I should have listened to the other reviews I bought this product with mixed feelings to begin with and I should have listened to my gut. While the thought behind this product is awesome, the sound quality is so terrible as to make it nearly useless. I am so disappointed I spent my hard earned money on this and the only thing I know to do is to try to figure out how to replace the horrid speakers. :( June 29, 2015
nice gadget work great and easy to use mic's the only thing I wish could be plugged in like the speakers , that's the only thing that looks like could get damaged easily, then you could replace mic if needed. March 2, 2015
Good for music and phone calls Like I stated in the title, overall this unit is good for playing music via bluetooth as well as taking phone calls. The speakers are decent but not the best. Most people I talked to on the phone said they couldn't tell I was on my motorcycle when talking to them via this device. The buttons are a little difficult to use with a gloved hand. For the price it is a good buy. Unless you are looking for intercom, then you will want to look for another unit. January 19, 2015
Expected more Easy install, easy synch, boom mic doesn't work. Sound is good at low speeds, not so much at highway speeds. Cardo helpline is non-existent. I would not buy this system again. November 24, 2014
Great beginner set Love the ease of use of product. Even at high speeds i can still hear my music and hear conversations on the phone. I just wish i could program more than one phone number into the system. October 20, 2014
I have had problems from day one Sound is tinny. Does not always turn. Microphone does not pick up your voice very well when talking on your phone. People have a hard time hear you. My previous system was cheaper and work better. Went to this one to get the stereo head phones to listen the music from my phone. Which it does not work very well but it could be my android phone. I would not by this produce again. September 8, 2014
This is exactly what i have wanted. Always like dat the Schuberth helmets for this great feature. Was so excited to find out that Cardo makes the bluetooth feature for Schuberth and added to my Shoei helmet, works great September 1, 2014
Use of my ear buds, BEST OPTION EVER This is the first system I have installed in a helmet so it took me a bit to install as I wanted to make sure the velcro had the right placement in case I needed to adjust the speakers later. Which I did to aim them more directly to my ear. But the best option is that I can use my own ear buds without buying an additional accessory. No matter how good any speakers are, and these are good for as small as they are, or how good your helmet is, the wind is just too loud to hear well without adding more stress on those tender eardrums even with ear plugs. The ear buds were my best option. I can keep the volume at a medium level and still hear it all without blasting to over come the wind noise. The second feature that pleases me to no end is the intelligent automatic volume adjustment so I don't blast out my ears when I slow down at a stop light or as I exit the freeway. Very happy with this product! June 30, 2014

A shopper asked: Can this be used on a half helmet? Aug 1, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Rory V: I don't see how it could be used with a half helmet unless there is an adapter for the headphones. The earphones have to be placed over your ears. I have seen headphone pockets available. Not sure how good they would work due to wind noise. I have a 3/4 helmet which isolates the wind noise. This unit works well with my helmet. Aug 2, 2014
Reply to Rory Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Hector P: I use it on a Shoei Hornet DS, and did not try on a half helmet, but I hardly believe you will be able to use it with the provided headphones and the mic, designed to be incorporated to the inside of full helmets Aug 1, 2014

Ed H: Yes no problem. Btw, get the larger speakers. Good system Aug 1, 2014

A shopper asked: I saw the question on half helmet mount. I have ear pockets on my half which work fine. Question is how does that mic mount? I see a square thingy. Is it adhesive to stick to side of helmet? My previous Scala had boom mic attached rigid to the mount. Nov 16, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Troy B: Yes, the mic has a sticky mount to the helmet. Not sure it would work for a half-helmet. Would probably be fine in a 3/4 helmet, though. Mine is installed in a full-face HJC and works great. Nov 16, 2014
Reply to Troy Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Ed H: The mic boom mounts to the main unit which clamps to the helmet. Simple installation. Nov 16, 2014

A shopper asked: Can the microphone be removed? I just want to listen to my tunes. I have yanked on it pretty good, and it is not budging. Dec 20, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Ed H: Yes, it can be removed. I seem to remember you need to open up the unit to do so, and you MUST seal the opening left ( I used silicone) to keep dirt out of the unit Dec 20, 2014
Reply to Ed Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
A shopper asked: I currently have this attached to my modular helmet and I'm having issues with the boom mic getting in the way when I open & close my helmet. Does this come with a different wired mic? I saw other units have the option to attach the wired mic directly to the inside of the helmet, does this unit have that option? Feb 16, 2014

Brian C: The Qz only ships with the Boom microphone.

The Qz is compatible with parts for the Q1/Q3 line (but not with any of the parts for the Q2).

Scala sells a specific microphone only kit on their site that will work for you. (Revzilla doesn't appear to carry the Q microphone only set.)
