Sena SMH-10 Bluetooth Headset
Needs louder speakers
Great product, easy to use but I wish the volume was louder. Sometimes hard to hear the music and calls when riding but overall an easy product to use and easy to install.

This is so much better than my Scala Rider Q2. I highly recommend the Sena SMH 10 to anyone looking for a Bluetooth communicator, well done Sena!

Easy to use!
My brother and I just got these and love them! Easy to install and easy to use. The only downfall is sometimes wind noise is an issue but I think that's due more to the venting in my helmet than the product.

Best investsment so far hands down
Duribility left blank because I havn't had it too long yet. I'm in the process of training a new rider, we both have one in our tour helmets. It took only 1 ride to convince me that it was the best thing I've ever bought for my bike. Traveling down the highway at 110 kph, I get a phone call from my wife to test it, she couldn't tell I was on the bike, I had a little wind noise from my helmet but not bad. It fits great in the Shoei Neotec and my buddies HJC Modular (not sure the model) The only thing they could improve on this product is an open channel option for more than 2 people per channel.

All I was hoping for - works great
So far this headset has been as nice, and often nicer than I was expecting. I've only had it about a month, so can't speak directly to durability yet, but the quality of the construction seems excellent.
I was pleasantly surprised at the audio quality. I had been using some cheap-o speakers in my headset and never loved them (hard to hear once at highway speeds). It took a little while to dial in the way they sit in my helmet and against my ear to provide the best sound quality, while not pressing up against the ear (well worth spending the time to get this right to get the best performance/comfort out of them). They come with an additional foam pad that has velcro on both side, so you can move the speakers closer to your ear..but too close at first. I took out my stapler, and just stapled it flat it and was a perfect fit. Great sound, even on the highway.
I only use mine for music/gps/cell phone, and can't speak to the intercom function, but imagine it would be good given all the other reviews.
The cell phone calls are pretty good, but not super clear. But since music and GPS are very clear, I suppose it's more to do with my phone.

Great experience with my first headset
The purchase of the SENA SMH 10 headset is my first so I really don't have anything to compare to. I relied heavily on the Revzilla reviews and recommendations and I was not disappointed. Installation was very easy on my Shoei Neotec and although we are still getting used to the operation of the controls it seems that we have almost mastered most features. So far, very pleased with this purchase.

Good product for the price
I wish they could figure out how to hook it up to the BMW K1600 system for BOTH headsets to hear music. The sound quality is good for a pair of small speakers in a helmet that are not resting directly against your ears.
The VOX features do not work well, especially with a 3/4 Helmet (with face shield). They should just allow speaking quickly, but require you to initiate the intercom, then talk, even with Vox. Therefor intercom is "on" or "off".
Overall we are pleased with the product, but it cannot even shine a light on wired systems like our HD Ultra-glides had.

Sena Bluetooth headsets are by far the best!
Sena Bluetooth heat sets smh10 are high quality. You will not be disappointed. I had a defective microphone and Sena took care of me. I told the that I had a ride coming up soon and requested for the return to be expedited. About an hour or less after I called Sena, they called me back to confirm my mailing address. They were sending me the replacement piece even though they had not yet received the defective part. They said since the defective part was on its way they wanted to make sure I had my Sena headset working for my up up coming ride.
I didn't understand part of the instructions on pairing two Bluetooth headsets together, but one call to Sena cleared up any confusion. They actually care about helping their customers. They are not just there answering calls. They are sincere and will do all they can. I have spoke to and emailed several employees of Sena throughout this shirt process and they truely tried to get me back on the road with my headset.
You pay a little more for Sena but the customer service is worth it. I know that if I have any problems that I will be taken care of.
