Why We Picked It:
Sometimes you just want to get a leg over your bike, hit the open road, and rock out. One of the biggest complaints people have with the big-name Bluetooth systems is always the sound quality. Either they just aren’t loud enough to overcome the road noise, have no bass response, or the sound just is poor overall.
Earbuds can work for some but can be uncomfortable. What can a rider do that just wants to turn it up and ride? Syphon has you covered with the SoundPro setup for your helmet.
The SoundPro system is a simple dial unit and 2 robust speakers with built-in microphones. Mount the control unit to the side of your helmet, fit the speakers and you are good to go. Bluetooth 5.0 easily pairs with your phone and allows Siri or Google hands-free functionality. The control unit is an intuitive dial, with easy-to-control volume and function controls.
When it comes to features there is really just one, the sound. The Syphon SoundPro system can go loud. You have all the output you would ever want, with better bass than most systems.
Now generally I would be down on loudness under a helmet, but in this case, the SoundPro works well. Riding with proper ear protection to deal with wind and environmental noise should be standard. The SoundPro has enough volume to make listening to music with earplugs in, work very well. You can get the bass response, and clear audio while still muting away the wind noise.
You can make calls at low speeds, the microphones will pick that up, and they filter out the wind/road noise, but this is a weak point. This is also not an intercom-style system, so do not expect to connect to another rider unless it is via a phone call.
If you just want to listen to tunes and hate earbuds, the Syphon SoundPro system rocks.
