20S - Explaining Multitasking

One of the features introduced in the Sena 20S is Audio Multitasking. Audio Multitasking allows you have an intercom conversation while listening to music, the FM radio, or GPS directions at the same time.

  • Intercom + music
  • Intercom + FM radio
  • Intercom + GPS directions

 

Additionally, Audio Multitasking on the 20S also allows you to share music between two headsets.

 

1. To enable the Audio Multitasking feature on the 20S, enter the Configuration Menu by either holding down the Jog Dial for 12 seconds or using the “Configuration” voice command. Rotate the Jog Dial to cycle through the device settings until you hear the voice prompt say “Audio Multitasking”.

2. Press the phone button to enable the “Audio Multitasking” setting.

3. After enabling the Audio Multitasking setting, rotate the Jog Dial till you hear the voice prompt say “Exit Configuration” then press the phone button to confirm.

 

While having an intercom conversation, the stereo audio from a music player such as a phone, the FM radio in the 20S, or the directions from a GPS will be reduced so that you can communicate between other headsets which is controlled by the Intercom-Audio Overlay Sensitivity feature.

 

The Intercom-Audio Overlay Sensitivity feature in the Configuration Menu determines the sensitivity level of the microphone to cause the volume of the non-intercom audio, such as music, to be reduced into the background. The sensitivity level ranges from 1 which is the lowest amount of sensitivity to 10 which is the highest amount. When the sensitivity level is set to 1 then you will need to speak into the microphone loudly because it may be difficult to cause the non-intercom audio to be reduced. When the sensitivity level is set to 10 then you not need to speak loudly into the microphone because it is very easy to reduce the non-intercom audio as it is highly sensitive.

 

Here is how to set the Intercom-Audio Overlay Sensitivity feature:

 

1. To set the Intercom-Audio Overlay Sensitivity feature, enter the Configuration Menu by either holding down the Jog Dial for 12 seconds or using the “Configuration” voice command. Rotate the Jog Dial to cycle through the device settings until you hear the voice prompt say “Intercom-Audio Overlay Sensitivity”.

2. Rotate the Jog Dial to cycle through 1 through 10 and Exit.

3. Press the phone button to change and set the “Intercom-Audio Overlay Sensitivity”.

4. To test the sensitivity level, speak into the microphone to hear a single beep. If you do not hear a beep while testing then the sensitivity level needs to be increased.

5. After setting the Intercom-Audio Overlay Sensitivity setting, rotate the Jog Dial till you hear the voice prompt say “Exit” then press the phone button to exit the Configuration Menu.
