bluetooth headsets? - May 9, 2012, 09:26 AM

anybody have recommendations on bluetooth headset?

looking for easy and reliable pairing with iphone and garmin, and maybe an accessory jack for ipod input.


sure would be nice to be able to hear the gps prompts and not have to look at the screen so much...


probably will not get much use as an intercom, but if its compatible with other systems, that may be a plus on group rides.


was looking at shark units- mostly on price. reviews seem mostly positive.


thoughts/ suggestions? thanks


!advance the agenda!

Sara and I use the Chatter Box XBI2 units. IIRC, it was a bit of a pain to set up, but call clarity and rider-to-rider communications are great. Haven't connected to an iPod or anything for music, but I would assume it would be just as easy and good music clarity.

Im still rocking my chatterbox. Chatterbox XBi is what I used for my phone and music. Listen to music, music stops when call comes in, gps gives directions...lasts all day.

Definitely Sena.

I think there's a discounted group buy thing on advrider somewhere...

Todd can actually have clear phone calls while riding his BMW. Me not so much because of the wind noise on the CBR but he says I am understandable. I believe he bluetooths his iPhone to the Garmin and the Garmin to the Sena so that way the Garmin can interrupt the music to give the prompts.

I just use mine to listen to stuff on my iPhone.

As for communicators, they're easy to use but it seems like you have to physically disconnect from the conversation. IDK if it's just something I've missed in the settings but it's not really a big deal. But if I don't disconnect during conversation lulls, I get silence and he gets to listen to wind noise.

I use a Sena SMH10. The new firmware will let you pair both music/phone and gps at the same time. It's the best comm system I've used yet (Includes Autocom, Starcom, IMC, Chatterbox, Cardo and Sena)

I use the Blueant Interphone F4 and love it. The speakers are well made and sound great. I previously had a Cardo Scala Rider G9 and kept having speaker issues so I sold it. The Blueant pairs up with GPS, phone and music. I never tested the GPS functionality though but use the music and phone every time I ride.

Are you guys wearing ear plugs while using these systems? If so, how does it affect the sound?

I wear ear plugs and most times just have the volume all the way up. In some cases I can turn the volume down and still hear it just fine.

Brendan, I have a Scala Rider Q2 that I'll let go if you're interested. Can't hear shyt over this exhaust so no point in keeping it.

Hit me up and I can give you all the details.

I've had a Cardo scala rider Solo for about two years. I've never needed to talk with other riders but my job is on an 'on call' basis so I can't miss calls. Works fine for me, calls are clear. My music is separate but I hear the phone over the music. I have a volume control in the player's line and can turn down the music if I need to.

The smh10 has a base that let's me use motorcycle specific ear buds. Cuts out the highs and lows while allowing me to listen to the music at a good volume

You mind sharing what earphones you use, and if you use and amp?
