Up to how many device can I use all together? For now I wanna get 2 units, but I have another 2 friends who are going to get another two, but we were wondering if we can connect all 4 devices us 4 separate riders to communicate?

This has change the concept for me for ride bike, you can chat with your friends while enjoy the road.
up to 150 mph and still clear.

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.

Been using it for a couple of months and no issues. Easy to install, sleek look, and good sound.

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...
