Good all around system This is the first intercom/Bluetooth system I've used, so don't have much to compare it to. I use it to connect to both my Garmin GPS and iPhone, and it does that pretty well. Sometimes loose connection with the Garmin, but not sure if that's the Scala or Gramin fault, or just the nature of Bluetooth. If I turn the Scala off and then back on, it will reconnect. I stream music from my iPhone often, and it does that well, but sound quality is just OK and I wish the speakers were a bit louder. I wear NoNoise ear plugs when I ride, so need to play music full volume to hear it on the highway. There is a bit of distortion at this volume level. Some third party speakers might do better. One feature I do like is that I can use my Sure earbuds with this system and get much better sound quality, since I can simply unplug the speakers and plug in the buds. But, then I have the inconvenience of having to remove or unplug earbuds whenever I remove my helmet. Like most things, there's always a tradeoff. All around, though, I'm happy with the Scala.

Glad I bought it. Does everything I bought it for. The installation was a little harder than I thought it might be, just from the cheekpads not wanting to play nice, but anyways.... Volume is no issue with the stick on speakers, and apparently they work better when wearing ear plugs while using the unit. Calls from my phone are clear enough and I have had no issue with them hearing me on the other end. By far my favorite feature is the auto volume control when stopping and starting in traffic, works like a dream. Do yourself a favor and buy thins thing. May 25, 2015
Just like Anthony said it would be. A solid performer. Paired easily with my buddies Schuberth C3 & my iPhone 5s. Push 2 buttons at the same time(not too hard with gloves on after you practice) and Siri dials whomever I want from my contacts. April 21, 2015
Should have bought one sooner I went back and forth about picking one of theses up for over a year... I wish I had pulled the trigger sooner. I have it connected to my iPhone 6 and makes clear phone calls without an issue. I use good custom molded ear buds so volume is no issue at all. I use a scorpion exo 1000 and have small wind screen on my speed triple. If you're thinking about buying one because you have the unfortunate luck to have to take phone calls while riding GET THIS ASAP. April 14, 2015
Controls not optimum. Winter gloves make it difficult for me to accurately select the correct button push and sequence of pushes to choose a function. Once selected, the functions are great and happy with the product. My only suggestion is to make the controls "more obvious" even if interfere with sleek looks. Jim March 30, 2015
Best blue tooth brand I upgraded from scala rider Q to the Q3 both items are great. I love the features. From FM radio to com to com rider. Very cool upgrade and perfect for people that are just starting:). March 15, 2015
Works great with tomtom GPS and iphone Generally great product. You get very good quality for the price you pay for. Control buttons tend to be a bit small if you wanted to use the built in radio. I got exactly what I needed. At Revzilla i also got the perfect service and advice. February 21, 2015
Great Product I purchased this item at a local retail store (The only gear I've purchased outside of Revzilla) I have owned for about 1 year and I still love it. I currently use it with the Shark Evoline 3 ST Moovit Lumi Helmet. I mostly use this for Music only which is a good think because its difficult to hear voices over 40mph as the volume is not as loud as when playing music. Durabiliy: It appears like a solid build device Ive road in rain with no problem Battery: After a year of use I get about 4 hours of music. December 13, 2014
