I have three of these sets and they seem to work well. I've never owned any other types though. The comments about the poor/weak connector design which causes them to fail prematurely is true. After replacing two cords I installed them by forming a loop and securing it under the speaker cords. This puts the stress further down the cord on a straight part away from the L-connector and makes them last much longer. Shouldn't have to do that though.
I've been using J&M products since 1998 and i have no issues with their sound quality and mic performance. This 279 headset works great in my Shoe flip front helmet and the sound quality is good.
The only snag with all the J&M headsets is the position of the upper cord when connected to the helmet - because it protrudes below the helmet it gets alot of pressure everytime we put our helmet down the cord eventually fails. The wires inside the angled connector are strained and eventually they break, the cord then needs to be replaced. Other than that the headsets are great.
And we can't wait to show you how it's done!
