INTERPHONE FBEAT is a Bluetooth® helmet system for entertainment and information while driving a motorcycle.
INTERPHONE FBEAT is compatible with all mobile phones
and GPS navigators with Bluetooth® technology.
The module is covered by a special Weather Protection Skin
membrane making it fully waterproof. Its aerodynamics have
been designed to avoid any disturbances generated by air
turbulence, and to allow water, if raining, to slide away.
Its controls and shape have been designed to allow for quick
and easy identification and access while riding wearing
INTERPHONE FBEAT can be installed on any helmet, without affecting its structure or finish. Once installed, it can be
removed at any time. INTERPHONE FBEAT does not change
the helmet’s certification.
Always give priority to driving your vehicle, not to telephone
During a telephone conversation, or while using the intercom,
reduce your speed and concentrate on your driving.
In bad weather and/or heavy traffic, we recommend pulling
over and stopping before answering.
Always ride carefully and in accordance with the current highway code.
To avoid theft, if leaving the helmet on the motorcycle, INTERPHONE FBEAT is fitted with a quick release button to allow you to remove the external Bluetooth® module and take
it with you.

Active use autonomy is indicative. It has been calculated by
alternating the use of all the INTERPHONE FBEAT functions
and, given the varied use of these; it can vary significantly
from one use to another.
During Intercom communication, one of the two Interphone
or INTERPHONE FBEAT devices has greater battery consumption: this phenomenon is due to the wireless search
procedure the one of the control units performs to remain
connected to the other and can also lead to 60/90 minute
autonomy difference.
On long journeys, to optimise battery duration, we advise enabling Intercom mode only when you wish to communicate,
remaining in stand-by or an alternative mode when not actually communicating.

1.0 Preparation/assembly
InterphoneFBEAT is a modular audio kit made up of a Bluetooth® module (the core of the system) (A), a double slide
support system for the module (E/D) and an audio kit with
a double microphone to be installed inside the helmet (C/B)
Before configuring the InterphoneFBEAT, you should check
the website for software updates that could improve the
performance of the FBEAT. If there are any updates, installation is recommended.
Verify compatibility with the operating system on your PC,
then download the file and the attached instructions that
will guide you through the update process.
1.1 Mounting the bracket on the helmet
The InterphoneFBEAT has two mounting systems (small
plates) (E/D) that you can install on the helmet. Choose the
system that is better suited to the type of helmet you are
Equipped with a sliding latch system, the plates support
and lock the FBEAT Bluetooth® module into position. One
system is applied using an adhesive system (E), and the
other uses a clip (D).
Thanks to the sliding latch system on the plates, the FBEAT
module can easily be removed for recharging, updating,
security against theft, and use on other helmets that have
already been prepared with other kits designed for each
type of helmet.
The kits for an additional helmet all consist of an audio section with earphones/microphone, along with two support
plates for the module.
The kits for an additional helmet are optional and can
have a different structure and operation. For more information, consult the accessory section on our website,
We recommend using the adhesive plate (E) since it is
more aerodynamic and can be placed wherever you like on
the surface of the helmet. This allows you to choose point
that best suits the shape of the helmet shell to maximize appearance and adhesion.
On the other hand, the adhesive plate cannot be repositioned. Once it is applied, it cannot be removed because the
3M adhesive that provides its excellent holding power does
not allow for a change of position. If the plate is removed, it
must be replaced with a new one.
Carefully choose the most suitable point before application.
The clip-on plate (D) is better for those who do not want
to apply permanent adhesive to their helmet or would like
to be able to remove the plate and use the helmet with no
accessories installed.
The clip-on plate requires that the helmet allow part of the
plate to be inserted between helmet shell and cheekpad.
The cheekpads on some helmets are glued or have special
seals that prevent the plate from being inserted correctly or
require the helmet to be modified, which not everyone is
willing to do. In these cases, it’s better to choose the adhesive plate.
Both brackets can only be installed on the left side of the
Installation with (adhesive) plate
Take the adhesive plate, but do not remove the protective
film on the back. Place the plate on the left side of the helmet shell. Now, move it around and find the position where
it will adhere and function best. Before applying it, mount
the FBEAT module on the plate and check whether the position you chose could disturb the driver by causing interference or discomfort (check visor, opening, etc...).
Carefully clean and degrease the point chosen for applying the plate. Do not use strong detergents that could ruin
the paint on the helmet. After cleaning the helmet shell,
remove the protective film from the double-sided adhesive
strip and apply the plate on the helmet. Press quickly on the
plate to attach the strip firmly.
After application, it is a good idea to let the 3M adhesive act
on the helmet for 12 hours before using the helmet.
Installation with the clip-on (removable) plate
Check the type of helmet you have and make sure that the
clip can be inserted between helmet shell and cheekpad.
Otherwise, use the adhesive plate.
Take the clip-on plate, loosen the two screws and remove
the rear section.
On the left side of the helmet, locate the most suitable point
for inserting the clip, slide the rear section of the clip in between the helmet shell and the cheekpad, and let the end
(with the holes for the screws) protrude on the outside. Now,
try to join the front section of the clip onto the rear section.
Depending on the thickness/radius of the helmet, it may be
necessary to use the adapter (J) to compensate for the distance between the two sections so that the clip still adheres
to the helmet shell when the screws are tightened.
Tighten the screws with the screwdriver provided. Do not
use excessive force when tightening the screws. You could
break all or part of the clip.
If you are also using the adapter for the clip, you must replace the two screws installed in the clip with the longer
ones supplied with the unit.
1.4 Turning on/off
Press and hold the MFB button for approximately 3 seconds.
The speaker will sound an acoustic warning and the LEDs will
begin flashing quickly for around 3 seconds.
Subsequently, in stand-by mode, the LED will flash approximately once every 5 seconds.
Press and hold the MFB button. The speaker will sound a prolonged acoustic warning and the LED will flash red prior to
turning off.
1.2 Installing the audio section
Wear the helmet and locate the exact point where your
ears are positioned inside.
If the internal fabric of the helmet allows it, try to apply
the two earphones in the audio kit directly at the points
you determined. The Velcro on the back of the earphone
will often adhere perfectly to the material in the helmet
without the need to use the fabric strip (I) with doubleadhesive. Otherwise, if the material is unmanageable,
apply the strip of fabric at the point you previously determined and place the earphone on the strip.
Put on the helmet once again and check whether the earphones are correctly positioned. They must be centred
and come slightly in contact with your ears.
If the helmet allows it, it’s a good idea to insert the earphones under the cheekpad fabric, which requires more
time and care to accomplish but makes the internal kit
almost invisible and more comfortable.
Thread the cable with plug under the cheekpad and
around the helmet while trying not to lay it over itself or
twist it. Then, pull it out on the left side as far as it will
go. Afterwards, when the plug is connected to the FBEAT
module mounted on the support, you can push the excess cable back inside and leave only as much as you
need on the outside.
2 Pairing
2.1 Telephone
The INTERPHONE FBEAT can be paired to a mobile phone.
After having turned the INTERPHONE FBEAT off, press and
hold the MFB button until the warning light alternates red
and blue flashes. This will take about 8 seconds.
When the light is flashing red/blue alternately perform the
device search from your telephone (refer to the telephone or
navigator manual).
The telephone or navigator will detect the INTERPHONE
FBEAT. Simply select it, and enter the numerical code 0000.
To use with a mobile telephone and GPS navigator at the
same time, see point 2.3.
Microphone (B) - if possible, slide the microphone arm
through the hole in the chin strap and below the cheekpad so that the microphone is more stable and less obtrusive. It should be possible to position the microphone
with foam windscreen (14) in front of your mouth, but it
may be left slightly to the side of the mouth.
After installation is complete, make sure that the wording
MIC on the foam windscreen on the microphone arm faces your mouth and preferably points toward your eyes.
2.2 Intercom
After having turned the INTERPHONE FBEAT off, press and
hold the MFB button until the warning light alternates red
and blue flashes. This will take about 8 seconds.
When both LEDs flash red/blue alternately, press and release
the MFB button on one of the two INTERPHONE FBEATs.
The two INTERPHONE FBEATs are connected when both
LEDs show a fixed blue light.
The InterphoneFBEAT must be charged before use.
Once mounted on the helmet, connect the recharger cable provided (F) to a USB port, then insert the recharger
cable plug into the outlet on the audio kit connector (16)
correctly inserted in the InterphoneFBEAT module.
The charge LED turns orange (7) during charging.
When the battery is fully charged, the LED will turn green.
About two hours are needed to charge the FBEAT module completely. Two modules can be charged together in
around three hours.
We recommend turning the module off before recharging the FBEAT.
2.3 Audio GPS
For an audio connection, GPS NAVIGATORS use the TELEPHONE (headset) profile: to pair the phone during use of the
navigator you must use the specific function on the GPS device. For further information and settings, please consult the
