Sena SMH-10 Bluetooth Headset
Bluetooth does not work properly with most internet applications
Ok, this is the problem with this device, it works fine when it comes to plain phone conversations....yet the world is shifting to a different type of communication, for instance Voxer, Whatsapp and the other million similar apps out there
So if you want to talk with your friends while riding in a long boring ride (as I do every single day to and from work) you are doomed.
The headset allows you to HEAR the conversations but you CANNOT talk since the device fails to make the microphone available. The internal phone mic will still be active instead (hence people will listen to the motorbike engine!!)
Support it's not professional. it's like they have volunteers people who try hard but this is not charity..or is it?

This product is all and more than it is said to be!
I have tried other products similar to SMH-10. This is the ONLY one that fits my helmets perfectly. Most of all.....I am able to hear clearly through the speakers at travel speeds up to 70MPH with my face shield in the open position. Definitely not true with any other device I have used. A receiver of my cellphone call advises that my voice is clear and audible under similar conditions as stated above. The SMH-10 is the ultimate for my needs.

Great first buy!
I went from a cruiser to a Gold Wing, which meant I had to get new gear. After a long search of finding the right helmet, I found the SMH-10 headset for decent price and decided to try it. Easy to install, synch, and easy to operate. I have my audio from the bike piped in through my headset and the sound is awesome, and me and the wife can converse also. Great product for my first buy.

Right tool for the job
Few of my buddies picked this one up and loved it, I jumpped on the band wagon and havent looked back. Syncs with the phone for music (has an AUX input as well), intercom clarity with outher units is solid.
All in all its a great unit for the money spent. Don't spend more on the model with the can opener and smoothie bar, this baby has all you need.

I love this product. Simple to install and it came with great written instructions but Revzilla's Anthony made great videos covering installation and pairing, as well as function. The buyer learns well of the purchase he/she has made prior to purchase.
The speakers install easily and give great sound. With research you will discover most all helmet mounted speakers lack depth and bass definition compared to a more expensive ear-plug. I found the SMH-10 does a very good job of providing link to my mobile phone in my tank-bag or mounted on the handlebars. It links to my BMW IV GPS also mounted ahead of my handlebars.

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.
