The Best Motorcycle Bluetooth Helmets &
Headsets from Harley-Davidson

July 12, 2023

Some riders take to the open road with no desire to hear anything other than the roar of their engines. But for those that prefer to travel in packs—or want to pipe in some of their favorite tunes—Bluetooth®-powered equipment can help riders stay connected or in a groove.

Whether you’re looking for a motorcycle helmet or headset that allows you to safely make calls, communicate with your riding partners, or access high-quality audio on your rides, use this guide to Harley-Davidson's Bluetooth® motorcycle headsets and helmets to find an option that suits your needs and style.

Best Bluetooth Headsets

Stay connected on your ride with Harley-Davidson's selection of Bluetooth headsets. Designed with the rider in mind, these headsets allow you to seamlessly communicate with your riding buddies (even if they’re miles away, in some cases) or listen to your favorite tunes while cruising down the road. Multitasking technology can even enable you to do both at the same time. With top-notch sound quality and a comfortable fit, these headsets are a must-have for any serious rider. Compatible with a variety of helmets, these Bluetooth® headsets make it easy to stay in touch on your next ride.

Also Best for Phone Calls

Coming in, loud and clear: these Bluetooth headsets are our best choices for those needing to make or take a quick call while they’re still on the road. Connect these headsets directly to your smartphone, and enjoy crystal-clear communications thanks to advanced noise control for both incoming and outgoing audio, as well as stereo sound and automatic audio boost that helps counteracts the natural noise of the road.  

Best Bluetooth Helmet

Discover the ultimate combination of safety and technology with our top-rated Bluetooth® motorcycle helmets. These helmets provide exceptional protection while keeping you connected on the road, allowing you to enjoy your ride while staying in touch with your friends, family, and fellow riders. Plus, when you’re not on call, you can enjoy the finer details of your favorite tunes with hi-def speakers that provide more bass and improved sound quality. 

Bluetooth Motorcycle Helmet & Headset FAQs

What is Bluetooth and how does it work?

Using short-range wireless signals to transmit data between devices, Bluetooth has revolutionized communications and audio technology in a variety of applications—and motorcycle riding is no different. Bluetooth connections permit headsets and headphones to be paired with compatible devices like smartphones and GPS devices, which can come in handy for riders on both long treks and quick trips.

How is Bluetooth used for motorcycle riding?

For starters, as part of an intercom system, riding groups can communicate while on the move, without having to stop, remove their helmets, or take their hands off of their bike to try and gesture. Riders can also easily make and receive calls to and from those that aren’t out on the road with them.

Plus, whether riding solo or as part of a group, Bluetooth-compatible helmets and headsets can make the ride more enjoyable, enabling bikers to listen to music, podcasts, audiobooks—whatever helps them get the most out of their time on the road. Meanwhile, they can also be used along with GPS systems and smartphones to get turn-by-turn directions hands-free, making it easier to get to your final destination. 

Is Bluetooth Safe to Use While Riding?

Using Bluetooth® while riding a motorcycle can be safe as long as certain precautions are taken. Here are a few tips to consider:

  1. Choose the right Bluetooth device: It's essential to choose a high-quality Bluetooth® headset that's specifically designed for motorcycle use. Look for features like active noise control, wind noise reduction, and high-definition audio to ensure clear communication.
  2. Use a Bluetooth headset with voice activation: Avoid taking your hands off the handlebars by using a Bluetooth® helmet or headset that works with voice activation. This will allow you to make calls or listen to music without having to fumble with your phone or take your eyes off the road ahead.
  3. Set volume levels carefully: Make sure to set the volume levels of your Bluetooth headset at a moderate level so you can still hear the surrounding traffic noise and emergency sirens.
  4. Don't get distracted: There’s no escaping that Bluetooth can be a potential distraction if not used properly and with care. Keep your focus on the road and avoid getting engrossed in phone calls or music to help stay safe.

Bluetooth Helmets vs. Bluetooth Headsets

Riders looking to bring Bluetooth to their on-the-road experience have two options: Bluetooth helmets and Bluetooth headsets.

Bluetooth helmets not only help protect your head but help you stay connected with other riders over a hands-free comms system. Bluetooth capabilities are commonly found in modular helmets that come with the sound system—including a microphone and speaker—already fully integrated sound system. 

Bluetooth headsets on the other hand are separate from the protective headgear, though many headsets are designed to be comfortably worn with a full-face helmet. Attached to the helmet, weather-resistant headsets can keep riders in touch to navigate harsh conditions.
