    does it have speakers in the earpieces or something? That would be badass with a smartphone; music, phone calls, etc.

    yeah, built in speakers. Would be nice for mostly music, and if I can get anyone else I ride with to buy one you can also communicate between them.

    doesnt really seem worth it for 600. also doesnt look like very good ventilation. ive got a scorpion that i like for only 300. seems like a better buy and just get some headphones. but thats me.

    Bluetooth has a range of like 30 feet. It's good for use with bluetooth phones and for talking to a passenger, but forget about talking to other riders unless you're sitting at a stoplight.

    Dainese stuff is overpriced and way overrated IMO, no way I'd pick one up @ 600 a pop.

    Pricey yeah but not really any more so then the high end models of most other companies. I've had one of their helmets before and a couple pair of gloves, quality on both was pretty good. Gloves lasted a lot longer then other brands I've owned. I'm waiting to find out what the shields run for this one have a feeling they're going to be expensive seems they have to be specially ordered, if they're $100+ I'm just going to get another Shark.

    or you can get a bluetooth headset and attach it to any helmet.

    No way my current one would be comfortable inside a helmet, I'd end up spending $80-100 on a new one that still might be uncomfortable. Its not something I need to have I'll pay a little extra for a helmet with the feature but if I get the shark I can live with out BT.

    $600 is about as expensive as you get for a helmet, only the carbon Vemar and a couple of Sumomys cost more.

    I had a Dainese suit and couldn't stand it. I sold it and bought a kangaroo Teknic for cheap and it's so much more comfortable and I think will hold up better in a crash too.

    You just want to listen to music? Might I suggest these:

    Don't let the price fool you--they sell for <$100. They isolate damn near as well as a set of earplugs, and the sound quality is pretty badass. I wear them pretty much every time I ride.
