Bell Mag-9 Sena SMH-10 Bluetooth Headset
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.

Nicely engineered and easy to use
I've got this mounted on 3 helmets including the Bell which was a simple 10 min install and a Nolan 104 which was anything but simple. I opted to cut into the Nolan rather than use the adhesive not trusting it. In all cases, once installed, the pairing to my phone, gps and my cousin's Sena took only a few minutes. Everything worked as advertised. Sound is very clear and volume easy to control while riding with winter gloves.
I haven't had it long enough to comment on durability, but this seems to be a high quality piece of equipment. I did drop a previous one and the little tab broke off so it no longer snaps into place however the BT still works.
