We’ve seen several other bluetooth and hands free communication devices, some very complex with a camera, and some unencumbered by a smartphone but using a separate transmitter. Now, there’s one that minimizes the size and weight of what’s on your noggin by pairing with a smartphone app to let you communicate with up to nine of your riding buddies at a time…
Besides form factor, one of the key benefits of BONX is unlimited range, so long as you are in an area with cellular coverage. It’ll adjust the data integrity to accommodate weaker cell signals, too. It picks up your voice and starts communicating through app nearly instantly, saving battery life when you (or your buddies) are silent. Dual microphones help it know when you’re talking versus ambient noise, and wind and noise reduction keep it clear.
The earpiece comes in four colors and can be used to make standard phone calls or listen to music, also. The app is free and works on iOS 8 and newer and Android 4.3 and newer.
BONX has already successfully crowdfunded and shipped their first batch in Japan, and now they’re after the North American market through Indiegogo. Above are a few of the deals offered, check their campaign page for all the ways to nab one. Shipping is estimated to start this fall. Suggested retail price after the campaign is $139 each.
