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:

    More wind noise than other helmets I have owned, but it is not too bad. Music and calls sound great, even at highway speeds. The person on the other end can hear you clearly and barely hears the wind. The flip down sun shade is great also.

          Comments about Techno Bluetooth Full-Face Motorcycle Helmet:

          This helmet is easy to use and pair with your phone but it is a bear to get on. I usually get a large helmet but had to get an XL and it was still tough to get on. It fit nicely once I got it on but it hurts my ears to get it on my head. This helmet does fog easily and the front shield is difficult to move up and down. The controls for the vents are small and hard to manipulate. The bluetooth is adequate but while riding the wind noise makes talking to someone on the phone very difficult. For the price I paid it was not bad but I am considering returning it because it is just too hard to get on my head.

          Best Uses

            Comments about Techno Bluetooth Full-Face Motorcycle Helmet:

            wind turbulence creates resonance that results in discomfort. (surface vents, spoilers, etc., not 'slippery.') Novice riders could experience noise-based confusion.

            Good helmet, proper price, nothing wrong with it for riders who use ear-plugs.

            • GPS
            • MP3 Player
            • Phone
            • Sun shield

            Comments about Techno Bluetooth Full-Face Motorcycle Helmet:

            Great for phone use also the GPS function comes in handy when traveling to unknown places. Like that I don't have to always wear my shades the sun shield works and looks great. I feel like a fighter pilot when I'm on my bike. Not much negative things to say about it. It's not mind blowing bass coming thru the speakers but its nice good sound. When riding fast you have a lot of wind noise nothing ducking behind your wind shield won't fix. Awesome buy, my first expensive helmet well worth the money. I don't ride without mines on!!!

                  This helmet runs very small in my opinion. I wear 2xl oneal dirt bike helmet and a 2xl HJC street helmet. I ordered a 2xl for this blue tooth helmet and it fits way to tight!!! So tight that i almost think that the size of the helmet is marked incorrectly. I almost couldnt get back off my head after wearing it for 3 minutes. My 13 year old son had a hard time putting it on and taking it off.
                  I really wish this fit because i love this helmet with all of its features.
