Need some advice..

So I bought this wireless radio headset so that I can communicate with other motorcycle riders and the ear pieces are to big and cumbersome for me (re: my fat heads won't fit into the helmet very well with these ear pieces).

Here is a picture of what I'm talking about.





I'm thinking about cutting out the ear pieces and replacing them with some in ear pieces that would fit better and probably isolate wind noise out and give me better sound quality to boot. My question is, does anyone foresee any problems with cutting and splicing these wires? Just looking at them it appears that the ones that are on there right now are of a thicker gauge wire. Should that be an issue?

They dont appear to be a stereo style (left and right) style speaker. I dont see any problems with cutting and splicing(as long as you do it the right way) smaller speakers. As long as there is a volume control on the unit. I forsee no problems.



in my ex-home theatre/low voltage electrician eyes.

You can cut and splice but the wires are tiny.

I'm going to give it a try this coming weekend as I'm not comfortable with those speakers at all. Going to do it right so I need to go buy a solder gun as I haven't used mine in years and can't find it now. There is a big difference in the gauge though so I hope it does affect anything.
