For all those people who wish their helmet speakers worked well at speed it is now possible for your helmet speakers to work very well at speed if placed inside Quiet Ride ear noise reduction muffs installed in a motorcycle or snowmobile helmet.

These muffs have a noise reduction rating (NRR) of 18 decibels. For the wearer of helmet it means exterior noise entering your ears will be 65% less with Quiet Ride Ear Muffs installed in helmet. If wearer installs helmet speakers in the Quiet Ride Ear Muffs he or she can expect their helmet speakers to perform 65% better with the elimination of 65% of competing exterior noise interfering with helmet speaker performance.

Click on the YouTube link below to hear remote computer speaker volume set at 96 decibels for 10 seconds with Apex Yamaha revved up engine on jack stand. For next 10 seconds volume is turned down by 18 decibels, as shown by sound level meter in lower left corner, to a 78 decibels average. 18 decibel reduction in sound translates into 65% less noise coming from remote computer speakers. Listen to dramatic sound difference you can expect with Quiet Ride Ear Muffs installed in your helmet.

Ear muff comes with 3/4 inch tape on ear muff pad half on ABS washer and half on ear muff base cup.  Electrician tape over ear muff pad and ear muff cup is there for two  reasons.  One, when you put helmet on and off tape will not allow ear muff pad to peel off of ABS washer it is stuck to.  Second, ear muff is quieter with electrician tape added.  It seals connection seam  between  ABS washer and pad that is snapped onto ABS cup.

Step 16a
When you snap ear muffs back together with speakers installed and 3/4" elctricians tape reinstalled there probably will be an air gap around speaker line coming through ear muff. You should use a little Goop put on finger and smeared around speaker line at hole to seal against air and sound leak.

Step 17
 
Step 18
Before smearing Goop silicone around speaker line coming through hole put tap over muff pad air vent hole to protect vent hole from Goop. See picture on right.

Step 19
 
Step 20
Picture above of motocross helmet shows speaker in right and left ear muffs in proper location in ear muff so ear flap will slip in behind speakers.

Step 21
If you wear a balaclava, it is important to take a scissors and cut a slot for your ears to stick out of balaclava. The ear muff pads will seal better around your ears when this is done. Your ears will still stay nice and warm inside ear muffs in severe cold weather.
