Schuberth C3 Pro SRC System
Love it so far!!!
The only reason I didn't rate it top in all categories is becasue I haven't owned it long enough. But, so far, it's exceeded my expectations- I really love being able to listen to music and have access to the phone. I have used the phone at highway speed and everyone says that it sounds great. It takes a little while to get used to the button positions, and putting in in the helmet was a PITA- but I guess that's good so it's very snug. It's relatively comfortable, but still a bit tight, I assume that will get better over time- the helmet is also new, so they both have to wear in. Price was good too- a little cheaper than the local dealer.

Great features and great design
I really recommend this product, and wish to have the same kind of product available to other helmet brands

Great add-on, just a tad tight
When you remove the stock neck roll and install this communications system you will definitely feel that it's a little tighter to put on.
I wish (for the radio) that we could choose which stations it receives, but when you initialize the radio, it just saves the six strongest stations. I don't use the radio.
The microphone is kinda of a pain to fit into the helmet when you are flipping the front part down. Esp with gloves on.
The buttons are tough to find when you have gloves on. I spent a good week fumbling around pressing the wrong buttons. Beware, if you accidentally press the phone button it will auto dial your last dialed number.
Also, fair warning, it is a PITA to install.
On the bright side, it is extremely well made. My Android phone connected the first time easily by following the paring instructions and always connects as soon as I turn it on.
Sound quality is perfect, the helmet is very quiet and even doing 80 people don't know I'm on the bike talking on the phone.
Once you get used to this setup you will be glad you got it.

Just what I was looking for.
Easy to install, I read instructions carefully and took my time, half hour to 45 minutes. I mostly use it for my GPS to give me voice commands, so i'm not always looking down at screen. Only negative is you can't feel control buttons with gloves on. I also wish the microphone boom was removable as I don't see myself ever using it.

Fits my Schuberth C3 Pro Flawlessly!
I recently bought my Schuberth C3 pro and I also took advantage of its radio booster capabilities by pairing it with this SRC, and I am glad I did! It fits perfectly and can not tell it is there. Most SRC are an eye sore as it hangs outside the helmet, but Schuberth keeps it clean by integrating it into the acoustic collar and the helmet itself! You literally can not tell I have a SRC in my helmet and at the same time does not sacrifice the comfort level, as well as the acoustic deadening that the C3 Pro is known for.

Yes. An upgrade from the original.
Of course this has only changed a bit since the unit for the C3. The built-in antenna is a big leap forward. The original version only pulled-in the best of signals. My friends tell me the sound from my phone (via bluetooth) is much improved though the first version was not bad. On YouTube you can find a video to modify/replace the speakers with garden variety speakers form Koss headphones. Anyone wiht a bit of experience and a soldering iron can do this. That move provided a HUGE upgrade in sound. (voids warranty) This new version should have come with a upgrade in this area right out of the box. Schuberth says the new speakers are better but you'd be hard pressed to hear the difference on casual listen. This unit is a struggle to get in the C3-Pro but it should be....for mega tight fit.

Pricey, but functions very well.
On price/features this SRC Pro unit stretches what you could call a reasonable value. Compared to other bluetooth units, which have nearly identical functionality, it is a downright bad value.
However it sets itself apart from the other options completely , and makes itself a good purchase, in how well it integrates into the helmet. It replaces, and is only slightly bulkier than, the original Schuberth C3 Pro neckroll. Because there is nothing sticking out on the sides of the helmet its quiet nature and good aero qualities are well preserved. Audio quality is good and people who have called me report acceptable clarity even at high highway speed. When paired with my iPhone pressing the call button will activate Siri which has been surprisingly accurate and useful in voice-dialing, reading texts, dictating texts, getting directions, etc at speed.
Installing this unit will require you remove the Velcro chin curtain to make room for the microphone when you close the chin bar, this will increase wind noise a bit over the standard configuration. The extra bulk of the SRC unit will also make turning your neck slightly more restricted (but far from difficult) and closing the chin bar will require a little more force for a good secure latch.
Overall I've been nothing but satisfied.
