Thanks

The Ultras come with a headset and you plug it in to the tank console. It's a hardwire system, not Bluetooth.

Any idea what parts would be required to fit this type of system to a Street Glide?

This headset, is it a 9 pin connector?

Thanks

No it is a 7 pin connector. To get the function you will need to purchase and install a Communications kit from HD. Make sure to think about whether you will want to add a CB on later. There are two kits and one ONLY does the Music/Intercom, and the other kits has provision for the CB as well. If you decide to add the CB later and had already installed the Music kit you will have to buy the other kit, leaving you with BOTH of the kits. Read on HD's site:

With the 7 pin plug, does that mean I'm stuck using only the HD/Boom headphones? What's the sound quality of these? Would I be better off with some type of high-end ear buds?

I'm not concerned with CB function, or even rider to passenger communication. My Street Glide is going to get the HD XM module and Ipod interface.

Ultimately, I would just like my passenger and myself to be able to listen to the HD radio through headphones (with separate volume controls).

Can this be done?

Thanks

Iron Cross audio repairs the HK radios as well as adds a external headset jack and you could then use a bluetooth headset up for both you and the passenger or a hardwired setup. I have been thinking about this setup or maybe the HD set up but the Iron cross set up intriges me. Maybe someone whom has experience with the Iron cross setup can speak on this option. I have not had time to contact Iron cross to inquire. Good Luck

You can send your radio into iron cross. I think they can install a headphone out jack on it. You could then use a y splitter to have two 1/8 jacks out and use an inline volume control to adjust independent volume for you and a passenger.

I have considered just adding a speaker switch that cuts out the fairing speakers and transfers the signal to an outlet for the ear buds. My concern is will the signal to the 2 ohm fairing speakers blow out the ear bud speakers?
