Review on Motikom MPlus BT Intercom Headphones

Pros:

The MPlus by Motikom is a personal BT communication system developed as an ongoing Indiegogo activity. wBW does not always do or get to do reviews on products under active development but Motikom offered up the MPlus late last year…and here we are. From form, fit and function perspectives the MPlus is unique, with attributes making it very well suited for so many other activities as well. The Neckband piece sits around the neck and over the shoulders and collarbone and can be shaped for a conforming comfortable fit. The HD stereo headset earpieces on long leads use ergonomic changeable Ecofit Gel seals for noise protection, Ear Tip pieces provide extended comfort and audio driver components create an excellent listening environment. Audio input is via surface-mounted microphones on the left and right sides or a detachable helmet mounted boom or thin wire microphone. The BT Intercom has a range of up to 150m and the system’s patented Active Hybrid Dynamic Noise Cancellation feature provides five levels of noise management. The MPlus is a different rendering of a personal BT headset system with a motorcycling focus; but is truly useful for a host of other activities, providing a great return on the investment.

Over the winter months, in digging further into this new product, some great information and constructive dialogue ensued with the development team to provide valuable insights into how this evolving product came about and the direction being taken.

But before we jump into specifics, there are a couple of relevant motorcycling challenges that need to be identified and kept in mind as this review unfolds…

First off is that motorcycling is a noisy experience and secondly, the ‘noisy experience’ always intrudes when trying to communicate while riding – n’est-ce pas? And many of us spend a lot of time (and money) in managing or trying to manage both.

While the noise issue is addressable to varying degrees, it is never really eliminated. But the second is (far) more manageable, although it never ceases to amaze me how little attention, we (actually) pay to address or resolve this matter.

Motikom is the brand name for Audikom Technik Limited, a company founded in 2018 and headquartered in Hong Kong but with German connections. The company focuses on creating and adapting advanced acoustic and communication technologies to develop innovative sound products for consumers.

In October 2019, Motikom announced the launch of an Indiegogo Campaign to bring the ‘Multipurpose Motorcycle Communication Neckband’ or, the MPlus through development to product.

Designed for motorcyclists (and outdoor activity enthusiasts) the MPlus is touted as the world’s first crossover headphone system with noise cancelling and Bluetooth (BT) Intercom for motorcyclists. A specific goal of the MPlus is to provide a personal communication headset for motorcyclists that addresses two of the biggest challenges facing motorcyclists: one of course being noise and the other, given use of a communication capability, how to provide audio – input and output, comfortably, while riding.

Motikom feels that most products on the market are bulky, expensive and can be unreliable. As well, many systems lack portability and are not easily transferable between multiple helmets necessitating additional investment for additional components or even multiple systems. Related to this portability, Motikom also has another objective – to provide a solution that has many applications, mounted or dismounted; and to that end, the Motikom does indeed provide a lot of versatility for virtually any type of activity.

The MPlus system uses Bluetooth v5.0 with its enhanced protocols, simplified secure connectivity, fast switching, and excellent power efficiencies. Sitting around the neck, the system uses in-ear stereo headset pieces while providing multi-device pairing and a BT intercom for full duplex (two-way) communication between two MPlus headsets up to 150m (490ft)

The MPlus by Motikom is one of the most well presented and well packed kits received for quite some time; and while everyone seems to be getting on the packaging standards bandwagon (all good), the Motikom, and IASUS Concepts retail packaging is tops in my book. Each MPlus comes carefully and protectively secured in its own high-quality durable perimeter zippered storage/carry case with the in-ear speakers and leads nestled securely in a foam form. Three lightweight boxes, all marked with their contents, hold system components and mounting pieces packed in recyclable material bags.

In lifting the main MPlus Neckband or collar, with its in-ear speaker inserts dangling on their leads out of the carry case, the piece is at once quite lightweight but with some heft and a solid feel, with the weight focused on the front, for a reason (see Form and Fit). The Neckband is well formed and smoothly finished with flush mounted audio pickups and controls, along with rotating bezel controls on the end of each side; it looks well prepared for rugged exterior use.
