Helmet Bluetooth Options

I've been using my Blinc m2 for the past year and it worked great until I switched from my iPhone 4s to the Galaxy S4. Now the music just skips and it makes me sad LOL. I'm guessing that the S4 is just not compatible with the m2? Does anyone have any other options that they are using as far as universal helmet bluetooths go? And no, I will not switch back to the iPhone ;P

I used some really good earbuds instead (they lasted me a good 4yrs before they went to shit, always by the jack too)...If I want to talk to someone it can wait, the voice recognition on some of these phones need to be better IMO. Sorry this doesn't help.
Is the Blinc system the Oneal helmet. I hear that CG is also running a BT helmet as well, you may want to ask around the BARF forum to get a bigger response.

Thanks Mexican. The blinc m2 is a universal unit that you can put on any full face helmet. I used to use earbuds but the blinc seemed like a safer option. I hear the helmets with the built in bluetooth aren't that good. Haven't tried it out for myself yet. But thanks for the input

your right they really have a poor fitment quality. Have you checked to see if there has been any recalls for your phone or the Blue tooth unit? most likely product error...best way to find out is to test another Samsung phone maybe.

I just recently updated from a Droid incredible to a Droid Razr Max.
I have a real good set of ear buds that I have used for two years with the old phone and now that I have the new Razr max my music cuts in and out.
I thought is was my buds so I tried another set... Still cuts in and out.
Come to find out my new phone has a bad headphone jack..

No Novels!

Fricken GOLD battery!
