What does an intercom system mean?

A helmet intercom system traditionally consists of a speaker placed close to your ears, a microphone on your chin, and the cables or lines connecting them, which run beneath the helmet's cellular lining. It has a lot in common with a Bluetooth headset, but it has an extra wireless communication feature, which no need for mobiles or the internet, simply just connecting with the other motorcycle helmet intercom systems through Bluetooth tech.

What is a helmet earphone like Moman H4?

Moman H4 wireless helmet earphone is similar to our usual headphones for listening to songs and Bluetooth headphones for cell phones, such as AirPods, but the earphone for motorcycle helmets has different characteristics in shape and operation design. Also with the different Bluetooth tech compared to common headphones, Moman H4 can connect with intercoms like Moman H1 for speaking, since they are using the same BT 5.0.

The usual earphone is mostly in-ear, but this does not apply to the rider. The helmet headset is designed to be flat and with a foam shape, and it is attached to the inner part of the helmet where the ears are, because the helmet, which serves as protection, wraps around the head tightly. Meanwhile, the speaker is designed as a boom mic that reaches up to your mouth. Moman H4's speaker has a few buttons for easy access.

Moman H4 is a wireless headset for motorbike helmet. It provides comfortable wearing and hearing during rides, races, and other intense sports like biking, skiing, and jumping.

Connection: Wired vs wireless motorcycle intercom systems, which is better?

All four Moman products use wireless Bluetooth technology, which is the most common method used in modern walkie-talkies today. Differences in BT tech may result in miscommunication between devices.

What can wireless motocycle communicators do and what tech do they use?

The majority of contemporary motorcycle intercoms communicate wirelessly to other intercoms, cellphones, GPS systems, and other Bluetooth-capable devices via Bluetooth technology. Riders may now electronically and hands-free communicate. The wireless types' phone call and music streaming features are not available with the wired ones. The U.S. motorcycle intercom industry is dominated by Bluetooth and Mesh, two major wireless technologies.

What do the wired motorcycle intercom systems look like?

The popularity of wired intercoms has decreased as motorcycle technology advances in favor of wireless alternatives, mostly because of their short range and restriction to rider-to-passenger communication. Wired systems continue to be the most cost-effective choice for allowing communication between a rider and a passenger. It's vital to be aware that some devices could not have noise-canceling capabilities, making them only appropriate for quick chats.

Moman H2 motorcycle Bluetooth systems can pair 6 pieces of intercom devices at one time for motorcycle group talking.
