Easy to use, and reliable!
I bought these for my brother and I since we commute 45 minutes each way for work. We tried others and this is by far the best, easy to use, easy to pair and good sound quality.
Distance isn't the same as others we've used but easily 500 meters which is more than enough. we are usually with in a 100 or 200 meters of each other, so not so bad.
Speakers are as high quality as one could expect for thin disk style speakers. Though you can use your own headphones which is cool, though I've not done this.
The left speaker went out on my brothers headphones about 2 months after we got them and Scala sent him a new pair right away!
Overall great headsets and in my opinion completely worth the money over the trash we got before.

Work good so far.
These work pretty good. Good sound quality. I had issues at first with the settings. Kept getting wind noise from my wife's set. Had to go back into the settings to fix it. Now not as much wind noise unless there are strong cross winds.

Excellent quality product
These are very high quality items with good sound quality. Nice option to connect to two different blue tooth devices, such as cell phone and stereo. Good range between bikes for the intercom, my wife and I have never been out of communication range. I would purchase this item again and from this seller who was absolutely excellent.

Product works as advertised.
The speaker holes on my scorpion 500 needed to be enlarged to fit the speakers without binding my ears down. Also the sound quality is fine for communicating but are not very good for listening to music. I really wish for the price they would offer a better music experience.

Great audio and install and ease of use is awesome! great purchase!

Decent unit, fair warning.
I upgrade from the Q2 to the Q3 as some of the features such as the wired mic are better IMHO. I also like the ability to use my earbuds. Easy to use, same buttons as the Q2 so no learning curve. Simple to pair to other units, phone, and GPS.
My only complaint is that the speakers are very low quality. On one of the units the right speaker went out. I checked the cable & could not find any nicks or bends, so not sure where it failed. Since I bought this from an online retailer, Cardo would not offer me a replacement speaker. I had to get a replacement from the retailer.
After a few months, the right speaker has gone out again. Now I am not sure if it is me stressing the cable to the right speaker somehow, but I don't see any damage to the line on this set either.
Cardo customer service (from my experience and other reviews I have read) is not good at all. I guess this is why Sena is picking up so much traction. I will take customer service over product any day of the week.

Cardo Scala Rider Q3 Multiset Review
Good overall product. The speakers it comes with don't fit well in my Shoe 1200 helmet, it keeps rubbing my ears something fierce when I put on the helmet and take it off. I switched to my own headphones, which I like the option, but it's a bit trickey getting the helmet on and off, it takes some time to practice, but I find with my in-ear headphones, the sound is a whole lot better. It came paired with both units, so it worked fine out of the box. But when my wife and I tried to connect our phones via bluetooth, we lost connectivity to both our devices, and it took some getting to get them paired again. We basically had to start from scratch. Overall it's a good product, but for the money, I would expect a better audio sound from the included speakers. I recommend it, only because I think that most of the other products in the market are similar to setup and maintenance.
