Added Bluetooth to the lid

So the wife and kids got me the Cardo Q-solo for fathers day. It arrived yesterday and I installed it last night. While it may not be an S30 after one commute I'm loving it! It's so nice to have a little music during a ride and I love being able to use the google assistant to dial the phone ect. I also like that the unit is "waterproof". Down the road if I find a gang to ride with I may upgrade but given that 97% of my rides are solo this is a good affordable option.

I've been thinking hard about adding a BT unit of some sort, so the girlfriend and I can chat, while on the bike. I've been curious as to how well you can actually hear the speakers in the helmet, considering the wind noise.

I got a Sena SMH10 two unit kit for Christmas three years ago to be able to communicate with my then 12-year old son as passenger. We LOVE it!! There is plenty of audio power to overcome any wind noise. I use earplugs and can still hear my music just fine. I love being able to use Siri to read texts and dictate responses on the fly. Battery life is Excellent at over 16 hours.

The kit was a little pricey but is well worth the investment.

I installed the SENA 20S EVO, but the stock speakers are trash...

Ordered and waiting for the Iasus XSound 3 Speakers to come in as a direct replacement...

Here is a good video that shows the difference in sound quality - fast forward to 5:00 🙂

I've wanted a good set of High Def speakers for my helmet to replace the stock speakers that came with the 20S.

Thanks for the Tube link review. I'm definitely putting these at the top of the list!
