Upgrading to Quiet Ride headphone ear muffs

Quiet Ride HD helmet speaker that is Velcroed into ear noise reduction muffs. Helmet speaker sound quality is good for communication, but not good for listening to music.

Remove tape from speaker line connector just outside of ear muff to disconnect. For some reason connection is loose in cold weather so I have been taping this connection to assure it does not come disconnected cold weather.

Stick fingers under ear muff to separate Velcro on bottom of ear muff cup from Velcro glued to air bladder. If Velcro becomes unstuck to latex rubber bladder glue back on with "Goop" silicone product or buy a small piece of 2" Hook Velcro from hardware store and stick onto latex air bladder.

Connector has one wrap of electricians tape around connector to make sure it does not wiggle loose. Speaker line connector just outside of ear muff can come apart on its own in cold weather. I suggest retaping connection with electricians tape once around connector to make sure connector does not come apart in future.
