* Main Harness:

Select the main helmet harness/main connector unless you already have one from another EdSets 2G headset. This is the basic part of the 2G headset.


* LOWER CABLE:

Use 5-Pin cable for Goldwing, Venture and Voyager bikes, and use Universal/Zumo for Zumo 550 and similar devices. Choose adapter below for using earbud speakers. NOTE: The 2G headsets are not for use with systems that have powered microphones like the Harley Ultra, Victory Vision, Can Am, BMW, Kaw 1700 Voyager, etc. Use EdSets 3G headsets with EdSets power cables for those applications.




* MICROPHONE:
Add a microphone for CB/Intercom use. Use Tab Mic (boom) on 3/4 and use a Surface Mic on full and flip-up helmets.

* Installation by EdSets:

The 2G headset is standardized with a wiring harness, a lower cable, a boom mic, and a windscreen.  The 2G carries a 1 year warranty on any failed component.  The harness carries the mic and speaker lines into the helmet where you connect all of the speakers and the microphone.

Unlike the 3G headset, there is no built in ear bud jack, but you can use EdSets Universal Adapters to get that functionality.

Now in their 15th year, the EdSets 2nd Generation or '2G' modular headsets have been updated with a new Kevlar Core 'Dongle' or helmet connector.  This new connector uses no-load helical wound tinsel wire cables for super durability, reliability and long life, just like NASA, military and medical applications use for life support and mission critical systems.

We've also added a longer coiled cable in 5 or 6 Pin configurations to fit most factory audio systems, and a universal cable with 3.5mm stereo and 2.5mm microphone plugs to fit most consumer electronics like the Garmin Zumo GPS, many hand held 2-way radios and more.  (Call for more info about compatibility with your system).  The 2G headsets can also be used with our Universal Adapters to allow you to use earbuds instead of helmet speakers, and and also allows you to use the headsets with an iPOD or similar device as an input when no other system is available for audio.

The 2G headsets use the same microphones and speakers as our 3G headsets, so there's never a decision on whether to get the 'good' set or not.  We only have one level of sound quality, and that's our top of the line, best sound in the industry! 

The basic 2G headset is ordered by starting with the basic part, the helmet harness, and you add whatever other items you need and any options that fit your situation.  A basic 2G kit would include a coiled cable, our Kevlar Core helmet connector (or '2G Module'), two of our Thump-Pump hi-fidelity speakers with patented soft-pocket mounts, and a choice of two different microphones. 

To configure your 2G headset, select a microphone option and any other accessories or extras.  For instance, if you have a modular helmet and still want to use the full-face type mic, you will have a short section of wire between the moving and fixed part of the helemt, so select the wire wrap from the options section.  You can also get optional adhesive primer and extra Dual Lock in case you want to mount the headset in other helmets.

For Full Face helmets, choose the 'Surface Mic' option above, which can be surface mounted or flush mounted on the chinbar. 

For Modular helmets and 3/4 helmets, select the 'TAB Mic' option, which is an internal boom mounted mic that stays in place while the chinbar or face shield is raised, including on the newer extreme flip/rotate/convertible helmets.
