Sena SMH5 Bluetooth Headset Dual Pack
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.

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.

After reading a lot of reviews, I was about to buy another model, but the guys at Revzilla talked me into this one. It installed in two helmets in about 15 minutes. They immediately connected and seemed to work well. This week I got to try them riding across the deserts of Oman and the UAE. They are spectacular. Anyone who wrote a less than glowing report needs a serious priorities check or you received a faulty unit. My son and I rode as far from each other as I could imagin anyone would, especially considering where we were and never a problem. Made the trip pleasurable and definitely safer.

Easy to use, but my head hurts...
I bought the SMH5 solely to use as an intercom with my wife for a long trip we recently did in Spain. It worked great for this purpose, as it was easy to use and had plenty of battery life. It paid for itself in the first hour we used it, as navigating out of Barcelona was challenging. Volume and clarity was good at lower speeds, but was not really very useful at higher speeds, even with the volume at max; it could not overcome the wind noise. All of this said, the speakers caused ear pain for both me and my wife after about an hour, so we were stopping frequently to remove our helmets and take breaks. We both tried moving the speakers around to no avail. We both have quite differently sized/shaped ears and wear different brands of helmet, but had the same problem. Given the discomfort with these speakers, I can't imagine what the larger speakers of the SMH10 would be like. Also, on my Arai RX-Q, I developed a somewhat painful hotspot on the right side of my head which would also show up after wearing the helmet for about an hour. I never had this problem before, so it must be related to installing the SMH5. I reconfirmed the installation of the liner and made sure there were no wires in the area of the helmet where I am having the hotspot. The only thing I can think is that either the clamp-on mounting bracket, or the bundle of excess wire (both of which are on the left side of the helmet) are altering the fit just enough to put more pressure on the right side of my head.

Useful product--watch the video to connect 4 ways
We bought this system because it is compatible with the system our riding friends use. It was easy to install and use with just two on the system. However, connecting all four users required viewing a youtube video and making a diagram. Once that was done, no problem. We could ride all day and part of another on one charge. The clarity was quite good unless the other bike was out of range. It helped with navigation between the bikes and really made it safer to ride.
