When I got the helmet I was excited until I tried it on and the speakers where mounted into the chin strap and dug into my ear lobes after a few minutes of looking at it I took the speakers out and placed them between the padding and plastic (there was a hole cut out. I ended up loosing a little bit of the volume by doing this but the comfort is so much better now, I just wish they would have mounted the speakers instead of placing them in a not so cushioned strap. Bluetooth works well no problems yet, have had for almost a week now and can hear music still at 85-90, calls however are only fairly clear up to 70-75 but I wasnt expecting any more than that. Speakers are starting to crackle I will probably replace them with something of a little better quality. I love this helmet now that I have worked out the few kinks I found. Great buy. I am adding two pics of where the speakers where and where I placed them.

I admit, I was skeptical. At $269.00 it seemed too good to be true but the helmet arrived today and it's great. Quality construction, solid feel and the bluetooth speakers and mic work really well, so much better than I expected. The sound quality is very good and more than loud enough for any sensible riding speed. Buy it, you won't be disappointed.
I have to say, for the price and with everything this helmet gives you, it haas to be one of the best helmets out there. The styling is amazing! The Bluetooth works great! Near everything is perfect! I do have to say though, the visor selection for this perticular helmet stinks. I have all three that they offer and they all aren't what I was hoping. They need to make a fog resistant, and DARK smoke tinted one. Possibly reflective. Also, I’m not sure if its because I have glasses, but upon long rides the place of the earpiece causes myself some ear pain. But I’m looking into contacts, so I’m pretty sure that’ll fix that problem. Other than that? Remarkable helmet. Couldn’t of got a better one for the price.
i recently purchased this helmet and i like the looks and the fit... however... i also have an icon airframe and the visor on it does not fog up near as easily, it seems the element does but with the mouth vent open clears very quickly while the bike is moving... for soundwise this helmet isn't as quiet as i was expecting... sounds about the same as the icon only this one doesn't have the little high pitch whistle... the sound quality of the speakers is great! and the microphone for the phone works great too... did a little test and at about 90 mph the person i was talking to couldn't hear me anymore. when i ride i like to wear a backpack and it seems to interfere with the bluetooth signal if my phone is holstered on my hip... i put the phone in a pouch in my pack closer to the helmet and it quickly solved that problem... shields are quick and easy to change definately would recommend this to someone looking for a unique and different style!!
My friend and I just purchased these helmets from Shawn here at Moto and everything is great. First, his service was rockin'. Second, everything came in ok. The hemlets look great and are super light all things considered. Sound quality is very good. My friend called me from his bike and got it to about 8k RPM before I could hear the bike. Just a couple of things I'd like to see:
1. Easily exchanged visors
2. Anti-fog visor
3. Flip down sunshield
4. Better packing in the helmet box please. Sorry... I know these are meant to take a hit... but they are only good for one hit. Make sure it's protected before it gets to me please. The helmet was just put in the box with no protection.
Otherwise, very happy.
