I got https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B009XD35OI/ and 2x https://www.ebay.com/itm/NEW-C20G-CO...frcectupt=true

(I then sold those headsets and got 2x used
https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B010KRL3KI/ because active noise cancellation does wonders for the sidepipe drone on long trips)


I thought about trying the bluetooth stuff for motorcycles, but private pilots headsets are built for loud environments. I struggled to find a cheap intercom, I tried a $50 motorcycle intercom, and it just didn't work well enough.

Not in my state. I am looking for a headset that has just one "in ear" bud and a small mic wire. That would be acceptable to most police and would feel safe to me as I could still hear outside noise.

Yes my car is a camera whore!

It's legal in every state for in-car communications, at least on the eastern seaboard. It's not legal for music in every state. I checked because road trips.
