New Bluetooth intercom/headset from Givi

Italian firm expands product range with new Bluetooth intercom headset

I303S Givi intercom

ANOTHER ENTRY in the 'things we wonder how we did without them' is the Bluetooth headset. A tiny radio on your helmet, which connects to mobile phones, sat-navs and doubles as an intercom to other headsets - just the job for commuting and longer journeys.

And now Italian firm Givi has launched its own take on the product - the new I303S Bluetooth and intercom. It's a commendably tiny unit, and charges off a standard USB connection for eight hours of talk time and seven days of standby time. It uses a general attachment setup that will suit most helmets, and comes with Velcro attachments for the earphone speakers and microphone sponges. RRP is around £165 but street price (well, eBay price...) might be cheaper.
