Works on Half-Helmet (Shorty)
I have been looking for a communication system that my wife and I could use when riding separately or when she rides with me. My wife wears a Harley-Davidson half-helmet and the regular Sena systems made for half-helmets would not work due to the helmet strap not being a "Y" shape around the ear. The boom microphone on the Sena SMH-10 reaches and fit perfectly on my wife's helmet. I purchased a set of speaker pockets from Harley-Davidson (Communication Pouches) that slip between the helmet and liner. The speakers slip into the pockets and my wife was able to hear perfectly. I installed my Sena on a HJC 3/4 helmet, which had built-in "cavities" for speakers. I too, can hear very clearly when we talk. At speeds of 50 m.p.h. and up, there was some wind noise, but that could be due to the fact that is was very windy out the day we tried them out. I was on my 2016 Harley-Davidson Ultra Limited, which blocks a lot of wind, and my wife was on her 2015 Harley-Davidson Street 750 with a windshield. None the less, I was delighted that we could communicate with each other while riding instead of waiting for a stop sign or stop light. Besides being able to talk, it's nice for warning each other about dangers too - "Watch the car coming up that is trying to make a left turn". or "There is a big pothole in the road ahead." The intercom is not perfect, but again, I was very happy with how it worked, the ease of installation, and so on. Still learning how to operate all the other features that come with it - phone, music, etc. I'm just happy that I can talk to my wife while riding.
I included a picture of my wife's helmet just in case someone is interested in a half-helmet installation. The speaker pouches were purchased at a local Harley-Davidson dealership for $25. Nothing special to install them.

So far it's good
Installation was pretty easy. Just follow instructions. Gonna be a little different for different helmets obviously.
I have only used it once so far out riding (dual sporting). It paired up to my phone and I listened to music (which was awesome). Tried "paring" it to my buddy who has a SMH5. We couldn't get it. Not sure who's fault it was (I had the provided instructions with me. Kinda hard to understand how exactly to do it. Just shows pairing with other 10's. Probably didn't work cause we are dumb). But the music sounded great. I would recommend turning the volume on your phone all the way up and adjusting the level you want with the unit. Haven't tried using the phone for calling or anything yet.
Planning on a big ride coming up with some buddies that have the same unit so we shall see if we can all communicate then.

This is a perfect addition to a new helmet. Recently bought a Bell mx 9 Adv helmet and added the Sena for Communication and music abilities. What a great product. Easy install.

Best Motorcycle Intercomm So Far
This is actually the third Sena SMH-10 I have purchased so far. My wife and I use a pair of them when we ride our motorcycles and I decided to get another one for when we ride with a friend. We find them to be easy to use, reliable, and that they have good sound quality. They also have excellent battery endurance on a full charge - around 10 hours or more. I have found that the clamp on model with the boom mike can be made to fit on almost any kind of helmet from full-face to half-helmet.

A great solution to your motorcycling audio needs!
I mainly purchased this for the ability to listen to music and accept phone calls while on my bike, but I do plan on using the intercom features in the near future.
The sound is very good, even at highway speeds. This assumes you do what I didn't immediately: figure out where your ears sit in the helmet and don't guess. When they are in the right spot, it sounds fantastic.
Phone calls work amazingly well; at highway speeds the person on the other end said I sounded like I'm sitting in a room somewhere. Very clear. Same with using voice commands through the phone with it, works every time.

I highly recomend.
It is very easy to install and for the price range you get all the basic things wanted in a Bluetooth headset. Decent sound quality and very durable. I have road in very heavy rain and cold temperatures and it works without a problem. Very good first timer headset.

Nice, not easy to install in all the helmets
the headphones are not really comfortable, depending of the helmet is difficult to get a right position and not feel uncomfortable with it
