Listening to music while riding for many is a no-no, while for others, like myself, it's a pleasure enhancer. When I go a long ride, I put on fast rhythm music to keep me going for hours, and while riding country lanes on a nice sunny ride, I put easy listening music.

But one thing that is not pleasant is the required technology to actually be able to listen to music; either embedded loudspeakers inside your helmet or wired earplugs. But now there is a third solution (and I'm not talking about loudspeakers on your motorcycle since you can never really hear the music properly, but your neighbors can).

This solution comes from a German inventor, and in fact it's as simple as cooking an egg. Headway, for that is the name of the product, is a device that gets plugged on the outside of your motorcycle helmet. It uses a secure mechanism to hold the unit onto your helmet.

Headway Helmet Speaker System

The Headway unit then communicates wireless with your smartphone using Bluetooth. When the unit receives music, it vibrates, and it is this vibrations that makes your helmet resonate, giving it a perfect sound all over your helmet. So it's a bit like putting your head inside a concert hall....your helmet is the speaker; no cables, no other devices to plug in.

So far the product is experimental but the results have been so encouraging that it has already won several awards for its innovation. Apparently the sound is very good, if not excellent. Now the product is heading for crowd-funding and then production.

You can expect it towards the end of the year, for a price around €270 (US$365).

There is a link to the product page, but no real info there. Click here to access the Headway web site Open link in a new window.
