Cardo Scala Rider Q3 Multiset
This product has great features. Works very well.
Only issue with installation was the glue used to fasten the boom mike to Velcro patch. It was gooey and wants to come off the Velcro. luckily my cheek guard in my helmet holds it in place. will have to repair this. I had a feeling this was going to be an issue. Otherwise product works great. all the features work as expected.

Amazing instal and quality product
I went through 3 Sena SMH10's this summer and I was excited to try this Q3 from Cardo. This unit is made extremely well, the wiring and quality of the build is amazing. I've installed this on my C3pro and it was a piece of cake to get going. No more worrying about bent pins or water damage like with the SMH10. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a stable system with great features and solid manufacturing.

Bought these because my wife wanted to talk to me while on long rides. I keep it simple, listening to the on board radio. My passengers link up their phones, and listen to their playlist. Took me a bit of practice to get the buttons memorized. Install in helmets pretty easy.

Great set. Me and my buddy split it to save some money. Biggest cons are music distorts some at highest volume and you have to continually refer to the manual to figure out how to do certain actions. There are only 4 buttons, so there is a lot of long press actions and multipress actions. Sound quality is amazing for talking on both ends. When making phone calls the other person doesn't even know I'm on a motorcycle. I have a HJC RPHA Max helmet that it fit on fairly well.

I tried most of these Bluetooth units, IMHO this is the best
I own a Scalarider G9, Interphone F5 and have used the chatterbox Slim. This unit while not having quite the range of the G9 is easier to use as the buttons are better laid out and bigger. The speakers seem louder (especially with the iPhone) and I love having the option to go to earbuds by just disconnecting the speakers for the main jack on the unit, very slick. It has dual bluetooth channels so you can if you want pair 2 full on bluetooth phones or a smartphone and a GPS. Their was a quirk pairing with the BMW version of the Gamin Zumo 660 but the was a workaround provided by Scalarider until a software update can be done. All in all a great unit.

Difficult to pair
We just returned from a week long trip. There were 3 of us all using the Q3's. We were able to pair unit one to unit two and unit two to unit three,but we were unable to pair unit 2 to unit 3. We tried a number of times and a number of different ways, but we couldn't get them all to work. Switching between unit 2 and unit 3 was easy for me and they worked very well. I called cardo and was told to keep trying to pair again. Never did get them to work.

Marginal ease of switching input modes, mediocre battery life
Switching between BlueTooth audio, phone calls and full duplex pairing with another rider is not as easy as I had hoped. Also, the mic stays open with wind noise only which might be contributing to short battery life.
