Ponto positivo. Qualidade de áudio JBL excelente. Nota 10. Ponto negativo: colocar para funcionar plenamente é complicadíssimo . Já fiz a atualização necessária e mesmo assim ainda não consegui colocar para funcionar por comando de voz.
Ayant été surpris et suspicieux de cette "promotion" j'ai décidé d'investir. Et la quelle ne fut pas ma surprise lors de chaque étape du déballage. je m'explique: premièrement l'emballage autour de la boite était déchiré (un hasard me direz-vous) deuxièmement aucun film plastique sur les intercoms (bon ils ne sont pas obligé non plus me direz-vous) troisièmement il manquait des éléments dans chaque boite quatrièmement en regardant de plus près les intercoms, je me rends compte que l'un d'eux à déjà été utilisé (visible sur la broche dorée et trace noire sur la partie argenté de l'intercom, comme un frottement très difficile à faire partir). En clair si vous vous posez la question comme moi de l'intercom et de sa promo, et bien sachez que cela n'est nullement du neuf mais bien du reconditionné. Sur ce point, très déçu par Cardo et Amazon qui nous mentent tout les deux sur le fait que le produit est neuf. et là , alors que tu pensais avoir fait une bonne affaire, et bien tu te sens prit pour un pigeon.
Decidimos comprar el Cardo Packtalk Duo para poder agruparnos con nuestros amigos usando el modo DMC. Queríamos poder conectar un intercomunicador Bluetooth a nuestro grupo usando el modo Bridge ya que no todos podíamos pagar un intercomunicador de más de 200 EUR.
El primer pack que compramos (no era JBL) carecía de alcance tanto en el modo DMC como en el modo Bluetooth. Tan pronto como superabamos los 50 m, comenzamos a escuchar algo de distorsión y ruido estático. Los probamos tanto en un área muy amplia de la ciudad a velocidades de aproximadamente 40 km/h, como en carretera a velocidades de 90 km/h con resultados similares.
Pensamos que era una antena defectuosa, llamamos al servicio técnico y al final acabamos devolviendo la unidad, todo decir que sin ningún problema por parte de Amazon.
El segundo pack que compramos (JBL) comenzó prometedor, lo cargamos y probamos en un entorno totalmente plano, aunque ligeramente urbano, y, aunque no se mantuvo fiel a sus 1,6 km anunciados, teníamos buena comunicación hasta aproximadamente 500m. Aunque no nos impresionó mucho, era mejor que el pack anterior, por lo que procedimos a instalarlos en nuestros cascos para realizar más pruebas.
Primero, el alcance es un problema, a veces podíamos escuchar estática y no entendernos tan pronto como dos coches se interponían entre nosotros (alrededor de 15-25 metros). No sabemos si sucede por interferencia de algún sistema de los propios coches o vete tu a saber, pero es un poco indignante.
En segundo lugar, los micrófonos que probamos son malos y baratos. No estamos seguros si estaban defectuosos o no, pero a los cuatro micrófonos (dos en cada pack, velcro y boom) les faltó claridad (demasiados bajos). Mientras estaba en una llamada a través de mi teléfono por bluetooth, dos de mis amigos notaron que la calidad era mala en comparación con mi intercomunicador chino. Es una lástima que entreguen estos micrófonos de baja calidad con un intercomunicador tan caro, especialmente estos que son JBL y que para INRI, se anuncian como "La mejor experiencia de sonido (The Ultimate Sound Experience)".
Para concluir, personalmente estoy decepcionado. A veces me pregunto si los packs Duo se venden más baratos porque no pasan alguna prueba de calidad de rango y están dirigidos a compradores que van a usarlo con su pasajero (ahí el rango no importa, estás a menos de un metro). Por otro lado, no entiendo como recibe críticas tan buenas de otros compradores. ¿Es que acaso hemos tenido mala suerte y nos han enviado unidades defectuosas? ¿O es que para la mayoría es su primer intercomunicador y no han probado ningún otro para comparar? En fin, siempre me quedará la duda.
Rider to pillion and rider to rider comms are excellent and the one feature that I am totally happy with. As mentioned in a few other reviews, the volume is perfect at low to mid speed and with no earplugs, but when you do motorway riding with earplugs you can forget about hearing anything as the max volume is way too low. Connectivity to most phones is great, but with my iphone xs, even though both cardo unit and my phone say they are connected, I find i need to switch bluetooth off and on again before they connect correctly; if i forget to do this then i have zero phone functionality until i can stop/ pull over and reconnect (this is still the case with the latest firmware). Connectivity to gps is rubbish as the bluetooth profile it connects with prevents my gps from playing any audio; if i forget to reconnect phone bluetooth then i get to think a lot in silence on my rides (like the good old days before fancy tech).
Bough these to replace older Scala units, just need them for satnav and intercom, good job I don't need them for the radio function. The speaker leads are so long that you need to fold the speaker cable in half to tuck it away in the head liner, and of course the headphone cable is also the FM aerial, so useless as the aerial is not functional. Why cant someone get a DAB radio installed using the external part as the aerial? Cars have DAB radios fitted and in a few years FM will be disbanded similar to analogue TV aerial, so if you do use the FM radio function, this will be going very soon.
Happy with the units, my older Scala had a screw fitting to attache the unit to the helmet, 2 plastic jaws and tightened with 2 small allan bolts, these units have a U clamp, but having said that when you slide the clamp between the helmet and liner it is very tight and I have bee at high speeds with this on and has not moved at all, so very happy about that. Intercoms' are very good, very good range, very clear at speed over 100moh, very clear, very happy.
Good power holding, have used the intercoms' for over 8 hours on and off one day, looked at the mobile app and still have over 60% of power left, very impressed.
Easy to set up my Android phone and TomTom satnav, no issues at all.
Bit pricey but you get what you pay for, so all in all very happy apart from the FM radio function.
Previously had the non JBL units which we had to return since one was defective. The JBL speakers are definitely louder and have more clarity to them compared to the standard speakers. You can hear each other clearly at speeds over 70MPH where as the standard speakers became very hard to hear at 50MPH. The auto connection when you come into range with the paired headset is smooth. The downsides to these is the range isn't as good as advertised in real world conditions, if you round a corner with a few trees the rider behind will encounter some interference. Also a minor inconvenience is the app won't always function correctly but it's rare. Overall they are decent quality and well worth a purchase if you ride with others.
as Ive said in the title improvement on sound quality from scala rider q2 pro system that I was previously using, the system was easily fitted but the voice control is much improved (once you get used to saying hey cardo before giving the command) really handy is the voice operated volume control which means not having to take the hands away from the bikes handlebars/controls. Managed to tune my pre-set radio chanels, connected my phone & sat nav with little issue and the same result when fitting the headset. Handy for me that the charging point on the headset also matches my LG Leon phone so that'll be one less lead for overnight charging to carry when away on trips.
So let me be clear. The review left yesterday was a knee-jerk (with the emphasis on "jerk") reaction to a thing I have been wanting for months and waiting for for weeks to arrive only to be told by the Swedish postal service the day before that they had no idea where it was. Not a reflection on the seller who did a great job of chasing up the whereabouts of my Cardo PackTalk Bold dual pack. And it arrived. Albeit with a hole in the envelope so I'm guessing someone, somewhere wondered what I had bought and felt they were at liberty to take a closer look.
Let me be clear – service from the seller... Great!
Now onto the actual thing itself.
I have never owned a motorcycle comms unit, even though I have been riding bikes for over 30 years. But my wife is taking her test soon and here in Sweden, I am allowed to accompany her as an instructor. With our long term plan being able to go on motorcycle vacations together, a comms system was going to be important. And having tried the "ear-buds band-aided into ears" approach (along with microphone jammed uncomfortably between face and helmet cheek pads), a proper system was in order. Cue several hours watching review videos on "da Choob".
The clincher for me was RyanF9's 5-way comparison battle between Cardo and Sena (Thank you Ryan and FortNine). Pretty much every video I had seen put Cardo slightly ahead but Ryan is nothing if not brutally honest about any shortcomings of motorcycle-related items he reviews. Check out FortNine's YouTube channel. You can thank me later.
Out of the box, everything was there except for the USB charger cable's plug. But it's just a standard USB charger plug so... meh.
Installation of the unit, the JBL headphones and the microphone were a little fiddly. This is in no way the fait of Cardo's design but more because getting the various bits out of a full-face race-graded Suomy helmet is not easy. Also, because of the design of the helmet inner, Cardo's suggested placement of the speakers does not actually correspond to where my ears actually are – the cavity in the Suomy is actually behind my ears (allowing space for the arms of sunglasses i guess) – my ears are actually partially covered by the back edge of the cheek pads. So that's where the speakers are now located, held in place by the velcro backing on the cheek pad material cover. Nowhere else for me to attach them.
Microphone went in place as easy as pie, as did the mounting for the unit itself on the outside left of the helmet. Again, because of the design of the Suomy bucket, there was some jiggery-pokery in getting cables to lie in unobtrusive places but some persistence paid off. With everything in place, I powered it up and, sitting at the kitchen table, put on my helmet.
The voice recognition functions are great. Watch Cardo's installation video on YouTube and even with that in mind, you'll be amazed how easy this thing is to control. Paired up to my phone I had Alter bridge blaring in my ears inside a minute and "Hey Cardo..." worked a treat. Volume up, down, next track, previous track and so on. Made a phone call, ended call, played more music. Bingpot!
I took it for a quick road test and it still works great. The position of the headphones is enough to slightly reduce wind noise and when playing music, it's amazingly clear. When combined with ear plugs to further reduce wind noise you do lose some of the top end but that's inevitable. After all, what is wind noise if not an overload of top end? But it did not cover the sound of a 996cc Desmosedici engine which, if you're a Ducatisti, you'll appreciate.
The only thing I've not yet done is actually test out the comms bit. But then, the wife is away until Tuesday and there's no point in fitting the second pack to her helmet until I know where her ears are (if you get my meaning).
DL/DR Summary: Great sound quality (so far), slightly expensive but so far absolutely worth it. The pocket guide is not that easy to follow and the manual controls are convoluted and confusing so go and take a look at the YouTube tutorial and relax in the splendour of voice commands.
