What is Bluetooth?

Bluetooth is a wireless protocol utilizing short-rangecommunications technology facilitating data transmissions over short distances from fixed and/or mobile devices, creating wireless personal area networks (PANs).

The intent behind the development of Bluetooth was the creation of a single digital wireless protocol, capable of connecting multiple devices and overcoming issues arising from synchronization of these devices. Bluetooth provides a way to connect and exchange information between devices such as mobile phones, telephones, laptops, personal computers, printers, GPS receivers, digital cameras, and video game consoles over a secure, globally unlicensed industrial, Scientific, and Medical (ISM) 2.4 GHz short-rangeradio frequency bandwidth.

Important information concerning the Whistler Bluetooth Headsets.

1). The paring between 2 headsets or headset and another device will be automatically interrupted if the reception distance is exceeded.

2). Please make sure that the paired devices will be in close proximity.

3). The Bluetooth function of other devices in the environment should be switched off so that they won’t interfere with the pairing process.

4). Please note that in some cases, the headsets cannot be paired with external devices because some manufacturers do not allow other Bluetooth devices than their own.

Intercom Function

Headset Distance

The BT2200/2300 is intended for communications between the driver and passenger. You will need one headset for each person. The BT3200/330 is intended for communications between the driver of one motorcycle to the driver of another. You will need one headset for each person.

Vox Function

1). The headsets are equipped with VOX function. Channel 2 will be muted if there is no active communication between headsets. Thus, no noise will be transferred between headsets during this time and all connected audio devices will be active.

2). The VOX function mutes automatically after 30 seconds if the headset does not detect any communication signals, perhaps because the signals are too low. 5 seconds before the intercom mutes, the headset paired as Master will get a signal. The Slave headset will provide a sound when deactivation of the VOX occurs.

3). To keep the VOX on after the signal (sound), the Master [voice] has to speak louder. It may be necessary to adjust the sensitivity of the microphone (page 24) to ensure continuous communications. After the VOX has turned off, it can be activated again by speaking with a loud voice into the microphone.

In that case, please protect the microphone as much as possible from ambient noises and lower the microphone sensitivity. If you ride for long hours at high speeds, we recommend that you switch off channel 2 at one headset. If the channel is switched on again, the headsets are paired and the communications can resume.

Adjustment of microphone sensitivity

If the VOX does not function appropriately, the microphone sensitivity should be adjusted. The individual adjustment depends on the helmet, riding conditions, and the voice level.

1). Press [+] & [-]keys simultaneously for 6 seconds (from a power off status). Release the keys.
