Instructor looking for communicator recommendations

Recommended Posts

I’ve got the standard chatterbox 2. I discovered in a loud car at high speeds it just doesnt cut it. It starts picking up interference and works again at slow speeds, plus, there’s always the “reliability” of the headsets. 

 

My tango partner in instructor clinic had a speedcom but ut seemed worse in his gutted and caged e30 than a chatterbox. 

 

So it looks like the alternative is a series of bluetooth systems? I’ve found threads on this but they’re old so I was if any great new tips have emerged since 2016

@TXvsLV  Scott Adams would likely have a lot of answers on this topic. I'll have him reach out to you.

I used the Chatterbox systems a lot in HPDE and it seemed fine. Maybe your car is louder than mine. There's a Bluetooth system recommended a lot in motorcycle circles. It's called a Sena.

I actually bit the bullet and got a speedcom - now I’m waiting for the Snell 2020 standard to come out and get a Roux helmet!

 

the speedcom seems very sensitive to where it is on your ear. A little movement in any direction can alter what you hear. I still carry the chatterbox as a backup
