Voice Activated Microphone

Postby rcr » Fri Aug 12, 2011 8:58 am



Has anyone used or found a voice activated microphone and/or headset for a 2005 Goldwing that will fit an open face helmet? I would also be intested in an in-line VOX. I am currently using J&M Elite series headsets and have alot of wind noise when the intercom is on and it tends to drown out the radio. I figure one way to eliminate that is to use a VOX or a voice activated microphone. I know some of the noise will still be there when talking on the intercom but it should be gone when no one is talking.

Many use a product called "Mic-Mutes". I don't have that much trouble with wind noise and therefore don't know everyone that sells them but I am pretty sure that Wingstuff and Honda Direct Line sells them. You could probably google them and find other info or vendors.

+1 on Mic Mutes.

Adjust the mic sensitivity on your Audio Unit, the Bike has it's own Voice Activation circuit for the Intercom. Decrease sensitivity until the VOX is not triggered. You still get some noise, but then you can also adjust the Intercom gain for that until you find a comfortable compromise. It really is a good system if adjusted correctly.

The GL2way has a Voice Activated Microphone features (VOX) to trigger the PTT on the radio(s) that are connected. They have a DSP algorithm to prevent false triggers on wind noise.

i agree with this, i had the same issue, i messed with the intercom control until i found a comfortable level. but i turned the voice activation off because when i use my cell phone it doesn't work right. because of the way i have it hooked up it will mute the person i am talking to, because it is designed to mute the music when you talk. 8-)

The GoldWing does not have a VOX system! Mics are always "hot" with the I-com system turned on. Having said that, the adjustment suggested above sets the "noise"(voice) level at which the mics will override any other audio system you have on, such as the radio(am/fm) or a CD player.
The only system available to actually shut the mics off, that seems to do a good job IMHO, is the Mic-Mutes.
