Sena SMH-10 Bluetooth Headset
Have Bluetooth in the car so I had to get it for the bike!
The one complaint I hear from people is that the volume of the speakers is quiet. I have to make sure my phone volume is up high in order for the headset volume to be heard at speeds higher than 60. But once I do that I haven't had any issues with not being able to hear from the speakers (I wear earplugs).
The headset comes in handy when you've been playing phone tag for awhile and the only time someone can call you is when you are riding.
I use my phone for navigation and music. I love how it lowers the volume of the music so that the navigation can be heard or pauses it all together when an incoming call comes in.
I haven't tried the intercom feature yet as I haven't been on any group rides lately but I'm sure it works just fine.

It does everything you'd expect
I'm very happy with it- so far, it delivers everything it promised. I haven't used the intercom feature yet, but I've ridden a couple thousand miles through at least a few pretty strong thunderstorms and it has held up beautifully. I added the boom mic/earbuds option and use the etymotic safety earbuds- sounds quality is great, and the boom mic works beautifully- people have said they'd never suspect that I was calling from the highway.
The controls are easy enough to figure out, and battery life went to about 10.5 hours of music the one time I ran it all the way down. I would definitely buy this again.

This intercom is easy to install, use, and it works great. I have the shark raw helmet and could have a phone conversation at 70 mph without an issue. Love the ability to skip song forwards and backwards with out having to touch my phone. Great product!!

Worked like a champ with another SMH-10 rider without incident...
Watched install vids & installed total time maybe 30 minutes - had problem with boom mic reaching mouth since Helmet is a Shark Evoline 3 total modular and requires lots of "hinge" room to flip face shield back/up - had to leave exterior jog dial control about 1/2" off the helmet so it does not snug up fully but still had plenty of clip to bite the helmet - did 12 hour ride without issue.
Even able to talk @ 60 mph with full open face = wind noise not to bad at all! Impressed...
Doesn't come with a Wall charger - USB cable only...
Not looking to use any "bells & whistles" - really just for talking with another - but did get 4 phone calls on the Android and that worked like a champ as well - great clarity both ways!

Great Except for the Speakers
I bought this for my husband for his birthday. So far he loves it with the exception of the speakers. He said that they started crackling right away and when I listened to the music in the helmet it was clearly lacking bass. This can be easily remedied by purchasing new speakers for it. The microphone sound quality is great and I can hear him just fine with very little background noise when he calls me. My husband says that it is very easy to use while riding, and the voice recognition with this device works very well.

I finally have some tunes with my ride.
I finally have some tunes with my ride. The install on my Scorpion EXO-900 was a little rough. The instructions were fine but the design of the helmet kept the clamp from fitting. The helmet is too thick at the bottom. I tried to use the sticky tape that was included in case the clamp didn't work. That held for a couple of days and let go. I have been using a product called INDUSTRIAL STRENGTH VELCRO For years so I tried it and all is good now. The sound clarity is good. It's not going to be like sitting in your living room. Nothing can compete with the wind noise. Phone calls are clear. I have not tried the intercom feature yet as I am more of a solo rider. I would recommend this product.

Can't complain for the price
For the price this thing is great. I still have some getting use to but it is so far pretty easy to use and install. I haven't tested the intercom function yet. But phone calls are great.
