Schuberth C3 Pro SRC System
Everything was great, the product arrived well packed and very fast !!! I recommend this seller !!!
The only thing is that if I had bought the SRC System now I buy with 25% off, otherwise everything was great. The SRC System works very well, the new antenna system has greatly improved radio reception, the microphone is a little smaller than the previous model, I liked it.

Best sound but questionable quality
My wife and I have had a pair of these for over a year now. Her's failed (no sound in one ear) and was promptly repaired by Schuberth. Unfortunately that repair lasted all of 4 hours before failing again, and ultimately replaced with a second headset. While we have had no problems since, we have only rode another 20 or so hours, so it is early to tell, and we are worried to take these on long trips without spares, which is ludicrous for the price!
It is a shame, because the sound quality is the best we have heard (tho more bass would be nice), tho I'm sure that is partly due to the low noise of the C3 Pro helmets.
The bike-to-bike has worked better for us than other reviewers, tho riding with my wife we are never far from each other and always line of sight. We did disable the VOX feature however, as we found it sometimes does not wish to disconnect, and even rarer, would activate unwanted.
Other than quality/longevity concerns, my only serious complaint is the interface. With the buttons mounted to a soft surface on the underside of the helmet, they are very difficult to use, near impossible wearing thick winter gloves. I much preferred the hard buttons on the side of my Nolan N-Com system and really wish Schuberth would sell a handlebar control as on upgrade, which would be better/safer than any helmet buttons

A bit of a pain to install but once in place it fit perfectly. The buttons are next to impossible to use with winter gloves so be sure to activate before you're buttoned up.

functions very well. good sound quality.
Changing out the collar on the C3 helmet was fairly easy and straight forward. However, because of the design and battery/control button placement, it does limit turning of the head to the left or right.

Expensive and directions need more detail but great product
Rather than re-hash any earlier reviews, I'll discuss the issues/highlights from my experiences only.
First, the instructions, especially the video, does not adequately identify that there is a connection to be made of the internal helmet antenna and the blue tooth device antenna, or if there is, it was not very noticeable. The first week or two I could not get any reception in the helmet until I placed a call to RevZilla, and from them to Schuberth. I eventually learned that I didn't hook up the two antenna connections and it immediately fixed the issue.
Also, in snapping in the collar, care must be taken not to damage the helmet or device. It's not delicate, it's just not unbreakable. Once in, the fitment is very good, but perhaps could be better or a little easier. They almost have it right, but not quite. Make sure to order the right collar size for your helmet (there are two and they aren't interchangeable).
Using the device is easy, though the controls with gloves can be difficult and/or distracting while riding. I just set my blue tooth for use with iPhone/iTunes, set volume and ride. I would not at this point feel comfortable accepting a telephone call while riding, despite owning Cardo Scala for several years on a different helmet and using all functions without incident. I think the controls are the reason and wish they were more seamless.
The BT range has not been tested as I have not connected to other intercoms as of yet.
The blue tooth collar device is as expensive as many entire "premium" helmets, a cost that is in addition to the $800 plus price for the Schuberth helmet itself. They should have a built in option and reduce the price to a fair number, especially considering the cost of the helmet. if you want this device, you'll pay dearly for the privilege. To me it is worth it, and as I get more accustomed to its operation, I am sure all functionality will be used .
Sound: Excellent. It's the best I've heard yet. No BT I've ever used sounds better. If you are expecting heavy bass, you'll be disappointed. It's clear but not bassy at all and at any rate, it's not a noise-reduction concert headset and was never intended to be. Still, the sound is pretty accurate and enjoyable to listen to. No static and no skipping that can happen with other devices.
Battery life: good but not great. I think the regular Scala has longer life but is much more clunky to have on the helmet. It's a trade off.
The collar makes it a little more difficult to put on and take off the helmet itself, but on the plus side, the entire unit is more snug and quiet than without it, so that's a plus.
The takeaway from my review is that the device is built for the helmet and fits very well, the controls/programming might still need to be tweaked to make it easier and I'd like to see either a price drop or development of a helmet/BT combo that comes in at less than $1,000 total. As it stands, I spent $860 for the helmet plus $429 for the BT, a big chunk of change.

Excellent addition to the C3 Pro
The Schuberth SRC system for the C3 Pro is a great addition to an excellent helmet. The acoustics are very good, and the automatic volume adjustment is a useful feature that keeps your hands on the handlebars. The voice answering feature worked flawlessly. Setting up the Bluetooth connection with my iPhone was simple, and allows music, GPS instructions, and cell usage. The system fits nicely into the helmet and is unobtrusive in use. The buttons are a little hard to discern with gloves on however. Overall highly recommend.

Good pruduct - averae confort
The product is excellent and has a very good features. Regarding the comfort, i think that there is a room for improvements. Once the connectors are located in the pockets designed for that, you can feel the connectors in your head-neck. Possible solutions: use smaller connectors or include a "block-out" in the interior foam of the helmet.
