So what exactly do you get for the extra $50? Well, there’s the obvious special edition styling, which gets rid of the silver portion on the front of the unit. The Packtalk Black comes standard with the 45mm JBL speakers that have previously only been available optionally on Cardo’s website—compared to the 40mm speakers that come standard in the Packtalk Bold, Slim, and Freecom 4+, though all of them come with the updated JBL Sound software. These promise to be both louder and more clear at speed. The Bold’s two-year warranty is extended to three years for the Black, as well.
