I got https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B009XD35OI/ and 2x https://www.ebay.com/itm/NEW-C20G-COBRA-PILOT-AVIATION-HEADSET-GREEN/330889916607?epid=1441181347&hash=item4d0a9370bf:g:GOYAAOSwE0JY9atu&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.

Is it legal to wear headsets ???
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.
