Sena SMH10R Bluetooth Headset - Dual Pack
Good product, GREAT customer service!
My fiance and I bought a set, and we love them. The sound quality is good, considering how small the speakers are. We always wear earplugs, and even with them in, we can have a conversation up to about 70mph. I love being able to bluetooth to my phone and listen to music on those boring stretches of road. Answering a phone call is easy, and I have had amazing results talking to people on the phone (going 40-50mph, and they have no idea I'm talking through my mic in my helmet).
We did have a couple technical issues with the headsets, but this is where Sena was OUTSTANDING! They were incredibly responsive, polite, and helpful! We had a headset fail right before our trip, and they went out of their way and made sure to get us set up before our departure date!! If you have difficulty with your unit, send them an email - they're great.

I bought the dual pack for myself and my son, so he would have the functionality of bluetooth, hands free phone, and be able to talk with me when we ride. The product has performed wonderfully and meets and somewhat exceeds our expectations. Glad to endorse this. We also bought the second battery pack as an add on for those time that we forget to charge before riding.

Sleek and Lightweight! Works very well
Great product! Just as described. Works very well, and is very small and sleek - not the typical big bulky thing on the side of your helmet. Installed super well in my Shoei with pockets that fit the earpieces super well, but in the Arai we've had to do a little pad modification to locate the earpieces appropriately. Otherwise installation was pretty simple and straight forward! Voice activation takes some adjusting of sensitivity and getting used to, as wind noise would initially trigger it. Easier to just press the center button. Buttons are large and easy to get used to though. Sounds quality is good once earpieces and mics are located ideally. At high speeds wind noise does interfere some though (70+).

Sena Intercom transforms the riding experience
My wife and I took a 3 day motorcycle trip with our new SENA helmet intercom and were amazed at how much the riding experience was improved. I wholeheartedly recommend this product and Revzilla.

Low profile functionality
Ordered and mounted our SMH-10R units a few weeks ago.
- the install is simple, but will take time to adequately route all the cables/wires under the foam of the helmet. Some disassembly of the helmet liner is recommended and makes your life a lot easier.
- Battery: depending on the curvature of your helmet, the battery, either mounted via velcro or a dual-sided sticky pad, may not fit in the center-rear of your helmet.
-- case in point: on the Shark Evoline 3, it does fit dead center rear. On the Caberg Tourmax it does not, but has to sit off center to catch enough curvature of the helmet for the adhesive to stick to more than 90% of the surface.
Operation is quite simple and battery life is adequate so far.
Sound quality is good on phone calls, I am using ear buds connected to the included headphone jack cord. However, music sound quality leaves a bit to be desired. I have used several inner-ear buds to double check, and no-name brand up to Klipsch, they are all clipping the bass pretty badly. Only cure at that point, is to turn the volume down quite a few. I'm not listening to music overly loud to begin with, so this is a but more of a surprise I'm currently not too happy about.
Otherwise, it's a solid set, cheaper than most competitive brands and it does the job well, which overall, makes it a recommendable product.

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!!!

ride changing experience
bought the two-pack for my wife and I. i love this thing on my daily commute. I love being able to listen to music and also make phone calls if needed. pairs well with the iphone 5 and Siri functionality. the control takes some getting used to, but is easy to use after that. install was easy. i know some have posted about the low-profile mic being poor quality, but we have no trouble with it. great clarity on intercom, but have only tried it 2-up. sharing music over the intercom is a great feature and a sinch as well. i would certainly buy this again and look forward to the 20, though the price seems a bit steep.

This headset is very helpful and useful. Very easy to hook up to my android phone and also to link to other intercom devices. Love it!
