Sena SMH10R Bluetooth Headset
Sleek, Iight Weight, and Perfect for Arai Helmets
So the reason I looked into buying the SMH10R was I didn't want a huge jog dial hanging on the side of my helmet, seeing how my Arai was $700 bucks and perfectly aerodynamic. So the install went great and look about 45 minutes the first time. I was very picky how I placed everything and routed the wires. Everything when great except one thing. The plug from the battery to the headset has 4 prongs inside the connector. When I tried to put the two connectors together the prongs wasn't aliened perfect and I almost bent the prongs. I had to fix this before connecting the two. After install I figured out the basics and when for a ride. I was able to make and receive calls from my Galaxy S4 and play music from Pandora. Once you get it down its a really great headset and im very pleased

Great low profile what I was looking for.
So far I do enjoy this product I have not made a phone call on it then again I got for the blue tooth but I also can use the phone when needed.

Works very well
The size, look and sound of this are great. Installation was easy but the battery box came apart when I was adjusting it on the velcro. I put a little super glue on it but expected better durability. It takes some practice to find the center with gloves on. Using it I love it.

Very low profile
Great unit for the price. I was a little upset that I can't skip tracks, only fast forward a song. I think that is a big oversight on Sena's part.

Very good for the price and size
Speakers are very very good on phone calls, music sounds good but quality is not the best when enjoying some hd music.
the menu is simple and the three button operation is easy to master.
Riding in HARD rain is a bad idea, had some operational issues in a rain storm but a couple days later i have had no issues.
Battery lasts about 15 hours of riding

Haven't had a need to use this for intercom functionality but it works really well with an iPhone/Siri for phone calls and GPS directions. I mounted the wired mic to the inside of my full face helmet and my girlfriend can hear me clearly when I'm going over 55 MPH so that is good. Pretty easy to use if you have gloves on. If you are using thick winter gloves, however, it will be difficult to know if you are pressing the right button. I have my iphone in a tank bag with a clear map pocket and it lets me see google maps when I'm getting directions so that is pretty cool. Installation was tedious. Took over an hour to run all the cables properly.

Awesome little unit
Full disclosure, this is my first helmet blue tooth unit, or communication system for that matter.
The install was not difficult, and very easy to customize with the included velcros, and double sided adhesives etc. The main issue is knowing your helmet and gaining comfort taking out the inserts and then reassembling.
I have an arai helmet and it worked really nice. The unit is very slim and streamlined, and the clarity of the speakers is pretty good. I can hear music well even at highway speeds, and have made calls off the bike with excellent results. I didn't have trouble using it with bulky winter gloves.
I have not paired it with another unit or communicated to other riders yet, but I'm sure it will be great for this.
I plan to buy a second one to have for a passenger, and wish I would have splurged up front for the two pack, as I would have saved some dough.

Its worthwhile but could really use better speakers
It is really nice to be able to answer your phone while riding. Even if you pull over to talk at least you dont have to rip your gloves and helmet off. I have used it for music but the sound quality is pretty bad. The wires are thin and I think they will be where this product eventually fails.
