Helmet Speaker Idea to consider
Some of you know that getting your helmet speakers to sound good can be tricky. In general, the closer the helmet speaker is to your ear the better the sound and fidelity becomes. I have tried several combinations inside a helmet with varying success. Mine sound pretty good, but I have an idea. I don't seem to be able to quite find what I am looking for already existing to buy. I tried one of the headbands that people wear when exercising. The sound is good, but getting the helmet over it all the time is not very convenient.
My idea comes from remembering the snoopy hat speakers that astronauts wore on the apollo missions. My version would be something mesh you could wear in the summer.
1. What about if you had a lightweight mesh skull cap with speakers mounted in the sides. The mesh is cool enough to wear beneath your helmet in the summer and allows air to flow around etc. The mesh skull cap would already have the speakers sewn inside and would hold them close to your ears and in the exact right place every time you put it on. It could have an elastic band around the edges to hold it on your head easily. The whole thing would not interfere with putting on your helmet of any kind.
Anyone had something like this?
Any good reason to stay out of someone else’s mess is a gift to both parties.
