Sena 20S Bluetooth Headset - Dual Pack
Absolutely the best headset I've ever owned
Installing gets easy after installing it a few times.
To operate the buttons you'll need to know the manual.
The quality of the sound surprised me the most. Its even better than many Skype conversations. And the range of the intercom is also nice.
Haven't had any issues since I installed it.
If you wire the speaker of the right side over your head you will increase the quality of the FM Radio.
If you want quality, go with the Sena20S

Worth every cent!
I know there are over 100 reviews already boasting about this unit, but I just have to add my two coppers. This is the best comm unit we've ever owned - we even got three other friends to purchase units! The ability to listen to music on my phone WHILE having a conversation with other riders is invaluable. It's made riding much more enjoyable, especially in groups. It feels weird riding with another rider and NOT being able to talk to them. Installation was relatively easy, but the instructions can be a bit confusing. It took a bit of guessing to make it work, but they provide plenty of velco/stickers/spacers to make the mount work on any helmet. I had to use the external sticker for my helmet (no room for clamp), but I haven't had any issue with it staying in place even with daily use. Battery life is better than most, depending on if you listen to music every time you ride. I can go about 4 days of riding to and from work (30 min each way), plus casual riding after work before I have to even think about charging it. Love this unit!!

Super Easy to use, once you're used to it.
I read many great and not so great reviews with this product but went for it anyway. Installation was pretty easy, took about 20 minutes for the first one. Second will be much faster. Lets start with the good. The ease of use of the 20S is just that. Easy. Once you have some time to play around with the button commands it becomes old hat very quickly. I have not had a chance yet to use the intercom on the bike but I tried it out of the helmet and it worked great and seemed to be loud enough. The volume for the radio and ipod work great in my Biltwell Gringo S. Ok, the bad, I cant hear the commands at Highway speed at all! So using the VOX is not an option. May be the helmet which I admit is super loud. I just got a Shoei. Lets see if that changes things. TBC

I previously bought 2 hawk helmets with the blinc Bluetooth installed, loved the helmets the Bluetooth was the worst, the Sena 20s has been great very short learning curve and the sound through the intercom is amazing even at 95 mph (don't tell the cops) and the wife loves the music share option. Only down side so far is you cant music share off of an MP3. This is a great product.

Glad I finally pulled the trigger
First, I'm not sure why some people are only getting 5 hours of TALK TIME out of their units; I was on a ride from 8:30 in the morning until 7:30 at night with only a handful of stops where the units were off and I still had battery power when I got home. I'm using this with a SHOEI 1200. It takes a little effort to get the unit in place, for mounting, but nothing that should give you cause to worry. Sound quality is great (outgoing and incoming). I've used the device for voice-to-text with only minimal errors on a couple occasions. The units are very expensive, so it's a little hard to give it a 5 for 'Bang for the Buck', but, so far, it's done everything I've wanted it to.

Have a goldwing and went on a six hour ride with other gold wings. The battery only lasted 5 hours. But the radio,intercom, clarity was great. Units work great, took some time to figure out how they work and the voice command I really don't care for. Wish the battey would last longer. I will buy a battey extender or recharger for our next big trip. A lot better than being hooked up to the bike.

great if you don't need any help from Sena support
The installation instructions leave a lot to be desired....but the install only took about an hour (for both helmets). The problem we both had was with constant "say a command" prompts from the headset. I contacted Sena support and that's when it went downhill fast. They were absolutely NO help and rather irritated me (to put it mildly). We may have the problem fixed now....but I may have bought my first and LAST Sena product!!!
In summary: The product....if it works correctly...absolutely rocks. The company needs help with it's support staff.

Great product but complicated.
Everything that I have figured out how to use works great! However, it's complicated to get to work. I still haven't quite figured out all the settings and my gf has no idea how to use it beyond the basic function of intercom. The sound is great, and the mics are clear, installation wasn't as clear as I hoped and the first one took 30 minutes to install, the second one took only ten minutes. I hope to take them on a long ride and really see how they hold up.
