3G Headset for 3/4 Open face helmets

This 3GOPEN headset is used on 3/4 OPEN helmets, and is the same as our 3GMOD modular headset when the internal boom mic is used. 

The external RCA mount boom mic may be fitted, but generally not recommended if you use a face shield or extended visor. With the RCA, you will want to use the thumbtack to keep the mic seated in hot climates where the heat can loosen the friction mount.

PLEASE NOTE when using your headset on different bikes:
> EdSets uses the lower cable to match the bike to the headset.  
> We put the preamplifier, if required by the bike, into the lower cable itself (lowers cost for non-amped mic systems).
> You can ride any bike mentioned above by using the appropriate lower cable.
> All Radio Sound sourced systems can use the same Power Cable, but we differentiate the preferred cable based only on the need for 90-degree or 180-degree (straight) lower plugs. 
> HD pinout is unique, fits ONLY HD, it is 7-pin, but different pin assignments than others.  There is a straight and right angle available for the two jack types on the Harley series.
> All 6-Pin systems are interchangeable, performance may vary depending on the bike. 
> All 5-Pin systems are interchangeable, and are the only bikes that do NOT require an externally amplified microphone system.

Direct Connect cables for consumer electronics:
* 3G "Zumo' lower cable for this 3G headset works with GPS that have standard 3.5mm (iPod style) audio output jack, and 2.5mm mono mic input jack.  Most bluetooth GPS will have these jacks.
* Some handheld CB radios may be adapted using the 3G Zumo cable as long as the unit can use a dynamic microphone.
* Use our male-to-male patch cable to connect an iPod to the 3G module to listen to iPod when not on a bike with a factory system.

HOW TO ORDER:  Choose your bike system from the drop-down list, and whether you need a right angle plug for the bike or a straight one if available, then place one headset per helmet in your cart and proceed to checkout.

Garmin Zumo GPS Cable for 3G - $60.89
This cable is a replacement for the normal EdSets lower 3G coiled cable.  It connects to the 3G upper cable and to the Zumo cradle.  This lower cord is typically used by Sport, Sport-Touring and Cruiser riders that use the Zumo for their only audio system and are using our 3G headsets with it.   The cable supports Bluetooth Phone calls (incoming and outgoing), Voice Dialing, and also lets you hear XM Radio, MP3 player and Voice Nav prompts if you have those features activated. 

NOTICE: This cable DOES NOT integrate the Zumo into a Goldwing system.  If you want to do that, get the '1800 Mic Splitter' cable, which will allow you to use your headset normally, but also supply the Zumo with a microphone signal for phone calls, and you will hear the audio from the Zumo over the AUX on the Goldwing (cables available at any electronics outlet, look for '3.5mm headphone extension cable'.

Helmet Installation - $65.00
Ordering installation services provides you one "installation" for each helmet. By setting the quantity to 1 or 2 for example, you pay for one or two helmets to be professionally installed. After you order installation services you will simply take your helmets to the UPS store or a similar facility and have them include prepaid return shipping labels (+ 2 pounds per helmet) inside the box to your address. We will automatically set your order status to 'EdSets Install' and we will not ship anything to you until your helmets arrive and leave here using your return lable.

NOTE: Use of packing 'peanuts' instead of paper or foam incurs an additional charge for removing and replacing the loose peanuts. We do not use packing peanuts at EdSets because of the mess.
