Sena SMH10R Bluetooth Headset - Dual Pack
I recommend it!
I do like my Sena SMH10R. It's quite easy to install and low profile on the helmet. The sound is very clear and my wife don't need shout out with me anymore when we ride.

very good product
Very nice product to have. Easy to use for the most part.very little drag felt on the helmet. My biggist problem was the firm ware updater. Not quite figured out what the problem is yet.

Works as advertised
So far I am happy with the SMH10R. I bought the dual pack and installed them on my wifes Built helmet and my Shoei RF-1100. The installs are pretty straight forward. Plan ahead of time how you want to hide the wires because you may have to get creative depending how you want to mount it. My wife liked hers mounted more forward on the helmet and I had to remount it.
Also, I knew that the slim SMH10R would be a bit harder to use than the SHM10 with the jog dial. The SMH10R can be hard to find while riding or be hard to tell which button you are pushing. I am ok with this though because I like the slimmer profile and I think with time muscle memory will make button mashing less of an issue.

Best helmet comms ever
Bought this two pack for my wife and I for the Harley. Installed in minutes into our Aria XC helmets. The speakers are loud enough for me to wear foam earplugs and still hear my music, navigation and phone calls perfectly. I used the boom microphones, and set them up like the boom miss helicopter crew chiefs wear. I put the mic to where it just touches my lips. When my wife calls, she doesn't know if I am in my car or on the bike. I use an iPhone, and all of the functions come through the headset. It is the easiest thing in the world. It works with pandora, saved music, and will interrupt music for phone calls, and interrupt everything for navigation. Am going to buy another one for my 3/4 helmet that I use with my bobber...

Best Bluetooth headset on the market
Ease of installation, clarity of sound, clarity of microphone, and small packaging.
This unit does it all, connect it to your cell phone and the world is yours. Love streaming music while i ride, and this does it with ease. Calls come in and they are easy to answer and the caller can actually hear you and understand you.
Smallest caveat is the learning curve to get the headset fully set-up and know what all the buttons do, and/or when to push them. Only three buttons to push, you would think it would always be easy right...try again. You press one button when a call is coming in and you answer, but the button right next t hangs up on them. My own personal fail. But I think any new product you get has this same learning curve, didn't take long to figure it all out.
Highly recommended for any riders out there looking to stream music / navigation, while being able to receive calls.

Great communication device
My husband and I used these on our recent 4000 mile, two-bike, month-long trip. Kept us in touch! Easy to use, even with gloves. We had wind noise at highway speeds (Shoei helmets), but still could communicate. We had to be in sight of each other, with no intervening semi's! A reasonable limitation. So glad we bought these. Battery lasted the day, we needed to charge overnight. We did not use them constantly, just for the occasional comment, discussion on routing, where/when we were going to stop, whether to pass, etc. worked great.

Universal Intercom is what makes this product for me
This is a solid comm system, the components are sturdy, easy to install (even for a first-timer like me), loud enough for the highway - although your friend is gonna need to talk a bit louder than usual once you get 80+ mph.
The controls are very easy to use, and it also has a voice so you dont have to guess what mode its in, it'll beep at you and then say "Intercom pairing" or "universal intercom pairing"
If you continue to hold the power buttons (+ and middle button) for a few seconds after it powers on it will tell you the battery level which is AWESOME.
I do wish I could chat with more than 4 people at a time, however in its defense more than 4 would probably be a little much, plus this "negative" is FARR outweighed by the universal intercom. It works, its easy to do, and the fact that I don't have to worry about my riding buddies brand of intercom is great, I've paired up with dudes I met at a gas station no problem, they always say "It's universal! Thats awesome!"
Would ABSOLUTELY recommend.

Great! How did I go so long without this!
I initially bought these to use while on a motorcycle trip to Deal's Gap. I mounted both of them to mine and my wife's helmet which was pretty easy. Instructions weren't the greatest, but I got the jist of it and put them in. I wish they would include an extra set of velcro stickies for use on more than just one helmet. The units themselves have a little bit of a learning curve to them, but after using them 2-3 times we got the hang of connecting rider-rider and to my phone for music and calls. Talk time and battery life is great! I used mine for roughly 9-10 hours listening to music and talking to the wife rider-rider. I tried connecting to my friends chatterbox, but failed. I'm sure it's user error, but it got to complicated to connect. Talking on the phone was amazing! I was going 70 mph and the person on the other end had no idea I was on my motorcycle. I think I would like to change to the dial on the SMH10R or the new 20S. All in all, a great product and for slim looks its perfect. Sena offers a great product and I will continue to purchase from them! Not to mention how much I like RevZilla!
