Viper Helmet seems too good to be true

Anyone actually use the flip-up model? How is the noise with your windshield down? How is the audio out of the built in speakers? Does the bluetooth work as advertised?

From an ad:

The Viper Bluetooth range consists of two fully factory fitted Bluetooth ready helmets, the Blue 1 and the Blue 2. Both come with dual-speakers, microphone, charger and rechargeable battery. The RS-V121 is a flip-up helmet and the RS-V99 is a full face Racing Helmet.

Blue 2 Version - functions like a Bluetooth headset. This system will connect to most modern Bluetooth phones, compatible GPS devices and other devices that will function in headset profile via Bluetooth. The system will stream music from devices using A2DP protocol.

Additionally the Blue 2 will allow intercom communication between 2 x Blue 2 enabled helmets. You can talk on intercom, and at a press of a button switch the connection to another Bluetooth device (phone/gps etc)

The Blue 2 system is ideal for the rider that requires all the functions of the Blue1 and who wishes to connect helmet-helmet via intercom.

Plus! The Viper RS-V121 Blue 2 is a fip up helmet with a Integrated retractable Sun visor with ACU Gold approval.
