The set can be found at a discount online.

I'm interested.

I'd like some comments about the sound quality when listening to music. I'm not really interested in phone calls.

The occasional squeal of delight from my girlfriend won't be too bad either but even better with a music background.

Considering the size of the speakers, sound quality isn't bad, somewhat tinny, but listenable. Bose speakers would be much better, but the system is already pricey.

Bose speakers? Eek!

What would be really nice is to be able to have some custom ear molds instead of the speakers.

You could insert and then pop the helmet on. You'd get noise reduction and great sound.

Are you listening Cardo?

I found the volume level unacceptable and when I sent emails to the company for help, I never received a response. I even readjusted the speakers. I will be returning it.

Sound quality, for music, was not very good.

Typical intercom review.....
Doesn't ever address, Does the unit provide side tones??????
Side tones are what allow you to hear your own voice in your own speakers when you talk. If you never used a system with side tones you probably don't think its a big deal. However if you have used a system with side tones then go to one with out it makes it frustrating as it is impossible to modulate and adjust your speaking volume. Otherwise you are either yelling at folks or mumbling but you don't know because you can't hear your own voice....... If this system does not have side tones its a bit expensive..

Their previous generation intercom had sidetone, so i would assume this one does too.

My problem with systems like these is the speakers push against my big ears causing immense pain. I know listening to music on this is impossible but I like them for comuu icatong and answering phone calls. Are these speakers small enough to fit in my arai without killing me? Can I hook a pair of molded earplug speakers to the unit?
