I got this helmet as a b-day gift and right out of the gates i was unable to sync up with my phone(major bummer). Road tested it anyways. I found that the speakers are a little too much on the treble and not enough of bass. Although I will say the volume had no issues at speed. Outside helmet noise was a bit much and the drag created at higher speeds will cause neck fatigue unless you have a taller windscreen than a VFR 800. Overall these complaints are tolerable considering the price of the helmet. It will be tough to find a comparable for this price.

bought this helmet right when it 1st came out, was skeptical about the bluetooth but the comfortable fit and suede liner finally sold me on it. I was surprised with the bluetooth as i have had very few problems with streaming music through my phone to the helmet, i will say anything over 80 gets a little muffled but anytime else it makes it nice riding to some tunes. thats all i use it for so i cant really comment on calling through the bluetooth system.
Saved my head in a crash about two hours ago. It was a very comfortable helmet, most comfortable if had. The speakers had only high pitch which hurts your ears, and was a pain to keep connected to my phone. At one point the blue tooth display was upside down and would right itself. anything over 40 the vents made a high pitched whistle. Battery was questionable. they only manufacture clear lenses for it. Comfort it has it. Don't expect anything spectacular from the blue tooth.
Helmet fit and style where good, Bluetooth is about useless as it does not hold a charge more than a few hours. I was not able to use the bluetooth as the microphone is of poor quality and does not even work well stoped and is useless while ridding.
Also wire's continualy fall out from the helmet liner.
I plan to return this helmet for something basic until someone comes up with a better product.
I saw this helmet online, and i liked it a lot. Upon receiving it for a birthday present I am not content. The helmet is very comfortable and isn't too heavy, The bluetooth also seems to link easy to multiple devices. The speakers on the other hand are terrible. There is no bass whatsoever and it hurts to listen to. I may be an audiophile (i work for a noise consultant) but this helmet just isn't doing it for me. It is being returned for an Arai or similar.
