Sena SMH10R Bluetooth Headset 4.5 5 317 317
Great Product, Good features. Works just like it's suppose to, easy setup. Bluetooth has a decent range not quite a mile but maybe a half a mile range in a straight line. Would buy it again for sure on my next helmet if they don't have an upgraded one. Chose this over the SMH20 for the deal they had at the time - don't regret anything about this purchase. November 17, 2014
Pretty Cool, Pretty Convenient! Not too much to say. Install takes a while, but if you take your time its not bad at all. The only thing external is the actual control on the left side. The battery pack is inside the helmet, in the back and can't even tell it's there. I wanted very little attached to the outside. I used the wired mic instead of the boom so I wouldn't have to worry about it getting in the way when putting the helmet on or taking it off. Placing the ear pieces with the wiring was a tad tricky and getting it all to mesh with the liner was annoying at best. Sound quality is okay, not great. Taking phone calls is easy so long as you are not wearing thick gloves, but listening to people talk while riding......maybe I just need an equalizer for my phone conversations as it sound a tad tinny, add to that any road/wind noise and the conversation may be difficult to hear. Outside of that it's fine. Those on the other side of the conversation either don't know I'm on my bike or they say it sounds fine. I've listened to pandora at low volume on one occasion. and it sounds okay, while not high fidelity, you are on a bike and wouldn't expect it to be like listening to music in a vehicle. Though I imagine that company will further improve the audio quality in future versions. As it stands, it works as expected. The BT continued to work with my phone outside on the bike while I ran inside the house for something, through multiple walls and maybe 70-ish feet. Installed in a Shoei GT Air. November 10, 2014
Good little system for the price Let me first say that this product works as intended and for the price, the unit is good. It also has a very small profile which is stylish if your sporting a cool helmet on your sport bike. There is a major problem I did have though and its no fault to Sena. INSTALL IS DIFFICULT!. This could be easy to setup in most helmets. I hear its easy to install in Bell helmets since Bell works with Sena on some of their products, However. I own a Shoei RF-1200 Helmet and installing this unit took a few hours and even then, a few days to really get it to all work acceptably. First off if you own the RF-1200 the speaker pockets are a millimeter too small for the speakers to fit, causing you to have to alter the padding in the helmet. Second, you have to cut a hole in the neck roll to route the units cables into the helmet. Then once you do this, tucking the wire away is almost impossible given there is no room to do so, especially if you wear a snug helmet. After reading up on the web on how to get around these issues I finally got everything setup decently without neck roll pads popping out on me and my head feeling rough spots of cables. Now the system itself The unit works flawlessly with my iphone 6 after the firmware update. I can answer calls with the unit and listen to music just fine and the noise cancellation and wind reduction are beyond amazing at low speeds or traffic commute. My friend thought I was chilling from home when they heard me talking during a downtown ride. However, I dont think it will work all that well at highway speeds considering the amount of wind noise with this helmet. The speakers are also ok, not amazing but ok. During city commute you can hear decent quality sound come in, but dont expect that at highway speeds. Although you can raise the volume extremely high, it will only sound distorted and hurt your ears. The other thing that is a bit of a worry is the wires. They are so thin that you feel you have to be very careful not to break them. All in all, Im happy with this unit. It does what it claims and its reasonably priced. If your a commuter and want to listen to music on those rides to work. This is for you, but dont expect to use this on the highway at least with the Shoei RF-1200 helmet. Now if we could only get more helmet companies to get with the communications company's when developing the helmets. November 10, 2014
Solid product - easy install Would recommend this product to anyone - sound is great, install very easy. Basically, all I need it for is verbal navigation input, so can't necessarily speak to the quality of the mic for calls, etc, but so far, all excellent for what I needed. It would have been useful to have more (spare) velcro pads in the box, but I guess you can always go get some and cut it to fit. Great service from Revzilla too. November 10, 2014
Slick but can improve ergonomics I like the slim design. No turbulence at speed. Reliable and easy to use. Nitpicks: 1) Hard to feel which button to press. Those little +/- marks and ridges aren't always obvious in gloved hands. 2) Needs a more positive click when pushing buttons. There's zero tactile feedback. 3) Most riders, most of the time, use these devices to listen to maps/directions and music. Or to make phone calls. Way less often for actual group/intercom use. So it boggles my mind that I need to press and hold the center button for supposedly 3 seconds but actually more like 5, before I can pull up my iPhone's Siri to get directions or make a call, or play some tunes. The first click is intercom, then if you hold for 2 seconds you get the play/pause, and hold longer for Siri or voice command. I wish I can re-program Sena to reverse the order so that I can bring up my voice command in one click without having to hold. Firmware update please. Sena, you listening? probably not. November 9, 2014
Old Versus New. SMH10R or S20? * Just to note I have not owned the S20, but have a friend who has bought one. But I have owned the G9 and the similarities are on par. Having owned a G9 and the amount of frustration that came with all the bells and whistles not working 100% came to an end. The most frustrating part was the price paid for something that wasn't more streamlined. Sold it. But I realized I did miss my com and communicating with my group members. After reading more reviews of the S20 and it being a new to market product, I came to the conclusion that I would end up being back in the same situation with my G9. Frustrated. The SMH10R has been around for a bit and had some pretty good reviews. I finally decided to get it and for the price I couldn't really complain. I have had it for a few days and I realize I made the right choice. In general the VOX command prompt I disabled as its more of a nuisance that a benefit. The system gets lost/confused and you end up just turning it off and on again to reset. And the center button will get you to VOX command to access your phone. Pretty easy. The speakers are average, but that is ok. They work well, but if you are looking for bass, get some aftermarket ones. But I could hear the rider with the S20 with great clarity, even after he was out of line of sight. The unit is nice and minimal, but will take some practice to get the muscle memory down. It was easy to install as most are, but I'm sure it depends on your helmet. Pairing has a minor issue. Items pair without a problem. But there is a sequence I have to follow. When I start the unit, I have to make sure I sync the mp3 player first and then my phone. Because if I have my phone sync first, the mp3 player will not sync. In comparing my SMH10R with my friends S20, he even said he was only really using the functions my unit has. That the multitasking functions of the S20 became a bit trying. But he has only had for a week. I would say, if you need the latest and greatest, get the S20. But in the end, the SMH10R is a comparable unit for less the money. And as always, the Revilla crew were great. November 9, 2014
Really user friendly User friendly, has multiple features like intercom, voice command of your phone... I can take calls or call people while riding my bike and the sound clarity is really good. People can hear me very well and the battery life is also good. You just need to keep your bluetooth device close to your helmet for best results. (Jacket pocket) November 4, 2014
Just what I was looking for! This headset is just what I was looking for! First time installation was slightly tricky, but its perfect on the first "reinstall". Music is clear and easy to adjust volume and track even with gloves on. Phone works fine with a shout out of "Hello". I expect the direct comm link would work fine if I got a second on to talk to!

I was recommended Sena products by a few friends who have been overjoyed at their own purchases. I specifically purchased the SMH10R because of the lower profile and boomless mic. Apr 21, 2014
Colt T: The ability to communicate with friends on a ride makes the whole experience that much more enjoyable. It's also a great training tool, and I'm going to make sure when I'm teaching someone how to ride for the first time and taking them out for their first time, that we're connected via one of these devices. Apr 19, 2014
John G: Much more difficult to use with gloves than the bulky SMH-10. SMH-10 may not be as elegant as the SMH-10R on your helmet, but I like the bulky one better. Apr 17, 2014

stephanie g: Good reviews Dec 21, 2013
Timothy J: good reviews, appears quality, small profile. Dec 18, 2013
Andre N: Chose this Bluetooth headset based on reviews from other riders who say that the sound quality is comparable to being indoors. Most of these reviews come from riders with loud pipes who say they have no problems until they reach speeds above 65 mph. I ride a Goldwing with quiet pipes, and I wear a full face helmet, so I figured that those two factors, and the good reviews from other riders should prevent me from pulling over to either accept or make phone calls. Can't wait to test this unit. Dec 17, 2013
Peter D: Love this sena, works great and sounds even better Dec 2, 2013
jay m: I bought this base on the reviews that I read about bluetooth. Nov 27, 2013
Antonio M: Works great, what you see is what you get. Great buy.

The only observation, with gloves the buttons are not easy to identify, But one it is set up. Its works great. Speakers could be a little better.

Size and shape and feedbacks make me decide for this.

Regards
Nov 18, 2013

Eric B: Good reviews. Thin design. Nov 5, 2013
Kurt W: I wanted a more reliable, better sounding, less obtrusive device than the Chatterbox. Also, because it had an adhesive for the helmet, instead of a bracket that never really was tight to the helmet. Nov 4, 2013
Deb M: Best buy I have made to date Nov 1, 2013

I didnt want a huge hulking thing hanging from my sleek carbon fiber helmet. It really is low profile once installed and blends amazingly well into my helmet. The buttons will take some getting used to with my gloves on, but so far it seems to work very well. Sep 16, 2013
Thomas B: wanted smaller compact blue tooth device that will generate less wind noise Sep 13, 2013
Tracy M: I chose this for its low profile and its compact size. The price point wasn't bad either. I needed something for my Lazer Monaco that would not detract from the lightness of the helmet and provide good functionality. I asked for direction on this from RevZilla's tech guys and received great input. Will see how it works out when it arrives. Sep 11, 2013
Mitchel K: Love it.. Great sound quality. Like most reviews say the menu takes a minute or two to get used to but after remembering how long to hold down the buttons to get it to do what you want it works great. Very slim low profile. Sep 10, 2013

James B: Low profile, Sena's reputation. Aug 29, 2013
Dirk K: The quality of the speakers and hardware were incredible. Installation was easy by just following the instructions. Hardest part was trying to figure out how you wanted to run all the wires. Charge time is great, have had for around 3 months and there has been no diminished time. Audio quality from music and voice are great on mine and the receiving end. Very low profile allows for no wind noise. Aug 29, 2013

I'm afraid I can't answer re. the RF 1100... but I can say that I had similar questions when I was researching buying the SMH10R. I ultimately decided to get the unit for all the other things it does well - and I haven't been disappointed. Great unit... and now that it's installed I never think about the little box hanging off the back end - doesn't even cross my mind. (Oh yeh... it definitely would not fit in my Arai helmet.)

Patrick M: I put this on my Shoei Qwest and struggled to get the wiring inside the pads. As far as getting the battery inside you might have better luck as your head liner is removable and mine is not. I settled for placing the battery on the outside.

Kevin N: It will fit in any full face helmet , I would leave the battery outside since the battery itself its curved for sticking on the back of the helmet .

A shopper asked: From reading the product description it seems that this product can pair and connect with multiple Bluetooth devices simultaneously, is that right? i.e. Can I pair it with an iPhone 4S via Bluetooth and another Bluetooth device such as a Pryme Blue BT-503 adapter? I work as a ski patroller and it would be great to be able to have bluetooth in my ski helmet that can pair and connect with more than one device simultaneously. This way, I can be connected with my phone for phone calls and music, but also have the ski patrol 2-way radio connected too.

If this works, is there a way to set a priority of one Bluetooth source over another? i.e. if two BT devices are connected, can one mute out the other? i.e. Can I set the ski patrol radio to have priority over the iPhone connection?

Wissam S: The Sena does pair with multiple devices and even has a protocol for order, for instance if you're listening to your iPod via Bluetooth and receive a call it will pause the music and switch to the phone, same with a Bluetooth enabled GPS. However I'm not too sire it will work so well with a 2 way radio in the same affect. It does have a built in 2 way to work with up to 3 other sena units however this may be one you'll have to try and see.

The unit itself is excellent, I can listen to music and even hold a solid conversation at high speeds, integrated great with my shark helmet since it is already set up for the less than great sharktooth system, just used a heated paper clip to open up the battery hole a bit more and put it in beautifully.

Andrew M: The SMH10R does support multipoint pairing. So this will allow you to pair two devices simultaneously. As far as the priority I'm not sure. I haven't paired two devices to it yet. You can download the user manual from Sena's website , but that doesn't really discuss a priority set up, it just shows that you can have two of them paired at once. Sorry if this doesn't help a whole lot. Nov 29, 2013

Diego Lorenzo J asked: Is it also possible to use this without the microphone? I've got a Bell Custom 500 helmet and am also considering not using the microphone, but more just to hear my Garmin GPS directions and maybe my iPhone music, and not to take calls. Aug 19, 2013

Chaz J: I just unplugged the mic and tested mine. It played music via spotify, was able to control volume and skip tracks. All the normal things you can do with this headset. I also started google maps directions, was able to hear her talk over the music as it normally would. Phone calls selected the headset by default when I first connected, but you can quickly change the source on screen, and I think it will actually save that setting for future use. Aug 19, 2013

Mike C: I'm pretty confident that the SMH10R can be used as a listen-only device w/o having the microphone hooked up. Worst case is that you connect the small mic sire and place it in the helmet behind one of pads (it's very small especially w/o the windscreen installed).

Eric W: Yes, you can use without the microphone. It plugs in separately, so just don't plug it in. It really is the least conspicuous component of the headset (the small mic, not the boom mic) so I would just assume use it so you can use the headset to it's full potential. Aug 19, 2013

Brian G: It would be possible but the mic is so small that it is worth putting it in anyway. If you have an iPhone the Sena is a blast to use with Siri. That way you can get to most of your phone functions by simply pressing the center of the unit for a couple of seconds. Aug 19, 2013

Dave F: I can't answer as to "usability" although I think it would work reasonable well on a faired bike if not running at high speeds. Mounting the mike shouldn't be too bad I'd think. I'm using mine in a Schuberth C3 Pro, and the mike "boom" is velcro'd to the left side under the cheek pad and puts the mike right in front of my mouth. I don't know how the shape a Bell 500 is vs a Shuberth with the chin up . .but if they're similar.. . .Good Luck!Dave Aug 9, 2013

Michael U: I've only used the SMH10R with a full-face helmet.

The included boom-style microphone has a large velcro mounting tab. It looks like it probably could be mounted to the outside of an open-face helmet, with the boom then bent under the helmet's edge to put the microphone close to your mouth.

Geoffrey M: I use it with a flip up helmet. It comes with 2 mics, one wired and one boomed. I used the boom. It sticks to the inside of the helmet on a hard surface between inner shell and liner. The boom is maybe 5" long. That would be my only concern for you. Installation was very easy. Intercom can be voice or button activated. Open faced you would use the button option. Hope this helped.

June Y: Pretty good with open-faced helmets, too, I'd imagine. I have a full-face so I used the wired mic when installing, but the package also contains a rigid (and flexible) boom mic as well.

Duane B: The Sena comes with 2 microphones.
One has soft wire and can be attached to the inside of a full face helmet, the other is on the end of a flexible boom for use in open or flip-up modular helmets. I use the boom mic and find it to work without any troubles.
Just mount it so that it centers with your mouth.

A shopper asked: Is it possible to keep/hide the main unit & battery pack in my chest pocket, instead of mounting them onto my helmet?

are the cords long enough to do so?
Apr 5, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Geoffrey M: No the cord isn't long enough. The battery is small (about the size of 2 AAA batteries) and doesn't bother me on my helmet (Shoei Neotec). The controller is about the same only thinner. I think a wire to a jacket pocket would be more inconvenient as I'd always have to remember to undo it when I take my helmet off. You would need to create a more durable plug as well, a lot of work. The setup works well as designed and allows access to the controller easily while riding for volume adjustment, etc. Apr 5, 2014
Reply to Geoffrey Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Michael L: Anything is possible...but why??? The cords aren't long enough to do what you're talking outside of splicing additional wiring. But, I wouldn't do it! I placed the battery inside of my helmet (Shoei GT-Air) and all the cabling is between the helmet liner and helmet. Makes for a neat package with only a bit of wire showing from the main unit (and this is minuscule).

My advice, install the unit to the helmet and "hide" the battery inside the helmet! It works!
Apr 5, 2014
Reply to Michael Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Duane B: No, would be the best answer. It is made to be mounted and works well. The cable would be too short and vulnerable to damage if not mounted on the helmet.
It could be removed and installed on another helmet, say if you have a commuter helmet but want to take another on vacation.
Putting the hardware in your pocket would make it less functional also.

Jason O: The battery cord is hard wired, and not long enough to put in a pocket, unless you can find an extension cable that is compatible. My battery wouldn't mount flush on the back of my AGV GP-Tech, so I just tucked the battery up between the venting and lining in the top of the helmet (it's very small and I can't feel it up there). Apr 6, 2014
Reply to Jason Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Edward C: No, the amount of pre-wired cable would not reach to a jacket pocket. But, the cords do tuck away nicely within the cheek and neck collar padding of most any modern helmet. The controls (on the left cheek) and battery (usually) on the rear lower of the helmet are low profile and not very prominent. Apr 5, 2014
Reply to Edward Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Humberto P: No, for one the cord is too short and if you were to turn your head it would unplug. The good thing is that the battery is so small and would most liklt fit on the inside the back of your helmet if you get a little creative with some double sided tape.

This Sena unit does not take up much space at all on the helmet. I installed the main unit on the left side of my helmet and the battery is suppose to be installed on the back but I put mine inside my helmet in back of the pad behind my head (hope that makes sence).

Michael U: I use the Sena SMH10R Bluetooth headset just so that I can hear my radar detector and GPS, no bike-to-bike communication for now. Though it's good to have that as an option.

A cheaper way to go is to just get Bluetooth earphones. I've used ones made by both Jabra and Jaybird that I can comfortably use inside a helmet. I don't think they are as convenient or comfortable as in-helmet speakers, but they're not a bad option.

No windshield on the bike so my helmet took all the rain. Got some leaking around the visor but nothing terrible. During all this the Sena was cranking out Iron Maiden and never missed a beat.

Got to my stop and everything was working fine.

Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Alex S: The SMH10R does not have an auto-volume feature. Volume is controlled by the controls on the unit which are small at first but you get used to it. Volume is acceptable up to 40-50mph. I swapped the original speakers with Torx XPro speakers which offers a better bass and volume. The Torx wires need to be spliced to the adaptor wire to reduce the amount to be tucked into the helmet. I also have a mini amp which substantially boosts volume, if needed. May 29, 2014

From a practical standpoint, if my helmet is on so is my engine and I'm riding so I don't often have to adjust it at all. Maybe one plus tap when on a noisy road and then back down then it gets a bit quieter.

How often do you expect to walking around with your helmet on and not riding while still using the headset?

With the rubber door there I often have to double check it and reseat the plug. When unit is charging the red light is on. When charge is complete the light turns blue.

A shopper asked: I am trying to decide between the Sena SMH 10 and the Sena SMH 10R (or another bluetooth option). My primary helmet is the icon variant which has its cheek pads overlapping the side of the helmet which is covered by a flexible plastic piece. It seems difficult to find a place to clamp the sena SMH10 but also tricky for the 10R as far as the wiring goes. Overall, I prefer the Sena 10 because I can clamp it on and off my two other helmets, unless there is an easy way to transfer the Sena 10R between helmets that I am unsure of. What do you recommend? Apr 30, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
A s: I have both the SMH10R as well as the SMH10. If you can't clamp the helmet onto the helmet, it's going to be a little difficult. One of the attachments that the SMH10 comes with is a double sided tape that you can use to stick the unit to the helmet without the clamp. However, this message is given in the SMH10 user guide:

"Sena recommends the clamp unit over the glued surface
mounting adapter. Even though the glued surface mounting
adapter is provided for convenience, Sena does not assume
any responsibility for use of it. Users may have to use the glued
adapter at their own risk and responsibility."

I've used this method on one helmet and it stuck OK. but I wouldn't really trust it as it may eventually let go. If you use this method, it's very difficult for you to transfer it to another helmet. You might still be able to finagle the clamp under the Helmet shell to get it to fit with the clamp.

With the SMH10R, it's all very easy. You use velcro bits to attach the unit to the helmet. If you want to remove it and attach it to another helmet, you'd just have to spend under $10 to get another set of velcro that you can attach to another helmet. It's relatively easy to take off and stick to another helmet. With the SMH10, you'll have to unclamp it, pry it out from under your EPS and also have the necessary allen key to do this.

The SHM10R works well for me mainly because I didn't want a huge bulky thing sticking out on my racy sporty helmet. I will say, however, that the SMH10 with the jog dial is leaps and bounds better to use. The design and user interface is brilliant and very well thought out. I don't fiddle with it enough, but if you do while riding, you might want the SMH10.

Roger L: I have the 10R mounted with velcro on the lower left outside chin bar on my RF1200 and the battery mounted on the back with velcro. I think my set only came with one set of velcro pads for the main unit and battery but if you decide to go with the 10r, try getting an extra battery and velcro pads. This way, you can leave the battery on the helmet when you transfer the main unit to a different helmet.

The set comes with a wired mic and a boom. You can mount the mic on one helmet and the boom on the other. As for the speakers, I didn't install those since they don't sound as good as headphones and picked up the headphone adaptor kit.

Rod R: I've had the 10h and am currently using the 10r. The 10h has a bigger battery. I think it would be better for swapping helmets if using the boom mic.

Josh R asked: I have a Rpha Max modular helmet.
1. Do the ear pads fit in this helmet?
2. How do you connect the wired microphone to the modular mouthpiece?
Aug 20, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
A s: I'm sorry but I'm not sure if they fit. I have a scorpion 1000 and they fit in mine. If you pop off your cheek Pads you can look for indented disk in the foam that the pads can fit in. Even if there are no indents it might still work. The speakers are pretty thin. They come with little pads to push them closer to your ears but I didn't use them because it put too much pressure on my ears but it still works fine.

As for the microphone, both the wired, and the boom connect to the same connector on the bluetooth receiver. I chose to use the wired one. Both mics come with velcro, or double sided tape to stick somewhere in the helmet.
You are making a good choice with this system in my opinion. It took about half an hour and I can't see any wires. Battery lasts forever and the controls work well enough. Sound quality is quite good for a helmet but call quality is awesome. People can't even tell I'm riding a bike

Diego B: Hi Josh, I am not sure if it would fit your modular helmet, I have a Shark Speed-r and it fits great, also a friend installed it I a Shoei helmet with no issues and be did not have a designed space for the ear pads. For the microphone there is a single connector so you have the choice of using either the modular or wired one, I am using the wired one as the cable is very thin and I don't like the other as is it clear enough with the small wired one and is less intrusive for me. My friend however is using the modular mic as he like to adjust the position inside the helmet.
It's a good product, I can recommend it, I use it everyday to lists to music while commuting and it's great!

Arif S: I'm not sure what your helmet's speaker hole looks like, but I put mine on a bell star and I still use the foam insert from the helmet so the speaker sits closer to my ears. Some say to take it out so the sound would better having an air gap for sound to reverberate, but I tried it and it sounded worse. Just make sure you have ear plugs on because the speaker is very high pitch. Ear plugs help lowering the frequency to be just about right bass.
The set comes with a boom mic so it would be ok with a modular. You won't be able to use it on the highway though, regardless what people say. City riding is still ok.

A shopper asked: How water resistant is it?

You say mention this unit is water "resistant" in the video where other you say water "proof". I currently have a U-clear 200 that works just like I'd want but when ridden in the rain it start glitching and powering on and off on its own. After a day out of the rain it works fine again. Will this unit be more weather resistant then the U-clear or should I consider a more water proof unit?

Karl L: The answer to both of your questions is yes. I can say this with honesty as my microphone became disconnected by accident this summer and the unit worked fine with the exception of my friends being unable to hear me.
One observation I will make is that although I'd give this unit plenty of stars, it's only got better with each firmware upgrade, it really shines out for it's vocal communicative properties. If I wanted to listen to music only I don't think I'd recommend this unit, it lacks bass for a HiFi enthusiast. I'd probably save your money and go for an ear bud and plug it into your smartphone.

oswaldo l: HI, this unit rocks. It will work without the mic on any helmet, but than again why wouldn't you use it? Just install it and have it there just in case, my humble recommendation. On your Shubert helmet you can use the regular mic, not the boom and place it on the inside of the non-flippable area. I reccomend this unit its very good.

Donald D: There are 2 mics that come with the unit. There is a wired and a boom. For a modular helmet use the boom mic. It doesn't attach to the front of the helmet. The wired mic needs to affix itself to the inside if the helmet. Hope that helps Jun 20, 2014

A shopper asked: I'm new to this stuff and was wondering if i could pair this straight to my note2 and listen to music and take calls or do i have to pair it through a gps system? Jun 14, 2014

A s: It will connect straight to your note 2 via Bluetooth. Then you can start navigation and play music, and it will most likely dim your music for directions. Though with some devices it plays both at the same volume. It may be a changeable setting. I use my phone in this exact setting all the time. I would highly recommend this comm. I love mine.

don p: The note2 is a bluetooth enabled phone, so it should pair to the Sena just like any phone.The SMH10R works perfectly with my iphone5 for music, etc.
So, to answer your question..Yes, it should work fine connecting to your note2 without having to be paired through a gps.

A shopper asked: If I have my unit paired with a GPS over bluetooth using A2DP, can my passenger also hear the GPS directions (and music from the GPS media player)? Would my unit act as a 'relay' to the passenger unit for the audio from the GPS? This would be a Garmin Nuvi 765t GPS. Or, is the GPS able to pair with the two headsets separately and pass its signal to both at the same time? Jan 31, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Sena B: With the most recent firmware release, v5.0, you will be able to share the music from the GPS using the Music Sharing feature but not the GPS directions. The music on a Garmin GPS is using A2DP which can be shared between two headsets through Music Sharing but the GPS directions are using the HandsFree Profile (HFP) which cannot be shared between two headsets.

Paul D asked: I have an internal battery slot in the back of my Lazer Monaco Window Hi-Viz helmet. What are the battery
dimensions? I am trying to determine if the battery will fit in that slot.
Jan 1, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
John D: Battery dimensions are. 2 1/4 inches long × 1 inch wide × 7/16 inch tall. If you lay it down flat on its back you will notice the topside is flat. The bottom or mounting side is concave to adhere completely across the entire mounting area on the back of a helmet. I have mine on a shoe gt air with the battery at the back bottom center where you will typically find the dot sticker. Works great for me and the whole thing is barely noticeable. I am on my second battery as the first one was broken open in a high speed crash. That's right a high side highway speed crash. New battery cost me about $20.00. Unit still works fine attached to my new helmet. Jan 2, 2014
Reply to John Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Michael U: The battery pack is 56.7 mm wide, 25.5 mm high, and 13 mm thick. The pack is really a bit thinner than that, but it is curved slightly so you would need a space at least 13 mm deep.

Also, the power cord exits from the left end of the pack.

Hope this helps.

A shopper asked: Does the SMH 10R work well in modular helmets? I have the Shoei Neotec (large) and I wanted to make sure the boom mic is long enough that I can mount it inside the helmet in front of the henge so that I can open and close the face mask and not pull on the mic at all. I just want to make sure the boom is long enough that when it is mounted before the henge that it will still reach all the way around to my mouth for clear communication when I make a phone call. Sep 3, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Geoffrey M: I bought the smh10r at the same time as my shoei neotec size L. The install was easy and the boom fits fine. When I lower the modular face mask I push the mic against my lips so it doesn't get caught but if it does it can easily be straightened with a finger from underneath. The mic is audible with the mask up though I have a windscreen on my bike. Happy with my purchase but I wish my passenger could pair to the same Bluetooth music source. We can use intercom or I can listen to music but she can't unless she pairs to another source. Sep 25, 2013

A shopper asked: Is it possible to use the wired mic with a modular helmet or is it necessary to use the boom mic? Aug 31, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
James A N: I have a standard full-face helmet with the wired mic installed, so I don't know what I'm talking about, but I'll give 110% answer anyway... two issues I can see with running the wired mic in a modular: (1) the wire could easily get caught or pinched in the chin bar, and (2) there doesn't seem to be enough length in the mic wire (8-1/2" from the connector plug to the microphone) to tape the wire securely with sufficient slack for the full range of chin bar movement. If the wire has enough length, it might work to run it through conduit made of electrical shrink tubing for protection. Dec 1, 2013
Reply to James A Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Alan G: One could possibly use the wired mic of the SMH10R in a modular helmet; remember that the connection wire to the mic will flex every time the front of the helmet is raised so the position and security of the wire will be critical (it is a very fine wire!). One would have to use temporary tape to test everything. I would think that the best application would be the boom mic mounted solid to the main helmet. The boom mic is fairly small and unobtrusive, is not in the way with the front raised and should tuck easily as the front is lowered. Sep 26, 2013

David G: I think the mic works fine with a modular helmet, with or without the wind damper (foam thingy) that slips over it. I have a Schuberth C3, not unlike the Shoei you have or are thinking of buying.

With the adjustable boom on the mic, it easily stays out of the way when you flip up the bottom half of the helmet.

Other than that, I've got nothing but goods things to say about the Sena SMH 10R. It does the job quite nicely.

Daniel B: I've got the Nolan 104 modular and the boom mic attaches under the cheek pad with double sided tape . The boom is flexable and can be positioned right in front of your mouth.

A shopper asked: Does the unit charge through the headset itself or charger connected to the external battery? Mar 24, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Henry K: The charger is connected to the headset itself. You get two charging cables with the unit. The first cable terminates in a cigarette lighter plug so if you have a a cigarette lighter socket on your bike you can charge from there. Revzilla carries an cigarette lighter socket to sae adapter that can be connected to where you charge your bike and used to charge the headset even while in use. The second cable is a USB cable that can be connected to your PC or Mac for updating or plugged into a USB charger. I keep a spare USB charger near my bike so I can charge the bike's battery using my battery tender jr and the headset using the USB charger at the same time. I usually charge it up the night before I go for a long ride. May 13, 2013
Reply to Henry Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
RevZilla: Both! If you buy the Battery Pack, you will be able to charge the battery itself (it comes with a USB adapter to connect to the battery). Otherwise, the USB port on the device is the way to do it.

oswaldo l: Hi, in our group we all have sena 10R. IT can be a pain to have 4 people paired, specially when you constantly pair with different members of the group and that changes the intercom order. The easiest way to pair, as I've found through trial and error is to join in the 3 way. Pair with one specific friend and have him on number one. Have him have a 3 way with your other 2 friends and then join on intecom channel 1 or, you start the conference with your other 2 friends and have your friend join via intercom channel one. It doesn't always work in the most predictable way but this is the best way to do it that I know of. I'm sure (and I hope) someone else has it down to a cience and he can enlighten us. Sep 5, 2014

Duane B: You can use your smart phone as your GPS. I use my Android phone for everything while on the bike. By connecting to only one devise that does everything I believe I'm getting longer battery life from the Sena. I stream music, use Waze as my GPS program and of course, you can always answer the phone. The phone is charged on the bike via a power port and USB converter since the screen will drain the battery.

Sean R: I think the only way you could use the intercom function is if you had a second unit in the car which could be linked up with bluetooth to her car system. The intercom system doesn't go through bluetooth, it uses a different frequency and protocal than the link to a phone. I'm not sure it would be worth the second unit for that.
Can I interest you in free mobile-to-mobile calling?

You have several inches of cord to place with location/placement of the unit on your helmet. Fits my GF's Shoei no problem. I would recommend NOT putting the microphone directly in front of your mouth, I ended up kissing it too often. Moved it to the side and itj works great.

Anthony H: I can not answer the first part of your question. I'm not confident that you will be able to use the intercom with a car with Bluetooth. If you share a phone plan with your wife then the phone call would be my choice. I choose not to talk so much while I'm riding. Mostly a safety issue for me.

I can tell you this, the SMH10R works perfectly with the GT Air. A perfect match with no issues. I never had a problem with the unit or visor. Plenty of room for both. Read the manual on the SENA carefully and practice manipulating the buttons. It can be a challenge while the bike is in motion.

Donald D: Understand that the correct placement of the battery is on the rear (outside) of the helmet. I installed mine on the inside between the shell and pad for a more sleek look. I had no issues but I could feel it. Not uncomfortable but you will know it's there.

I have a Shoei RF 1100 and there are no figment issues. As long as your Variant has speaker pockets this unit will fit. All other components will attach with Velcro. Maybe the person who wrote the review you read wasn't installing the unit correctly. I will end this telling you the same I tell everyone "Pull the trigger you won't regret it".

A shopper asked: I'm interested in what the controller buttons actually do. I'll mostly be using this head set to listen to music so I'm curious what I'll be able to do as far as changing the track or controlling volume. Or if it's only one or the other. If the old jog dial from the SMH-10 has more functionality I'd probably be more interested in it. If functions are the same then the SMH-10R would be preferred due to lower profile Apr 23, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
RevZilla: The SMH10R actually has three control buttons: the (+) button, (-) button, and the center button. You can perform the same functions as the SMH-10, and the functionality is as follows:

(+)/(-) Buttons:

Volume Adjustment
Navigate through voice configuration menu
MP3 track-forward and track-back

Center Button:

Answer and end a mobile phone call
Reject an incoming mobile phone call
Play and pause Bluetooth stereo device
Enter into intercom pairing mode
Enter into voice configuration mode

djmack: I haven’t used my Bluetooth much since weather is not cooperating this year. I’ll try to answer the question best to my experience. While holding the center button you will be able to activate the voice commends, I only use music on/off, I have an accent and most of voice commends will not work so I don’t even try to use them. Also if you have a incoming call you answer it by pushing the center button, in same manner you can disconnect. While holding the “+”/ “-“buttons you can browse through tracks, i.e. move forward or start from the beginning. I hope this helps. Apr 24, 2013

A S asked: I hope this does not post twice...

I like the reputation this manufacturer has and the set up of this device, however, my first question is about whether or not the battery pack can easily be removed for charging? I assume it can since it fastens via hook and loop and there are available spare batteries with an included charging cable. I work in a hectic environment and cannot leave the helmet plugged in just anywhere, but a little battery wouldn't be a problem, just for those days I want/need to go for a long ride after work.

Also, is this worth the extra money since I seldom do group rides and mostly listen to NPR with the occasional listening to music. I had a flip phone that I would just shove in my old 3/4 helmet when my wife was following me in her car, no problem with the sound with that set up. I switched to a full-face helmet and would like something easier that dealing with ear buds in a well fitting helmet. If you think this unit would be overkill, can you suggest a cheaper alternative that has at least decent music quality?

Thank you.

Ryan S: You are not able to charge the battery by itself as the actual unit charges it via USB. I have had the unit about a year and the battery still lasts me about a week of riding. I think you would very easily be able to charge the unit only at home and be safe. As for sound quality, it is better than a flip phone speaker but leaves much to be desired. If I am going on long trips, I tend to plug my phone into good quality noise isolating ear phones and listen to music that way. You can not listen to fm radio on this. You may look at the 20s which has radio and can be easily removed from the helmet. Nov 10, 2014

Diego B: Hi there,

I wouldn't say that removing the battery pack is easy, lots of small cables routed from the main unit and delicate clips, also the only use input for charging is on the main unit.
I only had to check connections twice in two years as the small clips joining the cable come loose sometimes so unit wouldn't charge. Also the charge for me lasts around 10 hrs of continuous music playback so is not like you have to charge very often. In my usual daily commute to and from work I always listen to music and I get between 10 and 15 days out of a full charge.

A shopper asked: Sorry if I skipped over this question being asked already, but there are a lot. I am wondering if it is possible to remove the battery pack for charging or do I just put my helmet next to my power source? I assume this is possible since it mounts by way of hook and loop fasteners and the fact that there are available spare batteries; but, would I have to buy/make something to be able to charge it without putting my helmet next to my power outlet, since hook and loops have limited usage cycles? I am thinking of this over a standard Bluetooth headset for music because I want something that is easily put on with my helmet and the ear buds are difficult with a full-face helmet. Nov 10, 2014

John K: Unless you are gabbing on it constantly, you really won't have to charge it that often. Also, the charging port is actually on control unit, not the battery, and the control unit also has all the connections for the battery, speakers and microphone. Once you get all that nicely installed in your helmet the last thing you would want to do is pull it all out just to charge it. It is so much simpler just to put your helmet next to an outlet.

**It can, however, work via bluetooth to another non-sena headset that supports phone pairing, with latest firmware, which is pretty much just as useful as 2-up only or when stopped. Otherwise you'll exceed that 30ft range of the limits of bluetooth rather quickly.

Jim C: Yes.... since it mounts to the helmet either with double sided tape or with velcro it fits just about anything and you get to pick YOUR ideal location.

I have the Bell Rev Evo and the built in sunshield prevented most mounts, plus I wanted something low profile. As a cancer survivor I have already had my share of tumors and didn't want some bulky tumor hanging off my helmet.

The unit is very low profile very easy to use with gloves on, once you read the manual, and the speakers are outstanding for music and volume. I have a two bro exhaust... its loud and throaty... even at highway speeds I can hear my music just fine.

Call quality is ok below 55mph and thats mostly on the callers end... I can hear them fine.

I use to own the CL-16 I recommend if you plan on doing anything other than listening to music, or want to use the VOX feature that you invest in a chin curtain as well to help reduce the wind noise to the mic.

You cannot go wrong with SENA and this unit ROCKS!

Sena B: The SMH10R can be setup for Four-Way Conference Intercom in two configuration:

1) A to B, A to C, A to D. This is pairing headset A directly to B, C, and D directly as previously mentioned.

2) A to B, B to C, C to D

The SMH10 has the following Bluetooth profiles that a device can be paired with: 2x profiles for phone calls or GPS directions (HFP), 1x profile for music (A2DP), and 1x profile for Intercom for a total of 4 connections. Other wise you can have 3 other paired Sena headsets for a four-way conference intercom conversation.

Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
RevZilla: The wired button microphone is not designed to work with modular helmets, as the microphone is mounted on the inside of the chinbar. The wire is definitely not long enough to allow the chinbar to open fully. For use with modular helmets, you would mount the boom microphone behind the left cheekpad. The connection wire that comes out the back of the boom microphone would then connect into the control unit. By using the boom microphone, the chinbar moves independently of the microphone.

RevZilla: The Sena SMH10 and SMH10R will automatically go into stand-by mode once there is no active connection for the unit to work with. Thus, if you are engaged in a conversation via inter-comm, it will not go into stand-by unless that connection is terminated and the unit isn't turned off (there also cannot be any other connections, such as a Bluetooth connection to a phone, gps, etc). Essentially the Stand-By feature is designed to keep the unit from using up battery life if you put the helmet away without turning the unit off. That way if you are on a longer trip you won't wake up in the morning to find that the unit is dead. Mar 20, 2013

Will M: I don't have a hump on any of my jackets or suits so I won't swear it won't. Does the hump hit the back of your helmet? I ask as the battery isn't much larger than a key fob for a car. I'll attach a photo.

The beauty of this system is you can place the battery anywhere you want. It has a long power cable. I put mine dead center on the back, at the bottom.

You could put it on the right side I suppose???

A shopper asked: The SMH-10 was well known for its glove friendly controls. How does this unit compare? Feb 18, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
RevZilla: The SMH10R is slightly less friendly to gloves than the Jog Dial is on the SMH10. Both are easy to use, but the Jog Dial would still be recommended if you are truly concerned with ease of use. The usable surface or "pressing area" for the buttons on the SMH10R is about the size of a nickel. Feb 19, 2013

dctraveler: I have found it is more difficult to use the lower profile unit with heavy gloves. It is difficult to feel the controls than the jog dial. But to me, it is worth it since I think it is a better performing system and I love the lower profile. Feb 25, 2013

A shopper asked: If it's possible to place it inside, would I be able to use it in a Shoei X12 or an Arai Corsair V without feeling it on the back of the head? Feb 7, 2013

Will M: Unless you have a specific 'nook' in your helmet you can put it on the outside. Most of the Bluetooth helmets I've seen have a space for it, as well as the speakers, but my HJC IS-16 did not.

Mine is attached to the bottom of the helmet, dead center on the back. It is about the size of my rectangular car key fob, if that makes sense. It has a reflective stripe on it so I assume it's designed to be on the outside.

RevZilla: We definitely recommend mounting the battery on the lower back side of the helmet, especially since there is very little extra space on the inside of a race helmet like the X-12 or Corsair V for the battery. Placing the battery on the outside of the helmet also helps to keep the battery cool. Feb 8, 2013

A shopper asked: What is thickness on the speakers Jan 17, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
RevZilla: The speakers that come with the SMH10R are the same speakers as those found on the SMH10. They have a thickness of .25 inches and a diameter of 1.5inches.

On a related note, the SMH10R has a better sound quality than the SMH10 due to a firmware update that is shipping with the SMH10R. Sena is planning to release this firmware update to the SMH10 later this year, so the sound quality will be the same between the two units.

A shopper asked: How long is the battery life from a charge? Jan 17, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Christopher J: The battery life is great. I ride for a few hours nearly everyday with music and phone calls. I throw it on the charger every 4 or 5 days overnight just to be sure it's fully charged. Never had an issue. The battery is pretty big i think its around 600 mah maybe bigger. ive accidentally left it on too, for about 5 hours after a two hour ride, it still had plenty of power. your phone will loose power before this headset does...even if you do have a mophie. lol Aug 20, 2013

A shopper asked: Will these new models connect with the original SMH10? Jan 17, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
RevZilla: Being that this is a brand new device that just become available this week, we haven't actually seen one in our Philadelphia Head Quarters yet. However, Sena products in the past have always been backwards compatible. Considering that the SMH10R is an updated/revised model of the SMH10 we were fairly sure it would work with all other current communication systems from Sena (this has been true of all communication systems from them so far). After checking the online user manual for the SMH10R we found this as confirmation:

"The SMH10R can be paired with all other Sena headset models, such as the SPH10 and the SMH5, for intercom conversation."

A shopper asked: The pictures of the connectors suggest the supplied speakers and audio out of the unit use a proprietary plug-in that doesn't resemble the ubiquitous 2.5mm Sony-type jack. Jan 9, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
RevZilla: The SMH-10R will not have any built in features that would support an auxiliary plug in from a 2.5mm jack. Additionally, as of early 2013 there are no plans for an adapter cable or other similar accessory that would give the user the ability to use their own ear buds. At the moment Sena is still developing accessories specifically for the SMH-10R so we may see something in the future that might allow someone to use their own ear buds. Jan 10, 2013

Steven P: On the company website they indicated that a SMH10R's earbud adaptor will be released before August. They explained the delay is due to the physical time needed to develop, test and conduct other related processes. Hopefully it will be out soon! May 11, 2013

A shopper asked: I own a Nolan N104 and was wondering if the Sena battery pack would fit in the space reserved for Nolan's B4 bluetooth battery pack at the rear of the helmet. Jan 1, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Will M: I can dig up the dimensions if you need but let me save us both the trouble.

My riding buddy has the Nolan N104 and both the speakers and battery fit into the supplied crevices perfectly. : - )

His helmet even has a specific channel for the boom mic to fit into. Sadly, it's on the right side and I if you want the controller on the left side the cables are stretched a bit but it does work.

A shopper asked: Hi Anthony, If I already have a set of speakers built-in to my helmet, can I link this device to them or do I have to use the speakers provided with it? Which would mean I would have 4 speakers in my helmet. Jul 4, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Johnathan L: The speakers are prewired into a small wiring harness that attaches to a relay that the in turn links to the unit itself. If you can wire something yourself then yes. If not, no way. I would just use them as they are designed. I use them on the highway in a Shoei RF1100 daily and they sound pretty good. Jul 8, 2014

A shopper asked: Hello, I'm looking for a bluetooth system to use exclusively for the intercom capabilities between 2 bikes each with a passenger, 4 total riders. I would like to be able to choose between communicating with the whole group of 4 or only my passenger very quickly and simply. Will this be able to provide that capability? I am considering this Sena SMH10R, the Cardo G9, or the Intervoice F5 XT.

Also, I have read that this Sena conferences 4 units together by using one unit as the "main unit", and if the "main unit" is out of range nobody can communicate (say if the two bikes separate, the rider and passenger of the bike that did have the unit designated as the "main unit" will no longer be able to communicate even though they are right next to each other. Please let me know if anyone has experience with this situation. Thank you very much!
