Duocom – Communication & Protection for Motorcylists

On a motorcycle, good, clear reception of an audio signal is generally difficult above speeds of 50 mph due to the competing wind and ambient noise levels. The use of hearing protection can safeguard the ears from noise induced hearing damage but does little to improve the wearer’s ability to hear clear sound. Turning the volume up to high levels will allow the user to hear but also increase the possibility of hearing damage.

Utilising the knowledge developed supplying Motor Grand Prix, Formula 1, Word Rally and Touring car teams, Duocom was developed over a two-year period in conjunction with the Metropolitan Police and The National Crime Squad. Duocom incorporates the specially developed Biopact hearing protection filters into custom moulds together with special mini transducers.

Like the Biopact hearing protectors Duocom is tailored to the individual from impressions taken of the users ears and is manufactured in soft durable silicone allowing their use over long periods of time.

Duocom is supplied with a standard 31/4mm jack plug termination for use with walkman/minidisk etc but can be adapted for connection to most audio sources.

Duocom represents the only custom communication system certified as a hearing protector and offers a solution to the problem of reception of sound at speed.
