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).

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.

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.

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.

Have a functionality, fit, or otherwise product-specific question about the Cardo Scala Rider Q1 Teamset? Ask it here!
If you have a customer service or shipping question, please direct it to our Customer Service department.
T I: 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.Jul 12, 2014
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 tripJan 25, 2014
michael b: updated my 4 year old scala riders love themJan 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!Aug 13, 2013
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
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
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
A shopper asked: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?Aug 11, 2014
Ron C: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 chatte
we have over 5000 miles on our sets and they work great! I highly reccomend getting theseAug 11, 2014
MICHAEL L:I bought this system last year not expecting what to get and this unit blew my mind. Best $$ spent for my bike. Everything you are describing this unit does. When riding you can talk and have the gas go at the same time along with music if desired. I have made calls on it and works slick with summer gloves when it gets cold its tricky but do able. Very simple. My girlfriend rides with me and we have 2 closed helmets just make sure to get a good pair of headphones, I use Bose and seems to work perfectly. The speakers don't work only down fall. It does have a built in radio too for most ft channel's. I would buy this unit over and over again and again. So 2 mics 2 head sets 2 chargers 2 clamps.Aug 11, 2014
Adi H:Yes, it does it all and more- you can hear music from your smart phone or from the built-in radio and share it with the rider, it automatically switch to intercom when you start talking, it also switch to phone when you have a call.Aug 11, 2014
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
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.
