Never even heard of it. Interesting that it doesn't require speakers. I'd be curious to see how well the "uses your helmet for sound" thing actually works. It is still bluetooth, so it'll have most of the same issues as the SENA and Cardo units.

I've been looking at the HEADTOOTH units, mostly because they use RF instead of bluetooth (despite the name). Haven't tried either one, obviously. Would definitely be interested to hear more about both.

I always find it interesting to find "the #1 rated" communications system that I've never heard of even after just completing a fairly extensive search and ending up with a Cardo unit. Might tie in with their "unlimited range" blue tooth.

The technology isn't new for using a media other than speakers to produce sounds. It's been around in the world of home audio for ages. You basically connect the voice coil with whatever you want the sound to come from and do a bunch of electronic processing to get reasonable sound out of it.

#1 rated, unlimited range, and 50-10.500Hz frequency range and no stereo sound... Ok for gps or intercom, but not for music listening.
And quite expensive too.

You can get a Cardo Packtalk Black or Sena 50R/50S for that kind of money.

You know... helmet mfrs went to great lengths to design shells that are excellent to dissipating energy in a crash. Here is are folks that make a vibrator that tries to excite that shell to make sound energy. Hmm...

Besides, the acoustic response of a multilayered composite fiberglass shell (like Shoei) is a whole lot different than that of a homogeneous polycarbonate shell (like Shark). Interesting idea, but I think I'll stick with my Uclear.

Since it uses your helmet's shell as a speaker I'm going to bet the sound quality is going to sound like how hot garbage smells. Shell materials/sizes differ from helmet make to model. For $270 you can get a pair of those really nice noise-cancelling, wireless earbuds that will have way better sound quality and work when you take your helmet off.

I have not tried it so I don't know.
Have you tried it ?

I've not tried it. I use my Airpods Pro and a handlebar mounted remote for music under my helmet.
Impressive. How did you put on your helmet with the ear-buds in your ears without the ear-buds crushing your ears ?

Modular helmet with the speaker foam removed. You can flip the chinbar up and open the helmet up enough to not knock the headphones out of your ears.
Got it.
I'm using full-face helmets. No wonder!

I saw these and like Factor5Fighter, I'd imagine they sound like hot garbage smells. lmao Can't wait to hear someone's honest review on these.

If you like true hi-fi sound I can't imagine this would deliver. I know folks are trying to get away from wires but I have not found anything that comes remotely close to good wired earbuds for riding with. I use Etymotic ER2XR earbuds with the large triple-flange ear pieces connected directly to my phone while commuting or plugged into my Autocom which gets commercial grade 2-way radio (with several mile range), GPS and phone all connected through a Bluetooth adapter when I'm on long rides with my riding crew. These earbuds block out almost as much outside noise as a good pair of properly inserted 32db foam earplugs. I can keep everything turned down low and get fantastic sound out of everything. Being able to clearly hear and understand everything being said at any speed on the 2-ways is awesome but the best part is being able to clearly listen to true hi-fi music with very little outside noise.

I have a set of Etymotic ER 6's that I could never get to fit well in my ears (I have small ear canals) and be comfortable under my helmet, so for many years (since 2009) I have been using Big Ear dual transducer custom molded ear speakers. They are pricey, but super comfortable with great stereo sound and noise reduction--they also don't get knocked out of my ears when I put on my helmet. I just plug them into a small bluetooth receiver that I keep in my inside jacket pocket and pair it to a small bluetooth transmitter velcro'd to the top of my radar detector or directly to my Garmin 665LM GPS or phone. I also have a Mix-It amplifier in the dash cubby of my FJR that has the same bluetooth transmitter plugged into the audio-out port and my radar detector and GPS plugged into the audio-in ports.

Ive never has a sensitive ear for music , but I'm with you on the wired vs wireless. The wired is easier to deal with....but my stupid Galaxy phone doesn't have the wire port. I need an adapter. That's fine, but then you can't charge.

However, it does have 72 different cameras in the upper corner. I could film a mid level porn shoot with it, but I can't plug in a headphone?

I hear you. I think most folks have an issue with fit and keeping earbuds in their ears with helmets. I went through a LOT of earbuds before I found a pair that worked well for me. The trick was finding some that were deep enough to seal the ear canal and comfortable enough to wear for prolonged periods. They are a bit of a pain and I hate it when I snag a wire and jar one loose. Your setup sounds sweet! I've tried 3 different custom molded jobs. None of them worked for me and I gave up on them.

Yep. Stupid, right?

I used to wear ear buds and they did hurt after a couple of hours. I upgraded with the new bike to a RF1400 with a cardo slim.
love the sound it produces. Voice control works surprisingly well. Also it wakes up Siri
Music is really really clear and it’s a pretty quiet helmet with all vents closed. I added a Puig racing windscreen to attempt to hide behind the noisy air, It helps, but no where near as quiet like behind a big shield on a Harley road king.

Kenors Is correct , not new technology . Honda uses this for their exterior bed liner speaker in the Ridgeline. It’s really nice, u can plug 120v in the bed and run a led tv and Bluetooth the music to the bed. Great Vehicle for tail gateing.

RC ,
You can get a Bluetooth head phone adapter that you plug wire ear buds into. I just ordered it on Amazon. Now you can charge again,

That's the one I've been using for a few years now. It works well, but the voice prompts have failed after a while, so I just toss it and buy another for $12.
