I like your delivery it made me laugh. So I’m buying a no friends Cardo or do you know about the bmw Bluetooth, how does that stack up against the 2019 offerings?
Mohammed Kawasmi (10 days ago)
Hey Ryan! you forgot to mention the utterly pointless and rather annoying jacks that the Cardo uses to connect the speakers and mic! They can definitely be felt under the liner if the EPS doesn't have deep deep grooves!

FWIW the ambient mic on the Sena is garbage. If someone wants to talk to you via the ambient mic, they have to talk right into the side of your head.

Dirk Evans (15 days ago)
Nice job as usual Ryan and as always.,,, entertaining. Don’t know if Cardo offered JBL speakers in 2018 but they do now in 2019 and I believe they still had a larger speaker than Sena even before adding the JBL option. Bought a Cardo Packtalk with the JBL option last month and I’m extremely pleased with the sound. Cheers

Time for an update on communicators yet? Any major changes you would talk to at this point or is it essentially the same old for now?

Could you publish a new one of these every few months. Asking for a friend: )
Wife and I still using the SMH-10. Works fine for dual sporting on and off the trail. Only thing we miss is having a GoPro Hero 4 as we had the Sena Bluetooth backpack that brought our conversation to the video. There are quotes from that time that will live in infamy LOL!

I was once a strong advocate for Sena. My opinion has changed because Sena will not back their products. I have experienced a 50% failure rate for the Sena products I have owned. The speakers have not improved in 10 years and frankly are rubbish. No more Sena’s for me.

Rodrigue Zahr (1 month ago)
Hilarious and unique as usual. For a newbie in the motorcycle world, I would like to know how exactly these devices work. I mean are they for communication between bikers, music listening or both?
Rodrigue Zahr (1 month ago)
TideFury24 thanks for the info. Sounds like a must have accessories.
TideFury24 (1 month ago)
Both and talking the phone. Me and a friend have the first gen Sena 10C which is also a camera, so that can take pictures and movies. Can't complain about them, had them for 4 years and they've been through hell and high water (I know the saying) and still work fine. We use them to talk to eachother, if we're on long hauls we'll cut out and listen to whatever, and with just a button press we're talking again. Here is a snip from the camera, there is a new Pro version of it, don't know the speccs of it though. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=noKRwLplX5I

Unfortunately Cardo's support is complete garbage. My PackTalk slim died after three months and they won't replace or refund. I agree that the features are better, but Sena wins by virtue of being willing to pick up the phone.

Nightraid yourface (1 month ago)
Hey Ryan, I’ve actually got this exact helmet, what’s the best way you’ve found if you have, to mount a front facing GoPro to it? I tried like a side front mounted arm but it didn’t work with the sharp angles on the front of the helmet, tried using extra 3M pads but that just made the free floating GoPro w/ aluminum case slowly sag
Forrest Porter (1 month ago)
Might be a stupid question, but does anyone know if a pack talk slim will pair to a freecom if I went with the cheaper option for my passenger? I don't really ride in groups
I defiantly prefer the cardo over sena. I own both!
@Herrisj the volume is plenty loud enough, offers a like speed feature in the volume controls as an option so it can automatically up the volume to accommodate for wind and engine noise as well as lower it's self when your stopped really you don't notice this because it's just enough. Also cardo offers units with jbl speakers sena can't beat that!

any chance to get an update of this since sena brought out the +Mesh this year?
F H (1 month ago)
@Dr. Mercurio Arboria completely see your point from a rational angle but it's hard for Germans not to follow instructions. Shoei manhandled me into getting the SRL2 so all is lost and I've already ordered the +Mesh. Part of me is happy that everything will be nice and snugly fitted into its preallocated slots. The other part is ashamed...
Dr. Mercurio Arboria (1 month ago)
Still Cardo. Why pay for a non-waterproof, bluetooth unit that will require an adapter for mesh? Buy the Cardo and spare yourself the hassle.

What about audio quality from speakers and microphone? Riding down the highway with earplugs it's important with high volume AND clarity. When talking to your friend a good microphone improves the situation.

I can't remember the name but you pay about $99/year and it's sends out a distress call if you get into a crash or anything where your phone might not have signal or you're too beaten up to use your phone

Go with the Packtalk Bold. Slim is having a LOT of issues with the USB port pulling out. Happened to me and Cardo's support is stupid slow (4 weeks and still don't have replacement).

Armand Scholtes (2 months ago)
I did buy the Cardo Packtalk Slim after seeing many videos, and especially this one, end of a August 2018. This unit worked more or less fine (although I had to factory reset it twice and the comm setup with others was a challenge ) for a month an a half, until it simply died. Drove to the office in the morning and had the thing turned on (so working fine), just to not be able to turn it back on for the way back home. Sent it back to the reseller and got a new one. Mounted it, set it up. Worked fine for the first 200km (it was pouring down), then its artificial intelligence came to life. Functions that weren't triggered did spontaneously activate (like the radio) unable to shut these down. Communication with the mobile phone, the TomTom and the other fellow riders, who I was leading fir a 1600km Tour continued to break up. Until I only heard the radio on which no station was neither selected nor selectable, so just some white noise. Did I mention that the Cardo did no longer respond to any keys commands and that I couldn't switch the unit off? Arrived at the very first hotel (after detaching the speakers because of the radio noise I couldn't turn off) I let the Cardo die of battery (because you cannot unplug the battery) before recharging it in order to do a factory reset. It kept working for yet another 2 hours before having again comm issues. Factory Reset. Not much of an improvement. So I decided to turn it off and let it turned off for the remaining 1000km. Arrived at home I unmounted everything and sent it straight back to the reseller for a refund. I will never buy Cardo again.
MegacityGU (1 month ago)
I bought three Cardo units to communicate with another rider and my pillion. Endless issues with connectivity. I was only ever able to speak to my pillion once, despite factory resets, Bluetooth resets etc. Switched to Sena and problems solved. It’s telling that Schuberth and Shoei switched from Cardo to Sena ...

I love how this is the video that pops up when you look up Cardo and Sena, lol it had to be the Letterkenny one! It's also on the Cardo website! I can only imagine what people think if they've never seen an F9 video or Letterkenny.

Simen Saether (2 months ago)
Any chance you'll review the Shoei GT Air II and the integrated Sena SRL 2 intercom for it? I suspect I already know what to expect from your reviews of the Sena 20s and the first GT Air helmet, but thought I'd ask just the same.
