Pack talk slim

New to helmet comm. I’ve been looking at the Cardo Pack talk slim. I see they have a newer version with JBL speakers is it worth the extra $$ for the JBL’s rather than the original version? Are there other better options I should look at?

The basic 40mm Packtalk sounds like a CD compared to scratchy tinny Sena 20S I had previously.

Seems like the JBL’s are close to $100 more than the standard version just wondering if it’s worth the $$

I’ve been running the scala upgrade speakers for a few years now(i think they’re 40 or 42mm) with smartpack and Q3 before that, and they were good, however recently I bought the JBL speakers, and they are a noticeable improvement. Not only more volume(which makes a big difference with ear plugs) maybe 20-25% but the sound is noticeably richer. They’re a bit pricey at $89USD but to me they’re worth it. I would recommend the upgrade.

The price difference is currently $33 on Revzilla for a single unit and about twice that difference for the dual pack. I cheaped out and didn't go the JBL route. I was looking more for rider to rider comms than listening to music which I'm doubtful would exploit the additional frequency range of the JBL's. If quality music is what your after, then the JBL's would certainly be the better choice. I don't think the lows are that great with the standard speakers but that's what get's lost at speed anyway IMO. The JBL's can be purchased separately but for another $90...ouch!
