Bit quiet, but there is an app for that
on 8 August 2015
I bought these for satellite navigation while on the motorcycle, so I didn't care about sound quality. When I first tested them I was very disappointed with the volume. Luckily once I got them fitted and gave them a ride out I found them to be okay. Not great, wish they were much much louder, but the combination of me only having a 125 and a full face helmet means I still hear everything I need to.
I wouldn't recommend anyone riding a bigger bike to use these for navigation, especially if you don't have a stock exhaust. You're just not gonna hear them sadly. These are only slightly louder than holding a pair of in-ear head phone close to my ears.
So they could be better, but for the money they are about what I expected. Works for quiet bikes and scoots at least.
I found an android app called Speakerboost (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=mobi.omegacentauri.SpeakerBoost&hl=en_GB) that allows you to enhance the volume a long way. In fact it can boost it so far you can destroy your speakers, so be careful. Anything over 40% is a bad idea. For my phone (Honor 4X) and these speakers, I found 20-30% to be about right. Doesn't work for all phones, but seems to for the majority.
