The G9 is another level up in sound quality and mic technology. It's a decent product. It may be intuitive to some but not totally to me. When I press the rider A button, if there isn't a Rider A available, it keeps repeating Rider A not available again and again. Also, it sometimes disconnects from cell phone or the two-way intercom, and it has nothing to do with terrain and barriers to radio waves. The voice command doesn't seem to recognize my spoken names in my phone book except by chance.
Now, do I like it? Overall, I'd say yes. When it's working correctly it's pretty good. But these things have yet to achieve the level of connectivity of two-way radios or cell phone to cell phone. But battery life is good. Sound, even with hearing protection in, is good. And I'm still waiting for the evolved solution.
Yes, I recommend this product.

The Rebel is expensive, but it is great in warm or cool weather. With venting galore, four of the vents zipper controlled, and a thermal liner for those cool evenings or coastal foggy rides.
Yes, I recommend this product.
