I'll check that, John - thanks. However, the Baehr has 4 simple inputs. IIRC, the only difference between them is their "priority". Maybe something in the manual addresses the problem.
I checked a copy of the Baehr owner's manual. Below is the text that speaks to the 4 universal interfaces. I don't see a solution here...
"These are the
4 UNIVERSAL INTERFACES of your K1200LT.
Each interface can be connected to almost any Mobile phone, radio, receiving or recording device with the corresponding adapter cable.
All signal input interfaces are designed for stereo. Although the output signal is exclusively the microphone’s signal of the driver’s helmet (the driver’s voice). The level of this signal can be independently adjusted for each of the connected devices. This is often particularly necessary, as devices are very different and even in radios of the same brand these levels can differ.
: Your Mobile phone is connected to interface 2. During a call your dialog partner might mention that he cannot hear you properly. You can now (and in the future) simply speak louder or you can, on your next stop, turn the regulator slightly to the right and wait what your next caller thinks of talking to you while you ride your bike.
All interfaces are fitted with identical 6-pin plugs, but have different priority settings (
automatic priority!) this prevents interference of simultaneously incoming signals. An incoming signal on a higher priority interface will so automatically inhibit signals with lower priority. You can freely choose, by changing the interfaces, which of the signals (meaning devices) gets priority.
As not to confuse you (and us) completely, following is the simplified correlation:
has priority 1, which means antecedence to all other signals
has priority 2, which means antecedence to 3 and 4 but not to 1.
has priority 3, which means antecedence to 4 but not to 1 and 2.
has priority 4, which means antecedence only to listening to music but not to the other interfaces.
If you intend to connect different devices you should find an interface seizure that makes sense for
your needs. Here is some helpful advise from our own (subjective) point of view:
For some of us the constant reachability of the Mobile phone has become very important.
But the message of your friend driving in front of you: "Caution! Gravel in curve!" might - at that moment - be much more important for you than any urgent phone call. And your partner on the Mobile phone will certainly be more willing to repeat part of the conversation. The gravel might not make any compromises.
with priority 1 has, as already mentioned, absolute priority. It is the only interface where incoming signals even suppress the internal communication with your pillion short term. A further reason to connect a radio device with its generally slightly worse transfer qualities is that if you lower the volume of the helmet microphones, the wind noise will also decrease and thus make the ‘emergency message’ even clearer to hear.
The driver’s output signal will not be affected by these automatisms and is available for all interfaces at all times.
In general, you should not overrate the priority settings. This whole technique only takes effect when 2 or more signals arrive absolutely
simultaneous. Normally, driver and pillion will hear only what is.
Unassigned interfaces will stay passive. If you leave one of the middle interfaces empty, the priorities of the lower ones will go up one level. "
