Nolan N-Com B4 Bluetooth Kit for N104 Helmets
Excellent integration with the N-104 helmet. Bluetooth connects easily with my Garmin GPS, IPhone - phone and streaming music, and my Triumph Trophy SE.
Audio quality is excellent for rider/pillion and phone communications. Good quality for music.

Wouldn't buy it again
The unit installs easily. I have owned for about a year and am disappointed with the performance. When changing function or stations, the "beeps" jump around and are unpredictable. Sometimes I can access my phone, sometimes not. At highway speeds, noise from my helmet makes it difficult to hear. I cannot download updates or work with the program because it is PC based & won't work with my MacBook Pro or iPad. Selection of stations is ok in the city but on highways away from urban areas it is not uncommon to get no stations at all. I have had some success with phone apps like TuneIn but reception is inconsistent. Overall, this has been more trouble than it's worth. Save your money!

This Bluetooth kit is easy and has great functionality.
It's great. It only has three buttons so you don't have to jumble around with controls while you're riding. It's really easy to learn to program it and even easier to switch from radio to Bluetooth music from your phone to answering a call. Has great battery length lasting almost 4 hours of nonstop playback

I never expected the B4 to be as effective as reported. Very clear sound up to 800+ meters away. Ones paired, automatic connection eliminates the need to ask the either the phone or the B4 to connect each time. Astonishing noise deduction from surrounding wind, from the other rider (Bike to Bike) and while making a phone call.
Simple to use controls, you will not feel it in the helmet, you just know it is there.

The Nolan N-Com B-4 really works!
This really works and easy to in stall. The clarity for voice recognition is great, clear and with no interference. The person I'm talking with can not tell I'm on my motorcycle. Controls for volume and channels are intuitive and quick to operate while in motion (Please use caution). This takes the worry out of staying in touch!

Good helmet for the amount of money spent.
Great helmet. Bloototh works great. Just battery doesn't hold as much as others.

Features are excellent - Works great with iPhone
I bought the B4 to go with my new Nolan N104, On a stock motorcycle with stock mufflers the B4 would work great. Unfortunately I do not have stock mufflers and they create a resonance within the N104 helmet, which makes it difficult to hear the B4 speakers. I have to turn the volume all the way up which makes it uncomfortable. This is not a problem with the helmet or the B4 comm system.
I installed the B4 into the helmet myself and it was real easy to do. I had one issue where I could not get my iPhone to play music but all I had to do was download and install the newer B4 firmware and then re-pair the bluetooth. I had to remove the original pairing first before it would work,
This combination Helmet and comm system would work great on any BMW, Honda, or stock Harley. Beware of aftermarket pipe/muffler resonance!
