    it happened to me too.

    I purchased a Scala Rider and I noticed that the mic wouldn't work. so I had it replaced under warranty and the new unit has the same proble.. Am I doing something wrong? I Installed the bluetooth, I can ear directions from my GPS in the helmet but if I make a phone call I can't hear the other person speaking, while the others can ear me.

    what can I do?

It is the microphone, this happened to me. I was inquisitive and out of warranty so had nothing to lose. Fix using these steps:

1. Remove foam microphone cover
2. Slide ring collar back down the boom
3. Split open the plastic microphone unit
4. Solder any loose wires - black to the rim, white to the middle of the microphone
5. Reverse steps above to put back together

Before you go slicing thing open, check this. Remove the whole headset/mic assembly by undoing the retainer allen screw. You'll find it plugs into the cradle section with a single gold plated 3.5mm aux connector. Just like the socket on an iPod / iPhone. Look at the male connector. Chances are you may see crusty green corrosion deposits on the gold plating. I simply wiped mine vigorously with a microfiber cloth and reassembled. Good as new!

Obviously some rain / moisture had got in there over the winter. As a daily commuter it's hard to keep it out.

You phoned microphone needs to be replaced. The speaker and Mic are two different components and works independently as well. IF people on the receiving end cant hear you, then your microphone is not fuctioning. Take it ti yiur dealer if it is still under warrantee or a reputable repair shop to replace the microphone

Firs of all I like to remind you the model that you have doesn't come with integrated microphone. However It will work any standard PC microphone that you can obtain around few dollars or less from IT stores. All you need to plug the microphone to the right side second socket socket as illustrated below


If issue persist please post further I will provide assistance accordingly

Good Luck

Microphone problem

If the speaker icon is in your system tray (next to your clock), then you can right click on it, then "Open Volume Control" and make sure your Microphone volume is up and that the mute (under microphone) check box is unchecked. If the icon is not there, you will have to check the box to show it in Control Panel > sounds and audio devices... You may have to go to options, then click on advanced controls to adjust the mic..
If that doesn't do it? You could update your audio driver.
Good luck.

Cant talk

Try going to Control Panel -> Sounds and Audio Devices Click on Voice Tab and make sure the proper device is selected. Click on Volume and make sure levels are appropriate. Lastly, click on Test Hardware and wait until you can speak into the mic to see the voice levels. If you can see the voice levels, then your mic probably works and it is just an issue of configing the COD settings. goodl luck
