Intercom helmet systems

Just found the photos I took! Here's what my Sena harness looks like with the mesh over it. It also passes through the hole in the headset and is sealed with a silicone seal so it's an airtight seal!

Does work with sena yes but we had sena and the protos is miles better by a long way in imo


That’s interesting. I thought that the Protos comms would not work with Sena.
I guess I’m wrong and that makes me think twice about buying another Sena.
Having four sets and having had several bits break, I’m reluctant to buy another so maybe the Protos is a good solution. With everything internal there are no bits to break, although I can see most employees have the skills to bust the boom mike within 48 hours .

They are very tough and we haven’t had any problems with-ours but the lads are good with the kit as they know how expensive they are and we only put them on when working road side or on big take downs or noisy sensitive jobs

We don’t use the boom mic Al. Use the wired one and stick under the peak. Picks up the sound just fine, particularly on Protos as the gap between peak and headband is quite large.

Same here, if you go to the settings for the protos in the app or PC programme you can also turn up the microphone volume so people can hear you clearer

Yes that’s the mike I use and never had a problem with that.
The problem has been with everything else. And I mean everything.

You need heat shrink on the wires to protect them.
