  • I had bought the original blue ant about an year ago, wasn t impressed by the quality, lot of pain pairing them for bike to bike and one stop working after 2 weeks…. won t buy that cheap gadget in a near future….

  • I looked also at BlueAnt last night . I wouldn't mind if the life was projected at 10 years, but when they said as short as two years depending on use, that was just too little for me. Having had many cell phone batteries go TU in the 2-3 year time frame, I'm not buying an intercom for that kind of money with a battery type with a 2-3 year lifespan and then have to throw out the entire unit. That is just insane in my opinion, but apparently enough people are buying them to keep the makers in business.

  • new scala g4 looks awesome
    they've given ti A2DP which is fortunate cos that was missing in the q2

    cant wait to get my hands on one!

  • I have had the original blueant interphone for 3 years and it has always worked fine. I get about 4 hours talk time from a full charge. I can't hear very well over about 60 mph, but under that it's great. My wife even slid hers on the pavement and we covered it with black duct tape (what else?) and it still works fine.
