Default Headsets - what do you think

What do you think about headsets? Good, bad, a waste of money, I wouldn't be without them, whatever....

we use ours all the time unless it's a very short drive. We have a portable system. We talk at normal converstaion levels and can run the stereo throught them. Just like riding in a car.

I've got a 4-place portable setup with four headsets. I also have a fixed-mount 6-place intercom that I'm building the harness on right now. I'll install it this spring.

I used some for the first time this weekend. They're pretty cool. I was in the back and there was too much wind noise and the mic wouldn't stay in place, so I took it off for the rest of the run.

Like'em, You can actually have a conversation while riding in the boat. On mine, you can hear the stereo and VHF radio.
