Sena SMH10 Universal Bluetooth Headset Dual Pack
Just what we were looking for
I think I read every review of every available product before deciding on these, and I think I made the right choice.
The Sena kit has everything you'll need for a clean install, including charger cords, velcro mounting, and speaker pads to customize your speaker placement. Install was a breeze.
I have units installed on Nolan and Shoei helmets -- no issues.
Sound quality is excellent. Both rider comms and cell phone calls are crystal clear. Noise rejection is good.
I had mine paired to another Sena headset, a Zumo 550, and an Android phone. No sweat.
I believe I prefer the jog dial over a push-botton model (the "R" version). Easier to use with gloves. I wish the size of the units were just a bit smaller though.
The price point on these is better than the 20S model (half the cost!)

Love this but..
I seriously cannot say enough about this product.
I loved my smh 10 when I had it.
Range was amazing.
Intercom was clear as day.
Music streaming was great.
The only problem was music loudness
When doing 70 plus it just wasn't that loud.
When I would borrow my brother ninja 636 with m4 exhaust
My sena was completely useless. I couldn't hear anything.
With a stock exhaust bike it was good.
That's why I had to upgrade to a 20s and it's sooo much louder
But that's another review.

I use my Sena headset almost daily. Riding solo, you can listen to your tunes or use the turn by turn navigation from your phone. Of course when you're in a group, talking to your riding buddies is great. The range is really good, you'll rarely find yourself losing connection in intercom mode. I highly recommend this product.

Good for communications, ok for media
It's been great to use for communication via intercom or via cell phone. However, the one thing this doesn't have that my prior Bluetooth helmet system had was better media controls. To track forward or back, you have to push the jog dial in while rotating, which is hard to do with one hand while riding. As a communication system it works great.

Best headset yet!!!
The jog dial makes this headset so easy to use. Pairing can be a pain at times and intercom isn't the best, but overall this headsets makes up for its flaws in ease of use and sound quality.

Great Value Headset
I installed this in an airframe helmet and I feel like the sound clarity is good at a certain point. The airframe is a bit of a loud helmet at points so it becomes a little tougher to hear what's coming out of the speakers. However, I feel if this were on a different helmet, it would work wonders. The intercom feature works beautifully. Controls for the music and phone calls are easy. Overall, I'm definitely happy with this purchase.

We purchased this headset because my wife is a new rider and felt more comfortable being able to communicate with me since she rides her own bike. Assembly onto our helmet was simple and took a total of an hour for both helmets. Linking the headsets to our phone was simple as well. We tested the helmet with a six hour ride each way on a weekend getaway. The headset volume control is simple to operate while riding with gloves on. The sound clarity is unbelievable. It sounds like my wife is yelling into my ears. Sounds even better when listening to music from my phone. The headset held charge very well and the boom microphone keeps the wind noise to a minimum. Recharging the headset only takes about an hour or two. It doesn't affect the ease of putting the helmet on or off. The only real complaint I have with this helmet is that my wife talks to much making it hard to enjoy riding at times. Otherwise, I would highly recommend this headset. One of the best investment I've made for my bike and it has really helped in building my wife's riding confidence.

Product was easy to install and worked just as advertised. Had to return original item (my fault) and that process was seemless.
