Aogochi AddSound: Wireless helmet sound system
Wireless helmet sound system
With the AddSound from Aogochi, a new wireless helmet sound system comes from Japan that uses the helmet shell as a sound body.
March 8th, 2021
Does the helmet shell sound familiar to you? Yes, that also relies on the same functional principle Headwave TAG system. The AddSound system differs from its German counterpart in terms of details and design.
Docks with an adapter
The AddSound, which is waterproof according to the IPX5 standard, is attached to the helmet with an adapter system. To do this, two adapter rings must be glued to the helmet shell. The actual sound system is then latched into this. The docking takes place via snap locks, as they are also known from suction cup systems. The AddSound system, which weighs just under 200 grams and measures 62 x 180 x 52 millimeters, should be securely attached to the helmet. In the event of an accident, however, it should just as easily be detached from it. The actual sound depends heavily on the mounting position and the properties of the helmet shell.
The music, or the communication for a navigation system, comes via a Bluetooth connection. AddSound offers an app with an integrated equalizer for Android and iOS specially tailored to the helmet system. Since AddSound relies on two stimulator elements, stereo sound is offered. An integrated microphone socket also allows a microphone to be connected. The integrated battery is recharged via a micro USB type B connection. Two hours are given as charging time.
Speed-dependent volume control
How long the 1,000 mAh battery lasts when driving depends on the speed driven, because the AddSound system is speed-dependent. This means that an integrated acceleration sensor detects changes in speed and adjusts the volume accordingly. The operating time is between 5 and 18 hours. The entire system is switched on or off by a button. During operation, it can be put into sleep mode or woken up again by simply tapping on the helmet shell. If the helmet is removed, the system recognizes this and switches to sleep mode to save power.
The AddSound system is available in black and white. The right microphone is under development. A software extension with voice control and group chat function is also to come. AddSound is currently only marketed in Japan. The price is the equivalent of around 230 euros.
