Sena 20S Bluetooth Headset - Dual Pack
This product installed so easy. I was on the highway going pretty fast on my busa and I held a telephone conversation clear as day. Easy to use, and packed full of awesome features. Great speaker clarity, and superb wind noise reduction. So flipping happy about this product, not to mention the amazing customer service at revzilla. Loyal patron noted here for sure! Revzilla for all your needs guys, no bs.

Could it get any better?
The 20S sound quality is excellent. I have made and received phone calls at highway speed in an HJC IS-17 and nobody has complaints about being able to hear or understand me. Streaming music or listening to the built in FM stereo has enough volume to rock your world! The install was incredibly simple. The directions are clear and easy to understand. The only quibble I have is that there are so many functions to remember. Which buttons to push and for how long or how many times can get confusing. But, I'm sure after using it for a while they will all come naturally. Having the smart phone app installed and mounted on the handlebar ram mount makes things that much easier. I highly recommend this if you are upgrading or even starting out!

Patience... It took a few days but I dig it now.
This unit was initially frustrating but after a few rides with it, it's starting to make sense and I'm glad I bought it. Sitting on the couch with your helmet on your head, running through the features is the best way to learn it. The first time I got on the bike everything I learned ahead of time went right out of my brain and I found the whole experience distracting. I got significantly better the next day.
With full-faced helmets my partner and I always find it hard to communicate while on the bike. We started using these and it's really made our riding together more enjoyable. She's happy to listen to her own music while on the back of my bike, I can hear my gps clearly, and we can watch out for each other when she is on her own bike. She's a new rider and wanted to finally hit the freeway for the first time a few days ago. She was nervous, and watching her try to merge was pretty scary as she was running out of lane. I was able to easily let her know she was clear to merge and I was blocking the lane for her. In that moment I was grateful I spent the 500 bucks.
As she tried to learn how to use the headset, she was getting very frustrated and I was too, but we talked through it and now we're glad we bought it and like I said, the riding together with the units is more enjoyable than I ever expected.
Getting the speakers close to your ears helps with volume and sound quality. Range is line of sight. Go around a brick building and you lose reception but on the road it's pretty clear. Noise reduction works well and the multitasking of the intercom and the fading out of music while you talk works better than I expected.

I bought this to be able to stream music and intercom in with my wife when she is with me but most importantly to make and receive phone calls. The Sena 20S is exactly what I was looking for. I made a 3000 mile trip and need to stay in contact with my clients and this bluetooth did the trick. Everyone I talked to thought I was in the office and could not hear any background noise. I also really liked the built in FM radio. If I had to knock it at all it would be that there is only 3 speed dial numbers you can save and I could really use 10 and that in high winds my coat was blowing into the unit and hitting the voice command button. What is really awesome was that on the phone app I was able to turn that off so the voice command was no longer a problem. The phone app is really easy to use and makes adjustments on the fly which is very nice. I also bought a handle bar mount for my phone and I would absolutely recommend purchasing a phone mount for use with this unit unless intercom and music is your only objective.

Great product, phone app is very useful
I use this sena headset kit on two of my helmets for an intercom and for listening to music/audiobooks/GPS when I am alone.
+battey life! Once we rode with a friend and I lent him my second helmet, we rode for almost 12 hours around town on a city orienteering competition and were talking about turn, directions and stuff almost all the time without switching the connection off and the batteries were more than 50% full at the end of the day!
+range! It maybe less than a mile, but in city traffic as long as you can somewhat see the other rider, the audio link works, it even carries around corners up to about 100m
+dual device connectivity. I can talk through the intercom and hear GPS instructions at the same time without interruption!
+audio quality for intercom. great noise cancelling and VOX, audio quality is better than mobile phone, as good as Skype or Google Hangouts
Not so good
-Hard to connect to the helmet if you put the helmet on beforehand, it's better to connect the unit before putting the helmet on.
-Phone app is almost mandatory for easy setup
-As far as I know, cannot switch off voice commands. It is annoying because they are sometimes activated from wind blast at speeds above 150 Km/h.
-Can only charge through micro usb. The problem is, if you try carging it while riding, there is a chance that you will break the usb port if you accidentally pull the cable because the plug is on the back. Would be great if there was a differend additional plug with quick disconnect on the helmet stationary part for charging while riding.

Easy to use and delivers.
I have used other communication systems over the years but have found the Sena 20S to be the best yet! Easy to install, operate and recharge. Self contained without extra cords or separate radio for bike to bike conversations. Bluetooth music and phone functions are seamless. Good value and high tech.

This unit was a great addition to my 1500 mile road trip for my bachelor party with my boys. It was awesome to be able to communicate with each other and verbally have each others back and a second set of eyes on everything.
My only complaints are that it is not available for a half she'll that I have seen, the intercom is pretty close to just line of sight especially when in mountains and hills and curvy roads, and that there is not a way to adjust intercom volumes without adjusting everything. If you could hear your music, the intercom was blaring.
It does occasionally just start asking you to say a command but the voice command without touching a button does not work that I have found.
All in all a great product that I would recommend to anyone looking to have bike to bike communications. Our to be able to listen to music and make crystal clear phone calls.
