Shark Sharktooth Bluetooth Kit
OEM for the only modular helmet that's DOT rated open face and full face.
The sharktooth paired easily with my android, though having some issues with my NAVI 590LM, don't think it's a Shark issue. It's small, disappears inside the helmet and sounds clear enough on both ends for legible conversation. It's the best solution for Shark Evoline modular helmets.

I was skeptical about buying this piece for my helmet, but the installation is pretty easy (10-15min setup), sound quality is great while riding, when speaking on the phone with someone the sound quality for both sides is excellent. I totally recommend this product to everyone who doesn't want a silent ride.
Only downside to this item is when I want to skip a song on my playlist I need to do it through my phone rather than press a small button to skip.

Stuck in The Past
I bought this thinking that this intercom would be the only one in the market compatible with a Shark Helmet. The boom mic situates between the cheek pads and the battery has a nice slot to slide in on the helmet. I realize now that you can use the Sena and it'll work just perfectly.
Although light, the design of the headset can be improved. After a few months of regular use the right earpiece stopped producing audio levels that matched the left earpiece. After submitting it for warranty repair, Shark didn't see there was a problem and sent it back. There is no option to purchase a replacement earpiece. I currently can only listen to audio via the left earpiece clearly.
I own now the Sena SMH10 so I have something to compare to. The audio level on the sharktooth has a maximum level that is loud, but not loud enough if I have a defective right earpiece.
The biggest drawback about the sharktooth is that it cannot be updated like the Sena. The sharktooth is forever stuck at bluetooth 2.0 so it isn't as robust as the newer units. You can only intercom with another sharktooth (unlike Sena which allows you to connect to non-sena intercoms) and you can only connect to three devices (phone, gps, and intercom). You cannot connect to an ipod and an iphone at the same time (unlike Sena which can do it).
It is only available as a permanent mount via 3M adhesive. Sena allows the option for a bracket and adhesive.
For the current price of the sharktooth, I do not recommend buying this. Spend your money on the Sena 20s which is cheaper and the newest bluetooth intercom out there.

fits great in my new evo helmet
The fit and Finnish in my new evoline3 helmet is great. The in stall was easy. I could see it working for any helmet with a little mod for the tiny power pack. My only issue with the shark tooth was the sound. Given this is my first in helmet bluetooth and the cost. I think shark could have done better. Sound is tinny. I'm thinking of swapping the speakers from a set of good head phone I don't use.

the new EVO helmet has all the great features updated
the Sharktooth works great, is easy to pair, and was relatively easy to install, although the instructions could be better.
I haven't tried it on long tours yet, but it works great with my Android LG phone.

Light & Slim
This product is light, very slim compared to all the other bulky bluetooth headset, user friendly, easy to install, easy to use, excellent microphone and speakers are fairly good.
BUT!! if you have a really loud rumbling exhaust note then it's quite useless.

Great bluetooth device
Great bluetooth device, interacts perfectly with the iPhone including "Siri". People listen to me clearly during the calls.

Impeccable Design, Subpar Sound Quality
Install: Easy. Don't listen to other posters, if you have a brain, good lighting, patience, and tiny pieces of ducktape to secure the cords it goes smoothly and easily. Note: should be installed on left side of helmet-- this is so you can keep hand on the throttle.
Design: Sexy sexy sexy.
Sound: Loud enough-- and yes position is everything, but that should be obvious. Music sounds the best. Podcast are OK. Phone calls are almost unbearable poor sounding -- voices sound crackly.
Sync: Sync on call, instantly, no problems. It does work with Siri, which I read one reviewer say it didn't, either they are just plain wrong or apple updated bluetooth capability with Siri since then.
Use: Installed in Race R Pro for commuting, mouth does not touch mic as I though it might. There is plenty of room.
Note: Full user manual has to be downloaded from sharks site-- does not come with product. Also, neck pad is very difficult to put back in-- advice: start at the back and as you push between the eps and shell keep pulling it toward the back of the helmet, only way to get it in-- push in then pull back.
Main appeal: design is flawless and don't have to wear earbuds.
