Sena SMH-10 Bluetooth Headset
Outstanding, safety enhancing product.
My brother and I each got one of these headsets about a year ago, and they were an absolute game-changer. I've since bought another for my pillion helmet. The basics:
-Easy to install on the helmets, and came pre-paired
-Controls are simple and intuitive
-More than enough volume for any situation
-Little to no wind noise on most helmets (dual sport especially does have a fair bit though) I've never had anyone ask if I'm riding my bike when I make phone calls
-Battery life- I've yet to even get a low battery warning, and there's been a few times I missed charging between a few long rides.
-Range is good, I'm not sure it's quite 900 meters in practical use but they do work for quite a ways.
So, these headsets are excellent. The initial reason we bought them was for safety, and I've since coached a brand-new rider through some basic street riding. They give you the ability to communicate about hazards, road conditions, etc. in more detail than pointing. However, they're also great for chatting. Rides are definitely more enjoyable when you can point out views or landmarks, discuss your route, and much more. Music plays seamlessly through my iPhone, as do GPS directions. Basically, if you ride with a buddy or three, these are great. If you ride by yourself and like music, GPS, and the ability to make phone calls, also great. I have yet to be disappointed in any way by my Senas, and they've really enhanced a lot of rides for me.

Awesome - should have bought years ago
Great product. This is one of the things you didn't know you needed until you got one. Just like power windows, rear doors on an extended cab truck, SENA, you need it.

Sena SMH-10 dual pack
I didn't know what I was getting, but the SMH-10 exceeded my expectations. I paired the headset to my Galaxy Note 3 phone, and when I make phone calls while riding on my Goldwing, callers tells me that they cannot tell that I'm riding my motorcycle because the microphone has no wind noise. I use voice command to make out going calls. I would recommend this product to any biker that is looking for a wireless bluetooth headset.

Great Product But Not Perfect
This is a great product and I would recommend it. Easy to install into my Shoei RF-1100. Works well with my phone and has some great battery life. Also the ease of disconnecting the device from my helmet is a big plus. The only gripe I have with the SMH-10 is that the sound quality isn't that great for music. When playing music you don't feel like you get the same quality you would expect from a better set of headphones.

Spend a little more and get a better system
Works good with GPS, breaks up with phone. Haven't been able to connect with any other brand of headset yet. Only connects with one non-sena unit.

The industry standard
I have only had my unit a couple of weeks so durability is still open. I have no reason to believe that this product wont last, all of my riding partners that use this product rave about it. I would strongly recommend this product

Now a necessity.
I can't ride without my Sena headset. It allows you to pair to multiple devices at once, and prioritizes those devices so that when a call comes through your mp3 player will automatically pause until the call is ended. It's very easy to use, and the installation was no problem. The speakers stay in place, and you can't even tell they are there until you turn them on. Sound quality is wonderful, and it makes my rides a lot better.

Love the ease of use and simple install
This is my first Bluetooth device as well as my first headset device. Everything was a breeze to set up and start using.
