Sena SMH5 Bluetooth Headset Dual Pack
Perfect for My Needs
Just what I was looking for. A reasonably-priced bluetooth system with intercom. I mainly use this to talk with my girl on our rides. We have yet to get our bikes far enough apart that they don't work. I will probably invest in the larger speakers, because the sound is pretty clear but not quite loud enough at high speeds with the helmet vents open or visor cracked. Seems built to last. Install was a cinch. Very happy with this product.

Does the job for a reasonable price
works well with my phone. The noise reducing microphone works well. Most people did not even know I was riding. I ride in the winter and rain and it works great. If you are looking for a nice sound with decent lower frequencies for music and such, your going to be disappointed, but the speaker are upgradable.

Just what you would expect
The intercom works perfect. The speaker's sound (when talking between intercoms), is a little low for noisy helmets but is not impossible to hear.

Worth the investment.
Charge before using. Didn't come with operation instrucrions only assembly instructions but was easy enuf to figure out. Love being able to talk to my husband while we are cruisin. This way if either of us needs to take a break and pull off, point out neat sights or communicate about traffic hazards we can. Sound quality is good. Range seems to be about 400meters which is usually plenty cause we like to ride near eachother. The units seem slightly fragile but we have not broken them yet. I bought the SMH5 because it came as a set of two prelinked units. Definately worth the cost.

Really like these headsets!
My wife and I have been using our Sena SMH5 Bluetooth Headsets for a couple of months now and really like them. We use them primarily on trips. I use mine to talk w/ people over the phone when needed during the day when on my bike and they work great.

Great product for the price. Use it with my wife when we are 2up. Clear communication. Bluetooth music, and simple to use.

It works like it says it will, great for trips and listening to music the blue tooth is touchy at speeds over 60 but could just be my helmet is junk

Ok, my first bet on bluetooth thing.
One of the very first bluetooth communication device that I've brought so far.
At the first look at the photos, the plastic looks flimsy and weak, so I got nervous a little bit at first.
When I open the packet. They're perfect. Just as beautiful as I want to mount it up on my Icon Variant immediately. Don't let the photos fool you, actually the device is tough, well-built, and easy to use.
Communication is great and easy, but it creates some strange background noise, which I have on my iPhone 5 and both of the unit. But the usability is absolutely perfect. I make calls and listen to music (wearing hearing-protective foam), listen to navigation, talk to my buddy on my back, they are just as good, my friends don't even realize that I'm talking while riding, the noise canceling is great.
High price for the thing, I guess. at least, I don't like the idea of sticked battery. as I know it would degrade, no matter what, and I expect these to last at least 3 - 4 years, but maybe I'm too optimistic about that.
If Sena made this HM5's battery to be replaceable, I go with this for life.
