abunda_amazon_reviews So my husband and I finally had the time to ourselves and went for a run. We are not techie at all. We watch some you tube videos to install the talk pack bold duo into our helmets. The video was excellent too. Showed all kinds of helmet. I charged the packs overnight. Took us about 30 mins to install in the helmet. Am very glad we bought the jbl. The sound was crystal clear and the bass did come through fine. Yes was very pricey but So worth it. I figureD if you’re going on a couple to a few hour cruise and you’re sightseeing and going places you’ve never been before you’ll want to talk to your spouse or partner on some cool things you see like we do. We are about to hit 50 so going for a cruise and able to listen to our music without having to fumble with your cell phone is a plus. I had my purse inside our saddle bag and was able to listen to the music fine. So this is my take on it. With the duo you’re able to individually listen to your own music but still be connected to your partner thru the intercom. There is no wind noise whatsoever. Their white noise cancellation is excellent. You don’t hear any wind noise like you do on cell phones. Your partner will not hear your music or vice verse. The Bluetooth allows the connectivity to both the cardo talk pack and you stay connected to your smart phone at the same time. It was perfect. When you spoke the music soften a bit so you can hear each other and then the music would come back to original volume. I love the “hey cardo” function similar to Siri and bixby on smart phones. You can pick up phone calls with a touch. Increasing volume was cool. It’s a turning wheel on the talk pack. Now one con was the instructions showed I could share my music with my husband but was not able to do that yet. Still need to figure that out. I have a shoei helmet and my husband has a no name brand helmet that the front face lifts up. He used the half part mic. I used the full mic. You can’t even tell it’s inside the helmet. We both used the stick pad onto the outside of the helmet instead of the clip. The clip is a joke. All the helmets are thicker by design nowadays anyway. We both ended up using the adhesive to stick the talk pack clip onto the helmet. The video says to let the adhesive sit for 24 hours. We didn’t know that and we wanted to try it out. We still went out to try it. The adhesive as fine after 1 hour. This allows you to remove for charging. My shoei is very well insulated so the music And sound was great. I was totally impressed. I’ve had jbl before so wasn’t surprised but was still impressed. Never used an intercom before in a helmet. We went for a two hour ride and the battery didn’t die. I am very excited about The fact we can intercom with other riders and may be able to connect with them too to talk but that may be beyond our tech knowledge may have to trial and error it when opp comes. We may need to have same brand. Will have to read more into that. If you’re a hard core bike rider or a weekend road warrior it’s a must have if you’re with a partner. For individuals, the music alone to listen to on rides and be able to pick up calls and such is great. We also used a cell phone holder for motorcycles that held the phone in place by pinching the phone in the middle and has silicone bands that stretched around the corners of the phone for added security. We went along back roads over hills and some roads had some holes and unevenness and the phone didn’t budge. So overall it took us no longer than 30-40 mins to install, turn on, Bluetooth search for the talk pack, read on how to turn on music (minus the overnight charging) and we were out the door to go pick up some to go sushi for dinner. Charging Doesn’t take that long but I did it for the first time use. My husband didn’t have any music downloaded to his Samsung so at first we thought it didn’t work but we turned on his MixerBox list an app on his phone and he could hear his music fine. I love this product and it is so worth it. I hope this was helpful.;;Reviewed in the United States on May 21, 2020;;5.0 out of 5 stars;;Cardo for dummies;;Amazon Customer;;;The first thing I noticed about these intercoms was their build quality. What an improvement over my Sena 20S Evo's! The second thing I noticed was the ease of installation into my Shoei Neotec. The third thing I noticed was far better sound quality. Even when traveling well above the interstates speed limit! The fourth thing that amazed me was the pairing. Do it once and forget it! Intercom clarity is better than Sena's too. The range is about the same, but right up until you lose the other intercom its crystal clear. These intercoms are way better than the Sena products. Even the voice commands and the FM radio work at all speeds! FM radio range is the same as in my truck! Try that with a Sena product, if the radio works at all. Battery life is great also. 3 days of communicating, and interfaced with my Sena Freewire, for over 12 hours a day! Try that with a Sena product! I can also vouch that these units are 100% waterproof after riding 3 days in downpours. I can only hope their customer service is better, but how will I find out since these are really high quality and work in all conditions! I'm very happy with this purchase and I highly recommend these intercoms.;;Reviewed in the United States on January 12, 2020;;5.0 out of 5 stars;;Far better than a Sena 20S or 30K!;;TimU;;;Cardo Packtalk Bold JBL. The communication is very clear and our group of 5 had no problem hearing each other. We had one non-cardo unit for a total of 6 riders, dual sport on pavement/dirt roads. I think the one non-cardo hooked up to one Cardo rider via bluetooth. Somehow this then transmitted through the entire group via DMC. But....do yourself a favor and make sure everybody has a Packtalk on DMC The addition of the bluetooth unit caused a lot of poor quality comms, but when it was just DMC riders it was really good. Music adds to the riding experience. I am using Spotify on my phone and it plays through the Packtalk without issue. I can voice command it to volume up and down, and next/previous track. So far. Not sure if I can get it to pause music and start music with voice commands on Spotify. I just hit play on the phone and then start riding. Works fairly well. I have added the non-JBL kit to my dirt helmet so that I can transfer the unit between helmets. JBL does sound a bit better, but speaker placement directly over your ear or as close as possible is more important than JBL or no JBL. Overall I am very happy with the unit. But, with my dirt helmet, on my dual sport with no wind screen, above about 45mph the wind noise makes it not as pleasant or easy to listen to music. On my street bike with JBL, different helmet, wind screen!, you can still hear the music very well at higher speeds. Very nice product so far.;;Reviewed in the United States on August 31, 2019;;4.0 out of 5 stars;;Comms and music really make riding more fun.;;Mark_S;;;I really wanted to like this headset. After coming from a Sena SMH10 for years, I found this to be very cumbersome to use due to the many available features. I know that most can be controlled by the app, but who can actually ride a bike and push the little buttons on the screen to control the phone while riding through the canyons. Not me... There are three buttons and a roller (button as well) The combination of presses perform different things. I find myself disconnecting calls switching radio, etc. by mistake. I know it will take some getting used to, but overall the sound quality is night and day better than the Sena. After trying to deal with their tech support and they stopped sending replacement units due to a design flaw, I gave up and decided to never buy another one of the headsets. The Cardo had great reviews and I have heard great things about their support. This is what got me to buy this in the first place. I would have given it 5 stars if they can just figure out simpler way to use it. Finding the different buttons with gloves on is not easy and having so many just makes it that much more difficult to use. Just make sure you are connected with your group before you leave for your ride.;;Reviewed in the United States on June 16, 2020;;4.0 out of 5 stars;;Great sound and lots of features;;Kevin

We may need to have same brand. Will have to read more into that. If you’re a hard core bike rider or a weekend road warrior it’s a must have if you’re with a partner. For individuals, the music alone to listen to on rides and be able to pick up calls and such is great. We also used a cell phone holder for motorcycles that held the phone in place by pinching the phone in the middle and has silicone bands that stretched around the corners of the phone for added security. We went along back roads over hills and some roads had some holes and unevenness and the phone didn’t budge. So overall it took us no longer than 30-40 mins to install, turn on, Bluetooth search for the talk pack, read on how to turn on music (minus the overnight charging) and we were out the door to go pick up some to go sushi for dinner. Charging Doesn’t take that long but I did it for the first time use. My husband didn’t have any music downloaded to his Samsung so at first we thought it didn’t work but we turned on his MixerBox list an app on his phone and he could hear his music fine. I love this product and it is so worth it. I hope this was helpful.

Far better than a Sena 20S or 30K!
The first thing I noticed about these intercoms was their build quality. What an improvement over my Sena 20S Evo's! The second thing I noticed was the ease of installation into my Shoei Neotec. The third thing I noticed was far better sound quality. Even when traveling well above the interstates speed limit! The fourth thing that amazed me was the pairing. Do it once and forget it! Intercom clarity is better than Sena's too. The range is about the same, but right up until you lose the other intercom its crystal clear. These intercoms are way better than the Sena products. Even the voice commands and the FM radio work at all speeds! FM radio range is the same as in my truck! Try that with a Sena product, if the radio works at all. Battery life is great also. 3 days of communicating, and interfaced with my Sena Freewire, for over 12 hours a day! Try that with a Sena product! I can also vouch that these units are 100% waterproof after riding 3 days in downpours. I can only hope their customer service is better, but how will I find out since these are really high quality and work in all conditions! I'm very happy with this purchase and I highly recommend these intercoms.

Comms and music really make riding more fun.
Cardo Packtalk Bold JBL. The communication is very clear and our group of 5 had no problem hearing each other. We had one non-cardo unit for a total of 6 riders, dual sport on pavement/dirt roads. I think the one non-cardo hooked up to one Cardo rider via bluetooth. Somehow this then transmitted through the entire group via DMC. But....do yourself a favor and make sure everybody has a Packtalk on DMC The addition of the bluetooth unit caused a lot of poor quality comms, but when it was just DMC riders it was really good. Music adds to the riding experience. I am using Spotify on my phone and it plays through the Packtalk without issue. I can voice command it to volume up and down, and next/previous track. So far. Not sure if I can get it to pause music and start music with voice commands on Spotify. I just hit play on the phone and then start riding. Works fairly well. I have added the non-JBL kit to my dirt helmet so that I can transfer the unit between helmets. JBL does sound a bit better, but speaker placement directly over your ear or as close as possible is more important than JBL or no JBL. Overall I am very happy with the unit. But, with my dirt helmet, on my dual sport with no wind screen, above about 45mph the wind noise makes it not as pleasant or easy to listen to music. On my street bike with JBL, different helmet, wind screen!, you can still hear the music very well at higher speeds. Very nice product so far.

Great sound and lots of features
I really wanted to like this headset. After coming from a Sena SMH10 for years, I found this to be very cumbersome to use due to the many available features. I know that most can be controlled by the app, but who can actually ride a bike and push the little buttons on the screen to control the phone while riding through the canyons. Not me... There are three buttons and a roller (button as well) The combination of presses perform different things. I find myself disconnecting calls switching radio, etc. by mistake. I know it will take some getting used to, but overall the sound quality is night and day better than the Sena. After trying to deal with their tech support and they stopped sending replacement units due to a design flaw, I gave up and decided to never buy another one of the headsets. The Cardo had great reviews and I have heard great things about their support. This is what got me to buy this in the first place. I would have given it 5 stars if they can just figure out simpler way to use it. Finding the different buttons with gloves on is not easy and having so many just makes it that much more difficult to use. Just make sure you are connected with your group before you leave for your ride.
