Sena SMH10R Earbud Adapter Cable 5 5 11 11
Awesome but too long Super easy to install, works well, perfect if you want to hear more. I ride a naked bike and used this on my way up to Canada because the air and road noise is too much for me to actually hear the other people I'm ridding with if I don't have ear buds in. It worked well but you have quite a bit of spare cable to tuck away in your jacket which is kind of obnoxious but it's forgivable for the price. September 30, 2015
Simple product. Worth every penny. This is a pretty basic product. It simply attaches to the speakers port on the Sena SMH10R headset, and provides a 3.5mm headphone jack for any standard headphones/earbuds. I prefer earbuds to the speakers that came with the SMH10R. Installation is a little tricky if you want all the wires hidden. I was able to make cutouts in my helmet's impact foam to run the headphone jack and cable coil internally. Basically all you see on my helmet is the SMH10R battery pack, interface buttons, and then my earbuds hanging out from between the wind skirt and left cheek pad. I personally use the SkullCandy SmokinBuds, as their frequency response is pretty flat, the bass comes through where its intended, the silicone plugs isolate sound very well, and they're inexpensive enough to replace as often as I might break them (only about $10-25 bucks/set on that popular online store thats based in Seattle).

Awesome This adapter cable is amazing because it allows you to use headphones with much clearer sound quality than the speakers. June 1, 2015
Works great Works great but a bit long and fiddly. Needs to be tucked into my jacket. October 13, 2014
Simple, effective, easy to use, removable Works great and is very easy to install and uninstall. Great product, especially for the price. September 15, 2014
Good Buy I bought this in case I didn't like the sound quality of the speakers, however I have yet to use it. I was happy with the sound quality from the speakers, however I will use it when I get custom ear bugs and for the price you can't beat it July 28, 2014
Does exactly what it's supposed to do. This product works exactly as expected. Great if you want to use earbuds for longer rides where wind noise might be high. May 19, 2014
Cheap add on for better sound than the speakers and cuts out wind noise Bought this because I wanted to try my Bose ear buds when I ride. The sound is much clearer than using the default speakers. Since they were so cheap, there' not much to complain about besides that there are more wires to deal with. April 28, 2014

Brady M: because i wanted good sound quality for my music and the noise cancelling advantage of headphones. May 29, 2015
Jon C: This is an experiment, to see if ear bud work better at highway speeds. Have not tried foam ear plugs but intend to try both. The SENA microphones are very clear even with wind noise, vent open or closed. May 18, 2015
Kenshiro O: My ears are weird, I want to use my buds. May 3, 2015
javier m: The Sena SMH10R Bluetooth is awesome on city streets, but on the freeway the wind doesn't let me hear my music very well. A revzilla rep recommended this item and it should make my riding experience a lot better thanks guys. Apr 24, 2015
Dan D: wanted to use my Sena system with my bose headphones Apr 17, 2015
Clint A: My dual sport helmet was to loud with wind noise to run speakers, so I need away to wear earbuds. Mar 30, 2015
Kevin S: My helmet pads may not hold the speakers in place as well as I would like so I opt for ear buds also. Mar 28, 2015
C U: I wanted to be able to use my custom molded headphones wireless through my SENA SMH10. Mar 27, 2015

Peter C: Lets you use earbuds with the SMH10R. Works really well. Feb 19, 2015
Stephen P: For improved sound quality versus the helmet mounted speakers Nov 20, 2014
Jin P: So I can use my earphones instead of plugs. The regular speakers distort easily and don't keep out road noise. Earphones that go deep and double as plugs are the way to go for long rides. Nov 9, 2014
Michael B K: At times I prefer ear buds while riding. This product will add the ability to use earbuds if I should choose to. Sep 20, 2014
Alex S: I needed this adapter to hook up different speakers to my Sena SMH10R. Sep 15, 2014

Joshua T: speakers are ok in the helmet, but lack any low frequency and at higher speeds or windy areas, are hard to hear. Jul 13, 2014
Steven S: Hoping to improve the sound quality by using my own ear buds in lieu of the supplied speakers. Jul 12, 2014
Tom Y: So I can listen to music with my earbuds which doubles as earplugs. Jul 1, 2014
Jim M: This should be packaged with the SMH10R. Ear buds are really the way to go here Jun 8, 2014
Mark K: Prefer earbuds to speakers for sound quality (lower volume too) and replace the earplugs May 20, 2014
William L B: I want to get sound isolating earphones and plug them into my SMH10R intercom for longer highway trips. It can be hard to hear the speakers over the wind noise at higher speeds when I have ear plugs in. There are sound isolating earphones that are rated to block about the same amount of noise as a standard foam ear plug so I can still have hearing protection and not have to turn my intercom too high. May 19, 2014
Eric C: Prefer to use my earbuds May 2, 2014

A shopper asked: Hi, I have the Sena SMH10 dual pack and am looking for a way to use earbuds instead of the speakers - will the SMRH10R earbud adaptor work on my units - will the square end of the adapter wire plug into the charging port???? also looking for a wall charger unit for the SMH10.
Thank you

J P F: The adapter is designed to plug into the same cable that the helmet speakers plug into, not the charging port. Super easy, just swap out the speakers for this cable, there is only one possible place to plug it in as each plug is a different shape. As for the wall charger, any USB charger will do - if you have one for your phone/table/iPod/etc. then you're good to go. The charging cable is a standard Micro USB plug too, so it is easily replaced. Aug 21, 2014

Steve R: The earbuds plug right into a port on the helmet assembly that has the boom microphone with I believe a standard 3mm female receptacle into which the earbud jack fits. I charge the SMH 10 with a standard USB cable off a laptop. The same cable charges the smart phone. Alternatively the Android wall charge cable also charges the SMH10. I have an HTC Google phone.

Robert B: My wife uses custom earplugs with speakers. Get the Sena helmet base with a earbud port. It's about $25 - $26. Call Sena their customer support is great. For charging, any decent USB charger will work. I got a five port 40 watt charger at Amazon that works great. Charges both Sena units, two iPhones, and an iPad at the same time. Aug 21, 2014

A shopper asked: Hi. I'm considering the SMH10R communicator. I'm a bit confused, though. Does it come with the battery pack or is that an optional item -- or is the battery pack that is sold separately designed to be a backup? Jul 31, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Alex S: Hi. The package includes the battery. The adapter is used for speakers with the 3.5mm jack. I use this with the Torx speakers which gives considerably more volume and a fuller bass. Torx also has an amp but you will have to route wires inside your jacekt and put he amp in your internal jacekt pocket. The amp rocks! One of these days i will splice the Torx wires to the standard Sena connector since all these wires tightens the fit of my helmet. The new Shoei RF1200 has speaker wells built in so next year i'm changing out. Jul 31, 2014

Kenneth J: You've asked the question not on the actual units page, but the earbud adapter page. Regardless, the smh10r comes standard with a battery. I do not have any additional battery, so I would assume the battery sold separately is meant for either a replacement or backup. If used as a backup the mounting may be a little difficult. If I recall correctly, unlike the unit itself, the battery is stuck on to the helmet via adhesive instead of a velcro. That said it could be difficult to swap them around. Jul 31, 2014

Christina M: There is a battery pack as part of the SMH10R
It is designed to be placed on the out side back of the helmet. By having the battery seperate from the rest if the unit allows for the thin profile on the side of the helmet.
Hope that helps.
