No. It takes an integrated headset. Here's some info that may help you.https://www.danscomp.com/serve-PARTS/...adsetchart.htm **Edit: i'm talking about new/recent Reasons. Perhaps there are earlier models that took standard headsets, but I doubt it. BMX moved to integrated and internal headsets a while ago.
