Good for music, the rest is dodgy
I ride solo mostly (commuter) but occasionally have a passenger. Bought one of these as a better solution to earbuds and also to allow for calls while riding. I went with the Freecom 2 for the option of adding a passenger unit at a later date.

So far I've had mixed success with it. In the primary role of music listening, it works very well. The auto gain adjust works flawlessly and the speakers, though not amazing, are perfectly usable. The kit also included plenty of mounting hardware, so no issues there. I attached the unit to a medium sized Shoei Neotec, fits just fine with all cables neatly tucked under the liner and cheek pads.

Now for the problems of which there are 2. The biggest is that I can't get my phone to recognize the mic on it. That may just be a problem with my $30 smart phone (Huawei Union) but the mic on my bluetooth earbuds work ok (just not while riding). Connected to my laptop, the mic works but is barely audible even with the inputs turned to max. Not sure what the deal there is.

This brings up the second issue, and that's updating it. I figured a simple update to the software might solve the problems with the mic and the app kept telling me to do it too. So I tried and the update crashes every time during the verifying files part (very end I think). It does this when connected to two completely different Windows 10 PC's. I don't think the problem is me. I build PC's and am a software developer, so I'm pretty sure I know how to run an auto update! So yeah, the cardo updater is junk. But at least it didn't brick the unit, so it's still usable as an over priced music player.

Not sure I can recommend this unit due to the above problems. I'll see if I can get it connected to a different phone and give Cardo a chance to update software, but right now it isn't looking good as a communication device.

Greater but not so great
I purchased this head set last week. Linked rite up to my phone. Easy to use. Had a couple phone calls on it and everyone told me they could hear me well and I could hear them well. Unfortunately the sound quality is terrible. All I get is scratching, popping and distortion behind my music. Sometimes it's so bad I don't even know what song is playing. Mid and base are almost non existing. The treble hurts my ear. Yes I have an equalizer on my phone that I messed with for an hourly. It helped but not much. I'm returning the product, I'd rather ride in silence.

Do you guys have any plans for a review of this guys (Freecom series) or at least a comparison to the Scala Rider Q series? Seems that it only works with Android Apps at the moment, could you explain if this is true?
