The Sena 20S features a staggering 1.5 mile range, advanced Bluetooth 4.0 and a built-in FM radio tuner.

Sena 20S Bluetooth Headset 3.7 5 42 42
Coming from a Sena SMH-10R Not sure what the negativity is all about considering I haven't had too much of a problem with the device. The biggest selling point for me is that I cannot have a bluetooth device inside my office so pulling off the bluetooth portion of the 20s and just bring my helmet in is definitely awesome (I have a Lazer Ketrel Lite and I would like to keep people from stealing it.# On top of that I like the FM radio which is a step up from the SMH-10R and the speakers work a bit better. While playing music off my phone tends to be a bit quieter than the radio, at highway + speeds it is more than enough and I usually have to turn it down #the FM radio can get ridiculously loud). If you have a problem with hearing, you might have to adjust the speakers as they are very directional. I also like the fact that it has an AUX and addl headphone port and bluetooth 4.0 is wicked fast. One thing that I liked about the SMH-10R was that it was very small and you just don't get that with the 20s. I have also ridden out in the rain and it held up pretty well. August 28, 2014
For your sake, do NOT buy! They are NOT water-resistent, they disconnect at random, SENA support is inexistent (you can see for yourself by going to their support website and looking at how long it takes them to respond - if they do at all), they are not robust: antenna that begs to be broken off, some units have come with cracks in the housing, moderate rain with get them misfiring and glitching, without allowing shut-off, they get into 'group comm' mode and will continuously tell you that it can't connect, the battery will charge and then go through another charge cycle within an hour or two of being 'fully charged', etc, etc. Everything I've mentioned has happened to me, and to others. If you take a few minutes and search a few different sites, you'll see that all the above statements are supported by others' experience also. August 26, 2014
The claims by Sena sound great! Does not pair with any communicators? Just went on a great 2500 mile trip and was only able to listen to music!! Now that it has been installed, I am stuck with a high dollar FM radio and MP3 player. Sena needs to get this worked out and update the 20s to do what they claimed it will do!! August 25, 2014
Great potential but has a few glitches Installation took me a while, my helmet (2013 Arai Signet-Q) doesn't have a dents in its cheek pads for the speakers, so I install them by removing cheek pads covers and modifying a foam. 2014 Arai Signet-Q comes with redesigned cheek pads with a room for Bluetooth speakers. Initial pairing with Galaxy S5 was easy especially with Sena Android App. After a month of having it my unit start falling apart. The front cover separated from the main body. There are couple Torx screws that hold the front cover and one of the plastic threaded sleeves cracked in half. I called Revzilla CS and Sena as well. Looks like Sena is aware of over tighten torx screws, at least they admit its not a first case. Another issue which might be associated with is the locking mechanism that requires certain amount of pressure you need to apply evenly across in order to lock 20S to its base. Basically after you slide the unit onto base rails you have to force it (literally) further till you hear "click". To much force and one of the threaded plastic sleeves from the cover that is attach to main body of 20S with a torx screws snaps in half . I'm guessing this happened to me, cause I didn't hit anything. No, I'm not Hulk and I'm careful with my $600+ Brain-catcher and $250 Bluetooth piece. Either the plastic material used to make a front cover that holds the Torx screws is brittle/weak or the base locking mechanism spring is to strong. Besides that, weak FM reception (I heard that people had better results by running the right speaker wire within a liner on top instead of back of the helmet. Yes, speaker wire acts as FM antenna. Personally can't confirm on this, didn't have a chance to try it) there is a motion sensor that not always sense my tapping. At least its inconsistent. Sometimes you can activate Sena by simple double tap, where in other times I had to bang twice which looks stupid if you ride the motorcycle and you start banging yourself in a helmet, lol. Other then that I like it, it's fairly loud even with cheap foam ear plugs, the sound is clear but there is a lack of bass in higher volume the sound is sort of washed out (note to those who complained about the sound level: make sure to adjust the Bluetooth volume in your phone or other device to maximum otherwise your music will be quiet and the Sena voice will make your ears bleed if riding w/o plugs). I'm replacing faulty unit with Revzilla Guys, which I bought it from and which made a whole process a breeze. I want to give Sena another chance cause it's new design, new product and everything that's new has a glitches. Besides that I really like all the features Sena 20S has. August 25, 2014
Great product Will be a great addition to a group trip in Italy. August 25, 2014
Better then my last Bluetooth! Believe it or not the sound is not bad. I can still hear the music at 70 with ear plugs. I have a Shoei but I use cheap ear foam as well. Voice command is not that responsive when I say music. After yelling 4 times it will play. The double tap on the unit to pull up commands suck. It is not quick to respond. I tap almost bang on it and it will respond sometimes. But If use Siri, you can access anything on your phone. just push the button on the back and speak into the mic She have no problem hearing you...That's awesome!!!! August 23, 2014
Sena 20S, Are You Kidding Me? Piece of Junk. Let me start by stating, I have been riding motorcycles for just over 50 years and have had a lot of gear, bikes etc.. To start off on some of the problems, the latch mechanism that holds the main unit to the bracket failed after 3 releases. It will no longer engage and lock into place. The latch is very flimsy and made of plastic. I had been testing the unit since I purchased it in the end of July before I go off on a trip shortly. I also have the Bluetooth Sena GoPro backpack and that does not function with the 20S. What did work was the FM radio. Reception is non-existent and very spotty however, and I live in a major city. The voice prompt after, you state "Hello Sena" is extremely low volume. You can't hear it while riding at all. You need to be in a quiet room. If you crank the volume all the way to hear the prompt and state one of the voice functions, for example; say, "FM Radio". The radio comes on and blows your ear drums out. I go on a 2 week trip in 7 days and obviously I will not be able to get the unit replaced or repaired in time. I'm stuck with a Sena Bluetooth Backpack and a Sena 20S that does not function and will not be ready for my trip. I can't recommend this unit. Stay away. August 22, 2014
Don't ride in the rain with it I ride year round, rain or shine and expect my gear to survive the ride. I got rained on today and the 20S failed within 10 minutes. It started beeping randomly and is stuck in group intercom mode. It decided to enter group intercom mode all by itself, no interaction from me. The media player remains interrupted to allow intercom discussion unless I am stopped and there is no surrounding noise. It cannot be turned off unless it is removed from the helmet mount/contacts. My GPS still visually notifies me of incoming calls but the S20 is no longer able to switch to the call even though it is still paired and connected. I won't provide a review on anything other aspect of the S20 until I have a replacement and am able to verify it is able to withstand a little rain. I do expect a replacement even if it dries out and starts working properly again, since it is reasonable to expect it to fail again the next time it gets wet, and it will. Pretty disappointed...

A shopper asked: I currently use a wired intercom with a hot-mike which allows instant communication between rider and passenger, this is a priority for me. Does this, or any BT system, allow for instant communication or does the VOX have a delayed activation? If listening to music with the device is there a delay with the VOX? Thanks. Dec 19, 2013

Tristan R: The 20S has integrated the new features that enable users quicker and easier accessibility while using the unit. Intuitive voice commands have been built into the 20S to ensure riders can maintain handsfree control while riding. The voice commands allow riders to operate functions such as intercom connections, mobile phone calls, music playback control and more without needing to take their hands off of the handle bars.

Another key feature allowing for quicker and easier accessibility is the new interface based on motion sensor technology for easy set-up and pairing. The motion sensor feature allows the pairing of Bluetooth devices with a simple shake of the units. The new feature allows users to spend less time setting up and pairing units and more time enjoying their ride. The motion sensor feature is also firmware upgradeable to allow for additional yet to be released features.

A shopper asked: Which GPS units will the Sena 20S pair with using Bluetooth for trip routing? I have the SMH10 and was informed that GPS voice directions would pair to it but that is not the case. I have a Garmin nuvi 3597 GPS and Garmin says it will not work with the SMH10 and furthermore Garmin indicates there is no way they can make all their bluetooth gps units compatible with all bluetooth headsets!! Mar 11, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (1) No (0)
Josh M: The Sena SMH10 and 20S will pair perfectly with all the Garmin's that pair with headsets. The nuvi 3597 hasbluetooth but does not pair to headsets. It pairs to phones so you can talk and hear through the GPS unit (and stow phone). The models meant for motorcycles, (Zumo models for example) pair to headsets as well as phones. All on Garmin's website. Mar 12, 2014
Reply to Josh Good answer? Yes (2) No (0)
David S: I agree that it can't be used with everything. Depending on how Garmin implemented the BT. This is also the case with Zumos. I have the Zumo 550 and while I could pair over BT for navigation, phone and music (MP3) Garmin decided that if you added the optional XM antenna you can only get XM over the hardwire Audio out. So I have to run the hardwire audio out to a Sena SM10 BT hub which then I pair the headset to. Basically skipping the pairing of the GPS direct to the headset. So if the Nuvi 3597 audio out, the SM10 is an option. Though it is pretty spendy if that is all you want it for. It does add the capability of adding a couple aux inputs such as multiple Garmins (I run 3 of them) and an input for a PTT style radio (FRS/GMRS/CB). Since I use the radios for bike to bike Comms it was easier to justify the cost of the SM10. If I only wanted it for a BT bridge for XM I would have done a cheap BT dongle off eBay. Apr 3, 2014

A shopper asked: Is the 20s unit compatable with any other in helmet speakers or ear buds by other manufacturers? Aug 18, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Michelle S: I purchased the 20s, and was not able to hear music or conversations clearly with the standard speakers that came with the unit. I tried everything, but the wind noise and road noise, even with the volume turned as high as it would go, I was still not able to hear properly.

So, I purchased the SHURE SE215 Earphones, and they work GREAT. The system is compatible with other ear-buds. The 20s has both an earphone/bud and an Axillary port ( mp3 player )

I removed the standard speakers off the unit ( just a little screw turn ) and the speakers/wires are removed.

I do not know about other helmet speakers compatibility.

S S: Yes. According to the instructions you can use your choice of buds or speakers.

I haven't changed either yet on my 20s, but when I upgraded the Sena smh10 to Tork X Pro speakers, the difference was incredible. Huge upgrade in clarity, bass and overall sound. The speakers on the 20s are pretty rocking out of the box so I haven't needed to.

Richard B: Yes - it uses Bluetooth technology to talk with other non-Sena products. Here is something I copied out of the owners manual:

18.1 Universal Intercom Pairing
The 20S can be paired with non-Sena Bluetooth headsets for Bluetooth
intercom conversation. You can pair the 20S with only one non-Sena
Bluetooth headset

You might want to go online to the Sena website and download the whole owner's manual pdf (for free) which will tell you all of the Sena 20S capabilities - I tried to post the link here for you but it's not allowed.

Jang J asked: Taping 20S to initiate "voice command" is hit or miss. What is the best way to do it? Jul 7, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Sena B: With the v1.1 firmware for the 20S you can set the Motion Sensor sensitivity to "high" or "low" or you can disable it entirely. With the Motion Sensor set to "high" you need to gently tap the body of the 20S (or on the helmet around the 20S) twice to activate the voice command. The best way to activate it is to gently tap two times while counting the seconds. Count to one second for the first tap and then count two seconds for the second tap. With the sensitivity level set to "low" you only need more force when tapping but the same 1 second gap in between each taps. Jul 8, 2014
Reply to Sena Good answer? Yes (2) No (0)
Brian K: Jang, I've had the 20s for several week, and admittedly have not spent a lot of time on., but so far tapping it does not work for me.
I suggest the following
1) Join the forum at Sena for tips and to view existing problems (lots).
2) Update both firmware and software as they become available.
I do think Sena is trying and currency of software and firmware is your best bet.
Jul 8, 2014
Reply to Brian Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Steven D: Did you do the update? They added a sensitivity setting which can be adjusted from the smartphone app. They also have a bunch of tutorial videos on their website. One of them shows how to do the tapping. Which by the way they recommend tapping your helmet and not the body of the 20S.

Hope this helps.

I have ordered the product, but have not used it. I am expecting delivery in May, 2014. I had questions prior to placing my order and sent my questions through Sena's website. Several of their staff provided answers quickly. I would suggest contacting them.

A S asked: What is different in the 20 from the 10? I see the ability to pair with ANY Bluetooth headset and Bluetooth 4...whatever that does...anything else that would push me to the 20 in place of the 10? Apr 2, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (1) No (1)
David S: Right before the announcement of the 20 I had bought a SMH10. I returned the SMH10 for the following reasons. The 20 has FM radio tuner built in, it also has better range for bike to bike communications. The universal communications was another reason but that feature is supported with the latest Firmware update on the 10 now. It also has better voice control but that may have been improved on the 10 with the firmware update. Not sure about that one. The biggest selling point for me was the FM tuner as I was looking at adding one to the bike tied into my SM10 which I have for GMRS/CB radios and XM. Apr 2, 2014

A S: You indicate the 10 was used for GMRS/CB...did it actually work for the cb? If so, what are you riding? I have a Harley and they keep saying NO BLUETOOTH will work the CB. Apr 2, 2014
David S: Just to clarify when I say SM10 it is different than the SMH10. SM10 is a Bluetooth Hub which adds PTT capability for certain radios and allows aux inputs for other various non-BT devices like GPS, radar detectors, ect. Personally I ride a Honda ST1300. This bike doesn't have any factory radio options. So for GMRS I am running a Icom F21 Commercial GMRS with NMO whip antenna. For CB/WX I use Midland 75-822 with whip antenna. I have to be selective on if I am using GMRS or CB but it is easy to switch. Depends on if I am riding in a group (GMRS) or solo (CB/WX). Then I have 2 Aux inputs for two of my 3 Garmins. While I have a Zumo 550 with XM which has BT built in, it doesn't support XM over BT. I would have to upgrade to the Zumo 665. Since I needed the SM10 anyhow for the conversion of comms to BT, I just run the Zumo through that. The phone goes to the Zumo so I have caller ID and everything routes through the SM10 Hub which is compatible with pretty much any BT headset (Sena or not). I can't speak for other CB systems and many times OEM systems are hard to tie into BT. So their statement that no CB works with BT. Well if they are talking Harley integrated CB they could be right. If they are talking aftermarket radios, then I would say not true. I do it. I will say that range sucks with CB which is why I don't use it much. The 4 watt transmit power on my Icom F21 crushes it in terms of range. More so when teamed with a quality antenna. I use a Laird whip. Apr 3, 2014

Sena B: The 20S can be used with half helmets. Depending on the design, you will need to use your own pair of earbuds and plug them into the Earbud Jack since there won't be a place to install the speakers on the helmet. Apr 30, 2014
