1.0 out of 5 stars | Cardo Packtalk Bold was a major disappointment
Style: Bold Size: Single Pack
I really was hoping to love this headset but I found it to be seriously flawed. 1 - I installed it on my HJC IS MAX -2 helmet last night and this morning took it for a test ride. Cardo boosts about being in partnership with JBL and on the box, it says, "Now with the powerful, immersive sound of JBL" so I expected a quality sound. The sound is very low and w/o bass. I read quite a few reviews about the inferior sound quality but had to experience it for myself. At highway speeds (75 MPH), with my full face helmet and the volume at max, the sound was barely noticeable. I made a stop to adjust the speakers but still had the same issue. 2 - I just bought the unit. This was my first time using it and its out of the box new. The sound boom works fine in my house but does not work at highway speeds. Cardo makes the bold claim of "Natural Voice Operation." but what's the point if the unit doesn't work when I need it to. Cardo provides a list of the voice commands but today, none of them worked (while I was riding). 3 - The Cardo app is able to connect to local FM radio. Come on, this is 2019, not many people still listen to FM anymore. And, the sound was full of static. 4 - The app does not connect to the music on my android phone. I rode to Cycle Gear to have one of their techs look at the unit. The gentleman confirmed that all was connected properly but said there must be an issue with my particular unit. At CycleGear, I bought a Sena 10S unit. On the way home, I had a smile on my face. I don't recommend this unit. For the price, there are better options. Perhaps someone who doesn't care about a quality sound will like this unit. For those who do, stay away.

5.0 out of 5 stars | Cardo for dummies
Style: Bold Size: Dual Pack
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.

1.0 out of 5 stars | Worst Customer Support Ever Experienced
Style: Bold Size: Single Pack
I have made many motorcycle accessory purchases, and the Cardo PackTalk Bold is by far the worst experience I have ever had. If I could give it a negative star rating, I would. The product marketing promises to deliver a lot, but falls short on some of the basics. Its voice command recognition usability on normal highway conditions is very poor. The only command I could get it to respond to was an inquiry on "battery status". Trying to get it it to recognize commands such as "radio on", "music on", "speed dial", etc. were efforts in futility. The only good thing I can say about it it is that it does excellent battery life. The JBL speakers are good, but I am not sure that they enhance the sound quality that much. Their website which allows you to "personalize" your Cardo unit is very quirky. I can't get it to recognize my unit half the time and its an exercise in frustration. But, by far and away, the worst thing about this product is its product support. I can't even say it really has product support. They are totally, and I mean totally, non-responsive. When I initially used their email links on their website to inquire about some of the features I was having a hard time getting to work, I was immediately rewarded with an automated response email that said I was assigned a case number and told I could expect a response within 3 working days, or maybe just a little longer due to the "high volume" of support requests (that should have been a clue). Well, a couple of weeks went by and nothing. Then I got an email from Cardo Support! And guess what? They asked me to fill out a survey on their customer support when they had never responded to my inquiry. I was dumbfounded. How could customer service be this bad? But it didn't end there. I figured maybe this was an isolated screw-up and that I should give Customer Support another chance. So I wrote to them again. A week goes by. Then an email from Cardo Support! And this time they inform me: "The community is down at this time. We have a new platform coming soon but I do not have an exact ETA as of this time. Best Cardo Support " Well, that was 3 weeks ago and I have heard nothing since. I would categorically say this has been the worst motorcycle accessory purchase I have ever made. These folks obviously do not give a hoot about customer service after the sale. To me, no customer service means defective product. I wish I could find something good to say about this product that might encourage others to make such a purchase. But I honestly cannot. My final words to potential buyers out there is to stay away from this product. Otherwise you will have the same regrets I have.
