One for the fellow motorcyclists out there, from Mon. 2nd March Lidl are selling a Bluetooth Helmet intercom set for just £26.99, I regularly pay attention to their deals and this is the first time I have seen this particular item...

It may of course be completely rubbish but according to the specifications it should do everything most bikers would need. I'll certainly be checking it out on the day.

I have taken a photograph of the leaflet as it's not on the website yet. The rest of the motorcycle stuff is fairly usual stuff.

There's more info here on the Irish LIDL site as they get their deals before the UK, also a better picture.... looks really good actually, I'll be buying one... lidl.ie/en/…604

If you look at the details it doesn't actually say the intercom is bluetooth. Bluetooth is only mentioned for the phone connection. Pillion comms is wired. I've seen headsets like this for a tenner. If you want a proper bluetooth intercom get something like this ebay.co.uk/itm…702

Thanks for the reply, you are correct... rider to pillion is not Bluetooth - I personally was aware of this but some might be confused. For me this is not a problem as to be honest I rarely carry a pillion.

I have tried a older version of the interphones and I found them really poor, I'd be apprehensive to spend £50+ to be honest but £27 with a 3 year guarantee is fine with me

I've had mine for over a year, used every day rain or shine as I take the other half in with me in the morning. Biggest problem is getting the earpieces positioned correctly, as they're quite thick and a few mms makes quite a difference to the volume. Helmet needs to be snug too, to cut down wind noise, which can exacerbate the thickness issue. Visor up they're good to 50mph, visor down another 10mph maybe, though by then I'm usually more interested in watching the traffic than having a chat about what's for tea.

Yeah I know what you mean about the speakers... on my interphone model (rectangular design with a small aerial sticking out) the speakers were quite uncomfortable, not too bad in my old Arai helmet but in my new HJC there isn't much room at all. I also found that the Bluetooth connection would regularly drop out and then it was a pain riding along and trying to get the thing to connect. The last two years I've simply plugged directly with normal earphones but Bluetooth is definitely the way forward.

I picked up one of these today and I'm really pleased with it. Not tried it on the bike yet but it pairs with no problem to my phone and is deafening loud (if you want it that way). The sound quality is actually really good, not going to make much difference on a motorway but it's pleasing to know the speakers are up to the job. They are not the thinnest but in my helmet (a HJC RPHA-10) I can hardly feel them. The bluetooth device has a nice soft touch, rather than hard plastic.

The pillion connection is done manually with a coiled cable to the bluetooth device, but also has a 2.5mm connector to disconnect the cable easily. The rider to pillion feature works faultlessly.

As you can probably gather I am very pleased and I reckon quality wise it could easily cost twice as much.

Hello
Just bought these
Intercom sound is very low (at max level) compared with music volume
Do you experience the same?
Thank you

Nope not something I have noticed, admittedly only used the intercom a few times though.

I have bought it today. I must say for the price of less than £20 i dont mind it that the pillion is corded. Less fuss to sync. The sound quality is really good i was pleasantly surprised and would recommend, and that says something about this product. I have tried the phone connection which was very good, very clear sound and i was told i was heard well on the other end. You cannot get better for this price and even more expensive ones are not far off the quality you get with this one.

Be aware they don't work with satnav's or at least a Tomtom rider
