Bell Mag-9 Sena SMH-10 Bluetooth Headset
Great buy... No Bass...
I bought this headset to go along with my new BELL DLX helmet. The shipping was fast. Got it within 2 days of purchasing. I didn't have to to buy anything else to attach it to my helmet. Everything came in the kit. Installation took about... 5-10 minutes.. Very easy to install... I took these out immediately after it was charged and I was a little worried I wouldn't be able to hear it since my bike is extremely loud. 2006 600rr with a two brothers exhaust. I rode around and was pleasantly surprised. I could hear my music very clearly and it sounded great aside from the fact that u dont get any bass at all... But honestly thats totally fine with me. I connected this headset to my phone and with a simple button press it connects me to google now and I can ask what time it is or ask to navigate me somewhere. The voice recognition is spot in and the controls are easy to understand. A++ would def recommend this!

Not different from any other Sena product.
The controls aren't intuitive, every spring I have to pull out the manual to figure it out again. the mic boom isn't long enough so even with the windshield on my full dress bike there are problems if I'm not talking full volume.

I'm happy with it.
Helmet: Bell Qualifier DLX Ride: 2015 HD Street Bob no windshield/fairing.
I have been pleasantly surprised by this unit. Installation wasn't as easy as I thought it would be as I couldn't get it quite lined up, but that was user error. Pairing with my phone was very easy. Controls on this unit are very easy. My primary use is for music. When using GPS and music from my phone the volume of the music will turn down during turn by turn directions. Sound quality for music is pretty good. I wish it had more bass tones. Volume is better than I expected. At higher speeds the volume can still be turned up to overcome wind noise but is deafening at highway speeds. Overall I'm happy with this product. I have not tried any sort of intercom function.

I looked at this product for a long time. I use it for my phone and it works flawlessly. Setup was easy and the fit to the Bell Mag 9 helmet is outstanding. The phone conversations are clear even with hearing loss in one ear. I still use my audio through the speakers because my Street Glide boom box audio will not sync. This isn't because of the Sena unit it's a known issue with Harley's Audio system.

Great product. It does what I want it to. The only issue I have is with the poor bass response.

Broke one of the ear pads while try to take out the pads. paired with my iphone 4s, the phone will ring, but you can't answer a callby tapping the but
What i have is a very expensive com system that only half works, and can't find anyone to help .

Adequate but still lacking
I used this system for about a month...so no long term stuff here.
1. Sound quality is good for what it is. The difficulty though is proper placement of the speakers. In the Bell Mag 9 helmet, the speaker pockets allow the speakers to move around too much causing a necessary repositioning almost every time you put the helmet on. I added some velcro to help. The speakers have ONE optimal position that is different for every wearer. I never found that position...well not exactly true...I got close and could lift my shoulders to lift the helmet and it was perfect. But I never could get them in the proper place.
2. At interstate speed, with earplugs, there's little use for this as a music listening device or communication system.
3. integration with other Sena SMH 10 was fine once we figured it out. It was nice being able to one push intercom with the other driver, and two push intercom with his passenger. Either could do the same with me.
4. Range was fine as far as we needed.
Good product for occasional use, especially rider to passenger. After my wreck and helmet decommissioning, I will not replace the Sena SMH 10 though. It's just not quite good enough for my needs.
