Improve Your Audio Experience

Cardo makes some of the best communication systems for motorcyclists. We’ve discussed and reviewed the company’s products in the past. Recently, the company reached out to us to let us know that it opened preorders for the new 45mm Audio Set.

Cardo and JBL teamed up to produce what the companies call “the highest quality audio experience for motorcyclists.” We’ll have to test that before we can believe that claim, but JBL’s quality is well-known and with Cardo’s communication systems being what they are, we wouldn’t be surprised if the 45mm Audio Set was legitimately a high-quality piece of technology.

The set will work with Packtalk and Freecom systems. It provides users of those products with JBL’s cutting edge Sound Processing and Equalizer Sound Profile technologies. The sound processing part of the technology helps make the sound appropriate for the 45mm setup. The equalizer sound profile tech lets you customize the audio settings.

You get three different sound profile settings: standard, bass boost, and vocal. It’s pretty obvious what each does from the names. If you want to be among the first riders with the new JBL audio set, you can head over to Cardo’s website and take advantage of the preorder availability.

    Are these JBL speakers really $90 better than the stock speakers from last year? I guess that I’ll just wait for the review and the street price once Cardo starts shipping to retail stores.

    I recently installed these new 45mm speakers in our Packtalk and the sound is worse. I can just barely hear any intercom voice out of them from my wife’s Scala from her bike. Is there something wrong with these? Do I need to do something with the settings? So far, an extremely disappointed customer.

    Michael, not sure if you read our specific review of the Cardo 45mm JBL Audio Kit that was a companion piece to the Cardo Packtalk BOLD review done in Jan 20, but the companion piece provides a model compatibility listing and as importantly, the setup and activation required. So if your sound is ‘worse’ including intercom audio I’m wondering if the headsets in use are indeed compatible and if so, if the speaker kits have been set-up as required using the Cardo Connect App – the QR Code on the included information card needs to be scanned for activation which then makes the JBL Audio Profiles settings under the Cardo Connect App available for use. Let us know if you get the speakers working better. Cheers, Bruce
