"noise cancelling headset"

I forgot about that one, another good idea for the brains that do this stuff. Especially if it can block out those pesky sirens that keep showing up behind me

Noise cancelling does not work well in the currently available systems. Senheiser makes a nice noise attenuating headset with small thin ear pads. I got one, took it apart and mounted the pads in my Arai. It did reduce ambient noise a little bit, but only works on low frequencies. Wind noise is mostly white noise, i.e. rich in medium and high frequencies and was not affected.

I do not know why noise attenuating systems do not work on higher frequencies, but I suspect that it has to do with the wave length and the risk that the "cancelling" signal would too often end up in phase with the noise when it reaches the ear.

Yeah, the HUD on my Phantom came in handy chasing Migs around.

Don't think I'd care for it too much on a bike.

HUDs have come a long way since the F4 days Sarnali........if you ever have a chance to sit in a Super Hornet(or if you a n AF guy,an F16 youll be amazed. But I a'regree with you,a HUD on my helmet would be distracting:be fun to try one though.

Can they also add a voice link to a PDA in the helmet with phone, gps, dvd, xmradio, remote camera, message machine, radar detector, satellite cable. thermostat controls, garage door opener? What, no dvd. On second thought, forget about it. I drop my helmet alot.
