Sena SMH10R Bluetooth Headset - Dual Pack
Only way to ride with a friend
Bought the dual pack for my son and I. He is new to riding trails. I felt the constant communication with him would help and make me feel better. I love this, I took it with me on a trip to Costa Rica. I installed it on my friends helmet and it made trip so much more nicer. I thought reception would be a little bit further from what I have been getting. Might be due to areas I have been riding. Charged the night before and kept working for 6-7 hr rides next day with no problems. Another friend at work suggested this to me. I would suggest to anyone that rides friends and family.

Changed my riding experience forever - Can't live without it!
Having not used a bluetooth communicator before I was unsure what to expect. However, from the very first ride I was completely hooked. This headset improves the riding experience 10 fold. Intercom works flawlessly. My only gripe is that the speakers do not have more bass. Install was a breeze.
I highly recommend this product!

Good headset for couples
Bought this headset in the pair for the wife and I. They work well and also work well as a single for connecting to phone, navigation and mp3 player. Overall a good buy.

Such an improvement
Much better performance than the XBi2 units, no issues apart from occasionally dropping out/switching off for an unknown reason. and It can be started up again as normal.

It works very well. The sound quality is okay but could be improved. Buttons are pretty easy to find.

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.
