Sena 20S Bluetooth Headset - Dual Pack
Great item, the clarity is great, like seround sound in your head. Distance wise, with the antenna up your can reach 1/2 mile or more in line of site, out of site about 1/4 mile or so, great options , it takes time to memorize the full menu don't have it all mastered yet, but soon , connects well to other devises, over all a great product .

Highly durable product. Interface can be improved.
Purchased the dual pack and have used it extensively.
Long battery life; at least when plugged into iPod. Used it on a 12 hour ride plugged into ipod in my jacket. Using the plug in aux cable limited my ability to switch songs. But it lasted all day and night at full blast. Of course, couldn't switch songs because it was just the aux/head phone cable.
Easy to install. Many options for wiring the device.
Sound was also impressive...However:
Sound is great when you are listening at no speed.
Sound is poor and "airy" meaning little depth and punch at highway speeds.
BUT: If you use ear plugs (which you should) and turn up the volume, then it sounds like you are wearing headphones in the office. Again, did that for a 12 hour ride at highway speed and heard every note and subtle drum beat; very pleasant.
Forwarding through songs is a slow and not-as-quick process. While I like the one touch wheel, flipping to the next song is painstaking where one has to hold the wheel down and flip through. It took a while to get accustomed to that motion. When going to the next song, there is a pause and a beep and then the next song comes on. In my opinion, not as quick as it could be.
Confusing Voice control:
Still trying to understand what modes and when I can command music and when it will listen to me.
Overall a great product, but some redesign is needed before users consider it second nature and consider it a must have on a ride.

Great product-wish the speakers had more bass
I put off buying a blue tooth headset for my helmet for a good while. I was a little put off by the price but all the reviewers I read said that for pairing, it was best to have 2 of the same headsets. So far I've been very pleased and wished that I had gotten one sooner. It pairs easily with my Zumo 660 and I phone. I wish that there was more bass from the speakers but overall the sound quality is good and wind noise doesn't seem to block out the sound. I haven't made or received calls yet but I expect that will be fine as well. The fit was perfect with my Shoei helmet and very easy to install.

These work really well
Just purchased a set of these to prepare for an Alaskan motorcycle trip. They work awesome. I have the TomTom Rider 400 that is connected and my cell phone. Both devices paired up easily to the Sena 20's. It takes some getting used to but with a phone app it's a lot easier.

Easy to use
The Sena 20s headsets are easy to set up and easy to operate. The set up instructions for more than 2 sets are a little difficult to understand - at least for me. We have a total of 6 sets. Recently 4 of us took a ride from New Jersey to Indiana and used the sets the entire ride. I found the sound quality diminished slightly from 2 sets to 4 as well as the distance. I set up the headsets using the instructions as best as I could, but as I said above, they aren't too clear. Therefore the issue may have been due to the way I set them up. I will see if I can get the set up clarified and try again with more than 2 sets. I'll update my review at that time.

This product is over all great.
This is my first time buying a product like this and I have to tell you it's pretty great. All of the features it has, are amazing. The only negative thing I can say about this product is the features are a little bit hard to learn but once it works it is 100% great. I hope maybe in the future it can be a little bit more simple and make it a plug and play type of product. Great product.

One of my best investments.
Love this thing. I had the smh10r before and then bought this. Should've bought this one first. easy to link up, radio option, and you can be on group chat AND listen to your music at the same time.

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.
