I have not had that experience so far....But what impressed me most was the dealer I bought it from...CaliforniaSportTouing. They're the largest dealer of Starcom products in the US and I can attest to the fact that the tech support/customer service has been phenomenal!
i'm surpirsed that the noise cancelling tech is not being integrated. i have a cheap pair of noise cancelling headphones i use on flights and i can't even hear the plane........i'll probably never buy one due to the noise- i think in the few weeks i have worn it i have done more damage to my ears ( even with plugs ) than the last few years put together. ...
i agree on the autocom....so far in this thread all I've read is "most advanced technology"
I really want to hear about performance , like bike to bike at highway speed.....
-Cardo Scala Rider has 3 different bluetooth headsets, including the teamsetwith the bluetooth there are no wires. imagine putting on your helmet and immediately getting intercom connection with your passenger and hearing your bluetooth-enabled GPX/XM radio (like zumo 550). all with no wires attaching your helmet to the bike.
i suspect there will be some teething problems initially. i'm also a bit concerned about battery life for the bluetooth modules. so i'm going to wait a bit before buying. but if the system delivers as promised it will be a revelation, IMHO. more here:
my experience was excellent!Wow, was I ever wrong! There was some "confusion" initially, but what they've done to correct it blows me away. SPECTACULAR customer service!
by top end i assume the out went with the autocom? that seems to be the best bet for me... but wanted an opinion about sound quality..... I returned the Motocomm and went to the top end. Very satisfied with sound quality in both the mp3 and FRS/GRMS communication. So far up to 90 mph and clear as a bell! Great product, great customer service!
Is typically based on what one owns. Confident that one's money was well spent.by top end i assume the out went with the autocom? that seems to be the best bet for me... but wanted an opinion about sound quality.
also, thanks to all for the tip on the boom mike, i never would've thot of that but will be going that route.
i hope to actually see an autocom before i buy, but the nearest dealer is an hour away... the construction of the box and connector types are of concern.Is typically based on what one owns. Confident that one's money was well spent.
In my case, I looked at what was important to me, product quality, service and customer service. In conversations with both manufactures I believe the Starcom product is of a more durable construction, alloy over plastic and technology (military grade). The true kicker was the dealer.
I am sure the Autocom is a top quality product, I simply chose differently based on my needs.
