FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Hardware

How does COROS Bone Conduction Technology work?
Bone Conduction bypasses the eardrums and leaves ears open. Sound waves are converted into vibrations delivered through your upper cheekbones. The Cochlea receives the vibrations, bypassing the ear canal and ear drum. For cyclists this is super important because that means you can hear audio AND hear your surroundings as you ride, such as cars and other potentially dangerous obstacles.
What's in the OMNI package?
In the package you will find OMNI, smart remote, smart remote mount kit (smart remote cradle, smart remote mounting tray, two large and two small rubber mounting rings), charging cable, and snap fit visor.
How long does the COROS helmet battery last?
OMNI 8 hours. LINX 10 hours.
Can multiple remotes work on same COROS helmet?
Absolutely. COROS helmets are able to work with multiple remotes without the hassle of moving the remote and mount each time for different bikes. Please refer to page 8 of the COROS Quick Start Guide for remote pairing instructions. Remotes and mount kits are available for purchase in Amazon US store.
How do I use the walkie-talkie function?
A walkie-talkie accessory kit is required for 2-way communication between riders. However, this accessory kit is not currently available from COROS.
They are compatible with 3rd party Bluetooth enabled walkie-talkie devices as a connected headset. Although we cannot guarantee the compatibility.
I can't keep the transducers flat against my cheekbones, any suggestions?
Adjust the tri-glide splitters on each side of the helmet to move closely to earlobes. If you are wearing glasses, try to wear them over the straps to provide extra pressure for speakers to sit against cheekbones.
Why can't I turn off OMNI when charging?
We are aware of this issue and actively working towards getting this updated. We apologize for this inconvenience. One solution for now is to remove OMNI in Bluetooth setting whenever it is charging.
When do I know COROS helmet is fully charged?
Battery percentage can be found within COROS App after pairing with your phone. Normally, it takes 2 hours for a full charge.
How to adjust the bone conduction speakers?
Hold the chin strap to slide the bone conduction speakers up and down. Adjust the tri-glide splitters on each side of the helmet so that the left strap and right strap come together just under the earlobes.
How to adjust the chin strap?
Detach the Velcro band under the chin to release the rest of the chin strap. Adjust the length of the strap and the location of the buckle to create a comfortable, yet firm tightness around your chin and head.
Why is there no sound from the speakers?
Make sure the COROS helmet is powered on and connected to your device via Bluetooth. Then, check if your COROS helmet is selected as the audio output from your device. Make sure the volume level is not set at mute or minimum.
Does OMNI have turning signal function?

Maintenance

How to clean COROS helmets?
Clean the helmet with mild soapy water. Avoid use of specific solvents such as ammonia, bleach, paints, abrasives or hydrocarbons which may damage the helmet and cause it to fail to protect your head in the event of an accident.
How to change the paddings?
Locate the left and right plastic strap of the rear adjustment stabilizer. Each strap snaps into the left and right side of the helmet and holds the foam padding in place.
Once you have unsnapped the plastic strap, you can remove the existing foam padding and replace with the new foam padding. There are Velcro connector points inside the helmet to hold the padding in place.
Make sure both the left and right rear stabilizer straps are secured after replacing the foam and before using your helmet.
