The C4 pro has built in the microphone and speakers.
The C4 basic hasn’t.

I believe the "original" C4 had some flaws.
The C4 Pro is a revision with improvements and another headshape than the C4.

This is from the louis.de website regarding the C4 (not the C4 basic or C4 Pro)

•Other features: includes chin curtain. Invisible microphone and integral speakers are pre-installed. Helmet is ready for SCHUBERTH SC1 communication system

I have the Shoei Neotec 2, great helmet, comfy, functional and looks great IMO. The dedicated Sena  Comm System (purchased separately) fits really well and is completely integrated into the helmet. External controls are easy to operate with gloves.

The sound is good and with the sound boost I can hear music & phone with earplugs. Bluetooth link with my iPhone is solid. Voice commands are ok, although I sometimes have to repeat commands. Siri commands also work.

The phone call quality is very good, many have commented that they would never have known I was on the bike. Bluetooth music works well. Not used bike to bike comms.

The radio is pretty crap, needs a better aerial, can only get a couple of channels with decent clarity so is pretty pointless.

Expensive bit a kit when bought together. I think the underlying electronics are a little dated (Older tech) but works well enough for me.

Got myself a Cardo Packtalk Bold JBL, bought together with a friend the duo set witch saved us both about €45.
Next week i will go for a new helmet so i will not build it in yet.
Was done with the limitations from the N-com B1 kit and the newer models still don't have DMC so time for something else.

Just took delivery today of the Sena SRL2 kit to go in my Gt-Air II.........I have never used comms before on my bike, so I have to admit I'm a little anxious!

I’m interested in your experience using this combo.  I’m considering upgrading my older Shoei helmet to this model and I’ve never had comms before either.
