Perfect Headset
The SENA SMH5 is perfect. It does everything as expected, and I use it in my Shoei Qwest with earplugs in and still hear everything fine. The headset has a priority sequence so that phone calls will interrupt the intercom or music and you can choose to take the call or not. It really is a great product and the dual pack is a great price on Revzilla.

Worth It
Much has been said...here's my take:<br><br>Install is tricky on a Shoei RF1200/1100 but can be done nicely.<br><br>You can't have a conversation at highway speed really. But anything slower than let's say 60 is no prob.<br><br>You can listen to music at highway speed, but you're not going to get audiophile quality.<br><br>People seriously don't know you're on a bike when you call them on the phone.<br><br>Overall really pleased with this though. If the speakers were a bit louder and didn't distort at full volume, it would be the best thing ever.

Very easy to pair and use
This was soooo easy to pair with each other and my Droid X2. My buddies have other systems that are way more complicated to pair with and now they are jealous. Phone sound and my voice quality on the other end is phenomenal. GPS navigation and music work very well also. I am glad they did not try and put a huge amount of bass in the speakers, as I think this would make it hard to hear ambulances and police vehicles.<br><br>Quick user handout is easy to understand and memorize.<br><br>I have not rated durability yet, because I have only had this almost 2 weeks.

Nice BT set but watch for product defects
Instructions are straight forward and pairing with Droid phone and Garmin GPS was very easy. Only issue was that one of my headset units had the mic plug miss-wired. I finally figured out that I had to plug the mic in the opposite way (not lining up arrows) to get it to work. BTW, Sena tech support was useless.

Nothing compares for this price
Great product for the wife and I to talk on my motorcycle. Has great clarity even on her half helmet. Installation was relatively straightforward...just requires a little thought based on your helmet style (really easy on my modular helmet, but had to be a little more ingenious for her half helmet). Mic positioning is easily adjustable and stays put. Streams audio well from my Android phone for both music, calls, and GPS. Have yet to try the intercom feature between two motorcycles at this time. Really I think this is probably the best bang for the buck on the market. Only major limitation is that you can only talk to one other person at a time unlike the SMH10 in which you can conference with several people simultaneously.

Couldn't be happier.
I only gave a rating of average for durability because I have only have the product for 3 months. I spent several months reviewing various products and am glad I decided on this one. Placement of the speakers is important, but they do include pads to get them close to the ears.

Works great, changed the whole 2-up experience
Received my sets promptly, as always from Revzilla. Installation is a bit fidgety, routing the wires under the lining of the helmet, and placement of the speakers required some experimentation, but once in everything worked great! Except, the plug kept falling out of the unit while riding... Contacted Revzilla support, who got me in touch with Sena support, who promptly replaced my sets with updated units with a locking connector! Amazing service, and an all-round good experience!<br>Since then I use it every time I ride, as a bluetooth headset for my phone, when I'm alone, or to be able to chat with my wife when she comes along. Changed the whole experience, far more civilized than yelling over my shoulder and hand signals with the free hand! :-)<br>Recommended!

Great product at a great price
These are my first bluetooth intercoms and they are fantastic. For the price I think they are unbeatable, I researched the alternatives and the small size along with the price were what tipped the scale for me. Also, the universal pairing from Sena is a deal breaker.

So Far, Excellent Device
Note that this is based on limited experience so far- using it only as a rider-passenger intercom so no distance involved. I can say at this point that the unit performs very well with clear communication up to 50mph. Wind noise starts to make it progressively more difficult to hear/understand up to about 65 where it's hit or miss. This using full face helmets on an unfaired bike.<br><br>Up to that point, sound is clear, and it is quite a revelation to be able to communicate so clearly with my wife. I use foam earplugs when riding, and I can still hear quite well- they may even help with clarity as my wife- who was not using earplugs- had more difficulty understanding me than I had understanding her.<br><br>The unit itself does contribute to wind noise with the left side of my helmet noticeably louder than the right side. Not a huge amount more, but noticeable. All in all, a great addition at a relatively good price.<br><br>I have not tried making/receiving a phone call, and don't intend to use it for that. I did try some music off the bike, and it sounded decent, but don't expect deep bass or concert-hall sound.<br><br>Intended use is primarily as an intercom for me and my wife, and a riding friend if he gets one. Secondarily would be for use with my phone's GPS for handsfree directions.<br><br>Construction seems very good and well thought out with very secure mounting to the helmet. I bought the optional wired, flat mic for installation in my full face helmet. Reasonably priced at $8 each plus $5 for shipping.<br><br>I had bought Blinc units from Cycle Gear, but returned them after further research. The mounting was not nearly as secure, the same port used for the speakers/mic was used for charging, the wires would hit the surface if you placed the helmet on a flat surface, and the unit just lacked the quality feel of the Senas.

Philip W on Apr 28, 2014
This will be the second set of these I have bought. Not because there was anything wrong with the first set but because the first set is so awesome that I need two more for my kids so we can all talk. My son and I wore these while riding ATV's at the Sand Dunes and it was so awesome that we decided everyone in the family needs them so we can all talk while riding. I would highly recommend these to anyone.

Richard K on Mar 4, 2014
After researching the SMH10R, SMH10, SMH5 -FM and the SMH5, I decided to go with this model because of the simplicity and the fact that none of the reviews stated the speaker quality was anything to brag about when listening to music. I will use this until a model with decent sound comes out, then I'll probably upgrade.
Richard B on Feb 17, 2014
communication with passenger while on tour with a good price and features I was looking for. I don't need bike to bike communication and this model comes with the upgraded speakers and connections.
Darren L on Jan 9, 2014
As a fairly new rider i wanted an inexpensive yet reliable (according to the reviews) intercom system to be able to communicate with my passenger or my son (also a novice rider). I believe for the price this unit will meet or hopefully exceed my needs? I will be happy to comment on it once we have had an opportunity to use it.

Wanted a simple BT system mainly for intercom use with a passenger for a riding vacation in Europe. I have no plans to ever use this system for listening to music or anything like that. The SMH5 seems like it will fit the bill.

RICKIE T on Nov 28, 2015
Do i need to purchase an additional mic to use this unit with a fullface helmet?
A shopper on Oct 9, 2013
BEST ANSWER: it helps. wind at higher speeds can trigger the vox. It works best for phone calls, bike to bike and music via bluetooth with a full face. At slower commuting speeds, I have used it without issue with my Schuberth flip up. I would say you have a 35mph threshold where the wind can take over.
Can you listen to music from a radio app on you iphone?
A shopper on Aug 28, 2013
BEST ANSWER: Yes that feature works great. Listen to music, music from your library on the or even web based streaming music and if you get a phone call or "tap" from another SMH5 it will answer it automatically if you want or by "tap" answer.
HOWEVER DO NOT BUY THE SMH5. It will make you very frustrated. The sound quality for music is only mid to high range, your songs will not sound the same. If you are connected to another device you get wind noise during intercom connection. The 4 pin fitting will blow out of the unit causing silence. Then you start duct taping it to the device, but it will still blow out causing you to constantly be messing with it. If your wife is the other rider she may get frustrated with the sporadic disconnects!! Also they had to replace 2 microphones, which they did for free. I am told by creditablesources that the SMH10 is much better. I said hard for me to believe. I am already planning to save up and buy something else!
do both units have bluetooth phone capabilities? or is it only the main unit that can pair with a phone. basically i'm asking if both units can be used for phonecalls while in use.
A shopper on Sep 10, 2013
BEST ANSWER: Wife and I have this set and both have Bluetooth phones. Our headsets are paired with our phones. When I turn on my headset, it finds my phone and not my wife's. (There have been a couple times after we've charged the units where we've put them on the wrong helmets. Didn't know it until her mom called me and wondered why I had her phone...) When a call comes in, you tap to answer it, tap to end and the music picks right back up where it left off. When you want to talk to the other person, you tap and it pauses your music and the other rider's music to talk.
Are the headsets able to communicate directly, like walkies, or do you need a cell phone to connect them?
A shopper on Aug 13, 2012
BEST ANSWER: You don't need to use a cell phone to use the two way comm. feature. IMO though the iPhone is perfect, as I have access to my iTunes and can use the SMH 5 to skip songs and replay them etc... The music automatically fades out when a call comes in either from two way or the phone then automatically kicks in after a few seconds when your conversation is done. Hope this helps!
The unit works great, but I cannot get both to sync and listen to music/GPS directions at the same time.
A shopper on May 22, 2012
BEST ANSWER: No. While you can pair both an audio device (e.g iPod Touch) and a Phone to the SMH5, you can only send audio from an iPod or phone to one headset. The SMH10 is capable of this using a Y-splitter and connecting both headsets with a mini stereo cable to the audio source.
I bought the smh5 headsets 2 weeks ago when my wife and I ride its not to clear but when you are farther apart they are clear as a bell has anyone else had this problem? sorry
A shopper on Sep 24, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I have had the smh 5 for more than a year and have not had this problem. Or any other problem for that matter. Very clear audio, conversation or music. I have read that Sena has great customer service. Google the number and try them. You may have a bad mic or something else simple.
should i ask for it separately
A shopper on Jun 23, 2012
BEST ANSWER: You can upgrade the speakers for the SMH5, but ear bud use is a no-go. I've had thoughts of getting the 10 for this reason, but it would be for a touring-oriented ride. In and around, the 5 is great.
so what's the main difference/s between the SMH-5 and the SMH-10? Other than one being Bluetooth Vs. 2.0 and the other 3.0, I can't really seem to tell much of a difference.
A shopper on May 17, 2012
BEST ANSWER: Both models use Bluetooth v3.0. The main differences are as follows.

SMH-5

Bluetooth Intercom up to 400 meters in open terrain
Up to 8 hours talk time, 7 days stand-by time
10-pin connector
Charges via USB
SMH-10

Bluetooth Intercom up to 900 meters in open terrain
Up to 8 hours talk time, 10 days stand-by time
Up to 4-way conference intercom
Built-in AUX port
Pogo pin connector
Multipoint (can be connected to two sources at same time)
Phone conference
Intercom VOX
Wall charger included
Does this item come with headsets (hardware) for two helmets? Or just one?
A shopper on Jul 4, 2015
BEST ANSWER: they come for two. Have them for more than a year and I use them everyday, They are great!!
Will this system work with the HJC IS-MAX BT Bluetooth Helmet? My wife and I have a pair of these for riding our ATV's. We have been using midland GMRS radios with headsets and boom microphones but, lately have had very poor luck with them. The headset seem to last a very short time before going bad in one way or another. If the Bluetooth system will work, I will be sure to try it.
A shopper on Jun 10, 2014
BEST ANSWER: The Sena "dual" kit (which has systems for two headphones), is a generic, external mount Bluetooth intercom (etc.) system. I installed in on our two Nolan flip-up helmets with little problem (some fiddling).

By the way, make SURE you keep the firmware on both your Sena units updated. The company continuously improves (and de-bugs) these units, but those improvements can't happen unless you regularly check into to their website and update firmware (which is quite easy to do, unless you are seriously "computer-impaired."

The company also was great about replacing one of our two units which died after a few weeks use. No questions, no cost to us. A great unit.
