Be the leader of your pack with this Bluetooth system

Kenwood’s KCA-HX5M Bluetooth communication system for bikers makes it easy to stay in touch with your crew at rallies or other riding events, thanks to its Mesh Intercom, which lets up to 24 riders communicate with each other as a group wirelessly. This handy headset kit works with nearly any helmet and comes with a couple of different mics to suit your riding environment. Once you’re out on the road, you can enjoy hands-free conversations with one person or many. And you can listen to your favorite tunes, including those from local FM radio stations, too.

Mesh Intercom

The KCA-HX5M features the latest Sena 30K Mesh Intercom technology, which lets riders talk headset-to-headset in groups or individually from up to 1.2 miles apart, without having to pair each headset together. You can talk to other riders using a KCA-HX5M or another compatible Sena Mesh Intercom headset. Use the free Mesh Utility for Kenwood app on your smartphone to easily manage settings, including channels and members in different Group Meshes, or use Open Mesh to have the whole club communicate with each other. You also get Audio Multitasking so you can talk to your peers while also listening to music or GPS directions from your phone or navigator.

Advanced Bluetooth

The KCA-HX5M’s built-in Bluetooth 4.1 technology allows you to communicate with up to three other riders at the same time via paired phones at a distance of up to 1.2 miles. You’ll also have multiple intercom options to get your friends involved with the conversations. And you can pair the headset with your Bluetooth enabled GPS navigator or music player so you can hear directions and tunes through the headset’s speakers.

Music options

Not only does the KCA-HX5M pair with additional phones or MP3 players so you can stream audio as you ride, it features a 2.5mm auxiliary input so you can hook a music source like a CD player or other portable media player right into your headset and enjoy tunes as you ride. Are you a radio fan? This headset features FM reception, so you can check out local stations as you ride, and you can even save up to ten presets. Advanced Noise Control noise cancellation ensures your music and conversations will sound solid, no matter how loud your chopper gets.

Voice commands for hands-free operation

The KCA-HX5M’s jog dial controller and phone/intercom buttons make it easy to scroll through different functions and control the communication, but the headset also understands a number of simple voice commands. By speaking the commands out loud, you can keep your hands on your bike and still manage chats, calls, and your music effortlessly.

Reliable performance

Kenwood built this system for the long haul. It’s water-resistant, so safe to use in stormy weather or if you’re expecting a splash-filled ride. It offers up to 13 hours of talk time in Bluetooth Intercom mode (8 hours in Mesh Intercom mode), so you’re set for long days out cruising. And you can recharge the headset’s battery in under 2 hours, in case you need to hit the road again in a jiffy.
