    Noise cancelling earbuds

    Ok,
    Before the flames start , I am aware decent earplugs are far more effective than noise cancelling earbuds (unless I have only been reading earplug advertising puff).
    My immediate situation is wanting to use the Schuberth C5 I have, but there are, currently , no available SC2 units to use as B/T.   The Zumo 660 disappears in bright sun (even with sunshade thingy) so I need some directions. I did use the speaker system but was aware people were dancing in the street to my mp3 music which was also coming out of the loud speakers, not the desired event.
    So I have a cheap pair of active noise cancelling ear buds which are bluetooth, I am thinking of pairing these and using them instead of earplugs under the C5 so I have music and directions, Im not fussed about talking on the phone although the profess to have microphones for said purpose. What I am wondering is if the collective intelligence has any comments (they are earfun pro by the way) ?  I suspect once SC2 are available I will probs get one mesh and all, but for now they seem the bodge I need?

    The very reason I upgraded to the Garmin Zumo XT.....a far superior display screen in bright sunlight.

    Doesn't XT need a different mount and wiring? Far to complicated for my tiny brain and technically inept fingers.! :087:

    The XT comes with its own mount that fits to the Trophy mount in place of your 660 mount.  The wiring is much simpler.

    I was about to ask a lot about this (despite the thread starting as an ear bud comment ) So do I remove my original mount which allows Sat nav to loudspeaker me (when batteries in B/T are dead) or will XT connect to Speakers?
    Do I have to toally remove the original mount or is there some bolt on converter so I dont have to dismantle everything?

    The XT does not have an Audio Out hard wired connection,
    and just has a simple two wire system for the Power ( Positive and Negative ).

    Audio out is via Bluetooth, OR if no Bluetooth is conected,
    the audio is output to a small loudspeaker built into is cradle mount,
    but you are unlikely to hear that with a helmet on !

    To remove the existing Cradle and fit a different one
    the Cockpit panels have to be removed as the wiring for both
    is routed down inside the metal bracket for a neat installation.

    It's not a difficult job as such, but is a little time consuming
    and can be a bit fiddly if you haven't done one before !

    It is a much neater job to remove the screen and panels to remove the 660 mount and replace it with the XT mount.  The cables for the power supply can then be hidden as they are routed down to the connector for your 660 supply.

    As Coconut says, Bluetooth is the way to get sound to your helmet.  If your helmet speakers have dual input (my Sena does) then the Trophy audio system can be Bluetoothed to the helmet as well.

    I've replaced the sat navigation mount three times now as I've upgraded from 660 to 595 to XT.  It's a fiddly job but with patience,  not difficult.  The XT is way better for readability in sunshine.
