Sena SMH5 Bluetooth Headset Dual Pack - Boom Mic 4.5 5 91 91
Bang for the buck We had some mics that were great but eventually the antennas broke and one kept cutting in and out. These rock without all the pokey outy bits. September 22, 2014
Worth It Much has been said...here's my take: Install is tricky on a Shoei RF1200/1100 but can be done nicely. You can't have a conversation at highway speed really. But anything slower than let's say 60 is no prob. You can listen to music at highway speed, but you're not going to get audiophile quality. People seriously don't know you're on a bike when you call them on the phone. 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. August 11, 2014
Very clear and easy to set up and use with iphones I would recommend this product for people who want to talk to each other on your bike like husband/wife and others if needed on other bikes. Was easy to install and very clear on phone, music and intercom. August 4, 2014
Great product for the money. Purchased this after reading customer and professional reviews. It works well. Have only had it for a couple of days, so I cannot truly answer the durability question, although it appears to be sturdy and well made. This device makes riding with my wife even more pleasurable. August 1, 2014
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. July 28, 2014
This is a great produce for anyone riding in a group I have since bought a SENA 10 and use the SENA 5 on my extra helmet. July 21, 2014
good. Nice sound. Easy to hear through my earplugs at speed. Conversations with my wife on intercom are clear with no dropped words. July 21, 2014
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! 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! :-) Recommended! July 21, 2014

Apr 28, 2014
Philip W: Seemed like the thing to do at the time. I mainly want rider/passenger intercom. Apr 28, 2014
Michael E: 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. Apr 19, 2014
Martin M: - good price
- nice functions
Mar 28, 2014
Richard K: Great reviews Mar 4, 2014
Richard B: 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. Feb 17, 2014
Darren L: 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. Jan 9, 2014
Clayton G: 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. Dec 30, 2013
Jason S: I picked these because of the features, the price, the free shipping, the awesome info video, and the customer reviews. Really impressed with what I've seen from Revzilla so far. Thanks! Dec 7, 2013
Phillip L: Great value. Great reviews. Easy setup. Nov 19, 2013
Johan v: Best tested in US and Europe. Fantastic value for money Oct 10, 2013
Nelson A R: So my non-riding wife and I could talk to each other whenever she's riding with me. Sep 3, 2013
Philip M: Listening to music and talking while 2-up. Aug 27, 2013
Justin D: I previously used these headsets before a high-speed accident which destroyed one. I'm now buying these for myself and another friend, because the quality is great and the ability to communicate is crucial. Aug 23, 2013
Ruben A: 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. Aug 14, 2013
J. Luis V: After reading some reviews of the late bluetooth in helmet communicators, I decided for this particular brand and model, as usual I found the best deal at Revzilla. Aug 10, 2013

Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Christopher J: 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. Oct 9, 2013

A shopper asked: Can you listen to music from a radio app on you iphone? Aug 28, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Stephen S: 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!

A s: Yes, it works at least with Pandora on the 4S and 5. It also works with the native iPod player. When a call comes in or another user contacts you via the intercom the music stops. After the 2 way communication or phone call the music resumes. You can also skip songs by pressing in on the big black button and turning it toward the back of your helmet. Aug 28, 2013
Reply to A Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Philip M: Yes. You can listen to music, answer calls, use Siri, and anything else you can normally do with a Bluetooth stereo headset. I do recommend that you practice with the controls while wearing gloves to get familiar with the feel of skipping songs and such; it just makes it easier to use and less distracting. Aug 28, 2013
Reply to Philip Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
wayne s: Yes. I have an iPhone 4S and always have Bluetooth connected. If pandora or another music app is open then that will be the main audio source. If you didn't open any app and held the jog dial for the 2 beeps you will play music from your phones collection. Hope this helps Aug 28, 2013

A s: I have used Pandora on my iphone 4. I was not always able to skip to the next song but I have not updated my Sena to the latest version yet.

I am able to use google music and Spotify on my Galaxy s3 and the Sena.

Toby R: 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. Aug 29, 2014

Berkeley F: The two units in a "dual pack" are identical and parallel. Either can pair not only to each other, but to other devices. Why, however, you would want to talk on a cell phone while riding is a mystery to me! But if you want to split your concentration between riding and yakking -- these units WILL do that. Good luck. You'll NEED it. Best! Sep 25, 2013

Bob E: I haven't used it that way, but I understand that each unit can pair with a separate bluetooth enabled phone. They can not share the same phone even if they are both paired to it. If that is the case, the main unit will connect and the passenger unit will not. Sep 26, 2013
Reply to Bob Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Mike S: YEs the units are identical, so you can use both for talking to other riders and phone use. There isn't a master and a slave unit, they are both the same. Using my iPhone I listen to music, gps nav, siri, and iradar. Sep 25, 2013
Reply to Mike Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)

John O: Hi, I am not an expert. Look at it this way. From SMH5 to SMH5, the conductivity between the units is seamless. Add bluetooth phone, it will work on SMH5(unit one) only. If you wish the bluetooth phone, with streaming music to work on both units you need SM10. I bought mine from Revzilla. Best to call Sena if in doubt. When both units are listening to music, you tap to talk

I cant add a link, but google sm10 and see the chart

radmandan: 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! Aug 27, 2012

Trump48257: 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. May 23, 2012

RevZilla: No, you can only pair one phone with one headset. For that reason, you will not be able to listen to the same music on two different headset as each one of them has to be paired with a different phone. May 30, 2012

anderd4: I looked at lots of reviews to piece together the differences. Some of them changed due to software updates - for example now both of the units are bluetooth 3.0.

SMH-10 has:
- longer battery life
- longer operational range (distance between headsets)
- 4-way simultaneous conference
- different connector style (external contacts vs. plug)
- better speakers

Am I missing any major ones?

Trump48257: Main differences:

Range: SMH10 has twice the range of the SMH5
Line-In Support: The SMH10 Can accept mini-stereo line in (this is the only if you and your passenger can both listen to the same music with the use of a Y-splitter)
Conference Intercom: SMH10 you can talk with multiple people simultaneously; however, the SMH5 can only talk with one other unit at a time.

A shopper asked: 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. Jun 10, 2014

Berkeley F: 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.

RevZilla: The standard SMH5 will not work on an open face helmet, unless it's a 3/4. If you have a 1/2 helmet, your options are the Sena SPH10H Bluetooth Intercom For Half Helmets or Sena SPH10H-FM Bluetooth Intercom With FM Tuner For Half Helmets. Apr 25, 2013

wiremonkey: I would say no since the boom mic is fairly short and only has a velcro mount. You might be able to buy a longer boom, but I don't know. The SMH10 boom is designed for this is and much longer and hard mounted to the unit. May 15, 2013

AF2013: If you have the boom mic, the SMH5 s/b fine w/ an open-face (3/4) helmet. I don't believe it would work well with a half helmet.

As an aside, I would recommend a full-face helmet for safety considerations.

Juan G: Hello. I have the smh5 headsets and in the beginning we could not hear clear maybe because the noise of the wind in our helmets. We fix this using some swimming ear plugs, now the sound is much clear. Sep 25, 2014

A shopper asked: If my passenger and I are paired with seperate devices listening to seprate music can we still communicate with each other over bluetooth intercomm? If not is this something that is offered on the smh10? Listening to seperate music is not a big deal as we differ in tastes anyways.

Thanks,

Chris

RevZilla: Both the Sena SMH5 Bluetooth and the Sena SMH10 Bluetooth can pair with separate music devices and still have a communication channel between another headset. Of course, you would need to switch to the communication channel when you feel like talking, so the music does not drown out the person speaking, but this is done by simply hitting a button or speaking loudly into the mic. This way, you and your passenger have the option to talk, as well as enjoy your own individual tastes in music. We wonder who will be rocking to metal while the other listens to a serenading ballad.

A shopper asked: Will it fit my Schubert C3 helmet because of the sun shade slider? Mar 2, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
RevZilla: The SMH5 is a great option for the Schuberth C3. Because the boom microphone is detached from the helmet clamp portion of the SMH5, the microphone does not interfere with the slider for the internal sun visor. Mar 5, 2013

A shopper asked: I have a couple Sena SMH-10 headsets, does the intercom function work with the SMH-10 as well? Or only with the SMH5? Feb 8, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
RevZilla: Currently Sena products will inter-comm with other Sena products, but not Cardo products or Interphone (or any other brand for that matter). The same is true for the other Bluetooth systems that offer an Inter-comm feature, they are all brand specific and will not function with inter-comm devices from another brand.

On a related note, anytime you connect two different units from the same brand, the inter-comm range will decrease to that of the lower end device. For Sena specifically, when the SMH-5 is paired with an SMH-10, the range of the SMH-10 (900 meters or 980 yards in open terrain) will be decreased to that of the SMH-5 (400 meters or 437 yards in open terrain).

Toby R: When we ordered the upgraded speakers a couple years ago they came for just one unit. Original speakers have a great sound and do not distort, even with the visor open. I had an issue with a wire to an original speaker, and ordered upgraded speakers to replace it. Well worth the cost, as they can go even louder and fill the ear holes in the helmet better.
