TK Helmet Microphones and Speakers

Post by Arsnik »

With my armor still weeks/months out I wanted to get a few things ready. One item potentially is a helmet speaker and microphone setup. Based on member experience is this something that would be useful/needed/a good idea? How about a helmet suspension system? Do hard hat inserts work?

Thanks for the help,

A lot of troopers do use microphones with their armor, but the speaker is generally not in the helmet. There is one 501st member who makes hovi tip microphones, but most go with an external amp. Do a search on the whitearmor.net boards for microphone, or speaker, or Aker and you will see lots of discussion and ideas.

Cedron I took your advice and did some looking. I contacted John May about his ROM/FX Classic kits and as luck would have it he' making a run this month. Thanks for your help.
