Sena SMH10R Bluetooth Headset
Sleak and wonderful
This little guy is great! Little trickey to install but once its in the handling is easy you never notice it since it flush with the helmet unlike other bulky devices. Sound is good - lacking is bass but what do you expect in a helmet. Only gripe is that I didn't buy the dual pack since now I want one for my passanger

Easy to use functions, easy install in Shoei GT Air
Excellent fit and easy installation in Shoei GT Air paired with a Samsung Galaxy S3. Great function. Voice commands for making phone calls and text messages, starting and stopping music work well with this setup. Voice prompts for these actions are helpful, but you have to put faith in the text / phone numbers sight unseen when sending. The speakers are good for voice clarity, but are tinny and shrill for music. No bass. The Stone's Shattered and White Stripes' 7th Son were too much to take without low tones. Primus sounds like banjo music. Gordon Lightfoot no problem - but no honeyed richness. For music, get the accessory earbud adapter and either install upgraded helmet speakers (Tork) or go with earbuds, local laws permitting, for music.

Can't seem to get it to work right. It seems theres a new problem each time I go out.

Does what I need
It was fairly easy to install and took little time. Everything sticks on with velcro. Holds on to the helmet great. The clarity of the sound is good and the volume can go pretty high. But there's no bass to the tone what so ever. It's a very "am radio sound". I use it to connect my phone and ipod at the same time. I can make phone calls, answer them, and listen to my music all together. I have not tried the intercom yet. Charging takes about 3 hours when you drain the battery, but it will go for the 8 hours which it claims. It does everything I need and with ease of use.

This a great unit if you can intercom in with some other people. The hands free phone option is also pretty slick. I have an iPhone 4s and holding down the center button for a few seconds activates Siri, from there you can make a call, send a text, Google locations, start navigation etc. all with voice commands..
The receiver's low-profile look fits the helmet real nice (I have the Icon Variant).
My only real complaints are the speakers could be a little better quality (think old walkman headphones with the pull over foam sleeves). They sound alright, but they are definitely behind the curve in modern speaker technology..
Also the wires are very lightweight and flimsy, they are easy to pinch or cut, you have to be delicate with installing.
Overall if you ride with other guys using the Sena system and want to have access to phone call and music this is a good buy for the price.

Great sounding device!
I installed this on a shoei rf 1200 helmet and the install was pretty smooth. The only thing I kind of struggled was hiding the lines after the install. The sound quality is amazing and volume gets pretty high. Great product!

Nice low profile design.
The Sena SMH10R is great if you wear a neck brace because it doesn't clip to the bottom of the helmet. I had a Scala Rider. It clipped to the bottom of the helmet which caused it to get in the way if I turned my head while wearing a neck brace. The SMH10R sits above the helmet rim so it doesn't get in the way. Wire to battery seems a bit fragile, but I haven't had any problems with it. Operating the unit with summer gloves is no problem. A little tricky with winter gloves, but not too bad. Battery life is good.
