Sena SMH-10 Bluetooth Headset
I bought the SMH-10 to put in my HJC is-16 helmet. It is plenty loud enough for me to hear music and podcasts at 80+MPH with earplugs in. I pair it with my Galaxy S5 in car mode and do have some problems getting the S voice controls to work but I think it is just user error. I was able to send and receive text messages while riding using the bluetooth and phone in car mode quite easily. The phone reads the messages for me and text what I tell it too hands free without having to take my eyes off the road. Also being able to use the phones navigation is a huge help. So far I love it and would recommend it! The only downside I have seen so far is the pins on the back of the control piece seem like they could be broken easily I don't know if that is actually the case or not but I leave mine on the helmet in order to make sure I don't damage those pins.

I'm restricting this review to the music function as the last place I want to have a cell phone conversation - or be interrupted in general - is when I'm riding!!!
Installation and pairing were a complete snap. The large exterior dial is pretty easy to operate with gloves. I have had to adjust my own finger sensitivity as initially I was pressing vs. turning but I hope to quickly develop the muscle memory.
The sound quality is more than adequate for my full face Qwest helmet. I had battled with a Boosteroo, hard wires and my iPod for a while and got nothing but frustration in return. Once I moved to the Sena, my riding enjoyment blossomed!
While I'm ignoring or postponing my use as an intercom, it's nice to know that the capability is there, and can be used in conjunction with other riders with competing brands.
I'm docking 1 star for the sensitivity of the button. Even with Summer gloves, it's a little too tactile-y subtle. Too often when I adjust the volume or forward a track, I trigger the intercom which stops the music, pauses and prompts "Intercom failed. Try again later." More nuisance than anything, but still...
I'd love to see some type of A/B switch - or A/B/Both - to partition the functionality of the intercom v. music/GPS. I may be in the minority for that, but it'd be nice IMHO.
Still, a darned decent product!

AWESOME product! Well worth the money.
Great value! Easy to install and use - even with gloves. Sounds like a concert hall in my helmet. People calling on phone can't tell you're not sitting in an easy chair while you're talking. I highly recommend looking at the Revzilla videos that describe the products and detail how to install - very good directions.

This is the first motorcycle bluetooth helmet setup I've used, and I'm blown away. The speakers are loud enough to be heard through earplugs (or over road noise if you don't need hearing a few years down the road), and the sound quality is great. What blew me away is that when making a phone call, the person at the other end can't even tell you're on a bike. There is zero road noise, according to everybody I've called - just voice, clearly intelligible. It requires some convincing to get people to believe that you're riding down the road at 70 mph. Also, installation in an HJC CL-16 was dead simple. Very happy with this purchase.

They sound great for what they are and are dead simple to use. Nothing like putting some Rob Zombie up when pulling onto the road after 75 miles of dirt!

Plenty of features for price
The install took only 10 minutes leaving only a clean attachment to the side of the helmet,I only use for phone and music so works great for me.

works just fine and comes with enough mounting options for every helmet you are likely to use. easy to pair and robust.
