The Good: Helmet fits great and is not overly heavy (though it's not light). It get's a ton of airflow and is pretty cool in hot summer weather. The internal sunshade is great and prevents me from having to carry a second shield. Integrated bluetooth pairs easily and the controls make sense
The Bad: The main reason I picked this helmet up was for the integrated bluetooth, in that regard it fails. The sound quality is awful. Incredibly tinny, listening to music through these speakers is completely impossible. Voice is tolerable but nothing to write home about. The mic sounds terrible on the other end, and is not clear enough for voice activated dialing, my phone consistently call the wrong person through the helmet mic, but works just fine through any other bluetooth mic.
Overall I'm lukewarm, I use this helmet daily for my work commute and it hot weather it's great. The construction is not up to speed with my primary helmet (Arai Q2), no comparison really, but it will do. As stated above, the bluetooth is unusable for me, due to the mic and speakers. It's a shame because the actual system and controls are fantastic.
