Sena SMH5-FM Bluetooth Headset - Boom Mic 4.6 5 31 31
Excellent for FM Radio and Phone Calls If you ride a non-fairing bike and you're interested in FM radio and receiving phone calls via Bluetooth then this is the headset for you. Don't want FM radio? Step down one level and buy the non-FM model. Want to chat with riding buddies a half-mile away on the road? Step up a level for more communication distance. Sound quality with helmet speakers will never be the same as ear buds, but in many states it's illegal to ride with both ear buds anyway...so go with this, ride safe and legal. January 19, 2015
Worthless warranty, ok customer service. Bought a set of these at a discount retailer and one of the units had a broken USB port. Contacted the company and I was told that because I had bought the set through a discounter and not an "authorized retailer" that my warranty was not valid. No where in their warranty that is included with the product does it state that the warranty is null and void for purchasing through a non "authorized dealer". You have to read their website to find the info but no one will tell you that until after you have a problem. No one should have to go to multiple places to find out the conditions of a warranty. If a company really believes in their products, you would think they would stand behind their products. It would be different if I had been given them after years of use or bought them secondhand but I was the original purchaser just like their warranty stated. I am returning the set and will never own another product from them again. BUYER BEWARE!!!!!! December 3, 2014
feels like you live in the future! I've never had a helmet intercom before and its kind of awesome! The FM tuner is a very nice upgrade, moving through presets is a little clunky and trying to change to a station that is not set as a preset is a mess. But for the 5 stations (you can program more) i listen too the system works well once you get used the controls. Reception is not quite as good as a car stereo but that makes sense since its a much smaller antenna. Bluetooth also works well and being able to answer a call by saying "hello" when it its ringing feels very futuristic. People on the other end claim that they cant tell its an intercom, so very good sound quality and noise reduction on the mic. you can also use voice commands to call out, though this work much better with an iphone (you get full access to Siri) then with android (you can only makes calls and only from your contact list). I have not used the intercom feature. sound quality is not great on the highway for me in a shark Raw helmet, but im sure its better in a true full face helmet. the Raw is a just a loud helmet at speed because of the unique face mask Overall this has been perfect for me to use on the days when I commute on a bike.

great features Overall is a great product,still having difficulty when trying to power on!!!...it works but is frustrating pushing both buttons up and down and left and right until the unit powers on. I read other reviews concerning this same problem !!! September 22, 2014
Great bang for the buck I considered some of the higher level Sena sets but for the money you can't beat the 5. I use it mostly for bluetooth music and phone calls and it works great for both. I have one buddy that also has the 5 and we have done the voice comm a few times and it also works great. Being able to listen to each others music is an awesome feature. Battery lasts plenty long enough and the only reason I couldn't give it top marks for durability is I haven't had it out in a good rain yet. The FM version comes with the upgraded speakers which are worth the money and having the FM is a nice feature. September 15, 2014
Great product I love this headset. I always missed being able to listen to the radio. But not anymore. Reception isn't always the greatest if you live in the boonies like me, but it's pretty good. Sound quality isn't great as the speakers are small. But overall I love it. I can talk on the phone, have my gps connected, and still listen to the radio. Battery life is really good, I go the full week of my daily commute without a charge. It's also one of the most affordable out there. Highly recommended August 18, 2014
Great first time set This is my first bluetooth headset and I am glad I bought it. It was pretty easy to install and use with gloves on. I use it to stream audio from my iPhone and iPod and the audio sound is excellent. I do use the FM receiver once and a while and I would say it is fair. The reception is spotty depending on weather and the sound is about half the quality of my iPod. On my ride to work the FM sometimes cuts out and then on the ride home it works perfectly. You can also use it to stream the audio from the map on my iPhone. All and all it is a great deal and I should have bought one sooner! August 6, 2014
So far I love it! I have only used the smh5-fm a few times. The build quality is impressive, materials and design are solid. It takes a while to learn how to use all the functions with only two buttons but it's getting easier. Call quality is awesome. My boss and wife didn't believe I was going down the road at 45-50 when they called. The fm tuner is stronger than most small radios. I almost received a out of state station that my car radio also struggles with, local stations no problem. The bluetooth connection is great with no more earbuds falling out and wires getting caught. The Sena website is easy to use to set up the device. (One note you cannot save the radio presets until all 10 are filled in.) As far as the sound quality goes I feel it is acceptable coming from speakers the size of 3 stacked quarters. Yes the bass is low but it's fine. Lastly Revzilla was great. The item showed up fast, packaged like it was going to be dropped out of a plane and the price was the least expensive I found. If your thinking about it do it the ability to make and receive calls and hear your gps is very convenient during your commute or on a trip to a new place. July 28, 2014

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!
