Opinions on CAN helmets

I was looking around for a bluetooth helmet and I came across the CAN bluethooth helmet. For example:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/190466264195...84.m1423.l2649

The price is nice, but I am leary of the "you get what you pay for" aspect. Does anyone use or have used this helmet, or any of the CAN bluetooth helmets?

I would take the gloss black rather than the matte black. Bad experience with matte paint as after a few years, it turns sticky like melted rubber.

Can't help if this is a good quality product.

I have a friend who uses one with his Hayabusa. Reports useless above 60.
But then again its a hayabusa. You can cet the Blinc M1 bluetooth for about 100 at amazon.

Id look at the warrenty and see what they offer. Bluetooth is great but if you ride in the rain they tend to have a high failure rate. As far as how good the safety factor of this lid just dont know. Id research.

IMO you would be better off getting a helmet that fits your head well and vents like you want it to. Once you have the helmet fit it with one of the many bluetooth kits available. The all in one helmets I've seen have been kind of shoddy in quality. Both the helmet and included electronics were of inferior quality. CAN is not exactly a brand name helmet.
