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

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.

Beyond expectations
Love in pacific NW and got this to deal with rain and long drives. The ease of instillation, sound quality, and noise canceling are amazing and well beyond what I expected. I use the voice commands on a regular basis and make phone calls and nobody even realizes I am riding at 70mph or riding fire trails.
