Cardo Scala Rider G9x Headset 3.6 5 14 14
Scala rider G9X Very Helpfull in a party, also easy to install and pairing with your accesories, there are vídeos on youtube that helps to understand all the functions of the scala rider g9x December 29, 2014
Very nice unit I had concerns that it would install on my Scorpion EXO 900, but to my surprise it did... Took about 45 min. The sound quality and volumn is good. The only complaint is that the control button are difficult with a gloved hand. It's great that the VOC works so well. When receiving calls, my girlfriend and daughter didn't realize that I was on the bike! December 1, 2014
Great idea, but it can be better The Scala rider is great. I don't regret the high price tag one bit. There's so much good, but it is not absent from the bad. Sound quality could definitely be better, and the music playing mode is super confusing, as you'll be riding and it will turn on automatically, or shut off for no reason. At that point you have to either try and fiddle with unlocking your phone while you're riding(darn near impossible unless it's mounted on your bike somewhere) or pull over and fix it. Otherwise, I love it. Grttingn to talk with whoever I'm riding with is fantastic. I've never had an issue pairing up as well. September 8, 2014
Use With Ear Buds I had the G9 version but was disappointed with the audio quality, namely the volume level. I also did not like that I could not wear ear plugs anymore because I would not be able to hear the sound. The new G9X addressed both of those issues for me with the versatility to where ear buds for both sound clarity and hopefully sound noise protection. I still installed the speakers but I don't think I will ever use them. Now with the ear buds, I don't even have to have the volume at the maximum level anymore. The G9X has a lot of features, like the G9, but I probably won't use most of them. Because of this, the functionality of the unit is not too complicated. Just read the manual and familiarize yourself with the product. It starts to be intuitive once you use it. Overall the unit is a high quality piece and I feel like it can withstand any weather conditions I ride in. I would recommend it-with ear buds. August 18, 2014
Good stuff! I purchased the g9x this spring, riding with friend is much easier with this device! I had some issues with sound quality and volume, but I swapped the provided speakers with a set tracks hd's and the sound is clean. I would recommend this product with alternate speakers~ August 11, 2014
Much improved The 9x is much improved over my previous "4". It is easier to use because of the additional button and where it is placed. The two ridges added to separates the buttons make it much easier to find the correct buttons with you gloves on. I really like the feature that when your buddy is out of intercom range it defaults to the cellphone and calls them. When one of us takes a wrong off ramp, we don't play hide and seek any more. Sound volume is improved, quality is as good as you're going to get without going to inner ear inserts. I don't usually ride with more than one other so can't speak to the 1+8 feature. The new boom Mike setup for modular helmets is a great improvement. Not sure about quality at this point. Lost connection on one speaker recently but it came back...hmmm. In the past they have been very efficient with warrantee claims...(the old boom mikes used to break off after a few thousand miles of windage stress.) Can now connect to my cell and iPad or GPS simultaneously which although it sounds over the top,mis actually useful and handy. I never ride without it. July 21, 2014
meh Too many features for my old brain to figure out. This is much harder than programming my VCR. It works great in the driveway. As soon as we get on the road, I can no longer communicate with the other bike. When we stop as a stoplight, I pull up next to the other bike, open my face shield and try to talk to him, the Scala says "Ok. Radio on." Then it blasts loud static into my ears. The buttons are too difficult to operate with gloves on. The right earphone only works sometimes. It is often crackley. Maybe eventually I will be able to get the darn thing to work, but right now it is an endless source of frustration. June 23, 2014
Nice Improvement Own the G9. Upgraded to the G9x. Nice improvement. Only issue I have with it, is they have too many buttons. Wish they could make it simpler. Great Volume, Great Battery life, Nice FM radio reception. Pretty easy computer interface (won't work on Mac unless you have PC emulator of some sort). June 18, 2014

A shopper asked: I cannot listen to my music when I'm paired with other riders, some of whom are on the G9. Ideally the device should automatically fall back to my music channel, when there is no conversation on the intercom…as of now, i end up listening to road noise, background noise via other riders mics…is there a specific setting to enable this?
