Sound

9 comments

Where is the microphone on the K2 I’m getting very tinny sound quality. It could be where I have mounted the main unit. Which is in the tool box of my Suzuki C50T wrapped in bubble wrap. Any ideas welcomed.

The Microphone was inside of DVR.

 

Please do not wrap the DVR by bubble wrap. let DVR to release heat freely.

Does the K2 have external microphone input capability?

The K2 does not have it.

We made the external microphone input on the C5, but seems like no riders are interested, so did not make it on the K2.

Bummer. Sound is pretty bad as I mounted under seat. External mic would have been nice

Is there any plans to improve the sound recording quality of the K2?

Agree with the other posts, the sound quality is an issue that needs to be addressed.

It has been on the improving list.

 

To get DVR to be waterproof, the internal mic was set inside of DVR and covered by the rubber.

The sound is OK if DVR on the open space.

 

The challenges is the DVR under seat, that also impact the sounds pick up.

 

You can try the different position and get a bit change on sounds.

I would like to discuss with you all about the sounds improvement.

 

You can hear the sounds from below,

The first three has distortion sound , and moved the DVR's position away from the engine and fixed it without movement, got the last two videos, and sounds are far better.

The mic is inside of DVR, so fix the DVR without vibration, movement is important. have clearance around DVR help to pick sounds.

 

Can you help to check your DVR and make change to see if that helps?

 

Let's work together to see what impacts the sounds and get the solution.

  • Had the K2 for 5 days now. Overall its pretty good. I have a few issues that I need to look into. 1 - The lens seems to black out in the bottom (say 4 and 8 O'Clock) A bit like the lens has Glaucoma... 2 - I start my bike, put helmet, gloves on, ride off, but recording doesn't start until I am a few miles away, has to be at least 5 minutes after setting off, and maybe 6 minutes after starting the bike. An I supposed to wais 6 minutes before setting off? 3 - I have to do something with how I transfer the files, WiFi just doesn't cut it. My bike (R1250GS Adventure) automatically powers off after X minutes, not sure exactly how many, to preserve the battery, the WiFi hasn't managed to transfer a 3 minute file before the bike powers off. I cant view from the bike, stream, as it doesn't stream, it just jitters from frame to frame. I have an iPhone XS Max if that makes any difference. So far I have not been able to download or view any recording, only when setting up on live view. On the plus side, it only took 30 minutes to set up on the bike, only having to remove the tank panel. Does anyone have any thoughts on my three issues?
  • After the firmware v61 update, I noticed the blue light on the power transformer never goes off - no matter how long the bike is off. Is this normal? What could possibly be powering this other than my battery?
  • I'm at a slight disadvantage, as my bike is still in a container ship, travelling back to the US, but I'll see if I can make my point clearly enough. I've been told that if I connect to the K2, using WiFi, and the K2 App on my cell phone, that the time would be correctly set within the K2. I'm afraid that this is not correct, at least it's not correct under a few sets of circumstances. First of all, in certain parts of the world, you need to set your phone to override the current time, and set it manually. For instance, all of China uses a single timezone (Beijing time), but my iPhone got confused, and thought that there were multiple time zones, and so, I had to override the time setting. As a result, although I connected my iPhone to the K2WiFi, and then enabled the IOS app, and selected settings, I still ended up with a situation where the time on the K2 was at least 1 hour different from the time on my phone. Throughout my trip, I often tried to get the time of the K2 to be properly set, and I think that I achieved it only once. In all other cases, it was between 1 and 2 hours off. So, my question is, why don't you allow me to set the time, or select the time zone within the K2, rather than relying on using the Phone? As IOS versions on the phone change, it is likely that they'll handle time zones differently, perhaps forcing you to make odd choices in some cases, but if I was able to manually set the time zone in the K2, we eliminate any chance that the system will have the wrong time. The outcome, if you want to set the time, connect to the K2 over WiFi, set the time, and exit. It's just about perfect, and it addresses all of the possible irregularities that exist as we travel around the world. Thoughts?
