I have put a plug on the speaker wires after removing them so you can plug them back in to the new jack.

I have done it for those who asked. I will do it at the same time as the mod for an additional $5.

It's not too hard since I desolder the speaker wires and remove them the ends are bare and tinned so I just solder them onto a plug, remove the old strain relief, and put the new one on.

Regards...

Excellent!

Awesome mod! Thanks for the nice work and quick turn around. I'm a happy customer as is my buddy Charles.

I have had questions about the ear buds and setup that I use. I tried using ear buds last year once and gave up on it because the buds I had pressed on the padding inside the helmet and irritated my ears. After I did this mod I got a new set of ear buds from cyclebots.com, the S-Plug ear buds. They are very soft and pliable and fit inside the ear so they don't rub or irritate your ears. I have worn them for 16 hours straight with total comfort. I also have a friend that wears them all the time, he has run in 2 Iron Butt Rallies (11 days, 11,000 miles).

The plugup.com website has a volume control extension cable that can be used as well to take care of the increase in volume when using ear buds. http://www.plugup.com/volume_control..._p/ad%20vc.htm

If you purchase the S-Plug ear buds in the 22" length (short) and use this extension to cut down the volume you can then use the G4 normally. The S-Plugs can also be found on the same website: http://www.plugup.com/the_S_plug_ear...22-3.5-4.5.htm

Something I discovered about using the ear buds in a helmet is that they would begin hurting my ears after a while in the saddle, mostly my lower ear lobe where the wires come out; it seemed that the padding would push it into my ear lobe... Some worse than others... Now, I put the ear buds in upside down with the wire pointing up and it stays within my ear instead of pressing against my ear lobe... There is a little sliding tie (I use the 20 dollar Sony ones from Wal-Mart) that takes up slack on the wires that I slide close to the top of my head, put my helmet on then plug it into the G-4 and it is COMPLETELY pain free! I have worn them this way for up to 8 hours, and I do not even know they are there...
Just my experience...

I'm working on one now. It does not have room for a jack inside the clamp but I'm seeing if I can figure a way to reliably solder on an in line jack that can be velcroed to the helmet base. The varnished wires have always been a problem.

I have been successful in installing an inline jack on a short cable to the G9 base so earbuds may be used.

I will install the inline jack and a plug onto your speakers for $30 plus $5 retutn postage.

Send an email to Eileen.Kelleher@gmail.com for contact info to send your unit to me.

Hello, I sent an email to you, but have not heard back. Are you still doing the inline jack conversion for the g9?

Thanks...
