Interphone F5 MC Stereo Bluetooth Intercom

The Interphone F5MC retains all of the great features of the F5XT and adds Anycom, Auto Reconnection and Song Sharing. Anycom allows the F5MC to communicate with all intercom devices of different brands in full duplex mode (in order to use the Anycom feature, the pairing on the other unit must be done as a phone). With Intercom Auto Reconnection, the F5MC will automatically try to reconnect your intercom after it has gone out of range. Song Sharing allows the rider and passenger to listen to the same music from a single MP3 audio source.

Up to 4 F5MCs can be connected to extend intercom range to up to a mile. The frustration of hearing mysterious beep tones has been eliminated with the Text to Speech (TTS) feature of the F5MC. TTS gives audible voice indications when the intercom connects, disconnects, music plays or pauses, and when a phone call is incoming. The F5MC TTS feature will also tell you who is calling so you can avoid answering the call if desired. Bluetooth 3.0 technology gives the F5MC the longest battery life of any Bluetooth intercom to date.

The F5MC features a host of audio options. The hi-fi stereo speakers provide great sound quality for music and intercom. Each F5MC kit includes a 3.5mm audio cable for connection to non-Bluetooth audio devices. A2DP stereo Bluetooth allows high quality music streams from your stereo Bluetooth device to the F5MC. The remote control profile allows you to control playback remotely from the F5MC (with notifications from the headset TTS system). Music functionality if further expanded with the F5MC's built in FM radio. Also an industry first is the forthcoming handlebar remote which will allow control of the headset without ever having to take hands off the handlebars.

The F5MC features the most advanced phone options available. Incoming and outgoing calls can be controlled by voice, incoming calls are also announced as the F5MC can read caller information, so there are no surprises when you answer. Multipoint technology also allows two phones to be connected simultaneously (if you have a business and personal line). Advanced DSP algorithms make calls at freeway speeds sound as good as calls made in the living room.

Features:

  • Pairs in full duplex with up to 4 other headsets for full duplex intercom
  • Can be used with all previous versions of the Interphone (F5XT, F4, F3, F2 and original Interphone)
  • Can pair to any smartphone for music, GPS and phone calls

  • Rechargeable lithium ion battery lasts up to 12 hours while the F5MC is in use
  • Stereo speakers provide clean, loud audio

  • Optional handlebar remote (sold separately)

  • Battery can last up to 700 hours of standby when not in use

Better than expected
My riding buddy and I were in the market for a bluetooth communicator and when sena launched the s20, we decided to get on the waiting list. Then the bad reviews started to come in so we did an exaltive search for another manufacturer who offered similar features and higher quality. After checking everything on the market we narrowed it down to interphone or uclear. We tried the uclear, but it does not offer a FM radio and was not as water resistant as the interphone. So we ordered our F5 s.
It arrived after 3 days and worked great out of the box. The learning curve was short and the wonderful female voice with the British accent talks you through all the functions and features. They paired to both iPhones and to each other easily. There is no annoying loud beeps or tones but it is truly a pleasure to operate. I wear hearing aids from being around loud engines most of my life and I can hear my music, fm and intercom without my hearing aids with no wind noise.
The whole case is made of rubber and included in the kit is a tube of dielectric grease to seal the plug in connector. Installation Was easy and I was up and running in no time.
Firmware updates are available with 2 updates so far this year. The only down side is you need a pc with windows to update the firmware, but that is the only issue I have with the unit.

It is an excellent device and I highly reccomendations it. I now have the ability to communicate while riding with my buddy, and can pair with any other intercom out there if need be.

Very good intercom device...
Using it for a month now every day on my daily commute. Listening to music, using FM radio, people that I talk to, do not recognize that I'm on a bike. Clear sound in and out. Only thing that I could criticize is the Bass, it could be better. With the latest software update "Auto Volume" is working much better. I had to decide between Sena S20 and F5MC and I'm glad that I have choosen F5MC as it is more reliable out in the rain.

Great product
Great product.
I installed on my Shoei GT-Air, and I can talk at 65 - 70 mph without any problem. The music sounds very good, and also the FM radio.

I had to charge the battery before the first use, but after the pairing everything works very fine. The system tell you every option that you select, which is a nice feature but could be a little annoying to.

Easy, Clear & Feature Rich
The F5MC is my first. I have been looking for similar functionality (phone, streaming, FM, line-in) as my autos. Let me tell you, I found it. This unit is perfect, easy to install, easy to learn. Sound quality is great. Installed on my SHOEI Qwest.
The only noticeable change is the additional wind noise from the unit on the side of the helmet. Recommend the product and mount as far back of the helmet to get it out of the main windstream. Also, recommend wearing it before you ride, to learn and get comfortable with the functions and left hand operation-stay focused on the road. Ride on.

Good product with loads of features
I use mine to take phone calls and talk to other paired devices and so far it’s been simple to setup and works well. The people that phone me don’t even know I’m on the bike so they don’t hear the wind noise or the sound of my bike not that my bike is that loud when in lower revs. I do find at higher speeds the wind noise in the helmet makes it difficult to hear so I slow down a bit but that depends on what helmet you have. The battery last quite long and it’s easy to clip off and charge. All round a well thought out product.

Loud
This thing is loud. I run it at the minimum volume and it still blares in my ear, especially when connected to another interphone device.

I find the controls to be a bit frustrating. It doesn't come with good directions so it takes some playing to figure out how everything works.

Overall it works well and has good range. Battery life is really good as well which makes it a worthy investment.

Easy to operate, good functions.
Easy to set up and easy to operate. Does not fit Icon helmets all that great due to thick edge and stepped sides of helmet. Had to use stick mount up high, which makes the left speaker a little awkward because if wire length. Sound is great, picks up radio well, phone is clear on both ends.

Great unit with great sound
This is the second Interphone I have bought as I have multiple helmets, they are for the most part simple to use when paired with one other unit however they get very complicated when trying to pair with multiple units. They need to come up with a phone App similar to others where you link everybody together by ticking the boxes on your phone, this would greatly improve the pairing experience. The sound is by far the best I have heard from any other unit and the volume is loud enough for any eventuality. The only other gripe is with the optional stick on microphone, the foam cover soon comes off and gets lost allowing lots of wind noise to be generated, it also sticks out too far, this could be a real problem in the event of an accident potentially breaking lips, teeth or gums, a flatter profile microphone would be a big improvement, for this reason I use the boom mic even in my full face Arai. The quality of the unit overall is very high, the sound is great, the battery lasts all day and they are small and compact, overall a great unit.

Bluetooth = no wires 8)
I decided to get this after researching a lot of other communication devices. One of the big selling points to me ( which I have not been able to test for myself yet) was if a rider rides out of range it will auto connect! Other ones make you stop and reconnect each rider again ( what a pain that would be) I am used to the chatterbox and it always worked fine but I had to have wires connected to my music device and my helmet so it made it a little cumbersome to use. With this one it is great! Just make sure your phone is on Bluetooth before you turn on the headset. If you have the handle bar remote ( I do ) then move it around to make sure it's on also before you turn on headset. I have not had any issues connecting to phone or remote. The voice help is very nice no guessing where you are in the menu. There is a lot of features I have not messed with yet but for taking a call or listening to music it is great! Battery life is great as well and easy to charge.

If you get this, GET THE REMOTE
The menus are easy to use, it has a lot of features, and it's good quality.
The buttons are HARD to find with gloves on, so I highly recommend you get the remote. Winter gloves are almost impossible, and I would give up for fear of being distracted to the point of it being dangerous. The handlebar remote is useable.

Jeff P on Jul 27, 2015
Tough decision... I went back and forth between this, the UClear HBC200 and the Scala Q3 (and the Q1 but there was processing time and I needed it next week). The F5MC seems to afford me the capabilities to do what I want now (phone, gps, music) with the option to expand later if I meet other riders with comms.

Has a custom fit speaker/mike for Shoei helmets. Also supports FM reception.
Richard L on Jul 3, 2015
The Interphone main unit has all the features of best of SENA and Cardo, etc units...plus...and because...it's waterproof, has FM and I can plug my iPod with 27000 tunes directly into it. As it stands I hope to put it in a Kabuto Avand II. If I decide to purchase the Shoei J-Cruise I've also ordered instead, I will upgrade (what I expect to be) the already good F5MC unit by adding the Shoei specific headset kit.

After a lot of research online it seemed the best choice. I needed something waterproof, so the Sena 20s was out. Lost a couple neat features but I'd rather have something I don't have to worry about in the west-coast rain. The F5 also has a speaker upgrade. Text to speech also seems very handy.

I've used the Interphone now for about 700 miles and love the FM and music streaming (from my android) feature. Also, it comes in handy when I use my Android's Google Map program which interrupts the music whenever there is a turn by turn needed. Works very slick.

Does it fit in a shark speed-r?
A shopper on Sep 26, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I don't know about the helmet you are referring to but I installed it in a Shoei Hornet 2. I had to not use the little Velcro bags the speakers fit into and put my own Velcro for the auto parts store on the actual speakers and mount in the ear pockets. On my cheaper LS 2 helmet? I took a razor knife and cut out the styrofoam to make the pocket deeper. My Honds CB500x is pretty quiet and I actually run the volume at about half. The FM signals are not too good but the phone and music streaming for my iPhone work excellent. The battery after an 11 hr ride was still medium , so a long weekend should be fine. I would buy again.
Does it fit in a shark speed-r?
A shopper on Sep 26, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I mounted my interphone to my ICON variant helmet using the the provided bracket that sticks to your helmet with provided adhesive backing. This has worked very well. I Would have rather used the provided bracket that screws together however it would not fit my helmet. Bottom line this unit will work on any helmet and they provide you with all the hardware to make it work no matter what style helmet your using.
is there a phone app for this kit?
A shopper on Aug 7, 2015
BEST ANSWER: My F5MC works fine with my Iphone via a Bluetooth connection. I also run a handlebar mounted Interphone hands free kit, also Bluetooth. Have not tried other phones though.
I've read in another review that this product works well - maybe better than all competitors - with an open-face or 3/4 helmet; can anyone comment on that?
A shopper on Mar 29, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes the noise cancellation in my opinion is the best from the units I have used, especially for open face helmets
I have a pair of Scala G9x bluetooth headsets. Will the F5MC work as a 3-way conference unit with them?
A shopper on Jul 14, 2014
BEST ANSWER: It supports "Anycom" and Scala is mentioned although not the specific model.
How well can you hear the speakers with loud pipes?
A shopper on May 26, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I have severe hearing loss and, like you I was unable to hear conversation with the stock speakers. I ride a harley with long shot pipes and could not hear what the British lady in my interphone was telling me to do.
I purchased a set of pro sound speakers that are custom made for my shoei j cruise helmet. I can now hear very well at about 3/4 volume without my hearing aids. Although the purchase of the new speakers and the helmet was expensive, it completely resolved my problem and I am glad I made the investment. Our group takes long multi state rides and being able to hear has caused us to avoid a few near misses when people in cages do stupid things.
I understand that the main unit is removable with the clamp mount. Is it also removable with the sticky mount?
Todd B on Oct 13, 2015
BEST ANSWER: It is. The unit snaps into a holder that is held by either the sticky or screw mount.
How do you adjust the volume when riding?
steven w on May 30, 2015
BEST ANSWER: primary used for music streaming. Never had a problem with volume or clarity. Good stereo sound. I like the ATT mute when other "notices" from my phone interrupt the music. Voice activated features don't seem to work well--uses the phone's software. Not something I care about. Voice answer works every time, however.
