Uproar - The Helmet Hearing Aid

    Re: Uproar - The Helmet Hearing Aid

    OooOo im gonna want to try one of these! If the mic is the same size (or close to) as the borden, you may be able to mount it behind that if you have a metal one that has the holes all the way through.

    I'm not sure how big the borden is, but the default mics I use are 9.7 MM across. I do have some other mics I need to test out, most of which are much smaller

    Awesome,I think I'm going to put small holes in the corners of my visor & mount them there.
    I doubt you will be able to notice it. I'll post pics when I tackle this.

    Re: Uproar - The Helmet Hearing Aid

    Ok,I dont have it permently mounted in my helmet. But I did try it out with my helmet on today & I'm going to say that I'm pretty impressed. I had them hanging out of the bottom & I had my ear buds in. I had my wife stand with her back to me from about 8" away, the. I had her say a number so I could adjust the volume on it. I also tried it with it off & couldn't hear a thing. That was awesome. BUT the only problem I see might be if you are at a convention or somewhere with a lot of people of if there are cars driving by......you might pick them up all at once.
    But over all I like it.

    thxs, so did you drill holes near your visor to mount the speakers? when you say you have them on the bottom, do you mean near the cheek area on the bottom inside of your helmet? im just more of a visual person, when you can pls send a pic. thxs for the detail.

    Re: Uproar - The Helmet Hearing Aid

    Just thinking out loud but I wonder if one had a hollow RF stalk, if a hearing aid like this could be hidden in some fashion in a modified RF topper?

    Re: Uproar - The Helmet Hearing Aid

    There are 2 mics, so I'm not sure if you mean to put them both in the topper or just one, but the default mics should fit. I'm also in the process of testing some upgrades for smaller mics as well. They're a bit more expensive, around $10 - $15 per pair, with shipping. I should have those tested out by next week, I hope.

    Re: Uproar - The Helmet Hearing Aid

    I'm not very savvy with mics, so bear with me. A question for those with an Aker amp. Currently I'm getting massive feedback depending on the volume and placement of the amp's speaker to my mic, which is to be expected. My plan for buying this speaker system is to put each mic in the ears of the helmet, meaning they'll be right next to my headphones. So I was wondering how these two mics and a set of headphones (along with an Aker mic) would suffer in such close proximity? Is there the possibility of feedback from this setup?

    I'd also love to see bucket interiors with it in.

    Re: Uproar - The Helmet Hearing Aid

    I think you'd need earbuds with a setup like that. I'll be drilling out some parts of my helmet tomorrow at the shop, then installing this system using earbuds. I will post step-by-step pics of my progress. Here's hoping I can get earbuds in my ears with the helmet on...

    Next batch of boards is on the way, 50 coming on this order, so there will be plenty Necronaut- good idea on labeling the actual mics L/R, I'll start doing that from now on!

    Please put me down for one from your next batch.

    Have PayPal, will purchase!

    Re: Uproar - The Helmet Hearing Aid

    According to Deutsche Post, the new board shipment is in the US now, so I should have them by next week hopefully!

    Re: Uproar - The Helmet Hearing Aid

    Got the new boards today, but they don't look right. I'm building one tonight to test, so I'll let you guys know if they're gonna work or if I have to contact the fab house for a correction

    Edit! They're all good. Just missing the top soldermask for some reason. But with the conformal coating I use, it reduces that to a cosmetic issue, rather than a function issue. I should have some ready to ship by the weekend
