Sena SMH10 Universal Bluetooth Headset
Good piece of kit, but lacking in bass
Installation of the SMH10 on my Arai Defiant was pretty straightforward, although locating the speakers was hit-or-miss - I eventually went with placing them inside the cheekpad covers without the spacers, which are just that little bit too thick and caused my sticking-out ears to do painful gymnastics when I put the helmet on. Unfortunately, that means I lose what little bass response the speakers have, and since I listen mostly to EDM and other bass-heavy genres, it's disappointing. They seem to be a bit right-side biased in balance, but that may be due to my routing of the wires. Volume-wise, they'll take the top off your head if you crank it. They work very well with Etymotic ER20 XS plugs to take the edge off the top and bottom of the freq range.
Connection: easy to pair with my HTC One M8, but subsequent connections can take anywhere from two to 60 seconds on the A2DP side. HFP is pretty much instant. Sound transmission is very good, especially when high quality is enabled (not a jog-dial config option, you can only set it in the PC application).
I went with the wired mic instead of the boom. It takes up no space at all inside the chin bar and voice control of both the unit and my phone is perfect.
Overall, I'm very pleased with this gadget, enough that I can deal with the lack of bass.

Excellent sound quality
I use this headset mostly to stream music from my phone. It paired up easily, pairs up quickly with no rider input needed and sound is very good. Plenty of volume and easy to use. Time will tell on durability but I have no reason to think it is anything but durable.

This is a great product.
It was easy to install in my Shoei Qwest and pair with my iPhone. Music and phone are crystal clear. There is plenty of volume even with ear plugs. I am glad I bought the universal. I prefer the smaller microphone in the chin piece. My main reason for this purchase is ...... I get lost. The gps function in my iPhone comes through loud and clear.

I was delighted with RevZilla's recommendation with a compatible unit for my motorcycle... the first system purchased was NOT compatible and RevZilla graciously worked out the exchange. This one works great.

Not only can i talk to fellow riders i can also enjoy music while riding. Best bang for the buck and definitely worth it.

Worth the money
Works as intended, great to have if all your friends get them too. The sound quality isn't amazing for music, mostly lack of bass, otherwise voice quality is great.

Changes the way you ride
I have been riding for 36 years, let me tell you it is great to be able to listen to some music, or better yet be able to have a conversation with my passenger without screaming. Just purchased this one for a new rider , my son. It helped out a lot to be able to ride behind him and be a coach. Learning to ride you have a thousand things you need to pay attention to and remember to do at certain times. I was his little bird in his ear telling him what he did wrong or right, giving him advise on how to improve. If you are on the fence about buying these, don't be. One of the best purchases made. No Regrets

Am new to the sport touring, my son is an avid touring rider so when he asked me to ride with him I decided it was time to get some sort of communication equipment. My son already had the Sena SH-10 and had great things to say about it, I also read all the reviews and saw that they were very favorable. I have a Scorpion EXO-1100 helmet and opted for the little mic attached to the inside of the helmet. Took about an hour (new to this sort of thing), once installed found it to be very user friendly. Sound was very good even for me , my bike has a full race exhaust and is fairly loud. No problems hearing or being heard. Great product and as always Revzilla handled everything very professionally and quickly. Thanks
