Awesome!
I've been riding on the street for 3 years, and nothing can describe going from complete silence and hand signals, to actually being able to converse clearly with a fellow rider via the Sena SMH10R. Install is as hard or easy as your helmets design. many helmets have provision for a headset install, but this device will attach to just about any helmet out there. I bought a second mount kit so i could move the device from my road helmet to my off road helmet when i felt like it.

Pairing and using the device is as easy as following the clear written instructions. The prompts for different tasks are easily memorized.

There are two issues.
1. if your helmet isn't well insulated it will be difficult to hear yourself speak, and you may feel like you need to shout. the reality is the mic can pick you up fine and is very resistant to road and wind noise.

2. These particular headsets do not work well past line of sight in bluetooth mode. They would work fine if you were using your phone as your source of transmission, but the bluetooth itself has limited strength when the other rider goes out of sight. Once the devices disconnect because of this, they quickly reconnect when they are once again able to pair.

These issues by no means make this a bad product. For the price you will not find a better intercom option.

I would recommend this to anyone who is serious about riding and has friends they cruise with often.

Whether its pointing out a deer in road, a cop around the corner, or informing your wingman you need the restroom, this system is awesome for riders and passengers alike.

Music playback, while clear, does lack bass. It is much better than ear buds though, and you are still able to hear the sounds of traffic around you, and remain safely aware. i did not buy this system for the music capabilities, but they are decent enough.

Great headset, works beautifully
My girlfriend and I each have one of these so we can talk to each other during rides, take phone calls, listen to music, etc.

The range is incredible (for a bluetooth device). It easily goes up to 800 feet or so (given good line of sight). I was still talking to her (albeit a bit crackly from the interference) even once she was out of sight.

I often use it to listen to music and receive phone calls while tethered to my phone. Keep in mind, though, that the audio quality isn't that great; but what can you expect when you're dealing with wind noise and engine noise? I would highly recommend getting the optional earplug adapter, or at least wear earplugs and crank up the volume. The highs tend to be very ear-piercing. With my own earbuds (Shure SE110's), the audio is almost perfect. Occasionally, though, the bluetooth connection with my phone will briefly go out of sync, or crackle, but that's usually only momentary. Once in a while it'll randomly pause, but that might be my phone's fault (it has many problems of it's own).

The microphone is also pretty good (I'm using the wired mic; I haven't tried the boom mic). From what I understand I sound pretty good, even at speed (especially with a chin curtain; still audible without). Once you hit about 65-70mph it can be a LITTLE hard to make out what I'm saying, but that will likely depend on the helmet and wind (I wear a Shoei RF1200).

It fits well in my helmet. I had to cut off the small rings surrounding each speaker to make them fit in the indents, but it hasn't affected performance, what I can tell. All the wires and connectors fit stuffed under the cheek pad, and it's easy to swap out the connector for the earbud connector and the speakers. One note about the velcro for the battery pack: it's very weak. I ended up supergluing the two velcro pieces together to mimic the double-stick tape the controller uses.

So far they are completely waterproof.

Changes the riding experience when you're with other people!
Assuming you like the person you're riding with or the girl on the back of your bike, and you actually want to make conversation with her, as opposed to just taking her for a ride on the bike then a ride off the bike, this headset is awesome.

I used it for a trip down the Pacific Coast Highway with my girlfriend on the back of my bike. It was the first time we ever rode with an intercom, and we were very happy we did.

Install was a little tricky. It was a little difficult to tuck all the wires neatly into the helmet pads, and as a result we have to be careful when putting the helmets on/off.

Connectivity is quick and easy- set it up once and forget it. We just turn them on, wait a few seconds, then we're ready to ride and chat. Hooking it up to my iPhone was easy, and music streams with no problem. Phone calls are clear.

Battery life- we rode all day- ~8 hours- and didn't have any battery issues. For 90% of the riding we'd do, more than a few hours of talk time is sufficient.

Easy of use- the slim design of the buttons are not a problem. You do have to press them relatively hard, but most of the time, we're not even touching the headset.

Overall, this headset is a great addition to any riding group or couple, and it changes the riding experience for the better. It is so cool to be able to chat and talk about things when you're riding. I would definitely recommend.

Good value - works very well
Easy to install in both my Arai RX-Q and my wife's Shoei RF-1100.

Charges easily via USB (I use by Blackberry charger, but any would work).

Syncs up with just a button push, and keeps working at a good distance. Makes riding together much much more pleasurable when we can talk.

The buttons aren't always easy to push with winter gloves, but they're easy enough to find.

Programming it isn't a huge challenge, but can be time-consuming to go through each menu, and each options, but that's a one-time setup.

When riding alone I pair it to my iPhone and can use Siri to listen to music, make calls, and use the GPS. Much better to hear everything than trying to see my phone or GPS in a holder when riding. I don't take my eyes off the road.

An excellent addition for 2 up or riding in a group
My Wife recently bought me the SMH10R "That is why I am writing the review instead of her" it has a lot of awesome features that allow me to connect to my ipod or smart phone while riding solo so I can listen to music and take calls and when riding with the wife (2 up) or with my buddies its nice to have Comms so we can better communicate. I have noticed the comms can have a little static when 2 up I think that is partially due to helmet proximity and is usually around the time the battery is about to die (about 7 hours in voice activation mode) I recently moved to Colorado and rode the bike while the wife drove the van and my kids used Moms helmet to chat with me, at almost 200 yards the audio was very clear. I highly recommend the SMH10R to anyone looking to ride with comms, the low profile is easy to use and doesn't detract from a helmets design. two thumbs way up!!!

Loving every minute of it
I reviewed bluetooth helmet communications for a while now, and decided on the Sena SMH10R for a couple of reasons

1) it was available now (i had been looking at the S20, but the date kept getting pushed back)

2) the price of the dual pack of S10 was equal to a single S20

3) the other reviews i read said it was amazing

4) if i didn't like it i could return it

I am so happy with this product. My girlfriend and I have taken a couple of trips (100+ miles) and were able to talk with each other perfectly. i have actually had to turn the unit down because the speakers are doing a great job.

Installation was not difficult, but it did take me about an hour to do both helmets. I have a modular helmet and she has a 3/4 with a face shield. I installed the wired mic on mine and the boom mic on hers.

I hear very little noise or interference. We have talked with each other, shared music off of a common phone (Galaxy S4), and i have even taken a phone call. The person on the other end of the line did NOT know that i was on my bike.

I ride a 2011 Harley Davidson Heritage Classic and this pair of devices works wonderfully. I would recommend this to any of my friends (if they were smart enough to wear helmets).

works better than hand free in my car
Just got the unti wired up lastnight and went for a test ride this morning. Music is good, bass is a little low but overall sound quality is great. Mic and speakers work well with phone. Up to 75mph on hwy and still able to speak and hear very clearly. Works better than the hands free in my car. The controls take a bit to get used to if you have thick gloves. I would recommned practicing the controls off the bike to get them down before heading out.

We love this! We are still learning the functions but overall it's done well for the purpose we purchased it. Install was tricky but and time consuming but we got it done. Sound clarity is excellent!! Battery life seems very good also. We have used it for approximately 8 hours and have not received the low battery warning. Overall I would recommend this product to anyone who rides with a passenger or in groups!!

Must Buy for Riding with Kids
I installed the Sena SMH10 on my 6 year old sons helmet so we can communicate while riding trails and at the track. It has been awesome as a safety device, to provide encouragement, to recognize that he is struggling, and it's fun to be able to communicate easily. So far all I use is the intercom. I may link the phone for voice calling in emergencies but I don't want it ringing during my recreational time or over a big triple.

Go left here, slow down at this crossing and look for traffic, don't stop on top or you will fall over, stand up there could be hidden obstacles in the tall grass or stop I have fallen (so he does not get lost ahead). It adds confidence if I need to lead, he knows I will not out run him especially if he falls.

Having a compact unit that will not grab branches, is waterproof, and will not get broken after a spill was important. After 6 months all is good. The long term moisture resistance and if I will scrape off the head unit will continue to be tested over time. All I have exposed is the control module and I found a safer spot for the battery.

Jagger S on Apr 28, 2016
These Bluetooth headsets work really well however I wish that they had a longer range. Paired with others in our group I've noticed that we start loosing communication with the other Bluetooth brands once we start getting 20-25 yards or so apart. This also happens between myself and the wife when she gets off the bike and begins to walk away. My buddy has a different Sena Bluetooth model and has no problem talking to his wife between their house and workshop which is 300 feet apart.

Sena replaced a faulty battery pack with no hassels or questions asked when my wife and i were in the middle of a cross country trip. Battery lasts me all day (10-11 hours) and a little more even while listening to music the whole time. Installation on my Icon Variant was easy and is visually minimalistic. Sound quality is good and the microphone has been great as well even in high winds and on the interstate. Used primarily on a 2003 BMW GS1150 Adventure

I understand that it is a communication system dual unit, but my question is can one piece work on its own as a bluetooth media player on the phone and gps connectivity or it has to be always connected as a pair?
A S on Jan 18, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Hi there. It can be used alone as well as paired. I use mine solo all the time. I pair it with my phone and use it for music with a GPS prompt as needed. I absolutely love it. Love the slim profile, and it's so useful during longer rides with my husband. We are averaging about a 3/4-1 mile communication radius if one of us falls behind.
I am looking to get a twin pack and a single unit so that my passenger, my riding buddy and myself can all communicate with one another on lengthy rides. I was curious as to if you can pair each unit to its own bluetooth device? I ask because I may not want to listen to the same music as my passenger or vise versa.
A shopper on Jul 2, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Yes, every unit can be paired with individual bluetooth devices. Actually you can pair each with multiple bluetooth devices and multiple other smh10r units.

Check the manual for specifics. a google search for smh10r manual will get you the official PDF
With the dual pack can I talk to my passenger strictly with the two sets like a walkie talkie or must we both be connected to a phone call through cell phones and work off of bluetooth??
jacob b on Apr 22, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The headsets talk directly to each other using Bluetooth (no phone or cord required). Also unlike a walkie-talkie it's a two way (full duplex) connection so you both can talk at the same time.
I just bought a modular Shoei helmet. Is the cord for the wired mic long enough to open and close the helmet?
A shopper on Jul 4, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Well, it is a pretty long cord. However, you may want to go with the second mic that way it doesn't have to move around. should stay in place as you open your helmet. Hope that helps
Anyone have experience in putting these into Shoei RF 1100's? Easy? PITA?
Chantal H on Apr 15, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Neither my boyfriend nor I have an RF 1100, but my boyfriend and I both have Shoei's and install went really well in both. He has a modular - I do not. All wires tuck in the sides of the helmet/under padding. Speakers fit well in the speaker area and everything works really well on the road. I use the mounted mic on my helmet so I had to install the chin-thing to be able to be heard at speed. I think I'm going to switch over to the boom mic because I can't stand the chin piece installed. Boyfriend uses the boom mic and can be heard on the highway. We haven't quite figured out the range on these things yet, but it's pretty far. Great product.
We always use earplugs. Is the volume sufficient to just use the included speakers?
A shopper on Oct 28, 2013
BEST ANSWER: Yes, but it somewhat depends upon your helmet, speed, wind protection and hearing. I wear foam ear plugs rated at 25 nrr all the time.

Bike to bike communication when dual sport riding was excellent.

75 - 80 mph with minimal wind protection, I personally might have a hard time with a phone conversation.

55 - 60 mph with music, not a problem.

I have a very good helmet and I'm deaf as a post.
Can the battery be mounted inside your helmet?
A shopper on Mar 25, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I had the same thought. I purchased the SMH10R with that in mind. After careful review and much thought, I came to the following conclusion.

In my Arai RXQ, It would be possible to do so. However, I decided that this would not be safe to do.

My Arai is black, when mounted per the instructions it is really not that visible, nor is it in the way. I was able to tuck all the wiring away.

The install looks great.

Is it possible to mount it on a bicycle helmet?
A S on Nov 17, 2013
BEST ANSWER: The Sena comes with 2 speakers and I do not think there would be a comfortable place to mount them inside a bicycle helmet. They could theoretically be mounted on the outside of your helmet since there is no engine noise to contend with. You could then use the boom microphone that is supplied for conversation.
how does the battery last in the cold? I would like to use on my snowmobile helmet.

BEST ANSWER: I emailed the company about the battery capacity, as I couldn't find it listed anywhere. It's a 500mah battery, which is pretty low. In warm weather it holds up tolerably well, but I found it cutting out after a couple hours on some rides. The battery drain is significantly faster if it's used as a voice activated helmet to helmet com system. I anticipate battery life will be less in cold climates, but that's only speculative.

There is a DIY hack if you're interested. Replacing the battery unit with two rechargeable AA batteries would give you 1600mah, over 3 times the capacity, and take up little more room than the stock battery does. It requires a little soldering and a resistor, but would make for a fun little project. Supplies cost about $5 and would greatly increase the versatility and lifespan of the unit.
Is it possible to replace speakers with ear buds for people who ride with half helmets, helmet doesn't actually cover ears?

BEST ANSWER: The speakers are hardwired in place, but they are a standard two-wire setup. If you're handy with a little bit of wiring, I would think you could swap ear buds for the speakers.
