    Riding home last night with overcast skies, I couldn't believe how fast dusk came on...until I flipped the dark face shield up. It was still daylight. This shield is extra dark.

    Just an update that the speaker pad mod. made a significant difference. In general, I'm able to comfortably listen to music 2-3 levels down from the max volume with the shield up. The fastest I was able to go this morning was 80mph...no issues.

    In comparison, w/o the pads, I could barely hear music at max volume with the shield down at speeds above 50-55mph.

    I'm happy...ride safe.

    Good to know. I'm surprised Sena doesn't pad their speakers for comfort. I find it annoying when my ears rub on hard plastic.

    You mount the speaker under the helmet liner right :hide:D:D

    No, I mounted them in the round openings which are the same diameter as the speakers. Where did you mount yours?

    I agree, e.g. in the speaker pockets, but under the cheekpad flap/liner, so the speaker isn't touching your head/ears directly.

    I'm thinking we're saying the same thing.

    Yes I just realized those cavities are covered with some padding.

    I wish I could get one of these, but no connections in Germany. I'm leaving on a trip Thursday morning and will be back in my NEXX XD1 because the peak on my new E1 vibrates so bad it blurs my vision. Can you confirm if the Nishua has recess for speakers?

    Sena always includes a set of foam covers for the speakers. They're meant for use where the speaker won't be behind a helmet liner, I seem to remember needing to use them in my XD4 because part of the speaker was exposed, but you could use them hehind the liner if you felt you needed more padding.

    No they didn't have the pre-installed ones, but they were selling the 10u separately (for the Krios) for $180 or 200. It was a really good sale! I opted to go with the 10s instead, I'll post some installation pics when I get a chance.
