CARDO Unisex-Adult Bold Duo Motorcycle Bluetooth Communication and Entertainment Headset With Sound By JBL (Black, Dual Pack), 2 Pack
So my wife and I finally had the time to ourselves and wanted to go out for a run. We are not techie at all. With that being said, overall it took us no longer than 30-40 mins to install in our helmets, turn on, Bluetooth search for the talk pack, read on how to turn on music (minus the overnight charging).
The first thing I noticed about these intercoms was their build quality. Besides the ease of installation. I’m very glad we bought the jbl. The sound was crystal clear and the bass did come through fine. Yes they are very pricey but so worth it. The second thing I noticed was far better sound quality. Even when traveling well above the interstates speed limit!
I figured if you’re going on a couple to a few hour cruise and you’re sightseeing and going places you’ve never been before you’ll want to talk to your spouse or partner on some cool things you see like we do.
We are about to hit 50 so going for a cruise and able to listen to our music without having to fumble with your cell phone is a plus. I had my purse inside our saddle bag and was able to listen to the music fine. And sound was great. I was totally impressed.
I am very excited about the fact we can intercom with other riders and may be able to connect with them too to talk but that may be beyond our tech knowledge may have to trial and error it when we’re ready to use it.
If you’re a hard core bike rider or a weekend road warrior it’s a must have if you’re with a partner. For individuals, the music alone to listen to on rides and be able to pick up calls and such is great.
We also used a cell phone holder for motorcycles that held the phone in place by pinching the phone in the middle and has silicone bands that stretched around the corners of the phone for added security. We went along back roads over hills and some roads had some holes and unevenness and the phone didn’t budge.
Another thing that amazed me was the pairing. Do it once and forget it! I also love the “hey cardo” function similar to Siri and bixby on smart phones. You can pick up phone calls with a touch. Increasing volume was cool. It’s a turning wheel on the talk pack.
So this is my take on it. With the duo you’re able to individually listen to your own music but still be connected to your partner thru the intercom. There is no wind noise whatsoever. Their white noise
cancellation is excellent. You don’t hear any wind noise like you do on cell phones. Your partner will not hear your music or vice verse.
The Bluetooth allows the connectivity to both the cardo talk pack and you stay connected to your smart phone at the same time. It was perfect. When you spoke the music soften a bit so you can hear each other and then the music would come back to original volume.
Now one con was the instructions showed I could share my music with my wife but was not able to do that yet. Still need to figure that out. I can also vouch that these units are 100% waterproof after riding 3 days in downpours. I can only hope their customer service is better, but how will I find out since these are really high quality and work in all conditions!
