Nolan N-Com Basic Kit 2 For basic N-COM communication and audio, each helmet must be equipped with a Basic Kit. It includes earphones, a microphone, and two short wires (that hang from the underside of the helmet, and allow you to plug in various devices). The Basic Kit will permit you to listen to your music player, radar detector, GPS unit, etc., and talk on your cell phone, but you must control volume on the source device and answer the phone by pressing the controls on the phone. For connecting to external audio and communications devices, a Multimedia Wire and/or Cell Phone Wire is needed. Installs in minutes without any tools or modifications. For on-helmet volume adjustment and phone answering, E-Box Control and Pillion Communication Kits are available as well Read more in our Nolan N-COM Communication System Buyers Guide Note N103/N43 Gold Wing Kit includes lower cord for use with the audio system of a Honda GL1800.

The product instructions could be better and a relevant N85 online installation video would be helpful.
The sound and microphone quality is excellent but utilization at anything over 60 KPH becomes moot due to wind noise.
Works great to make phone calls and listen to music at slow speeds.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Nolan N85 Helmet - Solid Colors The N85 is the new full-face street helmet by Nolan fairly small, with a bold, sporty design. The result of accurate volumetric tests, this helmet is equipped with a perfectly integrated sunscreen (VPS) inside the shell. The quick-change/tool-free visor mechanism operates only with the visor in the open position avoiding accidental opening while riding. Features Lightweight aerodynamic polycarbonate shell with built-in spoiler Nolan's VPS (Vision Protection System) actuates internal sun shield Fully removable, washable Clima-Comfort Interior, treated to be anti-fungal and anti-microbial Removable cheek pads Removable chin curtain Dual top vents with exhaust in rear spoiler Chin vents direct air to face shield to help prevent fogging Optically correct, push button quick change shield offers UV400 protection Included Pinlock-ready face shield with clear Pinlock insert Nolan micro lock retention system Meets or exceeds DOT standards

With its interior visor, quick change exterior visor mechanism, communication adaptability, quick release chin strap, included "Pinlock" visor and excellent finish...for the price its tough to beat.
It's only average in terms of comfort, airflow and noise but keep in mind it's an entry level helmet.
If you are needing to remove the communication cover I would suggest removing the left cheek-pad and disengaging the clip with a screwdriver from the inside as the exterior clip mechanism is poorly engineered.
The optional Nolan "basickit 2" is well thought out and sounds great...I am very impressed with the quality of the microphone.
Again, for the price...its hard to complain but I would suggest it would cost little more to provide more comfortable cheek-pad material and additional care in ensuring the rear sizing sticker are placed on straight instead of carelessly slapped on.
Yes, I recommend this product.
