The BLiNC Wireless Bluetooth module is specially designed to easily attach to any motorcycle helmet. BLiNC is an award-winning specialized communication system for motorcycle riders. Now you can do things which used to be impossible while wearing a helmet. Talk on your cell phone, listen to music, get directions from your GPS, and talk with the passenger on the back of your bike or to your riding buddy--all while you’re on the throttle.

Bring Bluetooth 2.0 technology to any make and model of helmet
How BLiNC Can Change Your Ride

Remember yelling, or trying to communicate with hand gestures? No more. Keep your hands on the bars and your eyes on the road while you communicate with incredible clarity thanks to advanced noise reduction technology.

Communicate During the Commute

Don’t miss another call (unless you want to ignore it). You have total control with the push of a button. Incoming calls override intercom, music, or navigation audio.

Enjoy Your Favorite Tunes During the Ride

Bring the music with you and listen to your favorite playlists, podcasts, and more. Control everything with one "Glove Friendly" button. You can play and pause, as well as changing songs and switching sources. Take your favorite tunes along for the ride.

Don’t Let Your Passenger Be a Stranger

Two-way communication with your passenger is now crystal clear. Or if riding with a friend, you can talk with another rider up to 1,500 ft away. Share the ride as it happens or decide where to go on the fly. Getting separated is no longer a problem.

How BLiNC Technology Works

BLiNC innovation paved the way with affordable Bluetooth systems. Helmets featuring integrated BLiNC modules have exploded in popularity but the M1 is even more popular since it attaches to all motorcycle helmets, to bring Bluetooth 2.0 functionality to any rider. Simply use the tools provided and install the ultra-light and weather-resistant module with the 2 customizable speakers and the built-in microphone. The M1 can be assembled as either permanent or removable. The second option makes it easy to switch from helmet to helmet. It’s a powerful communication system in a compact weather resistant case.

On a full charge, the M1 offers a lengthy 4 hours of talk time and 50 hours of standby time, keeping you connected even during long-distance rides.

Easy to Use

All adjustments are easily made with a single control wheel, even with gloves on. The wheel rotates forward and backward, plus the middle is a push button. The center button controls volume, song selection, pairing with devices, etc. It's simple to use, which is critical when riding.

What's in the Box

Just got the M1 in today and had to hook it up right away. I have not rode with it yet but testing it out around the house I noticed these points:
1. There is a slight static in background
2. The volume is GREAT for listening to music
3. The Music continues to play when using Vlingo (Droid Incredible) when it reads txt messages to me so I can't really hear what the "voice" is saying.
4. Tried calling another person and it worked great...they heard me fine and I can hear them perfect (again have not tried this on the road yet).
5. I mounted mine via the clip and holds tight. Might switch to adhesive mount for cleaner look at a later date.
6. Nice Matte Black finish
7. The cord length is fine...had extra I had to tuck into the helmet.
8. I found the user interface a little annoying to get used to...sometimes holding the button down for the "5" seconds didn't turn off and that type of thing...just have to get used to it.

Will update review upon first ride and test with product.

***4/11/2011 Update***
Product is GREAT!
1. You can't hear static when riding.
2. At 80mph could still hear when calling and person on other end could hear perfect. (I did not have wind blocker on helmet)
3. Once I got used to Blinc M1 the user interface works better.
4. Awesome part of product is that when synced to phone (HTC Incredible) the knob on side can be used to switch between songs!! Great for shuffle option on phone!
5. Clip mount works great...has not moved yet!
6. At just $100 I would highly recommend the purchase...can't beat the convenience.

I bought this on a whim because I wanted to be able to listen to music on long rides. I opted for the permanent installation because the clip wouldn't fit my helmet. The clip was too small to fit around the bottom of my helmet (AFX DS-39 Awesome helmet BTW). So I carefully placed the speakers where they would fit comfortably on my ears, routed the wires through the bottom of the helmet and put everything back together. It was great, I had minimal wires showing where they connected to the unit and the speakers were just fine on the comfort scale.

I paired my phone to the unit and started playing some music. IT WORKED! Next, I wanted to test it on the road.

So I have a dual sport bike with a small Enduro tank bag. The tank bag has a velcro piece that sits on top with a clear plastic window that you can slide things in to. This, I figured, would be the perfect place to put my phone as it was the closest location to the bluetooth unit without being tied to my helmet (/joke).

Bottom line, this thing is crap. The phone was no more than 1.5 feet away from my helmet at all times and the signal would cut in and out. I'd rather listen to wind noise. It went a little something like this... 2 seconds of music, silence, 4 seconds of music, 5 seconds of silence, 2 seconds of music... you get the picture.

I could not, in good faith, recommend this to anyone in the market for a bluetooth helmet system. I am either going to sell this piece of junk or try to return it. I am very disappointed but that's what I get for buying the cheapest thing on the market.

PROS:

Paid $99 with free shipping. That's the cheapest one I've seen so far.

Controls are easy to use with gloves on, the dial for changing music tracks is very nice.

Loud. I can hear music at freeway speeds inside my full-face helmet.

People could understand me on the phone at 40mph.

CONS:

No dedicated plug for the charger, shares the same plug as the speaker/microphone assembly. You have to unplug one to plug the other in.

Proprietary charger plug.

The "clip" fastener was useless for me because the plug for the headset wiring sticks out pretty far and it would hit my shoulder and unplug. Using the stick-on mounting plate to place the unit higher on my helmet solved this.

OTHER:

Volume buttons could be bigger but they're adequate.

Play/Pause is handled by holding the "volume down" button for 3 seconds. Odd but acceptable.

It comes with a boom mic, it would have been better with a mic made specifically to go inside a full-face helmet.

I've owned the M1 for about a month now and have done about 250-300 miles using it. It does what it claims to do, which is why I gave it 4/5 stars but there are a few things that are really annoying.

Setup is easy, however, if you own a SHOEI RF1000 Helmet don't expect this unit to fit as easily as you see in the videos on Youtube. Unlike most of the helmets you see portrayed in the demos online the Shoei RF1000 does not allow you to pop out the rear padding of the helmet. I had to shove (with a pencil eraser) the wire between the helmet and the padding till it got stuck up there. So Shoei owners, and people who own helmets with a permanently attached rear padding, beware.

The microphone works great (I can only speak as to full-face helmet use)and up to 60 miles an hour the person on the other line doesn't really notice any difference. You can carry a conversation at 70 MPH but you will be straining a little. The speakers work great but I have a constant low buzz/squeaky noise coming from them when I get a call. I have yet to use this device to listen to music but I imagine you could hear music just fine no matter the speed. I ride a Honda 919 with Sato pipes so if your bike is quiet you could possibly get even better results.

I wish that there was some kind of clip holding the usb cables from the wiring to the unit as over time, I can definitely see the cables just falling out of the unit while going fast.

This is easy to use and setup and works pretty well. I will update this review once I get another m1 to communicate with my wife.
