Hearing help?
« on: Jan 06, 2015, 05:20 AM »
I was looking at information on youtube for speaking outside of your helmet and already picked my voice amp, however I have 2 questions, one dependent on the other. One, is it hard to hear inside the helmet? And two, if so, what kind of hearing pickup is recommended?

I believe a simple headset would work well, for speaking and for picking up.  I know they have setups and tutorials in the electronics section.

I don't think the headset alone would hear outside the helmet. I already figured out how to put my voice outside, but I need to be able to hear the outside from within.

I bought a Velleman super stereo ear set from an electronic supplier near me (about 10 I think) and plan to use it in my next helmet, because I can't hear anything in there. It is easy to assemble, if you know how to solder. You can use any haedphone with a 3,5mm audio connector with it.

weather or not it's hard to hear in your bucket is really something that comes about on an individual basis.  For instance I have no issue hearing in my helmet, others can't hear for oisk and they need all the help they can get. I would suggest getting your helmet padded and testing it out before you go and get external amplification.  If it turns out you need it, figure something out, if not, then you're golden

I've got the same kit waiting for when I start helmet upgrades.

A small tip for your soldering iron is a godsend.

I would suggest getting some insulating foam or something similar to prevent feedback.

How big of a speaker did you get all the speakers Ibe seen so far could not produce a strong enough sound to be audible within a metre

With an aker 1506 you can hear my very clearly at a packed convention hall and with full volume you could project your voice across classrooms. They are quite loud trust me.
