I'm reviewing the Schuberth SRC-S for S2 helmets after 500 miles or so of use. I really did not like the price. Let me put that out there, first. However, some of the alternative communication systems will either not work with the chin spoiler and internal visor controls, or would change the aerodynamics of the helmet (ok, minimally, but who wants extra wind noise on a premium helmet?) Research showed the SRC-S was definitely the most elegant solution, so I dropped the hammer ($429 at time of purchace, but the good folks at Revzilla were happy to apply Zilla Cash to retro-match thier sale price- woot!). Install was easy. As a tip, I recommend removing the entire helmet liner, not just the snaps that hold the cheek liner in, unlike the user guide. Install was definitely easier without the the liners out of the way. It took a few fitting adjustments to get the speaker positions comfortable while riding. Overall, the install was a breeze.
Pairing with a phone and/or GPS is a snap. Turn-by-turn directions from either my Galaxy S4 phone or Garmin GPS were clear and prompt, interrupting music or the built-in FM tuner, as needed - and worked seamlessly. Think 'set and forget' On the bike, the buttons were hard to 'feel' at first, but once my gloved fingers were trained to feel the ridges bracketing the controls for 'A', 'Call', 'B', and '-', '+' buttons, on-the go calls and source input switches are becoming more muscle memory than thought.
Like others have mentioned on reviews, the FM radio is pretty cool, but the antenna seems weak for being integrated into the helmet, something I would like to see Schuberth improve. Maybe a software update, or a replacement antenna? There were a few times riding around in town the signal fuzzed out when I didn't think it should.
None of my riding buddies have a Cardo Scala system (the basis for the SRC-S), so I have not yet had the pleasure of pairing with another helmet SRC, but those of us who had a bluetooth phone communication system were able to converse via cell call. It would be nice to have a way to pair with other systems in a less clunky way.
Although it took a little time to get used to the controls, overall, I'm happy with the SRC-S. I feel it was a good purchase, with great features like the FM tuner, minimal profile change that keeps the aerodynamics and wind noise in check.Something that sold me on Schuberth helmets and the SRC system was the support system Schuberth has in place. If you are on the fence, read the website's mobility program and product support page.

Schuberth S2 Ghost Helmet The Schuberth S2 arrives after years of extensive engineering. The ultra-quiet S2 spent hundreds of hours in Schuberth's aero-acoustic wind tunnel to ensure optimum aerodynamics with reduced drag and lift for the quietest possible performance. Schuberth's industry-leading triple-matrix shell allows the Schuberth S2 to be significantly lighter while still providing outstanding ventilation and comfort. General Features Compact and lightweight Triple Matrix Shell Antibacterial, hypo-allergenic microfiber liner Extremely quiet 85db at 65 mph Integrated, drop-down sun visor Fog-free Pinlock dual lens system shield and lens included Patented Anti-Roll-Off-System (AROS) Integrated 31 inch FM antenna and Bluetooth receiver antenna greatly improves range and reception for the optional (sold separately) fully-integrated SRCS Bluetooth communication system 2 shell sizes Exceeds ECE and DOT standards 5 year warranty Shell Glass fiber is pressed at high temperature under high pressure and the addition of special resin in vacuum to a helmet shell with exceptionally high strength The helmet shell made of special EPS foam is designed to optimize the shock absorption properties EPS features optimized impact absorption properties by using a complex multi-density foam Interior COOLMAX interior, fully removable and washable Optimized seat shape Skeletonized for effective ventilation Allergen-free and Antibacterial Interchangeable comfort cheek pads and liner padding Micro-Lock ratchet strap Faceshield Pinlock faceshield ensures a condensation-free view City setting cracks the faceshield slightly Easy change visor mechanism allows for extremely fast and easy faceshield replacement Tool-less shield replacement AROS Anti-Roll-Off-System Specially developed by Schuberth, the AROS is a safety feature which, in case of an accident, ensures the chin strap is closed and properly adjusted. The helmet can not rotate off the head from behind Smaller tilt angle of contact between the chin of the helmet and the chin or neck of the rider The consequences of accidental contact with the chest of the helmet can be reduced Note Helmet ships with clear faceshield only.

Helmet is superior to the Shoei helmet it replaced, The quality of materials, the design, weight and noise control makes this helmet a step above its competitors. I immediately noticed the helmet was lighter when I put it on. The integrated neck roll felt comfortable, not confining. The included Pin Lock sheild works very well, no fogging at low temps (40 degrees in WI). While on the bike (BMW K1200s) there is little to no wind noise. Very well engineered. Wish I had bought a Schuberth sooner!
