1.0 out of 5 stars If you want more than an intercomm don't buy it 1 July 2008
Works well as an intercom. I had no problem with wind or road noise or clarity after a little adjusting of the microphone positons. Using the intercomm and a GPS (Tom Tom Rider V2) has so far been impossible. Yes I know it prioritses but the passenger headset drops off line.The Scala Q2 master logs on to the GPS but then drops the passengers headset connection. The system certainly does not cope with 4 separate blue tooth devices as quoted. Help line is a tedious online process. If you want more than an intercomm, don't buy it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good but not perfect 23 Dec. 2008
By Andy Clift TOP 500 REVIEWER
My wife got a Cardo Rider headset with her Tomtom Rider satnav and it seemed a good idea so I got one as well. I should have waited a while for her experience.

It's not a bad product and I am sure that the majority of buyers will be very happy with it. The audio quality is good and it is quite possible to have clear telephone conversations at highly illegal speeds but it is not perfect.

To start with, Cardo claim that it can easily be fitted to and removed from most helmets. Yes but not most BMW and Schuberth. As these helmets have flexible skirts around the bottom edge the clamp cannot be used unless a slot is cut in the material. Once Cardo realised this they supplied the bracket with an adhesive pad so it can be stuck to the helmet. The two snags here are (1) I don't want to glue things to the side of a £450 helmet and (2) it may make it easy to fit - but not remove.

Another problem, if a flip front helmet is used, is that every time the helmet is flipped open and closed gloves have to be removed in order to fiddle the microphone back under the bottom edge. I managed to break the first mic very quickly by getting it jammed in the flip - as, of course, it's hard to see where it is when the helmet is on. The standard mic boom is also too short for flip helmets.

I bought a new bracket and boom for mine and now use it on a spare helmet and it works OK but I still have the problem of forgetting to recharge the dongle. My other helmet has an Autocom headset which is hard wired to the bike. For me its a much better solution.

4.0 out of 5 stars Scala Q2 Headset - I like it! 30 July 2008
Verified Purchase
I have seen the other 2 reviews and I have to say I like the Q2 headset - it works well with the Tom Tom Rider V2 and I can hear the voice commands well at well over motorway speeds in my Shoei lid (but not so well in my Caberg)and to have my Ipod on a radio transmitter playing a bit of Chilli Peppers or whatever on a long motorway trip is a bonus. I ride a 1200 GS without earplugs and I do not use the intercom facility. Tom Tom Rider v2 is useful but it creates havoc with just about any phone I have used but who wants to take calls on a bike? Not me! Just clear sat nav instructions, speed camera warnings and some music to while away motorway tedium. If you have sat nav and like music when you are riding buy one. If you don't then why are you reading this?

I bought this Q2 Scala Rider to Rider Intercom with FM Radio for my wife and I. My wife is a learner because we decided it would be cheaper for her to take a CBT every 2 years for her Vespa ET4 125. The rest of her tuition comes from me on my GSXR1100K via the Scala. My profession is a Despatch Rider/Motorcycle Engineer with over 15 years experience. I teach rider training in my spare time as well as designing other electronic and manufactured equipment for use on two wheels.
We are mature riders in our 40's who believe that what is written in the motorcycle press is just to promote products that fit on two wheelers whether they are good or not. Cut away all the expenditure for branded items and you are left with the basic solution for the problem being solved.
In other words, you are paying for the name rather than quality.
Why for all the aforesaid explanation? Well, this is where the Scala comes into the foray of Bluetooth Intercoms. It is a basic product that does what the instructions tell you. The Scala is not on the tip of the general two-wheeler brigade because they like to pay for branded tat.
I have assessed all the Sat Nav's, GPS, Bluetooth, and other tech stuff designed for all weathers.
We can tell you from evaluating the rest that the Scala is the best item for Bluetooth communication. It works exceptionally well without fault on our full face helmets with our mobile phones, Sat Nav and will link easily to use as an intercom system. We have measured the range and it exceeds the 100 metres as stated. Can be heard with us talking at motorway speeds inside our Nitro and Shark helmets. Fitting instructions are good but a knowledge of how your helmet has been designed will improve the quality of the fitting.

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't Waste Your Money... 19 Jun. 2008
Verified Purchase
No problems whatsoever hooking up my Q2 to the GPS and to the pillion Q2 unit however it was all pointless... The sound quality is poor to the extent you cannot hear anything when you are doing speeds in excess of 30mph, and that's without earplugs. With earplugs, I found you have to be stationary and still struggle to hear the other person whether it is from the other Q2 or telephone call.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointment 30 Aug. 2008
By AceH
Verified Purchase
On the surface this is an improvement over the previous version[s], one noticeable difference is the length of the microphone attachment, making it easy to fit to a flip-faced helmet, where the mounting needs to be a little bit further back, so that the lid can be closed without obstruction.
Attempting to connect various devices is where the major disappointments are. I could connect TomTom Rider V2 OR my iPhone 3G, one of them at a time only, and had to reset to factory settings the TomTom a few times in the process - otherwise I kept getting a message that the headset was not connected. When the iPhone was "successfully" connected, the microphone was next to useless - the other side couldn't hear me at all, while I could hear them loud and clear.
Tuning the radio to the desired stations is no easy task either, which left me wondering - how difficult could it have been to provide a USB connection and web interface of some sort, that would have made all this so much easier.
One other thing - the right hand side earpiece seems to be noticeably quieter, but that may be on purpose.
I haven't attempted connecting to any other Q2 devices, but I'd loathe to have to reset my TomTom yet again, given the fact that SatNav was the main reason (radio - secondary) I got the device in the first place :-(
All-in-all, if you must get a Scala Rider with a radio, get the previous version - it's £30 cheaper!
