Cardo Systems, Inc., the market leader in wireless Bluetooth communications for helmet headsets, has just released a new audio and microphone kit for half-helmets.
We tested a Cardo Scala Rider Q2 back in 2008, and were impressed with its quality and ease of use, and we’re currently testing a new Schuberth C3 flip-up equipped with an integrated Cardo Bluetooth system. Up to now, Cardo’s Bluetooth communication systems were only available for full-face helmets, but this new accessory kit allows owners of popular half-helmets to enjoy the benefits of Bluetooth communication on their motorcycle. We haven’t tested the kit, but if it maintains the high level of quality we’ve see in previous Cardo products it should be a nice accessory for riders wanting on-bike communication options. Following is Cardo’s press release:
The audio kit is an accessory for use with the company’s line of scala rider® Q2™ MultiSet PRO, Q2™ MultiSet, Q2™ PRO, Q2™, and TeamSet™ PRO and TeamSet™ Bluetooth enabled rider-to-rider communication headsets. These products are designed to comfortably fit riders who use nearly all brands of half-helmets when riding their motorcycles. The kit attaches in minutes and offers secure fastening to the straps of the helmet using the patent pending method.
Each kit also contains two sets of ultra-slim speakers, a single speaker and dual speakers, that plug into a standard 3.5 mm audio headphone jack, along with ear curtains, and microphone sponges. Similar to other Cardo Systems audio kit products, this kit also includes a 3.5mm audio input jack to quickly plug into various music devices.
“Our Audio and Microphone Kit for Half-Helmets is proof of our commitment to motorcycle riders” said Abraham Glezerman, CEO of Cardo Systems, Inc. “We offer motorcyclists who utilize half-helmets to experience the amazing audio quality and long-range capabilities of our scala rider headsets. Our kit makes available the unparalleled safety and convenience of headsets for an ever expanding audience of motorcycle enthusiasts. ”
The new Audio & Microphone Kit for Half-Helmets is now available through select distributors, retail outlets, specialty motorcycle shops, and directly from the Cardo Systems web site at www.cardosystems.com.
