Sena SMH-10 Helmet Clamp Kit - Earbuds with Boom and Wired Microphone
Great idea but still some work to do
This particular part, the earphone adaptor, is terrific. I prefer earphones over helmet speakers and this accommodates it. The SMH10 on the other hand is a beautiful but flawed product, that frequently malfunctions, has moderate-at-best VOX quality relative to wind noise and limited product life. Definitely the best of breed, but there's still plenty they could do to improve it.

recommended...but with reservations
Overall I like the sena Smh-10 offering. The only flaw is the connection for the ear buds. This is a known weak point. I just ordered my third replacement. As another reviewer noted, you can beef this area up. When the base unit dies, and it will, I replace it myself and load the area with hot glue. When that repair fails I buy another one. I get about one riding season out of a clamp. Don't plan on going on a long trip without a spare.
Despite that obvious poor engineering, the sena unit has a great battery life and is, in general, a solid performer.

Very Inexpensive and Versatile
I love these kits. You can use it in a full faced helmet with small mic. Then put it in an open faced helmet or a flip up helmet and use the boom mic. I figure I can use this kit on just about any helmet I buy. And, having an extra kit means you can switch your Sena between two helmets instantly. When a helmet wears out, just take it our and put it in the new helmet. (Yeah, Senas last that long!)

The best Bluetooth device I have used
The Sena SMH 10 has been the best bluetooth device I have used and has the longest battery life. It is excellent.

Very Happy w/ Purchase
Just bought this for a 1500 mile long weekend with a friend of mine. I really like the flexibility of using the ear buds with Sena because I have a set of fitted earbuds. Good product.

Great product that is easy to use.
Used this communication system on a 4,000 mile ride. Audio quality was great, easy to use, and amazing battery life. I recommend it.

Good attachment for SMH10
Overall, I really like the helmet clamp with detachable mic and ear buds, and currentlyI use this platform in two helmets. It installs fairly easily, and typical of these devices, hiding the wiring is the worst part if installation. The majority of the clamp parts are robust, but the attachment point of the female jack leaves room for improvement. On older versions, the plastic is thicker; I have this version on my primary helmet, and it has functioned without problem for the past two years. On newer versions, the attachment is meant to be slightly flexible, and this was the point of failure on my second clamp. I was sad to see my third clamp have the same configuration. With a bit of ingenuity, one can "beef up" this location to help decrease breakages; however, it would be better if Sena made the change for the end-user.
Overall, I would recommend this product.

Far better sound than helmet speakers
I bought the SMH10 with helmet speakers and I'm disappointed with the sound quality. I bought this clamp kit to try ear buds and I'm very satisfied with the sound. Much better base.
