I found a few threads but none specific to what motorcycle helmets people are using. I am really thinking about a new helmet with stereo bluetooth (A2DP) built in and wondering what people have used or any reviews. I kinda want to stay away from adding something to my current full face but I guess its not out of the question. Most add in kits seem like they cost more than a NEW helmet with the bluetooth built in. I am also concerned about adding something to a helmet not necessarily designed for add on technology. I really don't care about calls or texts but I would really like to listen to music to and from work and on trips and don't want to mess with wires if I don't have to.

Depends on what you really want...There is the Nolan series of modular helmets that have it integrated, there are the Chatterbox and Scala add on's that will work with your current helmet, and my personal favorite, slimline wired audio speakers velcro'd in the ear holes hooked to my iPod shuffle also velcro'd to the L side of my helmet within easy reach... :)

I wear a Nolan N102 with the older (mono) Bluetooth kit 2. The newer helmets use the Bluetooth kit 2.1 which supports A2DP and AVRCP. If they hadn't changed the shape of the new helmets so that they no longer fit my head, I'd be wearing a N90 with the Bluetooth kit 2.1 now.
