Excellent for Calls and Music
I reviewed a lot a headset before deciding on the Packtalk Slim. It has all of the features and clarity of the Packtalk Bold, but with the battery sitting in a separate unit at the back of the helmet so the control is very...well...slim

Best in show
For its sound quality, ease of use, low profile, and customer service, I have absolutely no hesitation recommending that all riders immediately switch to the PTSlim unless you absolutely need 3 bluetooth devices or you're really into electrical hum.
