SPEAKER PLACEMENT A CHALLENGE
from Fredericksburg, Va.
Comments about <em>Chatterbox XBi2-H Plus Bluetooth Intercom</em>:
I use this on two HJC BT-MAX Modular Helmets. Installation was a breeze, but the speaker placement does not seem to be ideal as they are not aligned directly with your ears. The chin strap connection to the helmet seems to interfere with being able to do this. Audio quality is very good at low speeds, but when the wind noise picks up with the increase in speed, it is difficult to hear. I believe the volume should be a little louder, because if you were wearing earplugs (like you are supposed to do on a motorcycle, it would really be difficult to hear. Being able to place these speakers directly with the ear would help. Also, the connection of the unit in the helmet can sometimes be intermittent causing the sound to drop from the left speaker. Fidgeting with the unit (moving it in its socket) corrects this problem. One of the units shipped with a bad charging cable; called Chatterbox support and they shipped me another immediately, no questions asked.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
