What Factors To Keep In Mind While Buying Helmet Intercoms
1. GPS Capabilities
This is one of the most important factors you need to consider while buying a motorcycle intercom because this will help you to navigate places unknown to you. This will also help your group to stick together, and you can even see when some member gets lost. This will help you track them down or even guide them back to you.
Some of these GPS systems even provide voice evocations navigation which makes it easier to ride without taking your eyes off the road. This also makes the ride much safer as you wouldn’t have to look at your screen every now and then. So make sure the intercom system that you are going for has GPS navigation functionalities.
2. Ease Of Use
We would recommend simple intercoms if you have no prior experience of using one. That’s because you will be using this device while riding, and for beginners, this might be pretty distracting. A more complicated intercom system beats the very purpose of making the ride safe. So keep that in mind while going for an intercom system.
Don’t get fascinated by the complexity of the system as it will take your eyes off the road, which can be pretty dangerous. That’s why you should always look for an intercom system that is very easy to use and help you get your work done easily.
3. Multiple Connection Capabilities
This is an important factor, as well. That’s because you will want to connect with as many of your fellow riders as possible. This makes your group more secure and keeps you all glued together, even if you are navigating through unknown regions.
Most of the intercom systems provide you with the basic 2 to 4 connections simultaneously, but some are designed to allow up to 15 connections. So if you have a large group, then you should go for the latter.
But with the increase in connection capabilities, the price also goes up significantly. So you need to consider your budget and look for the maximum number of connections available within your price range.
4. Weatherproof Capabilities
You have no control over the weather when you are on a long trip, and you don’t want that to ruin the communication between you and your buddies. So check if the intercom system you are going for is whether sealed or not. If there is a sudden downpour, you can rest assured that your communication system is intact.
But you need to keep in mind that waterproof and water-resistant are two different types of protections that come with any communication device. Water-resistant devices come with a lower price tag and can provide you with limited protection. Waterproof, on the other hand, provide you with better protection.
It can take heavy rainfall without getting damaged. You can never guess the weather, so you should have the best protection at your disposal. We recommend waterproof intercom systems as they are the best option when it comes to motorcycles.
5. Noise Cancellation
You can get the full benefit of your intercom system when you can communicate with your fellow riders effectively without taking your eyes off the road. even with good quality headsets, this can become a problem when you are in the middle of noisy traffic.
But there are some products out there that provide noise cancellation so that your communication becomes more efficient and hassle-free. So you should definitely keep this in mind while buying the best motorcycle intercom systems, but it is also going to come with a greater price tag.
6. Fix Your Budget
This is one of the most important things to keep in mind when considering this kind of product. That’s because, when you pay more you get more functionalities and vice versa. So if you want more functionality, the price tag also becomes bigger, and after a point, it’s just going to cost you a fortune to get one of these.
The best way to go about it is to fix your budget and get a communication system within that constraint. And get the best available products within that price range, you should go through numerous reviews before speaking one.
Now with all these points in mind, let’s take a look at the top intercom systems available in the market.
