I figured it out. He will come back tomorrow with
Nope ... not so much. But, a good guess knowing the trials and tribulations of Bluetooth intercoms.
I was wondering if it is the Shark SHKMF6 from Shark Motorcycle Audio. I ran across this system for two complete units $111. It is less than half the cost of Sena and the rest, I only found a few reviews and some good and some not. I was wondering if anyone has ever purchased these. Shark evidently is big in the Motorcycle sound systems and is now doing communication systems. I presently have the J&M elite wired system in both helmets which works great except the connector cables go bad and the price to replace them is ridiculous, and is as much as the bluetooth systems.
We ALMOST have a winner. You got the correct make, just not the model. But each of their models will depend on what your application is. The Shark SHKMF6 doesn't have a feature that I really like on the unit I've selected.
I bought the Shark SHKMAX4-D
. It's a dual-pack ... more on that later. I spent $160 shipped to my door, and the wife and I are extremely pleased with this setup.
With this model, the intercom unit has a Rider
headset port, AND a Passenger
headset port. So, one way that we will be using this setup is that my wife will simply just plug her headset into my unit. We have CONSTANT intercom that is clear as a bell
... AND the Bluetooth music that is being sent to my intercom can easily be heard by her when I simply toggle a switch on the bottom of the unit. Yes, the cord connecting our helmets defeats the purpose of being entirely wireless, but the benefit far out-weighs the cost. AND, while we're using one unit, the other unit can be charging in the tankbag.
We also tested the units as two separate Bluetooth intercoms and the functionality was, again, very impressive. The only thing we couldn't do was share music from one Bluetooth music source. That is easily remedied with a KOKKIA A10m MULTI-STREAM Bluetooth Stereo Transmitter
if you feel the need to go that route. We're going to try living without it, because I don't want to have to change yet another device.
Well, there you have it. We're headed down to the Smoky Mountains next week ... I'll submit a full review after that trip.
