Sena SMH5-FM Bluetooth Headset - Boom Mic 4.6 5 39 39
Great basic comm system Purchased the SMH5 to go on a modular helmet that I've used for years. Because of the thickness of the modular shell on that side, I chose to use the adhesive mount and it went on perfectly... stuck in the speakers and boom mic and off we went. It took less than 5 minutes to install, pair with my cell phone, and program a handful of preset FM stations. Radio reception is fantastic here in the city and I wouldn't ever ride without it. October 19, 2015
A must have for my hour daily commute. I was rocking earbuds for a short time and that just was awful so I picked up my Sena. I went with the SMH5-FM for the radio and I must say it is a wonderful addition to my gear. Install: Was not too eventful, (I would suggest looking on Youtube to see someone do it before you do it, directions were not all that great) I have a Modular helmet with a Sun shade button (LS2 FF386) and the placement was messing with the slide so I had to adjust. It was very forgiving on adjusting. Sound Quality: At first I thought the speakers were terrible for my first few rides until I noticed that the pre-cut speaker holes in my helmet didn't match up with my ear canals at all. I adjusted their position to hit my ear canal and they are much better. Base could be better, but by all means not terrible. Function: Jog shuttle is very easy to use to turn, down, track select, etc. It syncs flawlessly to my Nexus 6 every time I turn it on. Battery life is good, last for about 6 hours of constant music play before I have to recharge. I haven't synced it with another rider so I can't speak on that, but the FM function is great. I would suggest practicing with it before you jump on for a ride, to perform the functions takes some button push combos, not quite Mortal Kombat complicated, but enough to practice so you aren't distracted by it while riding. Build Quality: It is high quality and durable. You can take it off and on again without where. It's tactile when pushed so you feel all the button presses. You get a nice "hello" and "goodbye" when you turn on and off. It does stick out a little bit so I can't fit My helmet in my frunk with it on :( but the trade off is I know where it is if I need to go to it to change channels. September 25, 2015
product works well I use it to listen to music when I ride. I have a modular helmet (NOLAN) and there is a lot of wind noise. Sometimes it drowns out the music. I would like the volume to be louder. I cleaned surface with laquer thinner before using the included tape to attach to helmet. after 2 weeks, it came loose. backing on tape separated. It is now on with Velcro. August 3, 2015
Product was exactly what I was looking for Product seems to be very good quality. This is my first headset so really cannot compare with any other. Installation instructions leave a little bit to be desired, but not hard to install despite them. A little tricky learning all of the functions, but will get them. August 3, 2015
Excellent product I use the sena smh 5 fm in my speed and strength ss1700. The sound quality is superb. The phone feature is also amazing quality. I highly recommend the the fm versions of these units over the other. You won't be disappointed! June 15, 2015
Excellent solution - good price The install setup works really well, once I took the time to figure out pieces and connection points. The install instructions are not so helpful. Have not yet used the phone or intercom features - only music and radio access. The sound quality for music is good, and volume is decent considering road noise at highway speeds (using only a small to mid-size sport-touring windscreen). Bought the boom mic version for my modular Shoei; the boom post had the tendency to uncomfortably press up against the side of my chin at speed (not a lot of room in the helmet - could be the helmet). Since I wasn't using it for communication I took it out and eliminated the discomfort. I would consider trying to configure a wired mic instead of boom for communication in the future. Need to listen to music on road trips, and for that, this product is a great and high quality solution. Used the fm receiver a bit in cities and it worked fine. The jog dial can be a bit touchy to operate with gloves - skipping tracks when I was trying to turn the volume up - but generally is a good solution most of the time. Very happy with this purchase. June 1, 2015
Great communicator Great communicator, does everything I want it to. I was surprised but I can hear people clearly with it and in my closed faced helmet my wife says it is clearer than when I'm driving my truck. The only think I would change is that it would notify you sooner before it dies, within 2 minutes of notification the communicator dies. May 4, 2015
great product Inexpensive multifunction product. I'm still learning the controls, not complicated just don't need everything yet. Plenty loud but could use a little more bass. April 20, 2015

Bryson W: Seems to be a good product at an acceptable price. Apr 12, 2015
Benedikt S: This will be my first headset and before shelling out $270 for the S20, I wanted to see if I like using one for music and phone calls at all. If i do, I will probably move this to another helmet and upgrade (unless this proves to be all I need, which it may just do - after all, who wants to talk to 8 people at the same time when riding a motorcycle) Apr 12, 2015

Carlos F: I needed something to play music and hear GPS instructions. Unfortunately, I found out GPS for cars don't have the kind of Bluetooth that transmits audio to BT headsets. Which is why I'm now using my Android mobile phone with offline GPS software as my GPS. May 7, 2014

Jose V: I believe that it is. My helmet has an interesting cut and sena gives you the choice of mounting with a double sided tape to mount any where on your helmet or you can use the clamp and attach it on the left rim of the helmet. I called Revzilla and they tried it out out on my helmet first then called me back. I hope this helps. I love this product. Very easy to use and the sound quality is excellent up to 75 with open face helmet and more with closed helmet. Jan 29, 2014

Michael S: I would say if you are using a full face helmet or the full face wich opens like got I would go with mic that as no arm on it just. The round one that sticks on it works great even with the flip up full face the with the arm would work for open face helmet. Btu the way it's a great unit I love if long battery Jan 30, 2014

Benjamin Groves J: It seems pretty universal, tough to answer the question without knowing the exact helmet you're planning to put it on. I have it mounted on an open face 3/4 helmet and a full face helmet and both were easy to mount the Sena to. Feb 1, 2014
Patrick K: Yes . the one with the boom mic should fit and 3/4 or flip up those are the two I use .I'm sure that revzilla staff can help too- I think a different mic is used for full face - not sure on 1/2 helmet Jan 29, 2014

Kenneth K asked: I like to ride looong distance (IBA).
How many hours will the battery play the FM radio continuously?

Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
ROBERT W: I have not played the radio continuously. However I have played the radio, & listened to iTunes on my phone (bluetooth), and had some intercom conversations with another rider for 6 hours without turning it off. Not sure how long the battery will last past that. So far I am happy with the Sena. I hope this helps you with your decision.

Kenneth K: Thanx for the info. Jan 13, 2014
Dave B: I did a 4500 mile trip shortly after purchasing the SMH5-fm, so I had a good chance to test it. I had just replaced my helmet and left my original SMH10 on the old helmet. That was a choice that I somewhat regretted on my long trip. I can't answer the radio battery life question as I normally would use it for streaming audio from my iPhone. That battery life was typically 6-7 hours. My SMH-10 would routinely go 10-12 hours.

It'a a smaller unit, which is nice, however it comes at the expense of battery life. If I had to do it again, I would have bought another SMH10. Both units are outstanding, as long as you use them for their intended purpose.

DIEGO ALEJANDRO J: Hi, Kenneth I used many times the Bluetooth overall with the other functions, like a phone calls, intercomunications with passanger, phone music and FM stations, the total of hours before shutdown is close to 8 hours.

I never used the Bluetooth only in the FM aplication.

I liked this SMH5-FM.

A S asked: How many other people can you talk to other than the rider? Does this allow you to talk to 4 people as the higher priced unit does? May 1, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Jeffrey L: I have the SMH5-FM. It is a great headset. Very clear and most folks don't even know I am on a motorcycle. As far as how many people you can link to, the number is 4. However you can only talk to one person at a time. So if you were out riding with three friends, all 4 of you could all pair before the ride. You could then connect to friend 1 and talk. Then if you wanted to talk to friend 2, you would terminate the intercom with friend 1 and start a conversation with friend 2, etc. Basically there is no conference calling. All 4 persons can not be talking at the same time. Hope that helps. May 7, 2014

So far I am happy with it and would buy again if I needed one.

A shopper asked: Hi everybody. Could I please get some feedback on how well this setup works for hearing blue tooth turn by turn GPS voice navigation thru the speakers?

I’m looking for a bluetooth set up for really long distance sport touring (450 + miles per day for 2 to 3 weeks straight). I have an iPhone 4S, a 2004 Suzuki Hayabusa, and a 2010 Shoei RF100 full face helmet. I usually ride solo and stay with in reasonable speed limits. I need a set up that will work with one of the following iPhone iOS7 GPS apps: Google Maps, Tom-Tom, or MapQuest. I plan on downloading maps onto my iPhone and using the blue tooth speakers to get voice turn by turn directions as I am notorious for getting lost the first time I go anywhere. The speaker quality & compatibility with iPhone 4S is super super important to me. I will probably stream music from my iPhone while on the open road but really need voice directions the most.

Thanks for the help!
