I have had several Bluetooth/Intercom helmets over the years and this one is by far the best...and not just for the Bluetooth.

The helmet itself, though relatively inexpensive, is quite good. Ventilation on 90-degree days is deceptively good considering the vent sizes and on cooler days visor fogging is non-existent with the vents open. Buy it a bit small. After a few hours of riding it will conform. The lining is of a smooth woven fabric (rather than the felt-like liners of other helmets in this price range) and allows you to smoothly slide the helmet on and off. The fabric seems durable. After a couple of thousand miles of riding with the helmet, there is no perceptible wear.

Really surprised at how well the inner drop-down sun visor works. It has totally eliminated my need to wear sunglasses while riding and it completely covers your field of view. The main outer shield has two very distinct detent positions and stays put when partially open. It seals very well around its perimeter in wet weather.

The knob on the Bluetooth seems a bit "shaky" and I suspect an overzealous twist with heavy gloves might damage it. However, its use is excellent even with heavy gloves to reject calls, mute, change volume, or advance through music...just don't give it a hard twist and you'll be fine. Also, it can auto-answer your phone after two rings. Sound quality is average-to-good. I listen to music almost 100% of the time I have the helmet on. And unlike every other Bluetooth I have owned, you CAN crank the volume past the point of being painful...and without distortion. Also, I was surprised the first few times I received phone calls that the phone volume actually significantly higher than the music volume. The microphone is of a flexible "boom" type...a bit odd for a full-coverage helmet. It seemed to "be in the way" the first few times I took then helmet on and off. After I pushed the microphone down as far as it would go, no more problems...you don't need it directly in front of your mouth for quality phoning. There is no problem at all carrying on conversations at 70 mph. Though I do hear a moderate level of wind noise, folks I am talking to say they hear no wind noise at all and are surprised I am speaking from a moving motorcycle.

Battery life is also outstanding. I have ridden 8 or more hours with music going at high volume with a few phone calls thrown in and haven't encountered a dead battery yet. Plus it charges with a standard cell-phone USB cable. BTW, the included wall-charger comes with said cable which can be removed and used off your laptop or an on-dash USB charger.

The chin strap could be a bit longer (personal preference) though it is really not "too short". The small fabric tab that is put on one D-ring frayed after just a few uses (don't need it anyway). The snap to secure the free end of the strap is located a bit too high up under the edge of the helmet.

I bought this helmet about a month and a half ago and started wearing it about two weeks ago. I was very disappointed. The helmet has so much wind coming into it from all directions i got debris in my eyes. Not only that once you go past 20mph you have to turn the speakers up in order to hear anything from the wind, causing the speakers to show their weakness and they sound terrible. however from my callers they say the mic works well. For the amount of money i paid i could have saved up another 100$ and gotten a way better helmet. I would no recommend this to anyone. Its flaws well out weight the cost.

Comments about Techno Bluetooth Full-Face Motorcycle Helmet:

I have always worn novelty helmets and never really liked the look of a full face. I bought this one because it was a really good price, and I was curious to see what everyone was talking about with a full face helmet. I can tell you it took a few days maybe even a few weeks to get used to having limited view. But once you get used to it, you get past that, I told every one I ride with that I would never go back to a novelty helmet or even a half helmet, the fit was perfect once you broke in the padding, the sound quality is good for any type of music from hardcore screaming to music with bass. The call quality is better than my car; the only thing I don't like is the volume control. if you turn it up or down it sometime changes the song, and with it being a full-face helmet I thought it would eliminate most of the wind noise, (at times it sounds as if I have a half helmet on) I have heard you can use the hands free mode (android) from the Bluetooth control box but I haven't tried yet. Other than that I would recommend this helmet to everyone.

        Coming from someone who normally doesn't wear a helmet, this thing is leaps and bounds better than I thought it would be. Slight fog issues but its 90* and 80 ish % humidity here in SC.

          Comments about Techno Bluetooth Full-Face Motorcycle Helmet:

          This helmet gets used and abused every time I get a chance to go out riding. It is loaded with tons of extra features that many higher end helmets lack. Functionality and ease of use are always a win win for me, the only two things I dislike about this helmet are the small hard to reach on button on the bluetooth controls and not being able to turn my head in any direction without feeling a little wind resistance at the chin. Some people complain about wind noise but in my experience you'll get it just about every time you're on a bike, but I must add that wind noise does not interfere with phone calls one bit. I've received phone calls at highway speeds and people don't even know I'm on a motorcycle, I find this hilarious. All sounds coming from speakers are also very audible.
