This is my first ever helmet Bluetooth and it is great.
This is my first ever helmet Bluetooth and it is great. Took about 30-40 minutes to install as this was the first time I have done it. The longest part was deciding where to mount it. The speakers included are decent for music and great for a phone.

Keeps its Bluetooth connection reliably!
Excellent headset. Unlike so many products, it connects well via Bluetooth and doesn't lose connection. This is key, so many other Bluetooth products drop connection periodically. Not so here, love it!

Great product by Cardo
Quick firmware update after the initial charge and I was off and running. Mounted easily to helmet and paired up to Triumph Trophy with no issues. Have ridden in the heavy rain with no integrity problems. Music sounds great through supplied speakers.

Is it easy to install?
The box comes with a full installation kit and an easy-to-follow guide. According to our experience a novice should take no more than 30 minutes to install it. A veteran – not more than 5.
Will it fit my helmet?
Yes. It can be fitted to virtually any helmet – Full face, dirt-bike, open face, 3/4, modular or half helmet. It will even fit on most ski helmets. For installation on half helmets and ski helmets, you will need to purchase the Boom Microphone Cradle (a.k.a half helmet kit), sold separately.
Can it be charged while riding?
Yes. Cardo communication systems can be charged while riding. Simply plug it into the bike's 12V charger or a battery pack. Switch it back on and keep on riding
Do I need a phone for it to work?
Your intercom and radio features are completely phone independent. You don’t need a phone to operate them. You’ll need a phone (or some other Bluetooth media player) to stream music and, of course, to make and receive calls.
Is it possible to use it with my own earbuds / speakers?
While your unit comes right out of the box with one of the best set of speakers in the business, you can always plug in your favorite earbuds or aftermarket speakers via the standard 3.5mm jack and ride on.
I’m a lone rider, should I go for the FREECOM 1 or the Q-solo?
FREECOM 1 is the ideal choice for the sole rider. It has larger speakers, more advanced Bluetooth, longer battery life and an app connectivity.
Will it pair with any other Bluetooth intercoms?
FREECOM 1 is designed for the sole rider. If you wish to use intercom, either with a passenger or with another rider we recommend going for the FREECOM 2 or the FREECOM 4
Can I use this product in the rain?
Sure. All cardo units are IP67 waterproof. This means you can ride in the rain, and enjoy top communication.
