Question Which Bluetooth helmet communication device do you use?

If this question has been asked before please forgive me, I searched but got the "way too many so search terms are ignored" result
What helmet communication systems to you prefer?
Anyone have any experience with UClear products?
Do you use it for phone calls or music or what?

I've been using the Sena smh10 for the last few weeks... Easy install... Simple to operate... Quick pairing... Plenty loud for me (scorpion exo 700 helmet, ear plugs and DL1000) No issues as of yet..

Vega V-Tune, It's SoSo/Okay. But I wouldn't recommend it for the fallowing reasons.
  1. You can't carry on a conversation over 70 mph,either VIA Bluetooth to phone or another helmet.
  2. You can't deal with the manufacturer directly. It must be through who you bought it from.
  3. Music is a little tin-e
  4. Just doesn't get loud enough

There is an extensive thread on Uclear somewhere in the vendors section. If I recall correctly, the inmates debated the vendor on technical issues to which at some point the vendor had no answers anymore.

Scala Rider G9 and I love it. Have a J&M in my Arai and am not happy with it. Scala rider has far more options and much better sound quality. Bluetooth is seamless and so is intercom.
Easy to install and use.

I got it late last summer & it has been good. Easy to pair with my IPhone.
I put one on the kids (12 & 14)helmet also. It is nice to be able to talk to them about the things we see or for them to ask me quetions, like "Dad, why do you keep sticking your arm at other motorcycles?" , "a return wave, motorcyclist generally wave to each other". The can listen to music also if they want, paired with Ipod touch.

Scala G9 (SRC-S is based on the G9 and is in my Schuberth S2)

Good sound but quirky handling of the phone interface...

Bought a set, they worked o.k.. Both of them had broken headset jacks within 2 weeks, returned them for a refund.

Then I bought a used set of scala rider q2's; converted them to in-ear headphone type and they work o.k.. The range is decent, sound quality is decent, FM is iffy, mostly because it's hard to operate. Never used them for music (other than FM) or paired a phone/GPS etc so I cant comment on that.

Scala G9. Got them for Christmas and haven't used them much, but very impressed so far. Took a few tries at getting he speakers positioned perfectly, but once I did the sound is very good.

Check the thread on here for them. I looked at a bunch and this got the best reviews and pricing was very good. They work great.

SMH10 - use it for music playback only, paired with my nuvi 765t / mp3 player. Use earphone mounting plate, works great.
