Cardo Scala Rider G9x Powerset 3.9 5 36 36
Great... when they work. But most of the time frustrating. I've been using a G9X Powerset for a year now and I can only say I curse them more than I enjoy. Proper operation is random, and we spend so much time disconnecting and re-pairing, turning them off and back on again, etc, that my girlfriend and I cringe when we start them up before a ride. I'm tech savvy, and keep them updated online with firmware and software upgrades. Three times I have called tech support, and get the same guy each time - very unhelpful. The voice command function would be good, but almost any sound in the helmet triggers the "Radio On" command and you have to scream "Radio Off" multiple times for it to finally disconnect. Always fun in parking lots with people around. According to tech support the only way to solve the issue is to completely disable Voice Command features as there is no way to disable radio. Overall, it feels like Cardo tried to cram as many bell and whistle features into the unit as possible for marketing purposes, rather than keep it reasonably simple and reliable. At the Dallas Motorcycle show I talked to one of the reps and he admitted he has to turn off and re-pair frequently, as well as wait long times for the units to connect. Having spent $500 on them, I've wanted to love them and tried to make them work but have found them to be frustrating in actual use. Next time I'll try Sena. October 21, 2015
FREAKING AWESOME! Love these, Easy to use from device. Easier to configure from computer. Great sound clarity, blue-tooth pairing completely painless, wireless is incredible and I do get approx 1/2 mile (with antenna up - slightly less if I forget to put it up...) Sound is good and clear even at speed although at 70 mph with 3/4 helmet, road noise is getting loud... Still works though. VOX feature is good, but does not always get the commands due to similar sounds i.e music on/intercom... Learning to speak more clearly - a non issue. AGC works very well as do button functions. Using clamp on helmet mount on Shoei J Cruise - great. Sticky pads for boom mic okay, but the mount point is fabric which is compressed during donning and doffing helmet. This "un-sticks" the velcro mounting pads... They offer replacements though and I have free initial replacements and also bought more just-in-case... Going to try second install with the included fixed mic and sticky helmet mount on Shoei Multitec helmet. October 1, 2015
Makes riding very enjoyable with a passenger and music and radio make it even better. The Scala G9 is a very capable intercom with Bluetooth, radio and music. Not the easiest to learn to operate, but once learned, it is very enjoyable to use. September 28, 2015
Totally Disappointed My Sena SMH-10 boom mic went out while at Sturgis. My wife and I were heading to Yellowstone the next day and needed bike-to-bike communications for the trip through Red Lodge and on the Beartooth Hwy to Yellowstone. No one in the area had Sena products. Purchased a Scala Rider G-9X Powerset. Totally disappointed in sound level & quality. Great difficulty communicating. VOX ineffective. FM radios kept coming on randomly on both our systems. We both found the Scala Riders to be such awful products that I am ordering the Sena 20S Dual Pack to replace the Scala Rider G-9X Powerset. Will order a new SMH-10 mount with boom mic and move the older SMH-10s to our half helmets. Don't know what I will do with the Scal Rider G9X Powerset...but it is an extremely inferior product. August 21, 2015
Recommended, but also frustrated I am again awaiting the return of my G9X set from Scala. I purchased the set in 08/2013 while at Sturgis. I use it mainly for Bluetooth function to my iPod. That seems to work well. My partner how ever has not used his much. When he does it seems like there has always been issues with a lot of static and cutting out when we try communicating on the bikes. I had returned the complete set a year ago for the same issue. I have also returned two of the boom mounts for speaker issues. I do wish that some explanation of the issue found would come back from Scala when they return or replace the unit that was having a problem. I usually just get a replacement part with no information at all. I have not given up on the set as yet as I had a 2 year warranty. This last return was scheduled just days before the warranty ran out. I am hoping for resolution to the static issue we have experienced the better part of two years. On the plus side I have had a lot of success with the VOX activation when bluetoothed to my iPod. I do get irritated some times when I happen to say something with the microphone too close to my lips then have things like the radio turn on or music turn off so found that after a command it's best to move the mic out of the way. I would most likely not encourage my friends to purchase this unit but I will most likely continue to use it for music at this point but unless communication quality between the two units improves greatly I doubt that I will be chatting much with my guy while riding. August 17, 2015
DO NOT Purchase Couldn't be more disappointed and aggravated with a product. Complicated instructions, poor sound quality, and stopped working in just over a year. These are advertised to have tons of features, but good luck figuring out how to take advantage of them. Barely even a pamphlet for instructions, and most of what's written is in foreign language. Total frustration trying to figure out anything beyond Bluetooth pairing. Which, by-the-way, completely stopped working in just over a year. As far as sound quality, think cheapest of cheap headphones. For the price I expected hi-fidelity sound, or at the very least medium quality sound. These, unfortunately, have the worse sound quality imaginable. And the right speaker in one headset quit working altogether about a year after purchase. I like the idea of having communication with other riders, but after this experience I'm afraid it's just a gimmick. Cardo or Scala or whatever the name is was supposedly best of the best when we purchased the G9x (which was supposedly the top dog). Unfortunately, there isn't one positive thing I can say about this product. Calling it junk is a compliment! August 8, 2015
Great product Have really enjoyed our G9x headsets. I really like being able to listen to music from my Ipod or phone through the headset.The voice command system is wonderful, love this hands free feature. Cardo makes an excellent product, we have the G4 headsets and upgraded to the G9x for the voice command feature and the music options. July 27, 2015
Excellent!!! I've just started to use it, on short trips and every day, and it has achived almost every expectation. The installation was a bit harder on my Arai Full Face Helmet, but once I got it done, the G9x fitted perfect. The only downside was that I had to send one unit back to the manufacturer because it never turned on. But the checked it and are in the process of sending a new one. I would recomend it!

Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Francis M: I have an Arai that either is or is close to the RX-Q. I think these will fit on any helmet, but they fit on my Arai perfectly. Really like them (was debating between these and the other popular brand, think made by Bell). I took an older version of these on a 2 month trip around south america and they were champs. Decided to stick with Scala, so far so good. Aug 27, 2014

Steven M: I can't answer for those helmets. I have two modular helmets that I have them attached to. A Nolan n 202 and a Shoei ( not sure of model right now). They both were able to take the kit well. The Shoei I had a little difficulty getting the speaker wiring around the back of the helmet since it is molded tight. Aug 27, 2014
Reply to Steven Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Steve R: I have an Arai RX-Q and my wife has a Shoei RF-1100 and these work just fine. Though I will say it fits better on the Arai as the Shoei design dips down on the side more and tends to bump the shoulder when you turn your head. But not a deal breaker. Aug 27, 2014

A shopper asked: Besides being interchangeable, what is the difference between the speakers that come with the G9 and the G9x? I have heard complaints that though thicker, the G9 speakers produced more volume than the thinner G9x speakers. What was your experience between the two?

George D: I have not tried the prior but have G9X and love it. My wife and I have used it while riding for communicating with each other or to listen to Pandora through my cellphones Bluetooth. I have loud pipes on my cruiser and feel the loudness of the speakers are adequate. Even when calling or answering my calls through my cell in the freeway people can hear me and I can hear them fairly well. Im happy with it enough to not replace it with something else. May 28, 2015

Trevor F: I have used the G9X speakers for some 11,000km in Schuberth helmets, and had no problems with them. They don't really seem much different to the G9 speakers I have in another helmet. I haven't tried the 40mm speakers. Jun 28, 2015
Reply to Trevor Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Gary P: The only real differences are the G9x (which I have): you can share music with guest systems and you can plug in your own speakers or ear buds (3.5 mm)

There is a comparison chart on Cardo's website.

I looked through the manual but did not find where connection to an iPhone for music on my iTunes, and my gps will function? Does anyone have any experience using this system wi an iPhone? I'm on an iPhone 5 for now but I'm sure a 6 upgrade is around the corner. Just want to talk with some experienced users first before I buy.

Gary P: I have the G9x and a Garmin Zumo 665. They work great all together.
First you phone must sync to the Garmin and the Garmin to you G9x. This will allow you to get call displayed to the Zumo and you accept them from their directly. It also allows you to get voice based directions at the same time and when on a call the GPS directions go silent.
As for direct connectivity to any music well there is an external connector cable or you can use the wireless A2DP Bluetooth connection (bypassing the GPS). Both will allow you to share the music with the other headset.

Predrag I: The Cardo Scala Rider G9x is pretty good, the voice is clear and there is no background / wind noise. I bought a dual pack for me and my girlfriend, one works amazingly but the other has some issues at times where it would just start to make the typical cutting out / interference noise. Kind of sounds like wind noise, its fixed via turning the bluetooth off and back on, but that is kind of annoying sometimes having to do that while riding and due to my bike being very loud its hard to hear when the bluetooth is off or back on.

JOHN KAPPEYNE J: I bought the Car do in March...I Don,t ride that much, but when I do, I use it. The sound is great, voice commands work well. Bluetooth mobile dials the wrong number sometimes, it does interpret a name wrong.
I found the reception on radio stations adequate, though the antenna could use improvements. Signal gets stronger if I hold my hand touching the unit.
It is a sophisticated piece, that takes a while to learn how to operate.other than that, no regrets.

A S: I can't speak for the Sena 20S specifically, but I bought a pair of Sena SMH10 and after barely 6 months of use it lost its pairing and would not re-pair. I could no longer get it to pair with my phone. Based on manufacturer support recommendation I did a firmware update which was supposed to fix the problem but it did not. I'm stuck with a useless pair of headsets. An online search showed me that many others have had this same problem. I would NEVER buy another Sena of any kind. May 26, 2015

A shopper asked: I am looking to talk bike to bike to two G9 owners and I want to have intercom with my wife on the back. I am not all that interested in connecting to my cell phone. I may want to talk bluetooth to a Garmin GPS. I want to connect my mp3 player hard wire to the headphone and I want the option to connect an in-ear headphone as well as normal in helmet speakers. Will a Q3 allow me to do this or do I need a G9x? Sep 8, 2014

Harold L: Check the comparison index on Cardo's web site and it will show you the features between the models.
A quick look and I think you can get the features you mentioned with the Q3
I went with the G9X

Michael N: You have options. Depending on your hardware and how you set things up. You can use voice commands or not. Example incoming call will auto ignor if you don't say anything. Apr 8, 2014

Al M: Thanks. Can you have it announce the caller by name or number like my Blueant headset does or do you only get a ring? Apr 8, 2014
Michael N: I don't think it can do text to speach from your phone book and announce the caller. I have mine phone paired to the GPS and I see the caller's name on the GPS screen. Apr 8, 2014

Trevor F: The G9x Audio Kit is not yet available to the best of my knowledge, and I have not had a chance to fit my new G9x units, so I cannot tell you whether the G4/G9 unit will fit the G9x mount and work. Suggest you contact Cardo Systems to find out when the G9x Audio Kit will be available and it's compatibility to older units. Feb 19, 2014

A S asked: The G9X states this feature: "Intercom to Mobile: Divert intercom calls automatically
to your mobile phone when out of range" Can you explain how this works with 2 rides each with a bluetooth phone paired with the Scala? Does is dial the other phone and you answer via voice recognition commands? Thankyou

A S: I have dialed and answered my phone from the headset using the VOX functionality and commands, which works great. This is how you can answer an incoming call or make an outgoing phone call.

That said, it is my understanding that when you are out of radio range between the units, the unit will use your phone (with the appropriate contact phone number in your phone) to dial the other phone/headset/rider.

Since your connected to your mobile phone via bluetooth, you speak through the headset through your cell phone through the cellular network to the other phone and other headset...

I get such great range with these headsets, that I have not yet been "beyond range"...

A shopper asked: Can this unit be paired with a 2015 CVO Harley Davidson boom system for gps commands? Apr 12, 2015

Dan V: No Harley still believes in the old fashion cable to communicate . They are not compatible. Even though Harley brags about the Mount Rushmore communication system its really a joke you still have to hook a cable to your helmet and then to your bike to communicate. How out dated is that. My wife and I had a system in 1984 that could communicate without cables. We use the G9X to communicate and listen to our radio.Don't rely on it at all. We just rely on our G9X. Apr 13, 2015

Don M asked: Does the 9X still have the normal 3-5 second delay when switching from intercom to another function, such as music? Feb 19, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Michael N: Yes there is a delay. I counted 4 seconds to go to intercom. I'm not sure if that is consistant to the other modes. It seemed a shorter time when I pushed the voice command button and said "music on". It seemed to come on pretty quick, I didn't count the time. Apr 8, 2014
