I have used the Q2 for 3 years and was very satisfied. One of the pair broke, so I decided to upgrade to the G9, primarily for the Stereo capability. I did not rate durability, but my Q2 lasted 2-3 years. Apparently there is no repair on the Q2. I would like an exchange program, but as far as I can tell once the warranty has expired, it is a throw-away
I especially like:
1. Sound quality
2. Quick Pairing (Much easier to pair than the Q2)
3. Voice activation
4. MP3 Stereo
5. Choice of microphones
6. Noise cancelling is outstanding.
7. Voice calling works much better than the Q2
8. Better button layout than Q2
9 Installation on the helmet was straightforward.
Did not like:
1. 1 microphone failed, but I was using the boom on one helmet and the wired on the other so I had a spare.
2. Installation manual a bit complex, but so is the G9
3. While listening to my mp3 the first time I coughed and it switched to the radio. I hope there is a fix for this.
The Q2 gave outstanding battery life and the G9 advertises even better. The antenna should improve the distance, though I have not tried it, yet with another motorcycle. I was happy with the Q2 so I think I will be happy the touted improvements of the G9.
Yes, I recommend this product.
