Sena SMH10R Bluetooth Headset
I bought the unit a few months ago. The first one came in with a short in the battery lead so it wouldn't pull power from the battery. Contacted the Sena customer service and sent an RMA request, got a reply back within a day or two and the new unit in after maybe a week or so. They were wonderful and made everything easy.
The new one came in and it did work. Charged up, updated, everything. Installation was easy on my Shoei RF-1200 and thanks to the two raised lights I can figure out what buttons I'm on even with my gloves. Figuring out where the speakers go can be a bit of a pain and takes a few tries to get it to where they don't crush the top of your ears, but once that's done I can't even feel em when the helmet is on. Sound quality is alright, obviously with how small the speakers are there isn't much of a bass range but that much is expected. The volume that the speakers can get to is quite loud however, my helmet is also very loud so it can drown out the headset whenever I'm going over about 55 or so (I think getting a chin guard will help with the road noise so that could just be a temporary thing). The headset lasts quite a while on a charge (for me while not in school I can go about a week and a half before I have to plug it back in).
Overall a pretty solid unit if you don't want to pay extra for the new one that has the phone app and such. Ran it through two rain storms so far and it took em like a champ.

Sena SH 10-R
I've had it for about 3 months now and the pros far outweigh the cons on this little gem!! It's easy to install, easy to use once you're familiar with it. I read tons of reviews on all the "communicators" and watched tons of videos before I decided to buy it. I owned what was considered the best (Chatterbox communicator system) and there is no comparrison between the two!! Sena wins this one hands down in every category!! The two things I like best about it are its small size and the sound quality. I read in other reviews that some folks weren't impressed with the sound quality. I think they're to nit picky and the sound quality is pretty awesome for what it is. People I talk with on the phone while riding don't know I'm riding unless I tell them!! That's how good it is. Music quality is very good for such a small unit. Buy it...you will not be disappointed!!

Product has many great features.
I purchased this Sena headset for my son. He is a fairly new rider and he wanted this to be able to listen to his music and make/receive calls. He said it works great! I have called him while he was riding and I was unaware that he was even on his bike till I heard him rev the engine. It was crystal clear sound...

Everyone should have one of these
This device is awesome! I have mine in both a Scorpion EXO-700 and a Scorpion Exo-R2000. Like others have mentioned, the speakers that come stock in the box do not fit well in the R2000 since it is so slim. When I put them in that helmet, they smashed against my ears and were very uncomfortable. However, Sena has a slim speaker set for the SMH10R that I purchased and put in instead and those work fantastic. They don't touch my ears at all and are only slightly quieter than the larger ones that come in the box (and I mean slightly) while still maintaining great sound quality. So if you have the R2000 or other slim helmet where you've had issues with the fit, I'd recommend trying those slim speakers out.
I use this device every day I ride. Absolutely love being able to listen to music, make calls, get directions, and communicate with passengers and other riders. Not sure how anyone rides without one of these things. Especially when carrying a passenger. It's super helpful to be able to see how they are doing, give and receive feedback, and just have a fun conversation while riding together.
The noise cancellation in these is also quite impressive. I've used this for numerous phone calls while on the freeway and nobody has ever been able to tell that I'm on my motorcycle. I've also used it with the visor open, communicating with a passenger and it rarely ever transmits any wind noise through the mic.
I recommend this unit to everyone who rides because I love it so much. It's low profile, the battery lasts a long time, it works great, and helps add so much to the motorcycle riding experience.

This blue tooth device is great. works well. Have a few kinks but i think its the apps giving a problem not the device. I will say it has so many features its hard to remember how to use it sometimes. Also, if you have bulky gloves you might have a hard time finding the buttons while physically moving. This could also just be a person issue im encountering so in reality no real gripes about this product here. READ THE MANUAL. SOOOOOO MANY FEATURES...

Could be better sound
I thought the sound would be better, I just think the clarity isn't as good as it should be. It is a very cool and handy product especially if you want to listen to music so I do recommend it. I just think the company could have provided better speakers and sound quality for the price.

Not what I thought it would be
It is good, but I find that sometimes the phone doesn't stay connected and the left speaker doesn't work all the time. Could just be my luck or a faulty unit. The voice to music sound level differ so much that it could hurt your ear when switching over. Ultimately it gets me through the rare times I need to answer the phone.
