Buy a scala rider cardo Q 1 2 3 or 4.

Most of the cheap shite sold with in built stuff is muck.
I got a duchini lot with in built blue tooth but it leaked like fuck at the visor.
Noisey as fuck too.

Agv shark and Schubert do versions comparable with their helmets.
The scala will work with all helmets.

Built-in is usually shite for lesser helmets, but for Schuberth et al it's usually a brand like Sena (not shite).

But will today's built-in bluetooth profile - regardless of brand - pair with next year's?

Just buy a normal lid and fit an aftermarket bluetooth set-up - removable liners make it simple to fit them.

True, unless you are prepared to shell out Ä700+ for a Schubert C4 with the built in headphones microphone and intercom unit.

Essentially this is a bespoke version made by scala for Schuberth so if you dont already have a Schuberth C4 then a scala rider cardo Q 1 2 3 or 4 kit added to your existing helmet is the way to go.

Have one myself, and to be honest it doesnt get turned on 90% of the time.
Nice to have for a bit of music on a really long trip, or to chat with other riders while on tour, but the last thing I would consider using it for would be for work (or anyone else for that matter) to be able to contact me while riding. saddle time is my time and no one elses

Schuberth C4 with built in sena bluetooth will set you back about €900(with built in FM radio). Schuberth C3 also have a costly built in bluetooth option. Vox answer.
However you can get interphone bluetooth kits that fit to any existing helmet for under €100. It can be paired to satnav and phone at the same time. I had my own phone and satnav paired to kit, then paired my work phone to satnav. Any button answer.

AGV Compact fitted with Sena speakers, boom mic & clamp-mount...

and

Scorpion ADX-1 fitted with Sena speakers, boom mic & clamp-mount...

and

Sena 10C (Bluetooth comms + 1080p video camera)...

and

Sena SMH5 basic Bluetooth comms...

Eeither Sena unit can be fitted to either helmet.

All for under Ä900 total. More versatile than a lid with built in comms. Works well for me.

I need one as well for similar reason... some days I’m on call for work for 8 hours a day... if I don’t answer or call back within 5 mins it means big shit... so at least with the Bluetooth I can be out on the bike, not sitting at home waiting for the phone to ring.

I went for a Schuberth R2 with a built-in SC1 Bluetooth system made by Sena.

I bought mine from helmet city online as they do finance and are pretty cheap too.

I would have bought from visorshop aka Crossans in Newry, didn’t realise they did finance too.

Good crowd, good range of stuff. Well priced.

By the way my Schuberth R2 was under £400 shipped with SC1 system included and pre-installed.
Date stamp less than a year old too.

How are you getting on with the R2 ??
It looks like it might fit a little different to the previous generation of Schuberths (C3 & S2)

I think the OP was talking about helmets with integrated comms ??

He was, and I was saying don't bother, but instead get a helmet he likes and retro-fit a decent separate comms unit - (unless he goes for the megabucks lids) cheaper and doesn't confine him to the helmet brand's chosen BT unit, which may be gack.

I bought it after trying on a C4 and an E1 in a shop... they didnít have an R2 in stock... those fit me fine so figured the R2 would be grand but I actually initially found the R2 to be a pretty round fit.

For the first short while I had a bit of a pressure point on the tip of my forehead, so wore a thin buff on my forehead while wearing it in, to help gain a little more space where the pressure was.

Now it fits perfectly, good helmet, nice and quiet, thereís a latch on the bottom-middle of the visor to get a good seal against wind and rain, I think Iíll have to grind the latch down slightly to make it easier to close, as I canít actually get enough pressure on it to close while wearing it.

The integrated system is good, good volume, thereís only two buttons to operate the menus, so for more intricate shit you need to remember which button to hold down for how long or which combination etc. My inter phone F4 was a bit more intuitive but nowhere near as good for sound or volume.

Looking at the helmet you wouldnít know thereís any Bluetooth in it, completely flush and integrated.

The menu is a bit odd. Don't know how you are supposed to remember it all. I have figured out though if you hold - for 5 seconds the FM turns on. Press + for a full second until it beeps twice to search for the station you want to listen to.
Or is it the other way around? A similar combination will operate any bluetooth friendly music app on your phone.

Vox answer is frustrating though. I have a C4 and sometimes it will only answer if I have the visor down. Trying to find the button to answer while riding is impossible.

Must put that to the test, the only thing Iíve done is answer calls and on occasion Iíve put on some slipknot after a bit of fiddling while stopped and had my phone on the quadlock on the handlebars. If ya make the effort youíll memorise what ya need I suppose.
