I agree with the idea of putting safety first when choosing a helmet. However, that being said...

Having intercom in your helmet can add to your safety as well. If you find yourself riding with others you will need to communicate, either by using hand signals or speaking over an intercom. Speaking with a passenger on your bike can be a serious distraction without intercom. In both instances an intercom makes much more sense and is safer.

Buying a helmet that is designed to install an intercom system does not mean the helmet isn't safe. it just means that you can install a system in it when you're ready. If you are interested in an intercom now or possibly in the future it would be wise to purchase a helmet that is Bluetooth ready. Otherwise you will end up needing to buy a different helmet which will dramatically increase the overall cost of installing an intercom system. Makes sense when you think about it.
