1pc 3-Way Interface Cable
· 1pc Coiled PTT Extension Cable
· All Installation Accessories, except small piece of velcro for attaching microphone to chin bar.

I have two packages for sale.

First, "Thank You" to both of you for expressing interest in these headsets. Sorry about the late response, I just got back from vacation and haven't checked the board or my e-mail for about a week.

Not sure if I can accept payment via paypal - I only have a very basic account. Would rather be mailed a check. I'll look into the paypal option, though....by the way, I also just got your e-mail this AM.

Yep, you'll need two FRS or GMRS radios that are compatible with the headsets. A compatibility list can be found at the MotoComm site. Mine are Cobra GMRS radios. I still use my Cobra radios by themselves for outdoor activities, so these aren't for sale.

To be completely honest, If you're primarily interested in using them for rider-to-passenger communication, you'd probably be better off getting a Chatterbox HJC-50 Tandem Pro intercom system or similar.

And just in case anyone is wondering, the MotoComm headsets are NOT compatible with Chatterbox products - I tried this.

Why is that? is the quality better?

how much are the cobra radios(I know they aren't for sale, but how much would I spend on radios that are compatable with your headsets)?

$50 shipped is an awesome price. the next thing I am buying is a radio system. I want something for rider to passenger and rider to rider. how were your cobra radios for the $$ that they cost?

I found that having a rider AND a passenger using these headsets to communicate to be rather cumbersome. Each has to have a radio, a wire from the radio to the helmet, and a wire from the wiring harness to the push-to-talk button. It seemed to be a lot of trouble to get everything hooked up on both people before a ride. Only one person can talk at a time, and other radio users can "overhear" your conversation.

The intercom systems work more like a telephone - you can both be talking at the same time. You don't have a push-to-talk button - just a wire from the passenger's helmet to the intercom unit on the rider helmet. Much less hassle to wear and communicate. A friend gave me a good price on a used Chatterbox FRS-X2 with 2 headsets, and I found it much easier to use the built-in intercom feature on the Chatterbox for rider-to-passenger communication than the 2 radio system. I decided to get rid of the MotoComm headsets.

My cobra radios are GMRS, VOX activated units and were $75 for a pair after a $10 rebate. If you went with FRS non-VOX units, you could probably pick up a pair for quite a bit less.
