Not sure how it will cope with continuous noise of the motorcycle but if I can find my **** earphones after unpacking from Australia I'll let you know.

Seems it's fine if the site is to be believed and being able to set the level is superb

On A Motorbike

We asked a biker who routinely wears earphones to hear his Sat Nav App to test Awareness! for a few days and give us his verdict.

Before placing his helmet on, he put his Apple earphones on (with inline microphone) and set the Sat Nav’s sound level, he has to have it quite loud to hear the directions above the sound of his bike’s engine revving.

He turned Awareness! on and adjusted the mic volume, he found it best at about 90%. Awareness! AutoSet the microphone threshold but our tester found that revving the bike hard triggered the microphone so he tweaked it manually to around 80%.

Finally he zipped up his leathers, put his iPhone in his top jacket pocket with the wire tucked in, leaving the microphone exposed to the side of his collar, then set off.

I could hear a police siren long before I normally would…
‘Amazing’ was the first word he said as he unmounted, “I could hear a police siren long before I normally would. Occasionally a loud car would trigger the mic but I didn’t mind that, it let me know how near it was. My full face helmet dulls a lot of the outside noise and using Awareness! felt like taking cotton wool out of my ears, It actually felt more natural with Awareness! on.”

Interesting. I wonder if using this app would be a legal defense against charges for wearing headphones while riding?
