Sena SMH-10 Bluetooth Headset 4.6 5 761 761
Awesome product I recommend this for anyone wanting to make there riding experience that much better September 8, 2014
Good with helmet closed. Works well with phone when helmet chin bar down. Works OK for music, better for talk/news radio such as NPR etc. September 8, 2014
Great devise for listening to music and navigation instructions I bought this bluetooth headset primarily for piping navigation, from my iPhone into my helmet and listening to music while riding. The installation was very straightforward and took under 30 minutes to mount to my Shoei GT-Air. The sound clarity is good even at highway speeds. I have made calls @ 70 plus MPH with no complaints about wind or road noise from the boom mic. Controls for power, volume, and voice instruction are very well thought out and easy to execute even with winter riding gloves. Battery life seems to be pretty good. I have used mine for 6+ hours at a a time (music and navigation) without the need to recharge. To date I have not used the intercom feature but would expect it to work as well as advertised based on my experience with the other functions. Great product and super value for a straightforward bluetooth devise. Lastly, the odd looks from your wife and kids as you sit on the couch, helmet on, listening to music and making calls for an hour after you install it are priceless. I would recommend you buy one now. September 8, 2014
Sena SMH-10 Bluetooth Headset Bought this it put in my Shoei Quest helmet. Install was simple and easy. Ear phones fit well in the provided space in the Shoei. If I were to buy another I would suggest the wired mike not the boom mike. Sound quality is good, easy to connect with my iPhone. That's the good, the bad is the wiring to the ear phones are rather small and delicate IMHO. The left ear phone works only intermittently now. Cause seems to be the wiring into the earphone. I have not used the other features as I don't have a intercom system. Overall a good buy, just be careful of the wires. August 26, 2014
Go for the knob, people! The knob may look big, compared to the slim look of other products with buttons, but the Sena SMH-10 is easy to use with a gloved hand. (You all ride with gloves for safety, right!?) Easy to install. Easy functions to learn. Speakers lack bass punch, but that's to be expected from a slim speaker in an open cavity backed by foam. The noise canceling is awesome, as most people can't tell I'm riding during a phone call. The intercom is great, though the voice-activation can switch on if you have too much wind noise - just reduce the mic sensitivity. Streaming AND sharing my music with my riding partner is one of the coolest features out there! Great value and Revzilla made it easy, as always! August 25, 2014
Worth every penny I got the SMH10 to communicate with my buddy (he's new to ridding) and this device gave me a way to guide him & give him pointers as we ride. Would have liked to have the earphone jack on this unit instead of having to spend another $54... August 19, 2014
great com gear! Sets up easily and durable! Sound quality excellent up to a point. Mounting to the helmet was easy and well thought out but it does increase wind noise on the left side of the helmet. It isn't much of a factor until about 70mph and above. Ear plugs were required on my helmet. My right ear speaker stopped working on the 3rd day of a long dusty trip and it was diagnosed on the trail as a recessed pin on the pod and it was easily fixed on the spot and it worked perfectly thereafter. September 17, 2014
great features!! long lasting battery, easy to use split the price with a buddy so technically only paid $140 for one, we ride off road and on road and makes communicating in the tough trails easy. A+ recommend!! September 15, 2014

Walesca S: I was looking for a universal bluetooth intercom to chat with my riding buddies. After looking at many devices I didn't see one that would communicate with other device brands. I sent RevZilla an email asking if such a thing existed and Spurgeon Dunbar quickly replied with a thorough response indicating that the latest firmware for the SMH-10 will pair up with other intercom brands. I chose this intercom because of Spurgeon's advice and I chose to buy through RevZilla because of Spurgeon. =) Mar 12, 2014

Charles G: Adding a 3rd Sena SMH-10 to the two I already have. Outstanding range, clarity, and exceptional battery life. An absolute must have if you are riding with someone you want to share the ride with on different motorcycles or two up on the same bike. Dramatically adds to the enjoyment of any ride. Aug 7, 2013

Richard B: Well, I'm one of those blessed individuals who must accept this fact: If I ride....it rains. I'm officially known as the Rain God in seven countries as of this writing. It's encountered several bouts of precipitation and one total deluge thus far. I have had one instance where it rained heavily when the motorcycle was parked and my helmet was hanging on its side. After pouring the water contents out of the helmet and placing it on my head, the Sena came to life flawlessly. There has been no issues to date. I had some concern particularly with the charger receptacle and the "not quite watertight" cover that it features, but I've not seen any problems arising from this. In all, I am quite satisfied with this unit and it's performance features. Apr 4, 2014

Ed W: There is a half helmet version for the Sena. I have not used it as I don't have a half helmet. But it looks like it zips in or fastens to certain half helmets and the speakers appar to b like ear flaps that go over the ear.
Other than that I am extremely happy with the Senas that we use.

Jeremy T: No.

This setup needs at least 3/4 helmet. The speakers have a velcro reverse that allow you to install them right where your ears fit into your helmet.

Frederick S: Michael,

I havent tried using my SMH-10 with a half helmet, but I'm pretty sure it won't work. The speakers attach with velcro to the inside of the helmet, so depending on your particular helmet, you might be able to work that out; but the real challenge is the mic. On a full helmet, its positioned inside and out of the wind. On those occassions when my mic has been inadvertantly moved down a little and is exposed, it's almost impossible to hear anything because of the wind. I can't imagine how it would be workable if its fully exposed on a half helmet.

Hope this helps!

Mike B: I'm answering this because I bought this product and was sent an email by Revzilla asking me to answer this. I don't have a half helmet, so don't know if it will work or not. The speakers fit into the ear pocket/indentation in my helmet liner padding. The back of the speaker has a hook type material like Velcro, or the packaging supplies the hook sheets as stickers you can apply if needed. I haven't look at mine in a long time so am no longer sure. Hope that helps you.. Nov 3, 2013

A shopper asked: this question is in relation to the one about the microphone/phone/earbuds compatibility. Sep 19, 2011
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
PsychoCabbage: I am not an audiophile by any means. The position of the speakers is crucial to it all though.
I wear a Joe Rocket 201 and its great but at speeds over 80mph it gets crazy loud due to wind. I find this is because the helmet shifts ever so slightly due to the forces. A simple pat on the helmet and its where it should be and the speakers are lined up better with my ears so the sound is restored.

Take the time to optimally place your speakers and you should be fine.

If the speakers concern you too much, you can always get the Sena earbud headset connection unit. It allows you to use your earbuds with the headset system so the speakers will always be where you put them!

ZepRider: Clear and loud are actually two separate things. It's been my experience that I wouldn't trade these for the world. They sound great although not high fidelity and they are plenty loud. There are some instances where wind and road noise can drown out the clarity of what your hearing and turning up the volume leads to louder audio that's just as unclear and hurts your hearing. This doesn't happen often. Sep 20, 2011

Daniel Y: I don't own a modular helmet, but having a Bell Vortex (a pretty loud helmet) the speakers weren't clear enough for me at speeds over 50-60mph. However if you go on their website, you will find alternate mounts to the bluetooth that uses earphones/earbuds. It has an audio jack outlet instead of having speakers wired to it. I believe it costs around $35-$40. Hope this helps. Sep 19, 2011

Millsan1: I would say that if your helmet is noisier than the speakers on this unit, you should replace helmet ASAP. I can not turn this unit all the way up, as it would literally be deafening. I ride at multiples of the speed limit and never had an issue. Apr 3, 2012

Sean M: The speakers are great. I was supposed how loud and clear they are I had to turn down the unit a lot so I can hear other cars on the highway. I have a moto gp exhaust on my bike and it complete blocked the sound out Apr 30, 2012

Grastech: Yes, I have the unit in both my HJC IS 33 which is a 3/4 helmet and I have it in my AFX FX90 full face helmet and the speakers are loud enough in both up to about 70 mph then some wind noise starts to be a factor. Oct 20, 2011

Stan Z.: Let's be realistic here for a minute.

I have the Sena and the UClear units. The Sena is hands-down the winner in ease of use and also total system volume. BUT - at highway speeds of 70-80mph your music is going to compete head-to-head with wind noise, unless you're behind a windshield the size of a Goldwing's. The sheer velocity of wind hitting your helmet, even on a calm day, is LOUD without earplugs. With earplugs you sacrifice volume from the unit, period. The best thing about this though is the fact that Sena realizes this and offers a mount with an earbud jack. Earbuds are the way to go if you plan to use this unit for highway touring. At speeds of 65mph or less the speakers are fine, and you even have to turn down the volume a bit or it can be harsh on your ears for extended periods. Before the Sena, I used to always use my iTouch with a decent set of earbuds for my highway treks. It's still a better option than the Sena with speakers, but the Sena is great with earbuds, and louder than my iTouch was by itself.

Also remember that a higher collar also improves wind noise cancellation, and you also have the option of buying one of those helmet collars that I hear does a great job of killing a lot of wind noise too.

A S asked: Is the mic detachable for this SMH10? Because im using a open face helmet.Would look weird with a mic sticking out. Jun 24, 2014

Roger L: Hi A S

There are a number of different clamps you can get. This particular one I don't believe has a detachable mic. However, I used it for well over a year with my Shark Evoline Helmet (that works as Full or Open Face).

You want the boom mic for an open face helmet because there is nowhere else to stick the wired mic. Otherwise you couldn't speak - and when I mean speak, I don't just mean take phonecalls, I mean control your iPhone/Android with Siri or Google Now! Send SMS texts hands-free etc.

I find the mic on the Sena one of its best features

Cheers

CB750K: Yes they will work. However its all a balance between max volume and many factors wind noise, bike noise, speaker position, ear plug type (Correctly inserted earplugs, should not be visible if looking square in mirror).

Here is my current setup :
I wear good quality 'pinch and roll' type ear plugs and a noisy helmet (old Shoei X12 no chin curtain), naked CB750K2 with stock exhaust (quite), speakers tucked into chins strap channel (not ideal). At 100km/hr (70m/hr) and Sena at full volume is just useable. (I am 33 and do not suffer for any hearing loss as I recently had my hearing checked for work and have a strict hearing protection policy)

At non-highway speeds it is very easy to hear.

I plan to get a quieter touring helmet with integral speaker cutouts Shoei XR1100, I beileive this will improve the performance.

A shopper asked: Just wondering if the sena smh10 r will work with othe blue tooth com systems. My old man has a Nolan and was wondering if they can be paired? Aug 20, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Robert R: I can't be sure about the Nolan system but I use several BT devices in other helmets and have tried with no success. The ones I have tried are an older SCALA unit, a unit put out by Dainese specifically for their helmets and, most recently a J&M Bluetooth unit.

I wish I could give you more info but it is my understanding that each BT manufacturer uses their own "code" which makes their systems incompatible with other manufacturers. For manufacturers to use someone else's code they would have to pay for licensing rights etc. which would make the units more expensive; not to mention that they want you (and your riding buddies) to buy their equipment.

As a user for more than 7 months I must say that the SMH-10 does everything I have wanted and more. I commute on my R1200GS almost 80 miles round trip every day and the system works flawlessly for both communications and entertainment. The J&M comes close but when you throw price into the equation it's the Sena all the way.

Tony G: This is from the Sena website FAQ as of Jan 15 2014:

Yes, only if the headset has been updated to a firmware version that has the Universal Intercom feature and the non-Sena headset can be paired to a device such as a mobile phone. When paired to a Sena headset, the non-Sena needs to make a phone call in order to connect to the Sena headset for intercom communication since the non-Sena headset will act as if the Sena headset is another phone rather than a Bluetooth headset.

Pierre L: Hi, to my best knowledge, even though all different brands use the same protocol; Bluetooth, interbrands communication is not possible. In other words, Sena must pair with Sena, Cardo with Cardo and so on ... This is something I was unaware of when I bought my SMH10. Had I known, I would probably have chosen a more popular brand like Cardo for instance.
This is the only thing that I found a bit disenchanting about this product, as over all, everything else is A+.

Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Capt M: Mark there is no difference they are the same SMH-10 on the Revzilla web site refers to a single unit. The Dual pack is shown as SMH10 I would think the web designer just put the DASH in between in the first listing. Now there is a SMH-10R, same as the SMH10 but a slim and sleek profile so it sits more flush to your helmet. I prefer the SMH10 as the control knob is easy to operate with gloves on.

So to summaries there is a Sena SMH10 and a Sena SMH10R, there reference to the Sena SMH-10 is an oversight on the Revzilla web page, just of to the Sena Homepage it has all the units listed there.

Charles C: From my experience the bluetooth unit is the same. The Revzilla website seems to designate two different type of mics, a boom mike for one and a wired mic for the other. The Sena website lists the product as SMH10, no hyphen. I have different type of clamps/mics on multiple helmets, open face and a couple of full face helmets, but only one bluetooth unit. The clamps remain on each helmet and the bluetooth unit swaps easily between helmets without having to remove the clamps/mics. Apr 15, 2014

Ed W: The SMH-10 is the clamp kit for a helmet, while the SMH10 is the entire kit including the clamp kit and Sena Bluetooth intercom module.
I have a couple of extra SMH-10 clamp kits installed on other helmets that I don't wear often, thus, I can switch the Sena intercom module quickly by clipping the Sena Bluetooth unit to the clamp kit.
Hope this helps.

Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
H Ross R: I purhased the accessory mike that is wired but not a boom mic. The regular unit mounts to my Neotech just fine. I mounted the mic element to the cheek pad. It works great but you need the chin bar down to use while moving and the face shield closed above about 25 due to wind noise. The mic element stiks to the cheek pad with its velro facing forward. It does not face my mouth but is off to the side. It works very well and you don't fiddle with the boom every time you raise or lower the chin bar. I sent pictures to Rev Zilla and Sena but neither seemed very interrested saying they always use the boom mic but I couldn't get it to work to my satisfaction. I'm in South America til mid march but could send pictures then if you'd like Feb 23, 2014

Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Hovo: You should have no problem charging it from a wall wart adaptor.
If you plug it into a computer it may also charge but slower as most computers supply 5V at 500mA, you wont damage the computer or the device by trying this out. If anything the computer will give you a warning that you are drawing too much power from the port (though this is unlikely).
A 2A charger could charge it faster if the internal charger will allow this high flow of current.

So in short, any 5V usb socket will charge this unit.

Gene H: I don't know about the R since I don't have one but when I went to replace one of my SMH-10 clamps I thought the only advantage to the r was the lower profile, yet the parts are moved to the back of the helmet, and the mic is also a separate piece, so I really do not see any advantage. I like the jog dial easy to use even with bulky winter gloves and the boom mic integrated into the clamp kit make s things tidy.

Thomas L: If the half helmet has removable padding it would be done the same way as with a full face. Take off the padding, mount the speakers next to where the ears will fall and snake the wires such that they are under the padding when you put it back.

Charles C: Unfortunately, from my experience the answer would be no. I have three different styles of clamps, boom mike (for open face), universal (for full face) which one of two different supplied mikes can be used with proprietary connectors (but not a 3.5 jack), and an earbud clamp which does have a 3.5 female output jack for your own ear buds instead of speakers. Sena may have something else available but of the three I have there is no female 3.5 input for an external mike. Oct 19, 2013

A shopper asked: Will the SMH-10 work with my Zumo 665 and Evo 4G ???? Oct 24, 2011
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Ihavetomakeupanickname: You can get half the answer without a SMH-10. Trying Bluetooth pairing your Zumo 665 and Evo 4G if that works you are over half way there. The recommend pairing to is a "star" pattern off the Zumo. So the next step is to pair the SMH-10 with the Zumo. I have the "Sena SMH-10 Bluetooth Headset Version 2.0" and a Zumo 660 paired without any problems. Of note is that the "SHM-10 v2.0" can have software updates performed by the owner after purchase. I had the "3.0" software as shipped and I have just applied the "3.2" software. Both worked with the Zumo 660 at its latest software version. If you have the earlier non "2.0" version of the Zumo, I do not know if there are any issues. Nov 21, 2011

Alfred Z: I do recommend it. Its call answering sound is very good. I listen to music all the time with it and I'm very satisfied with the sound quality. If you're a audio file you might disagree. But I have used headphones inside the helmet and they made my ears hurt after a while. the battery life could be better if you are doing a all day ride. but i solve that problem by always packing a small cell phone backup battery.the intercom distance is a half mile line of sight only. If there are trees or mountains you won't get the same range. Good luck I've been very happy with sena. Sep 2, 2014

I also learned that you can operate Siri on an iPhone with a push of the phone button on the headset and use verbal commands to make a call or send a text. I'm totally happy with the unit!

Peter F: You can indeed plug your iPod Classic into a Sena SMH-10 Bluetooth Headset. Simply use a cable from your headphone jack to the port on the back of the Sena microphone mount. It's covered with a weatherproof flap so you won't get moisture into the mount.
I use this exact configuration for my co-rider, allowing her to listen to music and audiobooks from her iPhone while I listen to whatever I want to.
It makes for a much more comfortable and congenial ride, especially over long distances.

A shopper asked: I'm wondering how I would initiate a conversation?
I'm very comfortable using FRS/GMRS radios with a PTT switch on the handle bar. I would not want to have the mic always open. Is it a tap of the jog dial and then the conversation is open for a select period of time? can you disable VOX?

Neither my wife nor I want to hear the other one singing while we ride our own rides. We each have our own bikes and very different taste in music.
Jun 2, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Peter F: You can disable VOX when you have the SMH-10 plugged into your computer and have the Sena Bluetooth Device Manager program open. This is the same program used to update the firmware in your SMH-10.
You'll see a tab for device settings, one of which is to turn VOX on / off.
If you leave it off, initiating a conversation only takes a tap of the jog dial. That link then stays open as long as someone is talking. It will disconnect automatically after about 10-15 seconds of silence.

MARK A: Everything you will need is there. It is a very complete set up. There is a helmet clamp for most standard applications and there is also a "peel and stick" mount, included, that is very slightly thinner. I use the clamp for the added security. The only additional option you might purchase is the ear bud kit. It shows you to use ear buds of your choice. I like this for the noise canceling aspect. I find I can run at a lower level of volume but get higher quality sound. I hope this has helped you. I really enjoy my set. Apr 29, 2014

I would prefer the larger control dial on the SMH-10 but will it fir the RF-1200?
Otherwise, I'll get the SMH-10R and use the sticky pads and deal with the smaller controls.

Any advice or opinions? Thanks!

Nicholas A: I recently purchased the SMH-10 and it mounted beautifully on my Shoei GT Air. I would expect that you will have no problem mounting it on the RF1200. Shoei has the ear pad area designed with Bluetooth in mind, the speakers fit perfectly and the install was easy. The big jog dial is a huge plus, super easy to use even with gloved hands. I previously had a cardo unit with buttons only and there is literally no comparison. The larger jog dial makes it much easier and quicker to use. Less distracting/fiddling = greater safety.

Richard B: Greetings :o) I have mine mounted to a Shoei RF1000 just like the one described in the video. Sadly, I'm not familiar with the HJC, but the easiest way to check would be to take a look at the bottom of the helmet just below where your ear would be located. (The unit is intended to reside on the left side) The SMH-10 is a "clamp" design intended to clip onto the outer shell of the helmet. If you can separate the inner liner (i.e. padding and such) from the outer hard shell of the helmet at the bottom, you will most likely be able to clip the bluetooth unit to your HJC. The clip will fit over most helmet shells with no problem. Another thing to check is that there is sufficient "pocket space" in the helmet padding where your ears are located in order to stow the ear speakers, which are approximately 1/4 inches thick and about the size of a fifty-cent piece. The wiring can be easily stowed into the creases of the interior padding with little trouble. A neat little trick is that tiny pieces of velcro can be utilized to secure the wires as it often will stick to helmet lining :o) Just be sure that it won't chafe your skin when wearing the helmet. As for operation, the headset works great. It integrates seamlessly with my iPhone and I can use Siri to call, text, get directions and such through voice commands. In my opinion, it's a great product. I hope that this helps :o) Feb 19, 2014

Cris L: I'm not sure which helmets the unit will fit but the clamping system is very universal. So far they have ever helmet I've placed them on. I have two units but have bought additional mounts so I can move them to different helmets. We used these units on a two month trip to Alaska and the unit worked great. Really liked the ability to coach my son through the ride. They were invaluable a few times. We were In a hail storm and cars were parked all over the road we talked our way through the traffic. We have had a minor challenge getting them to disconnect so my son could go back to his music. My unit is the first generation and probably should be upgraded. the battery life was great and easy to charge from the bikes since we were camping. Good Luck Cris Feb 18, 2014

RevZilla: The Sena SMH10 does support 4 way conference call style communication. As long as you have 4 Sena SMH10 units paired together you can speak with everyone at once, which would be exactly what you would be doing if 4 people were in one room and talking to each other. Also, the button clicking can be a little overwhelming at first, but once you ride with the unit for a couple hours it becomes almost second nature. You can even practice while sitting at home, just so you don't get distracted while riding with the unit for the first time. Mar 20, 2013

C.: Wimth the Sean, you wouldnt use your earbuds or the cord attached mic. The Sena is bluetooth - just pair your device (phone, ipod, etc) to the Sena snd everything will then work through your helmet - speakers (small disks that mount via velcro in your helmet) and the Sena boom mic. I use my Sena for bike to bike communication and also have it paired bia bluetooth with my iphone which I keep in the small underseat storage area. If I get a phone call ehile I am also talking to the other bike I am riding with, I just tap the button on Sena and I can answer the phone call; after phone call, I just tap the button again to hang up and tap again to resume talking to other bike riding companion or tap to listen to ipod music etc. After a few minutes of playing with Sena, you find it is super easy to use.

Mike B: Been a while since I bought mine so I am not recalling if all models have a jack, and my model has a jack for me to plug in my own earphones. it is a 3.5mm stereo "mini" plug style. If you plug in a lead that acts as an audio source for your stereo, instead of headphones, you will be able to have the audio signal come out of your stereo speakers. ANY time you have a speaker and microphone near one another you could get feedback, headphones make that impossible, your setup probably won't do that, and if it does, turn down the speaker volume, that should solve it. Not saying you will get feedback, just a tip in case you do. BTW, I love my Sena!! Sep 6, 2014

RevZilla: For installation on a Scorpion EXO-900, the standard SMH-10 may not be the best option due to its fixed boom microphone that could interfere with the chin bar operation. The SMH-10-11 has a wired boom microphone that can be mounted internally with its base between the cheekpad and inner shell. This would allow you greater flexibility with the location of the Bluetooth unit itself and better microphone performance with or without the EXO-900's modular chin bar. Oct 23, 2012

A shopper asked: And will it scratch the side of the helmet were it mounts? How is the audio quality of the speakers given the Bell Star has a lot of wind noise meaning, will ill still be able to hear the music properly? Oct 5, 2012
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
RevZilla: The SMH10 should mount to a post 2010 Bell Star with no problem (we haven't installed on at pre-'10 to know for sure). The clamp for the unit itself has foam rubber pads so as to not mar the finish of the helmet. We find the SMH-10 speakers to be among the best available for Bluetooth devices. While helmet noise and sufficient speaker volume is highly subjective, our experience with this and other devices used on a Bell Star indicate that the speakers do a decent job of drowning out wind noise. The more wind protection you have (e.g. fairings, windscreens, helmets, etc.) the better you will experience the SMH-10's sound quality. Oct 5, 2012

Sean M: I have the bell star and I have no problems with hearing anything. I have to turn down the music because it can be soo clear and loud. WHen i receive a phone call is when i really have to turn the device down. I've asked everyone who called me while i was riding if they can hear my bike and any other noises. They all said no.

A shopper asked: The radio has Bluetooth capability for pairing with an external boom headset. It also has VOX capability. The radio is made for a motorcycle and comes with intercom, AM/FM, PA, Weather, and 2mtr-440 Ham capability. Sep 9, 2012

RevZilla: While we believe that the SMH10 should be able to pair to this device without any issues, we would recommend checking with Yaesu to find out exactly what Bluetooth Profiles their device will support (at the moment their website does not provide much information about Bluetooth abilities, other than that they have some Bluetooth accessories coming soon). Generally though, almost any device that supports a connection to a Bluetooth headset will work with the SMH10. For example, the GARMIN GPS systems that are made for cars do not support a connection to a Bluetooth Headset, which is why they do not work with the SMH10 even though they have a Bluetooth ability that will work with other devices (IE, not all Bluetooth is the same). Additionally, there are some newer GARMIN GPS systems for cars that support audio only to a Bluetooth Headset, and these will not allow all the features of the SMH10 to work properly either. However, the GARMIN Zumo GPS systems have all the appropriate profiles to support a feature rich headset, which is why they do work with the SMH10. Sep 11, 2012

RevZilla: You will not be able to clamp the Sena SMH-10 to your helmet without doing modifications, and you will have to use the Sena SMH-10 Helmet Clamp Kit - Attachable Boom and Wired Microphone. You will have the same issue if you try to install the Sena SMH-10 on your Schuberth C3 as these two devices have to be installed the exact same way. Jul 10, 2012

MikeR: That is what I have. A Schuberth C3. The Sena clamped on without a problem. I did order the clamp set for ear buds because the speaker quality is just ok. With the ear bud i get great sound and noise reduction. Also no problem with the boom mic. Nov 5, 2012

A shopper asked: Will the unit fit in a Nolan N-90? My old Autocom speakers would not fit in my Nolan N-90. Also there is not a lot of room for the microphone between my chin and the chin bar. Apr 30, 2012
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
ihsan o: well, this won't fit "IN" anything. my friend has Nolan N90 and he actually has the nolan bluetooth kit installed as well. but after using the sena he fell in love with the jog dial and bought it and istalled it "on top of" the Nolan bluetooth kit. please note that sena installs on a clamp kit, which clamps on to your helmet on the outside. nolan's proprietary bluetooth kit installs into the cavity that's designed for it. no other kit would fit inside that groove. so it's either Nolan's kit in the groove, or put the cover on, and mount the clamp kit of sena and be on your merry way. there are tons of youtube videos that shows how the clamp kit is installed, I strongly suggest you watch those before you make up your mind.

Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
ihsan o: tested. the boom mic goes right underneath the sun visor thing. you cannot reach the visor operating thing without hitting the boom mic. it's a real hassle, but manageable if you put your heart into it :) the thing is, your heart won't fit in there when you are wearing thick winter gloves. thin gloves, summer time I think you can maneuver the visor, but with thick gloves - no way.

A shopper asked: I'm thinking of purchasing the SMH-10, but I would like for my dispatcher to be able to get a hold of me while I'm riding via the PTT/walkie talkie function on my Nextel phone. Anyone know if this works via bluetooth? Mar 24, 2012
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
ihsan o: here: if the phone can pair with a bluetooth headset that has a microphone and work nicely, then it will work with sena as well. sena is practically a glorified bluetooth headset as far as your phone is concerned. so you can test this easily. but something inside me says the PTT is not a part of the actual phone operation, it's more like a system that sits on your phone that has its own buttons and its own thing. try with a regular btooth headset which also has a microphone to test.

RevZilla: You will not be able to pair the PTT function of your Nextel i335 phone with the Sena SMH-10. The best option for you to use your PTT/walkie talkie function would be to use the Sena SR10 Bluetooth Two-Way Radio Adapter that would allow you to emit and receive radio frequency. Mar 28, 2012

Ed W: The universal unit doesn't have the microphone attached to the clamp kit. It comes with two mikes; a boom mike and a small mike for full face helmets.
You can either use the mike kit for full face helmet or the boom mike has a velcro attachment that can be affixed to other type helmets.
