About EdSets

EdSets began in 2002 with a single handmade headset, which I made out of a desire for a better sounding headset than the ones available from any of the companies offering headsets for the Goldwing and similar bikes.  Once I was satisfied with my latest "electronics project" and that I'd beaten the 'big guys' at their own game, and put all those engineering degrees to use finally, I cleaned up and tossed all the leftover parts in a junk box, and went riding. 

The first out-of-town ride was an 8000-mile 'break in' ride for my new Wing, and the headsets and the bike performed beautifully.  I loaned my helmet to a friend later that fall for his passenger to use and after they listened to my headset during a ride, they wanted two for themselves.  My friend mentioned his new sets (he called them 'Ed's sets) on one of the large discussion boards online, and in a couple of months time, the dozens of requests for a set like mine had me working round the clock to try and comply.  I even gave the first dozen away, never realizing that a business had started and I didn't even know it yet.  Soon enough, tho, the name 'EdSets' kind of stuck and we just went with it since I don't know squat about marketing.

The initial demand for a better headset was an indicator of just how limited the choices were in the market, and because EdSets combined my love of music, motorcycles, electronics and audio gear, I recognized the opportunity as a very rare chance to realize the dream of doing what you love for a living, and that started my new career.  I left my former career as a research engineer at the Air Force Research Labs and dedicated myself to EdSets, and have been thrilled at the chance to serve what I think is the happiest and most demanding community on the planet: the luxury touring rider! 

Running EdSets continues to be a blessing I am eternally grateful for!

Over 10 years, as of 2011, since I began, EdSets is now settled into a new home in the Middle Georgia area and we are enjoying the longer riding season and the southern hospitality.  Look for our address at the bottom of the main page and pay a visit when you can.
