Interphone F5 MC Stereo Bluetooth Intercom - Twin Pack The Interphone F5MC retains all of the great features of the F5XT and adds Anycom, Auto Reconnection and Song Sharing. Anycom allows the F5MC to communicate with all intercom devices of different brands in full duplex mode (in order to use the Anycom feature, the pairing on the other unit must be done as a phone). With Intercom Auto Reconnection, the F5MC will automatically try to reconnect your intercom after it has gone out out of and back into range. Song Sharing allows the rider and passenger to listen to the same music from a single MP3 audio source. Up to 6 F5MCs can be connected to extend intercom range to up to a mile. The frustration of hearing mysterious beep tones has been eliminated with the Text to Speech (TTS) feature of the F5MC. TTS gives audible voice indications when the intercom connects, disconnects, music plays or pauses, and when a phone call is incoming. The F5MC TTS feature will also tell you who is calling so you can avoid answering the call if desired. Bluetooth 3.0 technology gives the F5MC the longest battery life of any Bluetooth intercom to date. The F5MC features a host of audio options. The hi-fi stereo speakers provide great sound quality for music and intercom. Each F5MC kit includes a 3.5mm audio cable for connection to non-Bluetooth audio devices. A2DP stereo Bluetooth allows high quality music streams from your stereo Bluetooth device to the F5MC. The remote control profile allows you to control playback remotely from the F5MC (with notifications from the headset TTS system). Music functionality if further expanded with the F5MC's built in FM radio. Also an industry first is the forthcoming handlebar remote which will allow control of the headset without ever having to take hands off the handlebars. The F5MC features the most advanced phone options available. Incoming and outgoing calls can be controlled by voice, incoming calls are also announced as the F5MC can read caller information, so there are no surprises when you answer. Multipoint technology also allows two phones to be connected simultaneously (if you have a business and personal line). Advanced DSP algorithms make calls at freeway speeds sound as good as calls made in the living room. Features Pairs in full duplex with up to 5 other headsets for full duplex intercom Can be used with all previous versions of the Interphone (F5XT, F4, F3, F2 and original Interphone) Can pair to any smartphone for music, GPS and phone calls The F5MC also can sync with your phonebook for spoken caller ID Adjusts the speaker volume based on the noise level detected by the microphone. (It may be necessary to disable this feature on full face helmets to obtain full volume) Pairs with popular motorcycle GPS systems for voice guidance Rechargeable lithium ion battery lasts up to 12 hours while the F5MC is in use Stereo speakers provide clean, loud audio A2DP and Bluetooth 3.0 insure the highest quality audio connection AVRCP profile allows the rider to play pause and control tracks from the headset Optional handlebar remote (sold separately) FM Radio features 8 station memory and RDS for spoken station identification Battery can last up to 700 hours of standby when not in use Text to speech eliminates beep tones and replaces them with easy to understand voice prompts If you have custom ring tones, the F5MC will use them instead of using the caller ID feature Firmware update-ready directly from PC (Windows) Specifications Bluetooth 3.0 Battery Life 12 Hours Use Time, up to 700 standby time Charge Time 3 hours Text to speech (TTS) Automatic volume adjustment (AGC) Lithium Ion battery Installs on virtually any helmet Waterproof IP67 approved and completely protected against the effects of temporary immersion and dust Weight 55 grams Included 2-Interphone F5MC module 2-3M adhesive slide support 2-Clamp mount 2-Stereo headsets with detachable speaker connector 2-Detachable Boom Microphones 2-Detachable Soft Wire Microphones (Full face helmets only) 1-USB to 2.5mm cable for mobile charging 1-USB cable (for charging and software upgrades)

I have used this system for 3 years mainly for music streaming via Bluetooth from my smartphone. I have never placed a call but I have received calls. Tone notifies me and music lowers in volume. Caller never has a clue that I am on a motorcycle. When call ends music resumes. Once set up before starting the ride it is truly a hands free system unless I choose to mute or cut off. I would highly recommend.

Have enjoyed this jacket for just two weeks. Have ridden in light rain and stayed bone dry. Amazing amount of airflow as they advertise it literaly feels like riding with just a t-shirt on. I can see at temps of 60 having to use a liner. I now have a peace of mind that I am much more protected in case of a fall and can be seen with the Hi-Viz yellow. I was sold on the Olympia after seeing a buddy's jacket that had taken a slide at 50 mph. No rips or tears. Only visible scuffing. He survived with only minor bruises. Thanks Olympia for the design of this jacket and to Revzilla for the video featuring the jacket and for the quick ship service. Ordered on a Sunday and received jacket within 48 hours
Yes, I recommend this product.
