Shoei bluetooth
« on: December 15, 2019, 06:52:52 pm »
Hi,  I’ve had an early Christmas present of my first Shoei (NXR Mystify TC1) helmet (always used Schubert).  I’d appreciate some help on choosing a Bluetooth set for the helmet.  I’ve watched some YouTube stuff but I’m left a little confused.  My needs are simple and my budget for one is no more than £125 unless extra cost is justified essential tech (Mesh, for example?).

I need connectivity to iPhone and Navigator V, music playing.
Pillion comms, share music, call sharing.
Must be waterproof.
Charge on the go if possible?
Occasional group ride but would consider this a luxury.

Many thanks.

I think your budget might be restrictive if you want quality. Brian has a Sens 20S and I have a Sena 20S Evo, the sound quality and range are superb.

As Rae says, you may have to increase your budget for a decent system, and Sena seems to be the favourite.

I've used Cardo systems with Shoei helmets for the past few years, with great success. Presently I have a Cardo Scala Rider Teamset fitted, which I believe cost around £130 a couple of years ago. This was installed for free by the dealer.

The battery lasts for around a week when touring (riding 5 - 6 hours each day) and the charging port uses the same lead as my Smartphone.

I'm still using the Navigator 1V, so I don't know whether that would make any difference?

Many thanks. I realise my budget was rather puny.  I’ve re-negotiated with the ‘long-haired Commander’ (wife) and I’m looking at a Cardo PackTalk Slim in part, because of this not un-humorous FortNine comparison Sena & Cardo:

Job done.

 Thanks again.

FortNine is good fun and educational. Here's his latest, but on cheaper devices:

Be aware that the Slimline would not fit on my Schuberth C3, at least not the rear-slung nape of the neck bit, as the draught skirt is not by-passable... 8)

After being a Cardo owner G9, and I was perfectly happy with the Cardo but after moving to Sena I realised what I had been missing. The Sena sound was clearer and louder, in fact the Sena was the first intercom I had to turn the volume down.
I understand that things have moved on since my G9 days but just giving my experience.
