Customer Reviews for Cardo Packtalk Slim JBL Bluetooth Intercom - Single

Better looking than performing

This is my second Pack Talk Slim. The first stopped suddenly after 3 years of frequent use, which appears to be due to the micro USB breaking inside the unit. Why buy another? Simply due to the design. I have a Shoei X-Spirit which it suits perfectly. Like other reviewers I found that the voice recognition is a little hit and miss but it does everything else well. I have had to accept that the connection port has a certain life span !

Awesome, sleek and does the job

I have fitted this to my Bell Star MIPS, it is sleek and sits well on my helmet. The JBL speakers are great, the sound quality is excellent. And the speakers fit perfectly in the sides of my helmet. Remember to feed the cable to the top of the helmet and not around the sides or back as this is the antenna for the radio and reception of signals. The voice feature works well, the buttons are fiddly with gloves. But using the voice commands... "Hey Cardo..." It takes the need to using the hands when going through the options when riding. Linking the slim pack to my Garmin Nav6, TFT dash and my mobile is very simple. The setting up of the Bluetooth and mesh is also very easy. It's waterproof and I've used it already in many heavy downpours. Overall, this is an excellent piece of kit, it feels substantial and well made, the battery that sits flat on the back of the helmet weighs next to nothing, and you don't even feel it on the back, and I chose this over the Sena ones as this is waterproof.

Fickle and no android connection

Firstly Cardo dmc only works with other Cardo units, and they don't like to connect to Sena on Bluetooth for some reason. Voice control is temperamental and must be set to English UK (not American). Range is excellent with dmc as is clarity, if you drop out of range it picks up as soon as within and with the correct setting has volume increase as you go faster, you must download the app to your phone for individual volume settings and better Bluetooth connections. I would advise you get a magnetic charging plug and USB lead as the socket is a known weak point. For the price I expected it to be better and easier to connect to and stay connected to non cardo units, if you only have an android tablet you won't be able to download updates needed to use these!

Really good intercom

Call quality is good, sound quality is good even with full akra system plus earplugs. The fit on my Shoei NXR is fantastic and the modular design spreads the weight on the unit nicely. Only gripe is the buttons lack feel.

It's awesome

Works very well. It has a lot of different functions so it takes some time to get used to. But once you know what you're doing with it, it's awesome. Clear speakers for intercom and playing music, voice commands worked well for me.

Very Best Intercom Available

My son has a Sena, but I wanted something less chunky plus waterproof and simple to use. This fits the bill. It sits really nice to my Shark and also to my Arai. The sound quality is far better than my sons Sena. The unit will pair with others, but best way to understand how is to pay a visit to youtube for clear instructions. Really easy to use with winter gloves. Yes you do need to charge it on the helmet. but for me that isn't issue, plus it can't be accidently knock off! Highly recommend this unit.

Expected higher quality based on other reviews.

Must admit I had expected better, did absolutely loads of research on this, between sena and cardo. The JBL speakers, cheaper price, and waterproof warranty swung it toward the cardo. Fitted and connected and there is notable fuzzy noise between changing tracks etc, haven't tested the coms aspect yet due to lockdown just a tad disappointed in the quality, the app is good but again speakers will distort when you crank them up to the max but this is pretty damn loud so I don't think think you'd have it that high normally.
