I don't have personal experience with this unit, but the Cardo Packtalk Bold seems to be winning the Cardo/Sena dogfight i.t.o. performance - no idea if/what price differential.
When you talk, you only repeat what you already know - when you listen, you learn something new

The Wife and I use Cardo pack talk bold bike to bike and rider to pillion, the only issue we've come across and could be a set up issue/ finger trouble is that when were are connected to each other the phone based GPS announcements are very quiet even with all the individual volumes turned up in the Cardo app. With no communications connection the announcements are fine,
This may differ if connecting via the Tiger 900 bluetooth so can not comment on that particular setup.

Otherwise a great setup and ~8 hours battery life.

We have used Sena (20S) units for years issue free and reliable. I now also have a Sena SRL fitted into my Neotec 2 helmet and that also works flawlessly.
If you only want bike to rider and rider to pillion or rider to partner on another bike communications basically anything you buy today will work okay. Many of the newer models like for example the Cardo Packtalk have lists of features a mile long that you will never ever use but you will pay for.

I have a Sena 10S works great sounds great. I use ear buds with it though as they sound much better. You can also get a different mic kit for it to do away with the boom mic.

Cardo Freecom 4+, most of the Packtalk Bold functionality but cheaper...I'm loving mine.  JBL speakers.
Check out the Fortnine reviews of Cardo vs. Sena.

Hi,
Any chance of a bit more info on the different mic kit to do away with the boom mic

Cardo packtalk slim here, had it a few months. Voice activated phone calls, music /radio on off and I use the mobile for directions from google maps if I need them. The set fades the constant stream of Northern Soul feeding my ears out to receive a direction from maps then back in until the next turn. It has an option in the kit to use either boom or non boom microphone. Both work just fine. You will have to toggle the settings to get it to understand your commands a bit ( talk too loud or too soft and it will ignore you but get it set up to respond to the volume of your voice and its pretty much perfect ).
All day battery life for me but not used rider to passenger comms yet.
Love mine.

Interphone Avant for me and her, Pretty much the same spec as the cardo and you can get the stubby mic set for modular lids

I'm thinking of getting a Bluetooth headset to negate the need to stop and talk to my mates when touring mostly. A couple of them already have Sena devices so would I be better getting a sena to aid rider to rider communication or do all makes link up together just as easily anyway?
