I've had this set for about 2 weeks now. The setup and installation is as simple as it gets. The hardest part of the entire setup is just placing the speakers where they match your ears in your helmet. (Which is not all that hard) When I purchased the G4, I also purchased the "wired microphone" accessory set to use in my full faced helmet. (HJC IS-16) Once you have the speakers in the right position, the sound is great. The volume has plenty of range and there have been times I've had to turn it down to hear traffic. I've used the bluetooth phone, the intercom (paired with an older Q2 Pro) and the plug in for iPod. All work flawlessly. The only thing you need to realize is, when you are using a plugged in MP3 player, the Vox is disabled. You must actually push the button to answer the phone or initiate an intercom call.
Contrary to popular belief, you can also use this on a half-helmet. I also have a GMax G-55 and used the glue mount and original boom mic on the helmet. To mount the speakers, I used the "cool weather" ear covers and they work awesome. Wind noise is almost non-existant and my ride partners said it sounded great over the intercom. Again, sound in the speakers, even on the half-helmet is great.. I highly recommend this product..
