Answering my own question, I ordered the set on Friday and it was delivered on Tuesday and don't forget Monday was a federal holiday.

I installed both sets in about an hour. The Shoei was easy and the Arai was more difficult. They charged quickly and paired easily. Can't wait to try them on the road.

Thanks for the reviews and comments on the Interphone F4. The information posted here along with the web bike review solidified my decision to buy the F4. After installation and a test ride I am extremely pleased with the unit. The clarity of the audio in reception or music playback is outstanding, and the digital processing for the microphone's noise cancellation is quite impressive. My Road King is pretty loud, and with my modular helmet's chin bar down the people I spoke with though I was on a land line. With the chin bar up and the microphone exposed to the wind (albeit behind a windscreen), the callers on the other end could hear some background exhaust noise only when I really jumped on it.

Can't say enough about the quality of posts here!!!

Had mine for a few weeks now. No installation problems in the Aria XD3. Paired with the Sprint Android with no drama and plays flawlessly.

My problems involve speaker placement. Initially, I used a piece of hard Styrofoam to position the speakers closer to my ears. Too close, in fact... It was painful to take on and off...

So now I removed the Styrofoam and put the speakers against the helmet shell. The sound level is not as good.

Does anyone have any ideas on how to attach the speakers so they can "float"? You know, push back into the ear cups when you put on the helmet then spring back out against the ear...

Not trying to high-jack. It is F4 related!

Overall, highly recommended. Got mine from mrhit for $150...

Speaker Spacers

We have Speaker Spacers available in 1/4" and 1/2" thicknesss' they have a soft velcro side and a sticky velcro side, they allow one to space the speakers so they float. After you get the speakers close with some give you might need to purchase a Slick (a doo rag with a cotton exterior and a silk inner liner. This keeps one from folding their ears down when putting the helmet on. Kieth

FYI - For the iPhone crowd: iOS 4.1 Beta includes full AVRCP implementation which means this headset (and many more) can now change tracks as well as control volume and start/stop songs. About time!

i have had speakers in several helmets over the years...

i use this stuff to build up the ear hole to get the speaker close to the ear... also have used it to build up the area between the shell and the cheek pads to get a custom git...

the main thing is to get the speaker lined up with the ear canal... without the speaker touching the ear... especially when looking full right and full left...

dont limit your ability to look through the turn cause your speakers are causing pain... that will get you killed...

Question Would appreciate setup feedback

Looking for feedback please regarding setup. Purchased a pair of F4 Intercoms. Have installed and set them up to work as follows:

Helmet1 to Helmet2 - works well

Zumo GPS to Helmet1 - works well

Phone (iphone 3gs 4.0.1) to Zumo then to Helmet1 - works well

Zumo MP3 music to Helmet1 - works, but sounds distorted and poor quality...

Couple of questions:

1) Given what I have is this the optimal setup or best way to do it? Do I need to purchase anything more to improve?

2) How can I improve the Zumo MP3 music quality?

3) Should I/Can I use the iPhone's inbuilt iPod player for the music source. If so, how do you do that?

Connect a bluetooth dongle to the zumo with a stereo cable, then link the dongle to the stereo in on the F4. Sounds great.

iOS 4.1 Beta includes full AVRCP implementation but not iOS 4.0.1

iOS 4.1 Beta includes full AVRCP implementation, dont be mistaken, the latest release is iOS 4.0.1 not 4.1 and 4.0.1 still does not have full implementation. Who knows how long or if they will actually release iOS 4.1(a full point update) and if it will finally, at release include full AVRCP implementation. We hope so and soon...

F4

I have an Ipod Nano 5th generation and use a Sony Bluetooth Dongle Model # TMR-BT8iP I got at Amazon. It connects wirelessly to the F4 and works relatively well. I have a a Zumo 550 but I only have my Blackberry connected through that to the F4. I have no complaints about this set-up. YMMV...

Can anyone point me to a website for the Wirevo device please, that would ship to the UK? I can't find any dealers over here and it seems to be just about the only device that plugs into a headphone socket and supports AVCRP.

thanks,

UK import fees and all that other stuff

Are there any UK riders here who have purchased from wirelessriders.com in the US? They're obviously cheaper than anywhere here but by the time I get raped by customs is it still worth it? Anyone know how much it will likely be?
