Sena SMH 10 Dual Pack
I just got back from a trip around the Northeast, NY/VT/NH/ME/NH/MA/CT/NJ... roughly 1660 miles this week and the Sena SMH-10 performed virtually flawlessly this trip.

ISSUES: The only real issue was that I lost connection with the GPS, and a simple turn off/on again resolved it. I would say this happened maybe 3-4x the entire week, not a real problem in my opinion and I’m not sure if it was the Sena of the GPS unit.

TALK TIME: Sena claims that the SMH-10 has a 10 day standby and 10hrs of talk. I can confirm that the claim to 10hr of talk is inaccurate. I would say the talk and/or listen to music time is more like 20hrs. No lie. A friend and I were talking and listening to music for about 6-8hrs one day, it was in standby-mode when we stopped for gas or eating. He never charged his headset that night, and then we used the headsets again the next day for another 6-8hrs before his unit finally died. That's pretty good if you ask me. I would say with high confidence that you could easily go all day long, with music/conversation going for at least 10-12hrs easily.

RANGE/DISTANCE: The range is the biggest issue, but they did what they claimed.

The range of 900 yards is pretty accurate... that works out to just over ½-mile. We tested the 2 units to 0.4 -0.5 miles. The line of site worked great, full-duplex and incredibly clear audio, when you get to the limit around ½-mile, it starts to crackle, but when you look in your mirror, ½-mile is pretty far and unless you really get split up, you're never really that far back riding when in group formation. It truly is line of site on curvy roads, it breaks up more.

On the highway, we were testing distance, and Craig was back about 0.3 - 0.4 miles and we were fine chatting but when a tractor-trailer pulled in-between us it got spotty for a bit until he moved back to his original lane. This is my ONLY complaint about the unit, the distance, but they do say line of sight and the 900m distance, they aren't lying.

HELMETS: I wore a Nolan N-90 modular and my friend wore a full face (non-modular) on a sport bike. The units are VERY easy to install, you just need to make sure you can slip a thin 2-credit card thickness plate between the outer shell, and the inner liner, which I believe in most helmets, that is not a problem. It mounts on the LEFT side, I do not believe it would work on the right based on the boom mic pointing out the front of the unit and you do need the mic near your lips.

I did find out that the new Nolan N-104 might be an issue as they moved the inner 'fighter pilot' shield lever to the lower front of the helmet (at the bottom edge) and it may interfere with the boom mike that comes out the front of the unit. Other than that, if you helmet is like most, it should be fine.

CLARITY: At 70mph, we were carrying on a very clean/clear conversation and the music sounded great in between talking.

PHONE CALLS: Why? Phone calls, if you want, work great also. Best thing is to pair the phone, to the GPS, then the GPS to the Sena. I found it works best if you turn on your phone, then GPS and let them sync, then turn on your headset to pair to GPS. I don't want to use my phone while riding, but did and I could hear others, and they said I sounded good on the 2x I tried it. Craig did use his a few times and he said it worked great. Again, I'm riding, I don't want to talk to anyone, if it's an emergency I'll pull over.

I did talk quite a bit with the helmet flipped up and I have a fairing on my HD Road King, and non-stock pipes. At cruising speed (55-70) I could hear and be heard clear with no wind noise, and when under throttle, Craig said I was still very clear with virtually no exhaust noise.

WATER PROOF: We didn't get caught in any rain, fortunately... but, unfortunately in the fact that I can't say anything about their ruggedness and waterproof abilities.

CHARGING: It takes about 2.5hrs to fully charge them each night.

PAIRING: To pair to Senas, on both units hold the Jog Dial down for 5 seconds, they start to flash, then tap only one unit to pair them and Viola, done. After that, whenever they are near another paired unit they automatically connect and I never had any issues. Pairing the GPS is slightly different as you have to hold the phone button, once blinking then tap the Jog Shuttle. Very easy, and well explained in the manual. You can pair up to 3 other Sena units (4 total connected)

MUSIC/BOOKS: I have MP3's and Audible books on my Zumo 660 and they sounded great with one caveat.... does anyone know of a program that will make ALL audio files have the same volume? Some are much louder than others, and some are so quiet, that even at full volume on the Sena it would barely be audible. Overall, very good sound.

GPS DIRECTIONS: The Garmin voice, cuts in WAY too many times when you're talking to others, and at the most inopportune times. When she does, you lose the comm to the other Sena unit(s) until she's done and then it takes about 5 seconds for comm’s to kick back in. It gets more noticeable (aka worse) as you get closer to your turn as she cuts in at roughly 1mile, then 0.5, then 0.1, then at the turn, and finally then after telling you to go xx miles. She's a PIA. I wish there was a way you could tell the GPS to only give audible comments at say, 1mile, then only .2 miles and then again after you make your turn... or whatever your preferences are. There is no warning tone on your end, or your friend’s headset other than if you’re talking you get cut off, and after a few times, you both figure out timing. Annoying but not a deal breaker.
Pros:
-Crystal Clear sound
-Easy to Pair to GPS or other SENA units
-Full-Duplex, nothing to press to talk
-Easy to switch from Comms to Music, and back. (you can use VOX if you like, we didn't)
-Large, easy to find and use Jog Shuttle
-You can plug in MP3 music (or GPS) so you don’t lose comms, but you need wiring at that point.

Cons:
-Distance/Range. I just wish the range was more like 1 mile, regardless of line of site, but it is Bluetooth, and it does exactly what they claim.
-The random (maybe 3-4x all week) BT disconnect to the GPS (not a deal breaker)
-Can only connect 4 units at once unlike FRS/CB (but those are not full-duplex). Others can do up to 8 units at 1 mile but are 2x the price and as Bluetooth evolves, so will the units.

Not a Con against GPS or SENA, but they really need to standard the Bluetooth format so you can talk to other brands, like CB or FRS. It's BS in my mind that only SENA can talk to other SENA units, etc. If they make it uniform and you can use Sena to talk to other manufacturers units and that would be awesome!

That's my report and I would not hesitate recommending these to anyone!

Not exactly trouble free...
I bought this mostly for the ability to answer phone calls while riding. I did also use it on a 2000 mile trip this past summer. For starters, I had a hard time loading the latest firmware into the unit which SENA suggests you do before use. The software would not recognize either unit. After swapping cords multiple times I was able to get the firmware upgrade done. I have recently checked for new updates and again, I can't get the software to recognize either unit so I gave up. The helmet mount is so temperamental to screw tightness. If the screws are too loose the mic won't work, if screws are too tight, the mic won't work. I have also not been successful in getting the voice activated intercom to work. Every time I want to start an intercom conversation I need to press the jog dial. The instructions claim you can speak any word loudly to activate, that does not work. As for being able to answer and make phone calls. That feature works good when the mic is actually working. Last time I tried to use that feature the mic wasn't working so I couldn't call out using the voice activation. I had a call come in, once I answered it the caller couldn't hear me due to the mic not working. The unit has SO much potential to be great but they need to iron the bugs out of it. I feel like I'm part of their R&D dept.

Not Perfect, but better than most
I held of reviewing this product until I had used it for a couple weeks so after about 800 miles on the road using the unit here is what I think.

The units themselves are easy to use, easy to install, and easy to upgrade the firmware.....I have read several reviews where people were complaining about difficulty upgrading the firmware and either they are "techtarded" or their computer must be ancient because when I did it I experienced ZERO difficulty....just download the software, install it on your computer (I use a Mac so for my fellow Mac users YES there is a Mac version of the software) and click upgrade then wait a few minutes and BAM it is done. Also worth mentioning I used the unit before and after I upgraded the firmware and I did notice that the upgrade seemed to have an impact on performance....the unit seemed to do everything a little faster as well as an improvement in sound quality.

The Speakers:
Speaker placement is absolutely crucial. Make sure the speakers rest right over your ears and are not cockeyed and make sure both speakers are over your ear the same way. If you do not get them aligned properly the result is that one side is going to sound louder than the other when you are listening to music. Which I think is annoying as can be! I had to adjust my speakers several times till they were in the right spot but once you have them in the correct place they sound phenomenal!

The downside.....there is little or no bass in the speakers, but again all systems are like that. Several times while using the system it has actually been a bit painful to answer a phone call and get someone blasting in your ear and it is all treble....so my advice is watch the volume if you don't want to end up deaf! I've been up to 100MPH on my bike and could still hear my music over the wind noise and the loud pipes on my Harley. Did it sound crystal clear??? HECK NO! Could I hear it though? YES I could! Any system you buy is going to have sound issues at speeds over 70MPH that is just the nature of riding a bike...if you want crystal clear audio with tons of bass and zero wind noise then stick to driving your car because you will never get that in a helmet I promise....nuff said.

One last thing to mention about the speakers....having an intercom conversation and a phone conversation sound completely different when sound quality is concerned. My wife and I are able to have an intercom session while riding at highway speeds of 70 to 80 MPH with little static and an extreme amount of clarity in the sound.....however when I call her on the phone and I am riding that fast for some odd reason the quality is degraded noticeably on my end. Unfortunately I have not been able to determine if this is an issue with the headset itself, or an issue with my carrier(Verizon), or lastly an issue with my phone(iPhone4).

The Intercom:
By far, in my opinion, the stand out feature of this system is the intercom. My wife and I have been absolutely blown away at how nice it is having the ability to speak with one another while riding....while we have become great at communicating via hand signals having the ability to speak to each other is just flat out awesome.

I had reservations at first about having her in my ear the whole trip, or vice versa, but it has truly been a blessing. To talk about our ride while we are taking it rather than recap what we saw at each gas stop and at the end of the ride is pretty cool....literally we take rides together now sharing the experience rather than each of us drifting off into our own world as we did before. For any other couples that ride together I highly suggest buying this system just for that purpose.

The Microphone:
The microphone on the Sena is AMAZING!!! When I am talking to my wife I hear nothing but her voice in my ear (via the intercom)....no wind, no bike noise, NOTHING!!!!! I have received phone calls on the road at 70MPH and no one on the other end had a clue I was on my bike.....believe what others have said.... the mic really is that good.

One piece of advice, use the included mic sock. I attempted to not use mine because I did not want that piece of foam rubbing on my face while I was riding but there is a noticeable difference in noise cancellation with it off....mainly with wind noise as without the wind sock you start to hear some wind whistle on the other end.

The Jog Dial:
Here is a feature that I am both impressed with but disappointed in at the same time.

As far as ease of use the jog dial is wicked cool. Turn the dial for volume control, press and hold to start music, press once quickly to start an intercom session, press and rotate to skip songs.....it is that simple!

Several people have complained that the controls on these units are difficult to use and to be honest I don't understand that at all....you will need to read the manual and memorize some button combinations, but once you learn what to press and when it is easy peasy to find them on the road even with gloves on.

The downside to the jog dial, and maybe I am the only one having this issue, is that several times in high wind the dial has started to move and in the process it will make the volume start to creep up in my ear. Also I wear hoodies while I am riding and my hood has bumped the dial and turned my music off.

My jog dial seems to be UBER sensitive and my wife has not had that issue, however my wife does not use her for listening to music her experience has only been via the intercom or phone calls.

Installation:
Installing the speakers is pretty easy, I made it a little more difficult because I wanted to really hide all the wires on our helmets but even then it only took me about 15 minutes per helmet.

Only piece of advice I have on the installation is that if you use the 3M tape pads be extremely careful if you ever have to separate the speakers from the 3M pads. The speakers attach to the pads using velcro but I swear the velcro is made of super glue! LOL When I removed one of the speakers the velcro was attached so well that it actually started to pull the back side of the speaker off. And the 3M tape adheres like no other. So if you have to use the 3M I would suggest making darn sure you find where you want the speakers to be BEFORE you place the sticky stuff inside your helmet.

Tech Issues:
Now I have to be the bearer of bad news and point out that despite the fact the Sena blows other units out of the water it is not without it's issues. Biggest issue is the way it attaches to the helmet clamp. The pod has 12 pins on the back of it that match up to 12 little receiver plates on the microphone clamp unit that attaches to the helmet. If the pins do not match up to the receiver in perfect alignment you will start to have some serious issues with the unit.

Mine was jacked up straight out of the box. Since we ordered the dual pack I knew something was not right as one unit worked great but the other was messing up. The problems I noticed pertained to the sound through the speakers as well as the unit not controlling my iPhone the way it should. I emailed Revzilla (who by the way are the gods of customer service) and they told me to send the unit back for a replacement. The second pod I received worked fine.

Second tech issue has to do with taking or making phone calls while listening to music. Normally when you are jamming to tunes and take or make a call the unit shuts off your music and then when you end the call the music starts up again. Several times when I have tried to make a call or take a call it has not done that but rather I hear the call and my music is playing in the background.....kinda like a soundtrack for your phone call! LOL This has only happened a couple times though so while it does happen, and it is worth mentioning, it is for the most part a non-issue.

Third tech issue is the VOX (voice activation). I only have the VOX activated to assist me in making phone calls....for the most part it works flawlessly but occasionally it is either slow, or just does not work at all! If you use the VOX the key word is patience.

Fourth tech issue is those darn pins I mentioned earlier. Anytime you attach the pod to the microphone clamp be EXTREMELY careful! Make absolutely sure that you seat the pod all the way in before you snap it into place. If you don't get the thing aligned just right it will wreak havoc on your system. My advice is clip the thing in place when you first get it and leave the thing alone....lol

Final note:
I would highly recommend this system but If you do not have patience for technology, or you are "techtarded", this is not the system for you. The Sena is a system with some quirks, but every system is like that and the quirks with the Sena are all things that are minor or can be avoided. If you receive yours and it is not functioning properly before you give up one Sena I suggest having another unit sent to you and see if you have better luck. I was told that many of the units are messed up right out of the box and it all stems from those pins I spoke of earlier. However, the same person told me that when you get one that works it will work a long, long time with no issues....so if you get one of the lemons don't give up!

While it is a gamble as to whether yours will work out of the box or not once you get one that doesn't have the issue with those pins then you are golden.....while normally a product that was this hit and miss would be something I tell people to avoid in this case I say just be patient and persistent until you receive a unit that works. The pros of this system far outweigh the cons and in the long run you will be glad you stuck it out.

So easy to install and use with BMW K1600GTL
After easy FIRMWARE update from Sena, It paired with BMW k1600GTL, NAV IV GPS, and Galaxy note 2 without any problems. It sounds great with onboard sound system and attached to my Shoei Neotec without any installation problems. I would recommend this product to all BMW riders using onboard bluetooth system.

A headset you won't want to ride without!
I have had my SMH-10 dual headsets for about 2-3 years now. They still function perfectly and still hold a heck of a great charge! I can connect to my cell phone and play music whenever I want and there are no cords to run to my backpack or my jacket. This was the best investment I have ever made to my helmet or my riding gear. It is very easy to chat with the person on intercom and the mic has little wind noise/feedback on full face helmets (Shoei & Bell). I wouldn't go with any other brand. It is also very easy to update the firmware from Sena on this unit. I find the unit easy to work with race gloves on and that is a plus. I don't want to take my mind off of driving or watching traffic at a light to play around with trying to change songs or respond on the intercom. You don't have to with the SMH-10D. If you are considering getting an intercom system, you can't go wrong with the Sena. I would recommend this unit to anyone. Plus, if you have a Bell helmet, the pockets in the helmet are a perfect fit for the Sena speakers. It doesn't get any easier than that to install!

No more quiet rides with my wife
I had been thinking about purchasing this system for a year and finally pulled the trigger. RevZilla had it at my house within a week and I put it on my helmet (Shoei RF1100) in a matter of minutes. I didn't need to alter much on the helmet just cut a little plastic so the wires could go behind the padding. It took a little more effort and thought to put it on my wife's helmet (Vemar VSREV), but that was primarily because it didn't come with a recessed and designated place for the speakers.
We did the obligatory walk around the house with the helmets on and they worked perfectly.
We took them out on our first ride the other night and they again worked great. Push to talk dial is extremely easy to find and use while driving. Sound quality was good even at 75mph, but started to fade a bit if we went faster. We used the hard wire to attach a Zune player and it worked fine for both of us using a splitter. Push the dial and it pauses the music so we can talk. Push it again and the music resumes. Haven't tried to sync it with my cell phone nor am I going to, I need to keep some peace and quiet while riding.

Amazing technology
It was a little tricky to mount the main unit on my Shoei RF 1200 because of the side cut out, but just keep at it and it clamps on quite well.
Use the little pads behind the speakers to bring the closer to your ears.
The RF has too much low frequency wind noise to hear the speakers at over about 50mph so ear plugs actually make it easier to hear. The foam ones block too much sound (too high a dB rating) so I'm using those silicone flanged units and at full volume, I can hear quite well. Still looking for ear plugs with a lower dB rating to improve this.
The clarity of the phone is what truly amazes. I have yet to have anyone mention any background noise- even at 80mph. My buddy hasn't installed his yet so I haven't worked the intercom but if it is similar to the rest, it will be great.
Other commenters complain of not enough bass to hear their Metallica at head banging volumes, but it occurs to me that that probably isn't a good idea anyway.
Unit appears to be very sturdy, but I've only had it about a month and haven't really put it to the test. Haven't dropped it or ridden in the rain yet. That's why I didn't rate it for durability.
I'm not sure how much better the 20S model could be, but the SMH-10 is now a real bargain.

Excellent Communication Device! Just love it...
I am a passenger on my husband’s HD Road King, just got my motorcycle license last week and will be ridding my own motorcycle soon! We got this product for various reasons,1. To communicate with each other while riding, 2. To listen to music while on the road and 3. To be able to answer our phone while on the road if our kids have an emergency. We are extremely happy with the customer service at Revzilla. With this said, I will add that we are also very happy with the product itself. The Sena SMH-10 Bluetooth Headset Dual Pack is a great value. The intercom feature is great, there is some noise while in use but expected from this kind of device. The Bluetooth feature works great and music sound is excellent via Bluetooth and via cable as well. The pairing and connection were very easy out of the box. One of my questions was if the two units were able to connect to 1 iPod touch at the same time, and the answer is yes. I was able to connect both units to my iPod and my husband and I can both listen to the same music from my Ipod at the same time. Please note that I did not buy any other device in order to communicate to the same music player at the same time.

Excellent product
I bought these for my Bell Mag-9 Rally Helmets and they installed in a flash. It took me longer to watch the install videos on YouTube than it did to actually install them. They are perfectly solid when mounted Sound is good but you need to find the sweet spot for the speakers. Wind noise can be a problem on the mic with the shield up but acceptable.
Over top notch product. Especially now they're half price giveaway prices !

This is a must have communicator system
If you want to enjoy your music player and listen to your GPS navigation and talk on the phone while riding… then get this unit. I bought the combo pack so that my wife and I can communicate while riding. the speakers are loud and clear. At least you can concentrate on your ride while you GPS speaks to you with turn by turn directions.

I did my research on all bluetooth devices out there and I decided this was that best unit for me.

I notice some people prefer to look at their GPS screens with no audio while riding please do not do that as it's not safe, all it takes is that moment of distraction because you are trying to figure out which exit or turn to take and when on a motorcycle you can easily cross over to the wrong lane and get hit by another vehicle (this almost happened to me once but thank Jesus there wasn't a car on the next lane) do the right thing and save your family the pain.

I will be buying the new version made for Half helmets due to be out in a month so that I can use it when the weather is hot.

My old communication system is about 10 years old and it's hard to find anything for it so I thought it was time to get a new one. And all the reviews were great.

research shows that it is a good product. I am getting ready to leave on a 4500 mile ride that starts 3000 miles from home and I want to stay connected.
nobatterybox on May 14, 2016
Wanted an intercom for myself and my riding partner. The bluetooth connectivity is excellent and the device is simple to set up, install and use. It does not pair with an automotive style gps but the manual is clear about that. I use my phone for gps and it works seamlessly. You can connect up to four riders with this unit but it isn't a conference call. You can also connect with non Sena sets. A lot of wind noise through the mic. Good value for the money

Didn't know there was a specific Bell SMH10 kit. Sounds like an easy fix with the Bell clamp kit.

Because it FITS with the Bell Mag 9 Sena helmet flawlessly - and because of the great reviews!!

You have two products available on your website, the "Sena SMH-10 Bluetooth Headset Dual Pack" (SMH10D-10) ($284.95) and the "Sena SMH10 Universal Bluetooth Headset Dual Pack" (SMH10D-11) ($269.95). Can you explain the difference?
Thank you.
Steve A on Mar 12, 2014
BEST ANSWER: the difference is that one pack has the microphone attached to it and the other not it depends for what kind of helmet you want it
Can this be used for both open face helmet and half helmet? Is switching between helmets easy?
A shopper on Dec 3, 2013
BEST ANSWER: For a open face full helmet I'd generally say yes. Installation would probably be the same as a full face helmet which I installed it on. Installation entails securing the main unit via two hex screws to the bottom shell of the helmet, then running the speaker wires under the padding. It's helpful if the padding is removable. With a half helmet the securing would be the same, and running the wires would likely be similar, however the installing of the speakers would mean securing them to the webbing of the half helmet. A type of supplied hook and loop tape is used on the speakers. I believe it's going to be dependent as to whether the neck skirt is permanently left on or the ear webbing design allows adhesion of the speakers. Wind noise would definitely be a factor. On a full helmet this product is great.
Me and my wife have different music tastes. Can we listed to different music by pairing to our own iphone's? but still be able to speak with each other while riding?
A shopper on Jun 9, 2012
BEST ANSWER: Yes.
in fact the way it works, each person needs there own music source.

Most people just pair it with there phone, then play music on your phone.
Or you can selective pair with your phone (for telephone use) and a separate Bluetooth MP3 player.

99% of all external devices (phone or mp3 players) will only pair with 1 headset.
Will Sena units pair up with non-Sena Bluetooth units as I ride with several different groups?
A shopper on Feb 4, 2014
BEST ANSWER: This is possible now via frimware 5.0
Hi,

Would like to know if the Sena SMH10 Boom Microphone attached to unit will fit a Shark Evoline 3 helmet?

Or, do I need the Universal Microphone kit

Thanks,
Paul
A shopper on Jan 7, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I have my Sena SMH installed in two helmets AGV, but I did installed a Cardo system in one Shark Evoline and I'm sure the Sena SMH will fit perfectly. You do not need the Universal Microphone unit.
Regards,
Douglas
Do they work with victory sena dongle?
A shopper on Feb 14, 2016
does the Sena SMH 10 come with a charger or do i need to purchase it seperatly??
A shopper on Aug 19, 2013
BEST ANSWER: it comes with a usb cable for charging and for firmware updates. but that won't let you charge from a 110 outlet (wall outlet) you will have to plug it into your computer or get a device that you can plug into the 110 outlet that will provide power to a usb cable. I use the little one for my phone (I have an iPhone) or just plug it into my computer. Their are two of these cables, one for each headset.
Is this unit waterproof at all, or does it have to come off when it rains?
A shopper on Dec 18, 2011
BEST ANSWER: We bought the 2-unit set. One performed flawlessly in a rainstorm while the other one had a lot of static and squealed so bad that my partner had to turn his unit completely off. We switched main units but he still heard static and loud squealing. I didn't. We guessed that it must have been the microphone helmet clamp unit on his helmet that was causing the problem. We both wear 3/4 helmets and both of us had our visors down at the time. Once his helmet and Sena equipment dried out later in the day it returned to working just fine. We haven't tried the units in the rain since that time.
Can 3 separate riders connect to each other concurrently. I understand rider and pillion should not have any issues but I am looking at communicating with at least 3 riders at the same time (incl. myself, ie. a to b,c, b to a,c and c to a,b)
A shopper on Sep 12, 2011
BEST ANSWER: With the most recent firmware update (3.3), you can now conference-intercom three riders together. It seems a little awkward, and I haven't tried it yet so I can't comment on how well it works. The manual has been updated to describe the process. It sounds like A initiates an intercom call to B, then C has to intercom to A or B and he is conferenced in. I would prefer a default conference option, where all three riders would be included automatically when an intercom is open. But I can see where this wouldn't work in a four-rider set-up, so maybe it's best this way. Also, it disconnects all three riders' cell-phone connections during the conference, reconnecting automatically after the intercom closes.

Note that it may be awhile before the units shipped from RevZilla have 3.3 installed, so you will probably have to update the firmware through the Sena website.
Do you HAVE TO be connected to Bluetooth to use the intercom to speak to your passenger?
Carter T on Nov 6, 2013
BEST ANSWER: The intercom is "Bluetooth" technology. All you have to do is have the units turned on and paired to each other per the instructions and you are talking clearly to your passenger or to your other rider on another bike. I have done both and it is crystal clear. Make sure the microphones are in the right position and out of the wind. It paired easily with iPhone for music or calls. The install and instructions were straight forward.
