Jog Dial and Ergonomics
Overall functionality and ease of use plays a critical role in to whether a consumer does or doesn’t like a product. Sena engineers determined that motorcycle enthusiasts like to have a larger dial on the Bluetooth device because their gloves are cumbersome making it hard to push buttons. The Jog Dial allows users to easily control volume and with a simple push button you can access all functions of the device. The intuitive user interface, combined with the large Jog Dial makes for a safer riding experience.
One of the main important factors of using a headset is to stay connected and having Bluetooth capability is a must when on the road. All of Sena’s headsets come standard with Bluetooth 3.0 technology which allows riders to wirelessly make mobile calls, listen to stereo or MP3 player music or audio instruction of GPS navigation. Riders can also effortlessly hold conversations with another motorcyclist or the passenger via the Bluetooth intercom system.
One of the most technologically advanced features Sena Bluetooth offers its users is four (4)-way conference intercom system. With a distance up to 900m or a half mile, the system is the most reliable intercom motorcycle system on the market. An additional feature that makes the Intercom function a standout is the ability to also host a conference phone patch for all intercom participants.
Due to Sena’s expertise in the Bluetooth communication industry they have provided the new firmware to allow it to be compatible with competing Bluetooth communication systems in the market. Providing units that can pair and function with other Bluetooth devices helps to expand the users experience and reduce limitations due to technological complications. Riders can cross over between brands and products to utilize all of the devices they want and need for their rides. The Universal Intercom™ is a unique technology to the industry as it provides cross-brand interoperability to the users with a conference intercom capability. The advanced technology helps the continued establishment of Sena as the leader in the Bluetooth communication market.
Riders can share music with an intercom friend using Bluetooth stereo music during a two-way intercom conversation. The music sharing feature provides the ability for two paired systems to share music to and from both intercoms with some unique control aspects provided. Switching from shared music streaming back to the intercom is simple and either user can also employ AVRCP to move the music forward or backward.
An important feature customers value is the quality of the audio sound from their headset. Sena’s full product line provides crystal clear, natural sound quality, and is integrated with an audio booster providing sufficient sound level for noisy environments. With a noise reduction mechanism built into the headset rides can enjoy a clear and loud level of audio with audio boosting.
Advanced Noise Control™
It is equipped with wind noise suppression and intelligent Noise Gate in the intercom to limit the interference of wind noise and background noise while riding. The new technology allows the wind noise to be automatically detected and reduced while maintaining the full volume of voice communication. With the wind noise suppression and Noise Gate technology, rides can have more clear and enjoyable intercom conversation.
Sena customers have the option of registering their headsets which will allow for updates regarding new firmware options. Firmware upgrades allow Sena’s headsets to always operate at their peak and have the most up-to-date functionality and options for rapid technological advancements in smartphone and Bluetooth device. The firmware upgrades are available for free when available to all registered Sena customers.
Safety is a key factor when out on the road and Sena has integrated voice prompts into all of their units to ensure riders can maintain handsfree control. Voice prompts allow riders to operate functions such as GPS, volume control, mobile phone calls and more without needing to take their hands off of the handle bars. Sena provide voice prompt options for multi-language, English, French, German, Italian, and Spanish.This is necessary to ensure safety is maintained during times of traffic or congestion.
