Read the special articles on Bluetooth and motorcycles:
This looks pretty good! A company (Dimton Co) in Taiwan are producing a complete communication device for motorcycles. Their offering comes in two parts.

Dimton BlueVirtu BSH-01
The first part is the BlueVirtu BSH-01 Bluetooth headset. It's a headset that supports the A2DP Bluetooth interface (i.e. it gives you stereo Bluetooth), and functions as a headset for a Bluetooth equipped mobile telephone, and as intercom with a similar BSH-01. Much like other Bluetooth motorcycle headsets (like Cellularline Interphone or Cardo Scala Rider).

Except this unit supports A2DP Bluetooth, allowing you to connect to a music device that supports the same protocol, and you'll be able to listen to stereo music (stereo headset supplied).

The unit will last 9 hours in conversation mode, and 500 hours in standby mode.

Price: US$185 per headset. The headset weights 18 grams.

Dimton BlueVirtu BAT-01
The second part is the BlueVirtu BAT-01. This is a communications device that accepts several audio inputs, either wired or wireless (via Bluetooth).

You can connect your GPS, iPod/MP3/CD player, Radar warning and/or bike-to-bike communication device.

The BAT-01 receives all the signals and pipes then, using Bluetooth, to your helmet.

Now here's the interesting thing... your helmet doesn't need to have the BSH-01 Bluetooth headset! It can function with any Bluetooth headset. At least, that's the theory. Obviously there will be incompatibilities here and there, but in theory this looks really good.

Dimton BlueVirtu BAT-01
The unit has 5 connectors, #1 for a radio transceiver (walkie-talkie), #2 for the Push-to-Talk device (for the walkie-talkie), #3 for non-Bluetooth phones (with a priority for this device), #4 for a GPS, radar detector or PDA and #5 for music. The unit is priority interrupted, so the highest priority inputs override the lower ones.

The unit is rainproof by means of a supplied rainproof jelly cover. The "downside" is that the unit only uses batteries, and can not be wired to your motorcycle for electricity. but the batteries last 20 hours operationally (and 750 hours in standby mode). According to the manufacturer, this is because the sound quality is better on batteries.

Price: US$300.

Looks like a very useful communication device for motorcycles.
