Sena 20S Bluetooth Headset - Dual Pack
Versatility and affordability
Purchased a Sena 20S Bluetooth Headset - Dual pack and two extra mounts so that I could put a mount on each of the helmets we own (2 Schuberth C3s, a Shoei Hornet and the kid's AFX Reaper# and just share the units depending on who's riding.
Installing the mounts on the Hornet and the Reaper couldn't have been any simpler. Clamps on the side of the helmet and is solid #highway tested#. Schuberth prefers their SRC system which is more expensive #one of our helmets is a Pro so that would have bumped up the cost even more# but is obviously a cleaner install since it just replaces the neck roll. The Schuberth helmet is thicker so the clamp for the Sena 20s mount will NOT work and so you have to use the provided 3M tape to stick it to the side, but other than that - again - the install is simple and effective #again, highway tested# which was really encouraging.
Ease of Use:
First use was with my daughter #C3 and Reaper# as passenger. Updated the firmware #minor pain# prior to first use. Connected to iPhone 6S, piece of cake, did a cursory scan of the Quick Guide on the iPhone, paired the two headsets, turned on the intercom, and off we went. That simple. My daughter was talking my ear off #or singing# for the next 40 miles! Since then we've used both sets on separate bikes - range is good, sound is great #note: Schuberth C3 is better than the Hornet or Reaper for sound clarity/quality - the C3 keeps out road noise better than any helmet I've worn - but the other two are still more than acceptable#.
More features/options right out the box than I've explored yet so you certainly get your money's worth #imho). And the versatility - for me - is a huge selling point.
Hope this helps.

Excellent-almost a must-Addition
Can't believe I've been driving all these years without these! Revzilla is absolutely the best in information, customer service, and quality. Should be a commercial like the fast sub sandwich delivery company (won't say the name!), as I ordered these while travelling and they got to my house before I did! Love the service. The controls will take some getting used to, but sound quality, and quality of the actual product seems outstanding. Heading out on 3,000 mile trip next month, anxious to see how well they work for that long of continuous use!

Excellent sound quality for voice and music. NOT AT ALL GOOD for bike to bike intercom. Range is 300 yards on a good day.
I was very impressed with the ease of setup and use. Tone quality was superb. It's downfall was in bike to bike communication, which is primarily what we need them for. They claim 1.1 miles....NOT. On an open flat road, the very best we could get was 300 yards at the most. I returned them after consulting Sena tech support as they had no suggestions that helped.

Perfectly clear sound, no wind noise at all, sounds like you're sitting next to each other on the couch!!
We are really impressed, these gizmos have changed our rides forever!! No more waving and pointing!! My wife has a full face helmet and I have a German style, we figured I'd have to get a full face to hear each other, but there is absolutely NO ROAD OR WIND NOISE, even with my cheesy helmet!! I don't know how they do it, but we talk like we're sitting next to each other on the couch, instead of on two different bikes, one a very loud Harley!! I've ordered an open face 3/4 helmet so I can hear the radio better at speed, but even wearing the German helmet, she can hear me speaking clearly!! Very impressed!! We highly recommend these doohickeys!!

Its a pretty good product, but intercoms cut out before a 1/4 mile even though there are no obstructions and we can still see each other clearly

Really incredible system
We dot these to be able to talk and make changes to our destination on the fly. The Sena 20S is surprising, the sound quality and volume is impressive. We ride LOUD Twin V's on noisy highways but we can hear each other easily.
The Sena comes with all the inserts and pieces to adjust the speakers for the helmet to get the speakers to the distance one desires from the ear.
I put ease of use at 4 because I have not used the instructions to figure out how to use all the features. I have used the FM radio once, the first time I received an incoming call I want sure how to answer it (again, since I've never read the instructions#, but I did answer the call fine. The person calling was surprised when they found out I was traveling down the highway. They told me it was clear #just like when we are talking to each other on the road).
Super cool product, I will never ride without comms again.

Great quality for reasonable price
I bought the dual pack for myself and my girlfriend, being our first foray into the Bluetooth headset world. We got one up and running no problems, however, the microphone port on the second docking unit didn't work. I got in touch with the Revzilla customer service team, who were a great help in getting a replacement unit sent out promptly to me which resolved the issues experienced. I've heard of a few small teething issues on other reviews, but like those reviewers I have experienced great support from Revzilla and Sena so I would highly recommend their services.
Sounds quality on the product is superb, bike-to-bike communication is fantastically clear and with incoming mobile phone calls it's far better than the Bluetooth in my car. The ability to swap out the included mic types (boom or wired) dependent on helmet type is also a great feature..
Connectivity to my iPhone works great too, admittedly you do have to speak pretty clearly to get the voice commands to recognise your instructions, but seeing as I mainly use it to listen to music if riding on my own I've had no problems.
The only slight gripe I would have is that when touching the jog dial with gloves on, it is possible to accidently knock the buttons, but this is a minor issue.
All-in-all very happy with the purchase and I would highly recommend it

this is my first set of Bluetooth headsets for motorcycle use and I am very pleased. easy to install, music through the speakers is better than I expected and the sound clarity for intercom use is great.
