Going by the fact that wearing earbuds in more than one ear is illegal. I'm willing to bet any headsets or helmets are illegal. Only helmet I can think of would be one that leaves the ears exposed for hearing traffic and sirens, etc.
i was planning to get a single ear headset for street driving, was told that was perfectly legal. plans changed and never did it, and now i don't remember why i wanted to in the first place lol
also when working at outlaw doing the raptor runs, we would be on the road for some small sections between trails sometimes, we required helmets in the dirt, most left them on the whole time, no one got rousted for it.
I appreciate the rapid replies. All makes sense. My truck is way too loud even with dual mufflers. So looks like I will rarely drive it on the street. I just figured in the dirt I/passengers will always wear helmets. Trying to figure if I should get both headsets and helmets.
have you tried some sound deadener? i did my entire cab in second skin and it made the world of difference. i tried cheap amazon stuff first and i couldnt have a conversation with my passenger, now with second skin i make a call using the bluetooth stereo on the freeway
