This BT2-D was exactly what I was looking for and more! My main goal was to be able to talk on the cell phone or intercom when I need to and not to have it be a risky event. I have a Goldwing that has built in radio and intercom but I would have to spend over $300 for cell phone integration but I would still have to be tethered to the bike's wired system to use it. For less $ than that, I got a piece of technology that doesn't tether me to the bike or shut off when I shut off the bike and walk into the house while I finish up the song I was listening to. I will also use it for snowmobiling this winter.

The BT2 provides me with great integration with my Blackberry 9630 Tour. Answering and making cell calls are flawless with voice commands. It's amazing actually how well it works. The Bluetooth reliably connects every time I turn the BT2 on. If I have the phone's media player active (playing or on pause), it will begin playing the music immediately after connecting. Voice quality is awesome on both ends for cell calls and the intercom. The person on the other end of the cell call doesn't even know I am on a motorcycle doing 60mph. Streaming audio is also really good. When playing music from the phone, it's best to keep the volume on the BT2 on one setting and use the phone's up/down volume. There is great flexibility with the small but very good sounding speakers (of course don't expect tons of low end). The sound is better the closer the speaker units are to your ears. The units can get really loud. If you wear earplugs while riding, you will be able to hear the BT2 just fine. It was easy to install as Velcro is on the back of the speakers and boom-mic mounting areas. I thought wearing gloves would be a problem trying to hit the buttons while riding. With the lighter gloves I've been wearing it has not been a problem.

I haven't pushed the battery life too much to test claims of the 8 hours talk-time. I have ran them for 2 hours with no problems. As far as the distance range of the bike to bike feature, I get about 90-100 yards max with no obstacles between the units. That's good enough for my needs. The literature boasts a maximum range of 220 yards.

The only downside for me is the short pop/click sound it makes when switching the unit on/off, changing inputs or intercom, turning its volume up or down, changing songs, or when it goes from music to phone and back. The pop/click occurs just before the normal confirmation tones it is supposed to make. The pop/click is normal as confirmed with Midland. Not a big deal considering the other benefits of the unit. Also note that the AGC (supposed to turn the volume louder as the outside environment gets louder) only seems to work on the wired input and not the Bluetooth connected devices. To change the volume on the wired connection with the connected device you must use the connected device...not the BT2. No biggie, just use the phone's volume buttons or if on a call, reach up and push the appropriate BT2 volume buttons.

The product works as designed.... ONCE YOU CAN GET IT TO WORK!!! I followed the directions as written in the VERY minimal directions. My phone appeared to pair, yet I got nothing from the head set. I called the company. They seemed very confused, and wanted me to mail it back to Amazon. Then amazon was to basically send it to them for warranty service... ARE YOU KIDDING ME!!! Out of desperation, my tech side kicked in. I did a hard shut down on my phone. Then, once I turned the phone back on BOOM! everything worked! I am sure i am not the only customer who has experienced this glitch. It seems that the company would hire more knowledgable people in their customer service department.

Well I not sure I can recommend this product at this point. I emailed Midland to ask if they had a list of Garmin GPS that would work with the BT2. That was over a moth ago and no response. I have since bought a Samsung P2 mp3 player with Bluetooth so I could connect it to my BT2 but it wont connect so once again I went to the web site and clicked on the contact us link and fill in all the info asking what could be wrong and I have gotten no response to this question either. It will hook to my phone via the Bluetooth and the driver to passenger seems to work. I wish it worked like they promote but it just doesn't seem to and with no support I can't really recommend spending your hard earned money on it.

I have had this for a couple of months now and i am fully impressed. the call quality is top notch, most people cant even tell im on a bluetooth headset let alone on a motorcycle without a windscreen. the unit has a powerful speaker unlike my last one (motorola hs830) so you can hear even at speed. my only gripe is that the walkie-talkie cable is so expensive

I purchased these so my wife and I could talk bike to bike. They are great! We leave it in open all the time.They lasted at least 8 hours that way. It is very nice being able to talk to each other. We can give warnings or tell each other to look at something.Now that our riding season is over I will work on the voice activated part. There is a little static noise in your ear when you leave them open to talk.It really is not that bad. The distance is about 2 blocks if in the line of sight.But if you are riding together you're not going to get too far apart anyway.

Had these for a year now, two still work but the intercom is not that good, and not very much range. More than a couple of 100 feet and it breaks up. I bought three and one never worked straight out of the box. It would receive but would not transmit. Midland wants 75.00 to replace a product that is supposed to be under a two year warranty. Definitely not worth the money.

I have been looking for a long time for a bluetooth motorcycle intercom that would work as an intercom with my rider as well as work with my blackberry cellphone. I have had ones that would be either/or but not at the same time. This one does that. Has very long battery life. Good product.

Received this as a gift. VOX would not work on Driver's unit. Dealer replaced unit. VOX feature would would work intermittently and Then the driver's unit stopped working completely. Have been trying to get unit replaced under warranty without success. A complete waste of a lot of money. Would prefer a "wired" unit.

I had ordered four units whth plans on ordering more if they worked as advertised. I was hopefull for a system with a wireless intercom. It's just not the one. Idea was great, but the system just didn't live up to expectations.
*Simple to install.
*Good instructions.
*Opearational buttons to small and hard to operate for confort but I could have lived with that.
*Clip that holds the radio on was weak. Worked around that also.
*Volume was just to low even after I had move the ear speekers closer to my ears and turned the volume control up all the way.
*Broken conversation when you got up to speeds above 40mph. Even in full face helmet. Closed shield.
*Could have lived with out the blue tooth phone and it worked fine untill you started moving.
I hopped I was doing something wrong because I wanted the system to work.
I emailed Midland for Tec.Services. Didn't get a responce back for days.
I had to send them back before my 30 days ran out. Not the product as adviertised for Motorcycle use. Markeded the product to soon, not enought testing.

The units are complete and well made. The instructions are good.
We had no problems installing and using the units in our 3/4 coverage helmets with face shields.
Communications are good when when riding 2-up until speeds in excess of 50 MPH are reached.
Then wind noise precludes conversations. A larger windshield and/or full coverage helmets might improve high-speed communications.
Distance communications seem limited to less than 100 ft, but we haven't practiced that very much.

Based on the quality and performance, I would buy this product again.
Based on the excellant low price and fast delivery, I would buy from this vendor again.
