Anyone have a bell 500 helmet?

Does it have cut outs in the foam at the ears to add speakers , say from a sena Bluetooth?

I have one I bought to ride with my Scambler and the padding is very thin on it. Not exactly sure how they got a DOT rating on the 500s. Definitely not CE compliant. I do not think the speakers from a Sena bluetooth would fit which I also have. I have used some Shure noise isolation earbuds with it though and they were fine.

New

Take a look at The Bell mag 9 Sena SMH10 integrated helmet on the Rivzilla site. Its new for this year & will be available late Feb or March. Looks to be the answer to the bulky helmet communications devices. Open face only now but knowing Bell developmen,I'm sure it will be on their hi-end full face helmets before long

Thanks for the replies.That sena helmet does look very well thought out. Not exactly the style I wanted though.

In case anyone else was wondering the Sena fits fine. Plenty of room. I went without the mic since I only use it for music, but the mic fits and works fine also.






I may look like the great gazoo but who cares
