Sena SMH10 Universal Bluetooth Headset Dual Pack
decent system, should come with ear buds
Moved the speakers around a few times and sound quality is still less then expected. I'm buying the separate helmet clamp for earbuds and hope this with some decent ear buds improves the quality. Range appears to be good.

Haven't had the chance to use this gadget with more than 1 other rider, but with another rider i couldnt see what could go wrong.
Sound is very clear! Will pick up wind if your using a helmet that doesnt stop much road noise.
Some downsides for group riding such,
if your using a GPS and want the group to hear, you have to enter music sharing setting so everyone hears the GPS.
Wind noise is a issue, if you have a helmet that doesnt stop alot of noise.
Music option is great for long rides. Sound is clear and still allows you to be able to hear whats going on around you.
Callers can hear very clear.
Interacting with Siri is a big plus!!

great tech stuff!
Although I have been riding for many years, I've never purchased a headset. I looked hard at what was out there and settled on the Sena 10. There is more technology built into this than I will probably ever use, but what I do use works great! As an old Army Signal guy, I can't believe how good the communication is on the bike to the passenger, and to other riders in the group. The jog dial control sold me on this over the Sena 20, and in fact it is easy to use with a gloved hand.
This product has really increased the ease and pleasure of riding. Get one. You won't be disappointed.

I got these as a gift from my wife, because I was complaining about her punching me in the sides when she rides with me. Two months of riding with these and she gained enough confidence to learn to ride herself!
It's been a great aid to always keep aware with friends, and teach my wife while she begins her riding journey.
The added regular firmware updates have made them better and better.

Good not great
I bought this to replace my wired system which was great and clear but didn't like the wires. The Sena units sound is "caveish". There is some static from feedback. Not bad, just not great.

Works great for solo and 2-up riding
The sound was poor until we realized the speaker position needed adjustment. Much better now though not quite as nice as our previous AutoCom wired setup.
Great features that work well. I have an Android phone connected as a phone and my old iPhone as an MP3 device. Each paired easily and auto-connect quickly. Speed dial works easily. Units seem durable and solidly built. Battery life is very good. Bluetooth connection to both devices is strong, better than other Bluetooth head phones by quite a bit.
I'd recommend this for anyone that rides with of fewer other communication connected riders. For more riders you'll need the newer and more expensive Sena system.

Just got it!
I just got it and installed it on both of my helmets.. First off I want to mention that I ordered it early I'm the morning yesterday and it arrived today.. free 1 day shipping?! That's awesome!
Next.. the install was easy using the clamps the only problem was placing the speakers.. one helmet has a round ear hole that seems like it is meant for it but it is just a hair too small.. but I found that the magnet inside of the speaker keeps it in place where it is most comfortable.. so I didn't need to use the sticky velcro (I have a huge head).. on the 2nd (passenger) helmet I wished the short speaker wire was a little bit longer to fit around the padding of that helmet better but it's not the end of the world..
Word to the wise... update the firmware BEFORE you get excited and pair it to your phone because you are supposed to do a factory reset after the update and will have to erase your Bluetooth settings anyways..
Other than that just read the instructions which are easy to follow and navigate.. I only just got it so I haven't got much testing yet..but I did make a phone call while riding at 55 mph and she couldn't even tell I was on my bike!! And using it is pretty easy to learn too.. all I need to master now is the voice commands.. but I think that differs depending on what phone you have so good luck haha.. I will update this later after the rain passes and I get a chance to put it through its paces.. assuming I can that is..
