  • The smartest thing Sena or Cardo could ever do is make buttons user programmable. Every problem ever solved!

  • Personally my Cardo packtalk slim is a piece of shit.... Didn't last an entire season without the volume up button breaking. The mic is complete dogshit, it's not clear at all and I often have to yell for people to hear me. I have different friends in different riding groups and the one I ride with the most use Sena. Im sorry but Cardo isn't really great at all.

  • The seal on the sena base plate is horrendous though. Prone to failure and then disaster with water entering the system and all you end up with is screeching of static.

  • Hey, Ryan. Rewatching some of the old vids. I currently have an old 20S (my first intercom) and a Bold (latest). I have yet to try the Slim. I try to avoid sticking bulky stuff to my helmet so I was wondering about going back to headphones. I never used it for chatting with others, mostly because the people I ride don't have any nor we like talking while riding. I use them entirely for music and GPS, and other phone stuff. With that in mind, I am wondering if they are still worth it or maybe I could back to Bluetooth headsets. Maybe a pair of Sony wf-1000xm3 can do the trick. Maybe a topic worth exploring in a video? Anyway, I might be trying it out in the near future. Cheers.

  • Pro tip having just done a group ride with 2 packtalk bolds and 2 packtalk slims, the bold seems to have longer battery life? More importantly, when it comes to charging, it is much easier to plug in the bold than the slim.

  • Listening to HEY CARDO all fucking day long, goes old real fast. We returned our CARDO PackTalk Bold Duo kit, cause of three things... 1) saying or hearing "HEY CARDO" all day long... and 2) no Push-To-Talk option... 3) no handlebar remote controls available. We have put new batteries in our old SENA 20S and they work as good as ever. Batteries available on AMAZON

  • Sena is expensive, I've been a user Sena smh5 better than any intercom I've used . Upgraded to Sena 20s then upgraded to Sena 10c Pro for video recording and intercom at once . Used in absolutely heavy rain , no issues at all , the audio quality is superb. It's like buy iphone knowing that there are better phones coming from one country only . Still iphone wins , same thing with Sena

  • I bought the Cardo Slim, more or less because of this review. I've gone through 3 Cardo Packtalk slims.... in 2 seasons... for different problems each time. That's bad. And I have to pay customs (from Canada) for warranty work because they make you ship to Chicago and back... They can have a long warranty all they want but shifting costs for shipping and customs to replace your broken unit that shouldn't be a problem in the first place is a jerk move. So I issue a warning only. Was I happy with my Packtalk slim? Reasonably so, yes... But at this point I may as well have bought a brand new Sena which probably wouldn't have let me down so many times in the first place (admittedly, anecdotal evidence... other riders I've talked to have attested to Sena being "bullet proof", I'm sure they aren't but that's just what I've heard). If you do have to return for a warranty claim, insist that they cover all the costs or publish your bad experience with them and let it be known. Maybe it will steer away future customers, as well it should. Now I don't know if Sena acts the same with returns, but this is annoying AF, and enough to make me consider dropping comms altogether for a set of headphones or rigging something up myself. Cue the trolls...

  • So I went with the Cardo packtalk, I really hate the cardo voice commands. It just needs a loud yell, so if your friend doesn’t have coms unit and you try to talk at him it’ll pick it up as a voice command. Then when you want to give it a voice command and yell Hey, you basically gotta scream at it and it never recognizes it.

  • nothing new under the sun still? I would expect portable wimax + wifi access points and smartphones in every pocket/handlebar would have solved this problem for less than 2150 euros per ten riders. The cardo slim costs 430 €/£/$ for the dual pack. that's insane for a low powered analogue radio repeater/transceiver and a headset.

  • Need some advise. Changed from sena 10 to packtalk bold and hate them. Let me tell you why and maybe you can tell me what will work best for me. I want to use it for talking to my passeger and my passenger wants it to mainly listen to music. The sena, I pushed a button and talked, very simple. I rearly need to speak to other riders. The Packtalk was always picking up wind noise and lowering my passenger's music and listening to noise from wind. I did all the adjustments, bought bigger foam covers. It's way to sensitive and useless. What system would you recommend? Packtalk did have good speakers. Thanks

  • Man I love your videos. However, why I feel like you’re bias toward to cardo in this videos?😆. Honestly I have a cardo palktalk bold and I disliked it completely for many reasons. 1- it cuts off from music for no reason especially when the phone is in my pocket or bag. Eventually when I mounted the phone on RAM mount on the wheel started to work fine. WTH. 2- and this is main reason why I hated, it’s not working at the range cardo claiming it to work at. My buddy has to be riding within 2 meter radius to me other wise the connection is lost and when we get back together sometimes it fails to reconnect. Bummer 3- customer service sucks so bad. Mine went off for no reason. I sent it back for replacement and guess what, nobody home. No one replies to emails, phone calls, Whatsapp, I also got transferred from country to the other. You name the hassle. Oh you might say your device is with older software version. It’s always up to date 😎 Eventually, cardo ,yes, they do have the communication system but they need to fix their short range and the improve the communication between the device and the phone
