never used one, but got to say that the very idea is scary. On a motorcycle you are one squirrel or dog or car pulling out away from disaster, and you need all your wits about you all the time. Talking on the phone is not what you need to be doing, it's too much of a distraction. Studies have shown that drivers talking on the phone are distracted about as much as if they were drunk......While it might be ok for you, we all have a responsibility to others out there to ride safely. Not meaning to sound too high and mighty so I apologize in advance. Just stating my opinion.
I was actually looking because the helmet would allow my wife and I to communicate without all the wires, and to listen to music. I do appreciate what you are saying about the phone option, but that's not why I want the helmet.
Have tried a Caberg with the Caberg Bluetooth system. Bluetooth part DOA(Dead on Arrival). Sent straight back for replacement 2 months ago and still waiting. Now trying Scala Rider which works fine but inaudible above 50mph. Not sure if it is the helmet or the installation.
UK police have a system based on Nolan helmet with "Genesis Communications" ear pieces and bluetooth/bike to bike sender. It is supposed to be operable upto 130mph for both speech and reception. A police rider has confirmed it to be "crystal clear to well above 100".
Unfortunately costs about £700/$1050. Now I know where my taxes go.
Thinking about V-Can 210. Much cheaper.
Bluetooth is for use with GPS.
Have also tried several "earpiece" type bluetooth devices but they become painful after a short time due to pressure from the helmet.
I have the blueant interphone helmet kit and so far haven't had any problems. It does telephone and intercom b/w other units, but not music. When recieving a call you don't have to push a button to answer. the adhesive that comes with it is worthless but the clip works well.
avg price is about $110/pc on amazon
