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.

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.

Easy to use for the most part; excellent sound
Just tried these out for a 1800 miles trip with the mrs. First use of a communicator system.

I can't give a complete review, for we didn't do the recommended update/website sync that's required. Apparently this is mandatory, for the stock settings on one unit was way too low (or VOX sensitive). Thought we could do this on a public computer, but it requires a download which no one allows :-(

I wonder if some of the negative reviews were from users who tried this system right out of the box. We actually ran into the West cost Scala rep for Tucker Rocky, and he insisted that the units need to be registered to properly work.

But when the units synced, the sound was very good. iPhone music/sound was instant, and very good. The initial pairing on the units can sometimes take up to 30 seconds, don't know why. We also picked up some beeping, guessing it was trying to connect with other bluetooth devices in the area. Didn't impeded on conversation, just a bit odd.

Hopefully we can do a better review on our next trip, once the devices are updated and properly set up.

Great product, the test of time will tell.
Received product less than one month ago, but have already used pretty extensively. Use is relatively easy once you learn the commands. Time will tell the ultimate quality.

Much improved from earlier models
Very much improved over earlier models. The speaker quality is excellent as is the clarity of the communication between parties. Installation was a snap on my girlfriends Scorpian, but a a bit of a pain on my Shoei. But all in all ... a great product. O another note.... When will the come up with wireless speaker system, therefore eliminating the pain if installation... just saying

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).

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.

Needed com set to talk to wife. More economic way than having m/c wired.
Aaron D on Sep 14, 2016
I need a communication system to chat with my wife while riding together, and I heard a lot about cardo... Until now I'm using sena bluetooth communication system but I'm not proud of it... I will try cardo and I hope it behaves better than sena

Leonard B on Mar 28, 2015
I wanted to have a "com set" that would allow me to talk to and listen to music with my wife. What I didn't want was to spend a ton of money. The products I have purchased from RevZilla have preformed as advertised. I expect the Cardo Scala Rider Q1 Teamset to do the same. I'll let you know!
steve l on Feb 12, 2015
I had an old Cardo team set and was always happy with it. Considered the Sena, but this seems more compact and I'm old fashioned and like to stick with something I know a little about.
T I on Jul 12, 2014
We have previously owned Cardo products and have been very satisfied with them.
Stan S on Apr 20, 2014
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.

Dennis C on Jan 13, 2016
We will be moving to the Pacific northwest where I will be able to ride nearly all year. But, as you know, the biggest problem will be the rain in the area. The description says that this device is waterproof, but have anyone used these in inclement weather who can talk as to the validity of that claim?
A C on Jan 23, 2016
BEST ANSWER: We are on the East Coast and have ridden through some showers while using the units with no problems. The one caution is to be sure the covers for the USB ports are secure. This is a little more difficult than it should be.
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!
juliana l on Aug 13, 2013
BEST ANSWER: 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.
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?
A shopper on Apr 3, 2014
BEST ANSWER: 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.
Hi. Just to make sure. The unit comes with two mics? All I want it GPS, Receive calls on my smart phone, Being able to talk to rider and the rider (wife) being able to talk to me. Am I looking at the correct device?
A shopper on Aug 11, 2014
BEST ANSWER: yes, box contains 2 Pre paired units with included mics and speakers.
I mounted one unit on my wife's helmet and the other unit on my helmet.

You can blutooth connect a smartfone to receive calls and GPS info and you can listen to music from fone or included fm radio built into unit and talk back and forth between rider and passenger.....BUT, you can only do one at a time.

ie, talk with passenger, call comes in it interrupts your conversation with passenger, call ends and you go back to yackin' it up with your passenger who is starting to annoy you so you turn on the tunes thereby cutting off the chatter

we have over 5000 miles on our sets and they work great!
I highly reccomend getting these
Is this set any good for driver to driver? Ie to use between my hubby and I on two different bikes?
A shopper on Dec 13, 2013
BEST ANSWER: 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.
Hello, with this set, are me and my passenger able to pair each device with different smartphones ? I mean, can i pair mine with my phone and her with her phone so each one can listen to their own music ? Also, if i have it paired with my phone and receive a call, will it be shared with my passenger ?
Diego S on Oct 28, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Yes pair with separate phones and listen to own music, and calls are not shared
So does it do intercom? And if it does how many can it intercom with?
A shopper on Sep 29, 2014
BEST ANSWER: yes , matched sets instantly pair up every time you power up and if necessary you simply pair off and wait 30 seconds then they re-set and pair up again .
Yes they can pair up to 8 riders within distance of each other about 200 yards clearly .

suggest you watch Anthony on revzilla demo videos on revzilla site as well
Hi, I am looking at the Cardo Q1 Teamset but wanted to know if you think I can mount the unit to the Harley-Davidson Drive 1/2 helmet with Visor?

Thanks
John Keast
A shopper on Oct 16, 2013
BEST ANSWER: 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.

Will this work with open face helment? I wear a Bell Rouge and my wife wears a S/S 350
A S on Jul 6, 2015
BEST ANSWER: My wife wears a 3/4 helmet in the summer. It works well except for occasional bursts of wind noise, particularly in cross winds. Using the large foam ball may fix it, but we have not tried yet.
I'm trying to use the voice commands (Vox) to control my Android smartphone, but with no luck. I follow the steps in the manual but it doesn't seem to be working. Can I get some advice from you? I don't know if this only works with iPhone or Android is also supported.

I guess this should be more clearly stated both in the manual and the reviews in this Web.

Thanks!
A shopper on Dec 28, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I don't use the voice commands but I know it works with my Note because when I cough that triggers one of the voice commands. I ended up disabling it. Sorry I can't help further
