Cardo Scala Rider Q1 Multiset 4.2 5 5 5
Miles with not much regrets! Unboxing the Q1 trying to find the correct pieces didn't take that long and right the first time. Pairing it with the handphone & GPS is very easy. Initially the speakers produces noises while playing the mp3 from the phone via Bluetooth but it proved to work well the next day. I really like how simple it is do everything on this device especially randomly tuning the saved channels as when I like (#LIKEABOSS). December 14, 2013
like the volume control easy to use Took time to get used to, helmet speaker placement helped after getting correct ear placement, love the radio. Works good if you don't have a radio on bike. December 10, 2013
Great for couples I bought this so my wife and I can chat while she's on the back of the bike with me. It works as advertised. It's not perfect, but it works better than some other similar products we tried. When riding solo I can also make and receive calls and that is cool. We use them on HJC helmets that were designed for use with another product, but these are far better. August 5, 2013
High Quality Product Things I love: 1) The deciding factor for my purchase was that you could use your ear buds in lieu of the provided speakers. However, I found that if I use the speakers and put ear plugs in also, the ambient noise goes away and the music sound transmits quite nice. So thus far haven't tried the earbud option because the speakers give good sound. 2) Instead of the boom mic, I utilized the wired mic. Those people I have spoken with through my bluetooth linked phone say the sound is great and they had no problems hearing me, even though I was going down the highway. I'm utilizing a full face helmet and recommend this option. 3) The unit disconnects and comes off the helmet very easily so that you can charge it without having to drag the helmet around too. 4) Bluetooth linkage was quite easy for a first time user. I linked both my phone and GPS into the unit. For music, I utilized my Sony Walkman (which doesn't have bluetooth) via the wired connection and this worked nice. Another reason why the ease of disconnecting the unit from the helmet is a plus. 5) The FM radio is a plus. 6) Packaging - The quality of just the box and packaging demonstrates that you have purchased a high quality product. I can use this packaging now for a storage container and it isn't just a cardboard box, but rather a container designed for shelf storage. Things I think could improve: a) Controls are easy, but you do have to memorize some button sequences. I can perform all control functions with a glove, but it took me a while to memorize the button sequences needed say to turn on the radio. June 17, 2013
Great bang for the buck. Far far superior to past products. Sound quality from stock speakers has increased dramatically. The feature to plug in separate speakers (ear buds) is greatly appreciated. May 28, 2013

RevZilla Store asked: Why did you choose this?
Stan S: We have previously owned Cardo products and have been very satisfied with them. Apr 20, 2014
Rex R: Wanted to be able to communicate with my passenger, make calls, and listen to music. This fit the bill, got good reviews, and didnt break the bank. Revzilla made it even better by price matching a competitor. Feb 27, 2014
Ron C: decided on this for the "bang for the buck" aspect-especially the ability to plug in my ear buds if I want, and the included FM radio- my wife and I plan on trying them out on our next trip Jan 25, 2014
michael b: updated my 4 year old scala riders love them Jan 11, 2014
juliana l asked: Quick question to confirm feature: I read somewhere (in another product page) that only the Q3 is capable of music sharing between rider and passenger. Now I read in the product details of the Q1 that it is also capable of music sharing. So just to confirm, is the Q1 capable for music sharing or not?
Thanks!

Timothy E: Q1 is capable of Music Sharing. However, it is limited to only bluetooth stereo audio sources. The response won't let me link to other websites, but go to cardosystems(dot)com website (if I put the actual "dot" there, the Revzilla site doesn't allow an answer), click on Support, then highlight Manuals. At this point select "Scala Rider Family", and then find the Q1 Teamset manual. For at least the English language manual, look at Section 6.5 on Page 11. I haven't personally done much rider/passenger use for my Q1, but this feature did work for my Sony Walkman in the bluetooth mode when I checked it out. When I bought this unit, I had seriously debated the Q3, as well as the Sena Units. I ended up purchasing this unit and am thankful I did. I bought it because I could use my regular earbuds, but ended up liking the sound with the supplied speakers in the helmet and then wearing earplugs. The sounds outside the helmet are damped by the earplugs and the stereo sound comes in outstanding. So I am quite pleased with the Scala Rider and have huge recommendation of it. A great unit! But that is my preference anyway. Aug 14, 2013

David P: Juliana,
The Q1 rider set has music sharing capabilities. I've used mine while riding with my daughter. It's a nice set up. I would make sure that you sync your units on your computer and do the set up that way. It's much easier.
I hope I helped ya!

John G: Yes, although I have not tried it yet. It disables the intercom between the two, so you can have intercom (talking to each other) or share your music to the passenger, but not both at the same time. Was one of the reasons I switched to this model (love the FM as well). Aug 14, 2013

Eric E: Yes, you can share music via Bluetooth to both rider and passenger units. It is clunky switching between the music and communication. So, don't be in as hurrybto talk if uou are listening to music. Aug 14, 2013

Jonathan R: The Q1 is capable of sharing music. I just tried it for the first time earlier today, pushing music from Bluetooth connected iPhone playing on one headset to the other headset....worked great! Aug 14, 2013

Mark R: Yes, the Q3 is able to share music.

Unfortunately, the intercom function is as difficult to use/setup as the other Cardo units.

Troy H: Our Q1 Teamset shares music between us just fine. You'll have to click the intercom button again to resume talking, but it works great. Aug 14, 2013

Daniel M: It does support it. You do have to do a bit of prep, but once its setup you just hold the volume + button and it shares the bluetooth music. Very simple and sleek. Aug 14, 2013

A shopper asked: So lets say my passenger and I are sharing music via one of our phones bluetooth. If one of us talks does our voice go over the music or does it cut out the music? I guess im asking if we are listening to music is it still easy to hear communication between rider/passenger? Apr 3, 2014

Malte S: The music pauses once you start speaking. Music comes back on once the conversation is done. Works nicely. Sharing music works by sending the music from one Scala to the other - easy one button trick. Slightly annoying is that once you have finished the conversation, you need to push a button to re-share the music source. At least that is how my setup works. Apr 3, 2014

Ron C: i would say based on my understanding of the owners manual plus my experience with listening to the radio and talking that the answer is no.

The music cuts out out and unit to unit communications takes over.

There is a priority list and I forget the running order off hand, but it basically only does one thing at a time.

Robert J: These work good rider to passenger, cardo days of well work from bike to bike, But I would probably go with the other one. The q1 does work from bike to bike but only a small range. Love the radio. Dec 13, 2013
Reply to Robert Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Mark R: We use them like that, as well as on one bike together.
The range, with line of sight, is good, maybe 500 ft.
They require a learning curve that can be a little frustrating,

Adi H: Dear John
I don't know this helmet so I cant answer you about installing the Q1. However, I'm very happy with the Q1. I had Cardo Teamset which I bought 5 years ago, and this model is by far better,
You can send me a picture of your helmet (or a link to it) and I'll try to give you an answer about the installation.

Robert R: On second thought, this may not work on a half helmet because of the chorded microphone. Look for a solid boom mic. Oct 16, 2013
