Sena SMH-10 Bluetooth Headset Dual Pack
Installation straight forward, takes a bit of training to use, not intuitive
Installation was straight forward, the instructions were accurate and complete. The controls are not that intuitive and do require some practice, OFF the bike.
Syncing with other SENA devices for intercomm is still hit or miss. Not enough positive indication that syncing in in progress, other than beeping.
Just needs practice to get it right.
Speakers are terrible, forget listening to music at high speed, voice is just okay, can be clippy.
Also needs a "bail out" sensitivity for out of range devices. The device tries too hard to maintain the connection with out of range devices, needs to automatically drop the audio while searching for devices with poor connections, should reconnect automatically when the signal has improved. Seems like an obvious hardware feature, IMHO.

Great product in general. I am very satisfied
The bluetooth headset works really good. It is very easy to install and it is easy to pair with my bluetooth devices too.
Buttons are easy to find and operate even while ridding or using gloves.
Everything has a good quality and works really well. I would like to have a little bit more volume on the speakers but it is enough to make calls, listen to music or intercom.

I've had this product for over 4 months now and I really love it. I use it every day! The best story I have for this is one day I was heading home from work and my boss called me just as I was getting on my bike. I mentioned that I was just getting on my bike, and she must have thought was just standing around talking to her because after our 10 minute long conversation she said "Well I better let you go so you can head home". She had no idea I was already heading down the freeway at 80 mph (I live in Utah, so the speed limits are a little higher out here). Of course I didn't bother to correct her and just said "OK Bye!" with a hug grin on my face.
The only trouble I've with this isn't really a problem with the SMH-10 as it was a trick with my phone. I've used this on both and iphone 5 and samsung s6, and both have had this issue. The issue is the phones have different volume levels for each output device (speaker, headphone and bluetooth). So if you crank you volume up and then connect the phone the volume isn't cranked up, which leaves the volume limited. Once I figured out I need to connect the phone, then set the volume on the phone to the max so I could have full volume control with the jog dial everything made sense. Also, another tip is wear ear plugs. I actually found I could understand conversations better and listen at a lower volume with a pair of ear plugs in (I just use the moldex bullets).
I do wish the speakers had more low end, but overall I've very happy.

About what you would expect.
I bought these because my SO is just learning to ride a motorcycle and thought they would be handy so we can communicate. Installation is super easy, and it doesn't take up much space or catch the wind. Sound quality isn't amazing, I think the only way to truly have perfect sound would be to use these with earbuds. I get a lot of wind noise in my helmet due to where my windscreen throws the wind and sometimes its difficult to hear the headphones. The best way to combat this is with earplugs, they help drown out the wind noise so you can hear the headphones clearer. My next step is getting a taller windscreen so I clear out even more wind noise. The controls are super easy to use, Siri works well, the mic does a great job of clearing out unwanted noise and just picking up your voice. I love mine, I can listen to tunes, talk to people, get directions, I can share my music with my SO when we ride together. Upgrades are pretty easy and straightforward.

Simple and easy to use
I've been using it for a couple months now, and like it a lot.
Gets a little noisy with the wind from the other set when using the intercom. Besides that is good. Can share music, talk, make phone calls, GPS from cell phone guides you through the speakers...
When paired with my friend's cardo his cell phone got unpaired. worked well besides that

Received the SMH10 (dual) from Revzilla 3 days after placing order. Easy install on 3/4 helmet. Pairing with iPhone is simple. Music quality is great and intercom is fantastic. Made a few test calls and everyone I called said that they could not tell I was on motorcycle - even at highway speeds. (Streetglide) this product is a must for any 2 up riders. No more shouting to communicate, simply press the jog button and talk. The music sharing feature is awesome! Installed in Bell 3/4 helmets in about 10 minutes, perfect fit. Have already recommended this product to others. Thanks Sena and Revzilla.

dead after 2yrs 2mo
This is a pretty good headset... when it works. I used it for about a year, then stopped riding and therefore didn't use the headsets for almost a year. Although I kept the units inside the house, stored away from heat and harmful conditions, I discovered yesterday that one of them does not work anymore. I've tried the reset button. I've tried updating the firmware. Finally I tried asking Revzilla and Sena if they would honor the warranty though I'm 2 months past the 2 year warranty. No luck. Considering I spent $300 on these units, only to use them for about a year, and not get the customer service I would expect from Sena and Revzilla, I cannot recommend these.
