The much anticipated F5 Bluetooth® motorcycle headset is now available in the United States. The F5, along with a variety of other exciting INTERPHONE products previously inaccessible to the US market, will be available through INTERPHONE USA - http://www.interphoneusa.com. The F5 couples superior functionality with innovative features and capabilities, many of which were unattainable prior to its release. Aside from its advanced performance capabilities, the F5 has a sleek design and an impressive feel of overall quality that is sure to send shock waves through the motorcycle industry. The F5 will be available in a single pack ($299) and a twin pack ($499).
Bluetooth® 3.0 - The F5 raises the bar, being the first motorcycle intercom system to utilize Bluetooth® 3.0. The use of this advanced version of Bluetooth® allows for faster and clearer transmission of audio data. Bluetooth® 3.0 also provides users with exceptionally fast movement between different F5 functions.
Six-Rider Communication - Another pioneering facet of the F5 lies in its conference-style communication capacity. The F5 is the first Bluetooth® motorcycle intercom system that allows up to six riders to communicate in full duplex “conference-style” bike-to-bike. The intercom range of the F5 starts at 0.8 miles between two riders and reaches a maximum of 1.49 miles when six riders are paired together. The F5 is also the only Bluetooth® headset that can pair to two smartphones simultaneously when in single user mode.
Text to Speech - The F5 is equipped with Text to Speech (TTS) capability, giving riders hands-free voice control functionality while on the road. The ability of a rider to communicate hands-free with whomever they choose greatly increases the overall safety and ease of using a Bluetooth® communication device while operating a motorcycle.
Automatic Gain Control - The incorporation of highly advanced Automatic Gain Control (AGC) technology gives the F5 the ability to automatically adjust its audio volume based on a rider’s immediate environmental surroundings, including wind noise, engine noise and road noise.
Built-in FM Radio - The F5 is equipped with a built-in RDS FM radio and is the first Bluetooth® motorcycle intercom system to offer an impressive eight station memory. The option of an eight station memory allows riders to safely and easily locate their favorite radio stations without having to physically scan through stations while on the road.
A2DP Stereo Bluetooth® - The sound quality for the F5 is nothing short of remarkable. It uses A2DP Stereo Bluetooth® technology to relay audio through hi-fi stereo speakers. The option to hardwire the F5 to any desired audio player through the device’s 3.5mm port gives users yet another option when deciding how they want to connect to their external devices.
Microphone - The F5 kit includes both a noise-canceling boom microphone and a full-face helmet-style soft microphone. Both microphone options incorporate DSP noise suppression to further enhance the sound quality and clarity of the rider’s voice when communicating.
Another key design feature of the F5 is its upgradable firmware. This ensures that the F5 will not become obsolete in the near future by allowing users to upload new F5 software releases as they become available by simply plugging the F5 into a computer and downloading the new software updates from INTERPHONE’s Website.
Waterproof Bluetooth® Module - The Bluetooth® control module is impressively small, measuring 9cm x 4.5cm x 2cm and is the only headset that has waterproof certification - IP67 waterproof certified. The waterproof design also provides superior protection against the dust and dirt that Bluetooth® motorcycle headsets are exposed to on a constant basis.
Wireless Handlebar Mount – The F5 is the only Bluetooth® motorcycle communication system that offers a wireless push-to-talk handlebar control. This feature greatly increases the F5’s usability and safety. (sold separately, available soon)
Universal Helmet Mount – INTERPHONE utilizes a universal helmet mounting clamp that allows the F5 to be compatible with helmet from most manufacturers. Users can either use a two-piece “alligator-style” clamp to attach the system to the side of their helmet or they can utilize the adhesive-mount option.
Battery - In terms of hardware, the F5 has a long-lasting lithium polymer battery with approximately 11 hours of talk time and close to 700 hours of stand-by time. The battery takes only about three hours to fully recharge.
