The speakers are attached to the helmet using double sided tape.Every helmet has an area without foam around the ear region.The speakers are lowered to that area so that it fits perfectly and stays in place.

Step 7: Testing

Wear the helmet and see if it fits perfectly around the ears .If not , adjust the speaker until it does.The bluetooth reciever is turned on using the button on it .The same button can be used for accepting incoming calls and changing the music track.

Step 8: Charging

It violates the traffic rules. The Bluetooth adapter which you used has no built-in microphone though its clear it can only play music nevertheless. Isolation of ears and modifications of any helmet in this way, oppose the safety standards.

Offcourse it has a mic in it , you can clearly see the opening for the mic in the picture of the module I have posted in materials required list in the instructible, you can even see the word "mic" written under that opening if you look closely.Here is the link , you can check it out if you don't believe me

As for violating traffic rules, there are plenty of these kinds of helmets already awailable in the market , the expensive ones with intercom,GPS, Bluetooth and all, here is the link to some of them

This is awesome...! i'm gonna add this to my helmet!

in my country its illegal to paint,glue or modifiy a helmet in any way.....

Well, here there is zero modifications to the structure or colour of the helmet, none of the padding or other important features were removed or modified.
There are expensive helmets in the market with built in wireless intercom and audio system
In my country I have see people making calls while riding ,holding their phone in between their shoulder and ears and that too without a helmet.This solves that problem;)

Uhh, I'm pretty sure you had to cut the padding to put the speaker! A headphone with a mic you can pin or tape would be the best bet for his country.

here ,i removed the speaker just to show you the opening, now take a long hard look, does it look like i made that opening? huh , does it?, are you still saying that the helmet didnt a have a opening there already?.I have no reason to lie here, if i had cut the padding i have no problem saying it in public.Most helmets have a V shapped padding which is removable for washing purposes,so i found a headphone speaker which fits into that V, now if you think i lied about the V shaped padding take a look in this link http://shop.vegahelmet.com/c/accessories_replacements-parts_liners_v-tune

It is safe? Your chin will damage If you fall over.

patrick panikulam (author)vktomi2017-08-16

There is always some 2 inch gap between the chin and the helmet.The other thing is the module's height is lower than the helmet's flip switch which is the red button u see in the picture, as long as it's lower than that it's safe
