Ok, so we all know that we can buy individual blue tooth unit for each individual headset. My question is: is there a way to add a bluetooth unit to my existing wired headsets with buying individual units for each headset? What do you think?

Bluetooth is like the string between two cans that kids use to talk with each other. It carries the signal from one can to the other. Doesn’t matter if the cans are the same size or brand but there has to be a can with a hole that receives string (Bluetooth) on both ends. No can, no sound. Bluetooth is an industry standard for moving data wirelessly from one receiver to another. That doesn’t mean that the receiver is designed to do same thing when Bluetooth gets it there. Bluetooth is just a data transfer wireless standard. Some headsets may have features that the transmission end (your bike or the Bluetooth transmitter) don’t translate well. There is the main problem.

Hope this helps.

Are you trying to connect a Bluetooth phone or GPS into your bikes sound system? There is a unit that can be installed to do that. J&M makes one for the GoldWing.

I don't know if it will ONLY work with Sena products, but check out the Sena Freewire: https://www.sena.com/product/freewire/

Update: So...I bought a new Sena headset (20S Evo) with the Freewire - LOVE IT!!! Totally wireless connection to all audio sources the bike handles, including the CB (not that I use that). The Freewire is now housed in the left fairing pocket. Being plugged in to the power socket means that it turns on and off automatically with the ignition key and it stays fully charged at all times so I only have to worry about charging the headset occasionally.

My only complaint is: Sena makes the headset with the ability to link to two different phones, but does not make the Freewire with the ability to link with two different headsets. So you need to buy a second Freewire device for the passenger headset. More money, but so much better!

For those of you that don't have a Sena headset, I have verified that the Sena Freewire device WILL easily connect with other Bluetooth headsets (tried it with an older model Scala - the Q2Pro) - so you do not need to buy a new headset to use this same set up. The big bonus to the Sena headset (compared to the Scala) is that incoming audio from other sources (such as an intercom with your passenger or a phone call) does not completely turn off your music - you can listen to the music quietly in the background while still carrying on your conversation. The Scala (and likely other devices) are a one-source-at-a-time system.
