Sena TuffTalk products have been removed from all European and UK markets.

I have a product that I am currently testing which may answer all the needs of the Caterham owner. Watch this space!

Doug,

I would be really interested in what you are testing. I suffer from tinnitus which is exacerbated after driving even with ear plugs and modified Peltor ear defenders, so am really keen to try active noise cancelling headset (ideally wireless). I did contact Sabre leisure a few weeks ago who supply SPH10 headsets and they said they may be able to source Tufftalk headsets but I haven't followed that up yet. Do you know how long before your trial will be completed?

Hi Jason

Just realised that I mailed this response to the club website help address! Here is what I sent - repeats some of what has been said since your post - apologies.....


My DIY headsets work very well in the 'cockpit' and even between cars if one stays close! They connect ok to my phone, but I could not get them to work with my satnav and/or the walkie talkies. Very poor instructions compared to the Sena stuff so difficult to know what they can actually do. But sound quality great.


I got my TuffTalks in the UK a while ago - but have also heard that they are not readily available at the moment - although I am pretty sure Alan Reeves had a price from ‘brillbikebitz’ on ebay recently - they are too expensive for what they are though, so I suspect they do not sell well for that reason!?


PTT is on the side of the TuffTalk headset if you plug the walkie talkie into the headset. I have not used them like this as I use the Sena SR10 unit which is bluetooth and has its own PTT button and an extension - I fix mine to the handbrake - you still have to take your hand off the steering wheel though!


Only used mine with a screen so cannot comment on aero!

Going to do a bit of research on Zello to try and understand how that works.


Good luck.
Garth

Thanks Garth. Buying things would be so easy if companies would just make exactly what I want ;)

Used zello with a cheap Bluetooth camera button as PTT velcroed to steering wheel.

Thanks for the kind words Garth. This will be a joint effort between JAL and a very experienced communications company. As always I try to solve problems that I have as a Caterham owner. I have tried three different types of comms systems for my Caterham and found them all either inadequate for the job and/or too difficult to install. I do not want 10 wires to make a system work!

Doug,

I tried to contact Sena 6 times via various methods and was totally ignored. I finally used their support 'chat' service and was told that they could not help me with TuffTalk products at this time. I am not sure what is happening with them at the moment as even their European phone number goes through to the wrong company! I spoke to several Sena distributors who said that the TuffTalk range had been removed from the UK and European markets for the foreseeable future. No word as to why this has happened but a breech in legislation was suspected, (distributors words not mine).

I also suffer from tinnitus Tony so I feel your frustration. Caterhams do not help the situation at all. I have headsets on test with Caterham owners now and we are addressing various needs. Brief specification:

  • Stereo headphones with comfortable gel ear seals (designed to be worn for lengthy periods as they do not squeeze your head)
  • Electronic noise filtering
  • Double skinned ear defenders. (Tests so far show these cut out more ambient noise, up to 3 times quieter than other headsets. )
  • Bluetooth - for stereo music and telephone calls
  • Military grade waterproof noise cancelling mic with wind muff
  • Built in Rechargeable battery
  • Works with any PMR radio
  • PTT button built in (optional remote PTT button)

It is early days but testing is being performed as we speak. Fingers crossed the product will be launched very soon.

Doug
