I'm restricting this review to the music function as the last place I want to have a cell phone conversation - or be interrupted in general - is when I'm riding!!!
Installation and pairing were a complete snap. The large exterior dial is pretty easy to operate with gloves. I have had to adjust my own finger sensitivity as initially I was pressing vs. turning but I hope to quickly develop the muscle memory.
The sound quality is more than adequate for my full face Qwest helmet. I had battled with a Boosteroo, hard wires and my iPod for a while and got nothing but frustration in return. Once I moved to the Sena, my riding enjoyment blossomed!
While I'm ignoring or postponing my use as an intercom, it's nice to know that the capability is there, and can be used in conjunction with other riders with competing brands.
**UPDATE**
I'm docking 1 star for the sensitivity of the button. Even with Summer gloves, it's a little too tactile-y subtle. Too often when I adjust the volume or forward a track, I trigger the intercom which stops the music, pauses and prompts "Intercom failed. Try again later." More nuisance than anything, but still...
I'd love to see some type of A/B switch - or A/B/Both - to partition the functionality of the intercom v. music/GPS. I may be in the minority for that, but it'd be nice IMHO.
Still, a darned decent product!
