    I'm very happy with the C4 because of the comfortable fit.
    Fit will be different for everyone.

    I like how the SC1A is built into the helmet without anything stuck to the outside.
    At first the volume was too low for both of us, but this was fixed by changing the firmware back to the original 1.0.
    One problem we still have is the intercom will disconnect on long rides.
    When this happens we can not reconnect useless we shut off the SC1A, turn back on, then connect.

    Talked to Schuberth on Wednesday and they want to test the helmets and SC1A units.
    They sent me a shipping label and I will mail them when I find a large enough box.

    It's winter so we don't need them now.

    The Tech told me Schuberth has a new SC2 intercom but it will not be available in the States until spring.
    Same delivery estimate for the C4 Pro.

    If someone buys a C4 now I would be temped to wait for the new SC2 intercom.
    The SC2 is supposed to fit the C4.

    Info

    Thanks for info Lee it’s obvious something is wrong with comn system for the C4 so can wait longer for that, but $350 to $400 for the C4 I have to make up my mind which one I want before they are cleared out. I don’t know if they are the best helmets out their but when people argue what’s best they are in the mix. I don’t think there’s a better $350 to $400 helmet at this point in time IMHO.

    The difference between C4 and C4PRO is C4PRO is carbon fiber she'll so it is lighter. For quiet/noise it is almost equivalent with cheap Zox Nevado helmet, the problem I had with my helmet were: chin piece (vent tab) rattles when open, fell off on 4 days ride trip, chin padding thread separated and foam started to come out.
    SC1 and SC1A is A is capable of sharing music with your pillion, the problem I had with are, battery compartment was lose so everytime you tap the helmet the com would shut off, the com socket is also did not assembled properly, the contact also lose.
    There are few ways to pair the com, phone, NAV and bike I found, the first 2 worked well until I tried the 3 way and within a week or 2 it dies or internally shorted while on a trip.
    The bad and the ugly is poor quality control, unable to share music with other Sena may be with another SC1A, the best is the high price of both products and phone call now is a lot better, no statics like 20S.

    Just my opinion and 8 months of use, now I have to justify to misses for acquiring Shoei NeotecII with SRL.

    My link in post #14 shows there's a C4 Pro Carbon and a regular C4 Pro.
