Cardo Scala Rider G4/G9 Mic Set
Decent sound. Plenty of options included for any install
I have had a set of G4's for both my wife and I for the past 3 years. Although I've overall been pleased with the system I've had problems with the head sets. The speakers seem to be the week link when they develop a static sound in one of the channels. This latest head set that I purchased for a new helmet had to be returned right away as it had a bad speaker out of the box. It appears the new 9x headset addresses this allowing to use a regular earbud set? I hope they will be comparable with my G4! Overall a decent product and worth the cost for adding to a dirt or snow helmet to expand use. I will look close at the new sena unit this spring though. Looks like better audio quality and the headsets for additional helmets are half the price. I was very impressed with revzilla with the return process. They made everything very simple.

Excellent way to refurbish your OLD Scala
I have used my Scala G4 for over 4 years and 150k miles plus. Rain, cold, heat, these communication devices hold up to the various riding conditions of on and off road!
I purchased this cradle base because my old base finally wore out. The updated version has a better speaker, and more flexibility in use when it comes to boon or flexible wire microphone. I use the flexible wire mic in my Arai XD4 helmet and it makes it much easier to get my helmet on and off.

Easy to connect in about 20 minutes. Significant sound improvement from earlier version
Have 3 helmets and have the Mic set connected for all helmets. Allows flexibility to use either the new G9 or older G4 (passenger). Mic has smaller sponge which allows ease of placement in helmet (I have a modular). Larger sponge is in the package. Sound quality between rider and passenger is excellent even at speeds approaching triple digits. Rider to Rider is very good at similar speeds and range is more like ¾ mile (antenna up). All required accessories are in the box. Item is very well packaged. I would purchase again.

This item's speakers are a good deal better than what came with my G4 power set. The mic is better in all ways, too. The ability to chose the boom mic or the flat mic is great and would be nice if, for some reason, one of the other mics dies. The clear stick on pad is much much larger than the one that came with my G4, though there is one that is the same as what came with my G4, as well.
I like how the components are all modular now, in that they can be separated from the main housing. Great for if just one component dies.

great for when you have more than one helmet
I like listening to music when I ride and this makes it easy to go from helmet to helmet

Work as advertised
I made the mistake of buying a Cardo Scala G4 for snowmobiles and didn't realize that this essentially means it was for closed face helmets. We have Sharks that are both so not having a boom mic was a distinct disadvantage. Rather than start over we bought these which allowed us not only to use the radio as intended but we used the other bases for two full face helmets that we had that friends will use this winter.
