A traditional in-ear Bluetooth device is pretty much useless when it comes to activities that require you to wear a helmet, like say, riding a motorcycle. But BlueAnt’s Stereo F4 Interphone kit features a weatherproof Bluetooth device that sits on the outside of a helmet, with a set of thin headphones and a mic that sit inside. The F4 pairs up to 8 different Bluetooth devices allowing you to make and receive calls on 2 different phones, hear audio directions from a GPS navigation device and even listen to music streamed over A2DP from an MP3 player.
BlueAnt claims the microphone still works at speeds up to 110mph, and if you’re riding with a buddy the device also includes a bike-to-bike intercom mode allowing you to keep in touch up to a distance of 1,640 feet. Available now from the BlueAnt online store for $225.
