    I just purchased a '97 FLHTCI-I which has a good sound system, intercom and CB. I do not have the headsets (I do have Starcom1 headsets for my BMW, but they are not adaptable). The Harley manual states "will accept an industry standard five-pin DIN helmet system." At Harley, they are about $180 per headset!!).
    QUESTION: Do I have any options?

    Try jmcorp. I haven't used the product so can't vouch for them.

    I am not cleared to post URL's yet but google will get you there

    EVERYBODY has options and are cheaper than the Harley approved sold items:D.

    Harley buys the Battery tender brand and marks it up and packages it as theirs, also the heated gear a lot of times is the Gerbing gear at a higher price too.

    With the advent of "multi-media" makes more sense to go with Bluetooth wireless technology. This is the time to think of your long term solutions, rather than going down the old 5 pin DIN wiring that was used in the '70's with all the attendant broken wires, unadvertent un-plugging and pain that goes with it...JIMHO...:small3d009:...he thinks so too!
