It depends entirely on your budget.
I bought a cheap pair for 70 and I am happy with them. A bit limited in functions but it does what I want it to. I've had them for about 4 years. Not really sure of the make but they're the cheapest one's on ebay.

I have two pairs of the ones Aldi sold. On bought at 40 and the other at 27.99 when they reduced them. They are absolutely brilliant. I use them for making calls, listening to music, getting satnav instruction and also as biker to pillion Comms. Fantastic for the money!! Charge lasts a good 8 hours constant. Well impressed

It links with the Aldi one no problem.

I have had a pair like that for about 4 years. Work just fine with my phone, sat nav and pillion.

Limited range and number of pairings (2 x other units)

Not supposed to be waterproof (??? - on a bike - ??) but mine have been soaked several times and all is good.

A pal has a set from Interphone which do everything (complicated) and he loves them - but they are mega

A problem occurs when I try to pair with his set - only one of the duplex channels works so only one person can talk to the other. I suspect that is my set being limited in functions but if you only want rider/rider or rider/pillion with sat nav and phone the ones suggested are great for the money
If money can't buy happiness - explain motorbikes and beer.

 Bought two of the Aldi ones at 29.99 each.
Work pretty well up to about 80mph, reasonably clear. Links easily to my Garmin SatNav. When set to a permanently open conversation mode, mine lasts about 6hrs, wife's about an hour less, which was annoying. The SatNav instructions override normal comms. Connected to my phone easily, an old Samsung S3, but never actually tried using it on the move. The clip onto the helmet isn't exactly solid on mine, never fell off but have moved it, and knocked it off when removing my hat. Wiring not more painful than an Autocom I used previously, but the earpieces seemed awkward to fit in my Arai, not so in the wife's HJC. Boom mic took some sorting positioning wise but again no more so than the Autocom. For the money I can't really fault it, if you've never used an intercom before, they are a revelation. Got my first after 25 years riding, could believe how much being able to 'chat sh!t' changed the experience.  :thumb:

Got mine off the 'Bay were cheap and offer good quality audio and functionality..good range and battery time...I would hazard a guess that the innards are much the same on most of this gear. I don't see the point of paying 00's for this stuff. The weakness for me has been the helmet attachment, two have broken so far. Mine are the V6 type like this:

What's the problem with them ?   The search for a set of these type things with good volume seems impossible !

They don't connect to pillion half the time if there's two of you out and one just gets out of view they lose connection but they are supposed to be good for a mile. Would not buy another set 😟

Ride magazine recommended Interphone Urban or Bikecomm Aloha...

I have Scala Rider G4s - had them near 10 years now. They were really good though recently have been dropping connection with my brother's. We should probably re-pair them to see if it helps.

The cheapo intercoms I bought years back were Bikecomm units. They were most impressive for the money. I now have the Sena 20S and am completely happy with it...which is fortunate because they cost a bloody fortune.
