Harley's First Modular With Bluetooth

I have been trying different helmets for awhile and though they all had features I like but weren't exactly what I wanted.

 This is the first modular helmet I have owned and I like the ease of putting it on and off and that's the main reason I got it.
   
I ended up going to Teddy Morse’s Harley-Davidson (Destination Daytona) and tried on a bunch of helmets, before I decided on this one.

 

OH YEAH, It had Bluetooth – The second reason.

I have grown to like having speakers in my helmet especially when I am traveling, and this system is the one I like the most. Getting spoiled in my old age? YEAH, but I think I earned it.

 Here is a bunch of tech information on what’s included.

  • Bluetooth Specifications: Equipped with Bluetooth 4.1, it supports the Headset Profile (HSP)Hands-Free Profile (HFP)Advanced Audio Distribution Profile (A2DP), and Audio Video Remote Control Profile (AVRCP). It also features Advanced Noise Control and wind noise reduction. The working distance is up to 900 meters (0.5 miles) in open terrain, and it can connect with up to 4 riders. Additionally, it has a built-in FM radio with RDS AF (Radio Data System Alternate Frequencies).

Integrated speakers and a microphone are built in, along with hi-definition speakers for better bass and sound quality. It even includes a built-in FM radio and comes with a rechargeable battery and charger.

Even though the helmet came with a charged Bluetooth I used the charging cord that came with to make sure it was fully charged. Just something I always do.

While that was happening I watched a couple of videos about how to make it pair to my motorcycle and cell phone. Even if you had paired systems before I always read the instructions and watch the videos, because sometimes there are new procedures and or updates.

The videos are at the bottom of the link to the helmet listed below.

 As it turned out, I was scheduled to go out of town the day after I got the helmet and set it up. It is now my favorite helmet. It is available in Matte Black and Matte Silver. I got the Matte Black one.

 I personally like several Outrush R components, the Micro Ratchet Chin Strap that replaces the double D-Ring style, Flip down sun visor, air vents and the fact it has a removable and washable liner.

 

I am still riding all over the country in all kinds of weather and this helmet is going to do all the things I want and make the ride more enjoyable. LOVIN' LIFE!

Will this also come out in gloss black. It sounds like a great helmet I have one almost just like it but I would like one with the Bluetooth.
