suggestions for a good blue tooth set up?

I just bought a chatter box xbi2h but I can barely hear the audio, both music and talking on the phone, so I turn it up the sound quality is still low and sucks with lots of vibration.
Can anyone suggest a good bluetooth set up that is reasonable in price. I just bought a hjc modular helmet also
thanks so much

Have a look here
Bluetooth Intercoms - webBikeWorld

I have a sena SMH10 and have been happy with it for phone/music.
I should mention I use it with earbuds and not with the speakers.

The earbud option on the SMH10 is the one reason if I had to do it all over again I'd 100% get the Sena.

I've got a set of Cardo G4s and they work but not great. Granted I just updated with the latest firmware so my opinion may change (my set had never had a firmware upgrade).
Audio quality is ok at lower speeds but bad as you approach anything near highway speed. The VOX is also really hit or miss if it works, firmware may correct this though. The helmet speakers are pretty lame but I'd suspect most are which is why the Sena with the earbud option is so appealing.

I've the G4 set as well and mine works really well. It connects to my Motorola cel fine, FM radio signals come in fine when I'm within probably 30km of the city centre but not great beyond that into the rural areas and I've connected to two other riders with no problem at all. I keep my little antennae up full time, (not sure whether it makes a difference or not), and I do use the bluetooth every time I ride. At the very least it's great to have the phone when I ride. In my EXO900, most people I've spoken to on the phone don't even realize I'm on the bike.

Not the cheapest set on the market but I do believe you get what you pay for.

They will work just fine, it's a standard 3.5mm jack. I'm a Sena believer also.
