Bought this to be able to take calls while I'm on my bike. it works really good consider price. I have yet only tried the call feature and music. people I talk to on the phone complain about low mic volume but I hear them loud as day. music volume though is a bit low considering all the engine noise.
all in all well worth the money.
poor audio problem but othe...

The package came in a small generic brown box with a useless instruction guide for english and a USB wall charger that outputs 200mA, which you won't be using for any other electronics, so I immediately discarded it and use my normal wall chargers.
It charges via 3.5mm USB adapter, which I prefer not to see in products, as I don't think there is a standard for 3.5MM USB connector pinout, so don't loose that cable!
Audio quality is unfortunately terrible. I'm assuming it's a defect in the manufacturing,
as no other reviews mention this. It's as if there's a bridged connector leading to the headphone port, causing strange reverberation, vague vocals, and some instruments sounding highly compressed. I tested with a standalone pair of headphones, and the sound was the same. The included headset themselves seem to have a fairly good audio quality to them when connected directly to a media device, and the whole system can get QUITE loud, so there should be no problem with wind noise.
I have limited testing to check audio quality for calls and music, but the one call I made in-doors with the headset installed in my helmet I was told there was a lot of echo, possibly a result of the wiring problem.
The buttons are rather small for motorcycle use with gloves, but is understandable with the fact there's a total of 9 buttons! Buttons have a satisfying click to them through gloves, and the entire unit appears completely sealed from rain. You get various commands: play/pause, headset volume, forward track, back track, redial, call-back, answer/hang-up, google/apple voice commands.
Depending on what country you live, the blue activity/standby LED can cause problems. for the USA flashing blue LED's are illegal for non-emergency vehicles. I've already been pulled over from a camera with a SMALLER blue LED, so this one is more likely to cause problems.
Battery life is either amazing or impressive, I've yet to need to charge it from my week of light use, so I can't comment on what low-battery warning it may give, vocal or tone.
If the problem I have is just a defect that was missed by quality-assurance, I'm concerned how it was missed, but if my unit didn't have this problem then I'd say it's a great product that has a feature unique to it over other products, not counting name-brand systems costing hundreds of dollars that provide multi-unit group chat simultaneously, which is a limitation of this unit, it can only do 1-to-1.
Thank you so much for your purchase.
This headset can offer 6 riders to talk with.
But , do not mean 6 person can talk at the same time.
Only two to two speaking, if you want to talk to others,
you need to change the channel.
For example, A,B,C,D,E,F
A and B are talking, then C is calling A,
A will receive the notice , then change the channel to talk with C.
If you want to make a group communication,no need to change the channel,
then , how about this 4 person group talking at the same time:
This one, A,B,C,D can talk with each other no need to change.

I bought this headset because i wanted to be available when driving on my bike. The item comes in a box and is packed properly. The best part about this headset is the means of installation; you screw the click on adapter half on the inside of your helmet, half outside and then secure it with bolts. This is an excellent and in my opinion, the best way to attach things to your helmet (like an action cam)
Pairing it with a smartphone is super easy via Bluetooth. The installation in the helmet is a
tricky thing; you have to make up your own methods of installation, as the manual says nothing about it. But with some thinking, you can manage the wiring inside the helmet, as well as setting up the microphone near your mouth.
When it comes to sound quality; not that good when listening to music. Audio sounds muffled and tinny, but ok enough. If you want the best experience with that; i would recommend an earplug headset. What surprised me was the overall voice clarity and sound when speaking with someone over the phone. At low speeds the other person hears you perfectly, but at high speeds (100km/h >) you can't hear anything anymore, but the other person still hears you perfectly. Its a mixed situation that one.
When driving, operating the small buttons is just a crime. I can only manage to hit the big buttons, but the volume buttons and surrounding ones are too small to push when driving.
Last thing to mention; the battery usage is low and its waterproof!
