What is POC Communication


Transforming The Way We Communicate

POC (Push-to-Talk Over Cellular) communication is a type of wireless communication technology that utilizes a cellular network to connect users. It is similar to traditional two-way radio communication, but instead of using dedicated radio channels, it uses a cellular network to connect users. This allows PTT communication to be more flexible and accessible, as it does not require a dedicated radio infrastructure.

From Limited to Limitless Communication


For years, two-way radios have served as reliable communications devices for mobile teams. More recently, the broad demand for mobile communication devices has led to the rapid development of mobile phones – cell phones – and their cellular networks. More recently still, the development of Push-To-Talk (PTT) applications has allowed companies to turn their mobile phones into two-way radios, thus allowing simplex and duplex communication through a single, multifunction device. This technology is most commonly known as Push-to-talk over Cellular (PoC) in reference to the push-to-talk communication of two-way radios.


Push-to-Talk over Cellular is Now


PTT communication, users press a button on their device, such as a smartphone or a specialized PTT device, to transmit their voice and release the button to listen. This allows for quick, easy, and efficient communication, without the need for a dedicated radio channel or network.

POC communication can be used in various industries, such as transportation, construction, and manufacturing, as well as in public safety and emergency services. In these industries, it can be used for tasks such as coordinating logistics, managing field operations, or communicating with remote workers. PTT communication can also be used for personal use, such as for motorcycle riders to communicate with each other while on the road.

The use of POC communication systems enables users to communicate in real-time, without the need for a dedicated infrastructure, and also allows for group communication, where multiple people can participate in a conversation at the same time. Some PTT systems also include additional features such as GPS tracking, recording, and integration with other systems.

POC communication technology has advanced in recent years, with the advent of advanced features such as group calling, call recording, GPS tracking, and integration with other systems. PTT providers offer different solutions and plans, which can be tailored to suit the specific needs of different industries and organizations.


Communication Without Borders

PTT application providers, realizing that a hard switch from radio to PoC may be too uncertain for many organizations, are investing in software development or acquisitions to provide PTT apps that integrate PoC into two-way radio communication. This allows mobile phone users to communicate on specified radio channels and makes adoption easily scalable. It also makes group tests virtually risk free and allows companies to scale their adoption rate up to a suitable point in the organization, which could be a total replacement of twoway radio communication by PoC.


PoC Checklist

Mobile Devices: The mobile device can be a smart phone, tablet, flip phone, or a featured phone supported by a specific PTT app maker. Common choices are Android phones and tablets from manufacturers such as Samsung, as well as Apple’s iPhones and iPads. For industries in rough environments, a ruggedized phone like a Sonim XP8 is often a preference; these phones often carry an integrated PTT button. No matter what mobile device is selected, the user should ensure that the PTT app and other work tool apps and needed audio accessories are available and supported by the device and function flawlessly.

Mobile Network: Different types of data networks are available for PoC technologies. For data speed and therefore speed of communication and reliability, LTE networks are the networks of choice. Most PTT application work well even in 3G networks with only limited effect on communication quality. The data consumption of PTT apps has proved to be relatively low. Even in high communication environments, the data rarely passes 1 GB per month. For local applications such as airports or in the manufacturing industry, WiFi networks are a reliable option.

Mobile Apps: PTT apps from different providers have different features and options. Some PTT apps are free for up to a designated number of users which might be extremely valuable for smaller companies with few users. PTT apps are also offered by carriers; most work with at least one PTT app maker to offer a solution for their business customers. This can be convenient – one-stop-shopping when talking to a sales representative who can provide the mobile device, the data plan, the PTT app and the accessory. A disadvantage of the carrier solution is that it is restricted to a certain network while other PTT apps that can work cross-carrier might be a better option for organizations with global communication requirements.

PoC Accessories: Because most mobile phones and tablets are multi-task tools, they have not been designed specifically for PoC communication. PoC accessories, however, can optimize their PoC use. These accessories allow the user to keep the mobile phone in the pocket safely protected from dust and moisture but still communicate with a single button press. This ease of use leads to an additional increase in communication. Accessories can also resolve other communication concerns.

What are the benefits of PoC?

PoC offers several benefits over traditional two-way radio communication systems, including:

  1. Cost-effectiveness: PoC is much more cost-effective than traditional two-way radio communication systems, as it does not require the purchase of any additional equipment.
  2. Flexibility: PoC allows users to communicate from anywhere with a cellular connection, making it a highly flexible solution.
  3. Instant communication: PoC enables users to communicate instantly, which is crucial in fast-paced and high-pressure environments.
  4. Improved productivity: PoC can help improve productivity by enabling workers to communicate quickly and effectively, even when they are on the move.

  2. Group communication: PoC allows users to communicate with multiple people at the same time, making it an ideal solution for group communication.
  3. Instant transmission: PoC allows users to transmit voice messages instantly, making it a highly efficient solution for communicating important information quickly.

How to Fix the Audio on a Throat Microphone


How to Optimize Communication Using a Throat Mic

Unlike traditional mics, throat mic transponders have a tendency to sound “muffled” (sounds like you have a cold) because nasal sounds do not get transferred through vibrations in the neck. The IASUS throat mics through three generations of development are the most refined on the market today. When used properly they deliver the clearest communication under extreme environmental conditions such as wind and noise.

When using the throat mic, it is important to speak clearly and to maintain a normal audible tone (speak as if you are talking in an ambient room). This is not inherently natural, as we tend to speak louder when the environment is noisy or windy but this technique will optimize the sound quality of our transponder communication.

The Sound Quality Coming From My Transponder Isn’t Very Good. What’s Wrong?

Usually this is simply a matter of finding the ideal location for the transponder on your throat. Everybody has a “sweet spot” that balances volume and clarity, and it is generally found about 1 to 2 inches from the center of your throat. However, its location is different for everyone and depends on factors such as your individual anatomy, voice quality, and amount of facial hair. Moving the transponder closer to your voice box (at the center of your throat) will boost the volume, but may cause distortion. If the sound quality is muffled, move the transponder further away from the center of your throat. You should keep readjusting the throat strap and testing the unit until you find the sweet spot.

Another potential cause of poor sound quality is the device you are using to transmit the signal. Better audio sources—such as higher-end radios—result in better communication. We recommend pairing our headsets with higher-powered UHF radios. Certain low-end recreational radios are not up to the performance specifications of our throat mics and can interfere with their performance.

When Using the Acoustic Coil Earpiece in a Noisy Environment, I Still Cannot Hear Clearly. How Can I Fix This?

In particularly noisy environments such as inside clubs, at concerts, or while under heavy fire, pairing the NT3-R system’s earpiece with an earplug is a MUST. This is because in order to register sound, the brain processes the dominant sound level from either the left or right ear. That means that when using the NT3-R in a loud environment, the volume of the audio source needs to be louder than the external noise in order for your brain to “hear,” resulting in potential loss of hearing in high volume situations. Plugging the open ear prevents this sensory imbalance.

How Are Motorcycle Helmet Speakers Safer Than Earbuds?


Riding a motorcycle can be an exhilarating experience, but it can also be a noisy one. When it comes to listening to music or taking phone calls while riding, many motorcyclists turn to earbuds. However, earbuds can be dangerous because they block out external noise, making it difficult to hear important sounds such as sirens, horns, and other warning signals. That’s why motorcycle helmet speakers have become a popular alternative for riders who want to enjoy music while staying safe on the road.

In this article, we will explore how motorcycle helmet speakers are safer than earbuds, the benefits of using helmet speakers, and some tips for choosing the right helmet speaker for your needs.

1. What are motorcycle helmet speakers?

Speakers that may be put within a motorbike helmet are known as motorcycle helmet speakers. They eliminate the need for earphones or headphones by enabling the rider to use GPS navigation, listen to music, or make phone calls. IASUS produces the best helmet speakers on the market with the XSound 2.1 helmet speaker and the XSound 3 helmet speaker

2. How are motorcycle helmet speakers safer than earbuds?

The fact that motorcycle helmet speakers don’t entirely filter out outside noise is one of the key reasons why they are safer than earbuds. By using earbuds, the ear canal is sealed off from outside noise, which might be hazardous when operating a motorcycle. While the music from helmet speakers is focused on the rider’s ears, they can still hear external sounds like sirens, horns, and other warning signals. Both the rider and other drivers on the road are made safer as a result.

In the United States, different states have different laws regarding the use of in ear earbuds and headphones while operating a motorbike. California, Florida, and Virginia are the three states that now forbid using earbuds while riding a motorcycle. Any headset that covers both ears while riding a motorcycle is forbidden in these states. It’s vital to research local regulations before using earbuds while riding because other states have have general distracted driving prohibitions that could be interpreted to include doing so while using earphones.

3. Benefits of using motorcycle helmet speakers

The advantages of motorcycle helmet speakers versus earphones are numerous. They are safer in the first place since the rider can hear sounds outside. Second, since nothing needs to be placed into the ear canal, they are more pleasant to wear. Lastly, because they are installed into the helmet, they are more convenient because the rider doesn’t have to worry about tangled cords, lost earbuds and hurting your ears when the earbud gets caught when taking off your helmet.

Earbuds on the other hand are perfect for track use; no traffic, no pedestrians, no emergency vehicles make earbuds advantageous as it blocks out the wind and exhaust noise that may be damaging for your ears. Flaggers are on sight for all the information you need for track conditions so the earbuds are strictly for personal use. The IASUS Earmold x Earbud kit paired with the Rekon comm system , Stealth Throat mic and wired throat mics are options that can be used for track use.

4. Choosing the right motorcycle helmet speaker.

There are a number of factors to take into account while selecting a motorcycle helmet speaker. To begin with, make sure the speaker is appropriate for your helmet. While some helmets come with built-in speaker pockets, it may actually not be in the most optimal spot for your ears. Second, pick a speaker loud enough to be heard above the roar of the motorcycle and with good sound quality. The speaker should also be simple to operate and have easy-to-reach controls that can be used while wearing gloves. If your speakers are still good and you don’t want to change them, you can opt for a small amplifier like the IASUS EAR3H Helmet Amp. The extra boost in power gives your speakers the bump up it needs for a bit more volume.

5. How to install motorcycle helmet speakers.

The technique of installing motorcycle helmet speakers is rather straightforward. The majority of speakers include pads of adhesive that can be stuck to the inside of the helmet. Moreover, some helmets come with built-in speaker pouches that can be utilised to secure the speakers. After being installed, the speakers can be Bluetooth-connected to a smartphone or other audio device. Here is a more a more in-depth guide on how to install helmet speakers.

Final thoughts.
It is important to understand soundwaves. Soundwaves are vibrations that travel through the air and into our ears, where they are interpreted by our brains as sound. The intensity of the sound is measured in decibels (dB). The higher the decibel level, the louder the sound. Sounds over 85 dB can cause permanent hearing damage over time. Unknowingly, wind noises in your helmet can actually be at hearing damaging dB levels. It is ideal to ensure that you are protecting your hearing as the utmost importance. With high wind noise AND trying to get music to your ears, the dB levels are definitely damaging.
We have some quiet helmets that we think are pretty good to help you listen to your music, lowered wind noises and overall better for your wellness and hearing.

In conclusion, motorcycle helmet speakers offer a safer alternative to earbuds when it comes to listening to music, making calls, or using navigation while riding. They offer clear communication, improved comfort, improved sound quality, and allow riders to stay aware of their surroundings. If you are in the market for a helmet speaker, the IASUS Concepts XSound 3 helmet speaker is a great option to consider.

The Secret to the Best Helmet Speaker Audio Quality

iasus concepts best helmet audio for music


Here at IASUS, we have been the leader in the helmet speaker market segment since 2001. We have seen our competitors come and go, so we are confident when we say that not all helmet speakers are created equal and we know what makes a helmet speaker great.

From the material of the speaker cone to the custom housing for achieving the right acoustics, we design each series of our XSound helmet speakers from the drawing board. And because we research and develop speakers in-house at our IASUS Headquarters, we do not source cheap, already-made generic speakers and pass them off as our own with fancy packaging and licensed brand names. This is often the case in this era of sourcing and rebranding, in order to save time and cost to bring new products to the market as quickly as possible. Ironically, well known brands on the market has approached IASUS at one time or another to supply them with speakers for their upcoming Bluetooth headset systems.

Now, let’s get to the thick of it. What makes a helmet speaker good? The answer is simple, it’s the components!


The speakers  sold on the market today typically use drivers that range from 35mm to 45mm in diameter. Generally, the bigger the driver, the more air it can move, directly translating to higher  volume and more bass. However, that’s also highly dependent on the audio source, so don’t just go out and buy a new pair expecting it to be significantly louder than what you’re replacing – they won’t be. (We will have more on achieving higher volume in a future article.) Both the material and construction of the drivers also matter, since it is not as simple as sourcing and repurposing headphone drivers for helmet use. For example, we at IASUS designs our own drivers and they are engineered specifically for helmet use.

Speaker housing

This is just as important as the drivers. A properly designed enclosure matching the driver ensures the speaker will deliver accurate and crisp sounds, and allows as a whole to function as efficiently as possible, in order to not lose any volume than what the audio source can put out. The IASUS XSound 3 housing, for example, is tuned and ported for exceptional full range audio with unmatched bass response.


The component that is often overlooked. Good quality cables will not only minimize and eliminate audio signal degradation, but also provide durability over the life of the speakers. Such is the case with our 100% copper stranded cables reinforced with Kevlar that allows for withstanding 10 pounds of pulling tension.

iasus concepts xsound 3 helmet speaker audio drivers
iasus concepts helmet speaker installation

Device compatibility

Most speakers will be equipped with a 3.5mm stereo connector to retain universal compatiblity. The 3.5mm connector has been a standard in personal audio and still relevant today with the latest mobile phones (some may require an adapter). It has also existed for over 60 years, so there is no reason to reinvent the wheel. IASUS XSound helmet speakers also come equiped with gold-plated contacts to ensure consistent connectivity over timeand corrosion resistance.


As most modern helmets include sufficiently deep ear pockets, they can typically accommodate speakers without requiring any modifications to the helmet protective foam, so there is no need to sacrifice safety for sound. Mounting is almost always accomplished using Velcro, allowing for easy repositioning of the speakers to line up with the ears (very important) and for easy removal and reinstallation when desired. Our IASUS XSound 3 also comes with an Ear Unfolding Tab to unfold your ears after putting on your helmet.


In conclusion, helmet speaker manufacturers use different designs and materials (and sometimes even repurposing other audio products) to achieve various levels of product quality, audio performance, and service life for a helmet speaker to meet their bottom line and maximize profit. IASUS XSound helmet speaker products and components however, are all designed and engineered from the start to be a helmet speaker with offerings at different price points. The best advice we can offer is to try each pair for yourself and see which ones sounds the best to  you and the most comfortable on your ears.

The Importance of Wearing a Quiet Motorcycle Helmet

If you ride a motorcycle, you want to feel secure and at ease while doing so. Many riders are paying more attention to the gear they wear, notably their helmets, as motorcycle riding gains in popularity. The amount of noise that riders hear while wearing helmets is one of their key worries. If you’re riding in a crowded, noisy area, a noisy helmet can be distracting, irritating, and even dangerous. This is why it’s crucial to get the quietest motorbike helmet.

In this article, we’ll look at what makes a motorbike helmet quiet, the advantages of donning one, and our top selections for the quietest helmets currently available.

What Makes a Motorcycle Helmet Quiet?

The purpose of a quiet motorcycle helmet is to lessen wind noise and other outside noises that could be uncomfortable or distracting. The noise level of a helmet is affected by a number of factors, such as:

  1. Aerodynamics: A helmet’s form and design greatly contribute to lowering wind noise. A well-made helmet should have a streamlined, aerodynamic shape that effortlessly slices through the air.
  2. Ventilation: A vacuum effect can be produced by the ventilation openings included in many helmets, which can enhance noise. However, a well-ventilated helmet can lessen wind noise by regulating the airflow around the rider’s head.
  3. Padding and Liners: A helmet’s padding and liners can also contribute to noise reduction. Better insulation will be offered by a helmet with soft, high-density foam than one with stiff, low-density foam.

Mastering Motorcycle Lane Position: A Comprehensive Guide

iasus concepts comprehensive riding faq information


One of the most crucial components of a motorcycle rider’s safety is maintaining the right lane position. Selecting the proper lane position can assist you in staying visible to other motorists, avoiding road dangers, and communicating your intentions to those around you. A thorough explanation of motorcycle lane position will be given in this article, along with information on the many lane position kinds, things to take into account when selecting a lane position, and how to perform each type of lane position correctly. This book will assist you in honing your abilities and maintaining your safety on the road whether you are a novice or seasoned rider. So let’s start now!

1. What is lane position?

Lane position refers to the location of your motorcycle within your lane on the road. As a motorcycle rider, you have more flexibility in your lane position compared to other vehicles on the road. Proper lane positioning can help you avoid hazards, increase your visibility, and communicate your intentions to other drivers on the road.

iasus concepts riding tips and information

1. What is lane position?

Lane position refers to the location of your motorcycle within your lane on the road. As a motorcycle rider, you have more flexibility in your lane position compared to other vehicles on the road. Proper lane positioning can help you avoid hazards, increase your visibility, and communicate your intentions to other drivers on the road.

iasus concepts riding tips

3. The four types of lane position

There are four main types of lane position that motorcycle riders can use, each with their own unique advantages and disadvantages.

3.1 Center lane position

The center lane position is located directly in the center of your lane on the road. There is nothing inherently unsafe about riding in the middle of a lane. When other vehicles are on either side of you, it can actually be the safest choice because it gives you the most cushion space. However, the middle of a lane is where you’ll find oil slicks, road debris, manhole covers, and other safety hazards.

3.2 Left lane position

The left lane position is located closer to the left side of your lane on the road. This position is ideal for passing other vehicles or when you need to make a left-hand turn. The left position also allows you to see further ahead on the road, giving you more time to react to any hazards. The safest “default” lane position for a motorcycle is in the leftmost third of the lane. Most motorcyclists choose to stay in the left position for the majority of the time they’re on the road. It offers good visibility and a flexible set of escape routes in an emergency. There’s more than one right answer to this question, though.

3.3 Right lane position

Riding on the right side of the lane can be dangerous because it puts you in the blind spot of other vehicles, especially when they are turning right. Additionally, debris and oil buildup are often found on the right side of the road, which can make the surface slippery and hazardous. Riding in the center or left portion of the lane can increase your visibility and reduce your risk of accidents.

3.4 Changing lane position

Changing lane position involves moving your motorcycle from one position to another within your lane. This can be done to avoid hazards on the road or to communicate your intentions to other drivers. Changing lane position should always be done gradually and with caution to avoid accidents.

iasus concepts riding guide

4. Factors to consider when choosing lane position

There are several factors that motorcycle riders should consider when choosing their lane position, including traffic flow, road conditions, visibility, weather, and road hazards.

4.1 Traffic flow

When choosing your lane position, consider the flow of traffic around you. If you’re riding in heavy traffic, it may be best to stay in the center lane position to avoid any sudden lane changes. If traffic is flowing smoothly, you may have more flexibility to choose your lane position based on your specific needs.

4.2 Road conditions

Road conditions can greatly affect your lane position. If the road is wet or slippery, it’s best to avoid the center lane position, as this can put you at risk of hydroplaning. In this situation, it may be best to stay in the left or right position, where there is more grip on the road. Similarly, if the road is uneven or has potholes, it’s important to choose a lane position that allows you to avoid these hazards.

4.3 Visibility

Maintaining visibility is essential for driving safely. Think about how visible you are to other road users as you choose your lane location. The greatest place to ride in congested areas or at night is in the centre of the lane, where you are more visible to other vehicles. It’s critical to choose a lane location that allows you to see further ahead on the road when riding in a low-visibility region, such as a blind bend.

4.4 Weather

Weather conditions can greatly affect your lane position. In rainy or windy conditions, it’s best to stay in the center lane position, where you’re less likely to be affected by crosswinds or standing water on the road. Similarly, in hot weather, it’s important to choose a lane position that allows you to stay cool and avoid overheating.

4.5 Road hazards

Finally, when selecting your lane location, it’s critical to take into account any potential road hazards. It’s best to choose a lane position that enables you to avoid any hazards like potholes or road debris. Similar to this, it’s crucial to pick a lane location that enables you to avoid any potential door openings if there are parked automobiles on the side of the road.

How to Use a Throat Microphone

iasus concepts how to use a throat mic


How Does the NT3-R and GP3-R Throat Mic Work?

IASUS Noise Terminator throat mics are different from conventional headset communication systems. Standard boom microphone systems are based on traditional acoustic induction from sound waves in the air. By contrast, NT3-R microphones pick up voice signals via vibrations generated by the user’s larynx through an aluminum transponder that rests on just off the center of the throat. This way, our throat mic systems “eliminate” background noise by simply not picking them up, making NT3-R ideal for use in noisy environments and in situations where quiet, covert communication is necessary.

A lot of throat mics use a double-transponder design in which each transponder rests on either side of the throat. This is not ideal, because most people do not have perfectly symmetrical necks, which leads to an imbalance of the transmission wavelengths from each transponder and causes distortion. IASUS has engineered the NT 3 with a single transponder that hits the “sweet spot” about 1 to 2 inches from the center of your throat.

How to Connect the Adapter to the Throat Mic (NT3-R and GP3-R)

Plug the throat mic into the M2 Adapter (G, sold separately) using the DIN connectors (D). Be sure to align the arrow indicators before firmly pressing them together to avoid bending the pins.

iasus concepts how to use a throat microphone din plug

How to Wear a Throat Mic?

For the best transmission quality when using the NT3-R, place the Gen 3.0 Transponder Microphon (A) about 0.5 – 1 inch on either side of your larynx / voice box. The optimal transponder position on the neck will vary between individuals. The NT3-R’s neck strap is adjustable. To increase or decrease the diameter of the strap, lengthen or shorten the neck strap by using the neck strap adjusters (E).

NOTE: The transponder should rest comfortably on the neck and be contacting your neck at all times – it should not be too tight. The adjustable strap is stretchable to offer flexibility in order for the throat mic to stay in position. Dot not over tighten the straps.

II. Place the throat mic around your neck and reapply the clasp so that it makes contact all around.

iasus concepts how to use a throat mic

III. Adjust the neck strap for tightness by using the adjusters (E). The throat mic needs to be just snug but not tight around your neck.

Initial Use of the Throat Mic (NT3-R and GP3-R)

  1. Plug the mic cable into the audio input port of your device of choice (2-way radio, smartphone, comms).
  2. Insert the earpiece (acoustic coil or earbuds) so that it sits comfortably and securely in your ear.
  3. To talk, push and hold down the PTT (push-to-talk) device (for PTT enabled devices or mobile apps). The button on the M2 adapter is a pick up / end call button by default for smartphones.

You should keep readjusting the throat strap and testing the unit until you find the sweet spot. It will be different for everyone, depending on factors such as your individual anatomy, voice quality, and facial hair. Moving the transponder closer to your voice box at the center of your throat will boost the volume, but may cause distortion. Everybody has a sweet spot that balances volume and clarity; when you find it, fasten the strap securely at the back.

What Phone or Two-Way Radio is the NT3-R and GP3-R Compatible With?

The NT3-R and GP3-R throat mic system works with most popular smartphones and 2-way radio models. Please refer to our full throat mic compatibility table for details on the required adaptors and compatible model numbers.

Better audio sources such as higher-end radios result in better communication transmission. Certain low-end radios are not up to the performance specifications of our throat mics. We recommend pairing our headsets with higher-powered UHF radios.

How to Install Helmet Speakers

iasus concepts helmet speaker inside helmet


How Do I Properly Install the XSound Helmet Speakers for the Best Sound? 

For proper installation, our XSound helmet speakers need to be touching your ears during use inside your helmet. You may use the included foam spacing pads to achieve this (XS3 only).

We also recommend that the helmet speakers are mounted in a more forward and lower position in the ear pockets to accommodate your ears more effectively.

Failure to do the above may cause damage to the speakers – the main cause being the volume gets turned up past acceptable levels to compensate for any wind and engine noise introduced by any gaps.

Before Mounting the Speakers in Your Helmet

It is recommended to test and connect the helmet speakers directly to your smartphone or music player first using the 3.5mm cable and holding them to your ears as your music plays to confirm the optimal position before mounting them in your helmet.

My Helmet Speakers Fit too Tightly

Certain brands of helmet and headgear are designed for a tighter fit and may not accommodate our speakers. Please determine whether your helmet can comfortably accommodate the extra 1/2 inch of helmet speaker on each side before your purchase.

Music Crackles or Pops When Used With a Motorcycle Headset or Bluetooth Receiver. Are They Defective?

Try connecting the helmet speaker directly into a smartphone or music player and play at the same volume. If the crackling or popping disappears, your motorcycle headset or Bluetooth receiver is likely the cause. They tend to not support low-frequency outputs because typically their stock speakers do not deliver audio in that range.

While our XSound series of helmet speakers are designed and tested to be able to play at max volume on smartphones and music players without distortion, IASUS does not recommend listening to music at excessive levels which may lead to temporary or permanent hearing damage. Please proceed with caution.

As the XSound’s quality makes them the ideal choice to replace the stock speakers which motorcycle headsets come with, we are unable to confirm the compatibility with every model of motorcycle headsets (and Bluetooth receivers) out on the market.

The Audio Plays at a Low Volume or With Lots of Treble and Lack Bass

Please use the foam pads (XSound 3 only) to position the speakers so they sit flush against your ears the same way you held them on your ears before installing them in your helmet. Depending on what comms system or phone you are using, the output may be limited from the audio device; so you can also add an amplifier. Luckily there is one for helmets here: https://iasus-concepts.com/ear3-helmet-amplifier/.

The Helmet Speaker/Ear Adjustment Tab

For tight fitting helmet enclosures, volume level and sound quality of your XSound 3 may be diminished if the ears get folded after putting on your helmet. When this happens, the audio does not have a direct path to your ears, hence the reduced volume and poor sound quality. Since it is difficult to access your ears due to the tight fit of your helmet, we included a Tab that was specifically to reach that are through either the space from your visor (when opened) or from the bottom of your helmet. The thin tab should be able to reach and be able to position your ears correctly. Also note that to optimize the sound quality of the Xsound 3, the speakers need to sit flush and directly on the ears. Sometimes, pending how you pivot the helmet the ear cavities are not aligned properly with your ears and that may also affect your audio experience. In order to benchmark the audio, we recommend that you listen to the helmet speakers on your ears directly prior to installation to have a feel for the sound and volume levels. The Xsound 3 package also includes a key ring for the Helmet Speaker Tab so that it can conveniently double as a great motorcycle key holder. This way you won’t forget to bring it or loose it when you are riding.

Are the Cables on My XSound Speakers Faulty?

Due to global requirements for RoHs compliance, unfortunately, products have a shelf life these days as cables need to be bio degradable. Our headsets are no exception so over time the cable material will break down. This is the same for all wired headsets from Bose or Sony as well.
